You still have a few days to play along with both of the challenges at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge and also to apply for the DT. It’s always awesome to have old and new friends play along!!
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.
That’s what my four grandchildren are!! This layout is for 123 Challenge Blog and Sketchabilities, and the star of the layout is my eldest granddaughter – Brynn Zwanenburg. The challenge at 123 Challenge Blog is to use brights, the word “awesome” and arrows. The arrows I used are arrowheads. I flipped the sketch at Sketchabilities this time around:
Here’s my interpretation of both sketches using Fancy Pants Be You papers:
Don’t forget to come and play along with Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – we have a fun challenge on right now until the end of the month – and our sketch is coming on the 15th !!!
Come play the 1st April prompt challenge and the 15th April sketch challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge . You have until the end of the month to play along!!! Don’t be shy – we’d love to see you there!!!
Meanwhile I’ve been busy this long Easter weekend traipsing around the internet and checking out the challenge blogs. Off the Rails Scrapbooking has a lovely sketch that I flipped for this layout of my grandson Robert Campbell. I also incorporated their lovely colour pallete in the layout. Scraps and Pieces Emporium has the prompt Treasures – and babies sure are treasures – as my layout title attests!! Finally, Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo’s challenge is to feature an animal in the layout. I managed to incorporate all three challenges in this first layout of Robert ever! I used paper and rub-ons from Fancy Pants Little Sprout collection for this layout.
Hey – we have a new sketch challenge over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge … come on over to visit to play along! You’ll find the challenges amazing!!
I created this layout based on Once Upon A Sketch’s sketch for August. I flipped the sketch, and scrapped a photo of our daughter Stephanie Pennington with the Blue Jays mascot Ace during baseball season 2007. My journalling reads:
Since you were a little girl you’ve loved the Blue Jays!
and below the titling reads:
Baseball Season 2007
I used Fancy Pants About A boy Peace paper for the background and embellishments.
It’s the 15th of the month, so it’s time for another sketch challenge over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge … Head over to HERE to see the sketch and play along. The girls there are lovely, and they’ll make you very welcome!
My interpretation of the sketch features my daughter Mary Pennington while we were camping at Presqu’ile Provincial Park at the end of August 2010. I used Fancy Pants Celebrate Laugh and Make Merry papers and Celebrate Titles and Tags embellishments.
Over at another Freaking scrappy challenge … we have posted our 15th of the month sketch challenge. Using the sketch posted on the blog, the challenge is:
February 22nd is Baden Powell Day – Baden Powell was the founder of Boy Scouts, and his sister Agnes was the founder of Girl Guides. Scrap a memory of you in Scouting or Girl Guides (brownies, Sparks, Guides, etc.) or a memory of a group you belonged to when you were a child or teen. You may include a momento or journal a memory of what belonging meant to you.
Here is my layout for the challenge:
The children are my twin brother Gary and myself. We were very proud to be in Scouting and Guiding. I treasure the photos of he and I wherever I find them.
We are also hosting a blog hop over at another Freaking scrappy challenge … with an awesome prize at the end. You get another chance at the prize by playing this sketch challenge and the 1st of February challenge as well. Come play with us – you will love the design team and the challenges!!
Meanwhile – over at Scrapbookers Anonymous (that other AWESOME challenge blog with the lovely Lea and Theresa, they are continuing their mid-month alphabet challenge. This time I used Fancy Pants Designs Graph Star paper for the challenge and feature my son Chris. Come on over and play, the owners and design team are lovely encouraging people who will inspire you!!
