Hello everyone! First time in a while I’m posting a layout. Its based on the new Becky Fleck Sketch Challenge over at A Cherry On Top, as well as a couple of other challenges there.
I used mostly Bo Bunny “Head over Heels”, along with My Little Shoebox alphas. The pinks were perfect for these pics of Penny tearing up her pink turtle. I can’t believe this is just over 4 years ago. Time sure does fly!
Here is the sketch I used:
I used only black, white, pink and red for the Color & Shape Challenge, which was to use those colors at least 75% of your layout, along with a heart. I used several small chipboard hearts.
The Mood Board Challenge was also a great fit for this layout, as it had pink and red, along with hearts.
Hello everyone! This month, I participated in the 30/30 Challenge at A Cherry On Top. Sara hosts this twice a year (January and June) and its alot of fun! Sometimes its what we need after the holidays and getting back to routine. Some days I never made it into my Scrap Room, and some days I was able to get 2 or 3 pages done. Some days there was a challenge attached to the “Day”, others were called “anything goes”. You could also submit cards too!
In no particular order, here are the layouts/cards I got done this month:
I haven’t scrapped this much in one month since June and believe me, it felt great! Alot happened last year that took time away from scrapping, but I’m hoping 2018 is different!
Good morning everyone! Can you believe today is October 1st? Where did September go? Crazy how fast the days are going by.
Today I want to share with a layout that was inspired by a T-Shirt I had bought at Wal-Mart and a photo I had taken of Miss Penny Lane from 2 months ago.
First, the shirt:
That shirt just says it all, doesn’t it. Paired with this photo of Miss Penny:
This layout was born and so was my Fashion Challenge for October!
I was inspired by the colors (grey background, orange and black and white) and of course, the title! 🙂
I also added “sprinkles” of veneer hearts/stars, sequins, enamel shapes, cork embellie and a few stickers. What a way to use up my stash!
I used the following items:
gold glittered hearts: American Crafts
star enamel shapes: Jillibean Soup
thickers: Amy Tangerine
modeling paste: Liquitex
stencil: My Favorite Things
paw print pattern paper: Bo bunny
journal squares/cards: MME
veneer arrow: Crate Paper
veneer stars, hearts, cork embellies: Studio Calico
large gold sequins, white sequins, orange word art/phrase stickers: Teresa Collins

Hello everyone! I promise, last post for the day! LOL! This is another layout that I did over the weekend. It started a little different than the way it ended, but I really love how it turned out!
Its based on Lets Get Sketchy Sketch Week 3.
I actually started following the sketch…with the chicken wire template concentrated on the left of the photo. I made some rings in a darker ink and I didn’t let the ink from the stencil dry, so it got all ugly and smeared. 😦 I decided to move the photo up and layer the papers a bit more. I ended up hiding the chicken wire design, so I added it to the bottom of the papers/photos.
Next were the Heidi Swapp veneer arrows. They were all different sizes and when I saw the short one, with the circle, I first had the arrow pointing up. My friend Amanda suggested I have the arrow pointing at Penny, since Penny is watching Squirrely from the window. It was the PERFECT idea!
I also did this layout for ACOT’s Spelling Challenge and Manufacturer Challenge. This month’s Manufacturer must start with R so I chose Reminisce’s “Its a dog’s life”. And the word of the month was BIRTHDAY. Here is what is on my layout that spells out BIRTHDAY:
B = Blue background
I = Inking using stencils
R = Reminisce pattern papers
T = Tattered Angels misting
H = Heidi Swapp Veneers arrows
D = Doodlebug orange pattern paper
A = Adhesive
Y = Yellow word bubble
Good afternoon everyone! I’m back with another layout I did over the weekend. This one features my sweet girls Ruby and Bear.
This photo was taken last April and I had caught them DIGGING under the rubber tree together. LOL. 10 years old, and digging! Couldn’t help taking the picture. Just look how happy they are! Who could be mad! LOL.
The design is based on Let’s Get Sketchy Sketch from Week 1.
I skipped the sun burst background and chose polka dots (still, a very bold, busy background) and lost the large banner (just used layers instead). The stars were swapped for hearts, paw print and the doggie die cut. All the papers are from Doodlebug’s “Puppy Love” collection, including the die cuts. The alphas are K & Company (brown) and Fancy Pants (navy blue).
The layout is also for ACOT’s 3 in a Row Challenge. I had chosen the middle row – color blue; 5 or more patterned papers, polka dots.
Hey ya’ll! I’m back with my first layout from this weekend. I usually get 2 layouts done the first night during Scrap Weekend, but this time…barely got one done. But it worked out as I got FIVE more done on Sunday!
Anyways, this first layout is based on Let’s Get Sketchy Sketch from Week 2 of this month.
I love the simple one photo design, with the borders. I also wanted to do a sun burst of sorts and grabbed my Crafter’s Workshop stencil and Shimmerz Texturez in Gold Mine to create the sunburst.
I love how the gold looks on the darker papers – which by the way, are from Bo Bunny’s “Mamma-razzi” collection. The stickers/alphas are also from that collection, which I had originally posted for my August Use It or Lose It Challenge.
This photo is one of my faves of Miss Penny. You all know how she is “all about Squirrely”. Well, before we moved to our new house last year, she was accustomed to having a very large front AND back yard with no fence in between. So she could roam around when ever where ever. Our new home, though, has the back yard fenced, and that’s it! Its great for us. Not-so-great for Miss Penny. Within a week, Penny realized that Squirrely could get away from her much more easily. And I caught her pouting. What is she thinking? Is she mad? LOL. She sure does look like she would be!
This layout is also for ACOT’s Supply List Challenge. Out of 10 items, we had to use at least 5. Mine are:
Enamel dots and/or brads (2 black enamel dots)
2 or more patterned papers (used about 5)
Sunshine (can be in the photo, paper, whatever) (used a sun burst stencil)
twine/ribbon (twine around my photo)
something from your stash that is either from a discontinued manufacturer or at least 2 years old (Bo Bunny Mamma-razi collection. It came out in 2011)
