Wild About You

Wow! Can't believe it is August already! where the heck did July go! So the scrappy goals I set for myself last month didn't produce much but I did have fun creating some layouts in July and a couple of cards :) I'm still trying to figure out a crafty schedule with the new job even though it's been a couple of months I still haven't gotten a good solid schedule yet. Sundays and Mondays I try to get crafty, so the rest of the week is a hit and miss. But I try to do something each day related to scrapping it may be a class, a youtube video inspiration, photo editing (I got alot that I need to upload and get printed :). The 1st of the month also provides new inspiration over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and this month the inspiration is different that what I have been creating with over the last couple of months so a fun kit to pull this week :).
Today I did a layout based on the sketch over at The Memory Nest and what a fun sketch it is! This is my take on the sketch:
The Memory Nest sketch:
The sketch was so out of my norm and so fun :) I found these 2 photos of Brad's boys and that started the whole layout :) I don't do that to often starting with the photos and then creating the layout but for this style sketch it worked out and then I knew the embellishments I was grabbing to use and the papers. I still grabbed some things from my July counterfeit kit Just Chillin'.
 A close up of he grid portion of the sketch, I think my arrow is little off :) Zachary looks so much like the Campbell side of the family and Tristan looks like the Bastian side, but they both have Brad's blond hair color when he was young. It's always a good visit when these 2 come over to see us :)
 So I tried my hand at bullet style journaling a challenge over at the Scrappin N Chattin yahoo group
I found a couple of quotes to add to two of the corners of the layout :). The photos of this visit was the inspiration for this layout I will also match this up to Whimsical Musings Challenge #98 - Inspired by visitors


  1. Great double page Tina. Way to go on getting a Aug layout prompt done for SnC and your other challenges too.

  2. New schedules are hard. I hope you can get yours sorted out so you have scrappy time.

    This is a great take on the sketch! It's a cute boy page too! I don't think there's enough boy pages in this world for us to use as inspiration! I have three boys and two daughters. I find it harder to scrapbook for the boys. You did a wonderful LO

  3. Multi-challenge page! They are two cuties, for sure :)

  4. I am loving the sketches over at Memory Nest, they are really fun looking. I need to save them so I can use them when I get back into scrapping! Your layout turned out fabulous Tina! The pictures of the boys are so cute. I thought that the one had some face painting done, lol. Love the papers and embellishments you used as well. Really love those quotes you placed on this layout. I can't believe it is Aug either!!! I'm not ready for Bret to go back to school, but come back to your area he must. Just two more years and then he will be done. Can't believe it! Hugs, Brenda

  5. Tina ... I am with you on the summer months just flying by! I too, cannot believe we are in August!!! Yikes! My babygirl turns 13 and becomes an official teenager on the 19th so I'm ready to grab the tissues and have a sob party! LOL and i'm serious too!

    Your layout is so awesome! I love the papers and colors you brought out to work with and the photos of the boys ... well they steal the show! What cutie pies! I like that you started with the photos first. Sometimes when you try things differently, creative juices flow and you create something wonderful... and that is what you did with this layout! Really like that sketch too, so fun!

  6. This is such a fun layout, Tina! Love all of your cute embellishments and you did a great job with the sketch! Thanks for playing along with us at The Memory Nest!

  7. That is super cute--the red really pops! thanks for joining us at THE MEMORY NEST!

  8. This is great - a grid on top of a plaid - looks fab. Adorable pics too.

  9. I know what you mean about July- I feel like I blinked and it was gone. I hope you find more time to scrap, this is darling. I especially like the little croc/alligator sticker. Thanks for joining us at The Memory Nest!

  10. Love your take on the sketch and all your details!! What a cutie! Thanks for playing along with tMN!!
