LGS - August Week 3 Sketch TEAM A - Wild at Heart

Hi there

We are officially into the THIRD Week of August WOW!!!
TEAM A has a NEW sketch up
Wild at Heart 
This photo was taken on the beach, while we were camping at Arrowhead Provincial Park 
~ my son face bombed the photo - silly Boy!
Looking all Rockstar LoL
PH collection works well for this beach theme
I added burlap ribbon for texture
He truly is :   Wild at Heart
I air misted my title with three different colours 
and used the coordinating colour to faux stitch each letter
I also faux stitched a heart in behind the word Heart

 I created this cluster with washi tape covered tags and mist
word stickers, badge and word arrow
I love that BOY
 I used my TH mask and Mister Huey's Mist along with some Stickles.
I will agree;  the weather has challenged us this year, but we can honestly say

Here is the FUN Sketch

I can't wait to see your take on this sketch

ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday REVEAL - #i {mustache} U... 2 always B SILLY

Hi there

[ and the start of my holidays part 2 ]
PLUS a Brand NEW ScrapMuch? Sketch
here is my REVEAL
#i {mustache} U...2 always B  SILLY
giggle giggle giggle
The last week of July, my entire family went camping
in Niagara Falls - and it rained EVERYDAY!
From severe Thunder storms, to constant mist
we started to get a little SILLY !
What better way to be SILLY then with a stick-on MUSTACHE!?

When I received my ScrapMuch? August Monthly Premium Kit
jillibean SOUP; Spicy Social Soup
I knew it was perfect!!
#i  {mustache} U...2 always B  SILLY
The title was fitting for these SILLY photos!
A mix of Thickers, FP sticker Fundamentals, Beanboard Alphas,
with wooden veneer # and MS white texture effect.
I had to add in the retro wooden typewriter
(and of course the "said" mustache)
 to add to the "retro" I dusted off my Epiphany Pendant
( I haven't used it in AGES!! )
with cardstock and FP letters.
I added twine (from my kit) with button brads.
I placed my banner above "FAMILY"
SiLLY FAMILY - we were!!
I hand stitched some fancy mustaches
and Ronna introduced me, to the triple stitch on the Pfaff
(it resembles denim stitching but in white)
I fussy cut the social tab
- my little guy is so SOCIABLE
and we're connected

Here is the fab SKETCH
ScrapMuch? Team A week 2

TBT - Just's 5o'clock somewhere - LGS + The Studio Challenges

Hi there!

Throw BACK Thursday
this photo of my lil'sister and I
at  Disney's Grand Floridian - Disney World
taken about 18 years ago
[ we haven't changed a bit - right?! ]
I'm Just's 5o'clock somewhere
I love this MME Collection but wanted to tone it a little with some Gesso, 
- just enough to have my picture pop.
This resort is stunning, and  right across from Magic Kingdom.
I love that the "U" resembles a glass
It was so hot and only 11 o'clock-ish
We had decided firmly, we needed some refreshing strawberries..
...or strawberry margarita(s)!!  wink wink
They were so smooth!
You now the ones, you take 2 sips
and your "little" glass is empty!?!!
a little red to get those fancy drinks to pop!
add some silhouette cut files, buttons
and PH 3D stickers - perfect
and some Bling - for a girly layout

I followed this Great sketch over at
LGS week 2
[ it's not my week but had to do this sketch ]
combined with
Today's challenge is all about Buttons! We want to see the creative ways you use buttons on your layouts!

I can honestly say,
it feels like just a few years ago
this photo was taken - HA!

Let's Get Sketchy August Week 1 REVEAL - Look Whooooo Graduated

Hi there 

It's August ( WOW already!)
summer is FLYing by...
it's New month and a Brand NEW sketch up!
here is my Reveal:
Look whooooo Graduated
in June, my son Graduated Senior Kindergarten!!
There is a few little innuendos  
hidden within my layout:
("who" has five o's - he's 5, 
the owl - he always says who-who
glasses - he started wearing them entering SK,
white texture effect stars - he's MY shining star!)

This MME Collection is perfect for a boy LO
here are some close ups:
the title is a silhouette cut file using two different fonts,
and I layered them.
I cut several pairs of glasses and layered them to give
them some thickness, attaching them with a hemp double-bow
(on the owl eyes [patterned paper] I used glossy accents so they popped!
and of course I machine stitched.

Isn't this lil'owl COOL!? Like Will Smith Cool - from
"Fresh Prince" - giggle giggle

Here is the great sketch by Brenshevia
LGS August Week 1
I hope I have inspired YOU to play along.

Hi there

It's FRIDAY and that means
it's a NEW
I made a little move over to
ScrapMuch? Design Team 
(Team A Reveals the first and third Friday of the month
but the exciting part is the 1st is always a double LO)
2"lips" in Ottawa
Three years ago, we spent a few days at the Tulip Festival in Ottawa.
It was so FUN - my little guy is such a Trooper!
(Joaquin was sick with an ear infection)
I used Gesso +  Jamie 6x6 stencil and overlapped with Cherry Cobbler ink
This cluster is a Silhouette Cut File, fussy cut lips,
Foam Thickers and OA mini-Alphas
*giggle giggle
love you more
I continued with the yellow floss and swirled it behind the flower.
I added the Wood Veneer Coin to the camera viewfinder
wooden veneer coins
I heart my Boys!
These paper flower embellished with MME brads
and [heart] coin is the perfect touch
