Tons to Share!

I have a lot to share with you today so let's just jump right in and get started!  lol  Yesterday my friend, Rochelle, came over to scrap (Yipee!!) and I finally managed to finish up 5 (yes, count them...5) layouts!! (you will only get to see 4 of them today....the other one is for a DT assignment for September.  I'm so happy that school is back in session and we can have our scrap days together again!! ha

Here is the first one to show you.  This one started with the August 1st sketch challenge at Sketch N Scrap.  The gorgeous sketch is from Lisa Hidy.

 I love this collection from Simple Stories.  GORGEOUSNESS!  I'm also entering this challenge in Pat's OLW (one little word) "Sunshine" challenge at Sketches4all.

My next layout is for the August 1st challenge at Paper Secrets.  You are required to use the sketch (this one is by Kelly Holifield and is beautiful!)

and use product that spells out the word SWIM.  I used S-Sticker, sequins, W - wood, washi  I - ink, M - misting.  The photos are from our anniversary vacation to St. Barth in the French West Indies.  I'm obsessing over wooden embellishments so expect to see them on everything! lol  I'm entering it in Pat's OLW challenge too!!

My next layout is for 3 different challenges - the Scrappy Friends Challenges.  The first a sketch challenge by Brenda Ragsdale at  GrandDiva's Creative Corner.

The second is Rochelle's Tic Tac Toe challenge at Through the Eyes of Rochelle Spears 

and the 3rd is Kelly's color challenge at Creating with Paper and More.

Here is my layout.  I used a first day of school photo on it and did some hand stitching.  I'm entering it in Rachelle's Somewhere Over the Rainbow Challenge at Sketches4all.

This next layout is one I made while on vacation in St. Barths.  (I actually scrapped two layouts while I was there.)  I am entering it in Cheryl's Fabric challenge at Sketches4all.  I trimmed out two hearts from some satin and added them to the layout.

The last thing to share is a card that I made literally from stuff I picked up from my scrap room floor!!  I was picking up stuff that had fallen onto the floor and layering in one hand while picking up with the other and noticed that the patterned paper, stamped flower, sequins, ribbon and the button all seemed to go together and when the next thing I picked up was a stamp I decided it was kismet!  lol  I immediately stopped cleaning and threw together this card because it just made me laugh that all the pieces were off the floor.

Monday was the first day of school for my 5 kids.  I now have 2 in elementary school (a 1st grader and a 3rd grader), 1 in middle school (7th grader) and two in high school (two 9th graders - where has the time gone!?!).  We are getting up this year at 5:30am to get the older boys to marching band by 6:40am.  It is kind of crazy around here in the morning but it is working for us so far! ha

Thanks for stopping by and looking at all my projects today!!  Until next time...happy scrapping!
