All Girl w/ SOS

 So today is my first reveal on the Scrap Our Stash blog and I am SO excited!!
The SOS blog has 2 different challenges each month to encourage you to get in there and scrap your stash. First up is the tic-tac-toe board.
You add three things to your layout from the board by using a row, column or diagonal.
Here's the board:

I went the diagonal line including Number, Stars & Banner.
Here is my layout:

This layout was so FUN! I picked out these pics of my daughter ripsticking and found a kit in my stash that was at least a year old that was all about paint and splatters. It was perfect!

So I started with this brick patterned paper for my background and then sprayed it with colorful dylusions ink sprays. After letting that dry I added my star patterned paper and fun layers of washi tape.

I kept embellishing adding lots of detail, a banner and some numbers for a date at them bottom over the top of some die cut cans of spray paint.

I can't wait to see what you do with the challenge! You have until the 29th to enter for the prize on the Scrap Our Stash blog.

Thanks for swinging by!

Round and Round

 Have you been by the Sketches In Thyme blog yet?
They've got some great sketches over there.
Today I'm sharing with you my take on the 2nd week sketch for July.
Here's what I did:

Here's the sketch I used by Shawn Lahr:

Super fun and perfect for my photos, don't you think?
Here's a few closeups of my layout:

I started by adding some white dylusions ink spray splatters to my background and then started cutting patterned papers into circles.

 Next up I added my photos and title around the main photo.

Then finished up with some rhinestones and fun embellishments.

A little bit of weekend fun using the sketch from Elle's Studio:

I created this fun layout:

 I made my own star template to spray the stars on my background, pulled out my Elle's Studio papers and picked one to back my photo.

Then I added some fun Elle's embellishments along with the labels and washi tape

The fun part of my title was that I had these letters sitting their already colored from a previous project, so I put them to work here and it was perfect.
Thanks for stopping by!

So Silly!

 Happy 1st day of June!
It officially feels like summer break to me and now.
Hopefully we manage to keep are summer relatively low key.
I love having chill time with my kiddos.

Today I'm sharing this fun layout:

Based on a sketch I found on the Freckled Fawn blog
This sketch was so fun! I knew the Emoji would be perfect and I found these fun pics of my son goofing with his friend and knew they were the perfect photos for this layout.

I started with dripping a bit of color onto my background. Then I popped the ephemera with foam adhesives of varying sizes.

I followed the sketch for placement of title and journaling.

And finished up with some fun little details on the side.

Thanks for stopping by!
