Found a new (to me) challenge called Scrap and Music – and their latest challenge is to scrap as a title the lyrics of the song Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys. This is a layout of my daughter Stephanie Pennington Clifton, using Bo Bunny Concord Dot paper and some scraps around the house from Daisy Bucket’s Posh Posies collection from a few years ago.
The 15 March 2014 sketch challenge is up at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge. And of course our 1 March challenge is still open to join in with. Come play along – we love new friends! You have until the end of March to play. The prompt challenge is to:
Scrap or art journal about a favourite song in from your teens. You can scrap some of the lyrics, or the title, or a photo of the band …
The sketch challenge is to interpret this sketch:
Here is my interpretation of it, featuring our daughter Jacqueline Pennington, and her best friend at the time, Kim Mountenay:

The latest Challenge theme at Once Upon a Sketch is The Journey. The sketch is, as usual – beautiful.
I journalled about a particular journey with my mother, but as part of the larger journey she and I walked after she was widowed. I was glad to be with her for that, and I have but one regret. That regret is that the depth of her love for me was not fully revealed to me until after her death. I knew she loved me deeply, but some things I did not know until I went through her belongings after her death. I so hope my love for her was fully revealed to her in this life and the next.
The paper line I used for my layout was Bo Bunny`s Serenade.
Time to sit down and post a couple of recent layouts that I created at Crop and Create Cornwall to enter into some of their layout competitions at the event. This one is using the new Bo Bunny line that I bought from my friend Laura at Sweet Sentiments at the event. The layout was for Scrapbooks and Cards Today’s “Something Old, New, Borrowed, Blue” competition. Unfortunately I didn’t read all the directions – as well as incorporating all the suggestions in the competition title – you also had to use the sketch provided … sigh …
Anyway – loving the new Bo Bunny Zip-A-Dee-Doodle – what a great name for a paper line!!!! This layout features my daughter Mary Pennington.

I used one of my favourite tricks of cutting the shaped and pics out of papers in the line to make my embellishments. After cutting out the flowers, shapes etc. that you want from the paper, add some ink around the edges to pop it or smooth out any ooopsies – add some pop dots to some of the new embellies for dimension – and you have an economical layout for the cost of a couple of sheets of paper!!!
Another layout is coming soon!!!
Our son Chris spent the summer as an Ontario Parks Ranger in Algonquin Park the year he turned 17. The whole summer with twenty-some guys his age travelling from lake to lake in their canoes doing whatever work needed doing at the interior campsites, building campsites, etc. By far the most inspiring and happiest experience of his young life.
We have our new sketch up at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge, and the sketch inspired me to do this layout using photos Chris had taken while he was a ranger and the Bo Bunny SunKissed line of paper and embellishments:
Come play along with us!!!
We were invited to a resort/hotel in Collingwood for a free weekend – well, free for those who would listen to their time share sales pitch. On our way home I insisted we drive over to Wasaga Beach to see what it was all about. I had heard of it for years. Well, it was miles and miles and miles of … beach … endless beach. Ok, so now I’ve seen Wasaga Beach. Lol!
Anyway, over at Once Upon a … Sketch, Nadia Cannizzo’s latest challenge is to scrap about a holiday using her latest sketch. I used Bo Bunny Sun Kissed Heat Wave Die Cut for this layout and I’m loving the bright colours!!
My son Chris Pennington was pretty happy to be a ranger at Kiosk camp in Algonquin Provincial Park last summer. They would set out most Mondays in their canoes, and canoe from lake to lake and build, clear, clean up, and do whatever needed to be done at the campsites along the way, returning Fridays to spend their weekends at the ranger camp at Kiosk. What a great summer, and what great friends he made along the way. I scrapped a few of his photo memories from that summer in this layout, using papers from the Bo Bunny Roughin’ It collection. This layout is for the latest challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous where they challenge participants to use up their scrapbooking stash. This month’s challenge is to use chipboard on our layouts. Here is my layout:
