Hakuna Matata

I'm back with another NSD layout!  I created this one for a challenge over at Disney Scrappers.

The challenge was called a sketch and a song.  The sketch was this one by the amazingly talented Susan Stringfellow.

My layout is my little Marissa with Timon in Disneyworld.  She loved getting all the characters autographs.  In order to preserve them I typically scan them and them print them right out onto an element on my layout.

This was so much fun and really got my creative juices flowing.   I don't know why I don't use sketches more often!

I am hoping to get more challenges done before the May 12 deadline.

Thanks for looking!

Grandpa's Treehouse

I don't know what it is about Grandpa's treehouse. Maybe that is doesn't have railings and feels a little dangerous, maybe that it is in an actual tree.  I don't know, but it definately attracts my boy.  We have a skyfort at home, but it just isn't the same.  He can't wait to climb up into grandpa's treehouse.

I created this layout using mostly Woodland Park from October Afternoon.  I used the February sketch from Scrapbook Generation shown here

Thanks for looking!

What I've been up to...

Hello everyone! (If there is anyone still there!)

I know it has been a long time since I posted.  I have still been scrapping and have a backlog of layouts to post.  The truth is, I have just been to busy (read: lazy) to post on my blog.  Life has been flying by me.  My kids are growing up and need to be run to ump-teen different sports at all hours of the day and I have actually been working out religiously and lost some weight. yay me!  So anyway, enough apologies, on with the layouts.

Here are a couple I just posted to some NSD Challenges

Life is Better at the Beach

I absolutely love this Uncharted Waters line by Glitz.  When I saw it I knew I had to have it! These photos were taken from our New Year's vacation to Great Exuma in the Bahams.  It was a beautiful island, as you can see!
 Fly and Soar

I used mostly October afternoon on this layout.  The Balloons and Sun are stamps and inks from Close to My Heart.

Thanks for checking out my blog, I promise to try to post a little more often :)
