Uh oh.. wrong girl!

I LOVE the papers from Glitz Cashmere Dane collection! I only have two of them that I got from kits and I love their patterns. I will have to get my hands on the entire collection. 

For this page, I wanted to use black and white/gray with teal! I thought that the pop of the red would help explain the title. As always, lots of layering! I LOVE the arrows stamps from Studio Calico, so fun! TFL!

Love this Life

The second layout that I completed today comes from a challenge at Two Peas in a Bucket. It was a color challenge to use red, teal, and gray. Besides the background paper (which I love and have one more of), everything else was scraps! 

I finally decided I should start scrappin' SOME of the photos from my wedding weekend that aren't professional (since I haven't gotten those back yet). These photos are from our rehearsal. It was fun to look through my supplies and find the things that matched these colors! I am likely to use these colors again.. they look cool together! TFL!

To be Thankful...

There has been a lot of challenges focusing on gratitude and being thankful.. which is great! I have now done two in a row and used the same Elle's Studio "Thankful" tag on both! I didn't even know I had two of it! :)

This LO is based on a challenge at Scrapbook Circle and uses the current scrapbook circle kit, Harvest Moon. The challenge was to use the quote, "It is not happy people who are thankful, but thankful people who are happy." Great quote and so true! Instead of doing a Thanksgiving layout, I did a Mother's Day LO! This photo is of my mom, my sister, and I on Mother's Day 2011. TFL!

Thankful for you and a Card

Yes.. you read the title right.. I made a card.. ugh! Not my thing at all!

But first! One of the challenges at the My Mind's Eye blog this month is to create about something you are grateful for! I chose these two photos of myself with my grandmothers from last Thanksgiving. I sure am grateful and thankful for these two beautiful ladies. They both have battled and fought cancer and I am so glad they are here with me today.

I used mostly the Follow Your Heart MME lines. There are only a few things on this page that is not MME -- the "Thankful" (Elle's Studio), twine, butterflies (Studio Calico), and the "family" pennant (OA). I think I did well!

Up next is the card (ugh) that I made for the blog hop going on right now at ScrapFit. The challenge was to use the color inspiration they provided and turn it into a card! If you know me... I HATE making cards. I don't know why..there is just something about it! But! I wanted to be entered for the prize AND I need a card for my niece's baptism this weekend! 

Instead of the burlap, I just used the kraft paper and then added browns, greens, and yellows! Good enough for a baptism card, right? :) She is my it can be. :) TFL!

These photos of my niece are priceless! Let's just say she was not too happy about her costume on her first Halloween! :) I used the photos to tell the story and added the captions at the top of each photo!

I used October Afternoon, American Crafts, and quite a few Elle's Studio tags. I participated in the challenge at ScrapFit to make a banner with two textures. I hope that this qualifies! I used pp pennants, tag pennants, stickers, buttons, and chipboard pennants! TFL!

Catchin' Some Rays

I am all over the place with my photos! I just have so much catching up to do, but all I want to do is scrap my recent photos!

For this LO I used one of the Scrapbook Circle kits from this summer-- I don't know which month! It worked perfectly for these photos of my husband and I and my sister in law at the beach in Okoboji.

The sketch is the current Creative Scrappers sketch! TFL!

Kisses for the Bride

Posting a layout that I was able to fit in this morning before I go to work this afternoon. It snowed today and I was super excited, but now it is all melting! :( Ah well.

Anyways, I used the current Studio Calico kit Sock Hop on this one, plus some Add-on kits. I never know which one because I just throw everything together! The weekly challenge at SC is to use embellishments and color them. I used the SC camera embellishments and colored them with mists! The mists I used were actually October Afternoon Sprinklers. 

I am loving the SC arrow stamps, plus all of their other cool stamps they are coming out with right now! TFL!

Sweet as Candy

I just love this page! :) First off, it is of my little niece Alaina! My sister sent me this picture one night and it made my entire weekend!

I used the current sketch over at Scrap Friends, which is awesome btw! I also participated in the word Challenge at Bird is the Word to use the word "Sweet." I used it as part of my title. And for the final challenge... Using woodgrain on your page from Scrapbook Circle.

This page was so much fun to do and came together so well. I used some of the goodies from the News Flash kit from Scrapbook Circle as well as some new goodies from Studio Calico! TFL!


Cheers to the New Year

For this LO I used last month's Scrapbook Circle kit, News Flash. It has a lot of the goodies from the newest Dear Lizzy kit. TFL!

In Paradise with You

Hello! I was able to finish up this page that I started yesterday afternoon. I am going to quickly post it before I head off to work for the day.

I participated in the Sunday Sketch over at the Studio Calico blog. I loved the sketch and I loved Amy Tan's LO that the sketch was based off of. I didn't really use any of the current SC kits, but I used my favorite line Sketchbook! :) TFL!

Pure Joy & Happiness

Here is a layout I created about my sister. She was 38 weeks at this time and this was one of her baby showers. In the journaling I explained that little did she know that her baby girl would be here in 5 days, not at least 2 weeks like she expected! She was so beautiful pregnant. She looked perfect! I love my sister so much!

I used all Bella Blvd papers on this one with lots of different random embellishments! TFL!
