Hey everyone.  Here's a layout based on the first February 15th sketch at Stuck?!Sketches and the great outdoors February challenge at Scrap the Boys. The photo is of my daughter and grandson exploring around their farm and hanging with her horse, Hugo. Part of the challenge was to be inspired by the words explore, dream and discover, so I used explore for the title. I used another Jillibean Soup collection for this page, called 'Souper Celebration'.  Thanks for stopping by.



Hey everyone. Got a layout for you based on the second February 15th sketch at Stuck?!Sketches. I used the 'Bowl of Dreams' collection from Jillibean Soup for this layout. This was the first time I used a Jillibean's collection and I am really impressed with their collection packs. There's lots of embellishments included and the paper is so thick.  Love it!! Thanks for stopping by.


Little Boy Kisses

Hey everyone. Here's my entry in Cuts2Luv February challenge. The two elements I chose from the moodboard are photo:your love and technique:splatters. The photos are of my daughter and adorable grandson. My two greatest loves. For the splatters I used black ink spray and gold color shine. I used Pink Fresh Studio's 'Escape the Ordinary' collection for this page. I love the thickness of their paper and the embellishments are awesome!! This layout is also based on a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy. Thanks for stopping by.

Hey everyone. Here's my layout based on the February Blend- A -Sketch challenge at Scrap Our Stash. I kept things pretty simple this month and just placed the photo and layered elements of the left sketch where the photo is on the right sketch. For the heart embellishment portion of the challenge I used some heart rub ons. I haven't used rub ons in quite some time, so it was nice to use up some of my stash that normally just gets covered. I guess that's the whole purpose of these challenges....... to "Scrap Our Stash" !! The gorgeous collection I used is from Pink Paislee and is called 'Moonstruck'. For the background I used a mix of Prima watercolors and Vicki Boutin art crayons. Thanks for stopping by.



My Little Love

Hey everyone. Here’s my take on February’s Golden Globe Stash Challenge at Scrap Our Stash (I'm a little late posting. Oops!!). The page is of my grandson, my little love. I was inspired by the grid design so I based the layout on that. I used love in my title and wrapped some red twine around one edge of a frame. I used Bella Blvd's 'Mind Your Manners' collection and Vicki Boutin's art crayons on the background. Love the owls!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Best Day

Hey everyone. Here's my take on Stuck?!Sketches January 15th sketch and the mood board challenge at The Studio Challenges. Love the colors in the mood board. They matched perfectly with the Maggie Holmes' 'Carousel' line from Crate Paper that I used. I love this collection. It's so fun. I fussy cut the arrows, title and ephemera.

I used acrylic paints from Vicki Boutin and American Crafts to make the background. I mixed 2 of the paints to achieve the color I was looking for. I added some water to the paint and then painted a ring on a piece of acrylic. I then stamped the image on my background. Pretty cool and very easy.

I also splattered some of the paint around the page along with some black ink spray. Below is the sketch and mood board. Thanks for stopping by.


Best Friends

Hey everyone. I have another layout based on Stuck?!Sketches January 1st sketch and the snowflake challenge at The Studio Challenges. I used pattern papers, enamel dots and ephemera from Simple Stories 'Winter Wonderland' line. The snowflakes were cut using dies from Spellbinders.

For the background I applied gesso, and then watered down distress ink with a piece of packaging. After that dried I splattered some watered down water acrylic paint. I love how this turned out.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to check out all the inspiration on the SS and TSC blogs.
