Here is another page that I did for the crop at Memorable Seasons. I had hoped to get more done that just the three, but time has gotten away from me! The challenge was to use 4 different embellishments 4 different times. I chose to use 4 golden bling, 4 mini brads, 4 buttons, and 4 ribbons- one along the side and I cut up a word ribbon and used it on three of the pictures. Thanks for looking!

I've been participating this past weekend in a "Leap Year" crop over at Memorable Seasons! I always enjoy the many challenges in a crop- it's been fun! We still have three more days to get layouts done so expect to see more from me!
The above layout was based on a challege to use kraft, twine, and a banner. A picture of me and my husband!

This layout was based on a Bingo Challenge! I chose the line that indicated I use all patterned paper, twine, a journal card(behind the flower) and 2 or more photos. These photos were taken on a very gloomy day at Mt. Soledad in La Jolla, CA. Thanks for looking!

Come fly away

This layout came together for me on Monday- with the help of a nice starting point again, from Valerie Salmon.
That's me under that big beautiful kite!
I used Echo Parks, Country drive for the patterned paper and threw in some twine and embellishments from several companies. Thanks for looking!

2 layout Sunday

Sunday's are usually productive for me to get some scrapping done- I tend to scrapbook in the afternoon while trying to catch up on all the DVR tv shows that I like to watch. Old Town, San Diego is another favorite stop! I completed this layout with the help of a sketch from Valerie Salmon here at I often find her sketches helpful for the linear look that I tend to go towards! Products used: Old Rhonna Farrar (yeah! for using my stash), some MME and of course AC for the title!

Here I started to use a sketch by Valerie- but took it my own way as I wanted to use the surfboard MME paper. I really like the photo I took and glad I was able to highlight it on a layout.

Here's a layout featuring one of our favorite places to eat in San Diego! It's a must visit everytime we get into CA!
The food is yummy and the Happy Hour prices let us fill our bellies full!
I used Bo Bunny paper and letters for this layout and finished it off with my embellisments from Making Memories and My Minds Eye! Thanks for looking!

Graduation lunch

I finished this layout yesterday about Abriana's 8th grade graduation(2009) lunch! I've had the photos developed and sitting around for a bit and was happy to find a sketch by that helped me work all these vertical photos. Pairing the sketch along with an older Scrapbook Circle kit made it all came together wonderfully~!

Let's get Sketchy!

I wanted to post my layout for a design team call at! I changed it up a bit, added my own spin, and I think it turned out great. The picture is of Abriana and Noah standing together on a bridge at Seaport Village. I enjoyed using these fun bright papers and enjoyed the challenge of the sketch!

12 of 12

I thought I would choose my most recent completed layout to start my blog! I decided to try 12 of 12 this year. It's something different for me as I don't normally like the idea of being forced in to taking pictures just to complete yet another project. I take so many already just of life and events that I didn't want to bog myself down with a task like Project Life but yet still wanted to try the concept out. So, 12 of 12, so far, is a happy middle for me! This layout is based on a sketch that was provided as part of my 12-of-12 group on facebook. Thanks for looking!
