Me & My MEN

With the weather being gloomy I have been scrapping some of the professional pictures we took before Thanksgiving.  I have found some fabulous looking sketches and I have the paper so I went to town on them.
This sketch is from My Scrap & More, and is only their 4th sketch and they get better and better each week.  Of course having some extra time really helps me to be able to do these.
Here is the sketch:

and here is my take on it:

I used:
Maya road buttons finished off with twine
EK success punch
Fishtail flags from Dienamics
and Farm House -- Market Square paper

Food Time (at Thanksgiving dinner)

I used the sketch from Sketches in Thyme

I used Authentique's Thanksgiving fall paper and backed it in kraft paper, a calendar outlined in a hemp braid, Studio Calico Wood Veneer octagons with Prima letters inside.  I also used a burlap pleat on the top.  The pictures are from our Thanksgiving dinner at Olive Garden on the  Saturday before Thanksgiving.

Here is what I did:

This weekend instead of going Black Friday shopping I went to a Black Friday Crop and this is one of the layouts I did.
Just got some professional pictures of the MEN after I bribed them, I only get these about every 5 years but I will take that.
Anyway I used Prima's Tim Keeper Cog type embellishments, twine, cardstock and thickers scrabble like letters.  I also used the sketch from Boys Rule Kits.

Here is the sketch:

and here is what I came up with:

Adventure (in Ireland)


Still working on Ireland.  I used the sketch from My Scraps & More2 and it worked perfectly with Bo Bunny's new Travel Line.  I found it came together quickly and the only thing I added that was not from the line was the wooden button with twine.  I can't wait for the next sketch tomorrow.

and here is how mine looks

Hard to tell but every other square at the bottom is popped up along with the camera and the arrow on top.

Hi Bloggers,

I am catching up from not blogging in a while.  My son never sends me Halloween pictures, but this year he did so I decided to scrap it since I had some Halloween paper and wanted to try the sketch at My Scraps & More.  This is the first sketch on the blog and a new one I will follow.

Here is the sketch: 

I did the layout and found out the only reason he dressed was so he could go get the deal at Chipotle.  I thought his make-up looked spectacular and work enjoyed how this "Zombie" looked.

I had fun with the stickers and buttons.

Thanksgiving cards for my friends

Hello Everyone,

I have been slacking and not posting, well I am kicking myself and setting goals for me to get busy.   I have been scrapping and making cards but have not been showing you, so forgive me.

The other day I sat down and made 6 Thanksgiving cards.  I wanted to get these in the mail since that Holiday will be here before you know it.  I used Jillibean Soup Thanksgiving Paper, their accessories and their ideas, with my modifications to come up with these cards.  I love the fall colors and the differences in all of them.

Enjoy and be creative.
