SNS Card Sketch #172

Hi everyone, I have been trying to use up what I have. I had this little adorable DiplomaBella in my stamped basket. I have had this stamp forever and ever. Recently I made this card and as I was looking for information about the stamp I realized it was so old that I could barely find any information about it! Tell me I am not alone in old stuff. Do you have oldies but goodies? Do you have any pre-stamped imagines that you either stamped extra of or...back in the good ole days I used to get together with my other scrappy friends and we would share our stamps and sometimes I would stamp some extras to be used later...well that was like 10 years ago y'all. Later is NOW!!

It is time to bash that stash. Use it up.

 Here is the wonderful sketch I used from Sketch N Scrap Card Sketch #172

SNS Layout 203

Hello everyone, more fun photos from senior year in 2013. My daughter had a big year with her soccer team. They were like magic and ended up winning both sectionals and were also conference champs! That had not been done in 23 years! She got to have her photo (with the team) hung on the wall in the athletics wing and they all got to ring the victory bell as well. What an exciting time!!! 

I received this pretty Vicki Boutin paper kit All the Good Things from The ScrapRoom when I told my friend how fantastic the kit was every month. What a lovely surprise that was and the papers were perfect for this page as our school colors are Black & Orange. I could also probably mention how our mascot is the Barbie Crow (Barbie...because Barbed Wire was invented here)

Here is the sketch I used. Isn't it fabulous? I love it and will be using it time and time again. I adore all the clusters. Head on over to Sketch N Scrap and let us see what you come up with.

SNS Layout #202

 I have been working on getting my studio organized. Durring this organization I have discovered that I left out quite a few important layouts from 2013. I mean it was a HUGE year so I understand how I just missed them in the wonderful happy fog I was in. Anyway here is a fun page from when my middle daughter was selected to be in the District Art Show. This anchor was so super cool and she also made a splash base for the anchor to sit in.

We would love to see what you can come up with useing the newest sketch from Sketch N Scrap.

Sketch #202 from Sketch N Scrap you can link up over at the blog.

SNS Card Sketch #170

More Pure Innocence for you today. I simply adore this little gals. This one is acutally not one that I own. It is from a pre-stamped bin that I had, and I have been trying to use up the images. I have had some of them for decades! I love that when I grab a sketch I can just make any image and any set of paper work with it. Literally endless possibilities here.

So do you know any gardeners? Have they planted their gardens yet? We have a flower garden at our new house but I have hung up my gardener gloves on the veggies. I love to plant them and watch them grow until the weeks come. Then I look up a lot or over...anywhere except those darn weeds!

I always like to decorate the insides of my cards as well here is a peek at that.

Here is the sketch that I used Sketch N Scrap #170

SNS Layout #201

Hello have you all been having fun playing along with us this month? We hope you are getting a lot done. Today I have a great layout to share with you. I have had these photos for a while and just didn't know what I wanted to do with them and then I was working with this sketch and I just could envision exactly how I wanted this page to look. I also got to use some of my older stash which I always am happy to do. Can you spot the old stuff? 

Actually I think the paper is old as well but the chipboard banner! I love banners and I love chipboard however for some reason I have never used these so on the page they went.

I used the Sketch N Scrap sketch #201 please share what you come up with.

Something a little different - Mad About Sketches

We are collaborating with Cookin up Creations where they are Mad About Sketches this month over at Sketch N Scrap!!!

We were asked to pick on our favorite sketches to be featured over there and I went with Sketch #112

I have been focusing on some stories from my 2013 album. These photos are some of the funniest I have ever taken as my middle daughter is making fun of me because I cannot peel hard boiled eggs. I had a total melt down one day when we were trying to make deviled eggs and I was in such a stressed out hurry I squeezed the eggs together and tossed them into the sink. She never lets me live it down. It has given us a million laughs and on this day she was making eggs and was struggling to peel them. She finally understood but still mocked and teased me as she pretended to be me. I caught it all on camera. For the journaling I asked her to text me what was going on in these photos so I have her version of the story.

The struggle is real folks! Can you peel eggs?
