Water Wars

Hello my scrappy friends!  A quick post for you right now...I gotta eat!  Stomach is growling, guess that sandwich just wasn't enough five hours ago!

This layout was from 2010 featuring my daughter getting her water gun ready for a war with her brother!  They had such good times with their water guns.  I used Echo Park Happy Summer papers for this layout and some random papers from my stash...they all matched pretty well!  I'll be entering this into the Sketch In Thyme challenge #330.

Student of the Month

Hello my scrappy friends!  I was super busy this morning, running around for and with the kids.  When we got home, I ate a little but had a killer headache.  After a quick nap, I went straight to my scrap table and created this layout while listening to some great tunes!

This is my son from 6th grade a few years ago receiving a student of the month award in front of the superintendent and the school board!  He had great grades and was seen several times, and I think this is why he actually received the award, helping other students with various things, many of the students, his friends, having special needs.  He has always been the one to step up to help others, I pray he continues this path as he grows up.

I'll be entering my layout into the following challenges, just making the deadline for one of them!

You Are Loved

Hello my scrappy friends!  It's Thursday evening and I for one am ready for bed!  It's been a busy week and it's not quite over yet!  Tomorrow morning will have some running around but the afternoon should be mine!  I'll get my crafty table ready for a layout before I go to bed tonight.  But first, I layout I created this past week.

This is my daughter some years ago, crafting with her stuffed animals.  Wish she would do more crafting these days rather then being on her phone!

This layout will be entered into the following challenges:

"Lasting Memories" Scrapbook Layout ChallengesLasting Memories #400 - Stash Bashing - Rub-Ons.  My rub-ons are hard to see on the bluish colored paper.  The rub-ons say "you are my sunshine, you make me happy, you are my sunshine" and there is a butterfly next to the words.

Use Your StuffUse Your Stuff - Mood Board.  From the mood board on the blog, I used the sequins, banners and the bright colors as my inspiration.

Every Summer has a Story

Hello my scrappy friends!  Yesterday was one week into summer vacation for us and I feel as though I need a vacation!  Everyday there has been something to do, somewhere to go, something to buy!  I have, however, found some time to make a layout or two during this past week!

These pictures were from 2009, the summer after we moved into our new house!  It seems like a lifetime ago when the kids were this small.  I miss they are teens, just a little different!  Anyway, sports camp for this week, trying out new sports, basketball, soccer and baseball.  Fun and very hot week!  Across the lake were some cows that ran off from their farm, happened quite often.  Guess they were hot and needed to cool down in the lake!

I'll be entering this layout into Lasting Memories Challenge #401, Stash Busting - Paper Stash.  You need to use at least five different patterned papers.

Thanks for commenting and enjoy your Friday!!

Happy Father's Day!

Hello my scrappy friends!  Happy Father's Day to all of the dad's out there today!  I hope you are able to spend time with the dad's in your life.  I'll be spending today with my husband and children at home, doing laundry like most Sundays, and ordering some pizza, per his request!  We are a pretty easy, laid back kinda people!

Here is the card I made for my husband, using my Cricut Groovy Times cartridge.  Love all of the cute cuts on this one!

Climbing the Chair - Stick It Down Guest Desginer

Hello my scrappy friends!  I was recently asked to be a guest designer for the double layout sketch on the Stick It Down blog!  What an honor!!  Of course, I took it on and love what I created!

I used papers from my stash, some inks splattered around and the stamps and die cuts of the sea animals are from CTMH from years ago.  Amazing what you can find when you look through all of your stash!

Take a look at the blog, Stick It Down,  for not just the double page sketch but also the single page and card sketches!  They are fantastic this month! 

Have a lovely day!

14th year

Hello again my scrappy friends!  A (sort of) sad card for me...made for my daughter's 14th birthday.  How can she be 14 already?  It's going way tooooo fast!  We are blessed that she is a good girl, a good person always trying to help others when she can, a great student...her lowest grade is a 96, and does her chores when I only have to ask three or four times!  Guess you have to take the good with some of the could be worse, this I know!

Here is one of her cards.  Her birthday is tomorrow but her family party is later this month...there'll be another card for that!

I'll be entering my card into the challenge Kat Scrappiness Blog is hosting this weekend!

Also entering into Stick It Down card sketch....I've definitely used some creative license!  I did add the heart and alphas...the sketch full of letters was my inspiration!

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