VooDoo Donuts

While waiting around to see what Hurricane Dorian was going to do to Florida, our family from Orlando had a few days off and went out and about the city to have some fun.

One fun stop was at  VooDoo Doughnuts at Universal.   This was so fun to play with and use a combo
of fun colors.

I used the Sept. 15th layout Sketch #185 at  "SKETCH N SCRAP"    For the circles in the sketch I just decided to trace them in with Purple ink and then highlight them some with different shades of
purple bling so they would stand out more.   Plus the circles go with the round doughnuts and the the other circle shapes in the pictures.

Birthday Card

I have two birthdays this next week I have to get cards mailed out for so I thought that
Sketch #153 at  "SKETCH N SCRAP"  was perfect for a birthday card.

I had just used the purple polka dot paper on a layout either and it was still on my desk so
used that for my card and then went to my scrap folders and found two other purple
patterned papers for the flags.  Stamped my sentiment with purple on some scrap white
card stock and I was set.    I love using up scraps on cards.   Perfect for smaller projects.

Here is the sketch and link to this months challenges at  "SKETCH N SCRAP"


When making this card I also had in mind the challenge at  "CRAZY 4 CHALLENGES"
Their challenge #C4C502 is to use dots on your card, and that I did.

Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C502

Hi Crazy Fans,

It's week two of our September challenges and I (Frances) am back with another fun challenge for you.

Tomorrow, Sunday 15th September is International Dot Day, so for our challenge this week  let's include dots on our card. Use dotted papers, white gel pen dots on images, large dots, small dots, whatever your heart desires.

Spa Day by Dad

I never thought I would see this day.    My son started texting me all these pictures during the day this last Saturday.     He spent the better part of the day being hair stylist for his daughter in 3rd grade.
They did foil highlights in her hair and then he did a complete blow dry and made her wavy hair straight.    I couldn't believe the end result.   So I picked these pictures of all he sent  and combined
them for my take on the September sketch at  "LET'S GET SKETCHY".


I was looking through older pictures today and found these that I had never scrapped.    We gave each other bikes for Christmas 2006.   It was a mild Christmas season so on the 28th we went out to an
area bike trail and took a ride and tried out our new bikes.

For this layout I used the September "Scrappy Friends"  combo challenge.

I used the sketch at  "ROCHELLE SPEARS SCRAPBOOKING" and then the Photo Inspiration
at  "SCRAP AT STACY"   for the photo inspiration I pulled the sweater picture with my background paper, then I have pine cone paper,  the blue color on the jeans with the jeans we are wearing and also the blue plaid paper, then there was also a picture of a bike and I have that in our pictures and my title card.



I also got lucky with this layout because the  "USE YOUR STUFF"  challenge this week #374 is also a mood board.   And it is the same mood board.   So check out this fun challenge.

Dart Art

I had never heard of anything like this.   But my grandkids in Orlando went to one in the area over Labor Day weekend.   They posted all the pictures on face book and of course I had to make a layout.
I had saved the double page sketch at   "STICK IT DOWN"    I had just enough pictures to make my
layout.    They had so much fun they are taking the picture home and hanging it up.

Here is the link to "STICK IT DOWN"  and the sketch.   Check it out and also the single page sketch and the card sketch for September.

Let's Go

I'm still working on pictures for both sets of grandkids albums from their visit over the July 4th weekend.    I had used this picture on a layout for one set of the kids and now using this again for the Orlando set of kids.

I used the Sketch #184 at  "SKETCH N SCRAP" for this layout.

Favorite Recipe

We love using our smoker to make a lot of our meals and BBQ ribs are our favorite and we have combined 4 different recipes to get the perfect one for us.    This weekend we made the ribs again and also tried a new recipe for brussel sprouts that were also made in the smoke with bacon and onions.
They turned out great too.   We added breadsticks and tomatoes from the farmers market and had our Labor Day feast.

I used the sketch #387, the first for September at   "SKETCHES IN THYME"  for this layout.
I used papers from 4 different collections together not counting my dotted swiss background paper.
But I think it all worked out well together.

Here is the sketch and like to  "SKETCHES IN THYME".
