January Creations

Lots of fun layouts.. everything from scrappy friends, family at the
beach in Florida and the Gkids.
used some fun techniques, some
burlap and string, pop ups, misting, fussy bling with ribbon
and punches.

My Sketch World Challenges..
this one was to use a recycled item... the label from
clothing when the girls were here and the digi is Pattie's Creations.

Robyn Fetish digis on the 3 cards above.. see more cards using them

Delightful Inspiration

This cute card used 3 of

Designed 2 Delight digis one of them being the newest one.

The background was glimmer misted, lots of fun circles added,

inked distressed edges and a touch of bling.

Meljen's Design Challenge #43

Meljen's Design Challenge #43 HEARTS

I layered lots of hearts, doodled the edges, inked the tattered edge, added

a sentiment and a chipboard with tied ribbon.

Most importantly I used 3 of Meljen's Digis which made for

a cute valentines card.

Creative Scrappers #141

This is the first time I used a Sketch from

Creative Scrapper Sketch #141

I misted the background with meshed circle to

pull the paper circles into it.

The border punched with Kreaxions #917 and used the

Kreaxions circle cutter.

I love epoxy words... they look so cool.

Fussy cut circles with scissors, added tied ribbons

and a bit of Micron Pen doodling.

Scrapbooking Journey

Family memories when we were all together.
Three generations to share with grandkids.

My grandparents.

A visit to meet many relatives we had never even meet before.

More Texas Relatives... it was amazing to get to meet them all.

Mom's brother and SIL's out west. Haven't seen them for many years.

I just won a Dunkin' Donuts voucher from

Fancy with Nancy's blog.

She told of her scrapbooking journey and wanted to know about yours.

I shared my blog site with her because it is my scrapping journey, a story full of

family memories and lots of layouts to share all this with friends and family.

I leave a legacy of our family in the pages and

I share them with family to pass on to their family (i hope)

in years to come.

The layouts above just show a few examples of what will be passed on... it is amazing to tell
the story on Layouts to save your ancestry... and I am loving doing it.

Terrifically Thrilling Thursday

Today was so beautiful and sunny it inspired this fun bright colourful layout.
Lots of fun bright flowers and butterflies.
On the upper edge of circle which of course was cut with Kreaxions circle cutter.. I punched
the outer edge with Kreaxions #917 with insert A.
On the bottom border I punched with
Kreaxions #903 with insert A. I then used #604 for the butterflies.
Fussy cut flowers popped up, cute buttons, some Prima pearls, stitching and pierced embroidered stitching were the added accents.
For any of you that love all the punch work on my layouts and cards

to design for and the product is fabulous.

My Sketch World One Hour Sketch Challenge and Terrifically Thrilling Thursday

HI, so I was the host of the one hour sketch challenge at My Sketch World.
This is the first time I was the host and not one of the participates who
gets to create a layout using Lucy's Sketch.
With adrenaline rushing, nervous excitement you rush to
creates and share with the others what you did in an hour.

As host I thought I'd add a twist to the challenge.
I found this amazing photo which they were encouraged to
use as colour inspiration.

Below is my sample of the finished layout using the sketch by Lucy
and the colour inspiration of the photo.
I used border punches by Kreaxions #305 and #917 with insert
Used lots of fun fussy cutting to make the flower accents aroung the circle.
Prima bling pearls were a perfect soft touch and a few gem stone, sticker title
and touch of doodling.. and of course the beautiful photos of my girls made it perfect.
I used this adorable layout as my Terrifically Thrilling Thursday
