September 15th Challenge

Whew! Are you surviving September? I feel like this month is always a whirlwind because here in Minnesota school starts! It's always great to jump into fall though right? Bring on the pumpkin spice flavored EVERYTHING! :)

Here's the sketch (for the second half of this month) from Let's Get Sketchy

Here's my take on it! My mom, grandma and cousin and I had a great time a Christmas tea this past December. I truly do cherish these sweet moments with my family!

Thanks so much for swinging by my blog!

August 15th Sketch

It's time for our middle of the month sketch challenge from Let's Get Sketchy! I turned the sketch into a two-page layout to get some other pictures scrapped from last summer! Anyone else out there a little behind?! ;)

Here's the sketch:

I chose to scrap some pictures from a road trip that my husband and I took last summer. Because I'm a history nut, I picked out a few historical sites that I wanted to see. We stopped at Mammoth Cave, Lincoln's Boyhood Home in Indiana, Lincoln's home and grave in Springfield Illinois. And finally Herbert Hoover's Home in West Branch, Iowa. Yep...a history lovers tour! 

Here's my take:

Hope you like it and I hope that you join our challenge this month! Thanks for swinging by!

August 1st Sketch

Welcome to August! 
Can you believe were inching into the last month of summer? Whew! That sure did go fast! Well here to kick off the final month of summer is a fun sketch from Let's Get Sketchy!

I'm really excited that this sketch included a spot for multiple photos! Let's face it I'm a little behind on my scrapping so multiple photo layouts for the win! You'll notice that I used a reflective paper as the background and it was a little tough to photograph, but I'm hoping you get the idea of it!

As always, thanks for swinging by my blog today! I really appreciate your ideas, insight and feedback! Happy Scrapping!

June Challenges!

I had some extra time this month so I thought I would enter in the Stick It Down challenge for the month! I loved their two-page sketch and though I would try it out! 

Here's the sketch and my layout:

I also loved their awesome single page sketch:

Here's my take on it:

I loved the hexagonal design of the sketch and although I didn't have the vertical photo strips that the sketch called for, I modified it to work with my horizontal photos. Hope you like it and as always thanks for taking a swing by my blog! :)
