Last Day of September


I have a couple of layouts to share today.  On Saturday I got a crazy idea and rearranged my scrap room.  Everything isn't back in place yet but I am LOVING it so far!!  It seems much roomier in my new configuration.  I will share a photo but only positive feedback please!! LOL

Anyway, the new configuration has me itching to scrap even though I haven't got things put up yet.  So, this morning I finished up two layouts that I started when I was at the Scrap Society Dr. Seuss Crop a couple of Saturdays ago.

I was inspired to make the first one after seeing the 1, 2, 3, A, B, C Challenge at Scrap Our Stash.  I used 1 journaling card, 2 photos, 3 patterned papers and for "A" I used an arrow, for "B" I used a balloon and for "C" I used chevrons.

I also had a ton of fun stamping and splattering paint on the background!

The second layout was inspired by two challenges.  The sketch challenge at Sketches in Thyme.  I loved the gorgeous sketch by Bev Code!!

September 1 Sketch

And I was also inspired by Paula's "Wacky Holidays" Guest Designer Challenge at Sketches4all.  I decided to celebrate Grandparents Day.  The layout is my children's grandmother....my mother.

That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping and looking today!!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Scrappy Monday!

Happy Monday everyone!   Have you been scrappy lately?  I have and I have a few things to share today. Let's start with a card I made for Fia' September Sketch Challenge with a twist (add orange) at Sketches4all.

Definitely added the orange didn't I?! ha  I used the new Graphic 45 collection "An Eerie Tale Collection".  I love that there is always a side of the paper that is "neutral" with G45.  Meaning that you wouldn't realize that this was Halloween paper would you?

Last Saturday, my friend Rochelle and I went to the Scrap Society Dr. Seuss all-day Crop.  Boy was it fun!!  We scrapped all day, there were games and prizes and yummy snacks.  Everyone was fun and it really was just a total blast!  Here is one of the layouts I made while I was there.  I made it for the Scrappy Friends Challenges.  Brenda's sketch challenge, Kelly's Color Combo Challenge and Rochelle's Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  (I picked the TAC row down - Stitching, Numbers and Jewels)

Here is a layout I made in July while I was on vacation in St. Barths and have never shared!  Look!  Here is my hubby sitting at the table where all my scrap stuff is out.

And here is the view I had while scrapping:

Anyway, I put it aside to journal on it and then promptly forgot about it... ha  (The journaling is on the back.  My son wanted it to be private)  

Yesterday, I spent most of the day making Christmas cards.  Yes, I know it is only September but I recently bought a few new Christmas Paper collections and have been eager to make something with them.  Are you as obsessed with Christmas paper packs as I am?!  I know it is crazy to buy so many but I just can't resist!! ha

A few of the cards are gift card holders too.  I will be sharing these cards soon with a little tutorial on how to make the gift card holder cards.  I squeezed in a couple of Halloween cards too!  One if for a DT Challenge for October so you will have to wait to see it too!

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

Sharing on Saturday!

Happy Saturday!  I'm enjoying my weekend.  How about you?  I have two layouts to share today.  The first one I made for Paper Secrets - September 1st challenge.  You have to use this sketch by Lanette Erickson that I turned:

And items that spell out LABOR.  I used Letters, Arrow, Border, Overlay, Rubon.

My second layout to share, I made because I was inspired by the writing on the paper.  I really liked what it said so I sent my kid outside with my camera to take a photo of our house.  I'm entering it in Cheryl's Flower challenge at Sketches4all.

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by and looking.  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!  I'm happy it is the weekend.  How about you?  I haven't quite gotten back into the whole school routine yet. ha

I wanted to share a layout I made.  I am going to enter it at Color Me Scrappy in their Back to School challenge.

And I plan to add it to the Scrap Our Stash Back to School Challenge.  You are required to add certain items to your layout and I added from list A - Lined Paper, and from list B - Books, Ruler, Paper Clip, Alphas and an Apple.

I have a couple more layouts to share but I haven't gotten photos taken yet....so keep an eye out for another post soon.

Have a great weekend!!  Until next time...happy scrapping!
