There is a really fun challenge over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge this month – and we already have a few girls playing along! The challenge is to:
Use paper or embellishments you have had in your stash for a long time or you can scrap about something you have you have had for a long time. You can use one prompt or both – up to you!
The paper I used for this layout of my grandson Kieran Zwanenburg is from K and Company and I have had it in my stash for several years. I used to design for Scrapbookers Anonymous where Theresa Gillman and Lea Patterson encouraged their followers to use up supplies from their stash, instead of always buying new supplies. I always try to use up something old with every layout ever since I met Theresa and Lea. They have made a lasting impression on me!
We have an awesome challenge over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – come see what it is all about!!!!
The challenge is BLUE – Scrap, art journal or create a card, mixed media with the colour blue – or journal about a time you were blue (sad). Choose either – or incorporate both in your work!!
Here’s a sample with my youngest grandson, Robert Campbell – he such a little cutie he could take away anyone’s blues!!!

Loving the mood board over at Off the Rails Scrapbooking – just couldn’t wait to do my own layout based on the colours!! Loving the papers from Fancy Pants Designs Inc. Trend Setter line of papers. The model is my beautiful mother Mary Wride (Marie Allain) back in the late 50s, early 60s. I sure do wish she could just call me – miss her dearly.

Just love Sketch 119 over at Sketchabilities, and love the photos I’ve used of my son Chris Pennington and his friend Mitchell Van Oosten at Northern Lodge on 10 August 2005 (Chris’ twelfth birthday). Here is my layout based on the sketch, using Sassafrass’ Monstrocity paper line:

Let’s Get Sketchy’s July Week 2 Sketch is awesome. I mixed it up a bit to accomodate the paper I was using, but kept fairly true to the sketch. My layout features my youngest grandson Robert Campbell on his first visit to us while we camped at Presqu’ile Park. I used Sassafrass Monstrocity paper line for my layout:
