When I saw the sketch over at sketchabilities I knew I was going to play with this one....All the papers used for this layout(besides the background) were scraps or Journal cards...even the die cuts(well silhouette cuts LOL) I kind of have a thing for nature pictures....these are from a stream near my best friends house in N.H. it was just too pretty to resist

 a couple stencils,gesso, molding paste and some of Lindy's Moon shine mist to help create the background...I just never know what to do with the beautiful journaling cards( received most in a RAK when I first started scrapbooking) I have because most times I do hidden journaling and I really wanted you all to see the pretty cards

I think my favorite things about this LO is I finally used one of my frog charms...

Did you ever feel like your loosing your mind? Well let me tell you its not a fun feeling, I seem to have lost a couple days this week lol ...I actually thought yesterday was Thursday which in turn threw everything off...all the things I had planned couldn't be done,people had to work,other appointments had to be kept...all around it was an off day...that carried over to this morning LOL I decide I wasn't gonna let it bother me any more and got scrappy  haha made me feel so much better!
So here is what I worked on this morning using the sketch from My Creative Sketches...

 I also worked on the Create to Live Challenge...the colors really threw me for a loop ...I have started at least three projects with this challenge in mind and they all just failed....but today as I was going through my stash of papers (looking for papers for the above layout) I came across this really cute had all the colors for the challenge in it....I got really excited and decided to make a cute card...

I swear the colors match but I just couldn't get a good picture,No matter how many I took *hangs head* just not my day! But I truly like how it turned out! I love the distressed look to the paper.
thank you for coming to take a peek!

My Flake

Good Morning.....So its Friday...which means the start of the bad I don't have anything planned...hmmm maybe I'll just scrap....Anyway I wanted to share my page I made using Skissdilla's sketch...

Of course I had to title it My flake since that's what I call her most times...she has to be the craziest dog I've ever had...sometimes I swear she has A.D.D. but I just love her to pieces!
 My Nova ...she loves to play in the snow!

 Thanks for coming to take a peek!

Fly Free and other projects

Good evening lovely scrappy people..I have a couple things I want to share and figured I would just put it all in one post LOL ...First is a layout I did for Keeping the best..they have a fabulous sketch that went live on the 11th....if your on my FB you've probably seen the pictures of the butterfly that was trapped on my porch...gosh it was so pretty...I scooped him up and set him free...but took pictures before he flew away...I decided to use those for this sketch...

 I mirrored the sketch......

my next layout I used a sketch from Pamela's World of Scraps......I make this page for my daughter album since technically its her cat lol

 now my last thing to share....Over on the Flying Unicorn forum they have a challenge called Sweet....You can create any type of candy holder you so desire BUT the rule is you can not alter a box or a dish or a glass ... the holder must be made using 100% paper

so here is what I made....

You hold my heart

I spent the morning playing around with all my scrappy goodies...I pulled out my stencils paints,inks some pretty papers and a couple stamps..I just played around and created my own background...I decided to use the sketch from 13Arts along with their challenge criteria which was to use at least two mediums and 2 stamps...I used gesso,paint and inks I also used my graphic 45 stamps...I am also entering in the Inkido challenge their criteria was to use layers and a punch/die cut border....I turned the sketch....

thank you so much for coming to take a peek.....

Just being me-LGS reveal

Happy Monday fellow you all know by now Monday means a new sketch over at Lets Get Sketchy...and I have to tell you the Design Team has out done themselves this is my take on this weeks sketch.

 as you can see I did turn it on its side...I found some old Polaroids of my Sammi so I based the colors on her outfit,she was obsessed with 101 dalmatians at the time and wore that darn shirt all the time! I did mostly everything with my silhouette,like the drawing of the flower/vine,cutting the shapes

 I just adore how this one turned out!
I hope you'll head on over to Lets Get Sketchy and play along! Thanks for stopping by!

Tattoos of memories

as soon as I saw the new song  over at Scrap & Music I knew just what pictures I wanted to use....I'm not so sure about the sketch...the Song is by Green Day- Time of your life...I combined their challenge with the challenge over at Scrap Africa which was to use washi tape and twine...

I chose to use pictures of our tattoos, well one of ours right now..see we( me ,my best friend and my oldest daughter) all went and got tattoos this time last year in memory of my youngest daughter...she was obsessed with the character Gir so that's what me and Ginny decided to get with her name...Sammi just got her sisters name I used the pictures we took of Ginny's tattoo and I will add them to Stephanie's memorial album.

Like I said I wasn't sure about the sketch but I kept it pretty simple and really like how it turned out!

Thank you for taking the time to come check out my page!
