The CIrcus is in town...

This layout is done with 'All About Boys' stack from DCWV. Everyone month, on their blog, they have a sketch challenge.. you use their sketch and one of their paper stacks. The pics that I used on this layout have a red shadow about them because of the playground equipment... this paper worked perfect for them!!

NSD Challenges...

I did these 4 layouts up for 'The ScrapRoom' Challenges .. I found them thru facebook!!

Challenge #1 - Using their sketch and a punch somewhere on the layout...

Challenge #2 - 'create a layout using patterned paper strips no wider than 2".  They can be as long as 12" but no wider than 2".   You can use cardstock of any size and any embellishments that you like, but the patterned paper has to be less than 2" wide' 
I used a Let's Scrap Sketch for this one... 

Challenge #3 - 'create a layout that has the word memory or memories'
this is an old DCWV sketch

Challenge #4 - 'create a layout with patterned paper from at least three different manufacturers'
 I used a sketch that I had filed under 'misc' not sure where I found it...

There is another challenge on The ScrapRoom... but I have so many other places I want to check out before the end of NSD...

Let's Scrap Challenge #6

This is Eniko's Challenge #6 thru Let's Scrap!!
"Welcome to an other awesome challenge! This one is in honor of National Scrapbooking Day, which is May 5th!
Scrapbookers are generally so busy photographing and scrapping their families, pets and special events that they themselves are often left out of photos and scrapbooks. Am I right, Ladies?
Since scrapbooking is such an important part of our lives and daily activities, it is only fitting to pay homage to our favorite passion on National Scrapbooking Day!
For this challenge, you must use the sketch below to create a layout about yourself scrapbooking! The challenge begins today, a few days before National Scrapbooking Day, to give you ample time to prepare by taking photos and rifling through your stash, so that you can actually work on it during our favorite Holiday!"

We had to include 8 of the elements below:
Alpha Stickers
Banners, Flags or Pennants
Brads or Eyelets
Flourishes or Scrolls
Metal Clip, Stick Pin, or Staples
Twine, Baker’s Twine, or Ribbon

Here is my layout for the challenge

Here is Eniko's sketch for this challenge:

love this sketch.. I'm already working on another layout using it... hopefully I can post it tomorrow.. :0)

Motorcycle Run...

Sacramento Law Enforcement Memorial Motorcycle Run 2011
This was a fun day.. 44 mile ride from Sac, along the Delta River to Isleton. But boy, oh boy was it a HOT one!! We all were wiped out from the heat by the time we got home. So all these pics with smiling faces soon faded... lol But a great cause... 

This layout was made with this weeks sketch from Let's Scrap... it just came out today...

if you want to see a larger image just click on the picture..

This is the sketch that I worked with...

Now back to scrapbooking... May is a busy month and I don't want to fall behind!!
