Happy Thursday Everyone.

 I hope that it is a fun one. In the month of August, we have so many Birthdays to celebrate that it put me in the mood to scrap my son's first birthday. Stuck?!Sketches sketch was so fitting for the five photos of my little one eating cake. My papers and stickers are from a Simple Stories collection called "Happy Day."

I also wanted to share what I got in the mail today. It's a very cool Mega Runner from Xyron that I won. I can't wait to try it. It might become my go to adhesive. I will let you know what I think. Be sure to skip on over to there site for your chance to win an amazing prize package.

Let's Ride!

My Mind's Eye did it again in creating a really fun boys collection to scrap is called "Boy Crazy." The papers and the stickers in this kit made this scrapping girl very happy.
The Boys Rule sketch that I decided to go with was created by Laura. I do not think that there is one layout that I do not love of hers. She is so amazing.

 When I was working on my layout, I decided to scrap more like Laura and add the little touches. I put a brown boarder around most of my layers. I used pop up dots on the banner, the star in the corner and the beeps on the circle The only thing that I did not do was to ink and splatter my layout. I am truly happy with the look that I was able to achieved.

Thanks for the inspiration Laura, You ROCK!!!

I'm on a roll.

This is my 3rd and last post for tonight, I promise. This sketch was one of Laura's from Let's Get Sketchy. For those who still would like to play, it's a Team B Aug. week 2. Once I figured out my photo and kit that I wanted to use, it came together pretty quick.

My paper kit is an oldie but a goodie. It is "Your's Truly" by EP.

Another Post!

Now, since I had so much fun completing Let's Get Sketchy, Team B's Aug 4 week sketch, I thought that I would continue on and play along with Team A Aug week 3. This sketch was created by Jenessa.

Here is the sketch:

and this is my Summer Days layout. My papers are EP Paradise Beach and my stickers are EP A Perfect Summer.

I can't wait for fall.

I love everything that this season has to offer, the cool weather and the beautiful colors of the leaves. When I came across these photos of my son and his Grandfather raking leaves, I thought that the Harvest Lanes from Simple Stories was the perfect collection to scrap with. Bev from Let's Get Sketchy created a wonderful sketch. If you would like to play along, this sketch is Team B August week 4.

Here is what I did with this challenge.

The Best of Buds

It's been awhile since I did a Boys Rule challenge. This sketch was created by Lynn and was a lot of fun to play with. 

I decided to scrap my son, who is now in his twenties. Hip Hip! One down, two thousand photos to go.

I will admit that I am a paper hoarder and since I have so many old paper collections, I decided to break open a Teresa Collins collection called Memorabilia. I just love the color combo in this kit. It feels good to be able to enjoy the papers with the photos instead of sitting in a box in the closet just waiting and waiting and waiting to be used.

Die Cut Challenge

Hurry, there is still time to play along in the July 25 Die Cut Challenge Beverage and Food at StuckOnUsSketches.  Today is the last day.

Here is what I created for this challenge.

 It's a cute slice of cake box created by Mary from SVG Cuts.
The die cut tag and stamped image is Stampin' Up! and my paper is out of my big bin of scraps. I am not certain who the manufacture is, but the papers did create a fun layered look.

Update: It pays to play because my slice of cake box made Top 3!
