2 recent layouts

With the Crop & Create event held in my town in April and NSD held a few weeks ago, inspiration has been everywhere. I especially have been excited at the fact that Creative Scrappers is back!!!
And I'm part of the team!! This website was the very reason I started this blog as a way to keep my layouts and cards in one neat place.

The sketches Kristine creates are such an inspiration to me. I also love the deadlines as it obviously motivates me to scrap more... let's face it, it's more of an excuse to make more time to scrap. It's such a fun and creative way to relax.

The first reveal is June 1st!


In the meantime, here are 2 recent layouts:

This was made with a fun cut file from The Cut Shoppe. I used up most of my leftover Crate Paper Neighbourhood collection. Hubby had difficulty with semi-serious selfies on Easter morning. I think it's the bunny ears. 

This layout was made at the Crop & Create event. DS#3 was being extra cute during the daycare photo shoot and this is what I got from it. I just had to scrap this sweet picture. The papers are Echo Park A Boy's Life. 

More to come soon- Happy Scrapping!!

MercyTiara's 27 Day May Challenge!

I'm just so excited (as I've said before) that Creative Scrappers is back! But I'm also excited to be a part of Mercy Tiara's 27 Challenges! It started in February of 2016- Tracy posts a Youtube video with the 27 Day Challenge of the month. Then, we see all sorts of awesomeness from participants from all over the world!

Then, Tracy picks a winner for the challenge, at random. This winner usually gets a ton of encouragement, and maybe some stash prizes, and the chance to pick the next challenge! Just tons of fun- a great place to create!!

If you haven't checked out her amazing, inspirational Youtube videos, check them out here:

The May challenge is to use 3 or more pictures, one of which should be a 4x6 picture!

Here's mine:

This has the pictures taken from the soccer game we saw last summer as part of the Fifa Women's World Cup! The field pictures were a little dark and hard to see, but our selfies documenting the experience turned out great. As you can see, I also kept the tickets from the double header we saw...

This was made with Simple Stories 24/seven. It's such a fun, colourful collection! I had yet to break into it, but I feel it was perfect for these pictures!

Happy Scrapping!

Cards! Cards! Cards!

I've been busy creating a bit more lately, a few layouts here and there, and lots of cards. Here's an update on these cards, I hope you like them...

Here's a Valentine's Day card for my son, a school request. I really don't ever mind an occasion to tell the kids how much I love them.

Here are 2 birthday cards with some leftover Imaginisce papers: 

I've go 2 cards for Administrative Assistant's Day:

Here are 2 sympathy cards made with the I am collection by Simple Stories as well. I can't believe how versatile this lovely collection is!

Well, that's all for now folks! I hope you like them...Happy scrapping!

Back with some Creative Scrappers inspiration!

I'm so glad Creative Scrappers is up and running again! I'm so looking forward to scrapping along and finding some inspiration at this fun, lovely site again. I love seeing everyone's take on the sketch and I just love the sketches!

Here's a loud, rambunctious layout I made with the My Mind's Eye Boy Crazy collection. It's about DS#3 having a ball at his cousin's birthday party last summer. We had had a terrible winter, and this was just about the first time we'd seen enough sunshine to melt the snow and have fun at the park.

I hope you have a great, scrappy week!
