Jan. 15th Challenge

Whew! Mid-way through January already? Here in Minnesota, winters are always a bit chilly, so I'm daydreaming today of a nice warm beach somewhere in the Caribbean! If you're stuck inside this month (like me) then join us at Let's Get Sketchy in scrapping this sketch this month:

Here's my take:

And then I decided to turn it into a two-page layout by adding this page:

After my husband graduated from PA School, he went and interviewed in 3 different states: Minnesota (our home state), California and Michigan. As God would have it, we ended back up in Minnesota <---probably due to my praying mother in pink! 

Thanks for swinging by and don't forget to play with us at Let's Get Sketchy!

January Challenges:


I loved seeing the challenge at Stuck?! Sketches this month and knew I had to play along with it! Here's my layout from a special camp that we helped with this summer known as "Camp Courage" (the faces of the participants have been blurred intentionally). Thanks Stuck?! Sketches for the fun!

October Challenges

Happy Harvest Time everyone! My husband has been busy on the farm which has given me some extra time to scrapbook! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful season too :)

Thanks to Rochelle's amazing sketch for helping me get this page started. I also included Grand Diva's title challenge of only using one word (and I actually only used one letter--the Stanford "S" logo!) This layout is highlighting our recent visit to see my brother at Stanford University. It was an absolutely gorgeous campus and we had a great day exploring the grounds!

Stuck?! Sketches helped me out with this page! I loved this sketch and had to try it out for myself. I'm finally finished scrapping all my pictures from my trip to California this summer! Yay!
Here's my take:

Thanks to Let's Get Sketchy for this next sketch! I love seeing all of the creative design teams inspiration! Here's my take:
