Summer Challenges @ a Crop!

My LSS (Memory Mania), is hosting a list of "Summer Challenges".  Each week we are given a new challenge with specific critieria, ex: supply, theme, etc.  You get a stamp for each submitted layout and as long as you complete at least 4 layouts you get invited to a "End of Summer Crop".  6 stamps gets your name in a drawing for $50 drawing.  I completed the 3 next challenges at the night crop held this past friday.  Here are my entries:

Challenge:  Create a layout using the Bazzill pleats
"Toy Story Mania"
 Supplies: Studio Calico "Raygun" Kit

My favorite part of this layout was getting to use my silhouette to cut out the raygun and alien.

Challenge: Create a layout using GLUBERS
"Miss American & Surfer Boy"
 Supplies: October Afternoon PP "Captain's Log" (#PP-565), "Rocket Age" Miscellany (DC-145), Decal (#SS-271); Pink Paislee "Hometown Summer" Border Stickers (00466); Glubers; Crate Paper Trims "Toy Box Collection"; Studio Calico "Ray Gun" & "Countdown" Kits
 Used two strands of ribbon and some buttons along with a gluber to create the embellishment.
Funny story behind this layout.   I ran across the two left pictures while i was completing one of the photo assignments from BPC's "Finding Photo Freedom" class I am currently taking.  These pictures were taken back in 2006 on the 4th of July.  On the 4th of this year, Isabelle came outside to swim and she was wearing  a star spangled swimsuit again.  I showed her the pictures I found and we decided to recreate them.  Noah was quite as excited!  It's hard to believe how fast they grow up but 5 yrs makes a big difference.

Challenge: Create a current  “All About Me” layout
"All About Me, A to Z"
 Supplies: American Craft PP Hello Sunshine "Brillance" (35415), Thickers "Hardcover" (53135), Remarks "Emma" (42615), Trademarks "Eddie" (43118); Studio Calico Cardstock Alpha; Cosmo Cricket Ready Set Chip "Heart In The Dark" (RSC833), Tiny Type (TT577), (TT579), (TT580); Sassafrass "Cool Grey" (21187), "Script" (21185), "Blue Linen" (21183); Basic Grey "Hello Luscious" (HLO-3249), "Life of Party" (LOP-3160)
 When i saw the prompt for this assignment, I know exactly what i wanted to do.  Love A to Z layouts!
The challenges extend through the month of August.....Can't wait to see what's up next.
