We have an awesome challenge over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge – come see what it is all about!!!!
Loving the sketch over at Stuck Sketches this month :). Here is my take on it, featuring my youngest grandson Robert Campbell:
Come play along the last few days for both of the challenges at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge. It’s always awesome to have old and new friends play along!! We also have a DT challenge, and we’d love to see your work!!!
I finally got a chance to play along with Stuck?! sketches and loved the boxed in look of the July 1 sketch this month. Instead of triangles, I used strips to create the look I wanted for my layout of my grandson Kieran Zwanenburg. I used Sassafrass Monstrocity paper for the layout.
Just back from the academic awards at our daughter Mary Pennington`s school where she was one of the top 100 students in the school for her work last year, as well as the recipient of the Science (Environment) award for grade 11. So, so proud of her, and our other 4 children!! We are so lucky that we have been invited to this event on behalf of our children`s work several times over the years. We both remarked that this is the first year that they addressed all the talented students in an efficient manner. And because this event only honours grades 9 through 11 students, and that Mary is our youngest child, this is our last time we attend the event. It was a pleasant length, and all students were suitably honoured.
And speaking of Mary …
Scrap Around the World and Stuck Sketches challenges are inspirations for my latest layout that features Mary.
The mood board at Scrap Around the World had some blue, yellow and green – which prompted me to use Studio Calico`s Sassafrass Take Note collection for my layout of Mary participating in the go-cart race in Frankford when she was likely in fourth grade or thereabouts. (Just wish I could find the digital photo in my archive and check the date on the camera) …
The sketch at Stuck Sketches helped me pull together the colours from the mood board and the papers to make a bold layout that does justice to the attitude in the photo and the style of the collection. I’m happy with it, and hope you enjoy it!!
We have a new challenge over at another Freaking scrappy challenge … and it is to scrap a treasured Thanksgiving memory for you, DO NOT USE THE COLOUR ORANGE anywhere in the layout. Ha ha!! If you do not celebrate Thanksgiving – how about scrapping what you are thankful for, or why not scrap a family reunion or gathering????
The photos of my layout look quite orange – but I’ve used Sassafrass Paper Crush, and the papers are a golden yellow.
I am grateful for my children. Since I was a child myself, I always wanted to have 6 children, I am blessed with 5!!!
Here is my layout for the challenge:
And over at Stuck Sketches they have added a new sketch for December. Here is my take on the sketch, again using Sassafrass Paper Crush papers:
My daughter Stephanie and her best friend Sheranda have been known as Snuppie and Goober since high school – or for short, Snup and Goob. My aunt Cara and I met up with them last fall in Toronto and took a few pictures of them while we ate lunch. I decided to scrap the best of the photos for a challenge that is taking place at Stuck?! Sketches! and at the Jenni Bowlin Studio blog (JBS Mercantile). Stuck?! Sketches! provided a sketch for the challenge, and JBS asked that those accepting their challenge use a grid in their layout. So glad that I could combine the two challenges in this layout!!!
Here is Stuck?! Sketches! sketch:
Here is my interpretation of it using Bo Bunny Decaf Dot with a My Little Shoebox diecut paper, Jenni Bowlin Brown Label Strip Stickers for journalling, and Fancy Pants Daydreams rub-ons:
