from Scrappin Sunday

Yesterday was the first day I actually committed to trying to break out some papers and scrap.  I did manage to get a few layouts (maybe 6?) done in between some other things. These ones were just for me...I'll post the challenge ones I created later this evening.  Using hoarded stash of course :)



Catching you up on stuff!

I've been pretty busy with the kids only being out of school for a week...help!! Here's some recap:
Hot temps and Special Olympics Summer Games; we're grateful for those awesome bleacher tent thingees and lots of cold water and sunscreen.  I thought we were gonna come home with a serious case of sunburn but thank goodness we didn't; that sun was crazy intense!!  The only things we brought home were two silver medals and a ribbon!!!

next,thrift shop finds for an upcoming Pinterest project :)
Hobby Lobby trip and getting seriously confused:  4th July, fall, Halloween and Christmas?
and of course, taking kids out to one of their fav places:  Cracker Barrel :)
So there ya have some of our week one of summer....

Playing along with Sketch~N~Scrap!

In between life gigs, I'm always squeezing in some scrapping IF I can.  This month, I've started out with some new challenge blogs to jumpstart my June mojo. First stop?  Sketch~N~Scrap!  Their June 1st sketch by Lisa Hidy:


Even though the picture isn't perfect, it still captured how amazing the day was celebrating sister's HS graduation!   Used up some vintage Maggie Holmes and also some of my vellum scraps that were begging to be used.

I got ahead of myself for NSD

I just knew that I was going to have free time to scrap the weekend away..but I got ahead of myself because mom duties called....one sick child and moving out of the dorm made for a long day of running around with both kids and I did a total of 5 layouts!  A measly 5...my full intention was to knock out like maybe 15??  Oh well, 5 is better than none...and no time to even get my Counterfeit Kit together...{sigh}  But on that note, I did do one challenge (so far-I still have 3 more days to add more) from our friends at Scrap Our Stash-my old stomping ground!
Their Challenge #2 is the May "Jump Start" sketch from the Scrap Room (with a twist!)

MY TAKE:  The twist was to use FLAIR-my background paper and my flair both came from an old (I know, I'm a kit hoarder)  Clique Kit- June 2016 to be exact!  The background paper was a CK exclusive-: Blue Star (Designed by Inna Moreva) and the flair was part of the kit too but I'm not sure who made it.

NSD Kill a Kit Challenge?? Nailed it!

Normally I NEVER EVER "kill" a kit....maybe it's because I make them way too big and it's unattainable??  HAHAHA...Well, if you look at my previous post, one of the NSD challenges on the Victoria Marie Facebook Group was to "kill a kit."  I actually managed to create 4 layouts out of this mini kit!  I struggled because I don't normally keep a lot of sports embellishments around but I think I did a great job of filling in the space.   MINI-KIT:   4 layouts....will have to try this when going to a crop.  That one pack of Jolee embellishments got  broken apart and used!! 

 LOVED LOVED LOVED the custom Orioles/Birdman papers that I got at my LSS Photo Scraps-I wished I had had just one more piece though!  For my local peeps, she has Orioles, Redskins, Ravens and more!  I even got some awesome Stevenson paper (for Thing 1's college pics when I finally get around to those) so if you are looking for something specific, holla at Tracy!

Happy iNSD!

It's (inter) National Scrapbook Day!  I had some mom stuff to do earlier today but good thing I took about 2 hours last night to do some (well I did forget to send pictures to Walgreens lol) prep work so I am ALL READY to finally sit down and create some stuff.  My goal for the Round 2 of the WHOGas challenge is 20 layouts for May and I intend to knock them all out this week :)

I'll be starting with the Victoria Marie Facebook Group Challenges.  One of the challenges is Challenge #2;  Kill a Kit Challenge.  Either grab a kit from your stash or make a kit and then kill it!
I chose to make a mini kit with these awesome custom papers that the talented Tracy @ PhotoScraps (my LSS) makes!

What challenges are you working on???!!
