BASF Scrap Madness...Halfway...

Hey, we are already just over the halfway point & there are about 60 challenges, Sketches, Games & tips listed. Here are some I have done so far.
Me & my youngest brother Mario on his 5th birthday, This was sketch challenge # 1 by Monice but I do not know where it was taken from.
This is all 4 of us. This challenge was the "recipe" challenge. The ingredients..cardstock only, ribbon, metal, bling, flower & ink. The requited techniques...stamping, heat embossing, & punching.
This was a card sketch from 3/7. I am sorry I cannot give credit to the original sketch artist because it wasn't listed. But I really liked it.
Mo is my youngest brother Mario, when he was little we called him that. He was such an adorable kid. These were taken as he went on his first fishing trip wit my Dad. The LO was from sketch # 2 again, no info on the original artist.

This LO is of both brothers. The challenge was "Lets Get Scrappy" Besides the back sheet, we could only use scraps from our stash. Mine is actually all done with scraps, even the base page. I had 2 larger pieces that I put together using the plaid as its anchor.

Well, I need to go work on some more challenges. There are some good ones over there...Check it out:

Nieces & Nephews

I do not have any kids of my own so my nieces & nephews are the next best thing. I don't think it is possible to love them more if they were my own. Plus, they go away..LOL

I have 5 nieces & nephews, they have provided me 7 great nieces & nephews. WOW. I just thought I would share my little pieces of happiness.
This is Hailee & Devin. Could you just eat them up. How beautiful is this shot. My niece Kristina took this of 2 of her brothers kids. Just melts my heart.

This is Kevin with his oldest son Kevin Jr. (the above 2 belong to him as well) Little Kevin is such a beautiful soul. I miss them lots.
Here is sweet little Hayden. OMG he is so adorable. He belongs to Erika & Russell
These 2 terrors...I mean cuties belong to my sweet Kristina & Shane

Joey, little Joey. Erica's brother. He is all grown up now...
What a handsome boy. He is in colege now playing Soccer. He will go far.

The Smiths...wait, how did Karen get in here? Well, it is because of her I have most of this beautiful family to call mine.
