Top 10 of 2012

A lot of my fellow scrappers are doing their top 10 for 2012.  I thought this was such a great idea and thought I'd play along.  Here are my top 10 favorite pages I completed in 2012.  I made a total of 198 pages.  Not as many as I would have liked but that's life :)  In no particular order.

January Kits are Up!!

If you haven't seen last month Tammi at My Scraps and More started selling kits.  She truly has a knack for putting kits together.  They are also low cost and have no commitment. She just put the new January kits up.

"Baby It's Cold Outside"

"You are my.....happy"

I got to play with the "You are my...happy kit" but you will have to wait a little longer to see what I created.  Now just for visiting my blog you can get 20% of these kits by using the code TRACY20.  Now this code will also work for the December kits as well.  There are still a few left.  Here are the pages I created with the "Christmas Classic" kit.

I used a sketch from sketch-n-scrap for this page.  I hope you will come join in on the fun.

So Sweet Together

Autumn was thrilled that Aunt Tammy came by to see her dance class.  It just so happened to fall on the same day they were having their Halloween party and got to dance in their Halloween costume.  I used a sketch from Sketch N Scrap.

You Rock

Well, I have gone back to work.  It has been a big adjustment after being a SAHM for 10 years.  I enjoy my job but it has been interesting trying to juggle all the sports practices, homework, dinner, and everything else I used to have all day to do.  Sadly scrapping is suffering the most.  I have very much enjoyed this rainy weekend we have, which has given me lot's of time to indulge in scrapping again.  I created this page using a sketch from the basic grey blog, and their new Clippings collection.

Scrap Friendzy Blog Hike

Hello and welcome to Stop #9 on your hike.  I hope you have enjoyed all the scenery along the way. For those of you that are planning to attend Camp-Friendzy (beginning Monday June 11th) and would like to earn your Blog Hike Badge, you will need to have commented on and followed every blog stop along the way! This is your last stop before heading over to Scrap Friendzy and letting us know in the "Badge Me Baby!" section of the forum.  We will then add your badge to your signature.

If you've popped onto this blog and you have no clue what Camp-Friendzy is or what the badges are, then check out the Camp-Friendzy Info section of our forum! We'd love to have you join the fun!!

I just love camp!  I only had a chance to go to one camp growing up when I was in 5th grade and the whole 5th grade went to a two day camp.  We got to experience so many wonderful things.  I thought I would create a LO showcasing some of my favorite things about camp.
First off there is the lake, one of my favorite places to be.  Not only did I include photos of a lake but I also used water to distress the edges of my page.  Then there are the stars.  It is so much fun being out in the dark with all the stars up above.  You will also see a bit of nature thrown in with my line of pine needles.  Yes those are real pine needles from my yard sealed with glossy accents along the bottom of the striped paper.  Last but certainly not least are friends.  Getting to spend time at camp with old and new friends is what makes it so much fun.  To represent friendship I went with a very old camp craft called friendship bracelets.  I made two mini friendship bracelets and included them in the top corner of the LO.

I hope you have enjoyed my camp inspiration and just in case you have gotten lost along the way, here is a map of all the Blog Hike stops:

                                   Stop #1: SCRAP-FRIENDZY BLOG

Graduating Divas

Mothers day out is officially over for Autumn and she will be off to Kindergarten next year, so hard to believe!  I used a sketch from Creative Scrappers for this page and Scrap Fit has a challenge to use stickers which I have quite a few of on here.  I also created this page for Memorable Seasons last Scrapper Standing contest.  I made it to round 2.

Saturday, June 2, 2012


Here is Austin in his 2nd year of T-ball (again I'm doing past years as this was 2011).  At least I'm getting closer to this year.  I used another sketch from Creative Scrappers.

Sabine Cardinals

One of these years I'll get caught up on all the posed photos I have.  This is actually a team from 2 years ago.  I used a sketch from Creative Scrappers for this page.

Happy Birthday Blog Hop

It's My Scraps and More 1st birthday and we are so happy to have you joining us for our Birthday Party Blog Hop. If you have just started here you will want to go back to the beginning and start at the My Scraps and More Blog. The hop runs til midnight EST Tuesday April 17.

Here is the order of the hop:

                   Tracy - you are here

Now lets party scrappy style. Normally the guests bring presents to the party but we want to share the fun by doing things a bit backwards and providing gifts for you. For a chance at the big gift we have provided a sketch for you to work with. You will also need to check out all the design team blogs and leave them some love as each of them has a party favor for you to collect. Use the sketch and 3 of the party favors on a LO for a chance to win the birthday gift. Share your creation with us by linking your LO up to the blog hop post at the My Scraps and More blog. Our talented design team member Lisa has created this wonderful sketch for you to work with.

Here is the big gift you could win. The new Authentique Celebrate collection.

Now make sure as you visit each of the design team blogs you read carefully because there may be some more birthday presents to win along the way.  Here is what I created using Lisa's wonderful sketch.  Since I'm way behind on birthday pictures I thought this would be a great time to tackle some of them.  This is my sweet girl Autumn last year at her 4th birthday party at Chuck E Cheese.

My party favor for you to use is some sugar.  You know birthday parties are always full of lot's of sugary treats so show me some glitter to represent all that sugar.

I'm also giving away a birthday present to one lucky person.  All you have to do is become a follower on my blog if you are not already and leave a comment below.  I will chose a random poster at the end of the blog hop to win this.

This is your last stop on the hop.  I hope you have enjoyed all of the wonderful inspiration provided by our design team.  Now don't forget to choose 3 of the party favors and create a LO from Lisa's sketch.  It does not have to be birthday themed.  Then upload it to the My Scraps and More blog hop post by midnight EST Tuesday April 17th to be eligible for the big birthday present.

Happy Scrapping!!!!!

1st day of school

Yes I'm a little behind. We are now two months from the end of school and I'm just getting to the first day.  But I have to say it is worth it to be able to use Echo Parks newest collection Note To Self for it.  The colors coordinated very well with what both the boys were wearing.  I created this page for Tabitha's challenge at Colorful Creations to use pop tabs on a page and I used a sketch from Scrapping Everyday Miracles.

My Little Pumpkin

My second challenge this month at My Scraps and More was to take 2 LO's and lift items from both.  I chose 2 DT LO's from Scrap Fit that were created from a sketch.  Here is my take on it.

Day at the zoo

Are you having a good scrappy month.  I'm starting off better than I did in February so that is good.  If you need a little inspiration come join us at My Scraps and More for our "Let's Lift It" challenges.  That's right a whole month of lifts.  I created this page for one of the challenges, a lift of a talented member Audrey.  So come check out the fabulous inspiration to be lifted.

I also created this LO for the color challenge at Scrap Whsipers to use these 3 colors on a LO.

Dr. Seuss!!!

I hope you all will come join us this month at Scrap Friendzy as we celebrate a month of Dr. Seuss.  All month long we will have challenges based off of some of our favorite books.

My first challenge went up today based off of Austin's favortie book Green Eggs and Ham.   Come check us out to find out all the details.  Here is the LO I created for my challenge.

It's not the destination....

Don't be scared when a line of paper seems too themed.  This is the Simple Stories Destination line which is mostly related to travel.  But I found that the papers and quotes worked great for this picture of my son and husband about to take off on the bobsled ride at Six Flags.  Lines of paper can be very versatile.  I used a sketch from StuckOnUSketches for this page.

Saturday, February 25, 2012


I don't scrap enough pictures of my mom.  She is such an important part of my kids life and they love her so much.  I need to try to get hr in more photos.  I created this LO for the Scrap Fit challenge to use XO on a LO.

School Time

It is so hard to believe Austin is already in first grade and is actually getting close to being out of it.  I was reading him the lines from the Star Wars movie when they were speaking an alien language and he said "I can read it".  They grow up too fast!  I used a sketch from Scrap Whispers for this layout.

Saturday, February 18, 2012

This month Tammi at My Scraps and More sent me the Clementine papers from Cosmo Cricket.  I found these papers very versatile.  I was able to use them for both boy and girl pages, as well as Valentines Day and just some wonderful spring days.
