50 Layouts ...

...and now it's break time :) 

More of the same pics from previously today for my DS albums. 

Christmas 2010 for my DD albums :). 

This page was made with a sketch in mind for FTS Jan Sketch Challenge :) I flipped it and made it a double pic layout instead of a single pic.  Not really feeling this page but it's done !! 

and more pages for my DD's album from christmas 2010 .. this was done using a sketch from Allison Davis which I found thanks to Keitha and I love her sketches now and plan on using many more ... I also entered in  an ACOT challenge as well! 

It's Christmas!

at least at the scrapping table it is :) here is a layout made easy by Deb. M on my pagekitsplus yahoo group :) thanks Deb! 

This will be for anything goes challenge on CC and is made using a page swap kit from IASST 

... another kit from page kit swap on IASST .. 

and another :) I love the kits and the premade title swaps! 

and my last for now .. have to make dinner and cut veggies and hit the YMCA with the little one and then maybe I'll get a few more done! 

FTS wk 15 & SYTYCS wk 1

Here was a super simple layout .. Thank YOU Concetta for helping me create another fun page :) !

This layout was for FTS weekly challenge #15 - I used distressing, stamping, stickers, bling and brackets! I love the sketch but couldn't find 3 horizontal pics so I switched it up :) ! 

A layout for mom's album ... 

And another for Tyler's which also was for the first So You Think You Can Scrap layout on Colorful Creations. This is now 3 weekly challenges I have joined in on and am loving the fun sketches each week! 
I used Matting, 2+ papers, date strip and ric rac for this layout!

Layouts 26-30

This was a 2 page layout that I made 2 of pretty similar so I didn't photograph the second set. The pieces were from an IASST page kit swap. I love fall and these colors were great and good thing is I have lots of leftovers to make some fall cards :)! 

Here is my SYAO 49 challenge. I liked the sketch but had a hard time with the requirements again. I did my distressing on all pp and machine stitching on the journal box. I also used 8 hearts, 10+ pattern papers, rik rak and tags.  

This was the last page I worked on last night. I had a hard time fitting 5 pics on the page with the limited paper I had but it was finishing Tyler's trip home from the hospital so I wanted it all to match and fit in the album correctly. It came out ok, and it's done! 

This is for a challenge on Colorful Creations, following a sketch from a member spotlight of Jackie Edwards. I really liked the sketch will definitely use it again. 

Today ...

will be spent scrapping a little bit more but I do have to grocery shop and do other errands as my DH goes back to work tonight and I will be the only one here left to play with Tyler .. so these are the last of my pages from yesterdays scrappin' stint and I hope to share a few more tonight ?

... and some more !!

2 page layout using BG lollipop line from years ago! Just misc pics that finally found a home! 

I made three layouts of the same two pics. One for each of our albums. I'm doing this less and less but with pics like these that are special occasions I feel I still need copies for our "own" albums :). I used a page kit swap from "Swapsthatwork" yahoo group and another page kit from a pif from Liana :) TY ladies for making my work easy today! Oh and this first layout will be used on Acot's Lift yourself challenge :) !

This was leftovers from an IASST swap. Actually all I had was some paper and a few embellies that I made work. I really loved the way this turned out for no idea how to get the pics on paper to begin with! 

Another page kit from Donna C. thank you! 

A premade layout I picked up a long the way not sure who from but all I had to do was add some pics and a few die cuts :D! 

2 more challenges!

So 3 more pages and 2 challenges complete! These pages are for my dd's albums and cover the challenges at A Cherry On Top January Sketch and Paper Secrets Jan Sketch with a twist to use Washi Tape! I loved them both and will for sure use them again!

FTS wk 14 & a few more lo's

Here are the first of my 2013 layouts. I should say that I've set my goal to 500 for this year. I did just over 420 in the year 2012 with 200+ swaps, so this year should be a piece of cake as long as I also keep up my goal of cutting back on swaps to 100 (or so ;) ) ... Anyway here are the first layouts of the year, 8 pages to start it off! 

This layout will be for a challenge on Colorful Creations, for the "Boy" Challenge. Only requirements were to use blue, a star and bling. Mick Pepper made this page kit for me and it already had 2 of the requirements on it so adding some blue cardstock finished it off! 

Another page kit from Mick Pepper! Thanks Girl!!
A page kit from Donna Clark :) I love your kits that allow me to make 2 page layouts so easy!

This was a partial kit from IASST about cookies. I added the pattern paper and the title myself :) ! 

This was wk 14 challenge at FTS yahoo group. I used some embossed card fronts I've had for a while from Juanita (thanks!) and the rest was leftovers from my stash. 

Happy New Year!!!

FTS Dec Sketch & SYAO 48

Here is my SYAO 48 .. I really liked this sketch and I loved the banners on the original sketch as well, BUT I wanted to use up these papers and the swap kit that was made to go with it. So I improvised :). I did use a wire paperclip, paint (on a circle stamp that I stamped on the white paper very hard to see) I also painted the  medalallion that says 22 with a yellow paint. I used stamped stitches, and a paint pen to do white stitches, I used my paper crimper to make the pennants corrugated, I also used a Tim Holtz light purple ink (forgot the color name right now) to ink/distress all the white cs, and stamp the mini banner on the journal box. I inked/distressed all the pennants as well and the medallion in the middle. 

 So in short used : wire, medallion, paint, Tim Holtz distress ink, corrugated paper, distressing, stamping and stitching! 

This is a layout made for FTS yahoo group as the Dec Sketch Challenge. The pic is blurry and words are backwards because I took it using the video camera on the new computer :D!
