I’ve been playing more with mixed media and I really like how my layout turned out. What’s your favorite technique for mixed media? Leave me a comment!

Summer Dreams

One of the benefits of living through a pandemic is that it forces us to spend more time at home. As an only child, I have always exceled at this type of activity! The challenge this month at Scrap Challenge YOUrself is to scrap about Summer Dreams.  I chose this picture of myself sitting in the backyard with my dogs because I work so much that my dream day is to just hang out with my puppies and enjoy the warm weather! Although those days don’t happen very often, I love when they do!

Pinkfresh

I was super excite to play with some of my new Let’s Stay Home collection from Pinkfresh as well as a little mixed media. Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to follow me on Instagram @onescrappymom71

Movie Night at Kidani

Most of the time when we go to Disney, we literally hit the ground running, do massive hours in the park each day until we fall, exhausted into bed only to do the same thing each day we are there. However, on our 2017/18 trip, we decided to enjoy some of the activities at the resort. This was the first time we had stayed at Kidani (our home resort). We were there for 9 days, so we thought it best to pace ourselves. Also, it was rather cold/raining some days since there was a polar votex sweeping the nation (still warmer than the sub-zero temps at home!!).

I used this awesome sketch from sketch-n-scrap to highlight movie night at the resort. We sort of came upon this on accident as we were exploring the common areas. We even got free popcorn!

And here is my take:

So this happened…

While we were on our cruise, we stopped at the beach at Harvest Caye. My family are not really “beach” people, but most of the rest of the extended family are so we stopped over to visit with them between our excursions, etc. As luck would have it, one of the kids (not mine, thank goodness!!) stepped on a jellyfish. To be fair, he was 5 so he really couldn’t read the sign. But it was worth documenting. The jellyfish stung him, and I don’t know if you all know what you have to do for a jellyfish sting, but it’s rather gross and again…so glad I didn’t have to be the giver or receiver of that one!!  But the event was worthy of making my cruise album and I used this awesome sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap:

Here’s my take on the sketch (I switched the photos around)

Being a tourist

So being a scrapper and a tourist are a dangerous combination…mostly for my poor (probably suspecting) family.  While we were on our cruise we did several shore excursions. This day, we went to Costa Maya and it had lots of fun things to do and these wonderful photo ops just especially for the scrapper in me! Luckily, my family is used to it. There’s even a picture of ME in it (I’m the one with sun glasses). Because I actually scrapped a layout with myself in it, I thought it fitting to being inspired by the polka dot challenge at Scrap Challenge YOUrself. I also did a SERIOUS stash dive and used some Carolees papers from forever ago as my polka dot paper. While home social distancing, I used some time to reorganize my patterned paper and it inspired me to use some of my older lines up! (There’s also some Love, Elsie on there as well!!  How old is THAT??)

So here is my layout:

I just have to mention I was so glad to have a layout where I could use these little birds. It’s the little things, right? Take care out there and wash your hands!!

Craft on, my friends!!

Scrapping Disney

So since our upcoming trip to Disney is canceled due to COVID-19, I thought I would entertain myself with scrapping my Disney photos and pretending I was there anyway! LOL

I found this awesome sketch from Sketches In Thyme and it was perfect for my pictures:

Summer Hoopla

I love scrapping summer layouts in the winter. It’s always such a bright, cheery feeling! I found this sketch from Sketch N Scrap and thought it would be fun for my daughter’s hula hoop pictures. She won, by the way! 🙂

Beer and Wine Festival

You might be a scrapper if you go to a beer and wine festival and collect all the coasters and stickers to use on your scrapbook page! LOL  Also…there was a photobooth that we HAD to play with!

I also, LOVED this sketch from Sketch N Scrap and thought it fit perfectly with the items I collected.

Here is the sketch:

It’s Forky!!!

So one of the biggest things I was hoping to do when we went to Hollywood Studios (besides ride Smuggler’s Run) was to meet Forky. Much to my dismay, I learned he was no longer making appearances in the park. 😦

But I did want to document my love for him…I have so many shirts and assorted Forky memorabilia, so I took a picture of this toy in one of the shop windows while we were there.

I used this sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy:

I used my 6×6 Toy Box paper pad by Carta Bella as I am trying to use up some of my stash of 6×6 paper pads. I also designed this die cut Forky with my Pazzle Invue. I’m really happy with the way it turned out. Here is my version of the sketch:

I even STAMPED on this layout and I never stamp!!  New year…using up OLD stash!!
