Some New Layouts

I have actually been able to make time to scrap this last week, and have been pretty happy with what I got accomplished.

This layout was done using a sketch from Sassy Lil Sketches. While we were visiting all the car shows last year, this one was one of Tyler's favorites. He insisted I take many pictures of it- the motor, tires, exhaust, seats, shifter, etc. He really wanted to be able to see it later. And he did, cause we ran into it at several car shows over the summer.

This layout was done for a Scrap Whisper's challenge to document a change, and I used a Page Maps sketch, He is growing up so quickly. Now he constantly tells me, I am grown now Mom, I can help.

This was a Sketchy Thursday's sketch. These are pictures from my sister's engagement party. She plans to get married at a lighthouse and her colors will be sky blue and sandy brown, so that is what I used on the layout.

This layout was done for the Let's Scrap blog hop challenge at LotsToScrap blog. The challenge was to do a layout using green and yellow. I used another Page Maps sketch. These are pictures of Tyler and my cousins children at an Easter Egg Hunt at my aunt's house.

This was another Let's Scrap blog hop layout. The challenge was from Scarlett's Scrapoirs blog to do a monochromatic layout and use a Let's Scrap sketch. The pic is of Tyler picking flowers for my grandmother.

Another Let's Scrap blog hop layout. This is for the challenge at Five Tulips blog. She gave us a layout to be inspired by. This is a picture of Tyler playing the balloon toss at Shawn's company picnic.

Another Let's Scrap blog hop layout. This was for the challenge at Younique Reflections blog to use the Let's Scrap sketch she provided and stitching. My stitching is rub ons. The pic is of Brittany's band concert when she was playing the tuba.

This layout is for the Sketchy Thursday's June GDT Challenge. I really love their skeetches. This is just a random picture of Tyler and my dad playing with tools.

NSD Weekend Work

In addition to the blog hop challenge, I have actually managed to complete several layouts this weekend. I also completed several of the online games and challenges at Scrapbook Challenges too.

This layout was done Saturday morning for the four-hour sketch contest at Let's Scrap.

This layout was completed for the color combo challenge at Scrapbook Challenges. This was an easy one for me. The color combo was red, black, white, and gray- and our school colors happen to be red, black, and white. So I finally got around to scrapping some of Britt's marching band pictures.
This was done for the 3-2-1 scraplift challenge at Scrapbook Challenges. The challenge was to use 3 manufacturers, two journaling spots, a one word title and scraplift a layout from the gallery.

Not as much as I wanted to get done, but we had the boys here this weekend and had a small birthday party for them Saturday. Then I developed a killer headache that pretty much wiped out the rest of my night.

NSD Fun at Scrapbook Challenges

Come play at Scrapbook Challenges to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day. They are having a blog hop, contests and games, great prizes, and tons of inspiration. Here is the link to check it out.

They are having a blog hop to introduce the newest design team members and to say goodbye to the design team that is leaving. If you visit and comment on all the blogs, you are entered for a chance to win a wonderful Scarlet Lime kit. Here is the link to Pamela's blog, the creator of Scrapbook Challenges, to get started.

They have also invited all the members to "hop on" and join the blog hop. They have provided the members the same sketch as the design team used for their blog hop posts. If you would like to join in, just use the sketch to create a layout and follow this link to the forum post to "hop on".

Here is the layout I created:

And here is the sketch:

Come on over and check everything out. There is lots of fun things going on.
