Busy, Busy, Busy!

This past week I've done some scrapping! Really liking all the challenges that different blogs/forums put out there. Scraptastic Club has a different one every week, Cookin' Up Creations has a different every day except for Monday which can be used as a catch up day. Inspired To Scrap has six to chose from, do one or do them all. Sketch Inspiration has a new sketch up on Sundays. Which I incidentally won last week which give me a nice selection of chipboard!

I was pretty happy yesterday morning when BarbP pointed out to me that my "Dad" layout from last week was one chosen to be shown on Sketch Inspiration's blog. Made me smile.

This first layout I'll show you is of Angel on her 18th birthday. I used papers and embellies from Scapbook Sussies that I ordered last summer. Angel is scratching off 18 lottery tickets. Kinda' of a tradition here to show the kids, just cause they are old enough to buy the lottery tickets, don't plan on getting rich off from them.

Rick graduated from Alpena Community College in May and we were so proud to attend the honor's breakfast. The products in the WIP kit seemed perfect for what I had in mind. For the Record he did a great job!

Who doesn't love a mother daughter picture? When I first laid eyes on this one, I thought it was the sweetest picture. Renee and Sophie right after Renee's wedding. I love this picture of the two of them! I dove into my stash to come up with some "wedding" type of papers.

The last one I want to share with you (for right now! LOL!) is of Brandon and his fantastic trip to Nashville last year with his fellow youth from Manton United Methodist Church. I grabbed the June Scraptastic kit (Surf's Up) to scrap these wonderful pictures taken by Jessica L.


  1. I like the colors in the first one of Angel. Adding the dollar signs was a great touch. lol

    I like how you add your own handwriting to so many of your pages. It adds an even more personal touch to them, especially when your journaling is a note to Rick and you sign it by hand. I'll have to do that too.

    I love the wedding page! Not only is the photo just priceless, but I really like the colors you went with too.

    Thank you for the inspiration!

  2. You have been busy this week! I love the variety of colors, patterns and designs that you have going on here. Great layouts, all of them :)
