School Days - Stuck?! Sketches March 1st

Hi there!!

I absolutely LOVE this
sketch over at 

I decided to do a fun page with 
my Littles' school proofs
(I always have and now... I am now told it's "tradition"
- this is my last year of ordering pictures
not a fan of dated blue backgrounds without a choice)
School Days
 This sketch is so perfect for docmenting school proofs,
some layers, polaroid tabs and a super fun title.
I had my Little date and thumb print his page.
This simple  but perfect page is complete.

Here are some close ups:
 A fun 3D sticker phrase, my Girl (Ronna)
shared with me.
 I layered, distressed and inked to give some fun to each photo
 A journal-ing tag tucked in behind with all his Grade 3 info,
tucked in a "3" and an apple button
Here is another photo of the matching clip

Here is Lauras' sketch:

J & L - Celebrate - Little Red Wagon #383

Hi there!!

This past weekend we were
blessed to attend 
a DOUBLE engagement party
for our dear friends

I wanted to document and gift
their special time
and thought I would work on canvas.
J & L
 I choose to work in black and white.  This will keep it neutral allowing it 
to be hdisplayed all year round or any where in their home.
The Canvas Frame is 8 x 10 from
Momenta - I turned it vertical.
I kept it simple as I wanted to photo as my focal point.

Here are some close ups:
 J & L foam Thickers and Momenta embellishments.
I added some Gems to the flowers to give a little Bling.
 I added this swirl bracket of Say it with Pearls
- so pert for this project.
Here you can see the photo acetate (this is used so dusting / cleaning 
will not harm the photo over time)
I edged the photo with acrylic paint and
cascaded some Gems

I also whipped up a card
I wanted to do a dreamy card
because dreams do come true!!
Then celebrate
It's been a bit since I joined the girls over at
~  a visit was long over do!
Their challenge #383 is using Aquamarine!

Thank you for stopping by

SUPPLIES:  Momenta Creative Canvas (chalkboard) and embellishments, acrylic paint,
photo acetate, Say it with Pearls, Gems, foam Thickers, Zip Dry adhesive.

my friend 
shared an amazing sketch with them
 For my Little's 7th BIRTHday we did the Minecraft theme
in a bowling alley
It's kinda a BIG deal...lucky #7
He is the seventh grandchild and our favorite number!
Plus I am little behind, as I recently 
organized all his books in order and discovered I was missing this one - yikes!
(he always has 2 parties, one with his friends at home and a family party - our family 
live 3+ hours away)
(*note to self:  hard to get good pictures in a bowling alley!!)

Here are some close ups:
 I print and cut this awesome title and tucked in a Creeper
- very fitting for his party!
I tucked in a square (as Minecraft is all about squares)
 A matching journal-ing tag (my goal for 2017 is  "write it down")
Here is a good look at the paint boarder on the photos.
My attempt of a background cutfile.
In my head they were Creepers - but my Little informed
me it's just cool LoL

love - Stuck?! Sketches Feb 15th

Hi there!

It's February and this is heart month!
is in the air and I'm back

Here is my take on the 
 It's not often that the Mr. and I get to play Grown-ups
(mostly by choice) but when we do we "milk-it"
Here is a photo from our Valentine's dinner.
We played around with anew app and 
and changed our photo to

Here are some close ups:

The collection is mostly My Mind's Eye; Cupid's Arrow No.14
The paper my BFF stitched with hearts as a gift for me
(perfect for our Valentines page)
Silhouette cut file title
and a rub-on

 some Flair - fitting DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU
A journal tag - my goal for 2017 is to journal every page.
As we (my Little and I) were looking back on pages - he didn't know the story or memory of why 
I had to document that photo /memory.
Here's to 2017 ~ dating and journal-ing
I had this heart tag in my stash. 
I filled each heart with cardstock and /or stickers
A lot of stitching on this page - I love the look!!  I triple
stitched my photo to give it a little "pop" and boarder.
I used my JOT self  adhering stencil
and what a perfect way to position
your finishing touches.

Here is my starting point:
