Christmas 2009

Hello my scrappy friends!  Here is a LO I created at the beginning of the month but just put the journaling on it today.  I used lots of scraps for the snowflakes and tried inking them but they still don't stand out very well.  There isn't even a title but the pictures are great and I love them!!  I have so many other pictures from this Christmas, I'm sure those layouts will be better.

Lasting Memories - #421, Using watercolors, paints, and/or misting.  I used misting and sprays and drops of ink.

Happy Thanksgiving my scrappy friends!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday yesterday, ate too much food and were able to find some great deals when shopping today!!

Here is a double LO of my son's 11th birthday party with some friends.  I was inspired by a few online blog challenges for the sketch, embellishments and journaling.

Scrap with Stacy - Song Inspiration, "Thank You'" by Led Zepplin.  I used the words smiles, smile and happiness on my LO and in my journaling.

Lasting Memories - Stamping - Use two or more...I used two different stamps, stamped three times...a stitched and solid star, both from CTMH.

Let's Scrap - Sketch 11/15 - I loved this sketch but my LO got away from me a bit!  At least the pictures are in the correct spots, just switched the pages.

Halloween card

Hello my scrappy friends!  Here is a card I made the other day for one of my nieces for Halloween.  I used a sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap,  #131.  I really like the banners on this one, easy was to add several holiday patterned papers!

I actually received a phone call this evening from my niece was yelling thanks for the card in the background!  Gotta love 5 year olds!

Love Cake

Hello my scrappy friends!  A quick LO here for you today on this beautiful October afternoon!  

This is a layout of my daughter during her family birthday party when she turned 6 years old.  Miss that age!  I was inspired by Scrap Our Stash October's Blend a Sketch challenge.  I used the banner, stamped circles and diagonal patterned paper from the right sketch and from the left, I used the mixture of bottom paper (I used hearts rather then dots) and card stock for the top and the cluster of embellies upper left corner.

Sketches In Thyme

Hello my scrappy friends!  It's been a while since I've posted.  School has started, I now have two in high school, freshman and sophomore, and I've been working a temporary job as a secretary in a local town's elementary school.  Two more weeks for this job and I can clean my house and make some doctor appointments for some check ups!

Onto my sketches and layouts.  Sketches In Thyme is a great blog for challenges!  I've used two of their sketches for the month of September.  Sketch #340 is first up.  "Stop drowning me!" showcases one of the many times we've gone to the lake over the years.  My daughter always to jump on her brother's back for a ride!  Even though he was really yelling stop drowning me, he was laughing the entire time...partially drowning himself!  I've used the banner and and embellishment clusters as my inspiration as I switched the sketch upside down!

Sketch #341 inspired me to create #PHOTOBOMBGG...that would be great-grandma!   She died this past January, making it emotional to create this LO.  However, seeing her face smiling at us taking a picture at my son's 11th birthday party five years ago made it so wonderful!  She would have laughed at this LO...after we explaining the definition of photo bombing!
