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!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stick It Down – August Double Page Sketch

Hey everyone!!  It’s time for the reveal of the double page sketch at Stick It Down Challenge blog!  Here is the amazing sketch…

This month I decided to get caught up on some of my pet pictures.  This is Annee, our sweet beagle.  My husband was sitting by her a few months ago and caught these cute candid shots that truly capture her personality.

On this layout, I tried a couple different techniques than I usually do.  I decided the main picture of Annee was just too cute, so I wanted to feature it in some way.  So I blew it up to an 8×10 and cut around it so that she really popped off the page.  I added dimensional adhesive to mount the photo higher than my other photos.

I also created a paw print mask with a punch.  Using some of my scrap paper, I punched a couple paw prints in them.  I was originally going to use the punched materials, but realized I could use the punched paper as a mask instead.  It worked like a charm!  You can use textural paints or just an ink pad.  Both work GREAT!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I hope you get a chance to play along with us this month!  Check out the awesome prize…

Christmas in…August?

Image result for number of days until christmas 2017 Only 144 days!!

OK, so I missed July, but I’m only a couple days late, right?  That’s actually pretty good for me!  🙂  I took on a Pinterest challenge at A Cherry On Top to scrap my Christmas morning pictures!

Here is the layout we were given for inspiration (I’m sorry, I don’t know the source…so if this is your work…you did an AMAZING job!!)

And here is what I did with it…

I only had 2 pictures that I wanted to use, so I made the other squares from Photoplay patterned paper…adn I think the camera paper is Studio Calico.  I recently reorganized my stash and had put all my Christmas papers/embellishments together…I’m so glad I did because it was WAY easier to find what I needed!!  I made the hat on my Pazzle.  It was actually on a penguin, but I just wanted this style Santa hat…so I just cut that.  I’m not a big machine sewing kind of gal, so my and my Sharpie did some faux stitching on this.

Anyway…thanks for stopping by!  I am hosting another Pinterest Challenge at ACOT.  The winner receives a $5 gift certificate to the store…so come on by and play along!!  If you do…let me know you found the challenge on my blog!
