Scrapbook Challenges and Scrap it with a Song

Good morning blogosphere.  I am up way earlier that I would like to be, but I haven't been sleeping very well and I hate just laying there.  So here I am.

First off, lets start with the sketch this week at Scrapbook Challenges. 

I just loved this sketch and decided to make it into a one photo page.   And here is my page,

And now for my last official page as a DT member at Scrap it with a Song.  I decided to retire, as I am just overwhelmed with things at the moment.  The song is Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. 

And here is my page,

I think I may add some buttons to the flowers, but I am not sure yet, lol. 

The sponsor for this week is Toucan Scraps.  She has offered the winner a 6 pack of digi papers. 

So there you have it.  Have a great week.

Winter Wonderland

The song this week at Scrap it With a Song, is "Winter Wonderland."  This one was pretty easy for me, as last year we lived in a winter wonderland. LOL.  This week the sponsor is The Stamping Boutique.  I have never worked with digi images before.  I have often been intimated by the thought of it.   But I thought I would give it a try.  And I loved how it came out.  Here is my page featuring the snowflake tree stamp.

So I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving and you find a little bit of scrappy time and that you all play along.

Scrapbook Challenges and a Christmas Wreath

Every Monday Scrapbook Challenges posts a new sketch.  And for some reason, I haven't been sharing them with you- bad blogger.  So here are the ones that are up this month- doing them gets you entered into the running for the monthly prize

Sketch 225

And my page

Sketch 227

Loved this sketch, but didn't get a chance to do it

Sketch 228

And my page

This pictures are from last year.  We just got their pictures back from this year, and there is such a difference.  I can't believe how big they have grown over the last year. 

Now I am not much of a crafter or an altered project gal, but when I saw Jackie's tutorial on her blog on the Christmas wreath she made I knew I had to give it a try.  So here is mine

I used Fired Brick and Peeled Paint distress ink- Jackie used different colors, but I didn't have those  . . .  I added the bow and the bells for another touch.  Now I just need to figure out how to water proof it so I can hang in on my door permanently.

Twisted Sketches, the Scrappiest and A Cherry on Top

So I went a crop this weekend.  I only did 6 layouts, but I did do 18 cards.  It was mainly the same card 18 times, LOL.  So I will share one or two of those at a later date.

Now here is what I managed to do layout wise- well a few of them anyway.

First Twisted Sketches.  The twist was circles.  I am also using this for ACOT manufacturer challenge- sassafrass lass.  I was attempting to also use this at Scrapbook Challenges (4 photos, stitching, red and ribbon.)  For some reason I didn't bring any of my ribbon with me and once I finished I didn't want to go back and mess with the page.  I really like this one, (which probably means no one else will.)

These pictures were from Bella's first day at tee-ball. She is the only girl in the class and she was the only one to hit a home run that day.  So proud.

Next for the Scrappiest #89, which I am also using at ACOT for the countdown challenge (5 buttons, 4 halloween themed elements, 3 pieces of paper, 2 pumpkins, and black background.)

These are our halloween decorations.  This was the first year we ever decorated for halloween. 
Everything here (minus the buttons) is from a kit at its scraptacular.

The next one is for the sketch challenge at ACOT.

Another page where almost all the elements come from a kit at its scraptacular. 

And my last one today is for the "scraplift the guest design team member."

Papers and flowers are from a kit at the Scrap Room.

Well that is all for now.

So A Cherry on Top had a big crop this weekend and somehow I managed to play along and get four pages done.  So here they are,

Scrap it With a Song

This week the song at Scrap it with a Song is "You've got a friend in me" from the movie Toy Story. I decided to use a picture of my two girls. So here it is,

Now when I first did this page I LOVED it. Now, eh not so much. LOL, not really sure why. But anyway, . . .
Our sponsor this week, Crop Chocolate, has donated to one lucky winner $20 in crop credits to be spent on their amazing site!!
