Puppy Smooches - Stuck?! Sketches Mar 15th

Hi there!!

I have been creating a little more  - YEAH!!!
My Girl and I are trying re-untie once a week
and joined in on another sketch over at 
Puppy Smooches
 My friend Nancy, shared this super fun patterned paper with me just a few weeks ago! 
I am so happy I got a chance to create with it.
This photo was taken after our last day on
the ski hill for the season.  The sun was shinning bright
(doesn't do so well photographing but my puppy was so happy to 
be back in the car to rest!)
and what's better than puppy smooches?!!

Here are some close ups:
 I mixed my title with a silhouette cutfile title and Thickers
I layered the "puppy" on top of
a dogge bone
 This is the perfect word sticker
LOVE is a four-legged word
I tucked in a dogge bone and paw print.
 This is fun patterned paper but my pictures need
a bit of colour and pop-factor
I tucked in another bone and paw print
I pop-dotted this photo after I wrapped
it with twine and distressed the edges.

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. 

Card:  American Craft cardstock, My Mind's Eye patterned paper and stickers, Stampin'UP twine, Gems

Minecraft - Lasting Memories #333

Hi there!

I am joining the girls over at
Hi LM Gang!!! *waving
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

Hi there!!

Pretty sure it's been raining for
24+ hours
= gloomy days
but PERFECT for paper crafting!!

I put together a
of my Little
(hard to believe he'll be nine later this year)
Silly ADORABLE you
I was recently given this single photo
and had to scrapbook it!!
This kit was perfect for my photo but had to 
customize it and make some changes.
My photo is lengthwise and the kit
shows a horizontal.
I love how it turned out!

Here are some close-ups:
 I didn't use all the pieces and  added some from my stash to 
"make it mine"
and work for this photo.
The mix title of chipboard and a cutfile
is so sweet!
 I added a baby rub-on and his name,
Even at 8 - he can't believe that's him LoL
 I added this printed tag
you are just what I NEED
and some enamel dots

Here is the kit:
