Weekend Work

This weekend I decided I needed some time to scrap so I started to get some sketches and dig through my pictures.  This is what I did.

First I did the sketch for Boys Rule Scrapbooking Kit.  I used Simple Stories the Awesome Line and it is fabulous, she has everything you need in the kit.  The site has a sketch which I used and came up with this.

and my take on this:

I call it "1 of a Kind"
This is a shot of Matthew when he was 17 and going to visit JWU during his Senior Year.

Go try the sketch and have some fun with it.

A Sketches in Thyme Design Team Call!!

Hi Everyone,

I am sharing this DT call since it is one of my favorite sites, as you know I have guested there and would love to become a maven. 

A Sketches in Thyme Design Team Call!!

Would you like to be a Sketchy Maven? The 6 month term for our talented Mavens is drawing to a close, and while some will be staying on, we are looking for new members to join our Sketches in Thyme design team! If you enjoy creating layouts from sketches, participating in blogs and motivating others to take part in challenges, this might be your chance to be a part of our Design Team! Your term would run May-October 2012, and you would be asked to complete 2 layouts per month. If you would like a chance to be considered, here's what you need to do:

1-Create a new layout based on our sketch below.

2-Post about our DT call on your blog, along with your take on our sketch.

3-Leave a comment here by April 20th telling us that you would like to be considered for the DT, along with a link to your blog post. Be sure to include your email address so we can get in touch with you!!

Don't forget, our Design Team Call runs until April 20th, can't wait to see your take on our fun sketch!!

So here is my take on it after I turned the sketch to look like this.

This i the way I put it and I realize it is on it's side, but I used Nikki Sivils new line of paper, some twine, green card stock, some brads and thickers.  So here is what I came up with.

Good luck to all who try out.

Back to MSW Blog

Hello my name is Karen aka Soccerboyzmom.  I am so excited to part of the team as a Card Designer.
In case you don't know I have been scrapping seriously for about 12 years to catch up on my boys lives, sports, and places we have gone.  When I don't scrap them I do the entire family or my 2 beagles (who have become great subjects to photo). 
I make cards and altered gifts for my friends, so making cards for MSW is right down my alley. 

Here is the April 15th sketch from My Sketch World (link: )

Here is my example using the sketch:

I used Jillibean Soup Paper, flowers are Maya Road, letters are October Afternoon and the banners are cut out using the dies from My Favorite Things.  Of course I am using the fabulous sketch that Lucy drew for us to use.

Thanks for being here and now its time to head to Scarlett Salamone blog and check out her creation.

I would love for you to become a follower and see what I do.

Easter Tags that are Tim Holtz inspired

Happy Easter everyone!

I thought I would share the 2 tags I made with the help of Tim Holtz idea.  I gave these to my son's girlfriends with their baskets.  They were impressed and they were easy to do.

Here they are: 

and this one

I am quite proud of them.
