Let's Scrap Sketches Layouts

I have been falling behind on my blog posts of my recent layouts.. 
probably because I haven't had much time to put into creating lately...
BUT I have played along with Let's Scrap Sketches ... so here is what I have done!!!

This is from this weeks sketch... here is the sketch I played with:


Here is my layout:

Of course I don't seem to be able to scrapbook much of anything besides this beautiful little boy pics... this layout will be in the kids album of our little Yummy boy, Preston. 

I had bits and pieces left from my 100 Days Of Summer pack from Simple Stories and it was perfect for these pics.... 

A hot July day having a BBQ at Dave and Cindy's with the kids... Yummy does love the water, he is a little fish. No fear.. jumping in over and over with or without his little vest... guess who is getting swimming lessons this summer!! lol 

I listed a few of his favorite things from this summer.. popsicle were definitely top of his list and still are... ;0)

You have thru Tuesday night midnight to play along with this sketch at Let's Scrap Sketches so come play along with us for a chance to win a Gift Certificate by Clique Kits!!! ;0) 

Sooooo I was bad and didn't post my post for last weeks layout from Let's Scrap Sketches so I am going to add it to this post... ;0) 

Here is the sketch I played with:


This sketch challenge is closed at Let's Scrap Sketches but it never hurts to hold onto this sketch for future use or use it now too!!

Here is what I did with this sketch:

I LOVE these pics of Raym and his lil Preston... LOVE THEM!!! Something so incredibly sweet about capturing these moments with father and son....

Sooooo here is what I came up with:

a couple of 'selfies' I took of my 'new hair' right before my 48th birthday...

Let's Scrap Design Team Challenge #192

This Design Team Challenge at Let's Scrap was put up by Susanna Granroth...

Her challenge was:

Create a one page layout using Sketch 3-3-10

You could choose which side of the sketch you wanted to use or even use a part in the middle. Flip it turn it or just use it as inspiration (which is what most of us do anyways... looks at it and take off running) NO cards were allowed in this challenge.

So then we had to pick a row or a column from the table below and use those elements in the layout. 

As well as going to Let's Scrap and picking a tutorial and working with it on the layout... alot of moving lil parts in this challenge... so it really made it a challenge to get it all working for you and your pics.. but it was fun!!!

So here is what I came up with:

I flipped the sketch and worked with the mid part of the sketch... I picked the second row across for my goodies and I used a tutorial on Let's Scrap that showed you how to use your embossing folders for stamps. Sooooo I have an arrow, hand wrote some journaling about the pics, added a few eyelets and some twine to the bottom of the row of pics and used my embossing folder and stamped some background on the page... 

I love these pics (Ok I love all pics of him) of Yummy walking across the front lawn using the house phone to call his Daddo... He would push on the buttons and jabber away and then tell him he loved him and pretent to hang up.. and dial again... what a cutie!! 

So come and play along with the challenge.... it is fun to challenge you scrapbooking style with something like this... Great challenge Susanna!!!
