My beautiful daughters

  Last week end both of my daughters went to Mommycon in Chicago. They traveled together and truly had a wonderful time. There are many pictures of them together and they just look so happy! It makes my heart so light to see them enjoy each other. It truly is a gift to me as their interests have always been very different. Motherhood has definitely brought them together!
  I used the March sketch at Stick It Down. I honestly did not think I would use this sketch when I first saw it but really enjoyed working with it once I got started.
 The sketch....
 My layout...

I used the Simple Stories Posh collection. The leaves were stenciled on using Heidi Swapp metallic texture paste in teal..... I love this stuff!!! It looks wonderful in person!
  Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my layout.
Have a wonderful day!

You got What for Christmas?

  The only big item on Skylers Christmas list was a chainsaw. So that is exactly what he got. Of course it does not get much use and this documents the first time he got to use it. We had the boys for the week end and  they brought it along to break it in. Jeff and I were a wreck but they all did great and truly listened to all the instructions,  with "Mr. Safety" as a Grandpa there were many!
  I used the March 1st sketch  at Let's Get Sketchy to document this most scary of days.
Here is the sketch
And here is my layout....
I used Simple Stories So Rad, my current go to for boys, for this layout.
 Thank you for stopping by I hope you are having a most amazing day!

  Well, I am still plugging along on moms book. This one really threw me. I absolutely loved the heart I created but when I got it on the paper I just could not embellish it. So in me fashion decided today was the last day to mess with it...just do it and be happy if for no other reason than it is no longer on my desk. I used sketch number 267 at Sketches in Thyme.

Here is the sketch...
And here is my layout....

I do still like the heart so I will eventually be okay with this one. I have pictures for one more for her book printed out and then I am going to take another break from it.
Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting my little spot in the world.

A new challenge blog for me.....

I was searching for  a sketch challenge with just one photo to do a layout of my oldest granddaughter when I ran across this sketch at My Creative Sketches. I have not had much time to explore the blog as the dead line for this sketch was looming. But I love the sketch and it is a great prize!  And no this is not my granddaughter, it always takes forever for me to do Olivia layouts so since the dead line was today I decided to do one of Zade instead.
 Here is the cute one picture sketch.
And here is my take...
I used Echo Park Bundle of Joy. the green stars and the wood hearts are from my stash. The cork pieces are from Fancy Pants.
  I am looking forward to seeing what the next sketch is like!!
    Thank you for the inspiration!

 Thank you so much for stopping by.
 I hope for you a blessed day!
