There she was holding a black cat. We never found out where she came from but she was hanging around our house. We had a cat then so we fed her as well. We named her Midnight. Those 2 cats became good friends. After staying around for quite some time, she disappeared though.... I made this page based on a sketch from 52 Sketches...52 Weeks.

Ball Park

This is a photo taken right outside the gate as we were leaving the ball park. I created this page using the current sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. I turned the sketch sideways though. It turned out to be a pretty simple page.

Since I was working on "go mini" challenge for BASB, my initial plan was to decorate just a little around the photo. But after masking on one side was done, I desided to add to the other side and this is what I ended up with.

Aren't They The Cutest ?

I was finally able to scrap these photos. I don't have them in bigger sizes and wasn't sure how I wanted to scrap them. Anyway, I made this page for the current challenge at Scrapping Out Loud. It's about motif. I used the cutouts from a couple of patterned papers. I used the word of the week "cutest" and the sketch of the week as well. Since they provide a sketch and a word, it makes it so much easier for me to start working on it. These are the pics of my dd and my niece. They are now 15!

Fun Day

I had this layout done on Sunday. This was created based on a sketch from Pink Sketches. I first thought of a different title. But I decided to use the letters from a piece of scrap paper that had the letters printed randomly. And this is what I came up with them.

It's a Sun Shiny Day.

Here is a page I just finished. This was created for the latest challenge at The Studio. It is a twice-a-month challenge blog I recently discovered. September 16th challenge is to use a non-traditional shape, to have a summer theme, and to include a long title. My dd used to love picking up things that belonged outside! especially in summertime :)

I found out about this fantastic challenge blog called ScrapFit. They call challenges workouts!! Just what I need. Anyway, the challenge #4 is to use non-people photos and some Cosmo Cricket items and I decided to play along. I took these pics form the freeway and they remind me of those days I used to work there. This is also a loose interpretation of a sketch from 52 Sketches...52 Weeks.

Sketchy Thursdays

Now until 9/24, they are having lots of giveaways. Today's is a fantastic Unity Stamp set !! Here is the link to the post. I am going to work on this week's sketch this weekend.

Hey, Donkey !

I created this page last night using a sketch from wij DUS. This picture was taken at Universal Studio. We had such a fun-filled day there :)

I Believe

The current challenge at Scrapping out Loud is to use hand-made flowers and I made them with papers. The word of the week is "positive" and when I saw it, I thought of the page I was going to make for Scrapping the Music. The song of the week is "We are the World" and the phrase I was getting inspired and the word "positive" connected together in my head. Here is the result. I used Scrapping out Loud's sketch of the week as well.

Some Pages

I am posting the layouts I created the last week of August. I hadn't had chance to post them until tonight.

Life is an adventure.

I created this page for the current challenge at Scrapping Out Loud. It is to use a quote for the title and to use only one part of speech. When I saw the challenge along with the word of the week being adventure, this quote came to my mind and I knew I was going to play along. I chose verbs to use and also lifted Rachel's pretty layout.


When I saw this die-cut paper pad by K & Co. at Michaels yesterday, I had to grab it. Then as soon as I got home, I used a paper from the pad right away. I created this page using a sketch from sketchy thursdays. I've been following Diana's weekly sketch and she just launched a new challenge blog. I love her sketches and I am looking forward to the new sketch this Thursday.

Sweet Girl

I haven't completed as many layouts as I wanted to this past week. Maybe I was so tired by the time I started scrapting at night. I had a busy week at work. Anyway I just finished this one for Scrapping out Loud. I started this one 3 days ago. This week's challenge was to use seasonal papers. I used silver winter paper and red valentine paper on this page. I also used their word of the week and the sketch of the week :)

Sponge Bob & Sal & Mookie's

As I am posting these pages, I realize I haven't posted a couple of pages I made last week. The second page here is a pizza joint and I have scrapped the photos from that lunch. The first page with Sponge Bob is from our visit to Universal Studios in 2005. These pages are based on the sketches from 52 Sketches...52 Weeks and Pink Sketch.
