Deep Freeze

Hi Everyone! I have a layout up on the SOUS blog today done with the Jan. 16th sketch. We went to the Deep Freeze Festival this year as Renee was performing. What a fun time we had there. There was tons of entertainment, ice and snow sculptures, street performers, warm bonfires burning, music, dancing, sports of all kinds, food galore and of course, lot's of snow, wind and cold! LOL!

Renee and Chantal enjoyed a fun little treat of maple syrup rolled on a stick in the snow. ( Don't worry, they use cleanly made snow :)) Renee also enjoyed  having her photo taken with none other than Anna and Elsa who of course made an appearance at the Festival.

This layout is actually created in two parts. The first part was the background on the patterned paper.

The next part was done on a transparency that I found in my stash and placed on top of the background!
 I realized afterwards that I probably should have put some white paper down on my kitchen floor before taking the photo! LOL! Oh well! You get the picture!
Another fun little thing I did was alter the snowman sticker to match my layout! He came from an old collection of Basic Grey, so was in muted reds, greens and brown. Some markers quickly fixed that issue! :)
That's it for today! Hop on over to SOUS to see the sketch and take part in the challenge if you'd like!

I Will Love You Always- SOUS

I  can't believe it's already the day before Christmas! Where has December gone? I've been continuing on with my wedding albums and thought I'd use the SOUS sketch to do another layout for my reveal day!

Using some creative license, I've done doilies for the two smaller circles in the sketch and just kept one spot for a photo. I'm making pretty good progress on these albums, but still have a long way to go! Don't be surprised if you see more wedding layouts on my blog! LOL!

I know you're all prepared for Christmas, so you have tons of time to enter the sketch challenge at SOUS. :) Head on over to the blog and link up on the side bar!

First Day of School- Boy's Rule

Another wonderful December day and I'm up on the Boy's Rule blog again with a layout to share with you all!

Noah started Kindergarten this last September and he was so excited to go for his first day. I used an assortment of different papers from the Nov/Dec kit for this layout and just layered them on. I thought it would be fun to do a library pocket on this page as it's kind of school themed. Inside, I included some hidden journaling about his first day. If you get a chance come check out my post over at Boy's Rule. They have a sketch challenge going on, so make sure to enter your layout!

Always- SOUS- Sketch reveal

Good morning! Today at SOUS we have a wonderful sketch done by Nanne! When I first saw it, I immediately thought of my daughter's wedding photos ( which by the way I haven't scrapped yet). In my defense though, she only got married 2.5 years ago, so I"m not that far behind! LOL! Anyways, I thought I'd better get my act in gear and start on the albums.


 I'm going to be on a mad frenzy to get all the wedding photos scrapped because right now, my whole room is a gigantic mess. I have piles of stuff all over the table and floors, so I have some motivation here!

We'd love to see your creations using this week's sketch, so make sure to link it up on the SOUS blog!

Winter- Boy's Rule

I'm up again today on the Boy's Rule blog with another another layout to share! For this layout I used a sketch done by Lynn! You'll have to pop by the blog to see her sketch, but here is the layout I did with it!

Noah wanted to play outside, so of course I was out too snapping pictures. He had such fun and got SO wet! LOL! I used the winter papers from Carta Bella that were in the Nov/Dec kit. Boy's Rule has a sketch challenge going on, so make sure to pop on by and enter your layouts!

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!
