Pure Bliss....

This weeks sketch at Let's Scrap is what I used on this layout..
I love this pic of My Adorable One and me... he is so Adorable!!

This is the sketch I used for this layout... I only used one side of it
because it worked with this pic... :0) 

Ok... So I twisted and turned it a bit... and then I took out
a couple of photos and added the title.. but you can see
how I used this sketch right?? That's what sketches are
all about.. turn them, tweak them and make them 
work for you!! :0) Love sketches!!

Live Love Laugh

I have used this quote before on layouts of me and My Adorable One..
He brings all these things and so many more to my life everyday!

This is the layout I did for Let's Scrap this week. 

Not my favorite 'layout' but I love the pics... yes we are
goofy but we are totally head over heals in love as well... ;0)

Here is the sketch that I worked with... I only used one side of it 
because it worked so well for my pics... and I flipped it too!! ;0)

If you want to play with this sketch and post it for our weekly
winner at Let's Scrap you can do it until Tuesday midnight... every
Wednesday they come out with a new sketch. You can use the sketches there
anytime and post them in the gallery too... come play with us!!

Let's Ride...

A very busy weekend here... I do one craft show a year and it was this 
past weekend. I am a serious procrastinator so I have been crazy busy
getting stuff ready for it over the past several weeks and all my scrapbooking
got put on hold... so today I got to play a little bit for one of the DT that I belong to 
and this is what I did... 

Let's Ride!! A pic that I love of My Adorable One and myself at Gunslinger Nationals 
in Oregon this past summer... a very simple layout but it was fun playing with the sketch 
from Nuts About Sketches .. so here is the layout...

when I scanned it the eyelets on the sides got cut off... and the paper
is silvery with skulls... so very cool!! ;0) 

Here is the great sketch that I got to play with...

If you haven't checked out Nuts About Sketches you should!!
Come on over and play with us!! ;0)

So starting over for the LOAD this month... this is #1 & #2

This is my challenge at Let's Scraps "Scrap Your Stash" Group..
the challenge is to use what you have in scrapbooking supplies and use up some
of your stash... you know we all have it!! I'll admit.. some more than others! ;0) 

Here is the layout.. this is from our Gunslinger Nationals in Oregon this past summer.. 
we went on a ride to the coast and it was beautiful and we ate at Moe's.. oh Yum!!!

Usually I would have this side by side in a double layout form.. but
I have a new computer with updated software and I'm not sure how to use
it yet!! lol I'll have to get The Adorable One to help me figure it out.. ;0) 

Here is the challenge part of this layout:

2 patterned papers
4 different colors of cardstock
10 eyelets or brads
10 die cuts/stickers - 
either from your stash or you can cut them with your machines
and some inking on the layouts

This is the sketch I used:

Come play along with us!!
