Simply Scrapping Crafts Sketchy Saturdays in April

Kids as subjects make for the best photos.. too cute, fun and we all love them.
Also great layouts to save the many memories as they grow up together.

It was great to have friends visit in Florida. This layout is my
clan of friends that come to Florida on their yearly get away,
shopping spree and unwind holiday. They stay two whole weeks
and we thoroughly enjoy ourselves.... Fun in the Sun

Simply Scrapping Crafts - "Feel the Love" 1st online CROP

Hope you will mark you calendar, set aside some time and crop the weekend with us. We are all so excited to be part of the 1st online crop at Simply Scrapping Crafts.

Kristin's Progressive Monthly Challenge at My Sketch World

So we have been collecting items for weeks to complete Kristin's Progressive Layout Challenge: tulle, punch, gold, flowers with at least one homemade one, something to do with rain, a scraplift, and something recycled. At first I couldn't image what I would do with my collected items. The tulle started out by being purple - out of a Sally Ann 2nd had store..out of the garbage can no less... because the craft store was closed. From there I just kept collecting purple. The recycled piece had me stumped until I found the backing of the prima flowers package.
The wedding I helped decorate for was purple and I had great photos from the wedding. This will be a gift page for the bride.

Thanks to Kristin for a fabulous, fun challenge.

PROJECT 365 @ My Sketch World

Project 365 is used to incourage us to post regularly up to date photos

and then post a finished layout using them.. we can do dayly, weekly

or monthly - whatever we choose. I joined the challenge so

I would force myself to get some current layouts

done rather than just older ones.

I also enjoy the aspect of this that challenges me to

take more photos... it is fun to do some non people layouts, using

birds, animals, scenery, sunsets, objects, and places etc.

The two layouts above were while in Florida - I followed the local

Eagles nesting and the waterfront pelicans and ducks.
