Monday Monday

Mondays are always so busy, or at least they seem that way after relaxing weekends.  I was able to get a little scrappy time in over the weekend, yay!  My Scraps and More Sketches has a fantastic sketch up right now.  Tammi puts up a sketch every Friday and they are always such a great inspiration.  Here's what I did with her latest sketch:

(Products used: Bazzill cardstock;  Basic Grey, Lily Bee Design and My Mind's Eye patterned paper; Bella Blvd and Lily Bee Design cardstock stickers; Bella Blvd crochet flowers; Basic Grey Candy Buttons; Simple Stories journaling card; misc Burlap Bow)

It's an older photo of my daughter "shaving", my kids love doing that with their Daddy.  I really happy with how this layout turned out and I'm sure I'll be using this sketch again. I like all the layers of paper, might have to do another page and add even more layers! Thanks for stopping by today, and go check out My Scraps and More Sketches for this and other sketches, you won't be disappointed!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to everyone!  We live in such a blessed country, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.  Today my wonderful husband is taking our kids to the pool so I can have a little scrappy time to myself.  Then we are going over to my sister's house to cookout and go see some fireworks this evening.  Sounds like a perfect day to me!

Last night I finally had some time to scrap a page--it's been awhile.  This page was from a My Scraps and More Got Talent III Challenge to use black cardstock as your background and bright colors on the rest.  I also decided to use one of Tammi's fabulous sketches from her My Scraps and More Sketches blog, I used sketch 34 which I just love.  

(Products used:  Pebbles patterned paper and cardstock stickers;  Bazzill cardstock; American Crafts Thickers; My Mind's Eye enamel dots; My Scraps and More sketch)

I've only ever used black cardstock background for more formal picture layouts, but I really like how the colors popped on this page!  Go check out My Scraps and More for not only their Got Talent III challenges, but also for great sketches.  Not to mention just a great group of scrappers and lots of inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by today!
