I Love Sketches

I was lucky enough to have some time this Good Friday to scrapbook with a good friend.  I used some sketches to help get my creativity flowing...

For this one I used the March Sketch from Practical Scrapper.  I was even able to use up some of my old stash.

The next page I made was using sketch #105 from Sketches in Thyme.  It was nice to dig into my bright paper Amy Tan paper that I had been hoarding.

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapping the Now

I took part in Studio Calico's Weekly Challenge, which was to scrap a "now" picture.  I have such a hard time not scrapbooking chronologically, hence why there are only two newborn pages in Miss E's baby book. This was a great challenge for me to break out of my rut.

I choose to use a couple pictures from last weekend.  We were spending the last few minutes playing before bedtime and I looked over and saw my two favourite people playing together and thought these are the moments that life is all about.

I am really loving getting back in the creative groove!

What a Difference a Year Makes...

This time last year the hubby and I were just telling the world our big news.  Now we are proud parents to a 7 month old baby girl.  Now that the nights are a little less sleepless and the naps a bit more structured, I am finally finding time to scrapbook again.

Here is the title page to Miss Elise's baby book.

I really need to work on taking better pictures of my pages, but you get the idea.

Hopefully there will be more pages to share soon!

Nothing like a Challenge...

There is nothing like a good challenge to get the creative juices flowing.  After a complete re-vamp of my craft room it was nice to sit down and actually create!

I saw a challenge on the Scrapbook Paradise blog and decided to give it a try.  I don’t usually make tags, but it was nice to try something different. 

With all of the big changes coming in my life I hope that I can continue to squeeze in some creative time!!

World Card Making Day

Studio Calico hosted some challenges for World Card Making Day this weekend and I was able to play along.  Here are the three cards that I made based on their challenges.

4 Years Ago Today…

In front of our family and friends the Hot Hubby and said I Do!  I can't believe it has been 4 years already.  It seems just like yesterday I was looking down the aisle at my husband to be.

I haven't started our wedding album yet.  The whole idea scares me ;)   I have done a couple of pages with our wedding pictures including the layout below which I put in our 2006 album.

I *heart* Studio Calico

After drooling over the kits forever, I finally broke down and ordered their kits.  When the I received the box on my door step I was so excited.  I haven’t had that much time to play with it yet, but here are the first two pages that I made using some of the Back 40 Kit.  I can’t wait for the next box to show up on my door step!

The first page shows the pictures that the hot hubby and I had taken to celebrate our 1st anniversary (our 4th anniversary is tomorrow!).

This page shows the “adventure” I had babysitting my nephew.  After reading Wacky Wednesday we both got a little wacky ;)
