Let Freedom Ring

We have a new sketch up at Stuck?! and here is my layout to share with you.

Lady Liberty!  During my visit to NYC in 2012 I was finally able to see her with my own eyes!  I have to say it gave me the chills.  What a delightful site and I highly recommend everyone to experience this. 

For this layout I used my April kit from Studio Calico.  All the yummy embellishments are from the kit as well.  Just look at the banner made of wood and the metal tabs with the punched stars.  It was a fun kit to work with along with a fun sketch to follow.  Here are a few close ups.

and now for the sketch...  I flipped it to accommodate my picture.

Be sure to link up by April 29 for a chance to win some goodies, chosen by random.org.  For full challenge rules and inspiration pop on over to Stuck?!

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping to you!

Color Run

I have a new layout to share with you today for Challenge YOUrself.  "Something Trendy" is this months challenge.  All you have to do is include a minimum of three trendy products in your layout and dont forget to include YOUrself in the picture.  My trendy items are - sequins, washi tape and wood veneer.

Here I am, with my DIL at the finish line of my first 5K run and it happened to be a color run.  All I can say is NEVER underestimate yourself!  This girl does not run and I have never ran a day in my life until training for this event.  I ran the entire 3.2 miles.  Are you kidding me?  I was so proud of myself!  Now I'm wanting more.  Running is actually creeping into my daily workouts.  The next local color run is Sept 27 and guess who is running in it?  Yep, this girl :)

This layout was pretty simple to put together.  I used a varitey of colored mists with my 12x12 sunburst mask.  I went through my goodie stash when it came to embellishing, picking out what I felt was "trendy".  Here are a few close ups for better details.

Now its your turn!  Go have fun with it!  Be sure to link up by May 5 for a chance to win some scrappy goodies!   Hop on over to Challenge YOUrself now for complete details and for some yummy inspiration!   I look forward to seeing your creations!

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping to you.

Best Friends Vacation

Hello and happy Tuesday to you! 
We've got a new sketch up at Stuck?! today and I have my take to share with you!

This is my gf and I on a girls vacation.  It was a scrappy one too, we went on a scrapbook cruise.  So much fun was had.  I'd love to do it again!  This photo was in Cozumel, one of our port stops.  Just look at the Caribbean behind us, so beautiful.

The background map paper is by Simple Stories, part of the Urban Traveler collection.  I just love the muted colors.  The embellishments are by Fancy Pants, from the ephemera pack of the Wonderful Life collection.  My layered chipboard 'vacation' is by We R Memory Keepers and an older part of my stash.  As for the picture.  I cropped it as to how I wanted it to look and I then printed it out 8x10, cut it into thirds and journaled on a portion as well.  Here are some close ups...

Lets not forget the sketch to follow for this challenge

I do hope that you can join in with us.  Go have fun with it and be sure to link up by April 29 to win some fun goodies!  Be sure to check out Stuck?! for some inspirations and for further details.
Thanks so much for stopping by and happy scrapping to you!
