The Dark Side of Disney

Hello, crafty friends!  Today's layout is of a fabulous weekend crop in Henderson that I attended over the weekend.  The crop, hosted by Scrap Society, was themed the Dark Side of Disney and each pod of crafters was assigned a villain.  Our villain was the infamous Maleficent. 

Many of the items I used to scrapbook this page were given to us at the crop, including the doilies, Maleficent card, ribbon, and chipboard.  I love that I was able to include so many souvenirs in my pages.  

Our group had such a fun time scrapbooking, and playing games all weekend long.  They also included many meals, entertainment, and prizes.  We also dressed up for our crop.  You can see we are all wearing the same t-shirt and horns in the photo above.  

Hope you had a wonderful weekend, as well.  Thanks for stopping by!

Oh so Lucky to be Loved by You

Good morning, Scrapbookers!  Sketches in Thyme has another beautiful sketch this week, guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing!  Look how pretty it is:

Here is my take on the sketch:

As you can see, I used a beautiful tag I had made at a class a few years back, instead of a picture on the right hand side of the layout.  The large stacking hearts in the lower left were made with my Cricut and the absolutely gorgeous gold foil background paper is from My Minds Eye My Story collection.

The picture is of my daughter coming home from kindergarten on Valentine's day wearing a large heart she had decorated in class.  She is just so precious!  I just love her smile.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you get a chance to join me over at Sketches in Thyme!

Good morning, friends.  Today I have a layout using one of my all-time favorite collections from Pink Paislee, Soiree.  I just love the bright, happy colors.  It's like a rainbow on paper. 

My layout was inspired by Stuck?! Sketches' January 15 sketch challenge.  The photos were of one of my daughter's 9th birthday celebration.  We had quite a few different things for her that month.  I took her to Las Vegas to see friends and we went to eat crab legs over at the local Joe's Crab Shack.  So yummy!  She's definitely taking after me with her taste in food.  They also gave her a wooden horse to ride around the restaurant.  You could tell she didn't really want to (she's a little shy), but she was a good sport and did it anyway.  Love that girl!

Thanks so much for stopping!  Have a great day!

FUN has U right in the middle of it

Good morning, scrapbooking friends!  Hopefully your weekend is off to a great start.  It's been raining here in Southern California a lot for the last couple of weeks, but today is beautiful and sunny.   Love it! My son is off mountain biking right now and my daughter and I plan to do a bike ride around the neighborhood... as soon as the plumber shows up to fix the garbage disposal.  

Today I have a layout I created using a ton of very old scrapbooking papers I had in my stash.  Most of the were from Cosmo Cricket and had a very vintage feel about them.  The picture is a few years old and shows my son in the middle of a very large bubble.  It was at a special event given by our local Parks and Recreation Department.  I had previously scrapped the picture of my daughter, but hadn't scrapped the one of my son until this week.

I created the layout for this month's sketch challenge over at Stuck?! Sketches

Have a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

So Proud

Hello crafty friends!  I am guest designing this month over at 1 2 3 Challenge Blog. Here is their challenge this month:

I thought this challenge would be perfect for a cub scout layout.  

I used a lot of wood embellishments and painted the letters blue to match the them. The sparkles on the stars are sequins.  I I also cut out the Scout Law wording out of his handbook. 

Hope you can participate in the 1 2 3 challenge, too!

You Bring Me So Much Joy

Good morning!  Today I have a quick and simple card to share with you.  I just love the sentiment, "You bring me so much Joy".  It is part of the Technique Tuesday stamp set, Labels from Ali Edwards.   The paper is from Pink Paislee's Memorandum collection.

I created this card based on the card sketch challenge over at Sketch-N-Scrap.  Love how quickly it came together.

Have a great week!

Hello Summer

Happy New Year, creative friends!  I hope your new year is off to a fabulous start.  I know a lot of people dislike all the hoopla that comes with celebrating the end of the year, but I LOVE it!  I love reminiscing with family and friends about our favorite moments over the last year.  I love making resolutions.  I think it's so fun to think about what new experiences you'd like to do in the new year.  (One of mine is definitely zip-lining!)

Speaking of favorite memories in 2016, today's scrapbook layout features one of them.  Our family loves to visit one of my best friends in Henderson, NV.  Between our two families, we have seven kids that love to play from dawn to dusk (and later).  Every year we get a picture of them by the pool.  Here's the latest one:

Have a fabulous day! Thanks for stopping by!
