be happy


Hey everyone. I'm back with this month's sketch/word challenge at Scrap Our Stash. I'm absolutely loving the word part of these challenges as it makes me use up parts of my stash that I have forgotten about. I used Kaiser Craft's beautiful 'Wildflower' line for this layout. The flair button was from Cuts2Luv. The photo is of my niece. Our little Mouse is growing up way too fast!!! I used the following for the word part of the challenge:

T : thread
H : half pearls
A : amethyst coloured cardstock
N : Nestabilities ( hexagons )
K : Kaiser Craft
S : Seedless Preserves distress ink


Make sure to check out the SOS blog for lots of inspiration. Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.

Dad & Me


Hey everyone. Got a layout for you based on Cuts2Luv's and Scrap the Boys' November challenges. Scrap the Boys is a new challenge site for me. I haven't scrapped alot of masculine layouts in the past, but now that I have an adorable little grandson, that's going to change!! Lots of texture on this page with corrugated cardboard, staples, wood veneer stars, stitching, puffy stickers and filmstrips. For the Cuts2Luv challenge I followed the sketch and used the pattern stripes. The Scrap the Boys challenge was to follow a moodboard of green, black, orange and kraft. The first thing I thought of when I saw the moodboard, was the 'Good Fellows' collection of Fancy Pants which fit perfectly. Below are some close ups and the challenges. Thanks for stopping by.

Grateful, Thankful, Blessed


Hey everyone. Here's my take on Scrap Our Stash's November tic tac toe challenge. The photos are of my daughter and grandson, at our place on a beautiful fall day. Simple Stories' 'Vintage Blessings' line matched the photos perfectly. For the challenge I used the following: Echo Park, fall theme, the color brown (the paper matting the photos was from Echo Park). Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.

Everyday Moments


Hey everyone. I bought my first Hip Kit Club kit. WOW!!! Lots of goodies in these kits. This was the September kit, which was full of Paige Evans' 'Turn the Page' collection from Pink Paislee.  I used Vicki Boutin's art crayons to create the background, along with some distress ink spray and color shine. I decided to play along with the weekly sketch on the Hip Kit Club Facebook member forum. This layout was based on the October 6-12th sketch. Thanks for stopping by.

Cutest Little Pumpkin


Hey everyone. I have a layout to share based on challenges at Cuts2Luv and The Studio Challenges. At Cuts2Luv, the 2 parts of the October mood board that I used were pattern:wood and embellishment:leaves. I used one of their gold leaf flair buttons as well.  At The Studio Challenges, there was a fall color pallette to draw inspiration from. I used Echo Park Paper's 'A Perfect Autumn' collection for this page of my cutest little pumpkin. The leaves were cut using dies from Prima. Below are some close ups and the challenges. Thanks for stopping by.

You Make My Heart Sing


Hey everyone. I have a layout for you based on Stuck?!Sketches October 15th sketch. I apologize for the darkness of the photos. I finished up the page at a crop and took the photos in my hotel room. I used Cocoa Vanilla's beautiful 'Wild at Heart' collection for this layout of my mom and grandson. Below are some close ups and the sketch. Make sure to check out the SS Blog as there is always a ton of inspiration to be found there. Thanks for stopping by.

A Day Spent Together



Hey everyone. Here's a layout based on Scrap Our Stash's October tic tac toe challenge.  I used left overs from an older Clique Kit I had laying around.  A true stash challenge. The papers were from Maggie Holmes' Gather collection. For the challenge I used the column on the left: the color orange, doily and mini alphas. Love how these challenges make me dig into my stash. Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.
