Reveal day!!!!

It's reveal day again at Let's Capture Our Memories! Today's sketch is by Shirley Mijares Mascarina. I made a beach layout as it's still very much summer in my head. Here in my neck of the woods, we have a week before school starts and we're still making the most of it, as much as we can. I just love beach time- all that exploring and treasures... so relaxing!

This was made with Fancy Pants Nautical collection. There are a few corrugated stars from Jillibean Soup. This one was pretty simple and straight forward. Thanks for looking!

And here's my interpretation:

3 posts in one week!!

It's sketch reveal day at Let's Capture Our Memories- sketch 130! And I love it! It's perfect to use up scraps, however, I broke into Echo Park's Jack collection- it seemed perfect for this cute candid shot of DS#3 playing in the court. The sketch is by Shirley Mijares Mascarina.

Here's my take- 

I used some Memento ink and Mr. Huey's ink on the background. Everything is by Echo Park except the buttons (stash) and the twine (Maya Road). I flipped the journaling tag as I wasn't completely in love with the horse in the corner...

And voilĂ ! Completed layout! TFL!

Part 2 of catching up...

Hi everyone,

My last post was full of layouts I'd neglected to add to this list... Here are a few more- hope you like them...

These are all made for Let's Capture Our Memories DT. Go check them out for some additional inspiration!

This is a cool, versatile sketch by Nicole Nowosad- It screamed simplicity and I've had a photo just waiting for the perfect sketch since last year... 

This is DS#2 goofing off on the slide at the local orchard, after some pumpkin picking. I love this picture and have been waiting for the perfect papers too. These are Studio Calico neutrals, they just complement the photo colors... I've got a Jillibean Soup placemat and a few pieces of Becky Higgins chipboard as well as a rare Prima flower on there..

Another sketch and layout:

This one is by Lisa Rukin Swift, so full and detailed...

It just begged for the collection of selfies we've had going with the boys during vacation... We've had some good times camping, in the amusement park, at the beach...
And I just love this collection by Simple Stories. I am. I am so many things, but above all, I'm a wife and Mom to 3 wonderful boys...

With all the adult colouring books going around, I thought it would be funny/nice to actually try doodling on a layout...I rather like the effect...

 Thanks for taking a peek, your comments are appreciated...

I cannot believe how long it's actually been since I've posted some layouts here... Talk about neglect... I'll get started right away, but be warned, this may be a layout heavy post...:)

I've got a lot of catching up to do.

I have been scrapping regularly as a member of the Let's Capture Our Memories design team and I've had a few more time consuming projects on the side, but more on that later.

Here's is a layout done for Mother's Day- seems so far away... It's a lovely sketch by Shirley Mascarina. It's great for all those vertical photos we have lying around.

Here's my take on it-

I used almost every last bit of Fancy Pants Design The Good Life collection. It's just so beautiful! I may have a bit leftover for a few cards, that's it!

"Nothing pleases me more than spending time with my boys, and the fact that Grammy and Grampy are joining us more and more, that's the cherry on top of the sundae!"

Next up is reveal 124:

Another great sketch!

And here's my take on it:

I was actually "soup-spotted" on this one! Yet another collection I've decimated- Macho Nacho soup! There's barely anything left for a card...

Another layout done for LCOM is this one with Lynn Lefebvre's sketch:

And this is my interpretation, done with loads of Simple Stories I (heart) Summer! It's all about a camping trip in 2014 in NH, at a campground with a huge pirate ship in the pool! Amazingly fun!

The next one is a fall layout, made with that fabulous Sweater Weather by Simple Stories.

The sketch is by Lynn Lefebvre.

It's about a great day trip to the nearby National Park- I love getting pics of all my boys together!

Well, that's it for now, more to come soon! Thanks for looking!
