Sassy Lil' Sketches

I had time a week or so ago to play with a few of the August sketches at Sassy Lil' Sketches, I just love their sketches!
I used week #1's sketch for this layout about Austin's birthday gifts:
and for this layout I used week 2's sketch:
With heading back to work tomorrow, after having a wonderful summer off, I am hoping to play with the card sketches and the other layout sketch sometime soon.
Thanks for stopping by!

New Sketch!

There is a new sketch challenge up at the My Scraps & More blog and the prize is the Playground Collection from Echo Park! I love the fun, bright colors in that collection!
I played with the sketch yesterday. I flipped the sketch 90 degrees and used a pic that Sierra took of Greg and I at the New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins, CO. We each got 4 tokens to sample their beer, but I could only sample 2, the second one really hit me, it was so potent! Guess I can't drink as much as I used to, lol. Anyway, 1 of the tokens made it back to WI and I used that on my layout:
Thanks for stopping by and hope you find some scrappy time today!

Sketchy Thursday & MSW Challenge!

I fell in love with the 8.11 sketch at Sketchy Thursday earlier this week and just HAD to use it! I combined the sketch with Ginni's Recipe challenge at MSW, part of her recipe was to use lots of pics, so I printed my pics wallet sized and decided to do a 2 page layout (which I rarely do).

Love the outcome of it!

Thanks for visiting today!

A Quick Post

Just wanted to share my sketch and layout I posted over at My Scraps & More the other day. I have been loving the look of white space lately and have been adding (or should I say, leaving) more of it to my layouts lately.
Here is my sketch:
and my layout is of Austin at the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, CA last summer playing in the ocean. I used Echo Park's yummy Splash collection.
Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful Saturday!

MSW Reveal!

Where is August going? It is flying by for me, before I know it, it will be back to school and that means back to work for me. :( I guess it will be nice to get back into a routine once again.
I thought I posted my August reveals for My Sketch World, but I guess I didn't. So I will share them with you today.
Lucy posts sketches usually twice a month (layouts and cards) and they are fantastic! Go check them out!
Here is the card sketch:
A lady I used to work with at the Bistro years ago, celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary in June, so I created this card with the sketch for her and her hubby:
Here is the layout sketch:
and my layout of Austin on July 4th:

Scrap lift challenge

I posted a challenge at My Scraps & More on August 8th and just wanted to share my layout. I lifted my friend Lisa's(pictures2pages) Circle of Girls layout. I fell in love with her layout and just had to "lift" it! You can check out the challenge and Lisa's layout here.
My layout is of my sister, Donna, myself and our Goddaughter, Kianna.
Thanks for the inspiration Lisa!
