Sequins and Shakers

Here is the sketch I used to create this layout.  Pretty close to what I had envisioned - if anything better!  Don't you LOVE when that happens.  Thank you for visiting!

Happy Scrapping,

Make it Monday ~ First Challenge for July!

I know it is a day before July, but I wanted to post July's challenge a little early since the first falls
on Tuesday!  I wanted to make sure you had enough time to play with both challenges in July!

I am excited to share Katie Lamb's first sketch.  I am thrilled to have her designing 
sketches for our challenges!!  Thank you Katie and welcome as a sketch designer.

We also have a special guest designer playing along with us this month. 
Let's Welcome Jane from Purplejet Loves Crafts.  I always love seeing
the layouts she creates and appreciate her playing along with our challenges! 

Now it is your turn to create with us!  Remember: cards or layouts are welcome
and please link back to The Memory Nest in some way.  We love seeing what
you all create with our sketches! Make it Monday No. 20!

Happy Crafting,

Last Meeting with Troop 60507

Time to share a couple of layouts of our last Girl Scout meeting.  My daughter became a 
Girl Scout in Kindergarten and I was one of the leaders.  After SIX wonderful years we
are disbanding our troop.  The girls are off to Middle School and many more activities.

These layouts were created for some challenges!  I LOVE using sketches for inspiration!
The sketches really keep me scrapping - a lot!!!

Faces were blurred to protect the privacy of the girls!

Let's Get Sketchy

Products used are from the Jillibean Soup Collection 

See more Chilled Cucumber Soup layouts here and here
and Dapper Dan creations herehere and here
Lots of inspiration for you!

Happy Scrapping,

Spending time with The Pier

Today I am showcasing layouts using The Pier collection by American Crafts.
I love the bright fun colors mixed with the natural textures in this paper collection.
Plus the ephemera pieces are so fun to play with AND it is on sale!

The Sweetest Picnic 

My take on my sketch for June.  Still time to play along. 
I didn't use paper from two different manufactures but may 
use the sketch again and do just that!

She's Got a Ticket to Write

 Close up of the title and the wood chevron pieces (painted them red 
and then added them to match background paper and give dimension).
Inspired by sketch from Let's Get Sketchy!

Umbrella Weather

Close up of title.  Add a sequin to the umbrella/hexagon 
to make it look more authentic.

Cut out matching umbrellas/hexagons and placed them on 
background with pop up adhesive again adding dimension.

Pool + Sun = Fun

Close up of the details.

Stop by and check out this fun Summer Collection - The Pier - with endless possibilities. 
 These papers and some embellishments are also available in our Summer Theme Pack!

 Happy Summer,

Mosey on Over and Create!

Howdy Cowgirls.  Feel like it has been a while.  Getting used to the summer with my kiddos.  Completely enjoying the time with them!  So lucky!!

Is anyone else having trouble with blogger?  I am not able to see the recent posts are click on anything (Monday and Tuesday).  Very weird.  Hope it is fixed soon.

A couple of layouts from my daughter's class night celebration - a hoedown theme and a lot of fun.  I used Crystal's sketch for the first layout.  Have you played along with her sketch for this month?  And the second one I just kind of threw together.  I haven't done that in a while.  Sketches really inspire me and allow me to complete layouts quicker.

 Happy Moseying Over and Playing along,
