This layout was created from an amazing sketch on S.W.A.T.
My journaling is in the form of a little letter to my daughters as she turns two. I think she will cherish things like this as she grows up and becomes a woman herself.
I just love the finished feel girly feel these gemstone flourishes gave the layout.
I would love to have you follow the blog! Just click in the Networked Blogs box so see more pretty creations!
Look how pretty these roses are!! What a great tutorial I followed on S.W.A.T. Basic Training!!
This is the very first layout I have ever done of vintage photographs from my childhood. I thought theses great roses were the perfect compliment to the feel of the photo.
I was amazed at how easily these roses came together. And they give the layout such a rich feel.
Check out S.W.A.T. to check out the tutorial. F.Y.I: I used my Scotch Tape runner instead of liquid glue and it seems to be holding very well as long as you press firmly! .
Lasting Memories Challenged us to use numbers on a layout this week.
Goodbye 214, Hello 1526 is the title of this Layout. I chose the colors from the moving truck, my daughter’s shirt, and our old house numbers.
Some cute little embellies complement the photos perfectly!
My little map of our journey which includes my journaling. I had fun with the twine!
The twin was super easy to work with and I just added a few dots of glue along the trail to keep it in place! Love it!
Today I am sharing my layout for Sketch #16 and My Scraps & More Sketches
I rubbed ink around the photo mat to create the appearance of fading.
I added these pretty little flowers, some washi and gooseberries!
Journaling: The important part!
Pretty little detail stickers
I love these Studio Calico little wooden people! and a Simple Title to finish off a pretty page!
Hi! If you are a regular reader, you will have noticed that I have been participating in a lot of new challenge sites and I think this trend is going to continue!
There are so many challenges out there from color challenges, sketches, page recipes…Keeps it exiting! I find that these challenges really encourage me to get more pages done and they help foster ideas that I may not have come up with on my own! Even more than getting more layouts done, they encourage me to go out of my comfort zone and try some great new techniques and ideas and products! Today’s layout uses the #15 Sketch from My Scraps and More Sketches as inspiration and the Paper Girl’s Challenge is Twine so there are lots of little Twine goodies on this page! I surprised myself with the final product on this layout because it is not really my “style” but I LOVE IT!
Washi Tape is my new Best Friend!!
I hand sewed the buttons on, then wrapped the twine around them!
I love the Chevron pattern on the journaling block. I followed the lines with my writing.
I secured the twine along the top banner by tying it around a straight pin and inserting it into the paper.
And a little twine bow!
Hope this inspires you to get a page done!
Come join the fun at the Paper Girls Challenge
My Scraps and More Sketches
You might be amazed at how inspiring it can be!
Here it is!!! My submission for the very first S.W.A.T Drill! This was definitely out of my comfort zone…The focusing on myself thing is not my strong suit for sure, but here it is!! The color combo is so soothing.
This layout was also created for the Lasting Memories LO Challenge for Resolutions!
Lots of blessings to be thankful for in my life!
Love this cute little felt arrow!
Really…34!! I do not feel like that is possible!!

Sketchabilities has an amazing sketch this week and I wanted to share my layout for the challenge! You may recognize the color scheme from the CSI challenge, I decided to make a sister page because I loved the colors so much with these photos!
With this amazing sketch to work with, this layout came together so easily!
I used sandpaper to create my journaling spot. I was a bit nervous trying this out as the page was almost complete when I decided to try it out, but it came out great!
Thanks Sketchabilities for the great sketch!!
I have been out of the Scrapbook Challenge front for a while and I am working on getting involved again! It is such a great way to motivate and inspire me to get those pages scrapped! One of my favorite challenge sites is CSI:Colorstoriesinspiration. They give you a new case file each week. Basically a recipe and a color scheme and you get to go to town creating! This layout is my creation for the 57th Case file! Why not come play along!
I absolutely fell in love with this color palette and the products I used…Be on the look out next week for some cards inspired by this color scheme!
