Catching Up on December Daily

Well the weekend flew by as always and it is back to work this morning. I am just popping in quickly to share a December Daily page from 2016.


A project life type card to finish off a Christmas morning page.

I was inspired by the sketch from Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style sketch #87.


Here is my card with the rest of the page showing my husband with his favourtie gift!!! LOL!!!


I just love these little sketches...they get me moving in the right direction!!!

Happy Sunday morning everyone! Time for the latest Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team Reveal. We are continuing with the theme of Around The House for October. Today's challenge is to use a Book Page or Sheet Music.

Here is my layout...


Well the title says it all...this was the Final Fitting day. And everything was perfect for my Girlie. It was such a pleasure to share these moments with her. XO

I used dictionary pages for my part of the challenge. I was picky on which pages I used. On the right side the frame is around the word dress and on the left side the word bride is highlighted.

Memories - Guest Designing with Scrapping4Fun Challenges

I am happy to share with you today that I have been asked to Guest Design with Scrapping4Fun Challenges. Challenge 101 is Autumn Colours.

Here is my layout....


Last fall we went on an adventure to Tiffany Falls and to get pictures taken for our anniversary. Our Grandson didn't understand why he couldn't be in the photos, so he managed to sneak into a couple. Isn't he adorable?

Here are some closeups...


I painted a couple of colours on the chipboard title to match my layout. Popping up the heart adds dimension.


I added a cluster of flowers and leaves.

Here is the inspiration photo from Scrapping4Fun Challenge 101. Be sure to play along and check out the design teams creations. 


Thank you Scrapping4Fun for inviting me to Guest Design.

I was also inspired by the following challenges:
Challenge Yourself - Challenge #46 - Fall Mood Board

AWESOME -Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Good Morning everyone and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in Canada.

It is time for the latest Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team Reveal. For the month of October our theme is "Around The House" and today's challenge is - Use Children's Artwork or Journaling (or be inspired by a child's reading book).

I was very excited when I saw this challenge as I knew exactly what I was going to use for my layout.


A few years ago my Grandson drew this map of the Burford Fair when we had returned from the fair. It is a masterpiece as he drew it out perfectly. I have been saving it for years, for just the right project.

Here are some closeups....


I layered up under the photo with primary colour cardstock to match his artwork.



I created a little flap to hold a journal tag and to also maintain the integrity of his artwork.
I mounted the layout on a piece of blue cardstock.

Be sure to stop by the Lasting Memories Blog to check out the rest of the team's creations. We would love to see how this challenge inspires you.

Two Great Sketches = One Awesome Double Layout

Happy Hump Day everyone...we are half way through the work week...Woo Hoo! I for one cannot wait until Friday.
For today, I would like to share with you how Two Great Sketches = One Awesome Double Layout!!!
Here we go...


Our youngest Grandson knew he wanted to try climbing the rock wall as soon as he saw it. And to the top he went with very little coaxing!!!

Here are some closeups...



I was inspired by the Clique Kits Sketch for September.


And now for the second sketch...


Here he is on the way down....zip line style!!!

And some closeups....



For side two, I was inspired by Leslie's amazing sketch from 


Put them together....


I loved how the two sketches had linear parts to their design. Perfect for my arrow paper one side to show Up and the other side Down.

And there you have it...an Awesome Double Layout!

Happy - Creative Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge

It is another hot September day...summer is hanging on just wonderfully! The weather man says we will have these above average temperatures for the rest of the week...Woo Hoo!!!

I have a special layout to share with you today...


I had the privilege to compete for the summer issue of Creative Scrapbooker and to top that, I got the cover. This photo is from the first time that we saw it on a store shelf. My husband was a sweetie and took my picture. I was so very HAPPY!!!

Here are some closeups...




I wanted to use similar papers and colouring in my layout as I used on the cover layout, so I broke open my stash of Jillibean Soup papers and die cuts. I added a couple of wood veneer pieces from my stash, Pink Paislee artisan frames and Thickers. I used a freebie cut file from Paper Issues.

And what a perfect way to add this to my memories but to be inspired by a Creative Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge.


Thanks Again Creative Scrapbooker...you know how to make a girl Happy!
