Joy Ride

This weekend I actually scrapped this picture twice.  This is my grandson Jacob, riding his cousin Abby (my granddaughter) to church one Sunday morning 4 years ago on his bike.  How sweet was that?? I just had to document that moment for both of them in their scrapbooks.  Hence the reason for scrapping this picture.  If you look at the blog post I did a little earlier today you will see the girlie page with this picture that I did for Abby's scrapbook.  This page is more masculine and it is for Jacob's book.  I used older stash from My Mind's Eye (I had the drawer open with all my MME stash this weekend and made three pages with some of the awesome papers I have been hoarding.)  I love shopping my stash....don't you?  I also used this inspiring sketch from Sketches in Thyme and I am entering it into their sketch challenge.  It closes at midnight tonight and I am just getting this page entered in the nick of time.

Well, that is about it for today.  I hope your Monday is going well.


Let's Ride

I was a busy scrapper this weekend.  My room was renovated this month and out of commission for nearly 3 weeks so I really had the urge to create some pages this past rainy weekend.  I used this picture twice for two different pages that I did this weekend because it is a picture of my granddaughter and her cousin my oldest grandson Jacob.  I wanted to scrap this wonderful picture for both of their scrapbooks. This page above is for Abby's book.  I used some older My Mind's Eye papers and embellies and really love how it turned out.  The awesome sketch is from My Scraps and More:

I am entering their sketch challenge with this page and today is the deadline so I am just slipping this in under the wire.  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Cool Dudes

Having my creative space all freshly painted, new flooring, rearranged and reorganized has breathed new life into my desire to scrap.  It was a great deal of work to totally empty the room and my husband pretty much gave up 3 of his weekends but I am soooo happy we did it and an thrilled with the final result.  There is one more thing Dave wants to me a stand up work table next weekend and when that is done I will share pictures here on my blog.  

Here is the first of 3 layouts I completed today.  I cannot remember EVER completing 3 pages in one day.  I used My Mind's Eye Boy Crazy Papers and embellishments with Bella Blvd alphas.  Oh there is just a little Jillibean Soup thrown in as well.  I have such great stuff in my stash that I used all older stash today on all three projects.  The sketch is from Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits:

There is still a short time for you to enter their sketch challenges.  Just upload HERE before midnight tomorrow night.

Thanks for stopping by...hope your weekend was as good as mine.


Fun in the Sunshine

We are having a very rainy weekend here in the Florida as the remnants of Tropical Storm Ericka passes by.  It is the perfect time to do some crafting in my newly renovated craft space.  I used this sketch from Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits:

Laura Whitaker creates the BEST sketches for boy pages. I am glad I had the time to work with this one.  In fact this morning I was able to use the other sketch for Boys Rule so I will be sharing that shortly.

Thanks for stopping by.

Back to School -- Second Grade

I am almost completely moved back into my newly renovated creative place and I absolutely love creating in there. It is so clean and pretty and inspiring.  Last night after a long week of working I felt like scrapping a brand new picture of my granddaughter Abby on her first day of second grade this past week.

I used this Sketchy Friday sketch from Scrap Much?

I am entering it in their sketch challenge.

I am also entering this page in Clique Kits August Anything Goes challenge
and linking up to the current issue of Paper Issues...You Rule the School

Thanks for stopping by....I think I hear my creative place calling my name again so maybe I will have another project to share later today.


Snappy Birthday

I recently bought a stamp set by Newton's Nook that I could not wait to use.  My family is definitely heavy on the male population.  Therefore, I make a number of masculine cards.  These stamps are a perfect fit for me especially living on the east coast of Florida where sharks are abundant.

I found this card  during the Newton Nook's  reveal week (aptly named "Shark Week" and coinciding with Shark Week last July on cable tv)  

I scraplifted my card from Lydia's design and wanted to give her the credit for inspiring me.  Isn't her card lovely?  And I LOVE her staging for the photo also.

  I used this sketch from My Favorite Things:

And I am entering it into their sketch challenge #243.  You can get all the details HERE

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Anything Goes challenge.

Well, I have a very busy have yourself a wonderful weekend and thank you for taking time out of your weekend to stop in here and check out my blog.
