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.

Smart & Sassy

 Hey there!
I'm still having a lot of fun working on some of the NSD challenges.
This layout fits challenge #7 from Scrap Our Stash using sketch #128 from Sketch N Scrap:

The SOS challenge also called for stars which I added from Elle's Studio.
Here's a few closeups:

Happy Scrapping,

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!
