it's been awhile!

I think I'm going to try blogging again...but not sure if I will keep it up....haven't posted on here since October of last year and just finished my first layout since then!!! Thank goodness for the scrapbook convention and its re-inspiration!!! I used a sketch from the April Sketch Challenge over on the Scrappin' Peeps board:

and here is what I came up with:
"all grown up"
so there you have it! like I said I may or not be able to keep this up but I am going to try....thanks for looking!

the sun is out!

ahhh! it's a beautiful day! the snow is melting with the sun shining brightly! here is a layout that was inspired by My Scraps & More #59:

I searched around in my stash and came up with 2 older papers from Daisy D's. Remember them?? The chevron arrows are hand stitched using the Amy Tangerine template and I stamped the brackets. The blue studded snowflake stickers are from Imaginisce for Archiver's. A simple page really! Thanks for stopping by! Blessings!

a snowflake frenzy of lights!

this next layout was inspired by a sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:

here is what I came up with:

the bottom 1/3 of the page is misc. snowflakes from Queen & Co. to a hand stitched one to silver brads, lots of  clear rhinestones and such! The paper is American Crafts "Peppermint Factory" and the rest are misc. cardstock. Here are a few close-ups:

this layout also works for the 1-2-3 Get Scrappy challenge for this month:
I did lots of bling, the color blue and snowflakes!

this was fun! hope everyone is having a great week! blessing my scrappy friends!

a scrappy snow day!

so school is cancelled for today and husband is at home too! me? I'm just scrapping away! I was inspired and created this next layout from a sketch I found at Stuck?!:

I turned the sketch on its side and changed up some of the elements to fit my own style:

I used My Mind's Eye for the page and some Heidi Swapp plus misc. cardstock for the layers. I really am enjoying popping up elements so the layout has texture and depth:

my go-to trend is still banners!! thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave some love! blessings!
