Hi there!

Here's a layout that was submitted at Turtle Soup for their Scraplift Thursday (Apr 10) Challenge.  You can see the challenge here.

This is the layout to lift:

This is my take on the lift:
My layout is titled, "Awesome"
The Boy Scouts adventure climbing Katahdin.  What a wild but crazy time!  So many memories and so many laughs!  The beautiful views along the hike/climb were breathtaking!  Certainly something I will always remember!

Supplies used:
Paper: gcd Studios
Metal Spiral Clip
Various Stickers & Tags

Twine was knotted around this sticker tag.  Andrew is in the photo on the right with the bright orange t-shirt... just standing there looking at the awesome views!

I added the arrow sticker after the page title... pointing towards our amazing journey.

A cluster of stickers and tags.

And... I couldn't resist adding this clear sticker under the photo.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Here's the prize up for grabs this month from Scrappers Garden:

This is what I created titled, "Family Matters."
I was inspired by all the green from the inspiration photo and used various size triangles, adhering some with pop dots for dimension.  And, of course, smaller triangles for the banner below the photo.

Hi there!

Hope you're all enjoying your Tuesday!  :)

I have a layout to share that was submitted at Soul Scrappers for their Lift Challenge (LIFT12).  

This is the layout to "lift"

And here's my take on the lift:
That grin!  Too bad he's hiding most of it behind his hands!  We went out to eat while he was home this past summer.  Fun times!

Supplies used:
Paper: DCWV
Words: Tim Holtz
Clear Sticker Letters
Die Cut Border

Because the words were so small... I adhered them onto a wider strip of pp.
Lots of distressing here.

In the lower corner I added some torn paper strips and cut the gears from the pp.

More paper strips and gears in the upper corner.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ok... so this is my last post for tonight!

This layout was another entry at Turtle Soup for their Monday (Apr 7) DT Sketch Reveal.  I really loved this sketch and had the perfect photo for it!  You can see the info here.

The sketch by Bev:

And my layout titled, "Priceless!"
I absolutely LOVE the beautiful expression on my daughter's face when she opened up one of her presents and it was what she wanted!  Totally priceless!  :)

Supplies used:
Paper: My Mind's Eye
Color Box Inks
Wood Embellies: Studio Calico
Decorative Trim
Glitter Letters
Gold Embellies: Jolee's
Glitter Gems: Home Made

All the paper edges were inked.  The wood embellies were also inked just enough to give them some color.

Just below the glitter letters I added the cute little camera.

In the lower left of my page is a cute golden embellie.

A closer look at the flower cluster.  The flowers were inked along the edges and in the centers of each petal.  The larger flower has a gold embellie and the other flowers have glitter gems.  The wooden heart was tucked within the flowers... and was inked with different pink inks.

The leaves were brushed with a gold ink for a different effect and some beaded branches were tucked behind them.

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you enjoyed my layout!  :)

Look What I Can Do!

My grandson when he was five years old!  What a little cutie!  Even though this truck was plastic, he was SO happy to lift it up over his head, saying, "Look at me!"  :)

Supplies used:

Rick Rack

Ribbon was looped on one end and twine looped through it and tied in a bow.
