a day lost

Oh my goodness I have lost a day somewhere....oops totally missed my normal Monday post! So we will pretend today is Monday hehe...which means a new sketch over at lets get sketchy...

Its still funny to look at these pictures...My Sam was a real girly girl when she was younger..(.up until teen years) so to see her trying to fish was one of the funniest things I have every seen and heaven forbid something catch on her line haha...I don't think she ever went again after this trip!

I had some fun with my Silhouette portrait and cut out some fishy shapes

and used the extras here.....

Make sure you head on over to Lets Get sketchy and play along with us!

This is awesome

I went a bit bright with this layout but had a ton of fun making it! I finally used up some of my prima pastel stuff that I just had no clue what to do with! I make this layout using the sketch from Skissedilla for this months challenge!

I also wanted to share something a bit different...over at the Flying Unicorn forum they have a challenge this month for paper dresses and I really wanted to give it a shot..this is what I came up with...

Cute Birthday card

I made this card for the challenge over at That's just so cute...they are celebrating their four blog birthday!

A time of wonder

I thought I would give the sketch over at My creative was a rough one because it was a double pager....I really love how it turned out too bad I can't get a good picture! I have retaken it like 6 times LOL

I swear all the paper matches and that would paper is a rusty burgundy color not the pinkish purple color that it looks on here!!! I have no clue why it looks like that...anyway it looks good in real life so I guess thats all that counts!

I love this picture..its from the leaves on the just looks so cool!

Evening my scrappy friends..I just wanted to share a layout I made with the Keeping the best sketch..this one was a bit rough for me because I don't really like the starburt effect on my layouts but I managed to make it work

 I tried to cut down all the pink with the white ribbon lol it wasn't very effective but I do love the end result!
Oh and I flipped the sketch!

I used these beautiful pictures my best friend sent me from her new home in New Hampshire...I so miss the fall colors in New England :( we just don't get those pretty reds and oranges....we go from green to yellow to brown...not my idea of pretty LOL if I am lucky I will be able to see the beautiful fall colors with my own two eyes...we have planned a trip to Maine,we're leaving Oct 24th so I should be able to catch some of it! Must remember to bring my camera!

You are unforgettable

Good afternoon scrappy friends I have two things I want to share....first is a layout I made using the sketch from C'est Magnifique , I tried to use the colors in the photo..haha they were all so vivid and fall like!
this picture was taken Sept was a rough day all around but this picture tell me a you it might look like a hot mess but to those who know it shows just how much a short life meant to so many show just how many lives my daughter touched and just how much her friends miss her! See they took it upon themselves to kind of keep a memorial,they leave cards and poems...they even started an annual Anti Bully walk in honor of my touches my heart! last year we did a walk and a balloon release on her birthday since she passed away  just shy of her 14th birthday...On Sept 28 1 full year has passed and they decided to have the walk on that day...(but we will still have the balloon release on her birthday in Nov.) I was truly touched when her friends stood and spoke of their memories and how much they missed her!

My second project is a card I made for Frosted Designs challenge -kraft paper, flair and chipboard on your project
