Let's Scrap 12-1 Sketch

Oh wow... December 1st!!!  Where has this year gone???  This and our 15th sketch are the last of this year!!   I adore this sketch because it is so versatile for either a 2 page or 1 page layout...

I went with a one page just because I didn't have enough pics to cover a 2 page, but I do plan on using this in the future for a 2 pager..  I had these cute pics from the park of my nephews and some Echo Park playground paper that went fabulously together...

Hop on over to Let's Scrap for some great inspiration and a fabulous prize from Crafty Classes Online!!

Sketches in Thyme #173

I am back again with Sketches in Thyme and our fabulous leader sent us some goodies to work with from Close To My Heart.  I got these yummy Sangria papers and knew these pictures of the boys would be really cute with them.

These 2 love to jump on the couch and "fly" and have now asked Santa for a trampoline for Christmas.  Hopefully broken bones will few and far between :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful Turkey Day!!

Oct 15 Reveal - Let's Scrap Sketches

Hard to believe we are in the middle of October with 10 Fridays until Christmas!!  YIKES!!!

It is also hard to believe that I am back with our fabulous mid-month sketch for Let's Scrap and I just adore this sketch and knew I had the perfect pictures to use with it...

We went to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge earlier this year and while neither of us are fans of heights, we rode The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel, the largest east of the Mississippi... while you can see for miles it still really freaked us out - hahaha  I cut these cute ferris wheel's on the cricut and then colored with some markers and added stickles on top.

Be sure to check out the other fabulous layouts by our amazing design team and enter your own for a chance to win a fabulous prize for The Studio 29 Design.

Let's Scrap - Oct 1st reveal

Wow October is here, where has the rest of the year gone??   Since it is the 1st of the month I am here with the Let's Scrap reveal and we have a fabulous prize from Stampendous up for grabs

I love this sketch, but just did not have enough pictures to go with a 2 pager, but I did have this fabulous picture of my niece and her boyfriend that I have been dying to scrap so I adjusted to a 1 page layout.  In case you were wondering this fabulous paper is from Kaisercraft called Shine Bright.

I do hope you will join us for this sketch and the one coming on the 15th as well!!  Thanks for stopping by!!  Happy Fall Y'all!!

Sketches in Thyme Sketch #165

I am back a little this week with my reveal for Sketches in Thyme and knew the twins T-ball pics would be a great choice with all the circles for baseballs... All of our sketch mavens do such a great job with our sketches every month.. Be sure to stop by and check out the other fabulous sketches and enter for a chance at a fabulous prize from Close to My Heart!!!

I even utilized my Silhouette for the title, balls and gloves... I am starting to realize how helpful it can be and it might even keep me from spending so much on supplies.. well maybe not but I do love all the capabilities of it :)

Let's Scrap Reveal...

So my life is finally getting back to normal after my dad's heart surgery... he is doing great and should hopefully get released for driving and most normal activites this week.

Here is our reveal for the 15th of the month over at Let's Scrap and a fabulous prize up for grabs from QKR Stampede.  We had a cool snap this weekend so I thought these pictures from our trip to Gatlinburg last year would get everyone ready for fall and winter weather.  We saw about 8-10" of snow this trip, the most any of us have seen since the blizzard of 1993 so we were like little kids out playing :)

We would love to see your take on the sketch and plus you have a chance to win a great prize!! You have until the end of the month to link up!!

I am back with Sketches in Thyme reveal #161 and we have another fabulous sketch and prize this month from Close to My Heart!!!

I love the sketch this week by Shawn.. there are so many ways you can change it up..

I recently went to a weekend crop where I managed to forget most of my paper other than cardstock and a pack of pattern paper, lucky for me scrappers love to share so I was able to come up with this cute layout of my cousin's dance recital this year.

Let's Scrap - August 15 reveal!!!

It's time for the mid month reveal at Let's Scrap and it is another fabulous sketch and awesome prize!!
This sketch worked great with pictures I have accumulated for the boys first T-ball season.  While the season started off with some chaos by the end of the season I think there was a little better understanding of the game.  They made some great friends from this experience as well.
You have until the 31st of the month to join us!!!

August 1st Let's Scrap reveal

Happy August everyone... can't believe that the summer is coming to an end and school will be starting in a couple weeks.
We have another fabulous sketch this month over at Let's Scrap, I absolutely love the hexagons on here!!!
A few months ago we went to Bellingrath Gardens, which is a beautiful botanical gardens in Mobile, AL, on our way to the beach for the hubs to try out his new camera and for me to learn how to use the old one.   You have to understand that I am a point and shoot girl, I really don't want to haveto be making all kinds of adjustments, I just want to take a picture, but will admit that using the bigger camera was pretty fun.

 Please stop by and join us for this month, we have a great prize from Eureka Stamps up for grabs!!!

Sketches in Thyme #157 - DIXIE

This summer just seems to be flying by!!!  I am already back with Sketches in Thyme this month and we have another fabulous sketch from Shawn Lahr and the chance to win a $15 shopping spree from Chickydoodle, they have all kinds of fun stuff to play with!!!

I took these pictures of my "sister" DIXIE, who is the newest addition at my parents house..  My dad has an affinity for Brittany Spaniels and Dixie Belle is the 6th one to be a part of the family.  She might have my dad wrapped around her little paw ;)
She is a cutie that is for sure and seeing as she is named after my Granny she is definitely a little firecracker!!!

Let's Scrap Sketch reveal and DT Call

Well it is already the 15th of July and we only have 20 Saturdays till Christmas-EEEK!!!  This year is flying by and it is hard to believe that it is time for another DT call at Let's Scrap!!!

Here is our current sketch for July 15th and it is a great one (but when are they not??)

I had these pictures of the twins first year of T-ball and I do realize that one day Cannon will probably want to kill Aunt 'Vanna for doing a page with this picture, but I am sure he laugh about as well.  Picture day was not a fun day for most of the kids cause it was EARLY in the morning and for some reason 4 year olds just were raring to go at the time - hence the cry face  LOL

Let's Scrap July 1st reveal

So who else is having a hard time believing it is already July??!!??  We are already halfway thru the year...yeesh!!!

We have another fabulous sketch this week and an awesome prize as well, a set of stamps from Stampendous!!!  
 Here is my take, I have had this fabulous travel paper from WeR and finally printed some pics that would work well with it.  These are from a little road trip we took to see the NCAA regional gymnastic meet in Auburn (War Eagle!) since both Auburn and Alabama were there.  If you have never been to Auburn, AL and are near by be sure to stop, it is a fabulous college town that still has an old fashioned drug store with the best lemonade around!!

 I hope you will play along with us, there will be another sketch out the 15th too!!!

I am back this month with sketch #153 by the fabulous Shawn Lahr over at Sketches in Thyme

Shawn does a fabulous job designing one page sketches that are so versatile. I had these cute school day pictures of my cousin's children, Thomas and Laura and found some Bo Bunny Ad Lib paper in my stash (slowly but surely I am working my way thru some old paper that I have been hoarding).  I fell in love with the yellow background because it really made the pics pop.  Be sure to join us this month with this or any or all of the sketches for a chance at a fabulous prize from  DIY Crafty Scraps.. at $25 gift certificate.. I just check out their etsy shop and they have some great goodies!!!

This sketch is really versatile, you can flip it or use either side for a single page layout

May 1st Reveal

May 1st???  Really, this year has absolutely flown by and with that these cuties turned 4 years old in February and this sketch at Let's Scrap was the perfect layout to document their 3rd year.

I used collage prints so I could get as many photos as possible to document their year, sometimes I will cut them apart and get lots of little pictures to play with


Be sure to stop by the Let's Scrap blog and check all the other fabulous DT takes with this sketch, those girls will blow you away with their creativity!!!  We also have a fabulous prize to give away as well from Bugaboo Stamps !!

1st ER Visit - Sketches in Thyme

It is a wet day here in Alabama but this layout should make you smile.  I am so lucky to be on the Sketches in Thyme design team where we have not just one but 4 fabulous weeks of sketches!!!

I knew these pictures would be perfect for the sketch this week
Deacon fell and busted his chin wide open and it required an ER visit and from what I am told it traumatized Mommy and Cannon more than him.  He was such a big boy and didn't even cry when they had to put some stitches in.
We have an awesome prize, so please join us, you can do one or all 4 sketches for more chances to win!!  Thanks for stopping by!!!
