New Teachers/Scrap Our Stash Challenge

Hello friends!  I have a layout I want to share with you that I did for the second challenge for the month of August for Scrap Our Stash Challenge.  Here is the challenge and my layout:



I rotated the sketch on its side and used one photograph instead of 3.  From each coloum I used 3 different manufacturers (Bazzill Basics, Jillibean Soup and Recollections), Washi Tape, and an Xyron.  I matted the photo and pop dotted it to give it some depth.  The picture is of my son on Orientation Night at his school where he got to meet his two new teachers for fifth grade.  I still can't believe I have a fifth grader!  Thanks for stopping by!

Check This Out!/Scrap Our Stash Challenge

Hello everyone! I have a layout I want to share with you that I did for Scrap Our Stash Challenge.  Here is the challenge and my layout:





Here is a close ups:



I was inspired by the hand.  It reminded me of a stamp I had from Tim Holtz of a hand pointing like the one in the book cover.  I found it! I stamped the hand on a piece of cardstock and cut it out.  I added a pop dot and placed it on the edge of the paper.  I used an arrow paper clip from Freckled Fawn underneath the title pointing to the picture.

Sad Times/Scrap The Boys

Hello everyone!  I have a layout I wanted to share with you that I did Scrap The Boys challenge blog.  The challenge for this month is:  


With my son being 10, he doesn't have too many tantrums or crying, but I do get the mad looks!   I love these types of challenges because it allows me to step outside the box.   Here is my layout:



Actually, this story is quite funny.  I had to go to the mall to pick up something and I went by my favorite clothing store to pay on my credit card bill.  I did not know they were having a sale!  I started shopping.  Of course, my son was not happy at all.  Later I found this picture and text he had taken and sent to my husband.  I found out later he also sent it to my mom! I guess he thought someone was going to rescue him!!  Haha! He hates to go shopping!! 
The supplies I used on this layout are Strathmore, Heidi Swapp, Ranger Ink, Freckled Fawn, 
Fancy Pants Designs, Amy Tangerine, and Echo Park.
