How about another post today?  I have made a layout for the Scrap our Stash challenge #26.  Create a layout and include an item form your stash for each letter of the word E-M-B-O-S-S.  

I used E-Enamel dots, M-Metal, B-Baby and Black, O-Overlay, S-Splatters, and S-Sequins.

Look at that sweet baby girl!!  How could I not scrap this photo!!?  (smile)

I'm off to scrap some more....until next time...happy scrapping!


Scrappy Friends - May


Happy Tuesday!  I'm sitting here in my scrap room this morning with my friend, Rochelle.  She is already making a layout and after I get this post up I am going to get busy making one too!  I just love our weekly scrap dates!

Here is a layout I made for the Scrappy Friends challenges.  There are three challenges and if you combine all three you get your name in the hat for the grand prize.

Here is my layout:

I used Brenda's sketch:

 Rochelle's Tic Tac Toe board:

I did Tac vertically - scallop punch, flower and doily.

and Kelly's Color Inspiration board:

As you can see I'm obsessing over all the baby photos!  You will be seeing more and more of Myla in the near future.  ;-)

Thanks for stopping and looking today!  Until next time...happy scrapping!

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......


All you have to do to be eligible to win is follow the Sketches in Thyme blog and play along!  We will have one random winner chosen by random.org and Top 3 for each month!

There will be a separate link for each week.  April week 1 link is posted to the right on the top of the sidebar at Sketches in Thyme.  You will have until April 30th to enter a link fore this challenge!

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!

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.
