Local Travels

Hello! I am on a roll. My third LO for January. Not much for most people but I had not scrapped for over two months so I am happy to be getting some done. 

I created a layout inspired by the January 15th sketch over at Stuck?! Sketches. I really love those layers and wanted play that up in my LO. 

I was also inspired by the case file #152 at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. It's a fun color palette and worked good with a picture of my boys. For the evidence I used: Polka dots, scallops, triangles, and watercolor background. For my Testimony (on the back), I used a journaling prompt from Paper Wishes. 

Thanks so much for looking!!

Tis the season to be Merry & Giving

Hi all! I am back with my second LO after an over two month scrapbooking hiatus...hope I can keep it going. I know Christmas is over but I did not complete any during my hiatus and this will be the one and only for the season. We were at the mall and my son donated a new bear for the children in the hospital. 

I really wanted to complete the last couple of challenges at Creative Scrappers because, sadly, they will be the last. It is one of the first scrapbooking challenge blogs I 'stalked' and played along with before I started my blog. Kristine Davidson gathered some of the most inspirational scrappers/sketch designers through the years with versatile styles and I will miss seeing the reveals. Anyways, this LO is based on sketch #285. 

I also played along with Scrap Our Stash challenge #22. You have to include an item from your stash for each letter in the word T-W-I-N-E. I used twine, of course, for the T. Wood embellishments for the W. I inked the edges of the papers to make them pop a bit for the letter I. The naughty and nice stickers are for the N (naughty crossed out for being so nice to donate). And lastly, enamel dots for the E. I love their stash challenges, so fun. 

Thanks so much for looking!!

Hello fellow crafty Ladies!! I have not scrapped anything for over two months and I am happy that I was finally able to make something. It's been a rough couple of months with colds, flu, Holidays, and the illness and unexpected passing of my dear Aunt Kathy. It was rough on all of us and especially my Mom and Grandma. My crafty mojo completely disappeared. Hopefully this new year will bring it back.

I made a layout inspired by the wonderful sketch #130 at Sketchabilities. I adore Karan's sketches! It was just the thing to get my creative juices flowing once I decided to even try to scrap.

I was also inspired by the beautiful January mood board over at Scrap around the World. I took my inspiration from the patina type color (so I primarily used teal colors) and the clock and keys. Sometimes you start out with a certain thought on a mood board and that can change once you start looking through your supplies and scrapping. One thing I love about mood boards. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and looking!!!
