Lovely You for Inspired Blueprints

I am here today featuring a layout that I created with the new sketch up at Inspired Blueprints.  This week I stayed true to the sketch with the exception of the three tags, which I changed out for all the pennants. You should swing by the blog to see what the amazing Design Team created.  Make sure to upload your layout if you play along for a chance at this month’s prize!

Beautiful Smile

I know I have been a bad blogger for the last couple of weeks.  Life got a little crazy and I have been working when I can on some scrap projects, but they can’t be shared yet.  I hope that things will settle down soon, although I will probably have to wait until after spring break here.

This was a really fun layout to put together!  This came together pretty quickly, which is nice.  I hope you enjoy this colorful layout!

Staying Cool in the Pool

There are so many parts of this layout that I love, that I don’t think I can pick a favorite.  The sprayed doilies turned out pretty cute.  I love that even with all the embellishments the photos still stand out.

First Day layout (Inspired Blueprints)

It is reveal day over at Inspired Blueprints again!  I have been really enjoying their fabulous sketches and the design team is producing some really fabulous work!  So make sure you head over to the blog to see what everyone did with this week’s sketch.

I did change the sketch some to work with my pictures and journaling, but that is what I love about sketches…you can use them as they are drawn or you can change them up.  I added an extra picture, larger journal spot and angled the paper strips.

Households Goods

When I knew that we had another big move coming up, I decided that I wanted to document the whole process, even the parts that are crazy busy and let’s face it…not so pretty.  All of our “stuff” arrived here before us and went into storage.  We got lucky that they were able to deliver our belongings on the day we wanted.  It took several hours, but we finally got everything into the house.  This is where all the movers come in real handy.  However, now comes the harder part…getting all the boxes unpacked and finding new homes for everything.  It took us a while to get settled, and as messy as these pictures look, it got a lot worse before it finally looked like a house!

Heart You Layout

I created this layout for the Chinese Whispers game over at Club CK.  Chinese Whispers is a scrapbooking version of the telephone game.  The host sends a scrapbook sketch to person 1.  When person 1 finishes their layout it goes on to person 2.  This continues for all the participants.  At then end of the round the host posts the sketch and everyone’s layouts and you get to see how it has changed.

Below is my layout for the most recent round and I have to say I am really loving how this layout turned out!  I think the playfulness of the layouts goes perfectly with my little goofball in these pictures.

Heart You

Patterned Paper: Echo Park. Washi Tape: Recollections, My Mind’s Eye. Digital Cutter: Silhouette Cameo. Embellishments: Glitz, Ella’s Studio, A Flair for Buttons, Studio Calico, Echo Park, Heidi Swapp Color Shine Spray Ink.

What is Missing for Let’s Capture our Memories

I loved all the white space on this week’s sketch at Let’s Capture our Memories.  I loved the strips at the top and the bottom of the sketch and I thought of how perfect it would be to use some of my washi tape!  I have a slight addiction to it…I admit it.

Heart You layout

I created this layout for the Chinese Whispers game at Club CK.  It is a scrapbooking telephone game.  We are in a group of about 5 players.  The first person gets a layout or sketch and then uses it as inspiration for their layout and sends their project on to the next person.  This is my layout that I created.
