Another sketch and another Disney layout! This time I am using a sketch from Sketches in Thyme. Here is the awesome sketch:

Sketch #389

And here is my take on the sketch:

I was so happy to use up some of my older embellishments and scraps on top of this awesome cloud-like paper from Shimelle. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! If you’d like to see more of my work, follow me on Instagram @onescrappymom71


Monkeying Around

Hello scrappy friends! I am back with my take on a sketch from Sketch N Scrap.

This was such a fun sketch to play with. We are getting ready to return to our favorite place on earth…WDW, so I thought I would scrap some pictures from our last trip to get inspired. I have always taken a picture of my son by the monkeys as he is our “Monkey boy”. I will be anxious to see what the new Toy Story Lank looks like!.I love this line of papers and embellishments from Carta Bella! I used my Pazzle die cutter to cut the barrel of monkeys and title.  So here is my take on the sketch:

Beach life

One of my favorite things to do is to go to the beach. I even bought a beach tent (#redheadlife!!) So when I saw the challenge at Scrap-Challenge-YOUrself, I knew it was a good time to scrap my beach selfie.

The title is also from one of my favorite country songs (that I listen to while chillin on the beach). I also managed to bash some stash and dug into my scraps box!! There’s some scenic route and cherryarte on this page!!!

Midway Mayhem

I hate to think of fall and the cooler weather, but I just ran across these pictures of my daughter’s Halloween dance recital from last year which was a Creepy Circus theme and I just had to break out my scrappy supplies and play!

I found this sketch from Sketches in Thyme and it really inspired me because I could totally see using some red mixed media (in my case, watercolors) for my background).

Here is how it turned out:

I am totally loving this collection and the 6×6 paper pad. I love the little ticket paoer and even used my scraps that were left over from die cutting to back my photo!

I can’t believe my BABY is 17 years old and a senior in high school! For a few years now, we have celebrated birthdays with a homemade cake. This year, my daughter and I decided to make his cake rather eclectic and add all kinds of fun elements including little monsters and mustaches.

I found this awesome sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap and flipped it to fit the orientation of my pictures.  I also was able to dig into my stash and find some fun elements that I had been hoarding. Let me tell you, it’s been a while since I’ve used ribbon on a layout!  I also painted some mint colored chipboard with some stickles to better go with my color theme.

December sketch at Stick it Down

Hello everyone and welcome to December!!  Wow I can’t believe this year has gone so fast!!  I am up on the Stick it Down blog today with the new December double page sketch:


Here is my take on the sketch:

It seems fitting that I used these pictures as this is the way we started off our holidays last year, with a 9 day trip to WDW!! We spent Christmas day on the road and in a hotel room, so I tried to include a lot of fun pictures from the trip. I have to admit, they aren’t the most flattering pictures, but they are definitely real life!!

I hope you get a chance to play along with us this month at Stick it Down! If you are on Social Media, make sure to use the #StickitDown. There is no sponsor this month, but one randomly selected person in the USA will receive a prize pack, so play along!!!

October Double Page Sketch at Stick it Down

This month at Stick it Down we teamed up with the challenge blog White… With One. Their color this month is elephant grey. They’re using our sketches and we’re using 75% white on our pages with a touch of grey. Be sure to read their rules HERE and play along with both challenges. Two for one! How fun!

And here is the double page sketch:

Here is my take on the sketch. I initially thought I would have a hard time using only grey, but it turned out  pretty fun!

Our sponsor this month is 

based out of Auckland, New Zealand, with her digital kits and embellishments! You can view more on her Facebook and Instagram page.

I am GROOT!!

I’m back with…you guessed it…MORE DISNEY PICTURES!! I have to admit I’m having fun scrapping our Memory Maker pictures. This last trip we really took advantage of this and got some fun family pictures. Because the kids are older now, Shane and I had a chance to get several of just us as well, which was great because we were there celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary.

For this layout, I got an opportunity to play with my Invue cutting system and designed the Groot die cut. It was so much fun and I’m really please with how it turned out. I used this sketch from Sketch N Scrap:

Here is my version of the sketch:

Please Stay.

It isn’t often I get to play with new scrappy goodies on the same day that I receive them in the mail, but when I received this paw print paper from Reminisce, I knew I HAD to. The paw on the paper looks JUST like my dog’s paw. I’ve been trying to keep up with my son’s school album and this is from his first day of school this year. Our dog, Marshmellow, is so attached to him and when he had to leave for school after being home all summer, she didn’t take it well. (Poor puppy!!!)

I was excited to try out the Golden Globe challenge at Scrap Our Stash and get out an old transparency that had been gathering dust in my stash. I used part of a winter one from Fancy Pants and layered it over the patterned paper (the center square with the title). I love how it turned out! I also loved the push to make a grid design because it worked great with my pictures. I had also been challenged to use a lot of buttons in a guest designer challenge at ACOT. I have been pinning several button designs lately and this seemed like the perfect time to try it out!

And with that being said, here is the final layout:

The B side of this paper has a bunch of 3×4 cards that I love as well. I guess I need to buy another sheet, huh?
