Another great sketch site.

This is Shirley's September sketch. I am so glad that I found her blog. It was a great one to play with.

I combined two different Simple Stories collection to complete my layout. I fussy cut the Hooray, pinwheels and starts. The bling inside the stars were my dollar bin find at Michael's.

Fall fun!

Part of the fun of fall for me is decorating my house with the season. In October, all the spooks and Jack o lanterns come out and November, it's all about the rich color of autumn and the bird.  So today, I decided to play in the StuckOnUSketches Geometric Shape challenge. The shape that I decided to go with is the triangle. I used a SVGCuts file called Party on Elm Street. It was super easy to cut and assemble. The most time consuming is picking out the fun papers to cut.

Cardstock: black and yellow is AC Cardstock
Paper: My Mind's Eye (Spiderweb)
Bling: Darcey

Who said that you can't add bling to a boys page?

That would be me. I have such a hard time adding bling to a masculine layout. While rummaging through a paper bins to find the perfect papers to compliment my photos, I found an Echo Park collection called, "Paradise Beach". It made scrapping this great sketch by Laura Whitaker so easy....... and adding the bling and gold foliage even easier. It really completed the page to my liking.

Paper: Echo Park
Bling: Daiso
Foliage: Recycled from a Christmas gift basket

Hurry if you would like to join this sketch challenge at Stuck?! Sketches. You only have one day left to play.

Are you ready to hop?

Are you ready to get into the fall spirit? Let's Get Sketchy is having a really fun blog hop. Be sure to check it out because to DT create some really cool projects.

They even had a mood board challenge to play along with.

Here is what I created. It's a card bouquet made up of  fall colored sunflowers. You can find the  SVGCuts file here. This flower collection that Mary created is awesome. I am so old school that  I just cut extra petals and glued them together at the top of the petals to create the card. I guess for the more computer savvy people, all you would need to do is weld the top together to create the card.... So my fingers are a bit sticky, but all and all I still love the end result.

Papers: AC Cardstock
Ribbon: Recycled from a gift basket
Lavender is from my plant in the yard.
The centers are stippled with a gold paint pen.

11 months and walking.

Some kids just do not like to be a baby. My son is one of them. Before he could master the act of crawling, he started walking. Today at 32, he is still that way. Always learning, mastering and then moving on to the next challenge. I can honestly say that he will never be stuck in a box. You go B! 

Here is my take on this fun sketch from My Scraps & More.

Paper and Stickers: Echo Park This & That collections
Lg Circles: Cut with my Cricut Expression
Small Circles: Stampin' up! punch

I'm Back.

My hubby and I just got back from the best vacation ever. We explored Canada and Alaska. Now that I am all rested up, I am excited to start my scrapping and card making again. My girlfriend's Birthday was yesterday. When I saw this great sketch created by the one and only Laura Whitaker at Let's Capture Our Memories, I knew that this was going to be her card.

I love the simplicity of this card sketch and it helps to have on hand some pretty papers and stickers from Echo Park. This card really brought a smile to my face and hers.
