Happy Birthday

Hello everyone.  Time for another card sketch challenge over at Sketch~N~Scrap. Come and play along!

Here is today's sketch






And here is my creation.  This card came together pretty quickly.  I used scraps from a layout I created earlier in the month (may look familiar huh?)

Adventure Joy Fun

I found this old picture of my now 18 year old daughter and couldn't wait to create a layout using it.  You sometimes forget how sweet and adorable they were before the "teen" years arrive lol.

I found this great sketch challenge over at Let's Get Sketchy and it is perfect for this photo.

Here is the sketch





And this is what I came up with
I used a distress ink on the edges of all the patterned paper and ran it across the background cardstock to add some depth.  It's so bright in my house right now (problems right?) that you can't really see that.

Dream

Hello! I am in the graduation mode at the moment.  My daughter just graduated high school and we are getting everything ready for a big party!  C an't wait.  So when I found this challenge over at Moving Along With The Times I couldn't wait to pull out my one and only graduation stamp and get crafting!! I paired it with a great sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday

Here is the sketch...
The challenge over at Moving Along With The Times is GRADUATION


This is what I came up with
I used an embossing folder on the background to create the caps and added a little sparkle with glitter washi tape and a little glitter cap.  Wish I would have thought of this when I was trying to come up with invites to the party!!

Shine Bright

Good morning! Welcome to another great sketch for Sketch~N~Scrap! I really enjoyed this one.  I searched for a photo and found this one of my son from when he graduated and couldn't wait to use it. 
Here is the sketch






And here is what I came up with.  It's hard to believe this was two years ago! He's going to be 20 soon and his sister just graduated.  Time goes by so fast!!

Turning 40

So, I'm a bit behind scrapping these photos of my hubby's 40th birthday dinner (he's going to be 42 this year) but truth be told I forgot I had them until today!! Oops.  Better late than never.

I found this great two page sketch challenge over at Let's Scrap and it's perfect for these photos.  Since I took them on my phone they are all facing the same way (not sure how that happened).

I love the simplicity of this layout.  So many different options!

Here is my layout

HI Hottie!

Finally! Some much needed time in my craft room!  I've gotten two challenges for the design team I'm on done already and now to enjoy some challenges.  I used these two challenges for the card below.  What fun. I'm loving the colors from "Just Us Girls".  So summery and bright.  Maybe it'll bring some summery weather our way! The sketch I got from Freshly Made Sketches.



Here is what I came up with

October 97 NSD5 5th bday bash

Hello! I hope you are enjoying the Sketch~N~Scrap Birthday bash!! This is our second installment in the sketch fun!  This layout came together quite easily for me.  It just poured out of me!!





Here is what I created.  I found these pictures from my oldest son's baptism (he'll be 20 in June!).  The lovely lady on the right is his Great Grandma, who we just lost last year so it makes finding these pictures bitter sweet.


Now it's your turn! Create your layout and load it to Sketch~N~Scrap!!
