Pink Paislee City Sidewalks Give Away on Scrap It Girl

October 24th, 2012

I recently stumbled upon a fun challenge blog/store that happens to be located not far from where I live.  They are hosting a give away with Pink Paislee’s  City Sidewalk collection.  You can see the collection here.

I love this collection all the tags and vintage patterns for the holidays!  I would love to create a framed art for the hallway or to give away as a gift.

You can read about the give away on Scrap it Girl here.

One of my faves in this collection:

A Spooky Layout

October 21st, 2012

It’s almost that time of year again when the kids are excited about their costumes and can’t wait to run up to each houses doorebell and sing “Trick or Treat”!  I think this year will be much more fun now that Makenah is a bit older.  Our family tradition we just started when Makenah was born is dressing up and heading out to a local State Park.  All the campers decorate their sites to be “haunted”.  It is an amazing evening of spooktacular fun!  I had a family pic from last year I have been wanting to scrap.  I found this sketch at Page Maps that I followed as a base.

I also combined this challenge with For the Luv of Art Halloweeen Challenge.

Sketch with MOB

October 12th, 2012

Mother of Boys Scrapbook Kit posted a sketch challenge for the month.   Here is the sketch:

This motivated me to scrap some recent photo’s of Brayden.  It’s hard to believe how much he has grown!  We had a playday late in summer where I took these photo’s.

Fun with Twine

September 30th, 2012

What is this twine stuff….I have it, but have I ever used it?  Ummm nope would be the answer.  Sooooo I so two challenges this month that got my mojo going to use this fun component!  ScrapFIT has a challenge posted here.

The DT posted some great inspiration using twine on their projects.

I also found a fun site called Scrap it Girl and they had a recipe challenge that called for twine.  You had to use the color red, a bird, twine, circles and an arrow.  You can see the challenge here: Although I did not have time to enter it, I loved the challenge.

Here is my first card/project using twine.
