Peace Love & Pineapples

 Check out this fun layout I made using the sketch from Freckled Fawn:

I am totally loving their sketches!
This layout just really made itself. I had this cute photo of my daughter dressing up for Spirit Week and with all the fun summer product out there it was easy to put together.

In these closeups you can see that I used different layers to bring a little more depth to the layout.

I also added some of these fun dew drops I've recently rediscovered in my stash.
Thanks for dropping in!


I have this super fun layout to share with you today:

 I used a sketch from Scrap the Boys for this layout.
I had so much fun with these pics of my little guy washing is found "Treasure", going with a sea/pirate theme just fit.
Here are a few closeups:

I had to dig into 2 different sets of letters to get what I needed for my title, so I just spruced up my white letters a bit to help them compete better for attention on the white background.

The design of the sketch allowed for some fun journaling along the bottom of this main banner.

I finished up by using my skull and crossbones punch on the paper in the lower right corner and then adding it to bottom of the banner under the photos.

Thanks for sailing in!

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.

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.

Once Upon A Time

Welcome to the end of May.
Can you believe it's almost June? Where did the first half of the year go?
Who knows but I am excited for summer and time with my totally fabulously fun kiddos!
Speaking of, here's a layout about my youngest silly guy:

I used the May Jump Start sketch from The Scrap Room and their May kit.
Love this kit!!

I made a couple small changes to the sketch. Instead of putting my title at the bottom, I put my date and then added a smaller title up at the top of the photo.

There wasn't really a designated spot for journaling on the sketch, but around the layout is always fun and there was plenty of room. So that's what I did.

I finished up with a few of the fun embellishments from the Embellishment add-on and these great Jillibean stars that have been in my stash for a little too long.

Thanks for stopping by!

Coloring Eggs

Have you been over to the Sketches in Thyme blog this month?
They have some awesome sketches over there with lots of fun samples for you to look at.
And of course a great prize!

Here's the sketch I worked with this month:

And here's what I did with it:

I used the circle pattern on the sketch to inspire the oval eggs shaped decorations on my Easter layout. Then I used washi tape and pen stitching to add some details.

I used a big sticker for the title. It worked perfect in the area that the sketch had the title.
I love it because sometimes those big stickers just don't work where you need a title.

I finished up with some bright dew drops and cute heart stickers.
Don't forget to check out the other sketches for this month on the Sketches In Thyme blog.

Today I'm sharing this fun Explore layout:

I used the Freaky Fast Friday challenge from The Scrap Room and added the NSD challenge from Scrap Our Stash.

I used this fun travel line with some bright colors and fun tropical embellishments to accent some family photos.

Here, I added a sticky backed brad to the center of this wood veneer for a unique look.

Thanks for popping in!

Happy Guy

 It's National Scrapbook day!
I'll be heading out in not too long to go to a couple soccer games, but I wanted to play a little while I could.
I've created this fun layout:

This little guy is just so fun and energetic! He is constantly making me laugh.

This fits Challenge #1 from Scrap Our Stash.
Which was using a sketch from Grand Diva's Creative Corner and challenge from Rochelle Spears blog to use a fussy cut item (my blue swirl bottom right of photo), patterned papers, border punch (stars) & then add mixed alphas.
Here are a couple detail photos:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get to create something fun today!
