Life is a Journey...

Hi Friends!  I was able to fit in one last challenge for the month.  I loved the sketch from Sketch~N~Scrap.  As soon as I saw it I knew I would use it for a vacation layout.

Happy Fall...

Hi Friends!  I have a cute little project to show you.  My friend was making these adorable candy bar holders for family and friends for Halloween.  She had four of the designs that she cut out and wasn't going to make so I got to make them.  Aren't they just the cutest!  The cutting files can be found at Treasure Box Designs.  Right now the cutting file is on sale for half price!  

I gave my daughter, her fiance my son and his girlfriend one this weekend.

Game'n Cousin's...

Hi Friends!  For today's layout for Paper Secrets I really messed up.  I printed the sketch to take to a crop and forgot  that you had to use the first letter of the word Trick for the challenge and come up with something for each letter on your layout.  So after I realized this with my finished page I went back to work.  I had to really brainstorm for this one!  I finally came up with a solution.

T- Tickers
R- Red Button
I- Ink
C- Chipboard
K- Kids

Family Ties...

Hi Friends!  Wow this month is flying by.  We have been enjoying some much needed cooler weather here in the south!  I just love all the fun things to do in the fall.  Wish we had the pretty change of the leaves but I wouldn't want to live anywhere else right now.  
For this challenge I chose to combine 2 challenges.  Scrapping Everyday Miracles is the sketch challenge I chose to work with and the color challenge @ Off the Rails Scrapbooking.  I love it when I can combine two great challenges!

I flipped the sketch to accommodate my photos better.

Recipe- Paper- Echo Park & DCWV, Ink- Martha Stewart & Dew Drop, Stickers- Echo Park & Mrs. Grossman's, Kiwi Lane Template- Abbie Road 1A & 2B, Brads & Eyelets- Making Memories, Flowers- Coor'dinations, Oriental Trading & Eyelet Outlet, Font- Cricut Alphabet, Cricut Cartridge- Goerge & Basic Shapes

Hi Friends!  Today I found a fun challenge that involves 3 Scrappy Friends and they each have a challenge that you can do individually or combine all three!  I chose to combine them and it was a really fun challenge!

Recipe- Paper- DCWV & Colorbok, Cricut Cartridges- Paper Dolls for Everyday, Font- Creative Memories Total Sports, Sewing Template- WR Memory Keepers, Ink- Martha Stewart, Misc- Glitter Gel

Scrappy Friends Challenges :)
October Tic Tac Toe Challenge Rochelle  @ Through the Eyes of Rochelle Spears

I went diagonal with 4 + Patterned Papers, Orange "the dots on the paper" and Die Cut- my little drummer and drum!

The sketch is from Brenda @ Grand Diva's Creative Corner

Let me tell you this sketch was a bit of a challenge.  To cut the angles I had to borrow a larger cutter!  I love the result!

Next is Kelly's October Word Challenge.

The challenge was to chose 1 or more words to use as a title or journaling.  I chose the word Adorable and Sweet to be used as my title.
Wow did you get all that, what a super fun challenge!

Have a Blessed Day!

Mr. COOL...

Hi Friends!  I have a cute layout of my "cool grandson" to share with you today,  We were on vacation and he was sitting on the counter and put on my sunglasses.  He thought he was Cool and since I'm his MaMaw I agree!!! hehehe:)
I stepped out of my comfort zone with this one using a flower pattern I would not normally use on a boy layout but when cut into strips you can't tell!  I used a sketch from Scrap & Play.

Friends Forever...

Hi Friends!  I don't know if I told you that I got the new Cricut Explore.  I Love it!  Being able to use any font on my computer to cut or print has been Amazing!!  On this layout I printed my words on strips using the print feature.
For today's challenge @ Sketches in Thyme,  Rochelle Spears created a fun sketch to work with!

You can't tell in the photo above but each one of the little banners is stamped and embossed.

All Piled Up...

Hi Friends!  Here's another layout from the all day scrap.  This is of my oldest daughter my niece and nephew 10 years ago.  Wow has time flies.

Hi Friends!  Today's layout I'm sharing is for the sketch challenge @ Stuck?!.  I just loved the sketch designed by Laura Whitaker and couldn't wait to work on a page.  I went to a PJ Party Witches Brew @ the Craftin Cow and scrapped until the witching hour.  We had a blast so much so that I didn't take any pictures.  The day was a very creative day for me and I was able to work on many challenges which I will be sharing with you this month.
Here's a layout of my husband and I, our oldest daughter and her family last year.  We went to a beautiful waterfront wedding.
