Kiss the Girl

It's time for another reveal at Just My Sketches! This time I used the song "Kiss the Girl" by Keith Urban. I also used a picture from my wedding album so it's very loosely on the page. I couldn't seem to find any good pictures of Andrew & me from our wedding. They were all too dark or too grainy. Sorry about the picture quality. The scanner washed all the color out because the colors on my page were so light. Thanks for looking and be sure to check out all the other great LO's at Just My Sketches!

I {heart} books

This LO is for Helen's blog hop challenge. Her challenge was to dust off your sewing machine & use it on your LO. I was a little reluctant to use mine because I had been having problems with it but, in the end, it worked! I guess it knew I was on a time crunch because I finished this LO with no time to spare! So the stitching is the heart and it's not perfect but it's hard to stitch a heart even when you've drawn it in pencil first! Anyway, thanks for looking!

Sweet Baby

This LO is for Linda's blog hop challenge. Her challenge was to use paints or at least 3 stamps on your LO. I used these new foam stamps from Making Memories that I got on clearance for 99 cents. Then I stamped them in white paint. I also combined the Monday challenge from Sisterhood of Scrap which was to journal in a unique way. I journaled around the picture. It says "You were such a smiley baby! It was always easy to make you laugh. Your eyes would completely squint shut and they still do when you are really laughing. I love it! You are so cute even as a big boy!" Thanks for looking!

This LO is for Susan's blog hop challenge. Her challenge was to do a paper weaving on you LO. This was a fun technique to do! There is a funny story behind this picture. It was taken at a photo shoot with my parents & niece & nephew's before we moved to AZ. Hannah was not in a good mood that day. I don't know why but that explains her somewhat pouty look in the picture. So to get her to cooperate, we had to bribe her with green flip flops from Wal-Mart. It worked! Anyway, thanks for stopping by and you still have time to participate in the challenges if you haven't yet. Start here!


This LO today was done for Cindy's blog hop challenge. Her challenge was to use at least 3 products that were more than a year old on you LO. The chipboard letters I have had for probably 2 years along with the brads & charms. The blue and green paper, I'm sure, is more than a year old because it was at the bottom of a stack :) I think the background paper is more than a year old but I'm not sure. Thanks for looking!

Pokey Tree

This LO was done for Mia's blog hop challenge. Her challenge was to alter a product & use it in your challenge. I altered the presents and the bulb on this LO. I took a rub-on & put it on a coaster and then I cut it out. This picture is of my nephew & I totally love it because you can tell he really, really wants something in that tree & he doesn't care how pokey it is to get it! Thanks for looking!

Jumping pictures

Have you ever taken pictures of anyone jumping? That was the Foto Friday challenge at SOS. The idea was also posted at Shutter Sisters. So I went through the pictures on my computer and found these:

"Fall"ing for you

I made this page for the Sisterhood of Scrap Spring clean-up blog hop. If you haven't had a chance to check it out be sure you do! There are some great challenges up! This page was done for Carla's challenge which was to use at least 3 different fonts/alphas. Not much else to say about this LO, so enjoy!

Bunny leader

I made this layout for a little challenge on a fellow "sister's" blog - Bryar. She had a challenge using the quote "Take me to your bunny leader." I thought it would be perfect with pictures of the kids eating their chocolate bunnies. I actually had this one done last week but I learned the hard way about saving things every 10 seconds! I think I made it too complicated, so this one I made much simpler! Hope you enjoy!

ETA: I forgot to refrence that I got this digital mini kit from The name of the kit is "Eggtastic"

Bad day

It's time for another reveal at Just My Sketches! This time I used the the song Bad Day by Daniel Powter. As the journaling says, I don't really remember why Josh was so upset. I just know he was mad about something! I remember at the time I thought his face was so hilarious I snapped a picture (probably also to keep myself from getting mad too!) We were at Disneyland so there could've been a million reasons why he was mad. Probably the long lines! Anyway, enjoy and don't forget to check out the rest of the amazing cards & LOs from the rest of the design team!
