I thank my lucky stars for you.



I just finished this layout for a challenge in one of the yahoo groups I am in and knew it would also work for the newest challenge at "LASTING MEMORIES"  that I saw today.

Challenge #319 is to use at least 4 different patterned papers.   I sued the Simple Stories - Heart collection and I have exactly 4 different patterned papers from that collection on my layout.

LM #391 - All About Paper - Use At Least 4 Different Patterned Papers

Hello, hello! Happy Sunday to you! I hope you are having a good weekend.

An April PL page


I just finished this Project Life page covering about the last 9 days.   I decided to make it using a challenge at  "SOUL-SCRAPPERS"     I used TTT36   Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge.
I used the center vertical column and used Journal Strips, Polka Dot paper and Stars.   I have the polka dot paper in 5 of the 6 pockets,  journal strips with all the pictures and along with other wood veneer embellishments I used 4 different stars.

Here is the link to  "SOUL SCRAPPERS"  and the Tic-Tac-Toe  board.


Hello card


When I saw sketch #449 this morning at  "TUESDAY MORNING SKETCHES"  I knew I wanted to use it because its so versatile and can be used for nay type of card.     I went with a simple Hello card and will probably be mailing it off to my Dad.  No use just letting it sit here and wait for something,  I'll just use it now.

Here is the link to  "TUESDAY MORNING SKETCHES"  and the sketch I used.


Picnic @ Home


I thought this was such a cute picture of my Granddaughter Dylan about to have a picnic at home with her Mom.   I used the sketch #151 at  "SKETCH N SCRAP"  to make this.   I kept it clean and simple with no more embellishments other than the ribbon and ants on the picture frame.

Here is the sketch and link to   "SKETCH N SCRAP".



I'm also entering this layout at  "SOUL SCRAPPERS"   for their April  Pick 3 challenge.

Shine Brightly


When I saw the latest sketch #321 at "SKETCHES IN THYME"  it made me think of the latest collection of paper I had bought.  Recollections - Watercolor collection.   So I started right out making this layout.    This picture was taken on a Spring Break cruise my stepson and family went on last month and I've been righting for the right inspiration to use it.       The shine brightly was also in the collection on one piece of paper and I just fussy cut around it to use as a title for my layout.

Here is the link to  "SKETCHES IN THYME"  and the  sketch I used.

Christmas Gifts 1978



Today I'm concentrating on scrapping some misc. old pictures I pulled out of albums a couple of weeks ago.   I love scrapping Christmas pictures so this one was so much fun to do.  My son was 15 months old at the time and I have pictures of him here on Christmas Eve, Christmas morning and later on Christmas day.   So that is why he is in different clothes in all the pictures.

I made this layout with the "SCRAP OUR STASH"   April Blend-A-Sketch Challenge.     It is so much fun looking at two different sketches and then combining elements from both of them to come up with your layout.    I used the layout of the pictures in the left sketch and then the top right from that sketch also.  Then I went with the larger piece of paper behind the pictures from the sketch on the right and also the circles from that sketch that I used doilies for.     The twist to go with combining the two sketches was to also use polka dot paper or enamel dots.     I have a background polka dot paper and then also the large polka dot paper also.

Here is the link to  "SCRAP OUR STASH"  and the sketches to combine.    Have fun creating.
