Challenge #118 Label It! {October 26 - November 9}

So it seems EVERYWHERE you look in the scrapbooking industry there labels!!
Labels stickers are taking over. They are being used for journaling, titles, name it!!!

So my challenge to you is this:
use 10 labels stickers on a page.

Can't wait to see how creative you can get!
Be sure to post your layout to the thread at 2 Peas and share it with us all :)

Debi: I have been wanting to try using many labels all lined up for my journaling!
A day in Boston with my family gave me the perfect pictures for this.

Debbi T: I love labels, but it was certainly a challenge to use 10! Like Debi, I used the labels for journaling. This is my adorable nephew who takes the funniest photos (unintentionally). This is going into my book of silly family photos!

Elizabeth: I decided to use the labels in a cluster as an embellishment collage. And the date is correct, I'm from Canada (and I am pretty proud of the fact that I have Thanksgiving pictures scrapped already! :P)

Challenge #1.1.7. {October 12 - October 25}

Hello everyone, welcome to another challenge of 'How Much is Too Much'.

For this week's challenge...

1 stamped image

1 felt embellishment

7 stickers (non-letter stickers, although you may also use those on your layout)

Pretty easy challenge this week, I hope you will play along!

Just post your layout to the Pub at 2peas so we can see your creation, happy creating!

Elizabeth: I had this layout half completed on my desk for a while now, this challenge was just what I needed to put the finishing touches on it.

Paula: I think I cheated a little here -- I knew I had to use a stamp but I didn't realize it was a stamped image -- I used stamped letters. Oops! The goofy title was was inspired by the October Afternoon paper! It fits with the goofy kids! I made the pear embellishment from an American Crafts felt tulip.

Debbi T: I was a little short on time this week, so I combined this challenge with Janelle's Sketch This challenge. I loved that we had to use stickers because I have so many in my stash. I feel like I cheated a little by using word/phrase stickers and label stickers, since I use those a lot, but I was pleased to use some of my more "cutesy" stickers, including that Cristina Cole border sticker that's been in my stash for at least half a decade.
That's me when I was nine. I don't know how I ripped the hole in my knee, but I'm sure I was probably very upset about it. Note to self: Ask mom about the hole in my tights.

Lisa: I was a little worried about this challenge when I saw that it included stamps. I love to collect them but am always afraid to use them on a layout. Once I started digging through my stash I found some great journaling tags to use! I think I went a little overboard with the felt and stickers, but if you gotta, you might as well use it, right?

Michelle: I purged 99% of my stamps recently; so I cheated just a little by using a date stamp. However, to make up for it, I used 2 pieces of felt (these American Crafts felt pieces have been in my stash forever) and 9 stickers (which includes some of my favorite Scenic Route Grafton stickers).
