Frames and Fun!

Hello Ladies.  Sharing a fun layout using a sketch from Elle's Studio.  
I wanted this page to be fun and I feel that is what it turned out to be.
I used gelatos on the frames.  So happy to finally get my hands on some.
I bought them when I went away for my scrap weekend.  Looking forward
to playing around and creating more with them.

#TBT Picture ~ POW

Here is my #TBT picture from my son's birthday last year.  (He is going to be 10 in a week!)  So the picture is not from that long ago but still a throwback.  I used a mix of old and new papers and embellishments.  Combining different collections.  The sketch is newer, so the only thing old or throwback is my picture.

Getting started...

Apple Pies ~ A Yearly Tradition

I LOVED playing with this collection by Simple Stories, Homespun.  It was perfect for our annual apple pie making pictures.  Today I have two similar themed layouts (like the other day) but totally different design.  The layout with my daughter is actually my own design!  

P.S. the background paper was a find at my scrapbook weekend.  
I just loved it and it matched with the Homespun collection.

Happy baking up some layouts!!

This was a quick layout that I put together last week.  I tried a different technique with 
the star and didn't like it.  So I decided to just cut out the star shape out.  
Keep in mind this was taken during my bad batch of pictures.  

A Scrap from Marci: No More Pictures??? Oh No!!!!
As you can see, I modified the sketch to suit my one picture.
Papers are from the Little Sport Collection by Fancy Pants.  

Happy Scrapping,

Boy Scouts

 Yes, I have been busy crafting this week.  Must be all this cold and snow (plus days off - Presidents Day and snow days).  Speaking of snow, I think that is what is affecting the lighting and throwing off my pictures.

I used a lot of Bella Blvd. Collection on these two layouts (Molly, Max and Lucky Starz)!  I love Bella Blvd.  Thanks to my bloggy friend Julie for turning me on to them.  Julie always creates amazing layouts with their product!!

Acckkkk!!  I am not sure what is going on with my pictures lately!  They just aren't right.  Maybe it's the sun, or the reflection of the snow?!?! Hopefully I didn't change any camera setting.  Oh well, this is one of my ALL time favorite pages and I feel the picture does it no justice!!  

Thanks for letting me vent!!  Hope you have an amazing Friday and a wonderful weekend

Hello Throwback Thursday!!  Here's an older baseball picture of my son.  I used old stash 
and created my own design. I wanted the look of a baseball diamond.  And the exciting 
thing about this page is it was my first time stitching.  So fun!!!

I also want to share Svitlana's  adorable card from the last Make it Monday sketch.
Somehow I missed her email.  So sorry Svitlana but happy to share it with all!
And yes...there is still time to play along.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stitching!!!

Hello.  I have been busy scrapping this weekend with the little snowstorm we got and the bitter cold. So excited to share what I have been creating.  I am thrilled to share this layout because I have finally had a chance to play with one of the sketches from Let's Scrap - on time that is.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

As I was posting this, I was reflecting on the sweet bond my husband and daughter have.  This was the first year, after 6 fun years, that they did not attend the Girl Scouts Sweetheart dance.  My DD and the troop I helped lead was finished after 5th grade.

The sweet thing ~ My daughter loved this time with her dad so much that they went out to dinner together this year.  And yes, I took a picture before they left!!!

Hope you enjoy your time today with your loved ones.  More snow coming here, but we will enjoy our own Valentine's day fun with friends who are sleeping over, some homemade pizza and ice cream sandwiches!!  YUM!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

An Okay Layout ~ that I kind of Like!?!?

Happy Friday the 13th!!!  I have some layouts that I sorta of planned out but never scrapped them.
The other day I decided I wanted to get them done and behind me.  I wasn't crazy with how the papers 
looked together. But now that it is complete, it's not that bad ~ kinda cute and fun like the pictures.

Inspiration from Laura Whitaker's Sketch

#TBT (Throwback Thursday)

For those of you who are not on FaceBook, on Thursdays people post old picture for Throwback Thursday are #TBT.  I decided that it would be fun for the Memory Nest Facebook group to share layouts for #TBT that we created with old pictures and maybe even old stash and an old sketch.

Want to post a layout or join our group? CLICK HERE!

Here is a layout I created the other day of my son from 2013.  Amazing how much they change in two years time. I used old stash but actually used Crystal's sketch for this month's challenge. (Still time to play along).

This is my #TBT layout from last week that I posted to the FB group.  It uses old pictures (some of my all time favorites of my kiddos on the beach), old stash and an older sketch!!  

Used a Laura Whitaker sketch

Happy Throwback Thursday~
