2 Sketches and Layouts

Here is the GDT sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. We were to use 3 Manufactures and 3 different embellishments. I used paper from Basic Grey, Webster's Pages, and Hambly. The embellishments I used were brads, felt shape, and ribbon. I used the kit from Urban Anthology. Ty loves eating snow and playing in it.

Here is a this weeks sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays. I just took these pictures the other day we got 3 feet of snow. It was our first snow of this season. The kids loved it and I love taking pictures. This is Noah and this is his first time in snow he didn't know what to think.

A fun layout

Here is a layout I did using the Sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. This is a layout of my son's first day of preschool. I did not use any scrapbook paper. It is all made with his art work from school. I had fun reusing something. Hope this gives some of you an idea for your kids many projects.

Wind and a Fall Layout

Today was a very windy day. We had a big tree branch fall in our yard it about hit the porch. Here is a picture.

On a scrappy note, I worked on my layout for Sketchy Thursdays. This is Faith jumping in leaves. She could wait to jump in the leaves. She called her dad at work one day to tell him to buy her a rake.

Beautiful Day!

Wow! Today is so nice out. It is warm in the sun but a nice cool fall breeze. We went out for a little while to enjoy it. I have been working on my layout for UA's Got Talent I'm almost done. I just need to add one more thing. A fellow Willow is sending me to add to my page. I'm loving this layout. Hope you all like it to.
My son has learned to climb on our kitchen chairs then get up on our table! Gotta go get him down again.

Time to Vote Again

Today is a beautiful day here in Pa. The sun is shining and the temperature is 62 degrees. This is a great Fall day. I have been working on my layout for this weeks Urban Anthology's Got Talent Challenge and this week we were to use old paper and a technique. My technique was on bleaching and I have it listed below. If you have a chance PLEASE vote for my layout it is the one under my3blessings. Here is my layout and here is the technique.

Bleaching Technique

Supplies you will need:
Cardstock (darker colors work better)
Glimmer Mist(optional)

First put a little Clorox on a paper towel just enough to make it wet.

Here is what it looks like after you stamp them. Let them dry before chalk them

Then take your stamp and press it on the bleach soaked paper towel.

Then press your stamp on the cardstock.

Here is what it looks like after you stamp them. Let them dry before chalk them

Then take your chalks and color them. I used several colors on one to make it look more like a real fall leaf.

Then I cut mine out. You can actually just do them on the cardstock or cut them out. Leaving them on your cardstock would be like making your own patterned paper.

Then I used some Glimmer Mist to add a little sparkle.

Here are the finished leaves.

Noah Walking & Urban Anthology DT Call

Noah started walking last night I have pictures to show. He would sit on the learning chair and get up and take a few steps. It was so cute. He is trying to do more today. I have been cleaning my entire house. I started in the kid's rooms and worked my way to the outside. Wow I got a lot done.

I just read their blog Urban Anthology is having a "Urban Anthology's Got Talent" Design Team Call. This is exciting. I tried the last time but with Noah being so little I didn't have the time. But now that he is bigger I do have the time. I'm going to go for this and pray this is in God's will for me. It will be fun!

Good Morning! Today is a rainy day here. Which I love because it is a good day to scrap. I'm working on my next LEO challenge over at Willow Traders It is to use a edge and I have just the paper and photos for this. I'll post it when I'm done.

Later today we are hoping to go to a Pumpkin patch but will see how the weather is.

Here is another sketch from Sketchy Thursdays by Diana This is my favorite of the 3 I have done. This is another one of Noah helping himself to corn that hasn't even been cooked yet. Not all of my layouts are of Noah I'm just trying to get his album caught up and sketches help (thanks Diana).

The weather here is just beautiful it is like fall. Can't wait to see the leaves change and get some fall pictures.

Sketchy Thursdays sketch

Here is another layout I did for Sketchy Thursdays. This is Noah being cute. I used College Press Jackson Lodge patterned paper and Kaiser rhinestones.

On another note, I started canning peaches today. I'm hoping to finish them tomorrow. Besides making jelly this is the only other thing I can. Faith likes to help. I had to take her to the doctors today. She has been complaining of her belly hurting. She had an x ray so will see. Noah is teething and very crabby.

Vacation to Virginia

We are back from a great vacation. We went to Virginia Beach, Busch Garden, Water Country, and Colonial Williamsburg. We had so much fun. The kids loved all the rides and they got to meet Elmo and all his friends. The water park was very refreshing on those hot days.
