You Make Loving Fun

We've got a fun new challenge for you at The Studio Challenges.  We want you to create a layout inspired by a song.  How fun, right!?  It's up to you on how you want to execute it, whether it be the title or the lyrics, you decide... there are really so many possibilities!

I choose the song You Make Loving Fun by Fleetwood Mac and I incorporated some of the song lyrics as well.  It's such a classic!!

I love all genres of music and it's a big part of my life actually.  I'm consistently listening to music is some shape, way or form.  So I loved this challenge!  Choosing a song was tough for me since I have so many favorites but this one was the perfect choice for my layout of my newly engaged son and his beautiful wife to be.

For this layout everything used is from my stash and it's just a mixture of product made into a layout.  I love the background paper by My Mind's Eye.  The stripes really set it off and the color is perfect!  Some other fun touches are the frames by Crate Paper, some puffy stickers by Evalicious, flair, enamel hearts by Heidi Grace and a mixture of letters for the title.  Topped off with splatters and some journaling.  In my journaling is how I incorporated some song lyrics, along with word stickers.

Now it's your turn!  We all have a favorite song and this is your chance to scrap it!  I'm excited to see what you come up with.  Be sure to share with us at The Studio Challenges for a chance to guest design for us!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I enjoy the audience.  Happy scrapping to you!

The Little Moments Well Spent

Happy New Year once again scrappy friends!  Two weeks into 2017 already.  How is it treating you so far?

We've got another new challenge waiting for you at The Studio Challenges.  Please join us.  It's a challenging mood board this time.  It was for me anyway.  Here is my layout to share.

and here is the mood board to follow...

I always seem to struggle when it comes to a colored mood board. I think the reason being is because of a trapped feeling, not being able to choose whatever you'd like.  So this type of challenge is good for me.  Thank goodness I came across this collection I had stashed away "For The Record 2" by Echo Park.  The colors are perfect!

Saved by Echo Park!  Since this collection was of perfect color I was able to create it pretty quickly.  I also added some misc goodies from my stash that coordinated as well.  And just look at Grammie's little guy.  I just can't get enough of his handsome face!

Okay, now it's your turn.  Get digging through your papers and your stash for the perfect combo to create your layout and be sure to share with us at The Studio Challenges.  I'm really excited to see what you come up with.

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy scrapping to you!

2016 Family Highlights

Happy New Year my blogger friends!!
We've got a new challenge for the new year up at The Studio Challenges.  We'd like a "review of the year" layout from you.  Instead of looking forward to the new year, we want you to look back at the year you just had! It could be a review of the whole year, something special that happened, your favorite thing about the year, or maybe it's one you'd rather forget! We'll leave it up to decide.

As for me, 2016 was a good year for us! For my "Review of the Year" layout I wanted to show off my children and document an important highlight in each of their lives. I am truly blessed with a loving and ever growing family.  Here is my take.

As I said before, 2016 was such a good year for us with lots of good happenings and I'm hoping for the same in 2017.  

This layout came together fairly quickly for me all because of the embellished background paper by Simple Stories.  I just added some homemade tags, a title and a few matching embellishments of my own and BOOM!  I love how it turned out!  The wood grain really topped it off.  Just a couple of closeups for more detail...

Now it's your turn.  Go have some fun as you create your "review of the year" layout.  I cant wait to see them, so be sure to share with us at The Studio Challenges.

Thanks so much for stopping by and again, Happy New Year!
