two for the day!

I'm on fire! LOL Here is another LO I was able to finish today inspired by yet another Sketch n Scrap sketch:

The fun thing about this LO for me was all the scraps from my stash that I was able to use! oh and making a banner! love those banners! so here is the page I came up with:

well, that might be it for today! blessings my scrappy friends!

a little bit of fall...

Fall is definitely my favorite season to scrap about! We had a nice, quiet Thanksgiving with family and friends so I was able to sneak away to scrap a bit. This LO was inspired by this sketch from Sketch n Scrap:

and from Colorful Creations to use bling! which I love to do! The page came together quite nicely if I do say so myself! LOL 

Thanks for stopping by!

More circles!

I create many pages with lots of photos and this next one has 5 pics plus lots of circle goodness! I am our family's story teller with these pages and am loving it! All the paper is Recollections from Michael's and the letter stickers are Echo Park. I used my black Zig journaling pen to draw around the insides of the circles.

I'm loving how much I'm getting done these days and I just received more pictures yesterday to start planning more pages! There is a Friday night crop at the local scrapbook store that I am going to so I'm super excited to start getting some supplies together as well as imagining what I can get at the store while I'm cropping!! So there you have it. Hope everyone is having a great day! Blessings my scrappy friends!

for Sketchy Tuesday

I have finally finished a challenge for Colorful Creations! This LO is for Sketchy Tuesday:

here's the sketch:

that's 2 for today so I feel accomplished! yay!

I'm a football mom!

good morning all! I pray everyone had a good weekend! The weather here was definitely got up to 80 degrees and windy! Now today it's only going to be around 50...crazy, I tell ya, crazy!!!
So this year was my son's first year at playing football! I was able to attend some of his games at the high school and got snap happy with my camera for this momentous time in his life - FOOTBALL!! He loved it! So here is my first LO of his football experience:
simple and to the point I'm thinking. One of the cool elements about this page for me was finding paper that looked like real football leather made by Reminisce!! The local scrapbook store where I go to crop once a month has it and I was thrilled to find it!
this was a fun LO to work on! thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

I love circles! (revised)

Back again with a LO of my guys at a spring baseball game! I originally tried to do this page for Colorful Creations "Sketchy Tuesday" last week but missed it. I really liked the sketch so I went ahead and finished it up last night. I love circles! I use my Silhouette, I hand sew them, draw them...I just love circles and elements such as! so this LO has circles and the guys saved their tickets for me to use as well!
now that I see the LO on here, the left upper corner seems a little off compared to the rest of the page. It is lacking (dare I say it?) another circle element!! I think I'm gonna go fix it right now and I'll be back with what I come up with. Anybody have any other suggestions? Please feel free to let me know!
Here's what I did:
aahhhhh! much better! thanks for the suggestions ladies! much appreciated! :)

happy birthday Mom!

wow! it sure has been awhile since I posted anything, hasn't it?! well I had surgery for the implant for my medicine and a short stay in the hospital so it's been recovery for me and I was just able to start scrapping again this past week. I've really missed it!
Today I have an older LO I did to honor my mom on her birthday...she passed away 10 years ago and I still miss her so.
