Back today for layout I created for a dual purpose....check my youtube in a few days for the second.  The main reason I create this page was the awesome sketch by Laura Whitaker over at Stuck Sketches.  It was perfect for using up the bits an pieces I had left in my December 2016 My Creative Scrapbook kit. I actually only have one full piece of paper left from the kit, and I've done five layouts and two projects so far.  Hope it inspires you to get your scraps out!

Tiny Toes

Hi everyone and welcome to the last Scrapping Our Stash blog hop for the year.  I'm your last stop, but you should have arrived here from Majken's blog.
I'm the only one who didn't do Christmas for the hop :-)  I wanted to get the papers in this layout used  up!  It's a very old Scrapbook Generation kit that I couldn't use the way they intended so I challenged myself to use it up.I used it, but still mange to have most of it
The background and title were cut from my cameo and designed by my friend Stacia.  I them took my cheap watercolor set from Michael's and colored the hearts a pale pink.  The papers from the background and heart fillings are Pink Paislee Bella Rouge. Oh, and the washi tape...hate it on the photo above, but like it in real life...strange!
Thanks for hoping with us today...and all year long!  Can't wait to see what January brings for our hop community.

It's A Girl

I love being on vacation!  I haven't gotten this much done in awhile, and even then it's not much!  This is another photo taken during our daughters newborn shoot.  She was so very good.
This is a sketch from Creative Scrappers and a mood board from Scrap the Girls. The mood board had different shades of pink as well as a gold glitter.  I used the shades of pink and the rest of the mood board reminded me of a celebration, and what's a better reason to celebrate than a newborn baby!
Paper is the It's A Girl collection from Carta Bella.  I will say I had a really hard time matching the pinks on this one to anything in my stash.  
Well....I better run - the Christmas cookie timer is calling my name.  Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Jolly Old Nick

Sunday must be a good day for me a I'm here with another layout to share with you.  This one, just like my last, was inspired by the sketch at My Creative Sketches.  I am also entering it into the anything goes challenge at Lasting Memories.
I used the My Creative Scrapbook kit from December 2015.  Yes - I still have kits that are a year old...even older if I'm honest.
The photo is from breakfast with Santa from this year.  It was a fundraiser for M's school and he wanted to attend so badly, but I was working.  My awesome parents stepped in and took the kids.  We've never been big on the Santa thing, but now that he attends school with kids who's rubbed off.  I guess there are worse things that could rub off right!?
Well if I don't talk to you again this week...Have a Merry Christmas!

Each time I finally get a layout done and photographed now I'm amazed at how long it's been since I've blogged.  
I completed this one a week or so ago and it only took me about an hour.  I swear that since I've been doing boy layouts for six years they come so much easier than doing one for the little lady.  
The sketch came from a collaboration between My Creative Scrapbook/Sketches and Creative Scrappers.

The cards and embellishments are from Simple Stories School collection...while the yardstick just came from my stash.  The title is from Paper Wizard. If you haven't checked out their diecuts you really should.  Paper Wizard and Dancing Daisy Designs are my go too for professional layered cuts.
Well - I'm off for now as nap time is almost over.  I hope to check in with you all again sooner than later!

Play Time

I know I've been absent for a LONG time, but I promise I'm trying to work on new inspiration.  I have been keeping my Youtube and Instagram accounts fairly current though.  If you're interested in following me there the links are on the right hand side of the blog.  I've also started a new health experience with Plexus which I also linked in the right tool bar.
Without further ado...Here is a layout I completed with one of my scraptastic kits.  It's of our daughter when she was a month old starting to look and play with her little gym. 
The products are mostly Amy Tangerine with some stash items thrown in here and there.  My favorite part of the layout though is the heart and title.  The hearts were created with Faber Castel glass beads. I did a review of the product over on my youtube sure to check it out.  The title I made with my Silhouette Cameo sketch pens.  Can I even tell you how much I loved the effect!
Okay - I better get back to trying to create...quite time is limited around here :-)

Life Is Good In The Country Layout

     Hi everyone and welcome to the July Scrapping Our Stash blog hop.  I now I've been absent for awhile, but returning to work has really been cutting into my blogging time...darn bills :-)   You should have arrived here from Alison's blog.  Tell me what you loved most about her project!
    Can you believe I'm still working on my Scrapbook Generation kits!  I forget which kit this was, but if I had to guess the paper is from Jillibean soup.  This is our son's second trip to the Clearfield County Fair.  We're actually going again on Wednesday!
Well - that's it today so continue to hop on over to Wendy's blog to see what awesome project she created.
