Sketches in Thyme April Kick Off Week

I'm so happy to finally be making projects for Sketches in Thyme!!  Each week there will be a new sketch to get your creative juices going and you only have to create one project to qualify to win a prize.  But with that much inspiration you will want to do all 4!

We are on Day 6 of our Kick Off Week!  The fantastic challenge inspiration is Sketch #143 by our Senior Sketch Designer , Bev Code.  It is gorgeous, right?!   Looks like you will need to get out your needle and thread!  (or a nice pen for faux stitching! lol)


Here is my take on this fab sketch!

When this photo was taken at school, my daughter's kindergarten teacher also had her write about her first day and I have that paper hidden behind her photo.

The prize this month is......

Mom's Love

Happy Monday everyone!!

Today I have a layout that I made for a Sketch plus Gold - Scrap Our Stash Challenge.  Everyone knows that gold is HOT right now so that was easy to add and I LOVE the sketch from Karan Gerber!!

Have a look and see what I mean...

Here is my take on the challenge:

I used a fun photo of my husband and his mother.  I splattered gold and pink Color Shine on the white base paper.  I'm enthralled with sequins lately so I had to add some of them too.  I used a bit of black to ground everything.  I'm happy with how it turned out.  What do you think??

I'm working on another layout right now so expect to see more soon!!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Scrappy Friends

Hi there!!  I'm back again today to share a layout that I made for the March Scrappy Friends Challenges.  I combined all three challenges on one layout.  Rochelle's Tic Tac Toe challenge, Brenda's Sketch challenge and Kelly's color challenge.  For Rochelle's Tic Tac Toe challenge I used stitching, the color green and stars.

I love to make cards with the left over bits after i make a layout so that is what I did.  Here is the crazy congratulations card I made.

I think I have one more in me today so think about stopping back by later today!! ha  Until next time...happy scrapping!


This Rocks!

Hello again!  I'm back today with another post to share another layout!!  I've used some photos from my daughter's Dance Team competition.  I'm excited to say that they took 1st place!!  I'm totally proud of course!! ha

I was inspired by the gorgeous sketch made by my buddy, Rochelle Spears for a challenge at Sketches in Thyme.  I've combined it with a mood board challenge at A Cherry on Top.  I was inspired by the colors and circles on the board.  The mood board challenge also required me to use sequins which is definitely NOT a problem since I'm OBSESSED with SEQUINS!!  lol

This layout has been so hard to photograph!  It just doesn't want to look pretty in a photo.  This is the best photo I could take.   I'm on a roll today so be sure and check back again in a bit for another layout!!  Until next time...happy scrapping!


Twice the Fun!

Hello all!!

Let's Scrap has teamed up with Feeling Sketchy this month for a fun two part challenge.  Let's Scrap's part of the challenge was to make something using some or all of a yummy double page layout sketch by Michelle Van Wick.  And Feeling Sketchy has a fun card sketch.  So I have done both of them.

I made a single page layout and I flipped the sketch around a bit:

Here is the card I made:

Be sure to stop back by today because I am going to be uploading more projects that I have made.  Thanks for stopping and looking!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

Scrap Society Crop

Hi everyone!

I recently went to a fun Scrap Society - Alice In Wonderland themed crop with my bestie, Denise.  I actually got a lot of scrapping done which is unusual for me since I'm a piddler.  I just piddle around until I finally get started scrapping!  lol

I actually scrapped a WHOLE calender - all twelve months!  (I haven't photographed it yet)  And I made a few cards.  Here are a couple to show you.

I used a paper pad and embellies that I won while I was there.

Here is a layout I made.

I started this layout at the crop but just finished it here at home.  I used a bunch of fun Prima embellishments that I got in one of their Special Delivery boxes.  I have to force myself not to hoard them because they are so beautiful!!! 

I think that is all to share today....but you never  Thanks for stopping and looking today.  Until next time...happy scrapping!
