Apronstrings Birthday party!

Woohoo! well, after the December sketch challenges ended, i was glad to ggo back to another month long challenge series! you can find it here at the Apron Strings Blog I'll be posting my creations here, and if you think you can take me on, BRING IT ON, SISTA! :-)
here's the rules- cut and pasted from the blog

Yep, it's Apron Strings' birthday today!! Five years ago today the first kits went live (see below) -- autoship would follow two months later. Oh the changes in just the last five years - not only in what I've learned, the way that Apron Strings has grown and all the fantastic members I've met both face-to-face and online, but changes in the scrapbook industry as well (two of the companies in those first Apron Strings kits are gone now.) :( However, I'm proud that not only is Apron Strings still around and going strong, where others have closed, but in the wonderful club it has grown into.

Okay, while it's fun, and often funny, to look back that's enough sentiment because there's more fun to be had in the celebration that will continue all month long, here on the blog. And while I love me some presents (just ask my husband, LOL), presents are going out to you all who play along.

"How can I get some presents?" you may be asking. Here are the ways you can enjoy Apron Strings' birthday month!

1. Participate in the challenges each week -- one winner will be chose from those who complete each challenge during the week.

2. At least one (I'm not decided yet) overall winner will be chosen from those who complete all the challenges during the month.

3. One random winner will be chosen from those who do at least one challenge from each week - you only need to complete one challenge from the week to be eligible for this random drawing.

4. If you're a "follower" of the blog, you could be chosen as a winner. If you haven't registered as a follower, now's the time, it could pay off in a Birthday Cookie Treat. (Spread the love and tell a friend who may not be following.)

Ok, so here's mine so far, editing to add new creations

DAY 1- This used a TTT kit from i think November of 2006- i THINK my oldest kit, or pretty close.

Day 2- LOOOOOVE this layout :)

Day 3- love it, and did not so much love the long, drawn out experience of scanning and stitching with PSE. I'm going to HAVE to figure out a faster program to use becuase this will drive me mad, and we get little to no sunlight this time of year for using the camera!!
