TWO SplitCoast Challenges

Having the children home from school is a love/hate thing with me.  I am actually a much better mother if they are gone all day and I finish all my chores and girl-time.  On the other hand, when I don't have to get up on Monday morning and rush around trying to pack backpacks, deposit lunch money, find missing homework and bus passes - I actually get to do BOTH Monday SplitCoast challenges!

Set 291, 292 - Garden Collage, Burst Into Bloom

Today's Clean and Simple challenge on SplitCoast is a color challenge: Chocolate, Crumb, Wasabi and White:

This didn't turn out as exactly what I personally call CAS.  To me, CAS is a layer or two and a lot of white space.  But everybody has VERY different definitions of CAS so I went with it.  I love this small bird - I can't believe that I had never used this set.

Set 293 - Elegant Inspirations

Todays' technique challenge at SplitCoast was to make a ribbon bookmark.

I really never branch out into other paper crafts besides cards...not that I wouldn't want to but there are always cards to make for church.  This was a fun change for me...and I liked it...I might have to "branch out" more often!
