Happiness – Layout for Sketchabilities sketch #92

This is one of my favorite pictures of my youngest son. I love how joyful he is over absolutely nothing and I can’t help but smile every time I look at it. 😀 He’s 3 months old in this photo and I can’t believe that in a week, he’ll be 3 years old already!

For my take on Sketchabilities sketch #92, I used Webster’s Pages‘ New Beginnings. It’s the only other baby collection by WP since Lullaby Lane, so I was delighted when Brandin released it last season. It’s also perfect for Spring and Easter layouts! I combined the fabulous sketch #92, with the WP “Contain it” challenge, which is to use either their new baggies or their mini file folders and cards on your project. Here’s what I came up with:

Here’s the awesome sketch I used from Sketabilities:

Materials:

Webster’s Pages New Beginnings papers, stickers, trim and mini bag
Webster’s Pages Country Estate Paper
tag and ribbon from my stash

Adhesives:

Scotch ATG
Helmar Zapdots

Last Chance! Only 1 Class Kit Remaining!

These are the 2 pages I created for the September Class Kit at SKWAD (Scrapbook Kits with a Difference). For September, Julianne sent me some lovely Webster’s Pages Girl Land papers and stickers to work with, along with some flowers, buttons, twine, a pin, a crown chippie and a doily. All class kits come with everything you need to create the pages shown (except basic materials like scissors, pens, ink and glitter glue) and step by step instructions on how to recreate the examples. I’m very late getting this posted, so if you’d like the class kit shown below, please hurry! There’s only 1 left! CLICK HERE to go to the listing at SKWAD.

Just Yawning Layout – Sketchy Thursdays and Get Picky entries

Wow! So many wonderful challenges available this month! There seems to be something for everyone! For this layout, I decided to combine some of them. I started with the awesome 8.4 sketch from Sketchy Thursdays, then added the inspiration challenge from Get Picky, then since I was going with Sassafras papers and embellies, I could also throw in their August challenge criteria…3 or more different alphas. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials: Sassafras Mix and Mend Handmade Hobnob paper
Sassafras Mix and Mend journaling Tags
Sassafras Mix and Mend Sweet Treats (diecut stickers)
Sassafras Kelly Green Glitter Alpha stickers
Sassafras Chocolate Glitter Alpha stickers
Sassafras Yellow Paper Alpha stickers
Sassafras Blue In a Stitch Blossom
Twine from the Twinery
Webster’s Pages storytellers alpha sticker (just the question mark)

This is the Sketchy Thursdays sketch:

Hurry! Hop on, Mom – Layout

For this layout I combined the July color challenge (with a twist) on Paper Secrets with a gorgeous sketch#88 by Ness on Let’s Capture These Sketches.

Be sure to stop by these great sites for some fun and inspiring challenges! Let’s Capture These Sketches features a new card and layout sketch each week. Card sketches are usually posted on Fridays and Layout sketches are posted on Saturday. Hope you stop by and play along! Paper Secrets features 4 new monthly challenges which are posted on the 1st of every month and all entries are due by the end of the month. This month, we have a color challenge, a manufacturer challenge, a card sketch and a layout sketch! Each completed project that is posted to the gallery gives you one entry for the monthly prize…a $25 gift certificate to the PS store!

These photos are from when Matthew was 2 and Madison was 3. They were pretending that the Earth was melting and they built a rocket ship to the moon. Surrounded by these toys…their space craft…they urgently yelled for me to hop on before it’s too late! I teasingly told them that there wasn’t any room, so Matthew frantically tried to grab and shift some objects to make room, not realizing that all he was doing was making it more cramped. He soon gave up. If you look closely at their faces, you can tell Madison didn’t find my teasing so amusing especially when Matthew gives up his expansion efforts and I tell them, well, I guess I have to stay here and fry. lol
