July 1 - Let's Scrap Sketches

Happy July!!  Hard to believe we are half way thru the year!!

Let's start off the 2nd half of the year with some scrappiness...  and a fabulous sketch!!

This is such a great sketch with lots of options to make it work for you.  I had these beach pictures that worked great, even it they aren't circles, but that is the great thing about sketches, you can make them to work for you.  I also brought some stamps out to make the netting across the top.

Go stop by Let's Scrap Sketches for some other great inspiration and get your layout in for a chance at a fabulous prize!!

Sketches in Thyme #281

I trust everyone is having a great start to summer and what better to celebrate summer than a new sketch and layout of my two baseball cutie nephews!!  Baseball is all about summer!!

We have a great sketch from Jenessa Franco, one of four fabulous sketch designers over at Sketches in Thyme.  This is a great sketch to use up some that scrap paper that is laying around and that is exactly what I did.

I had this great paper pack for Baseball from Paperhouse that I have been using while the twins are playing ball being on the Twins team the red and blue just works perfectly.  I had a bunch of scraps left over and was able to use them for this layout!!

Be sure to join us with one or all 4 sketches this month for a chance to win an awesome tool from Just Imagine Crafts!!

Let's Scrap Sketch Reveal

Happy June 15th!!  Can't believe this month is halfway thru and the year is almost halfway done - where has the time gone!!

Know while these pictures are from last Easter they worked great for the sketch this week over at Let's Scrap Sketches

I won this fabulous Eastery/Springy line from Bella Blvd last year and thought it worked great for these Easter Egg dyeing pictures - back in the day when I was kid (a long, long, time ago) all you got was basic colors for egss and maybe some stickers to add to them... now you can do all kinds of fun things when dyeing Easter eggs.

So hop (no pun intended off my Easter layout-ha) on over to the Let's Scrap Sketches blog and see the other awesome layouts by the design team and get yours in for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to any online store!!

Let's Scrap Sketches June 1st reveal

Hello there... been a while since I have done any posting, but with good reason... the past few months have been some I would really like a do over and maybe I will post about that soon.. but for today I am here with a fabulous sketch from Let's Scrap Sketches!!
I mean there are so many ways you can work with this awesome sketch!!  You have double pages, break it apart for single pages, flip around, the possibilities are endless!!  I kept to the original for the most part with some minor changes.  I have been wanting to scrap these pumpkin carving sketches for a while now and this sketch worked great for the pictures I had.  This was so much fun with our family that we have decided to make it a tradition every Halloween!!
Be sure to get your sketch in by the 15th for a chance at a $10 gift certificate to ANY online store!!

Sketches in Thyme #269

Happy March everyone!!  This week at Sketches in Thyme we are working a fabulous sketch by Sara Mischler.  I really love the versatility of this sketch there are so many options to go with.  I happened to have the perfect paper laying on my desk, from a clean up in my scrap room, that also uncovered this picture of my nephew during All Stars last ball season.

I loved this paper from KaiserCraft it just worked perfectly with our team colors of  black and gold!  Be sure to check out all the other great sketches this month and get yours entered for a chance at  a gift card from Creative Embellishments.

Let's Scrap Sketches

Can you believe we are already in the middle of March - this year is flying by!!
We have a fabulous sketch over at Let's Scrap Sketches starting today and it is appropriate seeing as all I have had in my area is rain the past few days.

Even though my pictures have nothing to do with rain, they worked great with the sketch - a little back story - every year we try to send out photo cards at Christmas.  This year while at the beach for Thanksgiving we happened upon these fabulous outfits and I knew that we could have EPIC christmas cards with them.  It is a good thing my sweet in-laws like to play along with our schemes - LOL

Exciting news!! Let's Scrap Sketches!!

Happy March 1st!!!  And it is blowing in like a lion - we are expecting some uber strong thunderstorms today.  

Wow, March 1st, so far this year is flying by and I have some exciting news to start the month off with....  after about a year hiatus I am happy to announce that I have been invited back to the Let's Scrap Sketches Design Team and I am super excited to be back!!  We have awesome sketches twice a month that are sure to get you scrappy mojo flowing and a chance to win some great prizes too!!

We start March off with this fabulous 2 page sketch which worked great with these slip-n-slide pictures I had of my nephews and who doesn't love a slip-n-slide on a hot summer day??

And in a effort to use some of my stash of Echo Park paper (that I secretly hoard) I thought this turned out right cute - sometimes I think a busy background takes away from the pictures but in this case it turned out just right!!

You have until March 15th to join us and get your sketch posted for a chance to win gift certificate to The Scrapbook Circle!!

Sketches in Thyme #264

Happy February!!  I think we just skipped winter this year... as I am writing this listening to the neighbors weed eater with our back door wide open because it feels more like April here in Alabama...  I already have a case of spring fever going!!

So this week at Sketches in Thyme we have a fabulous sketch by Bev Code and while I have a case of spring fever I used this sketch for some long overdue Halloween pics I ran across of the twins/wrestlers.

Sketches in Thyme #259

Happy New Year folks!!  Let me tell you I am glad for the new start!!!

For those that didn't know, I lost my sweet sister, Annaeke, right before Christmas - it was totally unexpected but I know she is in heaven rejoicing!!  But our lives will never be the same without her around!!

I found time this past weekend at one of annual scrappy retreats to finish this layout which I absolutely adore by they way - there are just some many options you can do with this sketch!!

and yes the title is a bit of a play on words considering my name, but it was taken by me in Savannah, Ga so I reckon it just made sense!! ;)

Hop on over to Sketches in Thyme this month and check out all the other fabulous layouts and sketches and get yours in for a chance at a fabulous prize pack!!1
