Rock On!!!

One of my children's favorite things to do is to ride our bikes down to the river and throw rocks into the water. They can do this forever, no matter how long or short the trip. It's a beautiful location and I definitely don't mind perching myself on the flattest rock I can find and take pictures of the kids and the scenery.

This week at the new Let's Scrap blog they are having their 4th challenge:

 Challenge #4 - Photo Inspiration

The photo I choose as inspiraton was this one below. I saw the water and immediately thought of the pictures I have taken by the river.

I decided to just use the same sketch as the one Susanna used as her example, sketch 2-1-12. I choose to use the left side of the sketch as well.

My take on the sketch:

For this layout I used the following:

The Garden Party paper stack: DCWV
Groovy Times: Cricut Cartridge
Basic Gray "Hey You" chipboard diecuts.
Distressing ink
Small craft flowers

Thank you so much for dropping by my blog!

Blessings till next time,

VBS 2014: Crafting on a Larger Scale!

For our church's annual Vacation Bible School the theme is Arrow Island! This year the decor team has grown and so has our church decor! What an amazing talented group of people I was able to work with. Even though this isn't a scrapbook related, we did a lot of amazing things with paper to decorate the church with so I figure why not!

So, enjoy the tour!

Welcome to Arrow Island!

Water Fall made by a friend on the decor team did an amazing job of creating a realistic looking waterfall in our church lobby. Her husband created room dividers and then she covered them in white fabric with brown on the sides for rocks. The white fabric is then covered with white and blue tulle then shine streamers over that. The foam is cotton and the water is shiny see thru wrapping paper with colorful fish underneath. Some blue and green lights finish it off as well as lots of greenery, rocks, and flowers!

Well, I hope you enjoyed the tour and all the great decor, the majority of which was created using paper!

Till next time,

Let's Scrap Sketch

Another great layout sketch over at Let's Scrap!
Check it out!

The Sketch:

My Take:

The best part of the zoo, I think, is where the kids got to feed the birds. The zoo keepers gave them sticks with bird food and they held them out until a bird would land on their stick and eat the food. What a fun experience!
This layout was created using DCWV: The Green Stack and Noah's ABC's Cricut Cartridge for the title and the bird diecuts.

Golf Layout

Let's Scrap has another fabulous sketch this week. I am skating by as it's due soon, but it was such a good one I had to get it in there!

The Sketch:

My take:

My husband went to Canada with a friend last summer on a 5 day golf trip. As you can tell it was gorgeous and they had fabulous weather!
This layout was created using DCWV's Lemon Flower stack. The title "Fore!" Comes from the Child's Year Cricut Cartridge. The corner golf ball and ball/tee border came from the Sports Mania cartridge. I used chipboard letters for the other title.

Report Presentation

Grace loves to write up random "report" on things she is interested in. Her Kindergarten teacher (last year) was great - she allowed the kids to bring in things to share. So when Grace showed her the report she did on the 'olden days' just for fun she had Grace present it to the class. Here is a very nervous little girl sharing her report with the class!

These pics were perfect for the fourth sketch in the NSD 2014 Sketch Contest being held on Let's Scrap

Here's the sketch:

My take:

This layout was created using DCWV's My Sunshine Stack. The circles were all cut using the George and Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge. The title "report" was cut using the Type Candy Font cart.

Till next time,
