Punky Scraps 2012 COME BACK Tour! (and Blog Hop)

Punky Scraps Challenge blog is back!

We are here to meet the design team and VERY SPECIAL GUEST STARS.
For me, the roster reads like a who's who of amazing art style scrappers.
I'm very glad to be in the mix with this talented group.
Please try to hit up all the blogs and leave love.
There are some great prizes for those who hop and leave tracks.
There is also a sketch at the end that you can use to apply to be the next Punky Rebel.
Tell me THAT'S not awesome!

Before you skip off, here are a few facts about me:
  • I tend to be all over the place in style and theme. 
  • I like romantic flowers and swirls as much as I like neon color and bold modern patterns. 
  • I like minimalism but I tend to be a throw it all in there and see what sticks type.
  • I scrap for my current whim, not for posterity.
  • Much of my work uses pop dots, transparent elements and/or strips, circles and stars.
  • Favorite patterns are woodgrain, graph paper and sunrays.
  • Favorite "current" trends are triangles, pie charts and chevron patterns.
Here are some of my PUNKY PAGES from 2011:
Be. For a sketch challenge- I went as minimal as this girl ever gets.
This was for a "Get Picky" challenge were fellow team members each choose 1 element that
had to be added to the page- talk about RANDOM- a GREAT thinking challenge! 
FDR. I frequently glue string on a page to avoid actually sewing it on.
Also arrows. Arrows are awesome.
245 Days. My favorite photo of my Mom EVER.
Co-credit for this page goes to fellow Punky crafter Marie who designed the sketch. 
If You Believe. Kraft paper, gold mist and Crafter's Workshop stencils? YES PLEASE!
One of my all time favorite pages- water color that I messed up... is awesome!
