Sketch challenges and Chalk Studio!

Such a fun sketch from Let's Get Sketchy Week 3.  This was my 
first time using corrugated paper on a layout.  I have to say the tear
in the bottom I love - and it was due to a spill during scrapbook 
weekend.  "What happens at Snowflake Stays at the Scrap" - LOL
That was the saying this year - it was on our t-shirts! Just glad
I was able to salvage the layout...and LOVED the outcome!!

This layout was also created with a sketch.  I will post it as soon as I find
it on my Pinterest board.  Love being inspired by all the sketches out there.
I did not add embellishments - I can always go back and add some - but
I kind of like the simpleness of this layout of my daughter.

Both of these layouts were created with papers and embellishments
 from the Chalk Studio collection by My Mind's Eye.  Love the colors
in this pack.  So soft and beautiful.

Happy Friday!
Hope you have a crafty weekend!

Featuring: Chilled Cucumber Soup

Thursday and time for another product reveal!  Jennifer Reilly is back
today sharing three - yes - three layouts using the Jillibean Soup 
Collection Chilled Cucumber Soup.  Jen had so much fun playing with 
this collection she could not stop creating layouts for all of you to see. 

This paper collection worked with all these adorable pictures of the
boys in her life.  The green and yellows are great for baby pictures,
school pictures or capturing time with dad.  I love the way that all 
her pages look so different using the same collection.  Shows that 
you can do so much with a variety of papers and embellishments.

 Chilled Cucumber Soup is on Sale through January along with the rest 
of the featured products for January.  The ladies on the Design Team 
did an amazing job inspiring us and creating with the monthly collections.

Happy Scrapping,

You'll Shoot Your Eye Out, KID!

This is my second post for today because I wanted to share this fun
layout I created with one of the Sketch~N~Scrap challenges for January.  
When I saw this sketch, I knew exactly what picture I wanted to use it for. 
I think that February will have more time for me to play so that I am not
down to the wire with linking my layouts to challenges. 

This layout was created with the Finnley Collection 
that Becky highlighted yesterday on the blog!

Happy Scrapping,

Time to play along ~ Finally!!

Yippee!!  I finally had time to play along with some sketch challenges.  

The first one I created a couple of weeks ago for the Let's Get Sketchy 
week 1 challenge.  Unfortunately, I just had time to photograph it. I love
playing along with their challenges.  Here is my take on the sketch.
Oh - and it also goes along with The Memory Nest Color challenge
for January!

This layout was inspired by Crystal's sketch from a challenge right here
at The Memory Nest.  I had so much fun using her sketch.  There is 
still time for you to play along and link up!  Thank you to all who already
shared their creations.  This layout was created on my scrap weekend! 

I will be back with more layouts! Until then....

Happy Scrapping,

Finnley Paper Collection

Tuesday and a new day!  

Becky Torres is back with this great layout using the Finnley Collection 
by Glitz.  I love what she did with the different patterned papers to 
showcase these adorable pictures of her dog.  

This is a fun collection of papers.  I have to admit - I did not know this, 
but I heard that this paper pack was for scrapping baby themed pages.
I think it is so versatile to scrap just about any picture.  Great for masculine 
pages and outdoors. I will be posting some layouts soon that I created on 
my scrapbook weekend using this collection

The Finnley collection is on sale for a few more days as part of our featured
collections for January.  See what other collections are featured!

Happy Scrapping,

Guest Designer and Crafty Creations!

Happy Monday Ladies.  I am back from my 3 day scrap trip.  I was able to complete 
35 pages.  Woohoo.  So that is why I have been a little absent.  

On a sad note, while I was away this weekend, a little boy on my son's baseball team 
passed away.  Some of you may have seen the page about 7 year old Ben on Facebook  
He had a severe asthma  attack that put him in a coma.  Today my husband, one of the team 
assistant coaches, and I will be attending the wake.  It will probably be one of the hardest 
wakes I  have been to in my life.  I am so saddened for his family and siblings.  
Please keep Ben and his family in your prayers!

In the midst of all the excitement and sadness, I messed up on one of the post dates for  
another guest designer.  Jessica Barnes was invited to design with the Cut and Paste 
collection by My Mind's Eye.  She is getting a spotlight in this post for her lovely 
creations.  Thanks Jessica and sorry for the confusion. 

I love what Jessica did with these fun papers.  The pink colors are great for her to 
showcase these adorable pictures of her girls.   The paper and embellishments she 
used are from the Adorbs group of this collection.  I love how Jessica combines
the different patterned papers on her layouts.  The matching butterflies she created
are adorable.  Lovely layouts, Jessica.  Stop by Jessica's blog to say hi.  

The papers and embellishments from Cut and Paste are on sale through January.  
Stop by and check out amazing deals on this collection filled with endless possibilities. 

It is also time to share your crafty creations.  Please link up your paper crafts for all 
to see.  Inspire and Be Inspired!!  Thanks to all who linked up a couple of weeks ago.  

Happy Monday,
