26th February - You

Today's Challenge is ....

Youcreate a layout about you, anyway you want to, its up to you, as long as it's about you!

Here are the DTs take on it...

I bought flowers for my little brother for his wedding a few days ago. I love these flowers very much so I took a few photos with them as I wanted to catch this moment! It's me!

My brother-in-law took this photo of me for my Designer of the Month feature in the April 2012 issue of CARDS Magazine.  It was such a high-point for me, and I'm thrilled to finally have my feelings about it on paper.

I really am not a fan of scrapping me so being challenged to do so is great so I actually end up in some albums. I have used the lovely new Echo Park collection Just Be YOU! Thank you for stopping by and we can't see what you create!

I took this selfie as we entered the great state of Texas back in July 2014 when we relocated from WA state to TX. Ironically, just after I s this elected this photo for the challenge, we found out that we will be moving from Texas to Kentucky in early April. I can only hope that our new adventure in KY will be as wonderful as TX has been for us. 

As a scrapbooker isn't it a fact that we are always behind the camera lens and rarely in a photo?  And it's even more rare that we scrapbook about ourselves?  With that being said, I sure hope you all take advantage of this challenge and finally scrap about yourself!  One known fact about myself is... I love being Grammie and I'll take every chance I can get to show it off!

I'm guessing you are like the rest of us and don't like to scrap about yourself. It's probably rare you are even in the photo. Try going back in time to a younger version of you. This is me, twenty years ago feeding a baby wallaby. This is actually one of my favorite pictures of me.

The photo is of me and my hubby with new helmets in 2007.

I hope all these lovely layouts have inspired you to scrap about yourself, we would love to see your layouts. You have until 12th March.

12th February - Sketch

Morning, friends!  We've got our first February challenge, for you all, this morning.  Anna has cooked up a playful sketch, based upon Vivian's take on last month's Mood Board Challenge, for you all.

Here's how the Design Team was inspired...

We would like to introduce a new member to the design team, Hannah Zheng.  I think her layouts will be a great asset to the team.  Here's her first DT layout...

I love this sketch!  To represent Valentine's this month I used a photo of my husband and I, we were celebrating our wedding anniversary so on this layout I used lots hearts to represent it.

Loved this sketch for its layers and embellishment clusters! I have used Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection which is so pretty. We do hope you will play along and we look forward to seeing all your creations!

I loved this sketch! I used a Felicity Jane kit to create this page of my daughter, Skylar and myself enjoying our first TX Summer by the pool.

Creating with a sketch is so fun and such a great starting point.  I've had these little bags laying around in my scrappy stash forever!  I felt this was a great opportunity to use them up.  

Since the sketch was based on one of my previous layouts, I found it easy to do!! I have already used "Dear Santa, Define Good" on another layout. So this time I used "Define Naughty". Goes with the photo pretty well too!!

The photo is of my two boys while they are fishing.....Daniel waits for the fish to bits.....Summer 2007.  I have used stencil and different colors with Distress Ink.
You have until Sunday, March 12, 2017, to link up your takes in the right-hand column.  We can't wait to see what you all cook up!  Have fun!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful work week!
