The Reason I Smiled

This fun  paper from the Bella Blvd. Color Chaos collection was perfect for the photo I took of my son holding my hand as we walked across the rocks at the beach.  He was so sweet to help me so that I would not fall.  Of course, I snapped a picture!!  His kindness was the reason that I smiled!!

I turned the sketch from Stuck?! Sketches
Love being inspired by Laura's sketches!

little things mean the MOST

Little things sometimes mean the most in life.  Another reason why I love catching the 
little memories on a scrapbook page!!  I chose red, white and black papers from the Bella Blvd. 
Color Chaos Collection to accentuate the little pirates that were in my backyard using 
their BIG imagination.

I was inspired by the sketch 
A very fun sketch!!

Take Two!

Hello!!  Today I am sharing my two takes on Crystal's sketch, which was posted yesterday!! 
My sister in law to be asked my daughter, nieces and me to be in the wedding.  My daughter was 
over the moon excited (she wants to wear high heels - and she will be 13 when they get married)  
I loved the way that she asked us (see below), and I was so honored and thrilled to be asked myself.


As you can see I turned the sketch.

Some close-ups of my enamel dots (homemade) and title.  

And a close up of the bow I made and my stitching!!  I just love this page!!!

She saw the idea on Pinterest!!

I also created a page for my son's book turning the sketch the other way.  On this page, 
I used the COLOR CHAOS collection by Bella Blvd. Available at The Memory Nest
Shipping special extended through April ~ see side panel of blog.  I am so happy that I 
captured these pictures.  My son went through a few days where he would wear these 
cowboy boots.  They were mine when I was little.  

Check out that cool jean washi tape I got at Michael's.  More homemade enamel dots and you can see how I tried to duplicate the star with the circle around it printed on the paper with my own embellishments.  I put a cutout circle around the captured star.

And my fun title that was cut our on my Cricut with the Old West cartridge.  

Hope you will play along with us for your chance to win.  
Crystal's sketch is so fun and can inspire many different layouts!!

Happy Scrapping,

Hello Love, Lucky Me!

Hello.  I am back today with another two page layout.  I used the 
Simple Stories collection A Charmed Life mixed with elements
from other collections.

Inspiration for this layout came from the sketch at Let's Scrap. Unfortunately, 
I was not able to create with it in time to link it up, but I will sure make sure 
to stop by and let the DT at Let's Scrap know that their sketch inspired me.

#TBT Turks and Caicos

Hello!  As promised, here is another layout using the Fancy Pants Office Suite Collection. The colors in this collection worked perfectly with our family photo session when we were in Turks and Caicos back in 2011 to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.  I think I was waiting for this collection to scrap these (wink wink).

Thank you, Lisa for you help with photographing two page layouts!  The collage method worked wonderfully!!

Inspired by the sketch from Scrap Much?
Thanks Laura for the inspiration!!

On the Map with YOU!

Hello Ladies.  Took a little time off from blogging to catch up on life and some scrapping.  I had so many pictures that I just wanted to get in albums.  So this weekend I got to it.  I scrapped 30 layouts and a few pocket pages - very simple scrapping.  But I am happy with them and now lots of my Christmas and Halloween pictures are out of piles and ready to be put in books.

Today I am sharing a layout created with the new Fancy Pants Office Suite Collection.  LOVE the colors and textures in the papers and embellishments.  Get yours at The Memory Nest and take advantage of our shipping deal.

Inspiration from this page is 
from a fabulous Laura Whitaker sketch
from a Boys Rule Challenge.  Hmm, does
my hubby count?  He does rule!!

Here is a close up of the Office Suite "fantabulous" collection.
I will be back soon with more layouts using this collection.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Shopping,
