Enjoy This Moment


Happy Monday!!! This weekend I had a few minutes to just have some fun and play in my studio. I was looking through my stash looking for inspiration, when I saw an email from Kaisercraft. When I saw the sketch I knew I just had to play along. I had this photo of Nicole on my desk just waiting to be scrapped! I've had the Hidden Treasures collection for awhile, and you know when you love something so much you just can't cut into it?? Well I decided it was time, lol. Also this weekend I was downstairs looking at those albums from long ago (the year 2000) and saw those double page spreads with tons of photos in them, but what stood out for me was the journaling. I always told the story, and somehow I lost that along the way. So... my New Years resolution is to have journaling on every layout. ( If you see one and there is no journaling, give me some grief) . Now back to the project.... here is my take on their Saturday January 25th sketch!

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

Made With Love - BoBunny Note Board


Morning Everyone! Today at BoBunny we are sharing some projects you can make with Blossoms. This was such  a fun project to make. I started with a blank canvas for the background. After gluing the pattern paper on, I made a pocket with the flower paper so I could tuck some note cards and photos in the pocket. The buttons made the perfect centers for my blossoms. I made a little tack board out of some corkboard and glued some of the buttons on tacks I had at home so you could pin anything you wanted to the board. I chose some photos of the kids when they were small because this is a gift for my Mom's birthday. As a surprise I tucked a little gift card inside for her to find! On a side note, I bought some classes on Black Friday and this inspiration came from a noteboard that Junelle Jacobson did in one of her classes.

Time Is A Great Storyteller


Happy Monday my friends! How's your day going? Today I'm sharing a project I did for the latest sketch at Let's Get Sketchy. I usually don't scrap 3 photos on a layout, so I turned the sketch on it's side and added some of the cut pieces from the patterned paper. I had these little photos of myself in the infamous "photo box" on my desk, so I decided to use them. I wanted to add a "little" stamping to the background, but as usual got a touch carried away! But hey, at least all those stamps in my stash are getting used!! So I'm off to my next project.. I hope you can stop by and maybe play along with us!!

A Snowy Day - BoBunny



Good Morning!!! Today I'm sharing a layout I did for my assignment at BoBunny. I loved working with the white and blue color palette from the Woodland Winter collection on this layout. For some added texture I used Glass Bead Texture Gel and a stencil. I used it in random spots on my layout and also on the Blossoms to give everything a snowy effect. Now here is where we insert the funny story. I put on the glass beads, go to bed and let it dry. I wake up in the morning and ALL my glass beads were either pink or orange! WHAT?? How did this happen? Thank goodness for Gesso is all I have to say!! Have you had a scrappy accident? Please share so I don't feel so alone, lol.

Let It Snow! - ScrapStufzz


Morning!!! I have some exciting news to share! Over the Christmas holidays a dear friend of mine Stacia invited me to join her challenge blog Scrapstuffz "Inspired By Challenges" . Every month they have a new inspiration photo and a fabulous prize up for grabs. You have the whole month to play along. Fun right? When I saw the inspiration photo I saw pinks and greens. I was a little stumped. I asked Hubby what he saw and he said "blues and browns". Blue and Brown remind me of winter, so I thought I would take a spin on things and do a winter layout! It's so fun to see what everyone sees in a photo. Do you see colours? Patterns? I know I see colours first now, lol. So I hope you can stop by and play along with us!

Here is the inspiration photo!

Fall Is In The Air


Good Morning and Happy Monday! It's hard to believe the calendar has turned over to a New Year! I'm still playing catch up with some fall photos, lol. This is Jax and I just sharing a little moment on our fall family photo shoot. I had the farmhouse paper left over from my Dec. sketch, so I wanted to use it up and this photo seemed to fit the bill. I even pulled out some stamps and gave the background a little "this and that" lol. This project is for our new sketch up at Let's Get Sketchy. Brenshevia designed this sketch and I was so excited because I got to fire up the Cameo and have some fun!!! Hope you can join us and play along!!

D is for Dream



D is for Dream
What do you dream about? Is it a day dream where you are scrapping or
art journaling all day in your pj's? Whatever your dream is, hold on,
imagine it is coming true because dreams can come true.

Morning!!! Happy New Year!!! Today I'm sharing my next canvas with you. This one has quite a funny story behind it. It started off as a wax paper resist tutorial and ended up with glass beads covering all the resist. That sometimes happens, lol. That's why I love art.. you start with a vision and end up with a surprise.! Here is the little tutorial I did to go along with this canvas ( it was quite the process, you will see). Sorry the photo is a little shiny, had such a glare from those beads, lol
