Creative Scrappers #136/Kraft it Up/Sketches in Thyme

Tonight I worked on this layout for the Creative Scrappers Challenge.  I finally got to play with the Sassafras Indie Girl papers I've been saving for the right layout.  Here's the challenge sketch.  I love this picture of her despite the hair hanging in her face :D  Also for the Kraft it up December Challenge, because this is one of her Christmas pictures we took at the beach :D  And a 3-Fer with the Sketches in Thyme Open Challenge this week!

Catching Up.

Seeing I was so busy & unable to post much of the month of December, I figured I'd do one big post and show you what I worked on in between the chaos of the Holidays!

I just can't get enough of this picture, I love it.  The white paper in the background I picked up when I was at Pearl last week with Amy.  It's just amazing.  The flower I made also with some handmade paper I got there, painted the pink layers with Glimmer Glam and then the edges with Stickles.

 This is just a girly layout that I was messing around with, not sold on it, but it's cute.

I love this one!  I mean what's not to love about my 2 favorite people and October Afternoon?  

This one is my 2 brothers with me & Julia.. my poor husband was trying to get a good picture of us, and we all kept goofing off.  Paper is Pretty Little Studio & OA wild card.

 My hubby took this picture one day while I was at work for a Mother's Day card he had made for me.  I knew something was up because he had gone through all my stuff to find stuff to make it :D  But I love the picture... She was playing in her room in just her undies.  Background paper is Pretty Little Studio.

I'm still working on this, but taking a break from it... it's driving me nuts!  This is OA Modern Homemaker.

And finally, my attempt at making a rolled paper flower!  haha!  I can't wait to get my hands on the Imaginsce tool the Petal roller... I haven't seen it yet locally I might just have to order it online.  Paper is Pretty Little Studio.

Oh and my Christmas Presents:

 I'm so proud of my hubby this year he did very 
well!  I totally wasn't expecting the Gypsy, nor
would I of ever gotten one for myself.  But I have to say that I love it already!  So now I've found more & more cartridges that I want!!!  Haha!  To ebay I go!

Sketches in Thyme

I wasn't going to post, but then I saw the new sketch up at Sketches in Thyme, and I just got these prints printed, and well I couldn't resist the challenge!  Canvas Circle, My Mind's Eye Papers, JB Bingo card, OA alphabet, Thickers painted green and distressed.  I'm SUPER HAPPY with this layout.  Julia loves dancing on the beach and I snapped these inbetween the poses for her Christmas Card pictures this year.  Enjoy.

I've been BUSY!

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much!  It's been insane of course!  Between getting all my gifts finished and my shopping done and all the baking, phew I still have to work 48+ a week!  I haven't been doing much scrapping, but I did create this frame for my boss who loves to read.  I'm totally loving the whole book pages blooms, I hope she likes it!  I'm working the next 9 days straight, so I probably won't be on much!  But just incase I hope everyone has a wonderful christmas!

Scrap it With a Song (Just the Way You Are)

Hi there!  It's been a long week!  Sorry I haven't posted all week!  I just whipped up this layout tonight while my hubby and I were talking for the Scrap it With a Song challenge this week of the Bruno Mars song "Just the way you are."  I love that song, and I'm always singing it to Julia so it was perfect.  It's pretty much all OA paper except the Bazzill green.  I'm loving the mixed font look lately!  I also purchased the Bazzill In Stitch 8" circle template over at the Scrapbook Cottage and wanted to try it out!  I've got a busy week ahead of me & a lot of Holiday shopping to finish!  eeek!  I hope everyone has a warm wednesday!!  Thanks for all your love and support!!

Sketch Challenges.

It's 2FER-TUESDAY!  The layout above is my take on the sketch below!  It's for Sassy Lil' Sketches & Sketches in Thyme current challenges.  The paper is OA Campfire I picked up today at the Paper Niche & the stickers are also OA Schoolhouse.  As you can tell my little brother has been on my mind a lot lately and there isn't much that I can do for him now, he's got to figure it out on his own.  My daughter reminds me a lot of him at times, they are both way to smart for their own good, stubborn as all and very strong willed.  They were both the same age when they "ran-away" from home and they are both very needy as well.  I just hope that she makes better life choices for herself.

The Sketches in Thyme Mavens have a challenge going where you can enter up to 3 layouts that you followed a sketch on, This one happens to be a Sketch that I came up with one day & then created this layout :D  So I am entering this one too!
