March Sketches in Thyme

Hi guys!! 

How are things going?  I'm sorry to have been missing in action.  I have been having the hardest time trying to get on my blog to post.  Long boring story, which is not worth sharing.  But the good news is I got on here today!!

I have a new project to share based on the newest sketch challenge at Sketches in Thyme.  Check it out!

I had so much fun making this!!  I love this photo of my sweet funny 87 year old aunt that I love more than anything.  We have gone to craft festivals and flea markets in Arkansas every October for more than 25 years.  This photo was her being silly last October.

Sketches in Thyme has 4 sketches to inspire you each month.  You can enter as many times as you want to try to win the one monthly prize.  So go check out the sketch challenge that is up right now.

Thanks for stopping by and looking !  Until next time....happy scrapping!

February Sketches in Thyme

Hello!  I'm back here today to share a layout I made for the current Sketches in Thyme sketch challenge.  The cool sketch is by sketch designer, Shawn Lahr. I had so much fun putting this layout together!  I have been scrapping some of my Christmas photos.  This one is of my goddaughter and her family.  I used some of my December Flavors of the Month kit from The Scraproom.  YUM!!  

I love how this came out!  What do you think??  You should definitely go check out the sketch challenges at Sketches in Thyme this month!  So much great inspiration!!!  

Thanks for stopping and looking!  

Until next time...happy scrapping!

Sketches in Thyme January 2017

Welcome to 2017!
I'm excited to be back here in 2017.  I have been having trouble logging onto my blog.  For some reason it keeps my son logged in and doesn't let me log in.  So I'm a bit behind on things.  Surprisingly today I was commenting on my friend, Denise's blog http://www.Lalasworld.blogspot.com and when I tried to log onto my gmail account, it let me!  Yay!  So, I rushed back to my blog and here I am writing a post!  lol
Let's start with the new year...have any of you made any resolutions?  I made the same one I make every year...move more, eat less.  So far I'm moving more.  Not sure about the eating less though! lol I'm taking it step by step, literally!  I got the fitbit flex 2 and I've started walking 10,000 steps each day again. 
 Pretty right?
I've been doing really well so far.  My kids are helping out by encouraging me to take walks with them and I try to get in laps around my pool. (walking laps around the outside edge) (Not in the water) That sounds weird but it works for me.  However it has been chilly here in Henderson. It was 33 degrees here yesterday which made walking outside a challenge.  I did it though!! Woot!  I had my 10,000 steps done before the kids got home from school. 
How about you?  Anything exciting to share?  I would love to hear from you!
Now let me share a layout I made for the first sketch challenge this month over at Sketches in Thyme:
The paper is from the December Flavor of the Month Club kit over at The Scrap Room.  I'm obsessed with Christmas papers so I have to confess I used this same kit for my December layout for Sketches in Thyme too.
I was a bit challenged taking the photo.
You should head over to Sketches in Thyme and check out the sketch challenges there this month.  You can enter as often as you want for the one prize given away each month. 
Okay, enough from me....I heading off to walk a bit more. 
Thanks for stopping by and looking.  Until next time...happy scrapping!

November Sketches in Thyme

Hello my friends!  I'm excited to share my latest project with you!  I made this layout using the newest sketch challenge by Bev Code over at Sketches in Thyme. 

I turned the sketch in order to use my vertically oriented photo.  I told you I loved this collection from my kit from The Scraproom!  I used it again here. 

Now it's your turn to be inspired by this great sketch.  Go over to Sketches in Thyme now and join!

Until next time...happy scrapping!

Sketches in Thyme October

Hello again, 

I'm here again with a layout using the fun sketch challenges at Sketches in Thyme.  This extremely unique sketch really brought out my creative juices.  Here's what I came up with:
I made this layout using an adorable paper kit from The Scraproom.  LOVE IT!  I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine for the ink drips.  Color Shine is my favorite spray ink.  I love that it is opaque and never seems to ever clog.  The colors are fantastic and there are a ton of them but I am always surprised that the two colors I tend to always use are teal and mustard! 
I'm happy with how this turned out...how about you?  Ready to go be inspired?  Head over to Sketches in Thyme and join in this month!
Until next time...happy scrapping!

Fun Shaped Card

Hi guys!  Today is the start of the newest class at Online Card Classes. (Wild Card)  And I was inspired to make this fun snowman card.

It was so fun to make and I think he's pretty cute.

I'm off to my daughter's school for a meeting.  Thanks for stopping and looking!

Until next time...happy scrapping.!

Another Post Today!

Hi guys!  I'm back with another layout to share.  I made this one using the September Book Inspired scrap challenge at Scrap our Stash.  I combined it with the Scrappy Friends challenge sketch from Brenda Ragsdale and the This and That Challenge from Rochelle Spears.
I LOVE this kit I got from The Scraproom!  I've made two layouts so far with it.  It's so super cute!!  I'm normally not into fall patterned papers but I think these are saved by the teal.
Thanks for looking!  Until next time (probably in a few minutes *wink*)...happy scrapping!
