Decembers first PL page

I was late for my December reveal at  "SKETCHES IN THYME PL STYLE"   but I did get my
PL card and my whole page made today.       It is my first page for this December.   I have never
made a December Daily but was thinking about it last night when I couldn't sleep so I decided I 
would "kinda" do it PL style with some journaling each day about what we did for the day.
This page covers Dec. 1st and 2nd.

Here is the sketch for the PL card

Check out what the design team is doing the first week and then check out the new sketches each week during the month at   "SKETCHES IN THYME PROJECT LIFE STYLE"

Hurricane Smores

My granddaughters Avery and Dylan live in Orlando and of course they were effected with weather by Hurricane Matthew.    They didn't lose power or anything, just lots and lots of wind and rain.
But they were prepared and made smores inside and just stayed happy and dry.

The challenge this week at   "LASTING MEMORIES"  is  'Glitter and Glam'     The burnt orange paper on the left is a glitter paper and also the flower I fussy cut from a full sheet of 12x12 paper and it is glittered also.   Then I just added a strip of rhinestones and pearls and that is my glam.

Check out what all the design team members did and all the details for the challenge here at

American Girls

Today was my only full scrapping day for the next 10.   I might have some time tomorrow but you never know.     I already had this picture printed out of my granddaughter Avery and when I saw the November Week 3 sketch this morning at    "LET'S GET SKETCHY"  I  knew it would be perfect for this picture.      I had fun picking the papers.   I went to my tall stack of single sheet papers.   This is
where I put singles I buy or the odd and end piece or two from a collection.     I used 4 different papers (small flowers & polka dot paper are A and B sides of one) and all from different manufacturers but the colors all went great together I thought.

I matted the picture with a thin black card stock and then inked the edges of all the papers with black ink.   But the small strip of pink polka dot paper edged with green is actually from the tear strip of the
paper and I just cut it out as would work perfect size wise.

So check out the sketch below and go to    "LET'S GET SKETCHY"   to get all the challenge details.


About a month ago when my Dad and Brother were in time, we took a day trip about an hour north
of Kansas City to St. Joseph, MO and toured a few museums there.   The first being the Pony Express Museum.   We saw the sight where the first Pony Express rider left from.

I had plenty of pictures, plus my memorabilia pamphlet so I had to find just the right sketch to use.
That took me right to the Nov. 15th sketch at   "LET'S SCRAP"     It was perfect to showcase some
of my pictures I took.

Here is the sketch and check out all the details and DT layouts here at  "LET'S SCRAP"

Fun and Games

I used this grid design for my layout taking it from the "MY CREATIVE SKETCHES"  November sketch.       The last couple of days I've been making layouts from pictures of my daughters baby shower last Sunday.   This page, as in its title, is about the fun we had, decorating two onsies per person for the baby and the the games of how fast you could diaper and then swaddle a stuffed animal.    It was a great shower and we all had fun.

Here is the sketch and just go to  "MY CREATIVE SKETCHES"  to see what the Design team did with the sketch.   There is a lot of inspiration there.

Trick or Treat Golf Cart Style

I keep finding Halloween pictures I want to scrap.    Going to have two of the four kids we share and the grandkids in town the first weekend in December so I'm trying to get all their layouts made so I can send them home with them.   Barbara's family in Orlando we haven't seen in a year so have a lot to give to  here.   David's family across the state in St. Louis we see a lot more often so they get layouts every time, but will still have their Halloween layouts, like this one, and some more ready for them.

I used the November 1st sketch at   "STUCK ?! SKETCHES"   for this layout.      I went with a solid black card stock background and then just added my colors with the patterned papers I used.

Here is the sketch and you have till the end of the month to enter.   Plus the Nov. 15th sketch was just announced too, so be sure and check it all out at   "STUCK ?! SKETCHES"

Save the Turkey

It's that time of year for all the turkeys to take cover, unless you are the lucky one that the President pardons each year.    I think this one is asking for that pardon.

I am entering this card for the challenge at   "SIMPLY CREATE TOO"      Challenge #122 is.....
'Gobble Gobble'   ( you must have a turkey on your creation )
