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!

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!
