Scrapbook Circle Challenge... Mixed Alpha Title

This is the 3rd challenge that Scrapbook Circle has posted on their blog and I vowed that I would participate because I was superexcited when it was announced that the blog was going to be more interactive, so it only makes since for me to actually play along! So, during my Monday nigt insomia I stayed up literally till the crack of dawn and worked on this LO. I so wish that I were a fast scrapper, but alas like everything I do-- I have over process it!

So....I finally cracked open my March Scrapbook Circle kit, Vintage Market , after drooling over it for a little over a week! I made this layout about my son and I spending the day together on Super Bowl Sunday. I also used some things from the Crate Paper Toy Box collection kit that I added on to my kit. I love me some Crate Paper, and I'm pretty proud of myself for diving into it and not hoarding it like I usually do! (I've also cut into it to make a mini album for a babyshower- yeah- go me). I made some of the cardstock elements from the collection kit more dimensional by adding chipboard under them....love doing this because I feel like I'm getting a bargain by making my own chipboard elements! And I used some twine from the Twinery.

Ok, well that's enough babbling...Thank your for taking the time to stop by! It really means a lot to me! Have a beautiful day!

Sketchy Thursdays 3.17

This LO is based on this weeks Sketchy Thursdays sketch! Iused my February Noel Migon kit- Truely Scrumptious and some bits and pieces from my stash. And, so sorry for the glare, but I just took this pic at like 3AM!!! I should have been asleep hours ago, but I was inspired tonight by watching a live Ustream of the reveal of a new kit club {Front Porch Kits} which is here locally at one of my favorite scrap studios {The Little Blue House}, so had to get a little scrappy during these wee hours while the scrappin' spirit was with me!!!

Project 12....February 2011

February was a fun month filled with lots of memories! I have quite a few pics, but have yet to edit and print them. Luckily, I had this photo available to use as a focal point- a pic of my son on Super Bowl Sunday when we went to downtown Fort Worth to have lunch and watch the live ESPN broadcast in Sundance Square! It was a pretty big deal having the Super Bowl right in our back yards! Oh and that reminds me, I need to document the amazing and surprising snow days that we had too!!! That was a pretty big deal for us to have snow days!

For my layout I used the KI Memories stitched calendar page again, alphas from my stash, and a few bits and pieces from my February Truely Scrumptious kit from Noel Mignon. Love this kit! It is jam packed with sweetness and I have only used a teeny tiny bit of it so far! I do miss using the Becky Fleck Project 12 sketches because two pages allow for so much more--more photos, more stuff, and more journaling space! But I'm going to stick with the calendar pages this year because it does provide a quick and easy way to give an overview of the month. I could always use the provided sketches to make a more detailed LO about the month too! Hmmm...so much to scrap, so little time! Hopefully the scrap fairy will visit me and I will get lots accomplished for the remainder of this month and actually for the rest of the year! That's all for now....
