Everyday Bliss

 Hello, hello friends!  

It's a new month so do you know what that means?  A new challenge has been released at Challenge YOUrself and is waiting for you!  This month is about being thankful.  What are you thankful for?  Me, you ask?  COFFEE!!

Mmm... that first sip of coffee in the morning is so good for my soul!  I actually can't get to the coffee pot fast enough when waking up. I know all of you coffee lovers can relate.

For this layout I used a variety of stashed product.  Paper strip tabs, fussy cut flowers, tags, frame, wood title, sticker alpha and misc embellies.  I've got an over abundance of stash that needs used up.  



Now it's your turn!  Make some time to get scrappy with us and be sure to share at Challenge YOUrself for your chance to win a fun prize.  Oh, and remember to include YOU in a photo... that's a must!


Thanks so much for stopping by!  I look forward to seeing your creations.

Happy scrapping!

WKND Vacation

Hello friends!  Happy August to you!
Today we are kicking off the new month with a fun challenge at Challenge YOUrself.  It's all about going on vacation.  Who doesn't love to vacation?  We've all got tons of vacay pictures to show off, right?  I know I sure do and here is my take to get you started!


Every year my brothers and I go on a sibling vacation.  In particular, the year 2017 was so fun!  We all enjoyed a long weekend in Key West.  My journaling couldn't have summed it up any better... "full of sun, fun, love, laughter and lots of adventure!"




Now it's your turn to turn some of your vacation photos into a layout.  You'll have some great flashback memories as you're scrolling through your pics too.  

Be sure to share with us at Challenge YOUrself for your chance to win a great prize and remember to include YOU in a photo... that's a must!


Thanks so much for stopping by!  I look forward to seeing your creations.

Happy scrapping!

Live in the Moment

Hello and happy Tuesday to you!

It's a new month so that means we have a new challenge to share at Challenge YOUrself.  This month we have a sketch to follow from Page Drafts.  

I absolutely love following sketches.  It take a lot of the work away and with this one there are a ton of possibilities!  Here is my take for some inspiration...


This is my oldest granddaughter and she is the most adventurous girl ever!!  I just love that about her.  She will try anything.  Every year before school starts we have a "Grammie and Molly day".  This one was spent in Chicago with a full day of sheer fun!!

For this layout I used a mixture of summery papers and embellishments.  Perfect for our summer sunny day in Chicago.




Now it's your turn.  Get creative and use this sketch anyway you choose.  Like I said, so many possibilities with this one!  Check out Challenge YOUrself for full challenge rules and for lots of inspiration.  Oh, and be sure to include YOU in a photo.  That's a must to qualify for a fun prize.


I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy scrapping!

Dream Big

Hello and happy June to you!

Today I'm sharing my current layout for Challenge YOUrself.  
This months theme is Summer Dream and here is my take...


This little guy is our newest grandson, born in August 2019.  I just cant get enough of him.  I love this age when they let you snuggle them and I could seriously do this all day, everyday!

I went in a different direction with this one.  Leaning more into the dream side as opposed to the summer side.  However, my grandson was born in the summer so it all balances out, right?  That's what I love about challenges, the possibilities are endless.  It's all in the eye of the beholder on your take.




Now it's your turn.  Go get creative and have some fun with it!  And remember to include YOU in a photo to qualify for a fun prize.  Check out Challenge YOUrself for full challenge details and for tons of inspiration.


Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you create.

Happy Scrapping.

Love You More

Hello friends!
Happy May to you.  I hope you are all still coping and staying healthy.  Hang in there!  I think an end is in sight for normalcy.

With Mother's Day just around the corner we've got the perfect challenge this month at Challenge YOUrself.  It's all about MOM!  Interpret this any way you like just make sure to include you into the photo.

Here's my take...


These two happy faces are my babies!  I am so proud to be their Mom and I love showing them off any chance I get.  The title "Love you more" is what we share with each other.  We have for years. It's just our quote.




Do you have a quote shared between you and your children?  If so, create a layout and share it with us.  With that being said... early Happy Mothers Day to all you Moms out there!


I hope you find time to join in with us at Challenge YOUrself this month.  Show off them Moms, they deserve it!  Stop by for tons of inspiration and for complete challenge details too.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy scrapping!

Vacay!

Hello friends and happy April to you!
I do hope that you are all staying safe, snug and healthy in these unpredictable times. Hang in there!

Today I'm sharing my layout for Challenge YOUrself.  This month's challenge is scrapping a black and white photo and please remember to include YOU in the photo as well.  I just love working with a black and white photos, it makes designing your page much easier and fun too.

Here is my take...


Ahh, just looking at this layout makes me happy!  Please take me back there!  I'm so ready for warmer weather to stay.  I always look forward to our annual sibling vacations.  Unfortunately, this year it did not happen due to the circumstances.

For this layout I used scrap papers and misc items from my stash.  I'm really trying to use it up.  I'm very pleased with my turnout.  Again, I love working with black and white photos because pretty much anything goes.




Now it's your turn!  Make some time to get your scappy on with this fun challenge.  Be sure to share it with us at Challenge YOUrself for your chance to win a fun prize.  Check us out for all the details and for loads of inspiration!


I'm really looking forward to seeing your creative takes and thanks for stopping by!

Happy scrapping!

Laugh Love

Hello!  And happy Saturday!

It's a new month so that means a new challenge for you at Challenge YOUrself!  This month is all about polka dots.  Who doesn't love polka dots??  I sure do. They are so fun.

With that being said here is my layout to share...


Polka dots galore!  A polka dot background and all four colored grid papers are polka dots too.  I just love how the colorful grid pops.  Along with the added color of the embellishments.

This is our family crew celebrating family day.  We get together once a month to spend some fun, quality time together.  As our four get older and families keep growing it gets harder and harder to see each other.  I really cherish these family days!

For this layout, it's a mish mosh of product from my stash.  Shame on me, but I can't remember who made the background paper.  The colorful grid papers are from Close To My Heart, the Dotty For You collection.  The chipboard and ephemera embellishments are from Hip Kit Club.  I just love how you can mix different collection and make it all work.




Now it's your turn!  Join in with us and link up by April 4 for your chance at a great prize!  Check out Challenge YOUrself for our challenge rules and for tons of inspiration by the talented design team.


Polka dots are so much fun!  I'm excited to see what you come up with.  Thank you for stopping by!

Happy scrapping!
