Sweet Dream

For ScrapbookSteals Petunia # 4 midweekmojo sketch, I've dug into my stash to find this older picture of my middle son napping on the couch with his blanket his grandmother made him. I loved the pop of red against the black couch and knew I wanted to use Fancy Pants " The Good Life" collection.

My take :

Munchkins for my Munchkin

This week's challenge for Lasting Memories is # 196 "Bannerific". Use a banner on your layout.

My most used nickname for my boys is munchkin, and how they both love to eat some munchkins from Dunkin Donuts. Lol!

Show us your Selfie

I'm super excited to be the June designer for Lasting Memories.
I unfortunately had to dig deep for a decent picture of myself that did not include one of my boys. 
 I loved how this came out and it makes me realize that my boys will appreciate more layouts of my husband and myself when they are older.  So I definitely plan on more selfie layouts.

This challenge is over on June 30th. Come join us! 
This layout also works for  S.W.A.T. Drill # 33 "The Selfie". Looks like it's a "selfie" kind of month!

My Lucky Charms

Hello there,
I have another challenge mash-up layout for you.  I combined ScrapbookSteals Midweek Mojo Daisy # 8 sketch with the Scrap Our Stash Challenge # 15 - Monochromatic Layout. I modified the sketch to accommodate 2 pictures and went all out on the green it keep it monochromatic.

I was so excited to see that my local Michael's had Heidi Swapp Color Shine in white.  I came home and wanted to play with it right away. Lasting Memories challenge # 189 make your own background was a perfect fit for my new mist. I love how the white pops against the teal card stock. 

* Update : This layout was a Friday Feature on Lasting Memories.

My Silly Eggs

I loved the simplicity of the Paper Girls Challenge blog challenge # 56 sketch. I was able to pair it up with these Easter Egg Hunt pictures from 2013 without making "Easter" the main theme.

Sunset @ The Beach

One of the many the perks of living close to the beach is that we can just get in the car and go.  Every once in a while we like to take a spontaneous trip to watch the sunset.  My boys absolutely love the beach and we love to watch them enjoy themselves.  

For the Scrap Our Stash Challenge we had use something old, something new, something blue, and something fussy cut.

Something old : I used my I-Rock to adhere the white gems that I've had in my stash for a couple of years now.
Something new : I purchased some Heidi Swap Blue Ghost Letters a couple of months ago, that I finally was able to use.
Something blue : I used multiple blue items: paper, washi tape, and the @ sign in my title.
Something fussy cut : I cut out a large cloud shape in the yellow chevron paper using my Kiwi Lane Designs template.

Knightly Cake - ScrapbookSteals Daisy # 4

After a long hiatus, I am slowly getting back into scrapbooking. 
Looking thru my photos, I decided to try and get some of my oldest sons birthday party from a couple of years ago. I don't know about you, but I have a hard time scrapping birthdays and holidays.
So here is my take on ScrapbookSteals Daisy #4 MidweekMojo Sketch. I did end up changing some paper placements to accommodate my 2nd picture.
