Cropping Escape and a Secret

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I went to an all day crop Saturday and it was awesome. It has been sooo long since I have taken time for myself. In fact the hostess' business name is Escape Scrapbooking, how appropriate right! There was good food (I have a Greek Pasta salad recipe that I must try now) and lots of prizes and great deals. While there I got the chance to work on a layout for the Paper Secrets July 15th Sketch Challenge with Twist! The challenge was to use a sketch and a Project Life card. While I am not a Project Lifer I did enjoy working the Echo Park Photo Freedom Volume 1 collection from my ScrapRoom kit.
The pics are of my girls right before going out to dinner together in happier times. Right now they are not speaking to each other so I am getting phone calls at work all day telling on each other, lol.  I try to remain neutral but honestly they just make me laugh. this will last for a day or two at the most, then back to all smiles!

Sketch~n~Scrap Reveal day!

Summer is in full swing and today is reveal day over at Sketch~n~Scrap and what a great reveal it is!  Even though I have stacks on stacks of older photos to scrap, I just had to scrap these recent photos on my oldest daughter. The sketch came together so easily, I just love the placement of the stars and wanted to duplicate that somewhat. I used my Lifestlye crafts nested stars and the star stickers that came with the collection. The Simple Stories 24/7 collection worked so well for me and wow! the colors are just fantastic! Be sure to jump in with us this month at Sketch~n~Scrap for a chance to win an awesome prize from Paper Secrets.

Word Art Find!

Every year my family and I attend the breast cancer walk and we talk about customizing shirts but then we wait until the last minute and run out of time to get a project done. So being proactive I created this image for my family using this program http://www.imagechef.com/ic/poem/. (I hope you can tell that it is in the shape of a sneaker), it is made up of all of our names. It is fitting because we call ourselves "Marie's Legacies". I am going to print it on some heat transfer paper this weekend to start my prototype for family approval. I am going to have to wait a few months for the final version because we have a new family member on his way but at least I have started the ball rolling.

More layouts

Over the weekend I decided to dip into my "To-be"  pile and finish up a couple of layouts. This first one is of my youngest daughter who is my favorite person to hangout with. When we go out to eat no matter how strange something is, she will always at least try it, the stranger the better, lol. I thought it would be fun to use actually chopsticks as an embellishment with Studio Calico papers.

This next one is of my three nieces. For the most part they are like little sisters instead of nieces and I am soo proud of the women they have become. This has been sitting because I really want to journal it but I just don't know what I want to say so for now I am going to call it complete and hope to come back to it later. I used my Cricut graphically speaking cartridge for the die cuts, that is still one of all time favorite cartridges.

Four days later..........

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July holiday. It was pretty low key for me but I managed to get a little scrapping done. I have more layouts to share but I didn't want to send anyone into shock, lol.

Echo Park Brother's collection - I actually did this layout for a challenge a couple months ago but I ummm (clearing my throat) missed the deadline. I love these guys and I think that I have scrapped this photo more than once, lol.  Oh well it is a favorite.

This is my favorite layout of the weekend. Simple Stories is quickly climbing the charts as on e of  my top five manufacturers. This Vintage Bliss collection has such fun and easy to use colors and this layout is even more gorgeous in person. How can I be so confident? It has my daughter's seal of approval, lol!

SNS Sketch #36 Reveal Day! - D.C. Go-Go

This heat has really slowed me down among other things so I have made a pledge to try to do better in the month of July. Did I just say July? Omgoodness it is almost time to start thinking about Christmas gifts! Good Grief!
So without further ado I would like to share my July 1st layout for Sketch-n-Scrap. My husband and I spent a long weekend in DC in April just to change things up. We went to the aquarium, some historical spots, some great places for dinner and to the Zoo. Unfortunately there weren't a lot of animals out and we were kind of disappointed but we made the best of it and enjoyed our weekend anyway. Make sure you stop by the blog HERE and check out what the rest of our fantastic design team did with the sketch. Also make sure your upload your take on the sketch for your chance to win an awesome prize from Paper Secrets!
