Birthday Boy!

A quick post here with the layout I completed for Scrapbookin' Adventures facebook challenge. The current challenge is  a great 2 page layout. I love getting a stack of photos taken care of in one go! And I just happened to have these photos sitting out waiting to be used!

The papers are an older MME line called Lime Twist 'Fly a Kite.' I love going through my stash and finding older collections that I still love! I also added some thickers and some enamel dots from various manufacturers.

A Birthday Mini

Well, I hope this post was worth the wait! I haven't had a chance to do any new layouts. Too many busy days and weekends! But I had to get this mini album done for my oldest daughter's birthday. She turns 10 this weekend, which is a pretty big deal (when you are the one turning ten). I had seen someone else do this same idea for their daughter's 10th birthday and I knew I had to do it too!

I used a lot of different products but I didn't keep track, so if there is anything you want to know about, just ask!. The papers are all MME 'Unforgettable' (from the Collectable collection).

I even made an envelope to store it in. I think this is also going to serve as her birthday card, cause I am out of time to make her one now!

Now back to my 2014 goal of more layouts than 2013!!!

Canadian Scrapbooker February Sketch

I do believe that this the first (or maybe second?) time I have joined in on the Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine's monthly sketch challenge. And I have to confess, it was not the sketch that attracted me. Honestly, it's not really my 'style.' BUT, the first layout I saw with it was just so fantastic that I had to give it a try. And... I LOVE my layout! Love it!

This is the sketch:
Feb 2014 Sketch
The circle background really wasn't doing anything for me until I saw this amazing layout by Sue Sykes.

And here is what I came up with:

Love it!

Pebbles: lil' buddy papers
Thickers: Amy Tangerine 'cut out'; Sunrise
Studio Calico: cork arrows
Um Wow Studio: chipboard stars and star confetti

Splish Splash

No scrapping for me last week. It was one of those crazy, won't ever end kinda weeks. But I am back at it again this week.

This layout was done the for Scrapbookin' Adventures facebook challenge. After a short break they are back at it again. And am I so happy cause I need that motivation! Challenge #1 was to use embossed paper. I ran the white strip of paper through a polka dot embossing folder a few times. I love how it looks as a background for the photos.

Pebbles - Lil' Buddy papers
American Crafts - white cardstock, orange brads
Studio Calico - grey alphas; cork stickers (arrows & circles)
Elle's Studio - day to day tidbits (circle)
