I pulled out a couple photos from New Year's eve where we went out to eat with some friends for this sketch from Let's Get Sketchy week 1 (I rotated the sketch) and I added a friendship quote I found at Brainy Quotes.  I love the quote.

 "Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the gardeners who make our soul blossom" Marcel Proust

Thinking of you Card

A fast and fun Easter card using the sketch from Stick It Down.

Silly Guy

A silly funny photo of Timothy done for the My Scraps April Fools prompt to use a funny photo.  And I used the My scraps sketch #76 for this one.

I used the 4/2/14 sketch at Let's Scrap for this one and I used the #1 on it for the scrap our stash challenge #14.

Simply Wonderful

Fun photos of Gracie from a while back enjoying the swing at Six Flags.  It was her favorite thing to do.  I used the sketch from Scrapping Everyday miracles for this one.  Instead of a single photo, I used 4 to make one big collage photo.   It is also for the challenge at Scrap our stash #13 to use mini treat bags on your page.  It is also for the anything goes challenge at Scrapbook Blessings.



My son and his longtime girlfriend.  Photos taken at Stephanie's baby shower.  They are so cute together.  I used the week 3 sketch from Let's Get Sketchy for this.

Another Card

I made this card for my sister. (Hope she doesn't see this before she gets it!)
I used the pagemaps card sketch on Scrapping Everyday miracles blog challenge for it.


I used the sketch from Feeling sketchy challenge 85 for this one.  Fun and simple!

Birthday card

This card is for the challenge at Frosted Design to do a project using something clear like vellum.  I used a die cut and inside I put some small die cuts and covered it with vellum so you could see them.

Birthday party fun!

Birthday party fun for Charlie's 3rd birthday.  I used the sketch from Let's Get Sketchy week 4 for March for this one.  It is also my challenge for Cookin up creations for the ABC's in April for the letter F to use the word Fun and use the inspiration photo below.  I used the colors, balloons and streamers.  Come over to CUC and join the fun challenges.   I also used the word fun from the list of words for Kelly's scrappy friends challenge

Thanks so much card

A card I made and gave to the lady at the theater that does our costuming.  I thought the sitckers were perfect.  Done for the challenge at the Paper Issues blog and challenge at Paper Girls#52 Lucky Charm challenge .  I also did it for the photo inspiration challenge at Life Paper Scrapbook.

Baby Zachary

I have my new grandson!!!  Born 3/25/14.  9 pounds 7.7 ounces 20.5 inches wahoo!  I woke up early 3/26 and did this before heading to the hospital.  I had the supplies and couldn't sleep anyway.  She is doing a Safari theme.  So I had purchased a 4x6 paper pack from Hobby Lobby to do this. I figured they would love it and they did!  Before...

Immediately after

The next day
And the present done for the Colorful Creations blog hop and Paula's challenge to do anything but a layout or card.

The Simple Things

These are photos of Gracie opening a musical birthday card from her great Grandma Nell.  It is indeed the simple things in life that are great!  I did this for the Colorful Creations blog hop and for Robin's challenge to use butterflies and flowers on your page.

Just Like Spring

I used the sketch from Turtle Scrapping forum by Bev for this page and did it for the Colorful Creations blog hop and Karen's challenge to use the word spring in the title.  These photos are from October, 2013 but it felt like spring out in the park, Gracie in shorts!

Tickled Pink

Cute photos of Gracie when she was 2.  I used the sketch at Colorful Creations and did it for the Colorful Creations blog hop for Michelle's challenge to use pastel colors.
