Sketch It Out!

wowzers! got a ton accomplished tonight! Finally got a LO done for the "Sketch It Out" challenge for March over at Club CK! I had a blast with the sketch and am looking forward to next month's challenge. The twist for this challenge was to use a chevron or hexagon and/or wood grain pattern so I cut out my own hexagons and had a leftover piece of wood grain paper. The photos are from a trivia night at our church and this was just an all around fun time!
I also used this LO for a challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous which was to use the concept of the letter H. So I used the hexagons!

on a roll!

this LO is for Club CK issue challenge #5: use baby photo(s).

back for more!

I just finished a layout for ScrapFit #64 - lots of elements as well as details. Chipboard, stickers, machine sewing, ribbon, punches and my trusty black journaling pen! This was fun!

it has been a week since I have blogged!!! it is Spring break and we joined the YMCA this week so that's where I've been! It's really, really great to be active again! I've also been scrapping a bit - here's one LO I've been working on:
I have gone back to the "clean and simple" style of scrapping just as a refresher. I have not been too inspired lately and have had to wrestle with "Mr. Mojo" to get any scrapping done!!LOL
I did scrap with my friend this week - we usually scrap on Fridays but this week we spent Tuesday lost in our LOs! The M.S. support group that I am a part of met last night and it was such a great time! It's helpful to "bounce" issues off each other for support and encouragement. The disease affects all of us in different ways so it's a great to see how everyone deals with their M.S. I really love this group!
I'll hopefully be back in a little bit with another finished LO!

awesome news!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so today was my 9th infusion at the hospital of my M.S. medicine! had to get "stuck" twice BUT I received awesome news from my doctor right before my appointment about some test results. A week and a half ago I had my first MRI since starting this new medicine and well...(oh heavens! I'm tearing up!) the results are great! I mean there were no changes from the last time I had an MRI! meaning no new lesions and no changes to the ones I already have!!!!! no changes = the medicine is doing its job!!! I feel better than I have in a long time! These last 9 months have been such a blessing - what with feeling better, getting back into life, being able to scrap again, back to church and even being able to go back to a wonderful group for a great time of fellowship and Bible study! God is so good! I prayed a year ago to feel even just a little bit better and have been blessed a thousand % more!! Thanks for all the support and encouragement and prayers from everyone!!!! Thank you for the kind comments and for putting up with my enthusiasm!!! y'all ROCK!!!!!

weekly and Sketchy challenge LO

it's Monday! hope everyone had a great weekend! I started and finished this LO for the weekly challenge over at Club CK and the first challenge over on Let's get Sketchy! This was fun! I challenged myself by using paint and tried distressing a bit! The style I am trying lately is "can I do this or not!" So I am a work in progress so to speak!

I am still working on using PSE to straighten and crop the photos that I upload online. Hopefully I can scrap some more today. Thanks for stopping by! Blessings!

I finally got some scrapping done yesterday when I went over to my friend Jill's house to scrap! We are going to the Creating Keepsakes convention here in St. Louis in June so as well as scrapping we figured out what classes we wanted to take! I am so excited!
The LO I got done is of Liam playing basketball and I like how it came out! I stuck, stapled, glued and journaled to my heart's content! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
this is my first try at a challenge over at Scrapbooker's Anonymous which was to use stickers - lots and lots of stickers!! I used a bunch of letter stickers in the title of the LO...this was fun!
