Life Paper Scrapbook

 I managed to get another sketch done. I saw this one and thought of how I wanted to use it, then could not for the life of me remember where I saw the sketch. But a friend in a yahoo group spotted it and I happily finished the layout. So here is the January sketch at Life Paper Scrapbook.I love this site and will definitely go back! And totally love this sketch!
And here is my take. We had a very" disjointed" Christmas this year so pictures are just not great. Having many small ones really helped me to scrap them with out showcasing them.

Here is my take.....

Thank you for spending your time with me.

Another challenge down....on a slow roll!

  I am slowly getting myself back onto the scrapbooking wagon. Geez, when I fall off I take all my mojo into the abyss with me. But this is the second layout this year so I am struggling to slowing pull myself out.
  This layout was inspired by this sketch at Stuck on U sketches.

And here is my layout,

Skyler is going through a stage where he puts on the most "pasted on" smile ever whenever the camera comes out. this year when they went to see Santa Neal has started to mimic it..... Adrienne said about this picture"This was as good as we were going to get." But aren't they totally adorable with their big fake smiles!
     I love this paper. It was in the haul that was recently gifted me. I was so hoping that the embossing would pop and I used Stampin Up pastels to do the trick.  I am sad because you can not see how wonderful the blue circles are. I embossed, then inked, then used dazzling diamonds glimmer mist...I promise you it looks like glistening snow... I am also adding this to the button challenge at Scappin n Chattin.
 Thanks for taking the time to visit me.
I hope somewhere you find some inspiration to scrap your memories today!

Coming february 3.... a new challenge blog!

  I love the idea of this new challenge blog. Craft Hoarders Anonymous. Gloria Stengel Designs encourages you to use your stash on the twice monthly challenges. You may submit multiple projects and it is a wide open project list...layout, card mixed media etc. I also love that the winners are chosen not random picked. then on the off chance that I am chosen I know it is for the quality of my work. I look forward to joining in next month.
  Head on over and check it it out. while you are there leave a comment for a prize giveaway!

Crushing scrappers block.

  I have had the toughest time breaking through my crafters block. I had a project with a deadline that was really kicking my mojo. Finally got that done with minutes to spare,now it is time to attack some layouts. I have begun several but just couldn't get anything glued down. So with a little determination and a lot of encouragement. Here it is.
Yes, Neal is a character. The boy's went with Ben on his parents annual Christmas tree hunt. And then they got to help decorate the tree. Neal apparently did not understand the icicles.
This is for the sketch challenge at.  Lets Capture Our Memories       
Here is the sketch.
 And here is my take.....

Thank you for your time. Hopefully the encouragement will keep my mojo flowing.
Have a blessed day.
