Perfect to Me – Let’s Capture These Sketches #104

Ness created a fabulous sketch for our dt work on Let’s Capture These Sketches this week. When I saw it, I decided Webster’s Pages All About Me would be perfect for it. As it happens, Webster’s Pages challenge for this month is to use their All About Me line and include journaling about the person or people featured on the layout.

One of my goals for this year has been to journal on my pages by hand more often and also scrap pages that aren’t just the happy moments. I chose this picture to scrap the moment rather than a baby picture since it’s not very obvious that he’s missing toes on this right foot in the vast majority of photos and this one captures his true nature. He’s my easy going, always smiling, happy-go-lucky kiddo with a magnetic personality that everyone is drawn to. The journaling towards to top is about his personality. The journaling at the bottom talks about the day he was born, though I had to shorten it to fit. Toes or no toes he is and always will be Perfect To Me.

Prickly Kisses – Sketchy Thursdays and Bo Bunny Challenges

Love when things just come together so naturally. 😀

When I saw the 10.6 sketch at Sketchy Thursdays, I knew it would be perfect for this set of photos I’ve been wanting to scrap with Christian, who was 4 months old at the time, and Larry. We just can’t resist those chubby cheeks of his! Anyway, Larry’s kisses tend to get pretty prickly especially if it isn’t immediately after he shaves. Christian weathers though fine now, but wow when he was an infant, he’d wail for me to rescue him after just a kiss or two! lol

In the photos, he’s wearing a cutie one piece outfit and is wrapped in a matching muslin blanket which he loved, so I wanted to bring out the colors from the patterns. Bo Bunny’s Welcome home from their last release was just perfect! I anxiously stalked the mailman waiting for the papers, trinkets, brads and noteworthy pack to be delivered so I could get started! The colors and designs on the papers were so much prettier than I’d expected. Gorgeous!!! BB’s current layout challenge is to add dimension to your page, rather than a sketch, so I was able to combine these two challenges. Here’s what I came up with for my layout using the fab BB papers and embellies and the wonderful Sketchy Thursdays’ sketch:


Bo Bunny Welcome Home papers
BB Welcome Home trinkets
BB Welcome Home Noteworthy diecut journal pages
BB Welcome Home Brads
BB Welcome Home jewels
BB Welcome Home diecut sticker
Maya Road chipboard alphas
Folk Art Acrylic paint
Tim Holtz Distress Ink

There She Goes – Lily Bee Sketch Challenge

Wow! Ask and they deliver! Just last Monday on the Lily Bee Blog, they asked what we, as the readers, would like to see on their blog. A bunch of us made suggestions and one thing that came up frequently was challenges. Then, just 2 days later, what did I see? An awesome sketch challenge!!! 😀 To qualify, just use the sketch as your inspiration and use at least 2 Lily Bee products. Easy, right?

Since the sketch incorporates some fab circle elements, I immediately thought of these photos of Madison that I took last year. We were at Taten’s football game and she was bored. Larry jokingly told her to run a few laps. She happily jogged along chatting w/the other runners and jogging in place at times waiting for someone to catch up (all the other runners that day were adults looking for a bit of exercise!). Before we knew it, she’d run 4 laps around the track which is 1 mile, so we had her stop. lol Here’s my take on the sketch (the 3 paper circles and 1 stitched one representing her 4 laps):

Sisters and Friends – DT layout for Let’s Capture These Sketches

I abreviated the title for the post. My layout is actually titled Sisters by Marriage, Friends by Choice.

For my take on sketch #102 on Let’s Capture These Sketches, I went with the gorgeous Vintage Blue papers by Glitz. It was my first time working with their papers…and I am in LOVE! Gorgeous prints, perfect weight and did I mention GORGEOUS?!! 🙂

There is also a mini challenge on Scrapbookers Anonymous to use a long title, so I decided to combine that challenge with my dt work for lcts. Here’s what I came up with:

Here’s the fab sketch by Charlotte that I got to work with:
