I think I am finally getting back in the swing of this scrapbooking stuff!! I have spent soo much time getting blog stuff and Admin stuff done with the 2 sketch groups.. and if you don't know about them they are Let's Scrap Sketches and Feeling Sketchy and I didn't have time to scrapbook much. But now, with the help of the LOAD Challenge last month.. I'm up and running again!!! 

Sooooo here we go... this is for this weeks sketch at Let's Scrap Sketches!!!

Here is my work with the sketch:

 
I know... of course they are Yummy pics!!! I have stacks and stacks of Yummy pics to scrapbook... I'm thinking I haven't had alot going on other than this gorgeous lil grandson of mine.. not a hardship though... pure joy!! 

We take him to the fair every summer... this was August 2013 and he was so intent on eating his cookies while he was taking in all the sites and sounds of the fair... it was just too cute for me not to take alot of pics of... ;0) What a face!!!!

Here is the sketch I worked with designed by our ohhh sooo talented Michelle van Wyk

Great sketch right?? Oh the possibilities with this one... single page... double page... flip it... turn it... ohhhh I will be using this one over and over again I'm sure... 

Soooo you have until Midnight next Tuesday night to get your layout done and loaded for the prize draw.... I can't wait to see all the great entries for this challenge...!!

Load #20 & 21

Yummy loved my scraps of paper... I have a box under my desk and when Yummy would go home for the day the paper was spread from one end of the house to the other.. pieces here and there and some had been eaten.. Yummmm???

January 1st... the LOAD Challenge!!!

Happy New Year!! I hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Years Eve and are starting off the New Year right.... Me?? I'm starting by kicking off this LOAD (LayOut A Day) challenge.. if you want to join us it is never to late to start with us on our Scrapbooking LOAD Facebook Page

Sooooo I'm not one for New Years Resolutions but my 'goal' this year in scrapbooking is to use up some of my 'kits' parts and pieces I have left from layouts that are scattered about as well as using up some of these TONS of bits and pieces of scraps... I literally have boxes of them because I just 'can't' throw them away.. I might be able to use them somewhere... well that will be my goal this year!! lol

So hopefully I can get some more layouts done today but there are other things that I need to attend to as well... but I got 3 layouts done all using pieces that were left from Simple Stories 24/7 paper packs. Unfortunately I still have enough to do several more layouts... !! lol


Here they are...

#1
Daddo and Yummy cuddling on the couch and they both fell asleep... it was just to precious not to snap this photo and scrap it!! ;0)


#2
We will pull into the parking lot at Starbucks Yummy will say 'Grandma 'needs' coffee' and I will say laughing.. YES she does!!! He always gets an apple juice but truth be told I know he only wants the green straw.. it makes for an awesome sword when he is done with his drink.. ;0)


#3
Cindy and Dave went on a Mexican cruise and brought him back this cute little guitar with his name on it.... he LOVES this guitar... it is 'my tar' as Yummy says.. lol This was just way to adorable not to take pics of.. he is sooooo cool!!! ;0)


#4
Yummy blowing kisses and having fun... lol This kid kills me.. he fills his Grandma with so much joy. Love this kid to pieces!! 


Well back at it and hopefully I will get more layouts going today... I really want to make my 31+ layouts this month.. if feels really really good to get some scrapbooking done!! ;0)

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:

12-10-14

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:


12-3-14

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.... 

This was Father's Day at Craig and Jammie's.. ;0)

Challenge #2 at Let's Scrap Sketches

Hello!!! It's been awhile since I scrapbooked, other than getting kits ready so this felt a bit odd starting off again doing a BAM (book about me) layout... ;0)

This is for DT Bridgie's Challenge #2 at Let's Scrap Sketches

there were no rules other than doing a layout (or more) all about you!! Or, in this case, ME!!

Sooooo here is what I came up with:


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

Here is the sketch I worked with... I found it while surfing pinterest from 'Stick It Down'

So now I am off to post it to the Let's Scrap Sketches blog.... you still have a few days to play along with this challenge... let's see what you come up with!!!

Thanks for looking!!
