Blog Hop Pic

So to play along in the Summer Fun Blog Hop it is required as the final 
step to take a pic of your scrap area as is right now!!!

Ok... here it is...

So here we have 'some' of my paper behind me.. I buy packs of papers to do up my kits with so those are all in the racks behind my chair... my corner holds my tool bag and a stack of unfinished projects on the table wayyyy over in the corner... moving on to my Cricut cartridges, pens, inks.. rounding the corner for my computer, stack of pictures to try and work on in the Scrapbooking LOAD Challenge for July.. try and work on!! lol My glues, inks, eyelets and such that I was using when I was working on the layout for the Blog Hop and then, of course, the layout for the Blog Hop... I have wayyyy more stuff in my room but this is where I sit... chat... browse the internet... and create... my little piece of heaven and all within the same room as My Adorable One.. he has a 'corner' in the room too!! lol 
Can't wait to see what everyone has in there little space... :) 


Summer Fun Blog Hop

So here is the sketch we played with by Mich:

Here is what I did with the sketch:
(bad pic will try and get a better one up)

This is our beautiful Grandson Preston aka Yummy!!! If you have seen my blog before you now that he is what I scrapbook most.. he is gorgeous... we are just crazy about this little guy...!! 
I didn't use tags.. on the far right side of the layout I have used 'magic mesh' (old school goodies) I also used alot of large eyelets ( I have a boxes filled with them so I used them alot) I love using eyelets because they can fill up those spaces that need a bit more... I have also used tire track washi tape. Did the dictionary description of Boy because it just fit with the layout, and I had an old Deluxe Cut laser cut laying around. And finished!! 
I love playing with Mich's sketches... she is so talented and creative. Sometimes she really makes me think out of the box trying to work with her sketches and I love that!! I also love how the Design Team is so inspired by them.. and all so differently!!

I have to say that this Blog Hop has amazing girls playing along... each and everyone of them has been on the Design Team at one point or another and I love that they were so willing to jump in and play along again... So have fun jumping to the next blog Chriss's and make sure that you start and end at Let's Scrap Sketches

Backyard Adventure

Wow... well it has been a bit since I have had the time to play along with the sketches but I did manage it this weekend and just in time for this sketch reveal from Let's Scrap Sketches!!

So here is the sketch I used:

awesome sketch by Mich!!!

and here is what I came up with... 

being I have not been scrapbooking much it took me all day to get this layout done... all day.. can you believe that!!! Of course I HAD to use some Yummy pics!! This poor baby is not even 4 yrs old and I am soooooooo behind in getting his pics scrapbooked... mind you I have stacks of layouts done.. some in albums and most not.. stacks of them and I have equal stacks of pics waiting for me to get to them... good thing I only have 1 Grandson or I would be in big trouble!!!

Thanks for looking at my blog and I hope to be adding more to it very very soon...

Let's Scrap Sketches 8-15-15

It's me again!! I don't get to scrapbook near as much as I would like too but I did
manage to get this double page layout done with the 8-15-15 sketch at Let's Scrap Sketches!!
You should check out the blog and play along with us!!! ;0) 

So here is the great sketch by Mich that I played with:

and here is what I did with it:

Raymond and Makayla took Yummy to the ocean for the first time... Fort Bragg is the place to go for our These are a few of the pics that Raym took of there trip and I thought this sketch was just perfect... I even have a bit of hidden journaling behind one of his pics. 

I used an old line of paper I had here from when we had our scrap store and some embelli's that I have had 'forever'.... dusted it with some inks and here it is!!! Great pics of a great trip... ;0)

Thanks for looking

Guest Designer on Sketchy Boards Blog

Hey everyone.... I barely have time to play along with my own challenge blogs but I was recently asked to be Guest Designer for August on Sketchy Boards Challenge Blog by Heidi and how could I say no!! 
So she zapped me the sketch and color inspiration... my first thought when I saw it was... are you kidding me??? Obviously she doesn't 'know' me... lol Purple and white?? Well it could have been worse.. it could have been Pink!! lol So out of my comfort zone I started off with this challenge.. ;0) 

So here is the sketch and the color inspiration I was given:

Ok.. so then I start thinking of what pics I want to play with for this color inspiration.... thinking.. I'm thinking... lol  So I thought of one of the newest members of our family and one that I see alot of pics of on facebook.... so I go and swipe pics that my cousin Jammie took of her little niece Afton. Perfect... now I am inspired to get this going!! I zap the pics off to Walgreens and as soon as my daycare kids are gone I am in the car to pick them up and then my scrapbooking process begins.. ;0) Because, YES sometimes it is a process!! So this is what I came up with for this sketch challenge:

I choose to change the pics from circles on the sketch to 4x4's and one 4x3.. staggering a bit. The background I chose to take my white cardstock and ink it with Tim Holtz distress ink Dusty Concord and splashed with some Glimmer Mist (which I have tons of still!!). I dug thru my scraps and found the papers I wanted to use and pulled out some flowers and finished it off with some Lilac Liquid Pearls in my stash.... I'm happy with the way it turned out... 

I hope you enjoyed checking this out and hopefully you have the time to play along with Heidi's challenge blog Sketchy Boards Challenge Blog

Thanks for looking,

Here is my work with the sketch:

I know... of course they are Yummy pics!!! I have stacks and stacks of Yummy pics to scrapbook... I'm thinking I haven't had alot going on other than this gorgeous lil grandson of mine.. not a hardship though... pure joy!! 

We take him to the fair every summer... this was August 2013 and he was so intent on eating his cookies while he was taking in all the sites and sounds of the fair... it was just too cute for me not to take alot of pics of... ;0) What a face!!!!

Here is the sketch I worked with designed by our ohhh sooo talented Michelle van Wyk

Great sketch right?? Oh the possibilities with this one... single page... double page... flip it... turn it... ohhhh I will be using this one over and over again I'm sure...
