You Brighten My Day

Hello! How is everyone doing today? My sketch today has a bit more "white" space than I generally use in my layouts. But I have learned that I really like it! 
I love creating little "loopies" with twine on my layouts. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Scrapping! :)

Happy Christmas

Good morning! Today I'm sharing a cute layout I did of my youngest daughter when she was only a year old. I love using pinks and blue for winter/Christmas pages. It just seems like such a nice change from the traditional red and greens.
I really enjoy the glitter. I reminds me of the snow. 
I even did a bit of stitching on this layout.
I also created my own little journaling card to match the layout. I used some vellum and layered it on some green cardtsock.

But how about a little break and I share a fun layout with you!? :) This layout was created using two different challenge's- a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy and a challenge from Paper Issue's Fall crop. Both were so much fun and challenging! 
This picture was taken two years ago at my younger sister's wedding. Setting up a makeshift photo booth was the best thing ever! All the my girls and nieces took advantage of it.

Merry and Bright

Good morning! My layout was created using Grand Divas Scrappy sketch & Rochelle Spears This or That challenge. I love how adorable this layout turned out of my three cute little's with their Grandma. 

I love adding a bit of paint to my layouts and even more if it's a little glittery! I love Heidi Swapp Color Shine mists for this very reason! The picture doesn't do it justice but I love the shimmery shine. :)

Nothing like a fun cluster of embellishments! I really love the swirls mixed with the metal hardware and wooden star.

Make sure to swing over to GrandDiva's Creative Corner to check out her sketch and Rochelle Spears  This & That Challenge.

Christmas all Wrapped up

I can't believe it's already this time of year again! These pictures are from Christmas last year. Our tree, presents that we open on Christmas eve and our presents from Santa.

Under Your Spell

Halloween has come and gone but the weather sure was gorgeous! Nothing beats being able to dress up, play in a big pile of leaves with your cousins. I love these girls and all their craziness. For this layout I used Stuck! Sketches sketch challenge which was perfect for my picture! I also participated in Paper Issues weekend crop and did their "Are you afraid of the dark?" challenge. For this challenge you were to use a dark colored background for your project.

I loved using some color shine ink on the dark cardstock it really "pops" in person! Here are a few close up's of some of the embellishments and of the ink splatters. :)

Such a fun sketch to play with. Make sure to check it out at

Wonderful & Oh So Lovely

Good morning! StuckSketches has a fun sketch to play with! I loved it! 

I started out with a white sheet of cardstock as my base. Then fussy cut an ampersand sign, adding ink to the edges.  It's always fun to be able to play with some mists and ink.
Here's a few other close up's.
