Frosted Designs Sketch #18

My youngest sister-in-law as a toddler is again the subject of my layout, this time following sketch #18 at Frosted Designs.

Papercraft Star Challenge #51


The challenge this week at Papercraft Star is to use the above photo at inspiration. I used the colors of the photo (pink, gray/silver, white) to make the layout below of my youngest sister-in-law when she was a toddler.

To Wish

This layout of Charlie's 13th birthday is based on the sketch at Sketchy Thursdays. Since we couldn't decided whether to get a chocolate cake or a yellow cake, we got him one of each.

Spring 1950

The Fabulous Friday challenge at Frosted Designs is to use black, white and one color. I picked blue as my color and made a layout of my mother-in-law, her sister, their mother and mother's boyfriend. Since the little ones are with my mother-in-law, I am basing the date on the infant's age.

This layout is for the 6/14 sketch challenge at Frosted Designs. Photos are of my grandson at his band concert in May 2011.

When Dad was Young

The challenge at Lasting Memories this week is to use the above photo as inspiration. I chose to make a layout about my father. He is about 4 or 5 in the photo which is only a photocopy - sure wish I had the original.

In the Middle

Based on the sketch at Scrappin-n-chattin this layout is for the challenge at The Paper Variety to make a summer themed project. I used Artful Delight's June kit. Love the sewing pattern paper flower. The photos were taken at the 45th parallel, half way between the North Pole and the Equator, in 1982.

Great Aunt Marie

This layout is based on the sketch at Papercraft Star. Okay, so it's a card sketch, but the rules didn't say it had to be a card, just a project and since I'm not that great at cards, this is what I made. Great-aunt Marie never married, so she won't have a wedding page in the family heritage album, therefore this is her page. There is no date or place given, but I'm guessing 1940s Milwaukee. She was born in 1909. Paper and letters from the Artful Delight June kit.

Based on this week's sketch at Sketchy Thursdays this layout is of my niece who was in a coma and not expected to wake. On the day of a cousin's funeral my niece woke and asked what happened. She has since been released from the hospital, fully recovered. (Made with the June kit from Artful Delight and prima flowers.)


This layout of my girls when they were little is for the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday challenge theme of friends and follows the sketch from Artful Delight  for June. I used the Artful Delight June kit (except for the quote which I printed). Whenever the girls would fight when they were young I would remind them that friends might come and go, but your sister is always your sister.                                                                                          


The challenge this week at Lasting Memories is to use the above sketch and lots of bling. I made a layout of my youngest niece, Logan.

The challenge at Papercraft Star was theme (wedding or anniversary) and photo inspiration.

The layout is my great-uncle's wedding in 1928, attendants are his brother and sister. Sketch is from Michigan Scrapbooker Magazine.

Another "last minute" entry. This layout is based on the sketch at Sketchy Thursdays - need to link by 10 p.m. tonight. My son played basketball with his nephews on Mother's Day. The oldest boy told the others, "Don't worry. Uncle Mark will play for 10 minutes and need a nap."
