A break from scrapping

Hello Ladies!  Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!  It was gorgeous here.  Sorry I have been very absent lately.  Think I am the one in a rut lately as far as scrapping.  I had so much scrapping mojo for a while, but that has vanished.  I hope to get it back soon!!  But I am not going to rush it - I need to really be in the mood to scrap - I am sure a lot of you know what I mean.  Until then, I will try to visit your blogs - maybe your projects will help inspire me.  

I have been busy doing my other favorite thing, reading.  I am a huge reader from April through September.  Have you read any good books lately???  Please share.  I have also painted my front door and started staining the deck.  I plan on finishing that up tomorrow.  And the gardens need so much TLC - not sure when we will get to that.  Hope you are all well!

Happy Spring,

Make it Monday Card and Layout

Hello!  I am back with more inspiration for our first Make it Monday sketch for May.  I created a layout and Rachel created a card.    I love how our projects coordinate!!  

I had a few other pictures that would work well with this sketch, so I may be back with more inspiration and takes.  Sometimes I like doing that.  Plus the pages are for different scrapbooks so one would never know it was created from the same sketch.

When I saw the Latte Love flair, I had to have it.  
Our dog's name is Latte (for those of you who don't know).
Flair from Etsy shop A Flair for Buttons.

Rachel Coleman's Card

You can play along whether you are a card maker 
or scrapbooker for a chance to WIN!!

Happy Creating,

Keep it Weird

Hello.  it has been a while, longer than I would like.  I seem to go through these phases of busyness and I just can't keep up with the blog posts and visits.  Hopefully this week will be better.

Here is a layout using the Color Chaos collection by Bella Blvd.  I LOVE these papers.
Well, I just LOVE Bella Blvd.  

Inspired by this sketch from 
 Barb's Blab and Creations: Field Trip

Available at The Memory Nest

Happy scrapping,

River Glow!

Hello friends!  It has been a while since I posted a layout!!  Busy weekend with a scrapbook 
event, a 40th birthday party for a friend, and my niece's 1st Holy Communion.  But the 
weather has been gorgeous so no complaining about the busyness! 

This layout was inspired by one that I saw created with the same Fancy Pants collection, 
Office Suite!!  I LOVE LOVE this collection.  It was created by Alena Grinchuk.  I decided
 to scraplift the design but make it my own - AND I was THRILLED with the way it came out.  
So thrilled I created a similar one (will post soon).  I was drawn to the way she used the 
background paper!

Here is the layout that inspired me from the Fancy Pants Blog.  I just realized 
that it was actually based around a Page Maps sketch.
 Fancy Pants Designs Studio Collection available at

This collection is still available at The Memory Nest
And if you want to be inspired by more Fancy Pants
creations, stop by and follow my PinBoard! Most the layouts
I pin are created with Fancy Pants products that tMN carries!

Happy Scrapping,
