ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Team A REVEAL - The BIG 6

Hi there

Happy Halloween
It's Friday and here is your
Team A
The BIG 6
My lil' guy just had to have an "only Sponge Bob page
This was the PERFECT sketch to showcase this paper
Left side close-up

Right side close-up
As you may know, Sponge Bob SquarePants lives in a Pineapple under the sea...
so bubbles are a MUST for this LO
I used this TIP and TECHNIQUE
shared by Laura Whitaker
I choose 3 different sized circles and blue acrylic paint
Perfect RIGHT?!
 I love the use of a VERY OVER SCALE TITLE
more appropriate "The BIG 6"
layered and stitched
 A DIY "SQUARE" flair
My lil' guy is so serious...making his wish!!
I love this kid.

We can't get enough of Sponge Bob SquarePants
he is so funny!!!

Here is your DOUBLE sketch

Remember to play along,
for your chance to WIN

Need more inspiration??

TBT ~ circa 1989

Hi there

Here is scrapping with pre-digital photos
Throw Back Thursday
I didn't title or journal this one...
 hahaha!!  So posed and so 80's
Mom sitting and her Girls surrounding her
[ the guy would hold the button until the perfect picture was captured ]
I love this BoBunny collection
 Bazzil flower cluster with BoBunny sticker centre,
some pins and baker's twine
 a layered tag with some Bling
3 star brads. and an embossed star,
some fussy cutting and Knock-out punch
The patterned edge is CraftGeek Roll-it using the star pattern
[ I won it at a retreat ]

Oh I remember this day clearly!!  
We gathered at Olan Mills Studios LoL - who didn't have photos there??!

LGS REVEAL Team A - thankful + LCOM October Color Spot

Hi there

Team A
(I can't believe we're into our 3 week in October!??)
This time of year, we have so much to thankful for,  especially 
getting the entire family together to eat!!
This handmade paper is perfect for any Fall layout.
In 2011, I hosted Thanksgiving dinner.
 We are so thankful for family gatherings and the spread we're
able to provide.
I went a little crafty and fancy
 This is one of the leaves I decorated with liquid pearls,
the grey Say-it-with-pearls accent the date.
Traditions Home Appetite Nice Kindness Family Unforgettable Love
To go with the leaf name tags (I made), I splurged and bought a pricey swan-gourd center piece
I love succulent plants and still have this.

TBT - 25th - ScrapMuch? + LM #212 Anything Goes

Hi there!

It's not my DT week
but when I saw this
sketch...I couldn't stop "drooling"!!!
 ~ Organizing my crafty space (I do that a lot ) LOL
I came across these photos, from my 25th BIRTHday
Silhouette cut file and anchor as my "arrow" 
pointing to US - SMOKING our cigars!
...for my 25th I HAD to eat 
fresh lobster and smoke a cigar
[ strange since we are both NON-smokers ]
with my Daddy,
in beautiful Nova Scotia.
I'm not really sure why I had this request but I have the BEST Daddy
a girl could ask for - he obliged!
This Carta Bella kit came with a lobster!!!
Look how young my Daddy is - WOW!
and me with glasses! Ha!

Look at this GREAT Sketch:
