Monochomatic Layout

This summer is just flying by so fast! It's time for another Thursday sketch challenge at Chicas Gettin Crafty. This weeks layout:

So this is my layout.  I know, its a pumpkin carving layout in August, but I have always wanted to scrap this picture of the Dachshund I carved into this pumpkin, but I just never had a layout in mind.  I also did this layout as a monochromatic layout with just a few punches of black to make the different shades of orange 'pop.'

August Wedding Challenge

Hey Everyone! Hope you are having a great summer! For the wedding challenge at Chics Gettin Crafty, I did a layout of my family during my sister's wedding in 2004. The day started out with a trip to the hair salon to get our hair done. The second picture is of my family after the wedding ceremony. The first picture on the bottom left is my sister and her husband at the gift opening the day after the wedding. The middle picture is of my parents dancing at the reception. Of course I had to include a picture of the cake, because my Mom made the beautiful cake!! It was a great day for a wedding!

July 28th Sketch

Wow I can't believe its almost the end of July already! Where did the summer go?  Well today is Thursday, so that means its time for the Lets Get Peachy weekly sketch!  So here is the sketch this week:
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!! Well like most people, I love ice cream. I will eat just about any kind of ice cream with toppings on it. The dogs also love ice cream. We either buy them their own 'doggie' ice cream or they eat the ice cream right off of our spoon. They also enjoy licking out the bowl! Thanks for looking!

July 21st Sketch

This is the July 21st Sketch at Lets Get Peachy! Make sure you visit Lets Get Peachy to do your take of the sketch!

 This layout is my anti-boredom layout. Now I know you are asking, how is this an anti boredom layout, but let me explain. My 2 dogs are always running around doing something entertaining or playing with each other. This is one of those moments when they were resting next to each other in the chair, looking so cute. So even when they are laying in the chair together, they always have a way of making your day brighter by the little looks that they give or the way that they lay next to each other, as they are doing in these pictures. I just have to look at them, and my day is lifted. Thanks for looking!

July Recipe Challenge

The July Challenge for Let's Get Peachy was to use as many 'ingredients' from the scraping recipe. 
This challenge was a lot of fun to do! I was able to use 7 of the recipe 'ingredients' on my layout. This is a picture taken in 2004, I believe, of my Mom, me, and my 2 sisters, Erin & Emily. We all bought identical purses with our initials on them. The 'ingredients' that I used are: ink, buttons, distressing (around the edges) a punch, flowers, ribbon, & fussy cutting (2 banners).

Strawberry picking

Brad and I went strawberry picking on July 3rd.  It was one of the last day of the season!  The berries were smaller this year because of all the rain we had this spring, but they still were good!  I decided to make a strawberry pie, freezer jam, and strawberry shortcake!  Everything tasted good!!!

Let's Ride! Riding season is right around the corner and boy I can't wait for warmer weather so Brad and I can ride again. So I've been scrapping a lot of riding pictures right now to get our Harley album caught up again.

"Smile Challenge"

Hey Everyone!!

For the smile challenge on Lets Get Peachy, I scrapped a picture of my future mother in law, sister in law and I, getting ready for the first official ride of the 2010 riding season, which is the reason for the big smiles! The weather was perfect for a ride, hot, sunny, and a lot of Harleys! This is what the journaling said: "May, 29, 2010, was the first official ride of the season, which is why we are all smiling. It was a beautiful, hot, sunny day filled with a lot of Harleys! We were also riding to pay tribute to all Veterans who have served this country, so that we can be free!"

Lets Get Peachy Sketch

Here is my take on the Lets Get Peachy June 9th Sketch

This is a layout of Tinker, with one of her first dog toys that she ever had. She loved this toy so much and played with it a lot. This picture happens to be one of many where she was posing (by herself) with her 'Izzy.' The reason why the title is 'Tinker Toy' is because that's how we came up with her name. She was a small little pup when we first saw her, small like a toy, so she was named Tinker.
