July Sketches in Thyme Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog!

Have you checked out the newest sketch challenge over at Sketches in Thyme??  I was lucky enough to get to work with this month's first awesome sketch by Jenessa Franco.  It really got my creative juices going.  

I took out some papers from one of the kits I recently got from The Scraproom. (If you haven't checked out their kits yet you really need to go do it!  Great kits for great prices!)  My older daughter has been complaining that I haven't been scrapping her enough (smile) so I grabbed these cute photos that I took of her at the park.  I followed the sketch pretty closely and I love how it turned out!  (My daughter did too! ha)

Sketches in Thyme has the best sketch challenges and I'm sure you are going to want to go over and take a look this month at the 4 separate sketches that you can use to get your mojo going!  You can enter as many times as you like to get your name in the hat for the monthly prize drawing.

Thanks for dropping by today.  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Scrap Our Stash June Sketch +3 Challenge

Hello and welcome!  

Since I was lucky enough to be chosen to be a guest designer over at Scrap Our Stash this month I made this layout for the Sketch +3 Challenge.  I am always inspired by sketches and love this sketch  by Brenda Ragsdale!  It really made for an exciting challenge!!  

My Flavor of the Month kit from The Scraproom had some fabulous papers to chose from so I grabbed some and got started.  I decided to use one large photo instead of 4 smaller photos. I printed out a great shot of my daughter in a 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 size and matted it on white paper.  I thought that with the feather paper being a bit busy I would just keep things clean and simple.  I wrapped the title work around the photo and added a few embellishments.  Then I called it done. 

My +3 are from List 1- Polka Dots, from List 2 - Quartz and from List 3 - Red.  I'm loving how it turned out!  I hope you are too!!

You need to go on over to SOS and join in on the great challenges this month!!  I had fun with them and I know you will too!

Thanks for stopping by and looking today!

Until next time...happy scrapping!

Scrap Our Stash June Guest Designer!!

Welcome to June and to my blog today!!  I'm excited to announce that I was asked to be a guest designer over at Scrap Our Stash this month!  When I heard I will thrilled to bits!  I just love their challenges!  Don't you?  

Their first challenge for June is to be inspired by the book cover for How To Surprise a Dad and to use pops of yellow on your layout too.  The book cover has a father on it and he is reading to his kids so of course I was inspired to use a photo of my goddaughter's husband and her daughter taking one of their first walks together.  She just learned to walk and I think that this photo was just too precious not to scrap!

I used a sketch made by Brenda Ragsdale from her Scrappy Friends challenge this month.  I turned the sketch on it's side and since I was also was inspired by the colors on the mood board from Kelly at Scrappy Friends I pulled these gorgeous papers out to use.  I totally meant to add a butterfly to one of my flowers for Rochelle's part of their group challenge but I left it sitting on my scrap desk!  Oh well....maybe I will remember next time.  (smile)

The papers are from my Flavor of the Month kit from The Scraproom.  YUM!  Aren't they just the best?!  I saw this floral sheet and just had to fussy cut some of the flowers out for my POPS of YELLOW.  I love how they just jump off of that black card stock base.  

I had such fun making this layout!  You need to rush out and join in on these challenges this month too!  Think of all the scrapping you can be inspired to do!  Thanks for dropping by and checking out all the scrappy goodness!! 

Until next time...happy scrapping!

Family Fun

Hi there!

Here is another post from me today!!  I think this is a record!! lol  I really like this layout for some reason.  It just seems pretty clean and simple but not too simple if you know what I mean.  I made it for the Freaky Fast Friday Challenge over that The Scraproom.  I used gorgeous paper from my Flavor of the Month kit and fun photos of my goddaughter and her family at a country club.  

I think this might be my last post tonight. I'm glad you came by to visit!  

Until next time...happy scrapping!
