Scrap Our Stash #22~use sequins

Happy Tuesday! Cold and snowy here in my little hometown! Perfect weather for some scrapping  and playing along at Scrap our Stash today. This is the next page for Hadley's album. This is my 88 year old Grandmother, Hadley's Great Grandmother and my sister with "Our Sweetness". 
 I stamped the title and added just a little bling with those two sequins. 
 This tag is the packaging from the Bo Bunny bling that came with the Primrose collection I used. It was too pretty to trash, so I just cut the bitty polka dot paper to cover the branding on the top. I added that swirly doo sticker and the medallion with one sequin in the middle.
 I was inspired by this FABULOUS sketch from my sweet friend, Bev Code
Bo Bunny Primrose papers, stickers, and ephemera.

One more page in Hadley's album finished! This is my brother getting some smiles and love from his sweet baby girl. 
Some of the little details of the page.
I love the little Heidi Swapp stickers, they were perfect for this page.
And all the inspiration came from this January 1 Stuck?! sketch.
Love how it all came together!

I have this precious page for Hadley's book today. This was one of her very first baths after she came home from the hospital. So happy her Mommy captured these moments for me! So this one works for the new challenge up at Lasting Memories Life's Moments "Anything Goes" challenge
This photo is just so adorable. Love is all I think of when I see it. 
I was inspired by this sketch from Week 3 at Let's Get Sketchy. I'm actually gonna turn this into a double page spread. 
I used a variety of product on this page. The papers are MME Bramble Rose, the flower is a Joleee's Boutique, love is by Heidi Swapp, and the scalloped rose & polka dot canvas stickers were in my stash unlabeled.

You are my Happy....

Yay! I love this awesome new sketch up at Let's Scrap Sketches. So many fun things you can do with it!!!! 
 I went straight to the bits and pieces I had left of this Buzz and Bumble WOTG from CTMH to create this card. 
I rotated to the side and used my very old Creative Memories hexagon punch, scraps of paper, and some Frayed Burlap Tim Holtz ink. I think this is now my fave little card of all time. 
Have a wonderful Saturday! 
Happy Scrapping,

CAS(E) #106

If you follow me....then you know not my style. However, some of my favorite designers use white all the time. So Juliet Sherriff  (QUEEN of white) ....please go easy on me until I get the hang of...."White". :) 

Anyways, this card was inspired in part by all the grey and yellow things I have been seeing and LOVE! Also, by the latest sketch at CAS(E)
I pulled out this stamp set from my stash and love how those colors look! 
Happy Scrapping,

Sketch #138

Are you ready for this sketch over at Sketches in Thyme by Rochelle Spears
Don't you just love all the layers in this sketch? I know I sure do! 
I played with multiple flowers and love it! Also added some bead and jute trim under the photo. 
The title is simply, "Hadley". This photo was taken just after the nurses had cleaned up and returned her to her Mommy. 
Here is the layout. I love how this one came together! 
Bramble Rose MME papers, Prima flowers and trim.
If you love playing with sketches, go on over to SIT and play along!
Happy Scrapping,

Life Lesson #1...

Happy Monday!!!! I am sharing a layout today that was inspired by this sketch at Let's Get Sketchy
This layout is actually a bit clean for me...feels almost naked...hee hee but I think I like it! 
I am entering it in the Scrap Our Stash challenge in which we are to use the letters in "TWINE"
W=Washi tape
I=Ink (Tim Holtz)
N=Number 1
E=Embossing (butterfly)
This life lesson is for the challenge this week over at Lasting Memories. I love how my nieces and nephew were giggling in this photo. So, the Smile Big Give Love Be Grateful Laugh Lots Live Simply was just perfect for this challenge and photo
A better look at the embossing and twine....
Hope you all have a terrific Monday!

Sketch~N~Scrap #73

Hello and Happy Sunday! I am sharing a layout that was inspired by this Sketch~N~Scrap sketch. 
 I created a companion page for my "Splish Splash" of Hadley's first swim. 
 Stamped the title....and added some brads. 
 I have had these little water droplets for soooo many years! I finally found a use for them....yay!!!!! I have added them in upper right and lower left corners. 
 To finish it off, I hand journaled. 
Papers are MME Bramble Rose, ink is Tim Holtz, stamps and colored ink are CTMH, as well as the ribbon and decorative paper clip, and those droplets are mega old from my mega stash! 
Have a very blessed Sunday and hope you get to scrap!!!!

Sketch~N~Scrap Twistback Thursday

Happy Saturday, Peeps! I am gonna spend the entire day in my little studio! First, I got scarppy time
in this morning and used this sketch form Scrap~N~Sketch 
 to make this page for Hadley's album. 
 I am really challenging myself to be more mindful of including my own handwriting on my layouts. 
 I just scattered some liquid glass covered hearts for a soft embellishment.
This was her first professional photo shoot done during her first month. 
All papers and embellies are Primrose from Bo Bunny. The twist is an old item and a new item. The liquid glass on the hearts above, the pink pearls, and the ink are the old items and everything else is new. The flower is Prima and of course, Tim Holtz ink!
