Get Picky Sketch

I just found this sketch site called Get Picky. And this months sponsor is Purple Pumpkin so really wanted play. I used a Midnight Rooster June kit.
This is my son who is in love with candy! Everytime we go to the post office or bank his first words are "Can I have lollipop?"

Closeups: Look at those cute little buttons. How perfect are those for this layout?! (they came in the kit ;) )

Pretty Little Studio Sketch

Hello! It's almost Friday and I can't wait! We are leaving for vacation for a week! So I wanted to get some challenge posted that I have been working. I did the sketch challenge over at Pretty Little Studio. I won a couple of weeks ago and used my GC to buy some of the new Antique collection. Let me tell you it is such a pretty line! I bought the paper pack, buttons, and tags.

Here is my layout and below is a little step by step.

Here is a close up:

First I made a grid on the back of my paper:

Then I used the all over border punch:

Then I cut out the little squares that came on the "demo" sheet:

Thanks for looking!

Sassafras Challenge Week

Hello! I have had a fun week working on the Sassafras challenges! They posted a challenge everyday this week (except Monday)! I don't have a lot of Sassafras since my LSS doesn't sell their lines so I had to use what I had gotten in my kits. So you'll notice I have mixed a lot of their lines together. And I think they mix well.

First challenge was a journaling challenge from Megan. I took this opportunity to use the interview I did with my son back in June for his 5th Birthday.

Second Challenges was from Marcy and she want you to use your alphas some other way then in a title. I choose to use my l and i's and make them look like stitching. And also the little strip on the side; I used the o's to make a border.

Third Challenge was from Kimberly. And it was to do a layout about a "family tradition". I choose to do a layout about going to the lake we go to every year.

And the forth challenge is from Michelle and she issued a color challenge. The bottom middle photo reminded me of this picture I had of the boys running and the colors were so fun!

Sketchy Thursday's

Hello! I have been so busy lately. How about you? I went school shopping for my 2 the other day and got a lot done! I love Kohl's!! When they say they pay you to shop they aren't kidding! I got some awesome deals! And Kohl's cash on top of that!

After we went shopping we went to a duck pond and for ice cream at a local old fashion dairy.

I used the GDT sketch from Sketchy Thursdays and some papers from Pretty Little Studio.

I love this picture where Hannah is sticking her tongue out waiting for her turn.

Love the little vintage tags.

Here is this week sketch too:

I also used a prompt from Scrapping Everyday Miracles. You were to scrap something that started your day and use stitching.

Sweet Peach Scraplift

Hello! Hope everyone is having a great week! I am! This week has flown by for me. Any plans this weekend? I'm hoping to take my oldest school shopping. Yes, you read that right. I want to get an early start since I have 2 this year going.

Today over at Sweet Peach I post the new challenge. It is a super fun one! Scraplifting the DT!! Since this is their first month I thought this would be a good way to honor them and their amazing talent!

I took longer picking the layout to scraplift then I did working on the layout LOL!

Here is my take on a layout by Sara: I used the Sweet kit and a little bit of Juicy.

Here is Sara's using the Juicy!

Hope you jump over and join us!

Elle's Studio Sketch

Happy 4th of July! I got some time to scrap today YAY! So pulled up the sketch from Elle's Studio, printed a big picture from PSE, layed out my Sweet Peach kit, and went to work.

I had fun fussy cutting and playing with foldies and using some Elle's Studio tags/flashcards. It felt so good to scrap today!

This is a picture I took yesterday of my four kids out at the Gutshall farm.

Here is a close up of the title. I put part of my title on the photo and used Elle's Studio flash cards for the other half of the title.

I took the Maya Road flowers and put on the Sassafras Foldies.

I used one of my Elle's Studio tags as a background for the stripes of paper from the Cosmo Cricket paper.

I did some hand cutting with the Webster's Pages paper and added some buttons and pearls.

I also used an Elle's Studio tag on the side of the picture.
