I tell you, this little guy totally has me wrapped around his finger. I am in big trouble.
But at least I know his cute sense of humor will keep me entertained.

I had a lot of fun using a sketch from Let's Scrap for this layout. The sketch was actually for a card but it was really easy to turn into a layout.

I used a dark background so I could mist some white dylusions spray on it for a snowy feel, tore a bit of the light blue pp from Moxxie's Winterland line for the outer edge.

Then had fun layering hearts cut with my silhouette from different papers from the line.

I finished up with some of the super cute hexagons, die-cuts and some wood veneer snowflakes I've had hanging out in my stash.

Stay warm!

Gamer w/ NAS

It's NAS Monday and I had FUN with this layout. lol

My daughter bought me some fun scrapbook products for Xmas so I dug into them for this layout. My little guy was obsessed with my sister's Ipad when she was visiting. You could hardly get him to put it down. As you can see in the photo on the right, he would give you a smile, but there's was no eye contact. 

I stuck really close to the sketch but added a bit of misting to the background before starting. The rings are just ink daubed on the end of a toilet paper roll and then put to the background.

I love the washi tape she gave me, such a fun pattern and I used it to go around my entire layout, then added a few more for fun.

I think my favorite part was when I was putting the title on and realized how much some of the periods, asterisks and other symbols looked like gaming features. So I went for it and have some pretty unique embellishments!

Here's the sketch:

No! w/ Simple Stories

Today's fun layout was made for a challenge over at Memorable Seasons.
The challenge is to pair an unexpected color with others on your layout.

This cute Snow Fun line from Simple Stories does that for you. You just don't expect this green to be in a line of blues, grays and whites, but it sure does look good and catch the eye.

This layout is about my daughter who did not want to build a snowman but did tunnel under the snow to make her own snow cave. The bottom photo shows her crawling into her cave. I didn't get a photo of how big it was but she fit in just fine.

With that fun green I was able to make my main photo stand out really easily and then added a few of the cute word stickers from the line around it.

I'm not a big fan of ribbon but I did like this really big gray with white polka dots and used it for layers across my layout. Then I added my journaling over it. The journaling card in the kit had more around it but I wanted the white edges to help it stand out, so I cut that part off. 

Finish it off with some fun layered banners and cute stickers.

A New adventure

I did a bit of playing yesterday and here is the fun layout that came from it.

My little guy had his first big "adventure" sleeping out in our backyard in a tent. He was so excited! I actually caught a photo of him fist pumping because he couldn't contain himself. lol So funny!

I used a sketch from Scrapbook Circle and just started layering all these fun elements, after adding a bit of White dylusions to the background.

My title was a prompt from a Frosted Designs challenge. I used Moxxie's new alphas and then outlined them with a brown marker to make the title really pop.

Volleyball Playah! w/ Moxxie & NAS

Today I have a super fun 2 page layout for you:

My daughter with some of her friends a summer ago at a fund raising volleyball tournament. They had so much fun, even though the weather was SO hot.
My layout is based on this fun sketch from Nuts About Sketches:

And I used the awesome Volleyball line from Moxxie.

I'm not normally a 2page scrapper, so when I do scrap them, I tend to stick pretty closely to the sketch provided.

I didn't have a large photo to use, so in the place of the 5x7 I used 2 4x6's that I just cut down a bit to fit the area better.

I used 4 photos along the bottom left and cut out the unnecessary portions of the photos. This sketch was super fun and easy to use. And the Volleyball line from Moxxie is definitely my favorite Volleyball line EVER!
Have a great day.
