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.

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!!

Good Cheer

Hello my scrappy friends!!  I finally finished a layout I've had on my desk for a few weeks.  Just haven't found the time to scrap like I've wanted.  I used lots of scraps, ink all around, twine, punches, ink splatters, and my Cricut for the title (Base Camp cartridge).

These pictures are of my daughter in 2014 under our Christmas tree, decorating it with her ornaments.  We were pretty late in the season for buying a tree so she was quite eager to hang everything she could on it!  We had such a fun time!

I'll be entering my LO into the following blog challenges:

Rochelle Spears December Paper/Sketch challenge
If you click on the above link, you'll be taken to Rochelle's blog to view the sketch that is to be used, along with snowflake patterned paper.

Scrap with Stacy: Scrappy Friends challenge

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.
