Such a fun sketch to play with too. This is what I created with it:
 I had fun using stickers and washi tape for the strips on the card. Found the fun crown in a baggie of children chipboard but I think this could go for an adult too.
 Brought the sketch to the inside of the card just need to add the stamped sentiment to it :) Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation with fun sketch!

2017 Fall Pickings for Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style challenge

If you are looking for the Sketch N Scrap post you can find it here 
Hello again :) My 2nd post of the day is using this fun sketch over at Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style. The mid month sketch for October is courtesy of the talented Emma Pescott: Emma has created a great journaling card for us to work with:
 
 I created a fun card to go with my layout:
Fall has finally come to Pennsylvania and we are finally seeing the color changes here. We generally grow pumpkins each year for the grands to choose on and then make a craving party out of it and have them decorate our house too :) Well this year it isn't happening with the yield we ended up with pumpkins. We do have pumpkins for them to choose from but that is about it :)
 A fun layout out I created with one of this month's Page Maps sketches:
I flipped the sketch and I also used 1 photo for the 2 small photos. Cool sketch :)
 My journaling card when where they had their journaling at :)
 Buddy made for a very nice photo with the wagon full of pumpkins this year.

 The pumpkins that we grew, oh my not even a dozen! But we have some for the grands to choose from if they come by soon, I noticed yesterday that a few are rotting already.
I used this layout for LOAD1017 Day 14: …musical gift – these are about as much as I am capable of! I went off prompt and created this layout. I did try to play an instrument in band in my Jr High years, but it didn't amount to much a few lessons and that was it and no pictures and not much of a memory for a whole scrapbook page layout. So went with a fall layout page instead.
This layout also falls under Scrappy Sisters Scrap September Day 27: Use Scraps: All scraps on this layout except the background paper. I've got about 3 or 4 collections of fall paper scraps together in a baggy with the left over papers from another collection that I'm trying to use up before cutting into a new fall paper pad I got with my birthday GC at Michaels.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a fantastic day today!



Artsy for Sketch N Scrap challenge

Today's challenge over at Sketch N Scrap is this fun sketch by Heather:
No automatic alt text available. 
and this is the layout I created with it:
 Fun layout of Tristan when he was a toddler. He sure was having fun with the finger paints.
 Title and journaling. The orange paper is a Doodlebug paper from 2002. Also this paper came from my current counterfeit kit. This also came from LOAD1017 day 10: …claim to fame – strut your stuff & show off a little! I've done my claim to fame layouts already in past LOADs so I went off prompt with this layout of my youngest grandson when he was toddler. Just having fun with his finger paints.
Fun title created with some foam alphas I got from Walmart. Thank you for stopping by today

We are hosting a cyber crop event! Go over and join in on the fun!

Sweetest Memories for a Use Your Stuff challenge

 If you are looking for the Stick It Down challenge you can find it here

Today the challenge over at Use Your Stuff , Chris C. has challenged us Since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month I would like to see PINK in your project. Pink it is :) I have breast cancer that runs in my family, but I also have lots of little girls in my family so I used today's prompt to focus on this cute picture of my 1st Great-Granddaughter taken a couple of years ago, she is now 2 1/2 years old:
Our 1st Great Granddaughter, picture of her at 1 week old. Put in the speech bubbles what she is doing so far. I added pink for accents to the layout. This layout came about from LOAD515 Day 24:
Pop-up Video! This was an MTV classic. As you watched the music video, snippets of info would ‘pop up’ about the musicians, the song, the set and more. Share the info nuggets of your story using speech bubbles.
I had fun creating this layout :) Thanks for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation for this challenge.

At The Train Yard for a Stick It Down challenge

Good Morning and welcome to today's challenge over at Stick It Down. The Double Page team got to create with this fun sketch:
 
This is what I created with the sketch:
 This layout is from our adventure in Honesdale, PA and this part of the adventure was when we were checking out the train yard on our way to the museum. The sketch as awesome for this layout.
 The left side of the layout
 The right side of the layout
 I used some project life cards on a couple of layouts from this series and wanted to continue using them for cohesiveness including the brads as I had brads on the other layouts too. A picture of my shoes works for the Scrappy Sisters Scrap September challenge Day 26 Your Shoes prompt.
 It's always fun catching Dave enjoying what he sees
 Another project Life card. and a picture of a train snow plow
My journaling and a stamped image to finish it up :) I've been enjoying doing the layout for this road trip.

Adventurous for a Use Your Stuff challenge

Happy October to you :) Hopefully the blog won't be so quiet this month as fall is here in my area so cooler temperatures means more time in the house. The harvest is just about done too.
Use Your Stuff challenge today comes about from Gail's challenge The Blues (use blue as a predominate colour on your project).
 I used a variety of blues on my layout including a piece of wrapping paper the blue and silver stripe. Now I would have never thought to use wrapping paper, but the 30 day challenge over at the Scrappy Sisters day 9 was Wrapping Paper. I was adventurous with the layout too using a variety of different types of paper: the wrapping paper, mulberry paper and vellum. 
I used the sketch No96 over at The Memory Nest for my layout
I love the simplicity of this sketch.
This month is the members only LOAD (layout a day) over at Scrap Happy so this is the 1st layout for that too :) The theme is I've got a secret.... This prompt was to do a layout about a “secret” peek into what you consider your best physical feature or personality trait. I went with a personality trait, this is a trait I've had since growing up taking on just about any dare my friends would ask me to do!  and now a days I love the adventure of seeing new places, trying new foods and just enjoying life
Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation for Use Your Stuff challenge.

Life is an Adventure - Use Your Stuff challenge

Good morning :) Busy day ahead today with getting tires for the car and getting it inspected :)
This week's challenge over at Use Your Stuff, Karrie has challenged us to mix up some old and new stash! It does not have be newly released, only something you have most recently added to your stash. And let's say "old" is something you've had longer than a year.
So I have used a very old collection: Three Bugs in a Rug-Playful Caboodle Kit and the new was the bling I added to the layout:
 This layout came about from a challenge that we had over in the Yahoo Scrappin N Chattin group :) A 24 hour challenge with using a collection and a sketch :) I made it a point to add the bling for something new for this challenge. I have enough paper left to make a companion layout to go with this page next to it :)
 This beautiful bridge was on the grounds of the Stoystown Antique Tractor show that we attended with our club. For a 3 day show we got to spend time with friends and got to see alot of the area :) This last day was when we finally got a chance to get some photos of the bridge as a car was parked in front of it most of the weekend.
 This layout also fits for the Scrappy Sisters Scrap September challenge #1: Selfie (On of me in the bridge). Their challenge is a list and they are uploading a video a day for the challenge too, so it's been fun watching the videos and getting lots of ideas and tips too. Lets see how many more of these challenges I can get done within a week :)
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing what you create fir this fun challenge over at Use Your Stuff challenge blog.

Philadelphia and Erie Railroad for a Lasting Memories challenge

Good Morning :) Happy Sunday to you :) We've had some great weather this week for it being the beginning of Fall, high 80s and their saying we may break a record tomorrow.
Today is the last challenge for this month over at Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenges. The theme this month has been All About Patterns and this week's challenge is Chevrons. Use some chevron papers on your layout:
 I created this layout for LOAD216 Day 27: It was a Geography (the study of the physical features of the earth and its atmosphere, and of human activity as it affects and is affected by these, including the distribution of populations and resources, land use, and industries.) prompt which you could look at so many things with this prompt. The layout of the land so to speak. So I did a little peace of our world with this layout. The abandon railroad bank on the edge of our property. Our own little Rails to Trails in our backyard :) Wish I would have thought of that when I typing up the journaling :) We enjoy walks up through there quite often. A little history of the railroad added to the journaling too.
Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation to this prompt over at Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenges.
