Thankful for You

These next two layouts aren't necessarily designed to be a two page layout, but they are designed to coordinate and go next to each other. They have photos from a wedding my husband and I were at a couple of months ago. My dress and his tie were this gorgeous shade of teal.

I used Sue Cummings (Oscraps) and EHStudios (MScraps) collab kit, Gratitude, available here.

I hope you like it!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you're having a wonderful day :) I have had a very full day and it's not even over yet!
I once again participated in the Manchester Road Race. Record attendance this year and it was a mad house. It was cold and a good hard run, but it still feels great to have done it. Lots of food and family afterward and lots of good times :)

This is us last Thanksgiving in 2009. This year we have two more because hubbie is home from his deployment and Johnny has married now.

I used the Sketch from the October Sketch Challenge at Sugar Hill Co., Danielle Young's collab kit, A New Day, from Oscraps and Danielle Young's Giving Thanks CU Vectors from Sugar Hill Co.

I hope you like it!

Little Shop of Sketches - Sketch #75

Time for another round of inspiration from Little Shop of Sketches!

Sketch #75 was provided by yours truly. I based it off of a layout that I had seen months ago ... I saved the link in my favorites, but the link is now broken, so I can't properly credit the original. However, it is still a wonderful layout!

Here is my take on it:
I used a retired kit, Freckles and Giggles, from Kim DeSmet (formerly of Oscraps)

So head on over to Little Shop of Sketches to see the other girls' layouts (which are just lovely) and enter for our prize!!!

I hope you like it!

Lego Man

My son, Justin, goes through phases. When he was a baby, he liked blocks. When he was a toddler, he liked trucks. When he was a little older, he graduated to Cars movie items. A little older than that and his thing was Hot Wheels cars. These phases were long and persistent. When he likes something ... he really likes it. Now, it's legos. It's been legos for the past six months. I don't know why I was surprised ...

I used Sue Cummings and Taylor Made Designs collab This and That as well as an add-on from TMD's Composure kit and the paper and label from a Sue Cummings collab.

I hope you like it!

Back to School

School started again a few months ago and the kids were very excited. The good news ... they still are :)

I used Danielle Young's School Chips (owl, ruler, apple, pencil), Danielle Young's A New Day collab with Aja Abney (papers, swirls) and Danielle Young's Creative Chick kit (stars)
Kate Teague freebie from 2 Peas in a Bucket (title element and school days background patterned paper)

I hope you like it!

Speed Scrap - November

Another Speed Scrap over at Sugar Hill Co. It's amazing how frustrating they are. You have no idea if you've picked a good photo or the right kit. I've actually switched in the middle of it. What if the kit you picked doesn't have the elements they call for? What if the photo just doesn't fit the theme? And the time? What if the kids need you? Or your husband needs you? Or you're just tired? Well ... it may be frustrating, but it's also a lot of fun. You end up with a layout! Yay! A layout is done!!! And it's usually not bad. You take the instructions and inspiration and make them you're own. I've been very pleased with the results so far ... so I did it again last Saturday!

Here's my layout:
Made using the Sweet Memories collab from SHCo. I've found it's helpful to use a HUGE kit when doing these things ...

I hope you like it!

Little Shop of Sketches - Sketch #74

Time for another wonderful sketch from Little Shop of Sketches!

What a fun sketch for those multiple photo layouts! I was very excited to see it!

Here's mine:
This is my sister and brother-in-law weeks away from their two-year wedding anniversary. The goofballs are very much in love!

I used a mish-mash of products - Danielle Young (background paper, always word strip and sequin heart from Game of Love, metal swirl from SHCo collab, staple)
Paislee Press (today word art, moments word art and sequin camera)
Sue Cummings and EHStudios gratitude collab (text matte)
Kitty Designs (trail of hearts)
Ashalee Wall (forever word art)
Oscraps O Boy collab (frames)

The girls did an excellent job - go over to the Little Shop of Sketches blog to check out their layouts!

And ... be sure to check back in a couple weeks. We're going to have a monochromatic challenge! Woohoo!

I hope you like it!
