Early Gift

In the last few years we have started a new tradition around Christmas time. We have started to have an early family gift or two throughout the month before Christmas. The idea behind this is that the kids get to open an early gift and that gift leads to some quality family fun time. This year we had gotten a good deal on laser guns during Black Friday. Instead of saving them we decided to make this the early family gift! It was a huge hit and even Jason and I had fun running around shooting at the kids. 

To scrap this these photos I used a sketch from the Sketch n Scrap blog, one of my favorite sketch challenge sites. 

The Sketch:

P is for Puppy


I am so excited to announce that I was choosen as a Guest Designer this month for the double page layout sketch at Stick It Down

I love scrap booking and really love working with sketches. I have been scrapbooking for over 20 years at this point. I have two children, a golden-doodle, and I'm married to the best man a girl could ask for. And when I say the best I mean it! This man puts up with my scrapbooking obsession as well as my coffee addiction and my love of books (which are everywhere)!  I enjoy spending time in my craft room creating layouts for our family scrapbook albums. It is so fun to be able to open our family albums and not just look at pictures but relive the memories through the layouts themselves. I put my albums in the order in which things happened and I go year by year. The only problem with this method is that I end up with a lot of albums! I tend to scrap everything, however I find that it is so worth it when I look at my children enjoying them. 

The two page sketch for this month was so much fun to work with! It was perfect for the many photos I had of when our Golden doodle was a puppy. For this sketch I choose to use DCWV: Just My Type paper stack. The colors in this stack are bold and fun and really went well with our puppy's personality. My title comes from Nate's ABC's Cricut Cartridge and I used lots of embellishments from my stash as well as creating embellishments with die cuts from Design Space. I don't know about you, but using up my stash is very satisfying!


The Sketch:


My Layout:


To Create this Layout:

DCWV: Just My Type paper stack

Me & My Big Ideas - paper stickers
Stickles and paper clip w/ribbon from stash

As For Me and My House

We went down to the court house last year, and I can't remember the reason - probably something to do with the porch cover or shed we were building (permits?). Anyway, out in front of the court house was the Ten Commandments. I loved it!!! So, of course, I had to get photos of the kids with it. 

To scrap these photos I used a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy and wrapped it in with a challenge from A Cherry on Top - Manufacturers Challenge - using manufactures that began with the letters M and B. I chose to use Bella Blvd paper and Me & My Big Ideas chipboard stickers.

Check out the layout below!

Museum Field Trip

At this point in 2018 Grace had just left school to come home and be home schooled. She really had a great relationship with her class and was invited to come back for the 5th grade field trip to the NW Museum of Arts and Culture. She had a blast with her friends and it ended up being a great send off to her new schooling adventure.

For this class photo I used a sketch from The Studio Challenges blog. This is the first time that I am entering a challenge on this site as I just found it when searching for sketch ideas.
