Queen of Sheba

I have a great friend who adopted two beautiful girls from Ethiopia. Amazing girls, love them both! We went out to dinner with them to a place called Queen of Sheba - an Ethiopian restaurant. The girls were able to introduce us to some food from their country. Oh man, I'm in love. So good, I had to scrap about it! To do that, I used DCWV's sketch for their October stack-a-holics challenge.

A Walk in the Woods

I went to a scrapbooking retreat this past weekend. How amazing it was to take a weekend to myself and to spend it doing what I love! It was fabulous. I stayed up late scrapping, woke up early, did my Bible Study, scrapped, had breakfast, scrapped some more, ate lunch, scrapped some more, had dinner, scrapped till late in the night and repeat - for three days! I will share many of those layouts here on my blog over this next week. But, first I will share the layout I completed for the challenge on the Let's Scrap blog. I loved their sketch and decided it would be perfect for the pictures I had of our family hike. 

Their sketch:

My Take:

Campout Cricut Cartridge - animal footprints, tree limb, pine cone, wood pecker and log
Outdoor Man Cartridge: hiking boots
Cricut Alphabet: title

School Field Trip

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is having a fun challenge. 
Their challenge is to create a project this is school related.

I decided to use the photos from when my son when on his field trip to Safeway when he was in preschool. It was such a fun day. We got to go behind the scenes of the grocery store to see how it runs. They ended the trip in the floral department where they each got to pick out a flower to take home. My sweet son picked one out and promptly walked it over to me saying "this is for you mom". A memory I will always cherish.

To create this layout I used:

DCWV: All About Boys paper stack
Celebrations Cricut Cartridge: the Bag tag
My Community cartridge: the Market
Cricut Alphabet: Title
Gold metal embellishments

Thank you so much for stopping by,

Lobster Petting

For his birthday my 5 year, at the time, choose to go to Red Lobster for his birthday dinner. He wanted shrimp - his and my daughters favorite thing to eat. They love to pet the lobsters there, which they generally get to do if it's not too busy. Fortunately, it wasn't too busy and they got some lobster time! The Sketch?! blog had a good sketch, so I decided to use it for the lobster pics.

Their sketch:

My Take:

To create this layout I used:

DCWV: The Nantucket Stack
Pack Your Bags Cricut Cartridge: lobsters
Cricut Alphabet: title
My Mind's Eye - All Things: Lost and Found diecuts
7 Gypsies: Wish - sticker border (Things I wish for...)

Thank you Sketch?! blog for a great sketch!

Till next time, blessings!
