Let's Capture Our Memories Sketch 31

Today I complete Let's Capture Our Memories Sketch 31 challenge.  As soon as I seen this sketch, I wanted to use a Huey's Mask called Bubble and Dylusions ink by Rangers. I love the way my mask turned out on the side of the page, so I made to do it with my title. If you have never tried Dylusion inks by Ranger  I would strong recommend that you try them. I love playing with them.  So here is my page

And  here is the sketch that inspired my layout

Let's Get Sketchy Week One!! Popsicle Nut!!!

Hope everyone had a great day on this beautiful fourth of July. I know I did, because I got to scrapbook today, spent time with the family and eat lots of good food.

This Layout  is inspired by Let's Get Sketchy Week one

I had a lot of fun making this page. I looked everywhere and could not find a blue to match his popsicle, so I made my own.  I started with a piece of white mulberry paper.
( because I want some extra texture) I used two different stamp pads to get the color of blue I wanted. Next, I used an old tube of glitter glue (that the glitter was colored light blue) and I rubbed it all over the page. I am really excited about how well it matches the different textures in his popsicle.

My son is a complete popsicle nut! He eats about four a day even when there is snow on the ground.

Happy fourth of July!!

Let's Get Sketchy Week Two

 With all the cold weather, I was drawn to create a fall layout again. I used  Let's Get Sketchy week two sketch, to complete this layout of my father and my son trick or treating last fall.

Week two

Here is my take on this lovely sketch......

The doily I used was made my late grandma. I used my Ranger Inks to dye it orange to match the paper.

Week four at Let's Get Sketchy

Happy Memorial Day ! It was a lovely rainy day here.  So, I had the morning to rearrange the scrap booking supplies and make scrapbook a page. I am trying to complete every week at  Let's Get Sketchy. I skipped around on the weeks, so this post is for week four.

Week Four

 My take on the sketch.....

I think I am in the fall mood with all this cold weather around here in Ohio. This is me and my son Trace at the pumpkin patch last fall. I can't believe how much he has grown in such a short amount of time.

Let's Get Sketchy Week One

 I have been busy planting my flowers and garden, which has left little time to scrapbook lately.  I have spend all that time getting my flowers and garden ready and guess what? It is going to freeze tonight. May 25th and is it going to freeze! Ohio weather is just crazy! Last year at this time we were sweating with big beautiful garden that had been in for awhile. So with all the plants covered for the night I needed to be creative. This is my first  Let's  get Sketchy Sketch that I have completed in time to post to there blog.

Week one

Here is my take on the sketch. I couldn't find the right colors I wanted in my stash to make the sunburst. So, I used my ink pads and masking tape to create the  sunburst that I wanted. Hope you all like it.

 I also inked all the letter to match the sunburst.

Delightful Inspiration Sketch # 15

With the weather breaking a little here in ohio, I seem to making a lot of cards. That's probably because every free hour of daylight light I have has been spend playing in the dirt and mulching.

    At Delightful Inspiration they have a new weekly sketch challenge. I saw this sketch and thought Halloween for some reason, not sure why. Halloween is my favorite holiday by far.


I really like how this card turned out. I can't wait to send it to the family in FL, with  pictures of Trace's halloween costume and  him trick or treating.

Just a side note
Scrap a la Jen is having a blog candy contest or celebration for her 150 post. So please stop over and show her some love and a chance to win her blog candy .

Paper Secrets march 15th challenges

For the last few months I have followed and completed several challenges, but I have not turned or linked any of them.  So here is my first try at linking a challenge from Paper Secrets. It is their March 15th sketch with a twist.

Sketch by Liz Chidester

There is my take on the sketch….

This is a pair of earring and a pin that I purchased at garage sale. I love using non scrapbooking items in my layouts.

Now all I have to do is figure out how to link to Paper Secrets. How I can do it.
