Back Porch Memories

Happy Monday!!  I'm super excited because tomorrow I leave to go on my annual Arts and Crafts festival trip to Arkansas with my Mom and Aunt!!  I still need to pack so this with be short and sweet! ha 

I have a layout to share for the November Guest Designer Challenge at Back Porch Memories.  Here is the awesome Becky Fleck sketch I was required to use:

Here is the layout I came up with for this challenge:
I'm never happy with my photos lately.  I have my fingers crossed that I will be getting a new camera for Christmas! 
I love this photo of my daughter that I took yesterday on her 7th birthday.  That big happy grin just makes my heart smile.  She was super excited because we were getting ready to go to her birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's.  But honestly, she is always good at happily giving me a pretty smile when I take her photo.  She is definitely the child of a scrapbooker!!  LOL
Thanks so much for stopping and looking today!!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Happy Nat'l Card Making Day!

Happy World Card Making Day!!  How did you spend your day?  Did you make any cards???  I was happy to have my friend, Rochelle Spears, come over and scrap with me all day.  Our kids played and we scrapped....could it get any better than that?

Here is the layout I made.  I was inspired by several things.  The first was the color challenge at Color Me Scrappy.  The second was the gorgeous sketch from Stuck? Sketches. They are teaming up this month.


And third from the You're Sew Cute, You Keep Me In Stitches linky party at Paper Issues.  (this inspired the machine stitching on my layout)

And finally I was inspired by Rochelle's Tic Tac Toe Challenge at Through the Eye's of Rochelle Spears. (diagonal - 4+ patterned papers, Orange and Die Cut)

How about looking at a couple of cards I made??  The first one I made for Cheryl's Christmas Card Anything Goes Challenge at Sketches4all.  I'm entering it at We do Doobadoo in their Christmas challenge too.





Well, that seems like enough for now.  I hope you were able to get some scrapping done today.  I know I enjoyed Nat'l Card Making Day!  Until next time... happy scrapping!!
