Life is Better with Friends

Today our theme at Practical Scrappers is "stitching on your layout". I'm a huge fan of sewing, so this was perfect for me. I'm really trying to use up my stash and with this Echo Park line, I have the whole collection, so it was an easy choice what to use. It's perfect for boy layouts. This is Noah playing with Daisy and Jax on Mothers Day. The puppies just follow him around everywhere. They are quite the little threesome. That's why...Life is Better with Friends, even if they are puppies! I used a sketch from a new site I found called ScrapFriends for some inspiration. Hope everyone is having an awesome scrappy day!

What's Cooking



There is a new sketch up this week at Sketchabilities! The oh-so talented Karan has done it again. Another fabulous sketch! I hope to see you come play along with us this week. When I went to see Pat at Urban Scrapbook she challenged me yet again. She gave me a new line to play with called Fab-Scraps. She said "Lynn...what about a cooking layout?"..I was so proud to announce that I was on my way home to bake apple pies that afternoon. Perfect right?? So I had this fabulous paper, delicious apple pies and a perfect photo opportunity! I see my hair was going in 50 different directions..but hey, I was baking, lol. So thanks to my friends at Urban for the beautiful materials and Karan at Sketchabilities for the fabulous sketch!!

Because I Knew You

Good Morning Scrappy Friends! Today at Scrap It With A Song our new challenge is the song by Kristin Chenoweth from the musical Wicked called "For Good".  When I saw the line "Because I Knew You", I knew exactly what I wanted to scrap. This layout is of my grandmother, my Baba holding Ryan when he was a baby. This wonderful lady helped raise me from the time I was six weeks old. I can't even begin to type all the memories I have of her. She was so special to me. Just looking at this layout makes me miss her even more. She has now passed away, but I think of her often. Around my layout I wrote some of the lyrics from the song.
"It well may be, that we will never meet again in this lifetime, 
So let me say before we part, 
So much of me is made of what I learned from you.
You'll be with me, 
like a handprint on my heart....
But I know I'm who I am today,
Because I knew YOU.

I keep telling the girls that they keep making me cry when I see these songs. I love the challenges because they bring meaning to my layouts. I really hope you can stop by. We post a new song every week, and you have all month to enter. I also go to  try the new Jenni Bowlin line for this from my wonderful friends at Urban Scrapbook and I also used a sketch from a new site I found called Scrappy Sketches.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments and I appreciate your scrappy support! Have a wonderfully happy scrappy day! Lynn

The Onesie

Today at Practical Scrappers we are featuring humorous layouts. I didn't have to put alot of thought into this one. I've wanted to scrap these pictures for a long time. This is my son-in-law Christopher. On a trip to Banff he found his "dream outfit"...THE ONESIE. He didn't take it off for weeks. He even wore it to the New Years party. He tells me he is 'bringing sexy back"...un huh. My daughter says "it's a good thing I love you", lol. I guess I should start looking for matching onesie's for father and baby if they have kids, lol. So come by and see what our designers did , there are some funny layouts on the blog today. Since I was using Authentique products, I thought I would use their latest sketch for my layout. I had fun making the three dimensional stars and I even made the little envelope. It was hard not to put on some flowers, lol.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments and I appreciate your scrappy support! Have a wonderfully happy scrappy day! Lynn

Supplies: Authentique "Loyal" Collection, "Faithful", "Devoted", "Honest", "Euphoria"

Forever


Our latest challenge #68 is up at ScrapFIT. If you are a regular, you know of our Weekend Warm Up Coach Missy and her love of Misting. Well this challenge is in honor of Missy! I love to mist so out came the bottles of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I was only going to mist a little piece of the background paper, but...ummm...once I started I kept thinking I needed to add "just a little more"..and as you can see, the whole background became misted, lol. I even misted the little envelope! This of course is a photo of my daughter Nicole and her husband Chris on the wedding day. I wanted to keep the layout simple, but I just can't resist flowers!! So my friends..get out the mists, step out of the box and join us over at ScrapFIT!! The sponsor for this challenge is Vicky Alberto and her gorgeous Etsy shop.

Here is our sketch for this week at Frosted Designs. I knew the minute I saw it I wanted to do a layout of the two pups chewing on their bone.

I hope you can join us this week...come see what our fabulous designers did with this sketch and hopefully you can play along. See you at Frosted Designs!!!

Cowboy Blue - Sketchabilities # 71


We have a new sketch up at Sketchabilities this week!! Karan's sketches are just so much fun to work with. This layout I did about my little great-nephew Noah. Every time he visits us and Ryan is home, they head off to Ryan's room and always come out with something fun. Today it was the cowboy hat and sunglasses. Well who could resist taking a picture of that? When he was born we called him 'baby blue', so I thought it was fun to call my layout "Cowboy Blue". I hope to see you all over at Sketchabilities...and see what you create.

Time of My Life - Scrap It With A Song


This week at Scrap It With A Song the song is "Good Riddance/ Time of Your Life" by Greenday. Well..I'm having the time of my life with my new pups. I've never laughed and smiled so much. The "adventures" they get in to are priceless. This is a photo of myself and Daisy out at the lake on my birthday just hanging out and walking by the lake. I spend so much more time outside now too. We take walks or just sit out on the patio enjoying the sunshine. As the song says " It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right"...that is my new motto for life! Hope you can stop by and join us this week! I should also mention that my design came from the beautiful sketch at Stuck On U Sketches! I was happy to get to play along with them this week.
