As promised here are some more layouts from LOAD. Sorry the pictures of them are crooked. I really need to work on taking a nice straight picture.

This first one we were to use items that we have had for a while. This was paper from a kit that I purchased months ago at my LSS. I loved this photo of my daughter blowing out the candles on her cake. The flowers were cut out from one of the patterned papers.

This next one we were to scrap a moment or event that we have been meaning to for a while. These photos were taken last October at my son's first dental appointment. I used a line called Elementary by Simple Stories. I just love doing grid layouts. They come together so easily!

Lastly this one we were to use something on our layout that we love to use. I love using my border punches. I love what they add to the layout. I especially love the Martha Stewart Punch around the page punches. Slowly but surely I am adding to my collection.

I am sure I will have more layouts to share soon. Until next time...happy scrapping!

Layout a day

I love participating in LOAD (layout a day). APOS! has a couple of them per year. Sometimes they are month long ones and other times it is a 2 week LOAD. This time it is a 2 week load. I get so much inspiration from them. At the end of it I will have 14 layouts done. It can't get any better than that!

For this layout we were given a sketch for inspiration. I used the Apple Cider line by Imaginsce.
This next one we were supposed to scrap our favourite person, place or thing. I of course picked my kids. I also scraplifted this layout from Lori. When I first saw her layout I loved it!

I can't wait to show you some of the other layouts I have done. We are almost done week 1. Until next time happy scrapping!

Splashing good fun!

Over at APOS! for the month of September we are having colour challenges. I knew as soon as we found out we were doing colour challenges I wanted to do a summer layout with some beach photos we took this year. I was inspired by a layout that Lori (a local scrapbooker) did. I fell in love with it. I also absolutely love this Bo bunny fun and summery!

I challenged the ladies to do a layout using yellow, blue and white. I just love the die cut paper!

Be sure to check back later on this weekend. I am doing a mini LOAD (layout a day) at APOS! and I have a few layouts to share with everyone. Until then happy scrapping!

Just a quickie

Thought I would do a quick post to let everyone know about the online crop this weekend over at A PILE OF SCRAP. This month Kelsey is hosting. I hope to get in a few layouts in between our busy weekend that we have planned.

Stay tuned for another post this week for the colour challenge I am doing over at APOS. I am working on it today and hope to have it posted on my blog by tomorrow night.

Until then....happy scrapping!

I love working with sketches

I always find lots of inspiration from sketches and I was super excited when Vicki from A Pile of Sketches asked if I could work with one of the sketches. I had so much fun with this one. I used some glimmermist, crackle paint and a bit of stitching. I used the Elementary collection by Simple Stories. I thought it was a perfect time to do a layout about school when we are about to send the kids back for another year. Head on over to the sketch blog to check out some of the other sketches. You won't be disappointed.
