Play & Sweet Dreams


I signed up for Studio Calico Pop of the Page 2 online class, and am loving it. It has helped me expand my scrapbooking style. Here are 2 of the layouts I have done for my "homework".

Week 1 Challenge : was to create a layout inspired by an example given

 


Week 2 Challenge : was to use mixed media. I used Gesso and watercolors for the 1st time and loved it!

v dub luv

I am loving Basic Grey Bowties that I picked up at the Orlando Scrapbook Expo. The papers really went well with this picture of my oldest with his beloved VW Bus. I was super excited to see that there was a car pattern sheet that included a VW Bus and Bug!

I used Kiwi Lane DT Doodles 2013 week 18 sketch and paired it with The Paper Girls Challenge Blog : Challenge # 31 : Doodle Time.

Vroom! Vroom!

I came across Kristine Davidson's blog "Just Being Creative" and fell in love with her sketches. The sketch I used comes from her latest book Creating with Sketches Vol. 2.



The layout also qualifies for the following challenges:

About A Boy For this challenge we had to create a layout of our child being a typical boy.  

"Lasting Memories" : We had to create a layout using only 1 photo.

Mr Man

For the 2 Broke Girls Cooking Class 101 challenge for April was to emboss. I broke out my embossing powders and heat gun that have been collecting dust to add the arrows in the top right corner of my layout.I've forgotten how much fun it was to use!

New Suit

I dug deep into my photo stash for this picture of my oldest from 2011 and paired it with ScrapbookSteals MWM Amber # 7. The papers and buttons have also been hanging around for a few years as well.
