I love when the dresses match my papers perfectly!
I was so excited to finally use up these flowers too!

This moodboard from Scrap the Girls inspired me to pull out these gorgeous Homecoming pictures of my daughter and her friends:

I love when the dresses match my papers perfectly!
I was so excited to finally use up these flowers too!

I added some ribbon, gold foam leaves that matched the gold lettering. 
And the pretty flowers are from Prima.
These beautiful papers are from Maja Design - Denim and Girls collection!
So pretty!!!

I worked with this sketch from Let's Get Sketchy:

This was so fun and easy to work with.

I'm glad these pictures were a perfect match for the papers and the sketch!

Mello Moments

Just when I think I am almost done with band pictures - I run across a few more!

Thankfully, I have lots of sketches to work with that keep my inspired!

Here is the page I created using this fun sketch:

This background paper is actually white with silver polka dots.
It's really hard to get a good picture of shiny papers.
I found these sheets of vellum music note papers at Hobby Lobby - and will probably have to get more.

Thanks for stopping by!!


This girl certainly has "style" and loves to show it off!
Just love the sass in this photo!

I used a blue misting spray on my white background and added some blue sequins.
The blingy frame was hiding in the stash - but I knew I had it - I just had to find it!

I think the worst part of the stash is KNOWING you have the perfect embellishment, you have seen it a million times, but the moment you need it, it's no where to be found!
I have spent countless hours searching for items I know I have!
Luckily, I found it ...along with many other items I forgot I had - and will forget where they are when I need

I used this sketch - #407 - from Sketches in Thyme:

Race Day

Before I get burnt out on working with just one subject at a time, I like to dig thru the stash and find other pictures that have been "forgotten".

Working with this month's challenge from White with 1 - here is the color that I needed to use:

The hardest part was trying to find just the right pictures.  I would normally go straight for pool pics or the beach, but I don't have those printed yet!

I found these pictures from a 5K race a friend and I had completed a few years ago.

Once I found the pictures,  I had to make them work with the additional sketch challenge:

I love that I was able to play with some older patterned papers, doilies and misting sprays.

Now, I only have pics from about 10 other races we did!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Oh Happy Day!

How fun is it when a game can be incorporated into your favorite hobby! 
It's so fun and quite the challenge to play Bingo AND get a page done.
But, it sure makes you think!  And dig through your stash to find just the right combination of items to get that Bingo!

Here is the Bingo board from Scrap with Stacy:

I chose to work with the left side - Stickers, Dots and Hearts:

I used a punch for all of my hearts and some of them are glitter felt stickers.
I added some pink brads for my "dots.
And this random set of rose stickers worked very well for this page - use that stash!

Pre-game Performance

I am still working on lots of band pictures.  That's what happens when your daughter is in band for 4 years and you don't scrap any pictures at all!  They pile up!
And now that my goal is to finish up her school book before she graduates - I am so far behind!!!

Here is a fun sketch from Rochelle this month:

I love the circles!  And I just happen to have some pre-cut in the stash.  That's why I always save my "scraps".

I used a flower punch to make my musical flowers.

And a couple more pictures - done!

Birthday Page!

Hello there! While it snows off and on all day, I will be catching up on pages and posts.

Here is a page I made this morning using sketch # 194 from Sketch N Scrap:

Here is the original sketch:

The added challenge was to use circles, dots or polka dots.
I used a circle patterned paper and I guess my balloons are kinda
