Smash*Aholics Challenge - Animal

Another page in my Smash Book complete! This weekends challenge was "Animal". Just "smash" a page about an animal. Easy peasy for me! This is my cat Marbles and I caught him in mid yawn, he's a cat he sleeps a lot ya know. :-) I have been trying to use up my scraps in my smash book. It's working out well, I have a pile on my desk and it keeps getting smaller.

Retro Sketches # 17 - Feeling Crappy?

Hey all! Here is another challenge card I created during the 12 hour crop in South Carolina over the weekend.  We were searching for some new challenge blogs and Sam found this one, Retro Sketches! I loved the layout and it made for a great card! While at the crop we did some shopping (of course) and found this hilarious Unity Stamp. It was so perfect for my fiance that I had to immediately make a card. He is always saying everything is crappy, it's like a running joke. He calls me going to a "Crop" is really are you going "Crapping" etc.....

Lawnscaping Challenge #36 - Color Splash

What a weekend! I had such a blast. I went to South Carolina to visit my bestie Samantha. Her local scrapbook store was having a 12 hour crop, which is great cause it's 3 mins from her hours (So Awesome!). We were pretty productive, I have to say! I got a couple challenges done and some SMASH pages completed. Oh! And some shopping :-) 

This card is for the Lawnscaping Challenge #36 - Color Splash! I used three Lawn Fawn Stamp Sets. I am addicted to hot/bright/neon colors at the moment and I went with it!

Smashing Summer Challenge!

I just got into SMASHING! It's easy scrapbooking or well the old style of scrapbooking. Just get your photos and ephemera together and glue it down. Easy peasy right?! Well of course we have all these embellishments and glitter to make the pages pretty! :-) I found a Smash challenge blog and group on Facebook called SMASH*Addicts! This challenge was to do a two page spread on Summer Fun! I decided to do mine on our new scooters and scooter club! We have been traveling all over with our new scooter club!!! Yes, we are like the gang from the movie Larry Crowne with Tom Hanks!!!

Hey all! Sorry, I have been MIA recently! I have been super busy at work and by the time I get home I am beat. I only have the strength to open my craft room door (see the mess) and close it! lol  I wanted to let all of my followers know where they can find me on the web! 

I have two aliases, GirlRacerPhoto and GirlRacerScrap, I didn't want to have both names for most social media outlets. 

You can "Subscribe" and check out haul videos, and more over at

See something I made that you like? You can probably buy it over at my Etsy Store!

I have also added a "Calendar" section on my blog, I want to post Crops, Classes, and more for the Central Florida Area. This way you can check to see what is happening, if you are on vacation in the area or are a resident and want to know whats happening! You never know if there is a store hidden away or a crop in your neighborhood! You can find the calendar here

I also do Store Reports!!! Some are local to Central Florida and some I find on my travels! I will go back and post if I find out the store has gone out of business. :-( You can check them out here
