Life Happening- Boy's Rule

Good morning all! Another exciting day today! I'm up on the Boy's Rule blog sharing another project that I did with the Nov/Dec kit. The kit is packed full of great goodies that are quite versatile in what they can be used for. I had fun using lots of the embellishments to create my cluster! So fun!

We had bought an iPad in September and Noah just loves it and is becoming very proficient at using it. In fact, I have to ask him sometimes what to do.  To see more of the kit and my layout, please visit the Boy's Rule blog. They also have a sketch challenge going on, so check that out too!

SOUS- Project Life Reveal

Today's Project Life challenge at SOUS was to use wood grain. I had part of older Authentique collection that had some wood grain paper, so I decided to use that on my spread.  I also had a bunch of stickers that went with the collection, so it worked out perfectly. That's one of the things  I love about doing PL is that I can use up my stash like that. 

Make sure to hop on over to the SOUS blog to see the other creations using wood grain and don't forget to link up your project as well!

Boo- Boy's Rule!

Good morning friends! I'm so excited today! I had an opportunity to be a guest designer over at Boy's Rule. I received the Nov/Dec kit to create with and let me tell you, I'm having a blast with it! The first things I wanted to dig into were the Halloween goodies from the kit as I had a photo of Noah to scrap. Here's what I ended up with....

He was the cutest Hulk ever! I know, I know...the Hulk is supposed to be scary! LOL! I had a great day with him at his Kindergarten Halloween party. So fun!

 I'd like to thank the lovely ladies at Boy's Rule for this opportunity and the awesome kit! I'm looking forward to doing many more layouts with it!

If you get a chance, I'd love for you to come visit the Boy's Rule blog to see my post there and say hi! They have a challenge going on there as well so make sure to enter your project!

So for todays Wedding Layouts, I found a sketch over at Let's Get Sketchy! It's fun doing these albums and looking back at all the photos from the day. So many great memories and fun times! Feels good to finally make a dent in all the wedding scrappy stuff sitting in my house too! The hardest thing so far has been to pick out which pictures to use. It's so hard to narrow them down to just a few. Here's what I came up with for the sketch.

And because I'm doing one for each of the girls, here's the second installment using the same sketch!

I'm continuing on in doing more layouts for the girls albums. It sure helps when hubby is away and I get lots of playing time! LOL!  I found a cute sketch over at Let's Capture Our Memories and thought I'd use it for the photo of my 3 beautiful daughters!

It sure speeds the process to use the same sketch for both albums! It's a snowy day today and perfect for sitting inside and scrapping!

So, my daughter got married 2.5 years ago and I haven't done her album yet! I thought I better get started on some projects for that event. They seem to be growing by the day BTW! I started off doing myself a PL type album because there were so many great photos that I wanted to include.  I'm also doing a 12x12 album for my daughter (the bride). Then I thought, while I'm at it, I should do a mini album for each of my daughter's who were bridesmaids while I had all the stuff out. You should see my scraproom right now! YIKES! I'm on a mission now. LOL! I have to get this all done and cleaned up!  Ok, so here are a couple of layouts using a sketch from My Scraps and More. I did both the layouts similar, one for each album.


I'm so happy that my daughters are all such great friends! They are always doing things together and it makes me so happy to see that! I hope it continues through their lives!

Happiness- SOUS reveal

Hello and welcome to another sketch challenge at SOUS! Today's sketch was designed by Leah and it's a beauty! I chose to alter it as I only had one photo that I wanted to use and used the other side to add some journaling cards in place of a photo! That's the versatility of sketches!

Chantal, Renee and I took a trip to Las Vegas last summer! It was so fun! We did so much shopping I thought my feet would fall off! This photo is of Renee in the Bellagio Gardens. Such a pretty place to take photos! We had such a great time and I hope we can do it again sometime!

Please pop on over to the SOUS blog to enter your layout and see what the designers came up with!

Materials- Authentique Lively Patterned Paper, Detail Stickers, Recollections Brads, Maya Road Journaling Tags, Ranger Archival Ink

Project Life- SOUS

This week's challenge at SOUS was to use Plaid and let me tell you, it was a challenge for me. I searched high and low through all my papers to find a bit of plaid and it was hard to do! But I did it! YAY me! :) This week's layout is about the first week back to school. Noah started kindergarten and Renee is in her last year of Junior High! Grade Nine already! I can't believe it!

Hop on over to the SOUS blog and see how everyone else used Plaid and make sure to enter your project for a chance at winning this months prize!

Witch Hat- SOUS- Die Cut Challenge

Happy Halloween! Today I have a project to share with you that I made for the Die Cut Challenge at SOUS. The challenge is to use any Halloween themed die cut. It was more work than I originally thought to do this hat, but I made it through and I'm super happy with the results! :)

The hat I believe is from Michaels, but I could be mistaken on that. I started off by applying the paper to the form. I used a collection from Bo Bunny called Fright Delight as well as some odds and ends of other papers I had in my stash. I cut strips of paper, wet them slightly and then applied then using mod podge. A little hint if you're going to attempt this project....work in small sections and then dry immediately with a dryer. That way you can press the paper into the creases and around the edges. I found this worked really well. Putting on the strips of paper took a long time, but the effort was well worth it.


I used some dies that I cut out with my Silhouette. This little skeleton key was just perfect to put behind the skull.

I also cut out this spider web and the word Wicked. I put on some stickles to make them pop and then tucked them behind the bow and flower. Another little hint for you....Be careful hot gluing the embellishments on! You don't want to take off a layer of skin like I did! LOL! But again...so worth it! :)

Hope you enjoyed my little project and don't forget to link your die cut entries on the SOUS blog!
