1955


I was so excited to find this photo online - my father-in-law's uncle, niece and grandmother.  I used the sketch from Colorful Creations and the challenges from Connie Can Crop (pastels and polka dots - the pink paper), Red Carpet Studios (Easter or pastels) and Scrap Our Stash (spring colors). I'm happy to say that both the lace and flower ribbon have only tiny pieces left which I will use or toss this week. Feels good to finally use all of something.

Happy


The challenge at A Song In Your He{ART} is the song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. Since I'm still working on an album for my grandson, I scrapped this picture of him on vacation with his happy smile.  Used a pre-made banner and a piece of chevron paper. Punched the butterflies from the same patterned paper. The title is Thickers.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Beccy's Place, home to the most amazing digital designs.




Check out what my design team sisters have made and be sure to link your "Happy" project.  I've included the lyrics below.


"Happy"

It might seem crazy what I’m about to say
Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break
I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don’t care baby by the way

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

Here come bad news talking this and that, yeah,
Well, give me all you got, and don’t hold back, yeah,
Well, I should probably warn you I’ll be just fine, yeah,
No offense to you, don’t waste your time
Here’s why  
Hey, come on  
(happy) Bring me down
Can't nothing bring me down
My level's too high
Bring me down
Can't nothing bring me down
I said (let me tell you now)


Bring me down
Can't nothing bring me down
My level's too high
Bring me down
Can't nothing bring me down
I said



Hey, come on
(happy) Bring me down… can’t nothing…
Bring me down… my level's too high…
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
Bring me down, I said (let me tell you now)

Come on

You and I

It's time for another awesome sketch reveal at Sketches in Thyme. This was such a fun sketch to work with - perfect for the 12x12 die cut I've been hoarding. I used some of my favorite embellies - butterflies, flowers (two layers of paper flowers with a rose glues in the center) and the picture wheel die cut.





This challenged is sponsored by Scrappiness Designs and the prize will be a US$ 7 coupon for any purchase at the store.  Check out what my design team sisters have made. Hope to see your entry.

Logan






I used the sketch from Creative Scrappers for inspiration for this layout of my youngest niece going to her first dance.



I also used the photo inspiration from Pixels and Paper - the greens and blues and girls dressed up; and the challenge from Pinque Peacock - flowers.

Oh


My daughter attempted to take pictures of her two boys when they went out to eat earlier this month. I titled this layout Oh and the journaling says "you wanted serious pictures." I'm entering this at Scrap It Girl for the challenge use tags or bags (most of my layouts since I saw that challenge have included a tag) and at The Crafty Scrapper for the challenge to use black (base cardstock and mats).

Doing his part






I used the sketch from Colorful Creations for this layout of my son, keeping Portland weird.
