Oh Scrappy Day!

I have been scrapping pretty much all morning, with the exception of taking Austin to and from basketball camp, but I did stay and take some pics, so I guess you could say I was thinking about scrapping!
I completed 2 layouts, both sketch challenges! I also used Crate Papers School Spirit Collection on them both. I love this collection!

The first one is for the January 28th sketch at Sassy Lil' Sketches. I am loving their sketches, they are so fun!
The second layout is for a new site to me, Sketchy Thursdays. I saw the sketch and had to play with it!
Earlier this week I had time for scrapping here and there and made the following.
This card I used the first card sketch of the year at My Sketch World and combined it with challenge #4 at Cropstop.
This card was made with another Lucy Chesna sketch from My Sketch World.

And my last thing to share with you today is a layout of DD playing basketball. I did this layout for a sketch challenge ( I flipped it upside down) at Design Dollies.

Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!

Fun at the Dango!

A Sassy Sketch combined with a Few Challenges!

I used the January 21st sketch at Sassy Lil' Sketches ( I love this sketch!) along with Cropstop's Challenge #3, use squares and diecuts. I used a 12x12 piece of cardstock for my square and cut the flower out with my Cricut.

I also combined Scrapdango's library Mystery challenge in with it.

I love the outcome of it!
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with me!

MSW Sketch

Lucy's new sketch is up for the month at My Sketch World and it's amazing, as usual! You can find it HERE . I combined the sketch with the element challenge at Design Dollies and came up with this layout:

I hand cut the red flowers out of felt and then stitched the insides with bakers twine. Since the colors on the flag were red, black and yellow, I wanted to stick with mainly those colors.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with me!

A few Challenges!

I started playing along with a few new blogs this year and have been enjoying their challenges!
For my A Dance With Grandma layout I used and old photo of my Grandma and me at a wedding. I was maybe 11? I used XOXO challenge and lifted Kimmy Jaster. I aso added Stickles to all the flowers for Cropstop's challenge #2. Here is my layout:

I have been loving the sketches at Sassy Lil Sketches and the sketch for Jan. 14th was awesome! Here is my card:

Design Dollies

My friend Wendi made it on the DT at Design Dollies so I thought I would check out their blog and they had a color challenge going on. So of coarse, I played along! Here are the colors:

and here is my layout:
I painted the chipboard hearts red and then covered them with Glossy Accents. I took pompoms and added them with hot glue to the ends of my fiber bow and added to the top of the larger heart.

Had a blast with this one!

This was the first time I played along and I had so much fun playing with Sassy Lil Sketches first sketch of 2011! I used the Rusted Sun line by Fancy Pants and also snuck in an old piece of Cosmo from my stash. I couldn't resist adding the swimsuits and trunks for the banner. Thanks for the fun sketch!

First Challenge at CropStop

I played along with CropStop's New Challenge Blog! Their first challenge was a sketch and it has a banner so how could I resist?! I used a pic of Austin and turned the sketch side ways. Here is my layout:

Thanks for the fun sketch!
