Susan's Challenge Part 2

Susan R had a Card Challenge last Sunday 

a link to her blog is here

She had a great card challenge using this sketch

Here is mine 
I ran out of room for a quote - 
but this is what I cam up with 
my three is these buttons holes
The nubs were in a large bag of buttons I bought 
for the girls around Valentines day - 
They have been in a bag on my desk since February - 

 not a great colouring job
I had it half coloured in a bin since the fall 
nothing feels better than getting it completed & used up!

Thanks for the inspiration Susan

Wendy's Challenge - The party Continues!

I had to come up with a layout with the number 3 on it for the next challenge 
none of the kids had a 3rd birthday to scrapbook -
nor am I printing pictures till I have mine done !
so here it is -- 
I wanted to scrapbook my kids on 
Taylor's Trampoline last summer - 
she got it for her birthday but again 
I didn't have any standout center of the stage photos 
- so this worked out very well .

Here is a link to her page;
Wendy wanted a three and it needed to be influenced by this sketch 

Here is what I came up with 
I used the same layout as the pictures-
started with 2 patterns behind the photos
and the bunting gave me the idea for trim ....
 3 jumps for fun
 good thing it didn't need to be an exact match 
but I think it worked out really well..

Go dig out those tricky pictures and get them done !

Card Challenge

Lisa had an interesting challenge -
 her challenge was to make a Birthday card using 3 punches and three colours - 
again I left this one for a bit -
but when it came to it -
I looked into my drawer 
saw my Cupcake punch and it just came together 

Here is a link to Lisa's Blog

So here it is, 
nothing fancy but I like it 

I used my cupcake punch
an oval punch
then the tab punch in the top corner
a cheat really but everything else seamed too busy.

all in all I can see me making this card again 

hope  you have a creative day !

Twist back Thursday Sketch #5

Over at Sketch n scrap they have a bunch 
of challenges going on for their birthday bash
and if you have been on my blog at all in the last couple weeks 
you know I have nailed almost all of them,
One is stumping me but I am on it ! lol

Anyway I have been on a real roll with getting my scrapbooking 
caught up & getting these challenges under my belt -
today being no exception.

Here is a Link to the challenge
Sketch n Scrap

This is the use of an old sketch and giving it a twist
 here is the sketch 
the twist is the pictures must be outdoors.

so I dug in my box of pictures 
( which is starting to look low! )
and found a set that really didn't have a great focal picture

here is what I came up with 

Not sure how I came to the decision to pick these papers- looks better in person
but her it is done - 
I found these pictures hard as there was not real one stand out great picture
but I wanted to capture the moment - 
need a bit of hidden journaling on this but I can get that done 

Hope you have a fun memory making day!

Sketch N Scrap - Heather's Colour Palette Challenge

The Next challenge was by Heather Hall
from Sketch n Scraps Birthday bash.
I have been by Heather's Blog a few times as she makes
and sells beautiful Prim items You will want the check her out!
Here is a Link to her Blog:

Heather's Challenger was to use this Colour Palette.
I was working on an earlier layout for a different site and chose these colours.
i know they say you can use one layout for different sites but that feels like cheating,
especially when i am trying to get layouts done - 
so I created a second page making it a two Page layout! 
One page for each site! Tada! 

here is what I came up with for page two:
 There is pink and blue in the background paper  & the hexagons.
I added the Green Hexagon paper with green accents in the hexagons.
The first page which I used for a previous challenge on another rite matched better, 
but none the less I have gotten my photos scrapped!
Here is the layout you all have seen earlier this week:
and here is the two page spread!
These picture where from her Birthday years ago.
All the little girls would go to a studio and have their pictures taken -
they would take home one photo and parent could purchase the rest.
Of course there was also a huge fee for the Birthday Girl's Parent.
I cleaned out one of my office at work,
and set up a photo shoot of my own, 
The sitting area became a dance party while you waited for your turn.
they had a blast at a fraction of the price!

Hope you all have a great thrifty day!

Wondered over to Sketch n Scrap & got another project done!
I completed their card sketch.
Here is a link to the blog:

 have a super dee dooper day!
adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
