Guest Designer with My Scraps and More Sketches

Hello and welcome to my blog this week. Today I am happy to announce that I'm am a guest designer for "My Scraps and More Sketches" this week. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!!

Here is the sketch:

My husband and 4 year old son.
I have to admit that I struggled a little bit with this layout. Finding the right pics and the right paper didn't come easily this time around. This layout sat on my desk for a week (a rare thing for me these days) before I was able to finish it. All because I struggled.

Well, I hope you are inspired anyway! Thanks for stopping by today.

Trouble with A Capital T

Welcome back!! Today I have a fun boy LO to share with you as part of SOUS die cut challenge this Friday.  The challenge is a die cut in the form of "word art". For me, I chose to make a title from Miss Kate Cuttables.

In this photo my son is 2 1/2 years old. Don't you think that title is perfect with his overly mischievous grin? This is one of those photos that I printed years ago and am just now getting around to scrapping. Again, thank you SOUS for getting me to think outside the box!

I loosely followed this sketch from Pinterest.

Thanks for stopping by today. Now go see what the rest of our wonderful team has put together for today's challenge.

Disney's Animal Kingdom

… and a Stuck on U Sketch.

Hello and welcome to my blog! This Friday over at SOUS is a new sketch reveal. I LOVED it. I hope you'll join us this week and showcase your interpretation of the awesome sketch by Leah Schaeffer.

This sketch gave me an opportunity to scrap about part of my family's Disney trip in 2010. I personally find scrapping about trips overwhelming.!

This particular LO features our last full day in Florida in which we went to Disney's Animal Kingdom. Even at the end of September it was so hot!! But it was not crowded which was definitely a bonus.

"We went to Disney World right before Joscelin's 4th birthday. Everyday we went somewhere exciting, and everyday we had one tired little boy. It was a wonderful week and looking forward to going back."

I'm thoroughly enjoying my tiny flag punches.

SOUS: Die Cut Challenge - House

New house. New yard. New day.

Hello and welcome to this week's die cut challenge with Stuck on U Sketches.  This week's die cut is to make a "house".

This challenge had me digging up photos I took a couple years ago right after we moved into our new home. This is also the time period in which I was just starting my photography journey. I laugh and cringe at the same time looking at these photos. Gotta start somewhere, right?

I chose to follow this sketch from Pinterest and I'm pretty sure I've used it before. Love all that negative space! The patterned papers are an old favorite too, Bo Bunny's Ad Lib Collection!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Now head on over to SOUS and join us for this week's challenge.

Photos are from April, 2012

The house is from Silhouette Studio. Love the simplicity of it.
