What a cool sketch this was to use and I can see this being used for a variety of style cards too :) I used it to make a Birthday card for one of our granddaughters:

Apple Blossom layout for Lasting Memories challenge

Hello :) welcome to the last challenge of this challenge series over at Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenge blog. The theme is Scrapbook Cooking Time and this week's challenge is:
Recipe #4 is our challenge for this week:

LM#371 -  2 photos, 2 different fonts for title, 4 patterned papers, 5 buttons, 1 ribbon/trim/twine, 4 die cuts and sprinkle with mist.

1st I gathered up the needed supplies for the layout. So a small page kit is what I think when I look at these recipes. It's really I nice change of pace doing challenges like this:
 This kit less the mist cause I ended changing the color mist to teal because of the letters I used created this layout:
 After the snowy winter we had this year it's always nice to see the pretty colors of spring and the Apple Blossoms were really pretty this year and a bunch of them. I used the sketch over at The Memory Nest for my layout inspiration too:
https://thememorynest.blogspot.com/2017/11/make-it-monday-no-99.html
A really fun sketch to use for the layout, sketch #99.
 My journaling and a cluster around the photo. The photos are from my phone and for some odd reason it took a better picture of the background than of the blossoms itself. It's fun to emphasize something different from the property each spring.
 More clustering
 More journaling
and my title work.Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation for this fun challenge over at Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenge blog. 4 challenges that you can check out and do and were offering up a $20 gift card to an online store to one lucky winner, so get your layouts linked up over at  Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenge blog by Saturday, November 25th for your chance to win!

 and the layout:
We tried to get a photo with the girls and during their 1st Birthday party, also one with the girls and Waylon, but they were not cooperating that day at all. But I did finally get Reyn to calm down when I was showing her the camera and in the process got this fun picture of the 2 of us together. Used some older scrapbook stash for the layout it's been fun just visiting my florals drawer for the 2 layout I did today. Just a few more pictures from this day to be scrapped yet :)
I used this sketch over at our sister challenge site Sketches in Thyme
Perfect for this layout

Autumn Splendor for the Use Your Stuff challenge

Good Morning :) Today over at Use Your Stuff our DT sister  Karrie is challenging us to use up our stuff!!  Yeah that's what we' re always all about here, so this time dig into your patterned papers because we want to see you use 5 or more on your project!
Here is the layout I created using 5 pattern papers:
 This layout came about from LOAD1017 Day11: I've got a secret...... …place – somewhere you’ve always loved to be. 
My home is always my favorite place to be the good the bad and the ugly at times, but always my favorite :) through past LOADs I have scrap many stories about my home and each year just a walkabout on the property gives me the reasons why my home is my fav place to be :) Some of the sunflowers that grew this year within the small pumpkin patch we had. Sketch over at Scrapbook Generations the free sketch during their crop this past weekend. The title chipboard has been in my stash a long time so glad I finally found a place to use it :) 
I used 5 different pattern papers that came from my old 100 Pattern Paper pile (in the process of putting a new one together to use this upcoming year :) as a challenge in October for our 100 Pattern Paper facebook group.
 Some close ups of the layout. My journaling
 5 pattern papers: the background paper, the photo mat paper and seperate framed paper too, the border stripe paper is the oldest paper on this layout coming from 2008 and the orange stripe paper was a branding strip :) Using washi tape for the other border, stickers from a fall collection I have, strips of dazzles stickers and enamel dots to finish it off :)
 That is a chipboard piece that I've been trying to use and finally found a place to use it :)
 A close up of one of the sunflowers and that fits Scrappy Sisters Scrap September challenge Day 18: Close-up. 
Thanks for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation over at Use Your Stuff challenge blog.

 This is a photo of a surprise I received from my husband and the 1st thing I thought was WOW that is a Bird Feeder Merry Go Round hence the title :) It's the beginning and a work in progress with plans to add flowers around it in the spring. So thinking that October Afternoon Midway collection be a great way to show off this large picture.
