Creative Scrappers

This is a layout I did for the latest sketch over at Creative Scrappers sketch 96.

I used a larger doily as a mask and misted I also used 2 smaller ones which I misted as well to give them some sparkle. Then instead of circles I used flowers. I like the simplicity of this layout.

Some layouts to share

I'm on a role today doing 2 posts in a row. Did I mention I get so much more done when kids nap?
Anyways, I'm still doing the 60 page club at my LSS and I think I am up to 36 layouts for the month??? I have to double check. Anyways, here are a few layouts I did recently. Some are great others not so much. I'm really trying to step outside the box and get more artsy. The one layout I did was kind of a inky painty mish mash that turned out better than I thought. It's a good thing I signed up for Dina Wakely's Art Journaling 101. I think I need a little more guidance ; )

What do you think?

So I was thinking that it is time to try and get some more followers. I know I'm no Elizabeth Kartchner nor am I Celine Navarro or any other fabulous scrapbook artist. However I love getting feedback even if some of my stuff if Ugly (see previous post).
So If I get 20 followers by April 15 I am going to have a little giveaway. Now it won't be a Cricut, or a years subscription to an awesome kit club but it will be something nice. So what do you think? Can we make it to 20 followers by April 20th?
Also, please leave me a comment to say hi!

Project 12 February

So here is my layout for Project 12- February. I have to say I hate it. I think it is one of my worst layouts I have done. It is blah. So please feel free to hate it as much as I do. The only good thing is that I know it totally sucks and I will do much better for next month.

I'm back!!!

So my company is gone and I am slowly getting back on track. It was nice to have my parents here. They love watching the kids so that means I got a little scrapbooking in. I even went to a friends house to scrap (Thank you N). So here are a few layouts I did. Pretty simple nothing too complicated.

So how is everyone doing these days? Can you believe Spring is on the way? It's going to be summer before we know it yahoo!

Taking A Break

Hey everyone, I have been a bad blogger but I have a great excuse. Tons of visitors! My parents are here for a few weeks and our Australian is also here. So you can imagine how busy I am. In the mean time you can enjoy my little cutie!

I love Hambly

So I got a wonderful surprise in the mail this week, Hably goodies!

I have to admit it's a bit intimidating using their products. I find the papers so absolutely gorgeous I'm scared stiff to screw up my project. Anyways, here's a layout I did for a doily challenge over at Moxie Fab World

So I have a question... Has anyone had a layout scraplifted without being credited? I saw a layout on 2 Peas today that looked very similar to one I posted a few weeks ago. Now I took it from a Studio Calico challenge but I DID give credit and I made it my own. This person also mentioned SC but it was almost identical to mine and even had hearts and misting. Should I be flattered or annoyed? I always try to give credit when I scraplift. There is so much inspiration out there and it is getting harder to be original but there is still lots of ways to make it your own. Worst part... she had more views and bookmarks than mine : (

Sketchy Thursday Challenge

So my parents are here visiting and that means more time for me to SCRAPBOOK! I saw the new sketch on sketchy Thursday and got right to work. Here's what I came up with from the sketch:

I love Studio Calico

I received my Studio Calico kit last week and love it! This is my first kit subscription and I couldn't be happier. This week on their blog the contest is to scraplift a layout from their gallery:
The first layout is the one I chose to scraplift and the second one is my take.
