Seaside

We've got a mini crop going on over at Creative Inspiration. One of this month's themes is vacations which is what my project is about. My challenge is to use vacation photos along with something unusual on your project. I've used some real seashells I found on the beach along with some netting from lemons and a ham.


Please stop by Creative Inspiration to check out our mini crop. There are several different themes and lots of fun challenges and of course a prize. You have all week to play along. Hope to see you there!

Cheerleading Competition

I've got a layout up at the Sketches In Thyme Blog today. The sketch we're working with this week was so much fun!


And here's the sketch we had to work with


I loved working with this sketch! It's so much fun working with lots of layers like on this sketch. I always dig into my scraps when I need layers and it always makes me happy to use up so many of them like I did here. 

I hope you'll stop by the blog and see all the different takes on this weeks sketch by the DT. And of course I hope you'll play along with our sketches!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a scrappy day!

So Grateful For Fall Fun With The Family

I'm up on the ScraPerfect Blog today with a cute fall page that doesn't use the regular fall colors. I love fall and all the seasonal colors but decided to pull the colors out of the photo for this page using the different shades of pink. But of course I still had to add in a little bit of orange!


I played around with some new watercolors for the background and couldn't believe how they matched the flowers in the photo so well. Then I just punched some hexagons and placed them around the photo and popped several of them up for dimension. The letters were  cut with my Cricut and I used some of the Best Glue Ever to adhere them to the page. I just love how the glue stays tacky long enough for you to place the letters exactly where you want them.


I also used some of the Best Glue Ever to attach some old wooden dot embellishments that I've had in my stash for many years. They are so old that the sticky backs of them don't really stick to anything anymore. So Best Glue Ever to the rescue!


This was a quick and easy page but I really had fun with it!
