Keeping Cool

Looking at these pictures, I want to jump into that cool water. I am not really keeping cool right now. We've got to keep our electric bill affordable! LOL I used Prima papers I bought a couple of days ago :)

Layouts and cards

I made 2 pages and 2 cards today. The last page was made a couple of days ago. The first pages were made based on sketches from My Sketch World and Pink Sketches. I've been making cards lately because I am participating a month long crop at My Sketch World. I've said this before but say it again. I am not a card maker. But I do have desire to make pretty cards. I think the reason I don't want to go into card making (yet) is that it involves stamping and embossing and that could mean buying punches, heat tools, powders, pens, etc, etc. I'm not ready for that yet. So for now, I'm making very simple cards.

Hi card and Adventure

This page and the card are creatd using the same sketch from Scrappy Times. I made the card first. You can tell I really don't know how to make a pretty card. Anyway, I wasn't too happy with the card I decided to make a layout. I turned the sketch sideways and scrapped :)

Melissa's Giveaway

Melissa is having a giveaway. Why?? Just because! How sweet is that! Check her blog out!

It's getting really hard to keep up with this blog. Just posting the pics of my pages is pretty much it. I don't know how some bloggers write so much so often. These pages are the ones I created
last few days. I am participating a month long crop at My Sketch World but didn't start until late last week and had some catching-up to do. On some of these, I used sketches. Do you notice I used a same sketch on 2 of the layouts here.

Dip & Fun

I love these Basic Grey papers!! I am posting 2 layouts tonight. The first one was done last night using a sketch from 52 Sketches...52 Weeks. I chose these photos for Butterfly Craft's favorite food challenge. My dd and my dh love spinach and artichoke dip. If they haven't tried the dip form a particular restaurant, they would try and sometimes rate The second one was created based on a sketch from Pink Sketches. The photo was taken when we went to see a baseball game last week.

I want all the world to see

I scrapped this photo that my dd took at Disneyland for the current challenge at Scrapping Across the Universe.

Ball Game

My dd's school started today. We didn't do much this Summer and going to a ball game was one of a very few things we did together. To include a memorabilia on a page is the current challenge at BASB. Like every other scrapper, I do save those tickets and brochures. And I used one of them from the game. I have 2 more :)

Happy Friday

I know I am behind posting some layouts here. I am hoping I will catch up with that this weekend. Here is a page I made tonight for Scrapping the Music challenge.

Happy Friday Eve!! I am so glad for that. Here is a layout I just finished. I did this for Cafe Mojo's rub-on challenge. The picture is from our visit to Disneyland. In Toon Town, everything is round and funny looking... makes you feel like you are in a cartoon :)

Ripping is the challenge at Scrapping out Loud this week. I didn't want to just tear a straight line. My first attempt was to tear a paper into shapes of a heart or a big flower. But it was not easy and I messed them up. I also tried to rip a couple of chipboard tags. It didn't turn out the way I wanted it to be. Anyway, this is what I ended up with.


This page was created for Kiddie Lit challenge. The current one is to create a page inspired by the book, Charlotte's Web. I used this photo of my dd and Babe. It is not Wilbur but I saved this photo for this book challenge. I used the word, Terrific as a title. That's the word that animal friends came up with to replace "some pig" on Charlotte's Web. I used So Sketchy sketch as well.

I am tired....

I thought I was going to finish up the page I started last night and post it tonight. There are some layouts I've been wanting to post as well. But I am sooooo tired. We went to a ball game tonight! Hopefully I will be able to catch up with some scrapping tomorrow :)

15 Going On 16

This layout was created inspired by "16 going on 17", a song from "Sound of Music". It is the current challenge on Theatre Love challenges blog. I love that show. Don't you?


I created this page for Candy Shoppe Designs' Warm UP challenge. It's a pre-challenge as they are approaching the debut. This challenge is to create a page using warm colors and the sketch provided.

These photos are from our trip to Florida a few Summers ago. As soon as our dd's school was out, we drove down to Panama Beach, Florida. It was our first time going down there. The top photo was taken from our hotel room and the second one was by the pool at the hotel. It was beautiful!! Supplies: Papers: Basic Grey, Sassafras, Kaisercrafts, Making Memories, flowers: Prima, Maya Road, Journal card: Cosmo Cricket
