Super Dad

The June 22nd challenge at Lasting Memories is "Bannerific" - to use a banner.  I'm very proud of all my son has accomplished this year and what a great role model he is to his sons and nephews.

The June 8th challenge at Lasting Memories is "Wishing You Blue Skies" - to use blue and white. Fortunately the challenge doesn't end until July 4th because while I made the layout for father's day I forgot to do my blog post and enter until today. Oh how I wish there were as many pictures from then as we can take today. But I did find this photo of my dad and I taken while on vacation.

One Smart Kid

Time for another challenge at Sketches in Thyme. For challenge #127 I turned the sketch sideways to match the pictures I had. My grandson received an award for having a 3.5 or above average. Love how little brother photo bombed the picture.

Our sponsor is Scrappiness Designs. The prize is a $7.00 coupon to the store.

You have until 7/14 to enter. Hope to see you there.

Sweet Baby

The latest challenge at Scrapping 4 Fun is black and white. My daughter posted some older pictures on facebook the other day in honor of her son's 10th birthday so I printed this picture and made a baby layout. (Better late than never right?) I love adding lace and flowers and butterflies but can't usually on a boy layout.

I am also entering this at Scrap It Girl (Things with Wings) and at Pinque Peacock (Anything Goes).

She Did It

Followed the sketch at Stuck On U Sketches for this layout of my daughter (finally) receiving her certification. She had to take multiple classes across the country, but all that travel has paid off. I'm so proud of her. My pictures are too large to fit the 5 in the sketch so I modified a little and made it my own. The background is made with a stencil. Used liquid pearls and water instead of paint. The cardstock is a muted red, not the rose it appears in the photo. Too much light and the colors don't look right, too little light and the photos don't show right. Maybe someday I'll get a perfect picture.

Project Life - Remember

The challenge at Stuck On U Sketches is to use yellow on a project life page. I usually have a hard time with titles but with a 20th birthday, Memorial Day, a trip to the cemetery and a trip to the Museum is was a week full of remembering times past.
