Lobster Petting

Image
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!

A Trip to the Library

Image
Back again with yet another great sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap! I thought that this sketch was perfect for the pics I tool of my son at the library! Here he is really just starting to get into reading books for himself. It really is so great to see him take such an interest in reading, makes my heart happy!

The sketch:

My Take: 

Created using: George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge: Circle base Family Album: Story Time title and book base Kate's ABCs: Read title and book base Fabulous Finds: Book binding (using the pen/writing feature in Design Space I titled the book to look like a library book under the pictures) A Child's Year: Boy reading silhouette Designers Calendar: Books Due tag

What a fun layout to make! Thank you Sketch-N-Scrap!


Till next time, blessings! 



More Birthday

Image
Here is another great sketch that I found at Sketch-N-Scrap this month that I wanted to play with. I've been really back in the scrapping game recently and I am finding that the sketch challenges are really what gets me inspired and wanting to scrap! They always put out good sketches and are easily one of my favorite sketch blogs!
The Sketch:

My Take:

Created Using: Wild Card 2: Happy Birthday title Sweet Shoppe: donuts George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge: legos (made by welding together rectangles/squares and cylinder shapes), as well as the circular base under the title

I thank you for stopping by! Enter your own take on this sketch at Sketch-N-Scrap!

Summer Break, literally!

Image
I really haven't scrapped much this summer. I always think that I will get so much done during the summer break and I don't know why I'm so surprised every year at how busy it ends up being. Not complaining at all, I promise. The summer has been great and we've done a lot of great things such as VBS, a trip to Arizona, time at the lake, park days, pool days, lazy days. Yes, it's been a good summer and it's not quite over yet! We've got two more weeks till school starts and I'm feeling the pressure to get in as much summer as I possibly can and eager at the same time to get back to a routine! If that makes any sense?! This week my 8 year old daughter decided she wanted to learn to use the Cricut, so of course I had to teach her! Its always been something I was hoping for - to have mother daughter crafting time! So, this is what we've been doing all weekend - literally :) And she caught on really quickly. I showed her what to do and she was off!
