Good afternoon my crafty friends, I just wanted to share my latest layout I  did using the sketch from Once Upon A Sketch using their Journaling theme "The women/girls etc in our lives..." and sketch...

I decided on a old picture of my two beautiful daughters...even though there was 6 years between then they we at thick as thieves! I found the picture stashed away in my Stephanie's belongings, she just adored her older sister and even though the picture is scratched and a bit damaged I still wanted to scrap it!

I wanted that layout to portray both their was bubbly and a bit girly and the other was the Tomboy and a bit adventurous bubbles and rocks and butterflies seemed to work.... the pictures just don't do this justice at all (I've retaken them three times LOL )

my journaling can be found behind the picture...both tags pull out.....

as you can see lots of paint,some stamping and a couple rubons

 you can see some of the damage to the picture here...Gosh only knows what she got on it....its a bit sticky and has scratches makes and is a lil bent...lets just say its well loved!

thank you so much for coming to check out my latest project!

Autumn in the air

WoW its been awhile since I've done a I thought I would tackle a couple challenge in one swoop...I hope no body minds...I check out the rules and none seemed against it!
So I used the sketch from C'est Magnifique kits....and combined the criteria from Southern girls challenge which "was words on your project" I figured the title and the background paper cover that pretty good and the criteria fro Scrap Africa which is "list it" I did list the top 12 thing I miss about living in Maine (it can be found in the envelop on my layout)

I decided on a fall theme because that was one of the things on my list...I miss the fall colors in Maine here we don't have those bright vivid colors...I used some beautiful papers from Maja Design I had gotten from
C'est Magnifique kits.

 the picture were sent by my best friend she knows how much I miss the colors so she sends me knew ones every fall!

My List:
1.Fall Colors (they just aren't quite as bright here)
2.The sun (seems to shine more in Maine)
3. Trick or treaters (we have had two in the last five years LOL) 
4.Decorations (everyone in our old neighborhood used to decorate for all the holidays)
5.Our old house
6.My bestest friend
7.Family Most of our family lives in the New England area)
8.Our old yard
9.Ginny's Flowers
10.The boys( my nephews)
12. Chinese Food (its just not the same here..they even call things by a different name)

 thanks for coming to take a peek! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Flip flop season

Here is my take on the sketch over at My Creative Sketches....I almost missed the deadline :(
I figured I would do another summer theme since the weather is now getting colder here!

thanks for popping by and taking a look at my latest project!

Beach Babe

Good afternoon my scrappy friends, I just wanted to share my layout I did for the Scrap Africa challenge...their sketch this time just screamed beach,so I pulled out my paper house endless summer papers...I really like the patterns and backgrounds but I'm not a glitter type person...every time I take this pack out there is glitter everywhere!(those green circles on the layout are all glitter) now I have it in my hair all over my desk LOL I off set the pattern paper on a piece of coordinating cardstock...
I did a bit of fussy cutting (out of a piece of scrap) because I really wanted the surfboard and waves..added some coordinating (well they looked like they coordinated to me LOL)  paint drops

all in all I like how it turned I have to clean up all the glitter and hide the rest of that paper!
thank you so much for coming to take a peek at my last project! Oh and Have a Fabulous Weekend!!!
