Scrappiest Blog

I created the layout below based on this sketch from the Scrappiest Blogsketch 109

I pulled out some older Basic Grey papers to complete the Spa day layout. I also used some BG journaling stickers, the beautiful tag and a brad.

Sketch 112

I had lots of fun playing with this sketch. I pulled out some October Afternoon and started playing. I actually stamped on my layout too, shocking I know since I rarely pull out my stamps. I got this wonderful bubble wrap stamp a while ago and I'm thrilled I actually got it "dirty" and stamped with it.

I love when my DS gets a haircut, I always tell him he is sooooo handsome after he gets a new haircut.

xoxo March Challenge & Sassy Lil Sketches

The March Challenge over at xoxo was posted a few days late this month so you have til April 5th to get to scraplifting one of the designer layouts and get it posted over there.

The layout I made for this month features Crate Paper's Restoration line. I just love this line its so versatile.

Here are a couple of closeup detail shots of the layout too!
I've had this newspaper flower for ages!!! I sprayed it with some apricot chalkboard glimmer mist to add a bit of color to the flower. I also included a touch of denim. I liked the touch of stitching on the denim so I just roughly cut a piece from one of DD's old jeans.

Sassy Lil Sketches

I played with the March 7th sketch and used an older Making Memories line called Flutter, its a great spring line that worked with the photo of my Daughter and her creation for a girl themed skateboard. So took some of my scrapbooking flowers and traced them to create her design and then colored them all in with some of my pens/markers.

Back Porch Memories
Had another great sketch this month. I remember the day I took this photo sitting on the couch with my DS, just trying to take a pic while holding the camera myself. I was just trying to get us in the picture, but I have always liked how this picture came out.

I used Sassafras Indie Girl line for this one, love the banner stickers that Sass has now!!

Scrappiest Blog, Spring Cleaning Challenge

The Scrappiest blog has a FAB new sketch up Sketch 110.

I created a layout with it the other day. This layout features my DD eating Ice Cream so I went with an older collection from Bo Bunny Popsicle. How perfect is that, LOL!

Scrapdango is having a Spring Cleaning Event this month. When you use up old stash - at least 6 months old you get points and at the end of the month someone will win a prize. So far I have been a good job of pulling out some old kits from Scrapdango to create some page. The first challenge was to create a layout about a spring celebration and we got an extra 50 points. You get lots of points for flowers in the picture, flowers on the layout, brads on the layout and flowers in the title. SO I went a little crazy on this layout and racked up lots and lots of points. Plus I scrapped some photos that I have been wanting and wondering how I was going to scrap them.

Little Yellow Bicycle
I got some of the New Twig papers and I was happy when I saw Little Yellow Bicycle doing a sketch contest with Twig. So I used these photos of my DS riding a two wheeler for the first time!!
