"7 Years"

A LO from Bailey's birthday dinner using the MME Hip Hooray collection! TFL

"Beach Babes"

I just LOVE how this page turned out and that is exciting because I don't always feel that way! Plus, I had started a page this morning with pics from my graduation for a challenge and I just stared at it for awhile. SO, the scrapbooking day didn't start well! I used almost all American Crafts products on this page and I love how bright and colorful it is! That is what will be fun about doing my Mexico pics! TFL!


I did this LO for the blog site My Creative Sketches. I used this adorable picture of my cat and decided to use WRMK kitty line. TFL!


"Stars at Heart"

I did this LO for the one-hour challenge last week at ClubCK. The challenge was to use a memory board on your LO and I had these photo strips lying around and I thought they would work well for this challenge! I used the new pink ribbon from Stampin' UP! Love it! TFL!


Just a LO using MME Lime Twist and pictures from Ryan's cousin's wedding in 2010. TFL.

I LOVE PURPLE! It is totally my favorite color, but hardly EVER get to use it in scrapbooking! Sad huh? Companies just do not make much for purple patterned paper. Ah well. Today I dug through all my patterned paper looking for purple, teal (abundance), and brown and came up with these papers which all happen to be from Echo Park. I used these colors for the Issue Challenge at ClubCK. I used a Creative Scrappers sketch and the word "remember" for the Bird is the Word challenge! TFL!


"Summer Nights"

I had all these photos from Stiftungsfest in Norwood Young America two years ago and I wanted to fit them all on one page! I used to really like two pagers, but not anymore! I used an old Sketchy Thursday's sketch that I found on Pinterest and I was able to fit them all on by cutting them down a lot! I used all scraps which is a huge plus too. I also used Kraft for the background for the current FIT challenge at ScrapFit! TFL!

'Nurses need Shots too"

I got the idea for this one from Pinterest and I love how it turned out. I used my fav Amy Tan line and misting and put it all together!

"Uncle Ryan" Artful Delight Sketch

I needed to scrap this photo of Ryan and Bailey up in Duluth Labor Day weekend 2010.  I used the Artful Delight sketch and used it as one photo instead of two. I used OA's sidewalks papers and I am pretty satisfied with it! TFL!

"Hold your Hand"

I am loving a lot of the new releases that are going to be introduced at Winter CHA, but My Mind's Eye has done it again and they have a lot of neat ones! This LO is from a challenge on their blog to use their sketch and the theme "new." I used new in my title and all MME product except for the twine and alphas. Thanks for a great challenge and I can't wait to get my hands on some new product!

"Forever With You"

I decided to scrap the photos from my proposal today! I used some MME and Pebbles papers as well as some Jillibean Soup stickers. I even used my sewing machine again to stitch over the hearts -- worked great! TFL

"Venetian Beauty"

I got in two layouts today and also managed to go to my nephew's wrestling match and rec volleyball tonight! Only thing is, I did not do any studying. This LO uses some older OA papers from the Schoolhouse line. I did a lot of fussy cutting on this one and did not add much more. The photo is from our Las Vegas trip last year in the Venetian hotel. TFL.

Sketchy Thursday "Just Let Loose"

So sad to find out that Sketchy Thursdays will no longer be operating! This is their last sketch and as always, I really liked it! I used the MME Kraft Fun Day collection, which is so much fun! I really like how this page turned out. The Issue Challenge at ClubCK is to use stickers in your journaling, so I used some word stickers from all those sheets that I have! TFL!

Mr. & Mrs.

This LO is from Miranda and Jeremy's wedding back in 2010. It was the first time that I was brave enough to use my new sewing machine on a LO. It turned out pretty good, but there are still some things I need to figure out! TFL

Making Waves

This LO was for the scraplift challenge at ClubCK. I scraplifted KellyF's LO, "Explore." I still like her LO way better, but mine turned out pretty well too!

Creative Scrappers sketch

This is a Creative Scrappers sketch from a couple of weeks ago! It worked out perfect for this graduation photo of my cousin. I really like how it turned out and I even used quite a bit of flowers on the LO for me! TFL


After almost a year of doing the challenges at Sketchy Thursdays, I was finally chosen as a FAVE for my "Devoted" LO! So exciting, thanks so much!

Sketchy Thursdays 1.5

This LO is based off of the current Sketchy Thursdays sketch and it was a prompt for the one-hour challenge at ClubCK to scrap about your life right now. Well, my life right now is consumed with studying for my nursing boards! I am definitely getting sick of it! I haven't received my authorization to test yet by the MN state board of nursing, but some of my classmates at the beginning of the alphabet have already. They are saying that the testing centers are booked out until February which really bums me out! I could have started my job already if I wanted to. Anywho... I really like how this LO turned out and I can't believe I got it done in an hour! I used the December Scrapbook Circle kit, plus some other goodies. I better get back to studying! TFL!


Creative Scrappers #189

I did this LO for CS #189. I was able to use a photo of Ryan and I on Christmas Eve and use some older Echo Park Christmas papers! TFL

Sketches with a Twist

Sketches with a Twist first ever sketch was released on January 1st! This is what i came up with for it. I liked the sketch a lot and thought it was good for all of these photos, but I don't really like how the LO turned out. Well, I am off to study some more for boards! TFL!

Devoted - Sketchy Thursdays

The LO was based off of the current Sketchy Thursday sketch and the issue challenge at ClubCK to make a LO about a mood or feeling. I also borrowed some inspiration from KellyF's LO because as always, I love her work!
