"Bundle Up"

Here are more cards and a layout I created for Sketch Support.  The "Snow" Layout was based on the add-on sketch, but I missed the deadline for it to post on Sketch Support.  I thought I would share it with you here.

"Life is full of Adventure"

I love this Echo Park collection (A Boy's Life)!  I'm amazed that they topped their last boys collection.  I love the bright colors and fun patterns. This is a layout I created based on a sketch by Allison Davis for Sketch Support.  I also created a valentine card from the same collection that has a masculine feel to it.  Be sure to visit Sketch Support to see all the creative ways the team uses the weekly sketches.




"Snow Day"

I'm excited to post a few of my projects from Sketch Support from the past few weeks.  The team has been creating some amazing projects and Allison's sketches are getting more and more fabulous each and every week. Thanks for stopping by.

A Christmas Ornament

I love this time of year.  I love decorating, crafting, baking and spending time with family.  I love putting up the Christmas tree because all the ornaments remind me of friends, family and adventures we've been through. 


Here is an ornament I made using ribbon and this weeks sketch by Allison Davis.  I love that this can be made from little scraps of ribbon and felt. Be sure to check out all the other amazing projects the team came up with this week.  Truly inspiring.  Merry Christmas!

I made the cut!


I am proud to announce that I made the 2012 Sketch Support Creative Team.  This is one of my favorite entries for the call. I'm excited to be working with Allison and 12 of last years talented ladies in additon to 7 new members that I know are going to be teaching me a thing or two about scrapbooking.  You've got to visit their blogs.  They are freakin' amazing!

Great things are happening on Sketch Support this coming year. Be sure to play along with amazing sketches and challenges along the way.

Christmas is in the air!


I am so far behind on posting my layouts, so I thought that I would just post them all at once. These are my most recent Christmas and Winter layouts. Go to www.sketchsupport.com for product information and free printable copies of the sketches that were used.  Just click on my name and you will find the projects.






 



These are the projects my boys made with me one night. They had fun getting to use my stuff and make a mess.  I'm getting better at letting them use my scrapbook supplies.  It was a lot to fun creating with them.



"Fall"


Fall is my favorite season of the year. I think it is my favorite because it was the season I feel in love with my husband. I love the colors, smells, sounds and temperature.  I love football games, hayrides, nature hikes, evening walks and watching the sun set.  I like playing outside with my kids because it's not too hot and not too cold.  I enjoy taking pictures of the foliage and pumpkins.  These are photos of Hayden at a friends birthday party at Carmichael's Pumpkin Patch from a couple of years ago. 

The leaves on the layout were pieced together by following Allison's Add-On Sketch from a few weeks back. Her sketches are so fun to work with and keep me from getting bored from doing things the same way layout after layout. Check out her sketches for more inspiration.

Published!

Tonight I went shopping and to Barnes and Noble with a friend.  I finally got my hands on the December issues of Cards magazine, Cricut magazine and Scrapbook Trends magazines.  This is the first time I've been published!

Northridge Publishing was so kind to pick up 4 of my projects for their December issues.  They really are beautiful magazines packed with all kinds of Christmas projects, cards and scrapbook inspiration.  You can also find them at www.northridgepublishing.com if you are looking for a stocking stuffer for someone special.
