Whew - it's been a while since I have posted here but I have been busy with Seth's sports, work and scrapping. :)
I was invited by Leslie to join in a blog hop that digs a little into my creative side. You can see Leslie's post here.
1. What am I working on right now?
During the past few weeks I have been digging out all of my supplies to sort and reorganize them. I am loving seeing things I had forgotten about and now are in a place that I can find them. I am also very close to completing a 50 project challenge that I started on Feb. 8, 2014 - in fact I am one project away!! I only count 12x12 layouts. You can see my #48 layout featured on the Birds of a Feather Kit Club's blog today: HERE #49 won't reveal until Tuesday, August 19th on the same blog but here is a sneak at it:
2. How long does it take to create a project?
I have always been a pretty fast scrapper but lately I would like to take some more time to do some more techniques on my layouts.
3. What are my fave things I love to create with at the moment.
Stencils with distress ink on white cardstock - love the look!
Here are two of my layouts featuring this technique:
4. How does your writing/creating process work?
Usually it's driven by design team work so I find photos that work with the products or challenges.
5. What inspires you?
My photos and other great layouts online.
My next step is to invite a few more bloggers to share a bit about themselves next week:
Here is another layout for the March challenge over at Scrapbook Express - come play a long for your chance to win weekly and monthly!! This is your last chance to enter for March! The challenge is to either use this sketch and / or die cuts. I was (once again) inspired by the sketch and I managed to use some older items in my stash! This week I flipped the sketch:
I took these photos in February when we were in a major cold snap with temps not even warming up to zero! Here are some photos from when it was about -19 degrees outside and Seth was shoveling the driveway in the shorts that he wore to school!!
Here is my take on the sketch … I used some Karen Foster Design "What's Cookin'" line mixed with The Birds of a Feather March Kit - love how it all worked together! I cut the title with my Silhouette Cameo - I think it was supposed to be a vinyl wall saying - but hey it worked here too! :)

Since our Cancun trip in January, I have had travel on my mind … going back to the warm beaches of Cancun, planning future vacations and realizing that I have not scrapped a lot of our past vacations - so here are some photos from our road trip to Mt. Rushmore in June 2009 (yup, the same road trip as my "don't speed in WY" layout below! :)
The first layout I have to share today is a photo from a few years ago on a family road trip from CO to SD. We were no more than a few miles across the WY border when I was pulled over for speeding! Instead of letting the ticket and the hefty fine ruin our vacation - I leaned back and snapped a photo of the police car. Even as I was working on this layout both DH & DS laughed at the memory of how our road trip started ... making me even happier that I took the photo! Photo: June 2009
Don't speed in Wyoming:
The second layout I am sharing with you today is a photo of my son on our trip to Houston - it was his second time flying so he was super excited! Photo: May 2007
