I finally got started on my scrapbook for our cruise we took this past may with the family. I made a digi one for my mom but decided to do a paper one for me. For this page I used the SassyLilSketches Jan. 21st sketch, I also did this page for the ScrapChicks 1.21 Hen Party Challenge (Quotable)
Here's the SLS sketch I used, it can be found HERE, and you can find the ScrapChick Hen Party Challenge HERE, COME PLAY ALONG BOTH PLACES! Some amazing prizes are up for grabs on the Sassy blog!
Here is what I did with it ...
And a close-up of the journaling and other pictures that are hidden away
I used this card for many purposes, I killed a bunch of stones with it! I did it for the color challenge for the Hen Housewarming Party over at ScrapChicks, I also used the Jan. 14th sketch from SassyLilSketches AND I did it with mostly scraps to go towards my "Card Scraps" Goal over at Sassy! Phew! That's alot of uses!
For some reason the colors are a little off on this when I photo'd it, probably the crappy lighting in my scrap room, sorry! It's red, black, white, a baby blue/teal and orange. The only part that's orange is the outside part of the big flower, not sure what happened with the rest of it, why it's so orange looking. I tried to edit it but it only got worse!
Yet another AMAZING sketch by Cherie over at Sassy Lil Sketches! I absolutely loved this sketch when I saw it but I had a FIT with it! I had several issues putting it together and I still don't LOVE it, but I'm ok with it.
It's a FREE year long class to help you put together an album about the special place in your heart that you call Home. You will record the things you see, the places you go regularly. What a great thing to show your kids when they're older to show them the history behind the house they grew up in.
Everyone should come play along in this class!! I started a separate page here on my blog to document the journey! Make sure to keep checking back to see my new posts!
I saw this ADORABLE card on kwerner's blog the other day and just fell in love with it and knew I had to try it out for myself! She even provided a video on how to assemble it and some cutting files for either your silhouette or cricut, and for those of you who DONT have one of those machines she provided a template for you to cut it all out yourself.
I have been sitting here for a few days wracking my brain trying to come up with my One Little Word for 2011. For those of you who are unaware what One Little Word is here is a brief description: a word that you can focus on, mediate on, and reflect upon as you go about your daily life.It can be something tangible or intangible. It could be a thought or a feeling or an emotion. It can be singular or plural. The key is to find something that has personal meaning for you. One little word can have big meaning in your life if you allow yourself to be open to the possibilities.
So I've decided to do it this year, and I've been thinking about my word for over a week now trying to come up with the perfect word for me. I have come up with Motivation. I need to find more of it in my life, more motivation to exercise, scrap, better my marriage, start a family, everything I just need better motivation in my life to accomplish things and better myself. So there it is, I said it and it's now in writing so I'm bound to it.
From the minute I layed my eye this amazing sketch by Cherie for the Dec. 28th sketch over at Sassy Lil Sketches I was in love. I had so much fun working this layout. Come play along we're playing for some AMAZING prizes from these awesome sponsors.
Oh my gosh! I just can't believe it! I already fulfilled a scrappy goal and the year has barely begun! I have always wanted to be on a Design Team and I finally made it. I am now a Design Team member for cards over at Sassy Lil Sketches. If for some reason you haven't heard of them you NEED to go check them out! They have a blog and a brand new forum that is full of scrappy inspiration and fun! I've made a ton of new friends from all over the world and I'm addicted already!! Hope to see some new faces over there! If you join the forum, make sure to stop by HERE and tell them that I (Jamie) sent you over!! :)
