The Headless Horseman

One of the reasons I love Fort Wayne is all the cool things there are to do here.  This year at the last minute we decided to go down to the old Fort and do a lantern tour.  While we were there, the Headless Horseman showed up!!

I used this sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:

Layout Sketches due November 30th

and designed the die cut myself using my Pazzles.  This is what I came up with:

Fright Night at Six Flags

This has become a family tradition for us and this year was no different.  Our entire family are coaster junkies and the park is always decorated for Halloween so well.  This year we managed to find some of the park characters dressed up for Halloween and YES, I was actually included in the picture!!  So I took a prompt from the Challenge YOUrself blog to use sprays and inks to scrap these photos!  I have to be honest, sprays and inks are a little outside my comfort zone, so I really did enjoy the push.

Here is what I came up with…

He’s all the way up

Here is another one of my son as I  continue to work my way through his high school album.  Logan has taken dance since 5th grade.  This year he had a solo the hip hop song they danced to was “All the way up”.  He absolutely HATED his costume this year, but you get what you get, right?  I still think he rocked it!

So here is another Let’s Get Sketchy inspiration using the Nov 1st sketch:

I used up a bunch of scraps for this one.  I have also started digging through the mountains of patterned paper I seem to hoard and found this really cool one from Glitz Design that I didn’t know I had!

Stash bash

I have been trying to keep up with my son’s school pictures so I don’t have to do it all last minute before he graduates.  I used this sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy as inspiration.

I also had a bunch of OLD school-themed scrapbook supplies and decided to bash my stash.  I used the rest of a sheet of letter stickers as a border and mixed up my title to use up another sheet.  So here is what I came up with:

Memory Makers pictures

If you have ever been to WDW, there is an option to purchase pictures taken by their photographers.  The last time we went, we did this and there were some great pictures taken, but when I went to scrap them, I was slightly more challenged because they didn’t really “go” with anything.  So I’ve decided to do them in sort of a project life style.

This month, I also combined by pictures with a layout challenge from Scrapping4funchallenges

Here is what I came up with using the bottom tic tac toe row (bling, quote, and patterned paper)…

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!

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!
