Jasmine Grace

Good morning all. No time long see, huh? I’ve just been so busy, hardly have time to sit down and scrap. But I did get to do one page done (took me almost a week to complete it). And of course, its about my li’l girl Jasmine!

Jasmine Grace

This was the second day after we adopted the girls. Just look at that cute little face! I can’t believe they are 7 months old now!

I used KaiserCraft “Pawfect” collection, with alphas by My Little Shoebox. I used the fabulous sketch #136 from Sketch N Scrap

Sketch #136

I stayed true to the sketch and used the hexagon/circle die cuts for my banner

DSCN7305

I did this for both the Sept Manufacturer Challenge at ACOT (use a manufacturer that has the letter “t” in their name) and the Sept Rewind Challenge. I went back and did August Manufacturer Challenge (manufacturer must start with K or O).

For Generations To Come

Hello everyone! I have a new sketch to share with you from the very talented Bev Code, for Sketches in Thyme:

As I was going thru a few of my folders of pictures, I discovered 3 that I thought worked VERY WELL with the sketch. My mother in law gave me tons of photos of HER grandmother and mother, some even dating back to the 1890s. I LOVE old photos. Those are the ones that have a story behind them.

Using Bo Bunny “Etc.” and “Timepiece”, along with bling by Zva Creative, this is what I came up with:

I pretty much stayed true to the sketch, adding bling where the floral piece is and only using 2 journal strips instead of 3.

Head over to Sketches in Thyme blog where you can view daily the DT’s take on this sketch and other sketches we have this month. Hope you can play along!

Playtime!

Good morning everyone! Today I have the newest sketch from Sketches in Thyme to share with you, designed by Brenshevia.

How fun is this sketch? So many possibilities!

And here is my take on it:

Pics are of Penny and Jackson playing together back in October.

My products are:
background paper, banner die cut: Doodlebug
phrases, blue pattern paper, green pattern paper: PhotoPlay
enamel dots: Freckled Fawn, Doodlebug
washi tape: Queen & Co
“beware” sticker, “play” sticker: 7 Paper
veneer paw prints: KaiserCraft
gelatos: Faber-Castell
alphas: Remarks
die cut collar: Bo Bunny

I chose this color scheme to go with ACOT’s Graphic Design Challenge. Barb gave us a list of logos to choose from, to be inspired by and I chose the SPRITE logo (blue, green, yellow, grey/silver and white).

Check out the Sketches in Thyme’s blog and hope you can play along with us!

It was meant to be

Good morning everyone! I’m up on the Sketches in Thyme blog today, sharing with you Sketch #284, designed by the very talented Shawn Lahr:

Check out all those fun circles! And here is my take on it:

When I first saw this sketch, I knew EXACTLY which photo I was going to use. This is the first photo I took of sweet Jasmine and Shelby when we were “getting to know them” at the shelter. I just love how little Jasmine is looking at the camera, while little Shelby is chewing on her leash.

So I used my circle cutter to cut the photo into a circle and from there, I was torn by which products. However, once I chose doilies to use as my photo mat (red is Doodlebug; white is Bo Bunny), I went straight for the Doodlebug “Puppy Love”.

I chose the title because at first, both of these little girls had pending adoptions. So while we waited to see if we were going to adopt these two cutie pies, we were already falling in love. Luckily, they both fell thru and they were OURS! ❀ ❀ It was MEANT to be! ❀ ❀

I chose to write my journaling on the 2 doily halves on opposite sides of my layout. The little sprinkles are a mix of enamel dots/shapes, paw print/dog bone stickers – all from Doodlebug.

Make sure you head over to Sketches in Thyme’s blog and check out this awesome sketch. Hope you can play along this month!

Hello Friend

Good morning and hello friends! Today is a bittersweet as I’m sharing with you my last DT assignment for Sketch N Scrap. I’ve really enjoyed being part of an amazing team for the past two years and will miss everyone. I have decided to step down as life has just gotten in the way. Two new puppies, work, and everything in between. But don’t you worry, I can continue to play along with Sketch N Scrap and you’ll get to see my creations when I can post!

So without further ado, here is card sketch #100, designed by the very talented Lisa Hidy:

And here is my take on it:

The washi tapes are from Hobby Lobby (The Paper Studio brand) and the papers/stickers are MME.

Make sure you stop by Sketch N Scrap blog and hope you can play along!

Mirror Images

Good morning everyone! Today I have Layout Sketch #131 designed by Heather Hall for Sketch N Scrap:

I used one photo instead of two and added a few more embellies (which I fussy cut from paper). I used some really old DCWV pattern papers:

My sweet Bear with Penny Lane. They were sleeping the EXACTLY the same way. Thought it was super cute!!

Hop on over to the Sketch N Scrap blog and check out the rest of the DT’s work. Hope you can play along with us this month.

Summertime

Good morning everyone! Today I’m up on the Sketches in Thyme blog today. The sketch this week is designed by Sara M.

And this is my take on it:

Really doesn’t look like the sketch at all, but loved the 2 photos at the bottom left and instead of bling/flowers, I fussy cut a bunch of stuff out and used enamel dots. Simple StoriesΒ  “Summer Vibes” papers and enamel dots; washi tape by “Recollections”.

Hop on over to the Sketches in Thyme blog to check out the DT’s work this month. Hope you can play along.
