Hello people!

Here's my August project for Sketches in Thyme.  There is a fun sketch up on the blog right now and I used my Flavors of the Month kit from The Scraproom to make it.  LOVE this photo of my goddaughter's daughter.  (my god grand baby)  She is just a pure joy. 


Go over to Sketches in Thyme and be inspired to scrap this month!  You might even win the prize they are offering!

Thanks for coming over and looking today!

Until next time...happy scrapping!

Hot fun in the summertime
Hot fun in the summertime
Hot fun in the summertime

First of the fall and then she goes back
Bye, bye, bye, bye there
Them summer days, those summer days

Now it's time for my 

July 2018 Song Inspiration/Word or Phrase Challenge:

The song for July is:
All of the Stars by Ed Sheeran

It's just another night
And I'm staring at the moon
I saw a shooting star
And thought of you
I sang a lullaby
By the waterside and knew
If you were here
I'd sing to you
You're on the other side
As the skyline splits in two
Miles away from seeing you

But I can see the stars from America
I wonder, do you see them too?

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home

I can hear your heart
On the radio beat
They're playing 'Chasing Cars'
And I thought of us
Back to the time
You were lying next to me
I looked across and fell in love
So I took your hand
Back through lamp-lit streets and knew
Everything led back to you

So can you see the stars over Amsterdam?
Hear the song my heart is beating to?

So open your eyes and see
The way our horizons meet
And all of the lights will lead
Into the night with me
And I know these scars will bleed
But both of our hearts believe
All of these stars will guide us home

And, oh, I know
And oh, I know, oh
And I know oh oh oh

I can see the stars from America

Best Furiends and Furever Friends


Hello!!

I wanted to share the first layout my 10 year old daughter made.  


also this layout I made using the same paper collection.


I think she did a much better job than me!! lol  I helped her a little bit when she asked but she mostly did her's on her own.  I'm so excited she's interested in scrapping!!  When she finished with her layout she immediately asked when we could scrap together again!!

I'm happy you stopped and looked today.  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Little Man

Hi peeps!

How's life?  I'm enjoying summer over here at my house.  I made this layout of my goddaughter's son that I wanted to share with you.  I did a bit of stitching on here.  I got the We R Memory Keepers Stitch Happy sewing machine and I really don't like it at all.  It's so cheaply made.  I definitely don't recommend anyone buy it. bleh.   


I do love like how this layout turned out though.  I hope you like it too!

Thanks for visiting my blog today!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Our Wish Came True

I want to share this layout I made of my kids.  I love the colors in the patterned papers. I love how they pop off the black card stock. This came together really quickly.  


This is such a fun photo of my kids when they were little.

I'm happy you stopped by today.  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Happy Girls are the Prettiest

Welcome to the blog!

Here's a layout I made at a crop recently that I wanted to share.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  How could it not with that beautiful baby girl on it!?


I can't believe it is summer already.  It's already in the 100's here in Las Vegas.  But the pool is nice  and when it's too hot I can come inside in the air conditioning and scrap right?  lol

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

I hope you like my layout and that you are heading over the Sketches in Thyme right now to get the sketch and play along!

SCT365 2018 February

Hello!

I've been taking the Scrapbook and Cards Today SCT365 2018 online class with my friend, Rochelle.
Each month there is a double page layout for us to complete (also card inspiration too).  We are trying to do each double page every month.  So far, so good! lol  I'm sharing them backwards since this is February but I don't have the photo for January here on my computer so February it is! (wink)
The subject of my layouts is my sweet daughter, Olivia.

My paper is from one of my kits from the Scrap Room.


I really am happy with how it turned out.  How about you?

I'll have the January one up soon and probably a bunch more layouts since I'm trying to catch up on my blogging.  

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