Back To School

I am too late to link up to this sketch but I like it so much that I had to use it anyway! I also came across this colour challenge so I merged them together and created a layout using this photo of Ryan and Evan on the first day back to school this September.

Here is the colour palette that I chose from Megan's Pinterest board. I loved the shades of green and blue  and a bit of yellow.

Here is my layout. I think it turned out pretty cute!
I also used some of my older supplies and used my Cameo. Yay me!!

Me and You

I played along with a new challenge called "Scrappy Friends Challenges". Very cool because basically you could join in on 1, 2 or all 3 challenges.
Well I combined all 3 to create my layout because I enjoyed REALLY giving myself a triple!

So first I will share my layout of Ryan helping me blow out my birthday candle.

Everything is from the Teresa Collins "stationery noted" collection except:
Wood Veneer: Fancy Pants, Studio Calico
Mist: Heidi Swapp
Rhinestones: Recollections
So the first challenge was to use this sketch by Brenda.
The second challenge was by Kristi to use dots and chevrons. My dots are actually on my!
The third challenge by Rochelle was to create a layout about your family or someone in your family.
Check, double check and triple check! Yay!!
I am also submitting my layout to the november craft challenge at Two Scrapbook Friends which is to use a doily.

Grateful for Great Friends

I've had this MME Collectable collection in my stash for a bit and finally got around to making a page with it.

I used a photo of Ryan getting his birthday gift from his good friends. It came together so nicely using the Nov. 1st sketch from Stuck Sketches.

I added some Heidi Swapp glimmer mist and a Elle's studio stamp.

Paper Bakery Sketch #16

I was able to get a layout done for the latest sketch at The Paper Bakery. Not only did I use the sketch but I also used the September kit to create my layout of Ryan and Evan playing hockey.

So love the stars with sequins on them and of course the Flair!!

Happy Birthday

Yes it is the birthday of someone that we all know and admire. Tracey McNeely!!!!

I've been very blessed to get to know Tracey through our mutual love of paper crafting. We were on a DT together many moons ago and just re-connected about 6 months or so ago while on the DT for Dynamic Duos.

When Joyce asked me if I would like to participate in a birthday celebration for Tracey I immediately answered.....YES!!!

Tracey is one of the nicest women that I have had the pleasure of meeting. Not in person (wish that could happen some day) but on line as we shared and created together.
Tracey is kind, dedicated, compassionate, so giving of herself and always there with compliments and praise to others and Tracey is one AWESOME TALENTED CRAFTER!!!!!

Her creations always inspire me. If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing her gorgeous cards please go check out her blog right now!!

So Tracey my friend I wish you a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY and I card I made. (inspired by Kristina Werner)

Head over to Joyce's blog to see who else is joining in to wish Tracey a Happy Birthday.
