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.
