I'm Back :)

It's been awhile since I've blogged went on a little bit of an hiatus but I'm back and I'm scrapping again :)

I'm still working on my friends cottage album.  My goal is to get it finished by the end of March, wish me luck!

As always I love a good challenge and discovered LOAW over at Studio Calico.  They're so cool and so fun and really got my creativity flowing.  I've set another goal to try and do everyone of these challenges this year :)

Here is what I've don for January so far

January LOAW Challenge 1 - Finish up a layout that's stayed unfinished on your table.

Definitely challenged my inner Paige Evans for those rolled fish:)

January LOAW Challenge 2 - A recipe challenge (I LOVE these!) we had to use the following

  1. Use a piece of pattern paper that you have been hoarding
  2. One embellishment that you've hoarded.
  3. Current favourite alpha
  4. A Mixed Media technique

Here is my take, it was also featured on the Cocoa Daisy Blog which has me super excited and totally made my day!!

January LOAW Challenge 3 - Use this pin as a prompt.

I loved how this one came out!

I'm going to be working on Challenge #4 today and I'm looking forward to getting some regular blogging done again as well :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Cute vs Spook

It's been awhile since I had a blog post.  Life sometimes just gets away from me at times.  Hopefully things will be more settled now and I can do some more scrapping :)  Did a quick one today, mixing some older product with some newer product.  My oldest girl, her boyfriend and my son Matthew carving pumpkins last year.  The boys really wanted to make something "spooky" and Chelle wanted "cute".  The compromise was that Chelle got her own pumpkin while the boys

Pattern paper is Twinkle, Twinkle from Studio Calico
Letter Stickers are Doodlebug and American Crafts
Stickers are SRM Press, K&Co and Jillibean Soup
Dots are Basic Grey
I also used some old gold flecked mullberry paper and some polkadot vellum.

Liking how it came out :)

Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone has a GREAT day!

I'm Right Here Always

I recently won Jill Sprotts Class - Scrapbooking from the Soul and I'm so excited because journaling is something I've gotten away from over the past few years. This page was really hard for me to do and I shed a few tears when doing the journaling but It feel good getting it down. My Son Derek is going through a hard time right now and it's breaking my heart that I can't fix it :( I just want him to know I'm here for him always.

I Also tied in the BOYS challenge over at Studio Calico and took inspiration from Sasha's layout "Let's be Adventurous", I loved her use of banners :)

Journaling Reads

I miss you. I miss your hugs. I miss your smile. I miss having you around. I miss our Harry Potter Marathons. I miss you being happy. I miss you.

I don't know. I don't know how to connect with you. I don't know how to make you smile anymore. I don't know how to fix the hurt. I don't know how to make it better. I don't know.

I wish. I wish I could my arms around you and take away all the pain. I wish I could see your beautiful smile every day. I wish I knew what would help make you better again. I wish you wouldn't shut me out. I wish.

I love you. I love how gentle you can be. I love your beautiful smile. I love having you around. I love that we both love Harry Potter. I love seeing when you are happy. I love how smart you are. I love your sense of humour. I love you.

I'm here. I'm here when you're happy. I'm here when you're sad. I'm here when you're angry. I'm here for you always, when you need me. I'm here.

Supplies Used:

  • Frame is Dear Lizzy
  • Here & Now Card is Project Life Vintage Travel Core Kit
  • Letter stickers are Basic Grey
  • Wood Veneer and Love stamp are Studio Calico

CSI Case file # 86

LOVING this weeks colours!!  The photo is of my oldest daughter Chelle and her boyfriend Garon, they're so cute.  They've been dating for just over a year now :)

I got the quote and the inspiration for the design from this Pinterest Post, I thought it was very fitting for the photo.  All products either came from my Studio Calico Marks & Co Kit or from the Molly Kit.

I used all 5 colours
For the evidence I used scallops, art media (I used gesso to soften the pattern paper) and I tied some hemp to the photo frame :)
I hand journalled for the Testimony.

Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!
