Two More LO's for February






I got two more lo's done for the SNC challenges.

One was to use a TV show as a title so I used Wild Kingdom as my title and used a picture from me at Busch Gardens in Tampa in the early 80's. I was holding two parrots in the picture but it is hard to see. I used a DCWV paper stack with Safari themed papers. I have had it for a while but haven't used it much. I'm not thrilled with how it turned out but it looks ok.

The second one was to use 3 hearts on your lo. I could not come up with anything since I am not a big hearts person. I had a sketch though and when I looked at my Cosmo Cricket Togetherness chipboard pieces I saw that one had 3 hearts on it so I went with it. I used all CC Togetherness papers and chipboard for the lo and a picture of us at a Destin mini golf course in 2009 for the picture.

Thanks for looking.

National Zoo lo






I am using this lo for 5 different challenges. I think that is a record for me. I am using it for 2 at SNC, the 52 week challenge and the February challenge of using 2 punches. I used two border punches and 2 Martha Stewart butterfly punches also. The pictures are from the spring we went out to Washington D.C. for a friend of Terry's wedding. We got a chance to go to the National Zoo one day and had a lot of fun. Will is about 1.5 years old in these pictures. I used Basic Grey's Orgins collections for all patterned papers and basic cardstock for the rest. All the papers except for the background piece were all scraps which is for challenge 3 which is at Lasting Memories the challenge is to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. The next challenge is a sketch challenge at Get Your Sketch On and the last one if for The Paper Variety and was a sewing challenge. I met that by using my Bazill stitching guide and sewing the wavy line down the side of the paper. This is my first time doing that and I have some more that are boy shapes that I want to try and use next. This is my first time submitting anything for The Paper Variety which is run by two of my friends from SNC. Thanks Abby & Suzanne for giving me a chance to enter.

San Francisco LO




I created this lo for the 52 week challenge at SNC. I need a quick lo and this paper worked great for it. I had a stack I got cheap at Michaels for Paperhouse travel papers. I came across this photos recently and knew they would work perfect with this paper. I took a trip to California with my grandmother when I was 14. We went to San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Tijuana, Mexico and Yosemite National Park. I want to scrap some more pictures from this trip but will have to find the right lo's for them. Thanks for looking.

Oh Boy! LO





I created this lo using the sketch at http://sassylilsketches.blogspot.com/ I really liked the sketch and found the perfect pictures to use for it. I used Fancy Pants Rough and Tough collection for the papers and rub ons. I have had this collection for a while and not used much of it but I think it worked well for this lo. Thanks for looking.

Here are a few videos from when Will and I went kayaking in Dunedin, FL.  We had a lot of fun doing it and Will had 2 dolphins swim right in front of his kayak.  I can't wait to try it again.

At The Farm layout



I created this layout for the Lasting Memories (http://www.kcclayoutchallenges.blogspot.com/ ) sketch challenge this week. I am also using it for my 52 weeks layout and the Superbowl challenge at Scrappin-n-Chattin. For the superbowl challenge we were to use either Packers or Steelers colors only on the lo. I thought the Packers colors would work since they are the same as John Deere. Last Labor Day my parents took Will and I to the farm in Stonington. Will and I got to ride in the combine and see how everything works. Afterwards we had lunch with everyone before heading home. We had a lot of fun.
