Yummy!

After MUCH deliberation, I decided to join a monthly scrapbook kit club!  I knew I wanted to join a kit club, but the hard part was deciding which one.  I decided on Hip Kit Club, mainly because of all the awesome scrappy video inspiration from design team members like Irit Landgraf and Ashley Laura.  I love their style and get so inspired watching their process videos!  I also love the mix of papers and embellishments in the Hip Kits... they are very versatile.  I received the November kit a couple of days ago. Although, it is a Christmas themed, the mix of supplies is versatile enough to fit many different scrappy themes.  

Here is my very first layout using the November Hip Kit.  I adore this mix of colors and they were perfect for my cupcake photo session with Ms. Priss.  



Thanks for reading!  Have a lovely Sunday!

Baking Cupcakes

My sweetie pie, decided we should make PINKALICIOUS cupcakes, after reading her favorite book by the same title.  She was so excited about helping! She made sure to tell everyone "I cooked the cupcakes!" I have lots of photos from this occasion and many more to scrap. 

In this layout, I challenged myself to use up some of my embellishments and supplies.  This layout took me a LONG time to finish.  It didn't come together easily, but I am really happy with the end result.  I love the layers and touches of gold.   I feel like I am getting my scrappy muse back!  Yeah!

Come Here, Horsey!

It has become a tradition, when Emery visits, to hang out by the fence and call for the neighbors horse.  We have been doing this for months!  Emery coo's at him, yells at him, pleads with him to come over!  Usually, he just ignores us. One day, much to our surprise, "horsey" actually came over and allowed us to pet him! We were both so excited!  I guess, Little Miss Priss's persistence finally paid off! 

So, of course, I had to document this momentous occasion! :) 



Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Creative Scrappers - Sketch Challenge #280

Oh, how this little stinker cracks me up!  We were playing outside and I asked her to stand still for a second, so I could get a picture.  Without skipping a beat, she stops and strikes this pose.  I could not quit laughing!  She is so full a energy and sass!  

I used the latest sketch at Creative Scrappers as inspiration for this layout.  I have been a big fan of the CS sketches for a long time!  This was a fun one to work with.  I am still feeling a little rusty, but still enjoying the process.

Soul Sisters

I feel like I am getting back into my scrapbook groove... with a twist.  I am adding many more mixed media elements in my layouts which feels... just right.  I have been sticking to my "not buying any stash" resolution and using what I have on hand.  This is forcing me to be more creative and I am really enjoying this challenge.  

Anyway, this is my newest layout inspired by my sweet, long-time friend, Michelle.  We are truly kindred spirits. I love her like a sister and so enjoy her company.  This is a picture we took on our summer trip to Ruidoso, NM.  

The color palette and elements were inspired by the current challenge at Scrap Around the World.  This is my first time to participate in one of their challenges, but as inspiring as the mood board was (see below), I am sure it won't be my last.

Fall Tag Trio


Frosted designs issued a challenge to create a fall project using fall colors, ink, and bling.  Here is what I came up with.  I must say I LOVE how these turned out and so enjoyed creating them!  It really puts me in the mood for the season, even though here in West Texas it still feels a lot like summer!

Once Upon a Sketch Challenge

I haven't participated in a sketch challenge in a long time!  I love the current sketch/journaling challenge issued by Once Upon a Sketch challenge blog, so I had to enter! This sketch is great and so open to interpretation!  The journaling is hidden behind the photo. It's all about how much I love this little girl and how happy she makes my life.

Here is my layout for the challenge:



Here is the beautiful sketch:
