Playtime fun 

 I created this layout for the Scrap That February "With Love" Sketch Challenge.
My inspiration was the sweet picture of my baby girl peeking out from under her blankie. I just love the soft greens and pinks.  Once again G45 was my go to paper selection.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  Wish me luck on the challenge!

Just  entered the Child's Play Challenge using doilies.

I also entered this layout into S.W.A.T. Sketchy Saturday challenge.

Happy Day

Oh what a happy day this was!  My beautiful daughter wed her soul mate last summer.  Since it took place so close to the 4th of July I thought this page was perfect.  Pin wheels, bicycle and lace.  I entered this page on the Stuck on U Sketches January 18th challenge. I won the challenge!!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.

 This was such a fun lay out to make.  I cut a section of the boarder in strips and then rolled them up to reveal more of the sticker.
 Graphic 45 makes such fun papers.  They are so versatile.

Hubby works for telephone company and loves to have his picture taken in whatever phone booth we happen upon.  This one we found on one of our trips to Ireland.  I entered this layout in a Funtoolas challenge  I won this challenge!!!

I have also entered ODD into

Having been sick with Strep throat this past week my spirits were lifted after finding out I placed in the top three layouts at Stuck on U sketches!  I hope to start on a new layout soon.  Thanks for stopping by today!

#1 Christmas

# 1 Christmas

 My daughter and her husband's first Christmas together.  Just like the peppermint candy lo they are filled with sweetness.  I thought this layout would be a wonderful candidate for C'est Magnifique January challenge. 

Dear Santa, I can explain...

Thanks for taking a peek at my entry for January's challenge with Scrap That and Stuck on U Sketches.   This page was put together using leftover papers and die cuts from the past years.  So nice to finally put them to good use.  It's hard to believe this photo of my sister and me was taken nearly ten years ago!  I am putting together a special scrapbook filled with special memories taken throughout the years. 
Current Challenge SketchThis is the Stuck on you sketch.  I felt my layout worked well for both of these sketches.

New Age Cowboy

My newest entry for OUAS and Scrap for Help!  New Age Cowboy.  What a better way to begin the new year than with a new age! I had such fun putting this page together.  We have lived in Texas now for 13 years and simply love it!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. 

I tied the journaling to the cowboy lasso and tucked it between the layers.

The cowboys that captured these sister's hearts.

Baby's 1st Christmas

Baby's 1st Christmas

I pulled this page together using "My Creative Sketches" January challenge page design.  I have to say I had such fun creating this page.  I decided on a simple white back ground to give the vivid Graphic 45 Nutcracker Suite paper collection top billing.  Aren't they gorgeous!  I am also entering this page into Scrape It Girls January Challenge of “BLING, GLITTER, SHINE, & SPARKLES” and c'est magnifique  January Challenge.  Wish me luck!

The first year in a child's life starts off with a fresh clean slate.  The white back ground projects the innocents and the colorful papers and embellishments represent all the wonders we absorb in life.  
Thanks for dropping by.  I hope to have a new page done soon.
