Another great sketch from Sketch N Scrap. It was perfect for continuing our Seaside, Oregon vacation pictures. Not only that but you will see another layout completed by my 9 year old daughter using the same sketch. She has shown an interest in scrapbooking and of course I will encourage that! You'll see down below that I created a work space for her in my craft room. Now I have a scrapping buddy!!!

The Sketch:

My Take:

Cricut Cartridges Used:
Life's a Beach: Coral and Title

My Daughter's Take:
She has been begging to try entering one of the challenges that I like to do, so I promised her I would enter this one in the Sketch N Scrap challenge this month. I think she did a pretty great job! Of course I may be a little biased.

Till next time,



Last summer my husband and I went out shooting with some friends. This was my first time ever shooting a gun, a real gun that is. My husbands friend is a police officer, which made me feel much safer I think than I would have on our own. He knew what he was doing and knew how to be safe with guns. It was a very cool experience. I can't say that I am ready to take the gun world by storm, but at least I know what it feels like to shoot one. 
This week over at Sketch N Scrap they have a great sketch that I decided to use with my shooting pictures.

The Sketch:

My Take:

To Create this layout:

DCWV: The Midnight Berry Stack
Graphically Speaking Cricut Cartridge: Absolutely Fearless words
Phrases Cricut Cartridge: :You Go Girl title
Stand and Salute Cricut Cartridge: Rifle Frame

Thank you for stopping by!

Till next time,
