This layout was inspired by Andrea over a Design Dollies.  I'm getting closer to my goal.

Icing Please

This layout was inspired by Karen W. at Design Dollies.  One more Halloween layout down!


My stack of Halloween photos is way too large for my liking.  Normally I have worked my way through them but I am finding them very uninspiring.  So I've set my self a goal to finish as many of them as possible by the end of the week.  I'm leaving all my fall and Halloween paper and embellishments on my desk and not touching another stack of photos until they are done.  I used Karen B's layout from Design Dollies as inspiration for this LO.  Stay tuned more to come.

Seaside Cottage Kit

Scrap Friendzy's June kit is on sale now.  It has the most beautiful relaxing colors and the most fabulous embellishments.  It truly makes me wish I was sitting by the seaside relaxing in the sand and sun!

Paper Bows

I love finding everyday things that I can use my scrappy supplies for.  It makes me feel a little less guilty about the amount of money I spend on them.  Scrap Whispers posted a tutorial for how to make the cutest bows to use on all your presents.  Forget those expensive ones from the store, these let you dig into your stash and the color possibilities are endless.

With Jacob's 10th birthday approaching in two weeks it feels really good to finish up the last of his birthday pictures from last year.  It was a fun, hot day at the zoo last year and snow cones was a perfect way to end the day.  I used a Sketchy Thursday sketch.

Scrap Whispers NSD

Well thankfully Scrap Whispers gave us a little more time to complete their challenges.  They were all related around food which was a bit hard for me since I print all my pictures out at once and had very few pictures that had anything to do with food.  I probably never would have focused on the food in these layouts if not for the challenges but I'm happy with the direction they took.

This challenge was to do a layout highlighting chocolate and I found these photos of Jacob with his hot chocolate on the top of Pikes Peak.  There was a windchill of -9 when we were up there.  Picture taking was near impossible.
This challenge was to use the title "good enough to eat" and it had to be food related.  I chose to add the word "NOT" to the title to fit these photos I had of Jacob doing a competition at camp to copy a figure made out of Vienna sausages.  His dog won and he got his very own can of Vienna sausages, Yuck!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day.  I've been having so much fun and getting lot's of creating done.  I did this layout for a challenge over at Scrap Whispers.  The challenge was to use 5 patterned paper, 4 flowers, 3 embellishments, a two word title, and stitching.  I also used a sketch from the scrappiest!

Winter Fun

Sketchy Thursday is one of my favorite sketch sites.  It led me over to another site and fun blog, Scrapbook Circle.  I created this layout for their sketch challenge over there.  We had a crazy winter this year with multiple times for the kids to go sledding.  Before last year we had never had enough snow for the kids to even attempt it, so to get it again was nothing short of a miracle.

Sweet Peach Crop Shop

It has been a very lucky week for me and I wanted to share my good news.  First I found out I won the monthly challenge over at Scrap Fit and won a Sweet Peach kit.  Then I got the news that I won the big prize over at Sweet Peach Crop Shop for their Anniversary celebration, a 3 month subscription to their kit club.  I can't wait to start playing with their kits!

The Climb

The newest challenge over at Sweet Peach Crop Shop is to use a song title for your layout.  I always find so much inspiration from songs and when I looked at these pictures this Miley Cyrus song immediately jumped into my head.  I used a sketch from Stuck sketches.
