Scrap Our Stash Challenge blog has an interesting challenge this month. The challenge is to create a layout using the sketch below and to use from your stash add your choice of mist, paint, watercolors or gelatos. I love mist and paint but I rarely use it on my layouts. I was happy with this challenge. I chose to use mist on my layout. The supplies I used are Bazzill Basics, Jenni Bowlin, Ranger and Echo Park. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
I know I am behind! My weekends are the only time to scrap and my weekends are filled up right now. If they were not filled up I wouldn't have anything to scrapbook, right? The supplies I used on my layout are Little Yellow Bicycle and Authentique. Here is the sketch from Let's Get Sketchy and my layout. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
I did this layout using Paper Secrets sketch for a sketch challenge on their blog. The twist is to use alpha stickers. I used pictures my husband took of my son at the time trials at Talladega Speedway. As you can tell from the title he thought it was too loud! The supplies I used are American Crafts, Bo Bunny, Adornit and Basic Grey. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
Sketch N Scrap's second challenge this month is a cute sketch. I used pictures I took of my son at his second grade open house at school. The supplies I used are Simple Stories, Jelli Bean Soup and Little Yellow Bicycle. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

The challenge at Scrap Our Stash is a Tic Tac Toe board. Here is the board and my layout:
I chose arrows, chipboard and twine. The stars are chipboard. I used Basic Grey's Persimmon. I love this collection!!!! I have been dying to use it!! I also used Jellibean Soup for part of the title. This is a picture of my son who was picked as the Homecoming Prince for his class. He got a sash (the letters fell off during the parade) and a little trophy!! He was so excited and so was I!! I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!!
For this layout I combined two challenges, Use Your Words and Paper Secrets. First I want to say how much I am going to miss Use Your Words. As a former teacher I thought this was a unique challenge blog. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and hope that one day it will return. (Hint, Hint). For their first challenge this month the word is family. I loved the sketch by Paper Secrets and decided to use it for my layout. Here is the sketch and my layout:
As some of you know I am scrapbooking my wedding. I decided to use a photograph of my family, my mom, sister with me on my wedding day. I used Country Boutique by Fancy Pants. The burlap flower and rhinestones are from my stash. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
For the first challenge for About A Boy, the challenge is "Grunge." Honestly, I wasn't sure about this, but I like the turnout. I found this picture of my son when he was two. I can't believe he use to be this small. I started doodling on this trying different things and this is what I came up with. All of it came from my stash. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
New month means a new sketch at Sketch N Scrap. Here is the sketch and my layout:
I used Carta Bella's Giddy Up. This is such a cute line. I also used Jillibean Soup for the title. These pictures are of my son this past May when we went to visit a friend who has horses. He informed us that he wanted a horse for Christmas or his birthday. It didn't matter which he just wanted a horse! Thankfully he hasn't mentioned it again! I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
