"Sisters" Layout

Hi Scrappers! 

Today I'm sharing with you a layout I did for Scrap Our Stash's March sketch challenge. :) 

Here's my layout:

The challenge was to use this gorgeous sketch by Karan Gerber:
and to add GOLD to your layout. 

It took me a while to embrace the trend of 'gold' but after I started using it, I really have to say I love it!  I want more gold embellies, foil, paper, mist, etc!!! All of it! LOL   Although you can't tell from the photo (it photographed black - bummer) I used gold foil over adhesive flourishes that I added by the flowers.  I also used gold glitter scalloped border strips and gold rimmed brads.

Thank you for stopping by! :)

Miss USA Layout


Here's a fun layout I created with a little help of some fun challenges! :) 
 I made this layout for Scrap Our Stash's stash challenge.  The challenge is to use an item for each letter of the word - STENCIL.  I used:

E-enamal dots
C-chipboard (from Creative Embellishments)
L-line paper.

I also combined it with A Cherry On Top's sketch challenge:
 I rotated the sketch to the left.  Also, the bonus was to use some stamping. I used a #hashtag stamp and a date stamp.

Another challenge I combined my layout with was Creative Embellishments.  The challenge was to use this photo below and pick one element to inspire you and to use one of their flourishes.  

I used the flowers to inspire me and added some on my layout along with some Creative Embellishments chipboard flourishes.

I'm On A Roll!! :)

Good Morning!  

I love the days that my mojo tries to run away but just when it's walking out the door… I pull him right back in! LOL  Thanks to the awesome sketches at Page Drafts, I was able to pull my mojo back and get a layout done! :) 
I created this layout for a Pinterest Challenge over at A Cherry On Top.  Here is the photo that inspired me.  I was inspired by the rainbow colors:

Here's the sketch I used from Page Drafts:

And because I was pumped after this layout, I decided to created another one!  Here's my layout I created for the This or That Challenge at A Cherry On Top:
The challenge was to pick between two layouts (the host picked) and scrap lift it.   Here's the layout I picked to lift:
I was so excited to use this October Afternoon paper! I held onto this photo for the prefect "bug" collection and this was it!!  

That's it for now! 

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin'!

"Live It Up" Layout

Hello Scrappers! :) 
Today I'm sharing with you another layout I created this week.  I've had so much fun playing along with a lot of the scrapbook challenges lately!  Challenges really help me get my pages done! :) 

This layout is of my oldest daughter hanging out on the Las Vegas Strip. 

To create this layout, I combined  these challenges:

~ a sketch from STUCK SKETCHES (I rotated it):

~ I used My Mind's Eye collection for the A CHERRY ON TOP's Manufacturer challenge
~ I used circles, gold and bling for the RED CARPET STUDIO'S "87th Acadamy Awards" challenge.
If you love challenges as much as I do make sure you check out these challenges and try them out1 :) 

Happy Scrapping!

Love HIM!!

Hi Scrappers!

Over the weekend I had a fabulous time hanging out it the girls at the Scrap Society's Pink Ladies crop!   I have a few pictures below of our day.  But for now I want to share a couple of layouts and a card I created on at the crop:

Here's a layout I created using a sketch from Let's Scrap's March International scrapbooking day challenge:

Here's the sketch:
 This sketch is a double page sketch but I condensed it to 1 page and flipped it.  I also combined it with Red Carpet Studios challenge #90  "Casablanca" challenge to use Black and white with a pop of another color.

Lastly,  I created this card from my stash for the  Feeling Sketchy card challenge:

Here's the sketch:

Here's another layout I did at the crop.  It's a "selfie I took of myself on the way to the Usher Concert:
I created this one for the Scrap It Girl Selfie challenge and I combined it with another Red Carpet Studio challenge - #91 "My Fair "Lady":

If you would like to join in on these FUN challenges please check out their blogs --

Lastly, here are some photos from the crop:
