Happy Monday! A quick post before heading off to the park with the kids! The weather is beautiful, the air is crisp and fresh! It has been a long, sticky, humid summer! Which is why I love FALL! So today's layout is based on the sketch by Once Upon A Sketch and the focus is season. 

The challenge on the BoBunny blog is white spaces. Which is very hard for me to do! So using the fall harvest collection (still one of my favorites) I created this page of my middle son Casey.

For my back layers I used BoBunny Market place papers. Then layered my picture with leaves created with my Close to my Heart cricut cartridge again with Harvest papers. I did some distressing and inking to give the crisp look.

In keeping with the journaling aspect of Once Upon A Sketch I created a little card on the top left hand corner that I am going to print and insert. (Holiday weekend I am out of ink for my printer and everything is closed!... argh) I can't tell you were the memories sticker comes from I'm still trying to go through my stash and found this cute sticker but don't know who's... oops sorry! But hope you are enjoying a fabulous Monday!Off to play outside with the kids!

More Kaiser ... Please

Well I think everyone knows I am addicted to sketches! I love love love them! and more than sketches I love my paper! So I was thrilled when I got my hands on every line of Kaisercraft! And although pink and I don't see eye to eye on a lot of things I love how the tigerlilly collection catches the eye! and yes there is pink! So using the August sketch from the Scrapbook Kits with a Difference blog. Came up with the below.

I still can't believe how much I love this paper. I used some of my Kaisercraft stamps, and my favorite butterfly MS punch. 

With the left overs I made some Thank you cards. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great long weekend! I am off to scrap again!

Yummy Papers

A few weeks ago I went to craft with some very talented ladies! The Diva's of SGD! and well the Kaiser Kraft paper looked so yummy I couldn't help by almost every collection! And decided to try my hand at the Saturday Sketch based on the below. 

and here is what I did! 

I fell in love with this line Sweet Nothings! I did lots of fussy cutting although you might not see it from this shot. I used my Creative Memories Cricut cartridge to make the extra add ons and then my favorite MS punch, lots of inking too! 

Thanks for looking!

10 pictures!!!

I am normally a one picture kinda girl, for a layout and typically I don't do so well with double layouts.  Well not today! MME has a challenge to use 10 pictures in a layout! And after seeing Creative Scrappers Sketch 219 decided to give it a go! 

And this is what I came up with! 

I mixed On the Bright Side and Quite Contrary paper line to come up with this page. I love the colors! and actually managed to make this whole page only using MME! This is of my middle son Casey that is always smiling or giggling. Sheila at SGD right now is having a great paper sale! Take a look! I don't normally like cutting out my pictures or cutting them down. But I dropped my pictures off to be printed and never paid attention to how they would be formatted and so I ended up with a lot of different sizes and cut off heads. So  I am trying to use those up so I am just not throwing them away. Thanks for stopping by!

Where did it go???

Well it has been more than a few weeks that I have been missing. With summer, job, kids, activities and a missing mojo I've ignored my little blog. There are just not enough hours in the day. 

But last week I spend some time with some fabulous ladies at SGD and looks like I've found myself this week. 

So I am trying my hand at Creative Scrappers Sketch 218.

and this is my take on the sketch. 

Using Welcome Home Paper and some American Craft cardstock I did lots of layering and some distressing. I also got a new stamp set from SGD and love playing with them. I love using the scribbles! I think I bought ten packs of these puppies and never wanted to use them because I love them so much! But it is now time. 

This page is about the first month we had Sophie home with us. The last few months of pregnancy were long and we told ourselves that we would celebrate the whole month when she finally arrived! Well here she is!
