Busy as a Bee

Ahhhhhh, it was so wonderful to have a 3-day weekend due to the southern snow and ice!  I was able to get some cleaning done, weeded out a bunch of old scrapping supplies to give to my niece, watched my kids have fun sledding for the first time ever, and got some more scrapping done!

The first layout I did this weekend was of my sweet little Carter boo - when he was only 2 months old.  I did this layout for a challenge over at Sketchy Thursdays.  I am really having fun with their sketch challenges!  I was hesitant to splatter acrylic paint on my page and don't have any Glimmer Mist yet, so I used some CTMH acrylic stamps to achieve the look I was hoping for.  I am pleased with how it turned out.  Here's my take on this sketch:


Supplies used:
Cardstock - DCWV
Patterned Paper & "love" die cut - 3 Bugs in a Rug
Stamps, Ink & Glitter - CTMH
Journaling Stamp - Autumn Leaves
Flower - Cricut Lyrical Letters
ribbon, button, floss

I also did a 2-page layout based on the latest sketch over at Let's Scrap.  It was a great sketch for me to get some more pages done for our beach trip two summers ago!  I love how so many of Cheri's sketches have multiple photos - since I seem to take so many!  There's also a link where you can go see all of the previous sketches.  Check it out here!  

Supplies used:
Patterned Paper - K & Company's Wild Saffron
Chipboard - K & Company's Wild Saffron
Cricut Cartridges - Lyrical Letters for the title and Stretch Your Imagination for the embellies
Prima Flowers
CTMH brads

Here is a picture of my scrap buddies.  My sweet son (who will play on the computer while I scrap) and one of our pooches, Pepper (who is ALWAYS by my side or at my feet.)  As you can see, Pepper thinks she's a lap dog - even though she weighs over 100 lbs!  :)   

Happy Scrapping!  Off to make some Taco Soup (thank you Mom for the recipe!) and enjoy the rest of my weekend!  :)

Love how your LO turned out using the sketch. The stamping was a great idea instead of paint!
