Perfect Presents

Hello my scrappy friends!  I attended a day crop last weekend but only just put the final touches on some of the LOs I made.  One of them is below, taking inspiration from Scrap Our Stash blog, March Saturday Cartoon Inspired Stash Challenge.

The challenge is to use the given sketch, which I used pretty closely, to use green embellishments and to be inspired by the Snoopy cartoon.  I have green in the patterned papers and green enamel dots.  Snoopy always reminds me of being a kid, so scrapping these pictures of my daughter was a no brainer!
This challenge ends on march 29th so you have plenty of time to enter!

Have a great day and thanks for commenting~

Hello my scrappy friends!  Like so many others, I've been feeling under the weather for just a little more then one week....getting tired of being tried and stuffy.  but I still have a bit of energy to create my scrappy pages!!

This LO is using pictures from a Poconos vacations in August 2013.

I used my Cricut to cut all of the hexagons and my title.  The word pieces are cut from that background paper as the opposite side is full of words and phrases.....hence the two strips of pps running across that LO...had to cover up the holes!

This LO will be entered into the Pick 3 challenge by Soul Scrappers blog.  Check it out, the challenge ends February still have one week to enter.

11th birthday

Hello my scrappy friends!  I hope everyone is enjoying their three-day weekend!  some snow here on the east coast but not where I live...kinda thankful for that.  

Here is a layout I just created for a few blogs, featuring my son's family birthday party.  I opened a new paper pack, That's My Boy by Echo Park that I received for Christmas.  The colors worked well but that blue banner sheet....the sports theme on it I'm not loving but it's a completed LO!

I'll be submitting this LO into these challenges:

Awesome Memories...Laugh

Hello my scrappy friends!  Thank God for weekends and adult beverages!  It's been that kind of a week.  I'm sure next week will be so much better!!

Today, I'm sharing a layout I made of our son's 11th birthday.  We always have a family party for our kids with aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins.  But on their actual birthdays, we have a little party for them ...just parents and siblings.  Heck, we do that for me and my husband too!  This year when he turned 11 years old, Declan was in boy scouts, learning "man" things so the best gift he received was this pocket knife!  He whittled for hours, and for so many years after this.

This LO was created foremost for my GDT submission at Lasting Memories challenge #429 -
Use Trims - Ribbon, Lace, Paper Strips, or Washi Tape  I used three pieces of different Washi Tapes underneath my pictures.
"Lasting Memories" Scrapbook Layout Challenges 

I'm also submitting this LO into these challenges:
Creative Inspiration - Thursday Stash challenge, 1/10/19 

Shopping Our Stash - #385 - Winter Blues.  My LO isn't winter blues, but I've mostly blues for my patterned papers and embellishments.

Shooting Practice - LM #428

Hello my scrappy friends!  This was the week we went back to school, just 3 days but it felt like two weeks!  So hard to wake up in the morning and go through our daily routine, but we made it to the weekend!  I slept pretty well and my kids are still sleeping at 8:15am!  So different when my daughter wakes at 5am and my son finally drags himself out of bed by 6am for showers!  Enough about sleep, if I keep talking about it, I may just go back to bed!

This week for my Guest Designer assignment at Lasting Memories, we had to use bling, buttons, brads, sequins or enamel dots for challenge #428.  On my layout, I used enamel dots, eyelets and nuvo drops.

Take a look at the challenge this week at Lasting Memories and use your stash!!  thanks so stopping by and commenting!  Have a wonderful weekend!!

Just Add Ribbon!

Hello my scrappy friends!  I hope your Christmas was great with friends, family, food and presents!!  We went to my parents house as is tradition and had a fabulous time!!

I made several different cards for Christmas this year.  Today, I'm sharing two of them for a challenge on Soul Scrappers.  Quite an easy challenge, just add ribbon!

The first card's ribbon is really ribbon, the second card is a die cut of a ribbon!  The first card is made from my scrappy stash of ribbon and paper.  The sentiment stamp is from SU! retired Hang your Stocking set.  The second card is made from cardstock patterned papers from my stash.  All of the stamps and die cuts are from SU! as well, Making Spirits Bright and Christmas Pines (not sure if this one is retired).

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!  Have a fantastic night!!
