Love Nest layout – Pencillines sketch challenge entry

This is the nest that love built. This is the porch that houses the nest that love built. This is the woman that puts up with the unpainted porch that houses the nest that love built. 😀 Each year doves build a nest in this one corner of our porch. One year, they nested twice. Now, I don’t know if my dh is being sentimental or just using it as an excuse, but he claims that he will not repaint this section of the porch until they stop coming back, because he doesn’t want to risk causing them to nest elsewhere. Not sure how well you can see, but in these photos, the chicks have hatched and have their beaks open, chirping for food.

I created this layout based on the sketch provided on Pencillines for their sketch#228 challenge. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Basic Grey Phoebe “Angel Island” cardstock base
BG Blush “Be Mine” cardstock
BG Blush “Charmed” cardstock
BG Blush “Double Dark” cardstock
Little Yellow Bicycle Twig Chipboard Shapes
LYB Twig Chipboard Sticker
LYB Canvas Stickers – Borders
Pink Paislee Cushies alphas
October Afternoon Mini Market sticker alphas
Distress Ink

Adhesives:

Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro PermaTac
Helmar 450 Quick Dry Liquid
American Crafts This to That foam Dots

Do What? layout – Sketchy Thursdays challenge entry

Here’s Matthew up close and personal. 😀 These were taken when he was just 2 years old. This kiddo loves the camera (unlike Christian…I’m still trying to get shots of him where he isn’t staring at me like I’m an alien!).

I created this layout based on the 3.03 sketch provided on Sketchy Thursdays for their challenge. Everything you see, except the brown alphas and brown cardstock I used to mat the photos, is from Bo Bunny’s gorgeous Garbielle line. I love this beautiful, detailed line and enjoyed further challenging myself to use what seems at first to be a “girly” range on a boy page. This has been a goal of mine since 95% of my crafty goodies tend to be girly, but I have 4 boys and 1 girl! Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Bo Bunny Gabrielle 12×12 papers
American Crafts Brown cardstock
BB Gabrielle stickers
BB Pet Shop sticker alphas
BB Gabrielle “True Friend” cardstock stickers
BB Gabrielle brad
BB Gabrielle chipboard

Adhesives:

Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro PermaTac

How Old Are You? – Sketches in Thyme challenge entry

Here’s another layout I created using the fabulous Stella and Rose collection by My Mind’s Eye. I’ve been very impressed with how well the embellishments coordinate with all of papers. I especially like their new label stickers and metal buttons! The brads for this collection are reminiscent of ones they came out with for the Lost and Found collection. Love them!

For this layout, I again stuck with the “Hazel” range and based it off of the Pagemaps sketch for the Thursday Takes Challenge #38 at Sketches In Thyme:

Materials:

My Mind’s Eye Stella and Rose “Mother” papers
MME Stella and Rose “Mother” transparency
MME S&R “Lovely” label sticker
MME S&R “Fancy” button
MME S&R “Lovely” brads
MME S&R “Memories” trims
Webster’s Pages Storytellers alphas

Adhesives:

Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro PermaTac
Helmar 450 Quick Dry liquid
