That is what little boys do best, I think and my little guy is no exception. Today I have another Nuts sketch for you:

So fabulous and fun, with so many wonderful possibilities. I love using sketches, especially Shawn's.

Here is the layout I came up with:

I love these moments when the kids are not only getting along but helping each other out. Shylee has been a fabulous big sister.

gettin' some SUN

Idaho style!

This week's Nuts sketch is a 2 pager:

Great sketch, but the right side was just screaming at me and I had this oh so cute picture of Jayse. I just really love the way this one turned out.

I used some papers and stickers from the new Fancy Pants Wave Searcher line that I got from My Scraps & More. LOVE this line! I did some pop-dotting, sanding on the embossed cs, inking on the AC glitter Thickers for the SUN part of the title, a little stickling, inking with some SEI inks and lots of doodling with my Stampin' Up markers.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the dt layouts of this sketch HERE and thanks for stopping by!

Scrap Our Stash April

April's challenge is Spring Fling! So I went with a spring themed layout.

These photos are from last Easter. Doing an Easter egg hunt for our kids is one of our favorite Easter activities. So it was really fun to watch our then 1.5 year old find his eggs and when he chose to slide down the slide for this one, instead of run around to it, it just made us laugh.

This was a really fun page to make. I did a lot of misting, inking and stickling. I have to say the title looks much better in person with all of that glitter. I used My Little Shoebox papers and stickers and staples, buttons, thread, ribbon, chipboard letters, sticker alphas and those egg stickers from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Don't forget to join us in the challenge to use up our stash. You can find all the details here.

Nuts About Sketches

Shawn put together a great 2 page sketch for this week. Check it out:

Great title area, lots of 4x6 photos and I loved the circles, so of course I used them.

Here's my layout:

I used an older Echo Park line called Wintertime. I just love the papers and the element stickers are so fun and easy to use. I popped up a few of them to add some dimension and added some silver liquid pearls. The hardest part of this whole lo was figuring out how to get all the photos on that I wanted, but even that was easy once I decided to show Jayse's running path.
I really love watching my kids play. :)
