2 New Layouts!

I have to reveals for you today! First up is Sketchabilities. Karans sketches are so fun to use! Here is my sample. My Mom and Sister came to visit me over Halloween this year, we had a lot of fun together! I love the "doilies" that were included in the Little Red Scrapbook kit last month!

Next up is Let's Scrap! There is always so much fun going on over there, make sure you go check it out! This time I used only the right side of the sketch to recap 2010!

Hey! Did you notice? Did you notice the new blinkie on my side bar? It's for The Paper Variety, and it says I'm a designer! How exciting right?!! You HAVE to check out their BLOG it is soooo much fun! There is a great challenge every week with prizes!! We all need a challenge and who doesn't love a prize?!

Scrapbook Challenges Sketch #233

Oh My Gosh!!! I love the sketch from Scrapbook Challenges this week! You have to go check it out! It was exactly what I needed for this layout about our Christmas trees! Yes I said treeS, we have 5. If it were up to my hubby they would be up the day after Halloween and wouldn't come down until Valentines Day, and there would probably be 20 instead of only 5! He secretly wishes he was Santa Claus! So, here is my example of this awesome sketch!

A Couple Layouts

Here are a couple layouts I did for a challege contest going on at Scrapbook Challenges. The first challenge was "You". Well, I am my family, without them I am nothing so that's what this first layout is about

More than Grateful, Beyond Blessed
 The second challenge was "Makeover". I had to re-do an old layout. I picked one of my very first layouts to re-do. I won't show you the before, because it's pretty embarassing. But here is the new one, it's a picture of my oldest when he was 2yrs old and my nephew at the beach.
Lake Superior 1994
This weeks challenge is "Today" what am I doing today. My layout is almost done, it's about being a stay at home mom and how grateful I am to have that opportunity. I'll post that after the votes.

Behind the Power Curve

Well, Im a little behind the power curve here! Where exactly did that saying come from anyway, doesn't really make sense! SKETCHABILITIES posted a new sketch on Nov 30th. Where was I?? decorating the house for Christmas! Or attending one of the several events at Seth's school! Busy, busy, busy, I love it! This sketch of Karans was so fun to work with! Check out the blog to see the sketch and what all the other wonderful (and timely) DT's did with it.  Here is my take. It's a pic of Seth. He hijack my camera occasionally and takes  self portraits so as I scroll through the SD card I find them, he's a funny one!
