I'm loving these two pager sketches! here's page 1:

here's page 2:

and finally here are the two together:

I loved stitching on the two pages! here's a close-up of part of the title "goats":

I first stamped in black then stitched in white. Fun I think!
Well thanks for stopping by!

rain, rain go away...

we had a gorgeous weekend and a ton of rain last today is once again dark and dreary with rain!!! the bright spot of today is a blog hop over at My Scraps and More:
I am totally excited! There is much inspiration and definitely loads of scrappy goodness to be had by all!
I have a two pager done for Sketches In Thyme but won't be able to get a picture of it 'til the rain goes away and the sun comes out!
Wow! the rain is coming down hard now! but love the distant sound of thunder!!

I have a layout to share with you that I made yesterday inspired by the April Sketch It Out challenge over at club CK. Here is the sketch:

I really only took a few cues from the sketch and the twist was to try and not use patterned paper so here is the page I ended up with:

now I'm off to use my Silhouette to cut some goodies out for the layouts I'm working on today! thanks for stopping by!

SIT #108 and DT call!

the DT call is still going on over at Sketches In Thyme and this past Thursday was another sketch reveal!
there was a crop at my son's high school last night and I worked on Sketches In Thyme #108 and a few other layouts. The SIT layout is composed of the April "Spencer's" kit from Studio Calico. The photos are from our church's trivia night to raise money for the youth group and their mission trip this summer. Every year someone gets a pie in the face and this year it was our youth pastor Ben! it was a great night and the youth group did a fabulous job! here is the sketch:
and here is what I created:

I have another layout I've been working on for a challenge site that is new to me and was introduced to me a couple of weeks ago. It is Word Art Wednesday! here is the link:  I missed the deadline to enter the challenge but really enjoyed working on this page!
I used my Silhouette on this layout and everything I used is from my stash! the verse in the top right corner is Psalm 91:11 "For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways." The photo is of me when I had to start using a wheelchair around Halloween of last year.
Well I'm off to work on some more layouts that I started at the crop last night. Hope everyone is having a blessed weekend and thanks for stopping by!

SIT #107 and DT call!

I am super excited! Sketches In Thyme has a design team call out!!! I would so LOVE to be a part of this awesome-ly talented team!

and here is sketch #107:
and here is my take on it:

sketch #108 was revealed yesterday and I am going to a crop at my son's high school tonight so I want to work on that there! yay! 
With this last layout I tried using my sewing machine for the first time since being in a wheelchair! My feet don't reach the floor so I wasn't sure how I was going to be able to use the pedal but I put it between my feet and I just went slow and tried to guide the paper as best I could while stepping on the pedal thingy! It will take some more practice but I feel pretty good about accomplishing what I did!
Thanks for stopping by!

funny story!

so this past weekend was CKC St. Louis and I was thrilled to meet up with friends and make some new ones! I spent Friday morning shopping the vendor fair and found some pretty good deals on bling, flowers and embellies! As many of you may know I am a bit of a pretty paper freak...actually I feel it borders on obsession! BUT (if you can believe this...) I only bought one piece of paper! I know, right? So here is a sneak peek at what I used the one piece of paper for:
thanks for stopping by! be blessed my scrappy friends!
