Dinner with a View


I used the June  pagemap sketch at “SCRAP CHALLENGE YOURSELF” for this layout.

Pictures of myself at one the specialty dinners on our cruise.  We were sailing in Alaska and had such great views from our table as we had a great seafood dinner.

Our Breakfast


I made this layout using the June challenges at the Scrappy Sisters.  I used the June sketch made by 
"ROCHELLE SPEARS BLOG" and then the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at "SCRAP WITH STACY"  I did
the diagonal, Stars, Circle(s) and Enamel Dots.   The funny thing is that I first was looking at the May 
tic-tac-toe board and did Wood, Arrow, Washi Tape.   So I had to go back and adjust and add what I needed for the June challenge to work.   But I'm happy with everything I have on the layout now.

Set Sail to Alaska

We just got back this week from an Alaskan cruise so I have all kinds of pictures to scrap.

I’m entering this layout at “SCRAP CHALLENGE YOURSELF”.    I have a picture of myself and my hubby and to go with the challenge I fussy cut my embellishments, the passport/ship/wheel, the cruising vibes with ship top and also the vacation vibes and wheel.

I used the sketch at “ROCHELLE SPEARS BLOGSPOT”  for this layout so will be adding it there for the Scrappy Friends challenge because I also did the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at “SCRAP WITH STACY”.   I did the middle column down, Wood - Arrow - Washi Tape.

 I'm entering this layout at    "CSI CHALLENGE"  CASE FILE #432 FOR APRIL.

I was inspired by the spring flowers and the pink and pale green colors.

Create a scrapbook layout using one of our challenges. You may submit as many layouts as you would like for each challenge. We also don’t mind you combining our challenges with other challenges or design team work, provided you mention CSI, along with a link to our challenge,

Covered Bridge


I made this layout using the challenges with Scrappy Friends.   I used the sketch at  "THROUGH THE EYES OF ROCHELLE SPEARS".   What a fun sketch this was to work with.  I'm going to be saving it to use again sometime.    I can see me filling it with 6 pictures next time.     

Next I used the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at "SCRAP WITH STACY".   I did the bottom row across  3 or more pictures, Chipboard (my tile and embellishment in center right square are both chipboard) and Tag.

I just love finding murals, old or new on the side of buildings.   Finding this display last spring in an alley way in Springfield, IL.    Then I found out they do this every year with new murals so I will have to go back to see more again.

This was such a simple double page layout to make but I loved the background papers I found to use and then just added some matting to go with the color on each mural and my pages were finished.

All Aboard

 We are on board the train for our trip from Leadville, CO through the Rockies in the area.   It was an Octoberbest train ride so we got to see trees with leaves turning and also snow.   It was a great experience.

I used the Color Palette Challenge #123 at "CHALLENGE YOURSELF".
