The Scrap Room - Crate Paper

Hello everyone!  I'm back with another project made with the AWESOME Flavor of the Month kit from The Scrap Room.  

This layout is made with the GORGEOUS papers from Crate Paper - Hello Love.  Oh my gosh this paper is so pretty!  I honestly couldn't wait to get busy making a layout.  

You really should go over and check out The Scrap Room kits.  I really think you would love to getting one of these kits each month.  I know I did!

Thanks for stopping and looking!   Until next time...happy scrapping!

February Sketches in Thyme Challenge

Hello my friends!

It is that time again for me to share a layout I made with one of the awesome sketch challenges this month at Sketches in Thyme!  My sketch is by the fantastic sketch designer (and my buddy), Rochelle Spears!  And it is gorgeous and inspirational as usual.

My BFF, Denise and I challenged ourselves to make a layout together which was really a bit of a challenge since she was in California and I am in Oklahoma!  She finished hers first because I'm a bit of a piddler but I did finally get mine finished and I'm thrilled with how it turned out!  You are going to love working with this fun sketch too!!

Well....what do you think?  I used one of the photos I took of my hubby and kids at Christmas.  Did you take as many photos this holiday season as I did?!  I took about 400 photos and how do I know this you ask?  Because I saw a great photo processing discount at Walgreen's and developed them all!!    Yay to actually printing my photos!!!  lol  I usually just have them add up on my memory card (or phone memory) until I eventually download them onto my computer.  (I know...not a good idea)  Anyway, my point is that I now have a ton of photos to scrap!

I am challenging myself this year to make at lease 50 layouts.  I honestly think this is a doable number and hope to blow past this amount.  How about you?  Any scrappy goals this year?  Share!

Now you need to rush over to Sketches in Thyme and get inspired to join the challenge!

Thanks for stopping and visiting today.  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Guest Designer for The Scrap Room!

Hello friends!

I have some great news to share!  I was asked to be a guest designer for February at The Scrap Room!  I hope you get a chance to go check out the awesome kits that they have available.  I was lucky enough to get to work with the Flavor Of The Month kit.  Look at all the awesomeness!

Here is what is included in this kit:

Have you ever wanted to be a Guest Designer and get a kit to work with for free!?  Each month The Scrap Room will post a sketch challenge, and from the entries they will invite one person to Guest Design with them for one month.  TSR Kit Club subscribers and non-subscribers are encouraged to play along.

The person chosen, will be awarded a Flavor of the Month Kit and be required to create 3+ layouts using the kit, which will be featured on The Scrap Room.  If selected you must be willing to complete your projects within their deadline.

So if you are interested in becoming a guest designer for The Scrap Room you will need to make a layout using this sketch and enter it in the Guest Designer Sketch Challenge over on The Scrap Room blog:

Here is my first project as a Guest Designer using Studio Calico - Seven Paper and the Guest Designer Sketch Challenge sketch:

Don't you just love that paper?  I'm not sure I would have ever thought to mix the black, yellow and blue but I love how it looks all together!  And it was super fun to work with the February Sketch Challenge sketch.  You need to head on over to The Scrap Room and be inspired by all the other designers!

And be sure and check back here because I will have more projects to share throughout the month using all the goodies in this kit.

Thanks for stopping by today and looking!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

January Sketches in Thyme Challenge

Welcome to 2016!! 

Here is my first post of 2016.  Yes, I'm a bit lame and haven't posted anything yet this year.  I figure I should start things out with a bang and share my layout using the newest sketch challenge at Sketches in Thyme!  This sketch is by the very prolific sketch designer, Bev Code.  I was inspired to turn the sketch and use two photos instead of 3.

I couldn't help but use these totally adorbs photos of my god daughter's baby, Myla!  Baby photos are the best to use, right?!  I was inspired to use the colors red, white and blue by the January Challenge at Scrap Our Stash. The challenge is to look at a book cover and be inspired by it in some way and you must use white paint or paint splatters too.  I used a stencil on the white card stock background and I splattered on some red, blue and white Heidi Swapp Color Shine. It was fun making the base paper myself!

Well, what do you think?  Like it?  Inspired to go scrap?? If so, rush over to Sketches in Thyme and get a good look at that sketch and then go get to scrapping!

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

Scrap Our Stash Challenge

Hello my friends!  Glad you had time to stop and check out my blog today!  I went to our monthly Scrap Diva's crop and managed to get some layouts made!  WOO HOO!  Spending time with friends and scrapping...that's always great, right?  I was inspired to do the challenge at Scrap Our Stash.  

There is a sketch challenge plus a bingo card.  I did the diagonal B row from left to right.  (Brown, Doily, FREE, Kraft and Graph Paper)  This bingo was really a challenge for me!  (me with big eyes)

Here is what I came up with:

Shabby Chic isn't really my forte but I'm happy with how it came out.   I'm back to baby photos again...(smile)  Who doesn't love a baby photo??!!

Thanks for stopping and looking today! Until next time...happy scrapping!
