We Are Silly Layout

I used the Pinspire Me Challenge at Paper Issues to get this layout together. It took FOREVER to go through my pictures to find three with the right colours and similar subject matter. Then it took FOREVER to go through my stash to find the right papers, etc. However, I really like how it turned out so all is good. I considered doing paint streaks in the background but chickened out. The pictures are me eating a ring pop which is a favourite lake treat. My daughter going in to bite a marshmallow and my nephew being cute.

Here is the mood board. I think it's obvious how it inspired me!
Supplies
Recollections - Basics Bold paper
Recollections and My Mind's Eye enamel dots
Bella Blvd chipboard and stickers
MAMBI planner stickers stars
White cardstock
Black fine tip Sharpie pen

Aventure Explore Wander Layout

I finally got a layout done with the Creekside collection! It has frustrated me to no end but I got it to work. I love every paper in this collection so it has been annoying to be unable to use it. How fun that I could match up the trees with the background paper?
I played along with the Take 5 challenge at Paper Issues. I used patterned paper, blue, clouds, flowers, die cuts and stickers.
Supplies
One Canoe Two - Creekside
Black fine tip Sharpie pen
Brown embroidery thread

Climber Layout for Sketches In Thyme

Slowly getting these vacation pictures into the album. This week's Sketches In Thyme sketch has spots for three pictures which is great for getting them scrapped faster!
Here is the sketch:
I had only scraps of paper left of the ones I wanted to use, so I modified the sketch to work with this. It felt like it was missing something so I added the knotted embroidery thread at the end to look like the ropes and also outline a mountain.
Supplies
Pink Paislee - Turn the Page, Fancy Free, Take Me Away & Oh My Heart
White embroidery thread

Celebrating Finley for S.I.T.

It's been awhile since I've posted as I'm in my busy season at work. But it's nice taking a break and making a layout. This week has a really neat sketch at Sketches In Thyme. I struggle sometimes to get multiple photos on a page but this sketch made it so easy. You also can't go wrong with photos of a baby eating birthday cake.
Here is the sketch:

Pattern Talk Layout for S.I.T.

Hello everyone! I've made a layout from one of our summer vacations. We went to the Science Center in Wisconsin Dells and had a fun time checking out all the stations. It was definitely low key compared to a big city but perfect for my daughter's age group.
Here is the sketch. Go check it out and play along at Sketches In Thyme!
Supplies
Pink Paislee: Turn The Page
Heidi Swapp sticker
Black fine tip Sharpie pen
