before my long weekend is over and it's back to the regular work week!
It's another sketch layout from me, I found Scrapbook Challenges and immediately fell in love with this sketch AND as luck would have it they have extended their December Sketch challenge!! YAY!
Most of this layout is using bits and pieces of my Scraptastic kits from 2014 … I subscribed for a while this past year but quit cause I didn't think I liked the kits - well I am thinking I LOVE the kits, it was my mojo that was missing!! So, maybe as I make a dent into my stash, I will re-subscripe to a kit club.
Whooo whooo only two days into 2015 and I have two layouts done!
Today I played along with Stuck Sketches January 1st sketch. These photos are from September 2012 also - real easy to print photos since I was in this album from yesterday & all of my football scrap supplies were still scattered about! :)
Here is the sketch:
Here is my layout:
Recently I moved all of my albums from our spare bedroom down here to my scrapbook room so I love that the two layouts I made this year are already scanned and filed and not stacking up! YAY!
Here is my layout of the pups, Otto and Bentley, with their treats on Christmas morning - yep these guys are going to be even more spoiled than the last dogs that blessed this home! I wasn't able to get a good scan of this layout because it's so bumpy so I took a photo of it so it's not the best.
And here is my layout of one of our pups, Bentley, playing in the snow (I added the date to the layout after I scanned it … can't believe I forgot the date! LOL!) I had a lot of fun digging through my winter stash to create this layout! I wish I could have gotten a better scan of the layout since it looks so much better in person!
Two Ingredient Crock Pot Beef - I did make this a few weeks ago, however, one of the pieces of the packaging stuck to the bottom of the roast when I put it in the crock pot, so we didn't eat it… trying it again :)
Another week and another week's worth of meals to post about! Sunday night we had nachos - always a favorite in our house! I have decided just to post the meals that I have planned for but not necessarily on a particular day ... so on tap for the rest of this week: *Two Ingredient Crockpot Beef Recipe
This layout is about a historic house in Denver that has had haunting claims since it was built in 1890. Here is a link for some background info on the Croke-Patterson Mansion if you are interested. Rick and I had a chance to visit the vacant mansion one evening in Oct 2010.
This layout is of my son during Halloween last year, I always like to take photos of him at the end of the night with all of his treats! He always gets so much candy!!
On this layout I really wanted to use the big Halloween sticker that comes in the October kit, so I picked some simple photos of my son posing in his morphsuit on Halloween 2011. Since my son and two of his pals dressed up in morphsuit we did a whole photo shoot at our town center!! I love the impact of the large sticker!
This next layout is from last Halloween, one of our friends brought a giant pumpkin to the friends house where we gathered for Halloween - so the guys decided to carve it!
This layout is of a photo I took as we arrived at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO in Oct. 2012. During fall break we stayed at the Stanley Hotel - in the haunted room 217 (from The Shining), we did the history tour and the nighttime ghost tour along with touring the grounds on our own both during the day and at night. I knew I had to use some of our trip photos since this kit has both paper and stickers that reference the Stanley Hotel.
I had a lot of fun playing with the September kit from Birds of a Feather Kit Club. You can check it out here!
First up is a simple card - I really love this color combo!!
One of my favorite things about the glitter paste that comes with the September kit is not only that it adds the lovely sparkly glitter without needing additional adhesive but that it also is a bonding agent for the embellishments that I am using the glitter paste on. Love items that can do double duty! :)
This layout is a "Happy Memory" these photos are from the adventure park Selvatica in Cancun. We had an amazing time! I used the glitter paste from the kit to make a border edge on the upper right side, however, I was distracted and left my stencil on too long and the paste dried (oops :) ) So I filled in some of the parts where the paper tore with more glitter paste and finished my layout.
This layout is a photo of our dog, Oswald, on a walk with me the other night - he loved being out in all of the new sites and smells :) It's had to tell in the scan, but I used the glitter paste on the wood piece - I painted some on both sides of the wood piece so it would act as an adhesive on the bottom side.
This layout is a photo of my son being goofy by wearing three hats - the gold phrase "stay gold" was perfect here for him to always keep his innocence. I trimmed the layout in gold and used the gold glitter paste on a wood piece to continue the hints of gold.
