my BOYS - LGS February Week 3 - DESIGN TEAM A REVEAL

Hi there 

I am sharing my
Let's Get Sketchy
Design Team A REVEAL
February Week 3
This picture was taken when we visited Ottawa,
look how little my boy was.
Yet all grown up and taking it all in.
We're from a small northern town so this was a BIG deal
for him.
 My heidi swapp sticker title
is just perfect to complete this page
 I attended a Stampin'Up demo and we made these bows
a while back and finally had an opportunity to use it.
I turned this close up to black and white
so you could see my second flag strip
I embossed a piece of plastic with my large
polka dot folder
When you look at it,
half is shiny
but I couldn't photograph without using B&W

here is the FUN Sketch by Shirley:
LGS FEB week 3
This sketch was screaming Mickey Mouse
and yet I ended up scrapping in BOYS!!

Now it's YOUR turn
I can't wait to see what you create

REAL boy kisses - ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Design Team REVEAL - February 13

Hi there

Friday the 13th
- are you superstitious??
In Port Dover, Ontario they celebrate Harley Davidson style

Today, I am sharing my
Sketch-y Friday
Design Team 
REAL boy kisses
It's TRUE!!!  I have FINALLY started on our Disney trip from 2013.
As the story goes, my plan was to start March 2013, at my 3 day
scrappy retreat.
Only to discover (once I arrived 4.5 hours from home) it was still 
sitting in a bag on my dining room table [she giggles]
For those who know me, know I lug this bag around every where with great intentions...
Here is one (of many) to come.
We were in Disney downtown
and my lil'guy and I stopped for rest
and REAL boy kiss

I created using Studio Calico and different coloured cardstock, with different cut files.
I dipped into my Disney World stickers and
Mickey Mouse pins.

Here are some close ups:
 My title is 3 different Silhouette cut file fonts, adding  Glossy Accents
to boy for some shine.
 Walt Disney World is so FUN
 My new "& clips" (are FAV - for right now)
used my TH Tiny Attacher and added the MM pin
for a splash of metal

Here is the sketch by Laura Whitaker:

Now it's your turn!
I can't wait to see what YOU create

LOVE - Stick it Down February GUEST DESIGNER

Hi there!!

I am just thrilled
to be 
with the
Design Team
Here is my Single Page REVEAL: 
I have been saving this for 6 years now, it was time to STICK it DOWN  *she winks
 I'm a sketch-y kinda Gal - when I saw this sketch, I knew exactly what I was going to create.
  I needed to flip the sketch to work for my page but still kept true to it.
 This is my little guy's very first hand and footprint
valentine card - he was just 4 months old.

Here are some close ups:

The title was perfect for my page
I added bubbles to my heart "o"

I had printed the story of our little crafty adventure,
It reads:
Happy Valentine's Day
As we celebrate Joaquin's first Valentine's, I thought
we'd do something special for you!!
[ I'll keep it short ]
I created using My Mind's Eye.  My cascading hearts are layered and stitched,
to give some depth
I used Glossy Accents on these hearts to match my page.
My journal reads:
Enjoy his very first foot print and hand print
Seal with a kiss

Here is the sketch:
February Single Sketch
Now it's your turn.
I can't wait to see what YOU create

acute one - Let's Get Sketchy DT REVEAL Feb week 1

Hi there!!

Happy February 2nd
 Ground Hog Day
~ let's hope he sees his shadow
(fingers crossed)

I am sharing my 
February Week 1
Team A
acute one
Remember the days when you could bathe your babe in the sink?!
I bathed mine in the bathroom sink until he really didn't fit any more (+ 6 months)
My son is just a two weeks old here
I never used a wipe on his "fresh" bottom, until he was 2 months old
We had a "SPA" routine for every diaper change.
Calm spa music, lavender and warm water
I do EVERYTHING over the TOP!
"acute one"  felt letters from my stash
acute triangles - fitting title!
I had this cute EK Success bathtub in my stash way back from my baby shower
I added the Calico wooden veneer hearts because bath time
is always full of love and fun
I monogrammed his towel using Fancy Pants mini alphas  
In my stash, I also had an announcement metal button.
I up-cycled some silver foil (from my can of Orangina)
and embossed it, enhancing the silver taps on the bathtub.
darling right?!

Here is this weeks sketch by JENESSA FRANCO :

I can't wait to see what YOU do with this SKETCH
Remember to LINK UP

Good Luck!
