I will always love you

Hi everyone! Today is a gorgeous day and not as humid here too. I’d like to share with you a page about Ruby and Bear. I believe its my first one since Ruby passed away last month.


Its based on the latest sketch by Let’s Get Sketchy:


I chose the title from the movie “The Bodyguard” for ACOT’s Musci Challenge:


That large “LOVE” is from my Januay Use it or Lose It (second chance item). I’m so glad I’m still trying to use these. They are very large, one worded titles, so they don’t fit EVERY layout..but hey, two so far this month!

My papers are also by Pebbles, die cuts/chipboard are from MME, and the little clear stickers are Simple Stories.

TFL! 🙂

Think Happy Thoughts

This layout is based on the newest sketch offered by Let’s Get Sketchy, plus the Title Challenge over at ACOT.

Here’s the fabulous sketch:


The moment I saw it, I knew I was going to do some form of mixed media work. And here is what I came up with:

Think Happy Thoughts

I rotated the sketch 90 degrees and used clear gesso to prime my cardstock in the bottom right corner. I used Faber-Castell gelato in metallic melon, using the packaging technique.



My embellishments are from MME, with the papers from Pebbles. Those butterfly rub-ons are from Bo Bunny (still trying to use them up!)


My title is stamped, using those mini stamps from my Use It or Lose It Challenge. The title was chosen by the hostess of the Title Challenge, which is actually from September’s Title Challenge. She also wanted us to use gold. I used a couple of the gold enamel hearts along with the bit of gold in my chipboard.

TFL! 🙂


This next layout is based on ACOT’s Becky Fleck Sketch Challenge #109 and ACOT’s Graphic Design Challenge (to use triangles). Here is the sketch:


I decided to make my own background with this one, misting black droplets, sequins and adding triangles (which I fussy cut out of paper from Pebbles “Cottage Living” collection):


As you can probably guess it, the papers are from Pebbles, an the die cuts, sequins, enamel dots and title is from MME “Fancy That” collection.

TFL! 🙂

It’s Your Day!

I got a little creative with next layout, using 2 of my items from my Use It Or Lose It Challenge – the TCW halftone circle template and 3 piece cling stamps (I only used 2, but hey, I used them!). I first layered the stamps here and there, using both white and black ink. Then I followed up using my white gelato with the stencil.

It's Your Day

This layout uses mostly Pebbles “Cottage Living” collection. The chipboard heart is from MME “Fancy That”. I’m submitting this layout for ACOT’s Title Challenge. The hostess, Deanna, has chosen to allow us to go back to all the 2015 Title Challenges to choose from. We can do all 12 of them if we wish, but only once. I chose to go back and do November’s Title Challenge. I had to use one of five titles she had selected, as well as a number. A number really doesn’t go well with this layout, so I settled on using #1. Whatever works, right?

I’m also submitting this to Quick Quotes Challenge #59 – use a stencil and ink!

TFL! 🙂


Taking a break scrapping Thanksgiving and doggie pics, so I went back to working on my sister in law’s Bridal Photos. The layout is inspired by a sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy (November, Week 3) and the Music Challenge over at ACOT.

Hello, hello


When I saw LGS post this sketch on Monday, I just couldn’t wait to work on it. The white space. The watercolors. I just KNEW I’d be using my gelatos and the “packaging” technique.

My papers and stickers are from Pebbles, Inc.

The Music Challenge over at ACOT was to use MOTOWN as your inspiration. An artist. A song. A record. Album cover. ANYTHING. At first I was planning on using a Motown song from my time period – the 90s. But since I was scrapping my SIL’s bridal pics…and saw these fun photos…I said HELLO! And lo in behold…Lionel Richie has a song called “Hello”!

TFL! 🙂
