A Scrapbook Layout for My Creative Time and BBTB2

Happy Cinco de Mayo and thanks for stopping by Okscrappinmama. I really like doing scrapbook layouts AND...I need to get caught up on the scrapbooks. My dd is in 4th grade and in Feb. she was one of 4 Fourth Graders and and 4 Fifth graders to compete in the school spelling bee.
Guess who won?? Yep!! My little fourth grader!! First time in 5 yrs a fourth grader has won it.

So, Emma at My Creative Time every 2 weeks on Monday will have "Scrappy Monday Layout Challenges. I thought it was the perfect time to enter a scrapbooking challenge AND get a layout done. By Sun 5/13

Also, at Bitten By The Bug 2--ladybug or bumblebee They are having a challenge to do a project with a ladybug or bumblebee using any cartridge). This seems the perfect thing to enter for the bumble bee. By 5/6


I actually did a double 12 x 12 LO. Just didn't show the 2nd page because it is the same paper but am attaching the Winners Certificate on the other page.

(These are directions for just ONE 12 x 12 page) Using Gypsy and Expression

Started out with black 12 x 12 cardstock. then using the rectangle from Ashlynn's Alphabet cut the cute little yellow dot bumble bee paper 6x11.75. Then with yellow cardstock cut(3) 9 x 3.33 rectangles from same cart. The tag is cut at 4.75 x 2.61 from TBBM in the bumble bee paper 4x and then 4x in black so I'd have some thickness for the tag when gluing bee tag on top of black tag. For the tags in the corner, I cut a little off the length because I wanted them shorter.

Finally, the wording is from Nates ABC's at 1.1" and grouped/welded together. Cut those 2x times to glue together for some paper thickness. The words that won the spelling bee on the tag in the corner are sticker letters from stickapottomus. I used eyelets on the tags, white organza and a yellow button with black twine in the holes. Twine on the corner tags too.

Bee cut from Create a Critter at 2" and the face was hidden so I could stamp a face from Peachy Keen Critter faces in black momento ink.

I had so much fun doing this layout--Thanks Emma for the reason to kick me into gear!! I plan on doing more on you challenges.

Thanks for letting me share everyone and have a super weekend.
