The Best Days Are With You

OOH LA LA.... When Pat at Urban Scrapbook gave me this new line from Carta Bella I was pretty excited. My first idea was a picture of Daisy because of the pink poodle theme of the paper. But then I saw the photo of Ryan and Ashley and I thought, they look so cute with those pink hearts, I couldn't resist scrapping this photo of them again, it just seemed to fit. Now for some inspiration...the sketch at Stuck On U Sketches was so cute and again...a perfect fit for the paper and photo! Just a winning combination all around! I hope you all are having a wonderful summer day!!

Remember - Let's Get Sketchy Challenge

Happy Monday!! Today at Let's Get Sketchy we are having a WHITE + ONE (Bright) + Flowers challenge. Oh this was fun! Our designers all jumped at the challenge. I decided to use white + purple because I seem to have alot of purple things left over from Nicole's wedding album. With a little ink and my pack of purple flowers plus some beautiful photos of Nicole's bouquet, it all came together nicely. I hope you can join in the fun, jump out of the box and try this fun challenge! See you there.

Together is the Best Place to Be


Good Morning Everyone! I am so excited to share that today I'm the guest designer at Colorful Creations. The sketch was so much fun to work with. I decided to use the Echo Park "This & That" collection, but with a twist. I've used it for boy layouts, but today, it's all about the girls (well..and baby Jax who is a boy, lol). I just found the colors of the collection went with the photo of Nicole playing with the puppies in the sprinkler on Mother's Day. There is nothing like having two soaken wet goldendoodle puppies jumping on you on a hot day, lol. I hope you can stop by and join in the sketch challenge. Thanks again Colorful Creations for the wonderful opportunity!

I Know I'm Not Perfect

It's Thursday so it's time to sing along with the design team at Scrap It With A Song. Today we are singing "Every Girl Like Me" by Sugarland. This is actually a song that I suggested, so I was excited that it was chosen. I took a few lines from the song for my title "I know I'm not perfect, but I know I'm worth it". Now I could be talking about myself, or...I could be talking about those two fuzzy little things by my side. I guess we all aren't perfect, but it's so worth it! So I hope you can swing by and play along. I'm getting addicted to the sketches at ScrapFriends, so once again I used one of the sketches for inspiration.

Say Cheese

Today is a quiet day at my house. Jax just had his surgery so he is napping and of course if one naps, so does the other one. Great time to look for a challenge don't you think? I stopped by Sketches With A Twist and the sketch looked like alot of fun. The twist..doodling! I don't think I have ever doodled on a layout, so this was a good challenge for me. I got out some ink and some pens and away I went. It was a fun morning! Now I'm off to play with the pups and maybe, just maybe clean the house ( 50-50 chance on that one), lol. Have a great day everyone!

Snuggle - Frosted Designs


It's Tuesday!!! I hope everyone is having a fabulous day!  It's a great day here because there is a new sketch challenge up at Frosted Designs. It's so much fun to do the sketches and then see what the other designers and our challenge friends do too. For this one I just had to do the photo of Ryan and Jax having a nap. Ryan was so tired after a weekend camping trip that he didn't even notice one very wet doodle had climbed up beside him for a nap. He just moved over and kept on sleeping. Nothing cuter than a boy and his dog!

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Ok, so I should be doing laundry and cleaning the house, but of course I just had to pop onto my blog for just a second right? Well, when I saw the challenge for a "white space" layout on the  Bo Bunny blog, I just couldn't resist. I had the Country Garden collection right by my desk in my Bo Bunny basket ( yes I have a basket where I keep everything Bo Bunny, lol). And just how long can a "white space" layout take, just a few minutes right, and then I could go back to the laundry, lol. Nope... I spent the last few hours trying NOT to add more stuff to my layout, lol. Awhile ago I took some of the kids baby photos out of the box and I just couldn't resist doing one of Nicole when she was just six months old. Boy, does this bring back memories. So now it's 5:00 p.m. and I had better scoot and finish up the laundry so we can leave on holidays!! Have a great week everyone!

Promises

It's Thursday friends, so that means it's time to sing along at Scrap It With A Song. Our song this week is "American Girl" by Tom Petty. Well..I'm Canadian, so I thought this was going to be a tough challenge until I read the lyrics. They were so fitting for a layout of my daughter Nicole.
My journaling reads (from the song)
" Raised on Promises, 
She couldn't help thinkin'
That there was a little more to life somewhere else
After all is was a great big world"
She is one brave young woman. She packed up and moved to a different city to follow her dreams. I'm a home body, so she is my inspiration to try and do new things. She is an amazing young woman. I stopped by ScrapFriends blog and of course there was the perfect sketch to follow for my layout, so this just came together nicely. So..stop by, get your singing voices ready and come play along at Scrap It With A Song!

Play Hard - Frosted Designs


It's Tuesday, so that means another sketch reveal at Frosted Designs! When I saw this one I knew it would be perfect for a little boy photo. And what's cuter than a little boy and a puppy. Everyone came over for a BBQ on Mother's Day and Noah and the puppies had fun picking up sticks and playing in the water. Such a warm beautiful day to play outside. I hope some of you can stop by and join in our challenge. Come drop by and see what our designers did with the sketch, they amaze me every time!

Everyday Memories



Good Morning Everyone! I LOVE Mondays because it means a new sketch reveal at Let's Get Sketchy!! Our design team was hard at work yet again coming up with some unique and creative takes on the sketch. One day Noah came for a visit with his bubble blower. Oh my did the doodles have fun. They chased the bubbles around the yard. It was a surprise to see Noah, and it just made my day. There is nothing like hanging out in the sun with a two year old, his bubble blower and two puppies.

Home Sweet Home - ScrapFIT Workout #71


Home Sweet Home. We spend many hours at home, so let's surround ourselves with things we love. This week at ScrapFIT our challenge is to create something for your home. It could be a banner, something to display a photo..anything that you can create with paper! Sounds like fun right? I decided to decorate a giant clothes pin that I've had sitting in my office for the past few months that I've been saving for this project. I think this is the first home decor item I have ever done!!! It was quite a feat. The first time I did it, I glued everything on upside down and had to take it all apart. I was pretty proud of my first attempt at home decor. Now...I'm thinking...what else can I decorate? Come by and join in our workout this week. Our sponsor  for this challenge is Paper Issues.

July 4th

For our challenge this month at Unique Crafters our theme is Patriotic projects. Well, I'm Canadian so we celebrate Canada Day July 1st. But.... Ryan's birthday is July 4th, so I love doing his birthday layouts in Red, White and Blue. My girlfriend in the U.S. had a baby boy on July 1st, and often we would joke that we should switch babies, lol.  So Happy July 4th my friends in the U.S.A and Happy Birthday Ryan!!!
