Sorry I am late Sharon….

27 Apr

Good Afternoon Everyone!  I was supposed to be reorganizing my craft room last night and today but my new desk is not going to be arriving until Monday so that means I have the weekend to play in my craft room before I start tearing it apart!  I need to apologize to Sharon for my late post today, I usually post in the mornings but on the weekends I am very slack with posting I am afraid.  Better late than never???

Today I am playing along with the My Mind’s Eye April Sketch Challenge.  This is a very new thing for me because it is a Scrapbook Layout Sketch!  YIKES!  I don’t know anything about Scrap booking so I am really hoping that I will get away with just thinking of it as a really big card.  This is only my second attempt at a layout, my first ended up too bumpy so I had to keep that in mind while creating this…

Here is the Sketch….

MME April SketchAnd here is what I came up with….

MME 001As you all are probably aware… My Mind’s Eye Paper and Stamps are my #1 favorite.  I am always asking Kim at The Cutting Garden to bring in more of their products and she always happily gets me what I want.  They have come out with a new line of stamps and I snagged one of them this week and spent last night making a bunch of cards with it.  You will see loads of creations with my new stamp set in upcoming posts.  Anyway… back to my layout.

MME 002This is my lovely girl Lacy… she is 4 and is a Blue Merle Sheltie 🙂  I used My Mind’s Eye paper some Lost & Found 2 and Lost & Found 3 to create this layout.

MME 003I don’t like how my journaling turned out so I am going to have to work on that, but I am overall pretty happy with how this project turned out.

I hope you all are having a great day and thanks for stopping by!


Could this be the start of something new????

6 Aug

We are starting a monthly challenge at The Cutting Garden!  This is going to be SO much fun!  We will be challenging everyone with a card sketch as well as a scrapbook layout.  Initially I thought oh well, I can play along with the card layout and do a few projects each month using the sketch but then I thought about it a bit and thought, why not give it a go!  It can’t be that hard right????  Mel told me to treat it like a big card.  So I decided to do a double page layout with some pictures of Tony and I when we got married.  Here’s what I came up with….

I am pleasantly surprised with how these pages turned out!  It was a load of fun to make and I actually can’t wait for next months layout!! LOL!!!  I guess I will be doing more scrapbooking in the near future!!! LOL!!

I hope everyone is having a great day and thanks for stopping by!!
