New Bike!

Today's post is my take on the fabulous sketch found at Sketches: Creatively Yours today. You'll note that the "star" of the layout is *not* one of my regular kids, but is my "adopted" granddaughter who just turned 2. She's a cutie!

Isn't it nice? What a versatile sketch.. You should check out what the other gals did with it on it at the S:CY blog today. Some fabulous work Have a Scrap Happy day!

Super stoked and inspired! I guessed the date of one of my SSZ scrap-buddy's grandson's birth and she sent me this!

Thanks Lorraine! You are way too generous but I LOVE it!  Look forward to seeing some of this gorgeous product on future projects!

Have a scrap happy day!

Good morning all. It's been a busy week around here. This was supposed to be my week "off" but it hasn't turned out that way! I broke my sewing machine on Monday (no, I didn't take a photo) and pulled it apart into a million pieces (no I didn't take a photo). Yesterday I was super-woman and put it all back together! The only piece I had left over was a little spring, but I figured who needed it anyway? LOL

Yesterday I sewed two squares for a quilt project I'm participating in with some dear friends in the States. Today I'm mailing the squares off to be joined to the others. I'll show you the squares another day. Today I'm super excited to show you this layout. It's one of the ones I worked on over the weekend.

We got the photo from her dad's dropbox folder. In the series, she was jumping with great gusto on her bed but in this photo, she seems to pause to contemplate her next move (or so we presume). We thought it was a fabulous shot that just had to be scrapped! The photo is totally untouched.. her cheeks really were that red!


This layout was done in response to a layout tag - a favourite game of mine - over at ScrapShotz. Come check my team's results!

Have a scrap happy day!

39 Weeks

Yesterday was National Scrapbooking Day and I celebrated by playing along with some challenges over at Sisterhood of Scrap. I managed to get two layouts done and a gallery game and am chugging my way through a word scramble. They are tough!! 

Here's one of the layouts I worked on. It was a sketch challenge at SOS and I was able to use a photo that I've wanted scrapped for Hugo's album for at least a year now. This is my daughter-in-law with that baby inside of her at about this time last year. It's hard to believe he'll be a year old this month!! Where has the time gone!

I enjoyed being able to use some of the Sping-y Little Yellow Bicycle "Elizabeth Park" paper that I've been hoarding since LAST Spring was a treat! It also worked for a challenge at ScrapShotz this month "All About Mom" 

I hope you enjoy it! Have a Scrap-Happy day. :-)

I'll Show You..

Well my friends, does it seem like FOREVER since I last posted?? It sure does to me! I have had a whole bunch of adventures since last we chatted. My hubby and I drove out to Saskatchewan for our daughter's college graduation. Along the way, we had many many unexpected adventures. Those stories are for another day though. I'm excited to show you what I just did...

Today I want to share with you, this fabulous sketch from Sketches: Creatively Yours. The simplicity really struck me and just called for this wonderful "Lego" paper I received from Tina to work with. I just love how it all turned out!  Why not give it a try. Let me know if you do!

I would love to show you the mess that I'm working in.. but I'm not going to! I'll let you continue to think that my beautiful scrap room is finished and things are all put away... it's not true! I carved out a small 2x2 piece of desk to work on this! I think I have to do more cleaning before I can create much more. Wish me luck!

Tomorrow is National Scrapbooking Day. Where will you be? I'll be checking in with Sisterhood of Scrap and also with ScrapShotz to see if they are going to leave me a challenge or two to do. :-)

Have a Scrap Happy Day!
