Mr Man

For the 2 Broke Girls Cooking Class 101 challenge for April was to emboss. I broke out my embossing powders and heat gun that have been collecting dust to add the arrows in the top right corner of my layout.I've forgotten how much fun it was to use!

New Suit

I dug deep into my photo stash for this picture of my oldest from 2011 and paired it with ScrapbookSteals MWM Amber # 7. The papers and buttons have also been hanging around for a few years as well.

My Boys

I love this picture of my boys!
I paired my picture with the Paper Secrets April 15th Challenge: A Page Map's sketch with a twist to use wood.  I used MME Indie Chic paper, MME enamel did,  and SC Wood veneer stars.

You Rock

I am following the new challenge site 2 Broke Girls. And found their Cupcakes by Design Sketch # 2 perfect for this picture of my oldest playing with his guitar.


This months Scrap Our Stash Challenge was to use one polka dot paper, one striped paper, and one bird, butterfly, or bee. The dot and striped paper would be easy for me to work in a layout of my boys, a bird or butterfly not so much. So I thought that here's a good chance to use my little stash of girly supplies and do a page of myself. :)  I used just a few pages of my 6x6 MME Dolled Up and a wood vaner little birdie I picked up from my local box store.

Messy Eater

Who doesn't love the messy faces of a toddler self feeding, and what's messier then spaghetti! I've paired these wonderful pictures of my youngest with ScrapbookSteals MWM Amber # 6 sketch and About A Boy's April 1 Challenge : Use Chevrons, which just happens to be another love of mine. :)

Mid Week Mojo sketch challenge Amber #6

I have also entered this into Memory Nest Whimsical Wednesday # 3.


Lunch Date

I loved the simplicity of the months My Minds Eye March Sketch. I paired my picture with MME Alphabet Soup and some MME Enamel dots.

ScrapbookSteals Guest Sketcher!

I don't know what I was more excited for, being asked to be a ScrapbookSteals guest sketcher or being able to work with Fancy Pants The Good Life. I remember when I first heard of ScrapbookSteals, before there even was a Mid Week Mojo. Every week there was always such great inspiration and that has helped turned scrapbooking into a major part of my life. So you can imagine how nerve wracking it was to come up with a sketch.

I loved working with The Good Life. The colors go so well together with the pop of red. Not the mention all the yummy goodies this collection comes with, the chipboard frames and layered stickers help give lots of dimension.

I can't wait to see everyone's take on the sketch, and THANK YOU ScrapbookSteals in helping me document my good life!
