Just Us Moments

 Hello and happy December!
Omgoodness!!  Where has the year gone?  So much to do yet before Christmas.  It's always so hectic during these last few weeks of the year, but I wouldn't want it any other way!

With the new month upon us a new challenge has been posted at Challenge YOUrself, just waiting for you.  
Dig out those b&w photos and get to scrapping!

Here is my inspiration for you...


Me and my love out doing what we do best.  Our home away from home at the lake.  I just love these moments.  This is life to me.  Love our alone time together!

For this layout I dabbled into a couple of my older Hip Kit Club scrapbook kits, using up some stash.  This design is out of my comfort zone but I do love how it turned out.  The b&w photo really tops it off.




Now it's your turn.  Time to get creative with those b&w photos and remember to include you in a photo.  That is a must to qualify for a chance to win some goodies.




Be sure to check out Challenge YOUrself for more details and to look at more inspiration from our talented design team.  

Always a big thank you for stopping by.  I truly apprieate your support!

Happy Scrapping,

Happy Little Moments

 Happy November and happy reveal day at Challenge YOUrself.

This month we want you to create a layout using your own  handwritten journaling.  It can be simple with only a few lines or go bigger with paragraphs.  I typically journal on most of my layouts so this one was an easy challenge for me, but I decided to go big with lots of journaling.


This trip, with this girl, was just amazing!!  One that I will never forget for so many reasons.  
This photo, I love it!  It nails our friendship!

Once I started journaling I almost ran out of room.  Ha!!  That sure doesn't happen very often. 
I could have went on and on.
For this layout I used very little to complete it.  One background paper and a package of ephemera.  Both from Hip Kit Club.  It came together quit easy and I'm loving the turn out.  I love those easy layouts.




 Now it's your turn.  Scrap that photo that tells a story and journal your heart out.  Be sure to include you in a photo and share with us at Challenge YOUrself for a chance to win a fun prize.


 Always a big thank your for stopping by!
Happy Scrapping

Boo

 Happy October!!
I can not believe how fast the fall came upon us.  I'm not happy about it either.  This girl is a summer girl, all the way!

Okay, now it's time to reveal our new challenge at Challenge YOUrself.  This month we've got a sketch for you to follow, created by Page Maps.  I love following sketches and having that base to go off of.  Here is my inspiration for you...


Grands make life grand!  Wouldn't you agree?  They are so fun and they absolutely love Halloween, and so does Grammie and Grandpa.  

For this layout I used a Halloween collection by Simple Stories along with some misc. product as well.  I still trying to bash my stash.  I absolutely love how it turned out!!





Now it's your turn!  It's a great sketch with so many possibilities.  Is your head spinning with creative ideas?  I sure hope so!  Be sure to share with us at Challenge YOUrself for your chance to win a fun prize!  Also, stop by to check out all the design team inspiration as well.  






Thank you so much for stopping by!  I appreciate your support!  Now go have fun with it.  I look forward to seeing your layout.

Happy scrapping!

Love My Sunday Fundays

 Happy September my friends!
I am so sad to see the summer coming to an end.  I am not ready to put away my shorts but, I will say, I'm ready to get out my fashion boots.  I love my boots!

With it being the beginning of a new month that means we have a new challenge up at Challenge YOUrself.  This one is all about celebrating!  Show us how you celebrate a good time.

Here is mine for inspiration...




Me and my girls out celebrating Sunday Funday.  I can always count on a good time with this group.  We try to do this once a month.  These kinds of days keep me sane.  Girl time is so good for my soul.

For this layout I used an older Hip Kit Club kit of mine.  I cannot pinpoint the exact one used.  It's probably a mixture of more than one kit actually.  I'm in the process of trying to use up all of my older stash.

I'm just loving the colorful paper and flower clusters against my black & white photo.  Topped off with the black title.  I love how it turned out!!

Now it's your turn!  We all have celebrations to share.  Go get creative and make it into a layout.  




Be sure to share with us at Challenge YOUrself for your chance to win some goodies.  Also, be sure to include YOU in a photo as well.  I'm looking forward to seeing your creation.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Happy Scrapping!

Never Forget This

 Happy August!
Oh my goodness, where is the summer going?  It needs to slow down because I am not ready for the cooler months.

This month at Challenge YOUrself our challenge is about tough times.  How do you handle them?  This really gives you the opportunity to think about it and dig deep.  Here is mine to inspire you.


Losing my mom unexpectedly was the hardest thing I have ever encountered.  It's been years but it's something you never get over, you just learn to live with it.  

For this layout I used bits and pieces of my stash.  I've had this diecut background piece forever.  With it being flowers it was the perfect match.  I really love how it all came together.

Now it's your turn!  Go get creative and be sure to share with us at Challenge YOUrself for a chance to win some goodies.  Also, be sure to include YOU in a photo. 


Thank you so much for stopping by!
Happy scrapping.

Hello Summer

 Hello friends and happy June!

A new month means a new challenge is posted at Challenge YOUrself.  This month we've got a beautiful mood board for you.  It's just full of so many possibilities!!

The colors, the water and the summertime vibe is what caught my attention!  Here is my inspiration...


Me and my honey doing what we love!  Boating the day away as we soak up that sunshine.  
This, to us, is living the good life.

I'm still bashing my stash so for this layout I used one of my older Hip Kit Club scrapbook kits.  The colors and theme matched the mood board perfectly.  I did some fussy cutting, which I love to do, with the flowers.  It came together so fast and I love the turnout!




Now it's your turn!  Study our mood board and get to creating!  
Like I said, so many endless possibilities with this one.  


I look forward to seeing what you come up with.  Be sure to share with us at Challenge YOUrself for your chance at winning some fun goodies.  And remember to include YOU in a photo.  That's a must!

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Happy Scrapping,
