Christmas Gift Cards 2017 layout

Hi you all a quick post before heading to work :) I got this fun layout it will be the opposing page of the layout I did of my hubby and his kitchen aid since it was the same night.
I used my counterfeit kit: Sprinkle and I used the #310 sketch over at Sketches in Thyme for my inspiration:
I turned to work for the pictures I had. I loved using the poinsettias that were in my kit for that cute border.
Blogger is being a little pesty tonight so can't add the close up pictures, will try to add them tomorrow :) Thank you for stopping by today to see what I'm up too in my little corner of the world.

Sprinkle for a Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style challenge

Good Morning a short post today :) It's been a busy week at work with long hours, but I can say I've been creating each day so far this year :)
We got a cute journaling sketch for our challenge today over at Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style challenge:
This is what I created with it:
Sprinkle is the name for my 1st kit as a new Master Forger over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog so thought it was a fitting title for the layout. Using items from the kit and a piece of cardstock from my stash I created this layout :) A great way to start out the New Year:
 This is what it looks like on the layout :) I used alot scraps to layer behind the pictures. I used Christys Beautiful Life's 30 days of sketches 2, use the sketch that she featured on Jan 3rd video.
 The card once again adding the red burlap pointsetta to the layout for embellishments
Pictures of my kit that I took for my blog post. I figured this was worthy for a scrapbook layout of my newest journey this year. If you would like to see more about Counterfeit Kit Challenges you can find it here. And if you would love to play along with this sketch you can find that over at Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style I look forward to seeing your creation.
Have a fantastic day today!

Love the Better Part of the Day-Counterfeit Kit challenge

Inspired by Nature is the challenge for us today over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Lisa is challenging us to feature something from nature on our project today. We love the outdoors in the summer so this was an easy challenge for me and I hope one for you too. The kit had so many nature inspired items in it that this is what I did with mine:
 Dave and I out and about taking a walk in our yard. Love this time cause it's the Better part of the Day for us. I used the flower die cuts and the nature inspired pattern paper that was in my kit for the layout
 My journaling
 The love of my life :)
 My title work
The last cluster and the picture of the sunflowers that year. For my layout inspiration I've been watching Christy's Beautiful Life on Youtube and this month she's been doing a series of 30 days of sketches and this came from Jan 16th's sketch. Also should work for the challenge over at Scrappin N Chattin group for the green & yellow color combo.
Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation linked up over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.

Winter Wonderland

Hello :) I did this layout last night and the storm was taking place Saturday :) One good thing about doing a layout a day is I can actually stay current with what is happening at the moment. This layout came about from 2 pictures: 1 of the storm and 1 of the cleanup. We got about 2.5" that day. Today another 3" of snow is making for more cleanup.
I used the sketch over at Let's Get Sketchy for my layout inspiration:
this is my interpretation of the sketch
 I used just about all my snowflake paper in my current counterfeit kit: Sprinkle for the layout. Even used a paper to get my title for the layout and my cluster points.
 The journaling
 close up of the pictures, the photo mats were something I received as a prize a long time ago and glad to finally get a good spot to use them :)
and that funky title I created with the paper, yes at the moment the property looks like a Winter Wonderland. Thank you for stopping by today checking out what I've been doing in my little corner of the world.

My List to See

Good Morning :) Sorry so quiet, been scraping each day, but not had the time to post them yet. Guess I need to work on prepping the blog atleast weekly to get the pages up on here. Today is the 3rd week to the new month's challenge over at Lasting Memories: Word Play is the theme this month - use some form of the word on your layout - can be in the title, in the journaling or even on an embellishment.and this week's challenge is Dream - you could use dream, dreamer, dreaming, daydream, etc.:
  I have dream in my journaling. This has been a dream and a life long passion of mine to see and be in each of the United States. This layout was produced during LOAD1017 Day 23 prompt:
I’ve got a secret……love – tell about something you have dreamed of doing with your life but have never acted to make it happen. You might reveal if you would do it if you could possibly make it happen today.
  This is something I had always wanted to do throughout my life seeing all 50 states. The blue states are the ones I have been to and seen even just for a little bit through my life. So I guess now I have a bucket list to conquer :)
I used lots of scraps from my 100 Pattern Paper challenge pile on this layout plus a Black/Orange/Purple challenge that month over at Scrappin N Chattin.
 used some word stickers too
My journaling.
Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation real soon over at the Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenge blog.

Love Today layout for Use Your Stuff challenge

Hello Hello :) We are back into the swing of things with the New Year, the holidays are over and 2018 has started. So that means new challenges too. At Use Your Stuff challenge blog this week's challenge is: New Year, New Fun - Create a project with something new (ie, tool, paper, embellishment etc) or highlight something new in a photo:
Some cool pictures of the flowers in our garden August 17, 2013. So what is new in this layout :) you may ask. The die-cuts are new, the gems and the Love wood veneer is newly open :) Got that last year for Christmas. The others I got over the holiday at Hobby Lobby when visiting Tammy and the grandkids. It was to cold to do anything other than play board games or head to the mall and shop :) We did both.
 I grabbed a Project Life card from my cart that has the cards sitting on the top of it, used ot for the journaling. Added lots of die cuts to the layout.
 Really loved using the different textures in the title of the layout.
 More die cuts and gems, plus a word phrase from the die cut pack.
 and more die cuts and gems, plus a word phrase from the die cut pack. Everything on jthis layouot came from my Counterfeit Kit-Sprinkle. I made sure to add a layer of that vellum to the layout. This layout was a lift from this past week's Glitter Girl's episode over at you tube.

My Spice to Life layout for Lasting Memories challenge

Good Morning and welcome to a new week challenge over at Lasting Memories January our theme is "Word Play" and our first challenge this week is "Love".

LM #377 - Love - use some form of the word "Love" on your layout.
This can be in your title, in your journaling, or even on an embellishment, just show us some form of the word Love ( love, lovely, loving, etc.) on your layout.
This is the layout I created for this challenge:
 This is the Spice to my Life :) my husband and this is a recent picture of him over the summer when we were on vacation. This is also a layout I created during LOAD1017: Day Thirteen: I’ve got a secret……ingredient – that one thing that your day is not complete without. My Special ingredient to my life and without him in my life everyday it would be incomplete :) My hubby when he is on the road and don't get to see him he calls me. He's my heart and my soulmate.
 I was able to find a variety of Project Life cards in my stash that had the word Love on it and used plenty of them on this layout. What is cool about project life cards are that they can be used in place of a picture which adds some spice to the layout. I went for a grid style layout for those cards and
scattered sequins and glitter stars on the layout for the embellishment. Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing what you create for this week's fun challenge
