Creative Scrappers Sketch

I really liked the look of the sketch challenge over at Creative Scrappers too.
It just seemed like a really usable sketch and it came together super quick.
I am doing a collection cleanup (where I use up all the last bits of a collection and do as many pages as I can with it) of Amy Tangerine's Yes Please. These supplies were already out and ready to go so I used them.
I have several more pages to share with my cleanup but I think I might still get one more page done with it!
I love how it feels when I totally use it up.

Anyways, back to the sketch...

Hope you're having a creative day

Scrapfriends sketch challenge

I have been super productive this January and I have a whole bunch of stuff to share. I love it when it just comes so easily!

I did this following page for sketch challenge #21 over at ScrapFriends.
Here is the sketch:

A lot of the sketches they offer are a bit more artsy than I am, but I love the challenge and enjoy playing around.
Here is my page:

Gosh it had been a long time since I had done a page on my husband, I felt kinda bad. I have quite a few with him in them and with the children but not just him. I must fix that this year.

Have a fab day

We're kind of a big deal..

This page had been sitting in my finish off folder for a while now.. sometimes I struggle to do the journaling at the same time as I create. My brain doesn't work that way. So I thought as a way to get them finished up I would give myself two weeks to empty my finish up folder. So far it's working!

I did this page for the January sketch over at Life Paper Scrapbook.. here is the sketch:

Here is my page:

I am so enjoying using this Hello Again Collection by Carta Bella, it is beautiful, I have liked it so much I got some more of it last week. This page is about these two small people and their bond and friendship. They are such a blessing to me.

Thanks so much for coming by
Have a fab day

A couple more pages to share...

What a beautiful morning this morning! The weather has been very changeable lately so I am happy to see the sunshine for two days in a row.

The pages I am sharing today uses two of my most favourite collections... the first is Maggie Holmes oh I love myself some Maggie Holmes. Her stuff is so easy to use to and just really beautiful.  This page is about our Valentines Day last year... the girls had friends over after school and then sat outside to eat their dinner together..

Supplies: Patterned Papers - Maggie Holmes Flea Market, Heart Pin - Dear Lizzy, Love Paperclip - Freckled Fawn, Enamel Dots - MME, Layering Pieces - Maggie Holmes Flea Market

This page is made  using the Carta Bella Hello Again... I really love this collection, I didn't buy it initially because I was trying not to buy EVERYTHING but I knew I would get some bit and pieces of it eventually. The texture of this paper is awesome and reminds me of the old crate paper. Luckily before Christmas Scrappinpatch had a sale and I got the collection pack then, love a bargain!

Supplies - Papers and Stickers - Carta Bella Hello Again, Wood veneer - Studio Calico, Enamel Dot - MME

This page is about those moments in between the fighting when my children are actually nice to each other and they take the time to teach each other something. My favourite part is that stick together glue bottle - total awesomeness.

I'm working to get my december daily finished up and my project life's last few weeks of 2013. I have started 2014 and am hoping to share the first week tomorrow.

Better get moving, Gabriella wants me to do 'dough' with her, I make some terrible animal shapes, she looks at me all strange like - and what is that supposed to be?  I am cultivating her imagination... one badly put together dough giraffe at a time.

Have a blessed day

A new year....

Happy New Year!
Oh my gosh it's taken me until the 22nd of January to wish you a Happy New Year that is kinda bad... I hope the rest of the year I'm not running behind like that.

I saw this great sketch over at Creative Scrappers and thought I would give it a go. Time is a little hard to come by at the moment with the children home for the summer but I've managed to create in short little bursts.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my page:

The challenge is open till the end of the month so why don't you join me, it came together really easily.

Thanks for coming by... hope you have a fabulous creative week.
