Scraplift a Member and Lasting Memories

This month the challenge team had the opportunity to scrap lift any member in the Cookin' Up Creations gallery so I chose to scrap lift a layout by our very own CT Coordinator, Barb Prendergast.

Barb's layout.

I chose Barb's layout for several reasons.  One, being that her layout was very similar to my own style of scrapping.   She also used one photo on her layout.  Those of you that know me, know that I rarely add more than one photo to my own layouts.  And she also used a lot of layering which is something else I tend to use on mine. 

And here is my layout.

It rarely snows here in South Carolina so when it does I have to document it.  The papers I used for this layout are from Basic Grey's Fact collection.  The title was cut with my Silhouette and the snowflakes were made with a Martha Stewart punch.

I'm also linking up this layout over at Lasting Memories for their Clean and Simple Challenge.

Thanks for looking.

Friday Focus and Kraft It Up

It's Friday, March 15th and that means another Friday Focus challenge over at Cookin' Up Creations.  Our focus this Friday is all about negative spaces, so I chose to do another layout of  Mr. Cooper Pooper.  Here he is sitting on my side of the sofa.  I was trying to get him to move but he wouldn't hear of it, so I snapped a quick pic with my Iphone. lol.     

As you can see, I punched several circles out of a strip of pattern paper and used what would normally be tossed in the trash, on my layout.   Trust me, it's not my idea.  I may be that frugal but I'm certainly not that creative.

I also combined this challenge with the Kraft It Up challenge over at Scrap Our Stash blogspot.  The challenge is to use kraft and 3 types of metal embellishments.  I chose kraft cardstock for my base and the 3 metal embellishments are 2 dog related brads, 1 bone shaped clip and a dogs rule metal bone plaque that I used for my title. 

Thanks for looking!

Sketchbook 365 sketch and layout

I was browsing Pinterest the other morning, just like I do most mornings when I ran across this sketch

by Sketchbook 365.  I immediately fell in love with the sketch and as soon as some free time opened up, I was on it like Donkey Kong!  Luckily, I had just come back from JoAnn's with a bag full of Hey You and Hey Boy papers and embellishments.   And here's what I came up with.

The white paint was part of a challenge over at CUC.  Not my typical style but once it was on there, there was no turning back.  So for what it's worth, here it is.
