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.

 Hello Friends and happy belated July!
Yep, I'm a bit late but still wanted to share.

For this layout I used my Hip Kit scrapbook kit.  The colors, prints and accents were a perfect fit.

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,

Living The Sweet Life

 Hello friends and hello to the new month of  May!

Today I am sharing my take on our new challenge just released at Challenge YOUrself.  This month we'd like you to create a layout about something you love.  Examples being... family, pets, job, hobby, a favorite food or even a pair of shoes.  The possibilities are endless!

I've got many loves. Ha! However, frozen yogurt is pretty high up there.


To me froyo is life!  I'm eating it every chance I get.  Topped off with friends and laughter.  I'd say that's the perfect combination!

For this layout I used one of my older monthly kits from Hip Kit Club.  Not very often do I use blue as my primary focus but this combo was perfect!  My pics really pop and it blends so well together.



Now it's your turn!  We all have many loves, now let's turn one of those into a layout.  Remember to include you in a photo and be sure to share with us at Challenge YOUrself for a chance to win some fun goodies!


Thank you so much for stopping by!

My Always

 Hello friends and happy April!

With a new month upon us it's time to share our latest challenge at Challenge YOUrself.  This month marks our 100th challenge!  How cool is that?  So we're celebrating with stars!  Show us all the stars.  Go dig out all that you have and start creating.  Here is mine for inspiration...

Aww, I love this picture of my husband and I.  He is an amazing man and he truly is my always <3

This layout was created with all scraps and stash.  It's pretty clean and simple but I love how it turned out!  The picture is my focal point and it just pops off the page.  The little touches of the doodling around the edges and some of the stars gives it life and then the journeling, that's always important to fit in.




Now it's your turn!  The possibilities are endless and who doesn't have a variety of stars in their stash?  Don't forget to include YOU in a photo and be sure to share with us at Challenge YOUrself for a chance to win some fun goodies.  Check us out and see tons of inspiration too.


Thank you for stopping by!

Rex & Pearl

Hello and Happy March!

I just love that it's March.  I know it's still cold and snowy but just knowing spring is right around the corner makes me so happy. I'm not a winter girl.

Now let's get to the new challenge of the month over at Challenge YOUrself.  We've got a pet theme this time.  We want you to create a layout about a pet or animal.

Here is my inspiration...


Yes, I'm that crazy catlady!  I just think cats are the cutest animals on this planet.  Here I am showing off my two beauties.  Rex is the old man, he is 16 years and is my snuggler.  Pearl is the little princess, she is 6 years and is my shadow.  They are both very spoiled and I wouldn't have it any other way!

For this layout I used the Whiskers collection by PhotoPlay and I added misc washy tape and alphas to make it all come together.  I'm happy with the turnout.




Now it's your turn!  Show us your pets and tell us why you love them so much.  Be sure to share with us at Challenge YOUrself for your chance to win a prize and to see more inspiration.  Remember to include YOU in a photo!


Thank you so much for stopping by!
Happy Scrapping.
