Robin's Nest

Hey scrappy friends!
Robin's Nest is having a design team call, so I thought I would throw my hat in the ring! I enjoyed being on their team last time and love creating with their goodies.

Here is the layout I created for their DT call:

I used Robin's Nest Fleur Plum for my background and added some Gesso around my photo.
Then I took a stencil and added some modeling paste. I then added watercolors using a brush and watercolor pencils.

  I topped it off with white and black spatters and added some purple diamond shaped Dew Drops along with some sprinkles of Grape Archival Seeds.

Finally, I added a few doilies and flowers along with some Dew Drops to the center of a few of my flowers and some of that yummy silver straw. Love that stuff!

  I added some purple thread in my cluster of flowers and beneath my title. The "yesterday" is from the SHOP as well.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with me!
Happy Scrapping!

Happy Saturday Peeps!
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Today I am sharing a layout I created for today's lift challenge at My Scraps & More. I lifted a layout by the wonderfully talented Julie181. I used Pink Paislee Cedar Lane and came up with this layout of Sierra:

I added watercolor and stamped to create my back ground:

I added lots of layers and gold accents:

More close ups of the layers:

Thanks Julie for the inspiration!

Thankful For You!

I'm here to share a layout I created for the Tuesday Trigger challenge today over on the My Scraps & More forum. My challenge is to use the word "Thankful" on your page.
I used Photoplay Autumn Day line for this layout of my kids, hubby and myself:

Here are some close ups:

I added some watercolor to my background along with some enamel dots. I also added some pennants and stickers.

I used a card for my title and added some other alphas to finish it off.

I added some stitching and more stickers popped up with foam tape.

This is such a fun fall line, but as you can see, I used it for a summer family photo.

Let's Do This!

Another weekend has come and gone. Why do they have to go so fast?
Looking forward to \the 4 day weekend coming up! Just need to get through these next 3 days, LOL!
Today I am sharing a layout I created for the November Sketch Challenge #31 over at Scrap Our Stash. The challenge was to use a sketch and also to use a bingo board.
I used Pink Paislee Memorandum along with embellies from my stash for this layout of Sierra and one of her friends:

I used some wood veneer leaves by Lawn Fawn. I added Gelatos to 2 of them.
I also stamped a few leaves using Tim Holtz Distress Ink on kraft cardstock and then fussy cut them
The flair is from Crate Paper:

I added my journaling right on the background paper and also added a few stickers and some stitching:

I fussy cut the clipboard and punched a butterfly out of it. I then backed that with purple patterned paper. The "Hello" veneer is from Studio Calico and colored with Gelatos:

Here is the sketch and bingo board:
I used the G column:
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with me!

Me & Her

Hi there!
Turtle Soup has a mini crop that is starting today if you are looking for some fun challenges, stop over. We would love to have you play along!
I am sharing my layout I created for my challenge today. I used Fancy Pants Meology and came up with this layout of Sierra and I:

I love the colors in this fun line!
I used lots of the diecuts and just layered them:

The title was already done for me, all I had to do was glue it down:

I did fussy cut the camera and pink flowers:

and of coarse, I added some paint spatters to the background:
Have a wonderful day!

Here & Now

Hey there!
Happy Wednesday! Hope you are having a great week so far!
Just want  to share a layout I created for the Pinspirational Crop over at the My Scraps & More forum.
I used Pink Paislee Memorandum for this page of my daughter all dressed up for Homecoming:

I cut the circle using a cut file on my Cameo and painted it with watercolors. I then stitched it. I added some paint spatters to the background to give more color.

I cut the Here & Now from the teal file folder that is under my photo. This is a great way to get more for your money- cut out the unseen.

I love the gold frames in this collection! I added some of the washi tape, a few stickers and some thread.

I punched a butterfly out of one of the papers and added it.
This line is one of my favorites from Pink Paislee!

In addition to our "First Class" and "In the Mailbox" badges, we will be randomly selecting two entries to win children's books written by one of the CIE DT!
I used some old papers from my stash- Girls Paperie, I think and came up with this:

Yup, I am starting my Christmas cards and have been for a few months.

Enjoy your day!

Today I am sharing a page I created using sketch #92 at Sketch-N-Scrap.
I used LYB Fern & Forest for this family reunion layout I have been hoarding this line forever and thought I better use some of it.

Here are a few close ups:
I love that cute little guy on the mushroom sticker. I popped him up with foam tape. The alphas have been in my stash for quite some time. I added them for my title and stitched. The clear/black journaling spots I have had in my stash a long time.

The "time together" sticker was perfect for this page:

I love those little cloud stickers:

The burlap hearts and wood button are also LYB and have been in my stash. The stickers are from Simple Stories:

Here is the sketch:
Thanks for taking a peek today!

Hey there! Happy Wednesday!
I'm here today to share a layout I created for the Pinspirational Crop going on over on the My Scraps & More forum. We would love to have you join in on the fun!
One thing I pin a lot of on Pinterest is food, whether it's an appetizer, main coarse or dessert, I love pinning food!
This layout was inspired by a Pepperoni Pizza Braid recipe. You can check out the photo and challenge over on the forum.
I used Simple Stories We Are Family for this page:

I used Gelatos to color the Wood Veneer pieces:

The word "lucky" is from the Bits & Pieces:

                        I added some paint spatters, sequins and heart veneer throughout my page.
                                                              Have a great day!
