More Doodlebug

I decided to use some more Doodlebug for last night's FFT at The Moments. These papers are really part of a cooking line. But the colors were perfect for the photos...And think it worked out well. Everything is Doodlebug except cardstock and twine. The twine is WeRMemory Keepers.

Argh...A Pirate's Life

Check out this lo...I didn't think I'd like it...the photos were sub-par. But that pirate ship laser cut (Paper Wizard)...Wow...made the lo! The title sticker is from Karen Foster. All the rest is just card stock. Clouds and waves were cut with the cricut.

Doodlebug LO

My friend Cathy is a huge (probably not a big enough adjective) Doodlebug lover. I go in with her every year and get most of the lines. Well...when I saw the cherries on Kelly's shirt, I knew what paper I had to use!

More Layouts. sure seems I've gotten my mojo back. I'm scrapping like crazy...and get this...pages are taking only hours instead of days! This week I actually have gotten 2 layouts done on 2 different nights. That is 4, yes 4 layouts in a week and the week isn't over! Yahoo!!!!

This one uses MME American Made, but I changed it to "You are an American Now!" Design is from Michelle Donner Ramsey from Scrapaganza.
The next 2 use Echo Park Country Days

It's my Birthday!

And I actually managed some me time today! Woohoo!!! Although the day started shaky with my son...we managed! I actually got two layouts done today. I think I've found a grove. As long as I start with a sketch or a lift, I can actually scrap at a decent pace!

I totally LOVE Echo Park. And their Summer Days line is soo bright and colorful! I just had to use it for these photos!

Surprise challenge!

I just love the challenges at The Moments. They have inspired my soo much. Check out my latest layout. The design is based on a Jana Eubanks sketch and was originally started for the color challenge: yellow, orange, and red. The problem was that I fell in love with this BoBunny paper and well, blue was calling to me. No worries...Surprise challenge to the rescue. Add some rub-ons to the photos and handmake a flower. The flower was made using CosmoCricket's Gluber adhesive circles. The instructions for making the flower is on the back of the packaging.
I soo LOVE this layout!

Ya just gotta love a good crop!

I attended the Favorite Things crop run by on of my LSS this weekend...OH BOY! I had a blast! It was the perfect mix of scrapping, socializing, snacking, prizes, and fun ativities.

Plus...I did not realize how much I needed some scrappy therapy. I was soo run down and defeated before this crop which was held Friday and Saturday. I was tired on Sunday but felt soo much better. Even though packing for a crop is a huge PITA...the rewards are worth every second of the agonizing packing process! I definitely need to attend more crops!

Here are a few of my creations:

Love Sketches

Hey all...Looks like I'm consistently scrapping again! Yahoo!!! And...I just have to say again...I LOVE sketches. The moments has a sketch challenge every month and this month they used a sketch from Sketchabilities! I just LOVE Karan's sketches...Here is my take on Sketch #50. Make sure you check out the 2 sites...they are 2 of my favorites!

OMG!! I'm scrappin' again! Woohoo!

Check out these layouts...
I did this layout for the Ice Cream Social Crop at The Moments. It was for the sketch challenge. Way fun! The crop was super fun...You'll have to join me for the next one!

This layout is for the Scraplift Challenge at the Moments. I challenged the members to use a grid on their layout.
And then on Fridays the Moments. Every Friday from 7-9 Eastern a sketch is posted and we chat and scrap. This is the layout I did for 7/1 FFT.
