Wow – made a layout I love today for two exciting challenge blogs’ challenges for May.
Off the Rails Scrapbooking has a mood board for May and I LOVE it!
And the challenge over at Challenge YOUrself is to use the song “This One’s for the Girls” as your inspiration. I used the line “this one’s for all you girls” as an intro to some advice I would have liked to have given my 3 eldest daughters way back when. But they seem to live that advice anyway :).
Here is my layout using a photo of we four in Niagara Falls before I was actually part of their family. It is one of my happiest memories.
Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo is having a challenge to use tulle in your work this month. I used tulle as the fish net from which the fish are breaking loose from in this layout that features my daughters Stephanie Pennington Clifton and Mary Pennington. I used Bo Bunny and American Crafts Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go papers for this layout as well as Pebbles Chips and Jolees embellishments and Thickers Dear Lizzy font title.
Here is the layout:
We have the sketch challenge up at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge for April. You have until the end of the month to play along with it and our prompt challenge for April. Don’t be shy – we’d love to see you there!!!
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.
I haven’t been posting any of my class or kit layouts lately, but some of them are just too pretty not to share. Here are a couple of double page layouts designed by Vicki Boutin featuring my daughter Jacqueline Pennington and her fiance Greg Campbell:
Here’s a sweet layout designed by Kelly Goree, and featuring my daughters Mary, Jacqueline and Stephanie Pennington:
Excited to have the new challenge up at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – it’s a sketch this time around. Come on out and play along with us!!!!
Because I was looking for some more fun after playing along with AFSC’s sketch challenge, I decided to play the challenges at Scrap Around the World and Once Upon a Sketch this time around. I was inspired by the luscious colours of the mood board at Scrap Around the World , and especially by the chevrons!!! Those chevron colours just SPOKE to me!!
Here is the sketch at Once Upon a Sketch – and a lovely one (as always) it is:
The journalling for the OUAS challenge was to be around the theme of “totally addicted to” – my journalling reads:
You two are totally addicted to having fun together. I am totally addicted to the two of you.
The layout features my daughters Stephanie Pennington Clifton and Mary Pennington doing what they do together. I used Crate Paper The Pier Sunscreen for the background, Doodlebug Design Inc. Take Note, and Basic Grey True Love Giddy for the borders under the photo.
Our daughter Stephanie and Josh Clifton had a beautiful wedding last year, and I don’t think I’ve seen as much happiness displayed by a couple in a long time. I love making layouts of their special day, and recording the glow and joy I see on her face in those wedding photos.
This layout was made using the current sketch at Sketchabilities, and I found it a wonderful inspiration for the layout!!!
It was hard to finish this today, as part way through finishing it, a big (unrelated to the layout or photo) part of me that I have held inside for years, was crushed. Time to re-evaluate, as change often provides opportunity.
White With 1 has a challenge this month that is white, with pink, with hearts! In could not resist scrapping a gorgeous photo of our daughter Stephanie Pennington and her husband Josh Clifton for this challenge. I used the Love Struck Cricut cartridge for the titling and the heart and wings. My inked background patterns are made with Balzer Designs 6 x 6 templates and Ranger Distress Inks. Here’s my entry:
