Rollin' To Go

Today is my DT day at Scrap Our Stash!  For this challenge we have a sketch to follow.  It's all about circles and I have to admit they have always been a challenge for me so I'm excited to share my layout.

Enjoying a day in Cozumel while on a week long cruise with a some fun scrappy girls.  I was determined to used that cute little chipboard scooter so these pictures were perfect!

For this layout I used the Daily Stories collection by Teresa Collins.  I felt the prints and colors really complimented my photos well.  I put my circle punches to good use for the variety of circles used and added a few misc embellishments to top it off.  For this challenge we were also asked to include homemade flowers, my choice being fringe flowers.  They are quite easy to make too.  Please stay tuned because I will be having a tutorial on how to make these very soon!

Now it's your turn!  Go have some fun with the sketch and be sure to link up with Scrap Our Stash by May 29 for your chance at an awesome prize!  Give us a visit for full challenge rules and for tons of inspiration.

Thanks for much for stopping by!  And as always, happy scrapping to you!

My Kind Of Wonderful

Hello scrappy friends and happy hump day!
Today I am up at Scrap Our Stash with this month's word stash challenge.  Our word is EMBOSS and here is my layout to share.

This is my whole gang and I can never get enough of this!  The day was full of Easter festivities and tons of laughter.  I must also say this, if you have not yet invested in a selfie stick... DO SO NOW!  They are so much fun!

My layout is pretty clean and simple for this one.  I tend to gravitate towards that style, if there is a such thing as a "style".

I used Daily Stories by Teresa Collins, I really like the soft muted colors with my photo and I kept my embellishing minimal, just enough for balance.    To complete this challenge I used

E - embellishements
M - metal hearts
B - butterfly
O - ombre chevron arrows
S - stickles (highlighting hearts, butterfly and one cheron)
S - sticker letters

Now it's your turn!  These word challenges are so fun!  They really get you to use up your stash.  Give it a try and you'll be addicted!

Be sure to link up with us by May 29 for your chance to win!  Give Scrap Our Stash a visit for all the details and for tons of inspiration to get you going!

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!

They Make Me Smile

A new month has begun so that means a new challenge is up at Challenge YOUrself.  For this month's challenge we've got a fun sketch to follow and here is my take.

Aww, my title says it all!  These two make me smile every time I see them.  That's what grandchildren are all about and I just can't get enough of them!

My layout is pretty simple, but with the many strips of printed washi tape it gives it quite a bang!  I just added some mist drops and kept the embellishing light to help with the flow and to cover some white space.  As for the half circles, I traced a stencil, moving it slightly for each one.

Now it's your turn to give it a try!  Go have some fun with it and make the sketch your own!

Be sure to link up with us before June 5 for your chance to win!  Visit Challenge YOUrself for full challenge details and for tons of inspiration to get you going!
