We R Booth Projects

Hi all! Happy Thursday!! So excited that the weekend is almost here. This Saturday, I am going to be doing the Dirty Girl Mud run, its a 5k obstacle course, and the partner with the charity Bright Pink. I am super excited....though also a little worried I may be biting off more than I can chew! lol. Guess we'll see! :)

I thought I'd hop on and share a couple of photos of my projects in the We R booth at CHA. I know I have already shared most of the projects, but the ladies in at my LSS were awesome enough to get some fab photos for me so I thought I'd share those! :)

All of these projects were made by me, except that cute little "I love you" card. I also have one other layout that isn't displayed here, but thought I'd share!
This collection is beyond gorgeous, and I know its starting to become available...already all in stock at my LSS! Make sure you grab some of it up! :)
Have a great day, and take time to create something you love!

Paper Bakery Sketch

Hi all!! I have a fun layout to share with you today! I used this layout for another one of the Noel Mignon facebook challenges, Swimming by the Lake, which was to used any type of water photo.
I also used this fun sketch from The Paper Bakery.

Super cute, right?? I flipped it, and layered up the banners a little more for my layout, but you can definitely see the sketch in my layout.
I thought this paper was perfect for this photo, since my journaling is all about how baby boy was not liking bath time, and was extremely fussy. In walk his sisters to help, and he immediately gets happy and bath time was a breeze...which was delightful, awesome, amazing, super, and extraordinary for this mama! lol,
Make sure you check out this post, and see if you were the winner of  my Whimsical Twist blog hop giveaway!!
Have a great day, and take time to create something you love!

Summer Fun

Hi all!! Happy Saturday!! I am hopping on real quick to share another layout from the Summer Camp with Noel Mignon!

This one was the "Trail Mix" challenge, and it was basically a recipe challenge. We were given a list of items that we had to use on our layout.

Ever since I got this Elle's Studio paper, I had this idea in my mind. This challenge was just the push to finally get it to paper. Love the final product!! :)

Keeping it pretty short and sweet today, heading out for some adventures with the family! :)

Have a great weekend, and take time to create something you love!

Project 12: July Edition

Hi all!! Here today to share with you my monthly Project Life spread.

I had fun this month, using some of the challenges over at the Noel Mignon summer camp on these spreads.

This first layout, I used the "Basket Weaving" challenge. I have always liked the look of the paper weaving, but have never gave it a try myself, so this was a fun push to give it a try. Of course, right about now was when I ran out of adhesive, of course! So I used my tiny attatcher and decided to go for a more "messy" weave! I totally love how it turned out, the original plan was to use it as a mat for a photo, I ended up loving it so much, I just used it as a filler card.

On the second page, I decided to use the "Nature Hike" challenge, which was to use an element of nature on your layout. I had this awesome picture of the girls fishing that I was planning on putting on here. So, I decided I'd get a little twig from out in the yard, tie it up with some fishing line, and have a cute little fishing pole embellishment...of course I didn't take into consideration that fact that fishing line is clear. So, it basically looks like I just glued a random twig onto the page, lol, but live and learn right. Its still a cute idea, and you can tell in person, so its staying!

 I am still having so much fun playing along over there, we are out this weekend, but I'm hoping I can finish up and get the remaining challenges in by the deadline on Monday!

Hope you all have a great weekend, and take time to create something you love!!

Two for Thursday!

Hi all! I'm back today with two layouts to share! I am loving these challenges with Noel Mignon. They are super fun to play along with, and its helping me to get caught up on some of those photos piling up!

The first one I am going to share with you goes along with the Mess Hall challenge. Which was to use a photo with food in it. In my quest to scrap last years food photos, I came across this one of our middle girl. She was so excited last year that she finally got the "special back to school breakfast" Its a fun little tradition we have. I used my August SC kit on this layout...loving those new CHA goodies in there!!

Then my second layout for today, is for the Woodworking challenge. You were to use at least 5 types of wood products. I finally am getting those monthly photos done!

Gah! Look at how tiny he was! Time flies...he's almost 10 months old now!

Hoping to finish out the rest of these challenges soon, having soo much fun playing along!

Have a great day, and take time to create something you love!

Pre-K Graduation

***Whimsical Twist blog hop and giveaway still open. Go here to play along!***

Hi all!! Happy Wednesday! It has been a quiet day around here. Our oldest went back to school today, and me and the two little ones are missing her pretty bad. Tomorrow will be even harder...Miss K will have school in the afternoon.

With the new school year starting, I thought I probably better work on getting those school pictures from last year scrapped. I am still having tons of fun playing along with the Noel Mignon facebook challenges, and knew this layout was photo would be perfect for the "Star Gazing" challenge!

I am on a major layering kick, and I thought having this Pink Paislee die cut in the back of all the layers would be a fun look. Very happy with this one! :)

Hope you all have a great day, and take time to create something you love! :)

Hi all!! Happy Tuesday! Today is our last day of "freedom", before school starts up tomorrow...and wouldn't you know its a cloudy, rainy day here! So the girls are spending it relaxing and watching movies. I'm back and forth between them, the little guy, and my scrap room! :)

I am playing along with the Summer Camp challenge over at the NoelMignon facebook group! There are tons of prizes and fun challenges. Hoping I get all of them finished as there are some guest designer spots! That would be all kinds of awesome! :)

So here is the first layout I have completed...I goes with Veronica's "S'mores" layers challenge!
