The Perfect Shot layout

 It's really hard to get that perfect shot with sports photos, isn't it?
I spend a lot of time with my camera at my kids sporting events and I love every minute, but I often find that getting that amazing shot is almost impossible no matter how much time you spend or how hard you try.
I decided scrapping these photos that I would document just how hard it can be.

I have officially decided we need a scrapbook line geared more to our photography sides, but I managed to come up with a pretty great layout by combining travel, softball and daily document lines.

This layout was for Sketches In Thyme using this fun sketch from designer Jenessa Franco

Thanks for stopping by today!

gimmie smores layout

Today I'm sharing this layout:

It's a lot of work to pack and get up there and then all the clean up when you get home, but I really do love camping. The fire, nature and the peaceful time with my family is amazing every time.

I really love using these bug chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments for these camping layouts!
Thanks for stopping by.

So proud of this kid!
Thanks, Angela

 There are so many fun things to play with on their website. It's definitely hard to just pick a few so you don't overwhelm your photos.
Don't you just love that little fairy on the tree stump?

Wonderful day layout

I was not a fan of the sketch for this month but I do think I managed to get a decent layout out of it. Doesn't hurt that this is my favorite oldest daughter either!

Thanks for stopping!

Sparkle layout

Hello all!
I hope you're having a wonderful July.
Today I'm sharing a layout I made using a sketch from the ScrapRoom and products from Creative Embellishments.


My son was a bit wild with his sparklers so having him make some cool pictures was a good way to keep an eye him and keep everyone safe.
He loved making designs in the photos.

Here's a couple closeups for you:

Thanks for swinging in today!

Your perseverance & determination layout

 Hi! Today I'm sharing a layout created with Creative Embellishment goodies.
I started off with a great photo and sketch designed by Rebecca Moore.
Then I picked out these fun chipboard words from the Determination word set at CE for my title.



I used the star envy stencil and some ink pads for my background, layered my papers similar to the sketch design and then had fun adding more embellies and my journaling.
I used chipboard nested stars, wood veneer soccer balls & acrylic mirrored silver stars.

Here are a few closeups:




Thanks so much for coming by!

Hello Cutie! layout

 Hey everyone!
Thanks for visiting today.
I have a fun layout for you using this sketch from Sketches In Thyme:



This is just a fantastic sketch that is easy to work with, here is my layout:

This little cutie loved having his hair up in a mohawk and colored for all of his Tball games.
lol So much fun!
The layout did not feel done until I used a black pen to go around some of the paper edges. It really gave it the finished look.

A little Dirt Never Hurt layout

 Happy day to you all!
Today I'm working with products from Creative Embellishments.

So this entire layout is based around the title piece from Creative Embellishments; A little Dirt Never Hurt.
I found the perfect photo with my son shrugging his "what?" at me, grabbed a sketch by Dee Hunt and the rest of the layout really created itself.
Here are some closeups:


I used a lot of brown ink all over the layout and chipboard pieces.
The gears that help the title piece pop are colored with silver metallic marker.
I think my favorite part, after the title, might be the wood veneer mushrooms. They're just so cute!

Thanks! :)Angela

Volleyball layout

 Happy June to you all!
I hope you're getting outdoors a bit and enjoying some fun and sun.
Today I'm sharing a layout based on a sketch from Scrap Our Stash.

I turned the sketch to fit my photos and just had so much fun with this layout. Normally my volleyball photos are from my older daughter's team and those tend to be school colors. So with this camp layout I used a lot of the elements that had colors that do not go with the school layout.

Thanks for stopping by!

Dad layout

Hey there!
Father's day is coming up and I have a fun layout to share with you.

I enjoyed creating this layout so much!
I love the fun, goofy photo of my husband with my kids climbing all over him and that made it easy to just add elements and decorate until the layout was full of fun too.

I used lots of pieces from Creative Embellishments, including a starburst stencil for the background.
Here are a few detail photos for you:


Thanks so much for coming by today.
Wishing you a happy week.

Dude! You rock


Today I'm using a sketch from Sketches In Thyme. I've turned the sketch to fit my photos better.


 My son enjoyed going to soccer camp quite a bit. He loved the scrimmages and the competition. He's a serious competitor but does so well with the team aspect.
Love this kid.

Thanks for stopping in!

Dreamer layout

Today I'm sharing a layout for Creative Embellishments.

When you get those quiet, peaceful moments you just have to soak them in, right?
This one never was much for sleeping, so I enjoyed these moments all I could.

I had a lot of fun with the wood veneer and chipboard pieces on this layout. Here's some closeups for you:

A bit of metallic white chalk and some fun gel crayons and lots of layered chipboard with some wood veneer hearts sprinkled here and there to top it all off.

Warming Up layout

Welcome and happy June!
I may have mentioned this but I'm super excited to have some warmer weather to run around in.
True to form I have another ballpark layout for you based on a challenge from Scrap Our Stash.

It's fun to watch them enjoy what they're doing.
My son's team was up to bat, so he grabbed helmet and started warming up.
He was not on deck or in the hole, but he was definitely ready to bat. lol

The challenge was to use an item on your layout for each letter in the word SCRAP.
I used
S- stickers, scraps;
C- pop can for ink rings;
R- Ranger Inks, rub-ons;
A- Alphas;
P- patterned paper, pictures

on my layout for the challenge.

Happy Scrapping to you!

Pancake layout

I have another fun sports layout to share with you today!

These photos have both my daughters in them. It was really fun to watch my oldest 'teach' my youngest a little about the sport she loves and enjoys.
My oldest is on the left demonstrating a Pancake and my youngest is on the right practicing it.

I used a lot of awesome Creative Embellishment products on this layout.
I spruced up some of my stars with my gel crayons but left the wood veneer stars and volleyballs naked.
I also used a sketch from Sketch N Scrap.

Here are a few closeups:

Thanks for popping in today!

Stay Curious layout

 Can you believe we're already halfway through May?
I think this year is going to fly by.

Today I'm sharing a layout based on a sketch challenge from Scrap Our Stash:



I just loved the way this layout turned out. The sketch was fun and butterflies are usually pretty easy to use. These photos are of my son and I posing after he used every barrette we had in my hair. Most kids go through stages of wanting to do hair and I sure don't mind having it played with. It reminded me of the days that I used to do my dads hair. lol

Thanks for stopping by today!

Baseball layout

 Hello all!
It's shaping up to be a pretty good week here and the weekend was fabulous. Love getting some sun on my skin.

And on that note here's a fun Baseball layout for you:

For the love of Baseball!
One of my favorite sports and I LOVE watching my kids play.

I've layered chipboard stars and wood veneer baseballs from Creative Embellishments in various spots on this layout to spruce up the papers and stickers.
Also, I used a sketch from Sketch N Scrap.

Here are a few more closeups:


I hope you get out of the house and enjoy some baseball/softball this year.
Thanks for stopping in!
