The Snoopy Dance

Hey everyone!  I have a fun layout to share with you today!  If anyone is a love of Peanuts, they know Snoopy is a beagle.  Well, if you have ever owned a beagle, you know they actually do the Snoopy dance like in the cartoon.  I’m pretty sure Charles Schultz must’ve owned a beagle.

I wanted to use this sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy

I added some extra pictures to the sketch to complete the series of shots.  I designed the Snoopy die cut using my Pazzles Creative Cutter and the font for the title was a free font called Peanuts (appropriately titled, I believe!) I was also able to use up a bunch of scraps and an old piece of ribbon!

Here is my take on the sketch:

This year during his Spring Break, Logan took a lifeguard training and became a certified life guard.  He spent the entire spring break doing it and we were so proud of him for accomplishing this.  When he was younger he had swam on a swim team, so we knew he was a good swimmer, but this took a lot of dedication and he rocked it!!

I used an awesome sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.  I also used up a BUNCH of my scraps and some older embellishments I have been hoarding.  I think the little water droplets were called Skittles, maybe??  Either way, it was nice to make a dent in some of my older stash.  There’s even some old Chatterbox paper!!  I also followed some inspiration from a spelling challenge at A Cherry on Top to use the word SPELLING.  I used a Sketch, Packaging, Enamel Dots, Lily Bee, Layering, ink, nine strips of paper and grey ribbon.

Here is the sketch: 

And here is my layout:

Mark another one done for the school album!!

Scrapping School Pages

I am trying so hard to keep up with both my children’s school scrapbooks.  My son is in high school and my daughter is in her last year of college.  So I think I’d better get busy!!  I did have some added motivation this month with a Scrapfriends challenge!!

I combined the challenge on Rochelle Spear’s Blog to add at least 3 school supply items and this sketch:  on the Rewind sketch challenge blog.

So here is what I ame up with:  

Let me just tell you I dug deep into my school stash!  Some of these supplies are from when I first started scrapping in 2004!!!!  It’s fun to be able to use old stash and make it new again.  It’s also pretty awesome to know that I have another school page in the books!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!!  I would love it if you would become a follower or follow me on Instagram @onescrappymom71

Hello Fall

Hello everyone!  Today in the Midwest, the weather is mild and the leaves are falling.  A perfect time to scrap a fall page!  With the help of this awesome sketch from

Let’s Get Sketchy:  

I was able to get a fall scrapbook page done. I also used some inspiration from

Scrap Our Stash to inspire me. 

I used the bottom row that included an arrow, woodgrain paper and a circle.

This is my sweet girl, Marshmallow.  Several years ago, I was really into the large scalloped circles and so I dug into my stash and used this instead of the smaller doily on the sketch.  I also made a pretty good dent in my buttons as well!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room…

Now that you have that song stuck in your head… 🙂

I have been working on my Disney pages again and this time, found a wonderful 2-page sketch from Let’s Scrap:

I loved the grid design and the clusters of embellishments.  So here is my take on the sketch:

I have to admit, I love that “ride” at WDW.  It’s a good place to relax and cool off!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Be Our Guest

So home improvements are not really our “thing” but since my daughter is getting older and took our furniture with her over the summer for an internship, we decided maybe it was time to take down the PowerPuff girls that once inhabited this room and make it more inviting to guests who stay here from time to time.

This is the “after” pictures and I am so pleased with how it turned out.  I followed a sketch from The Memory Nest and the color scheme was perfect for a Mood Board Challenge at A Cherry on Top.

Here is the sketch and Mood Board…

And here is what I came up with…

I’m not sure what our next project will be, but I certainly have the decorating bug now!!

The Glo Run

Well, it looks like I am having fun scrapping some of my race photos from previous years.  It seems there is a race with a different theme about every month (I’m currently signed up for a Hot Cider Run in November!!).  So this was The Glo Run…and it was 80s themed.  So we made our neon tutu’s and hit the trail!  It was really fun!

This layout seemed to fit several challenges out there so I am listing them all here because they are all fantastic challenge blogs!

The first is a rewind sketch challenge by Rochelle Spears.  Here is the amazing sketch:


Here is one of the other challenges that I used as inspiration.  The Wacky Holiday Challenge.  Because I rarely scrap myself, I also wanted to utilize the challenge at Challenge YOUself blog which was to use a die cut.  I designed the glasses and Title with my Pazzle and cut the stars from my Sizzix (old school style!) Finally, I just discovered this awesome blog…it’s Cut It Up and the theme was friendship.  So here is my layout…IMG_8040.JPG

I had a great time digging through my stash for some old bling and combining it with my new Emoji papers!
