You + Me . . . for Challenge YOUrself!

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a layout that I made for the new theme at Challenge YOUrself.  For those of you who don't know, it's a challenge blog that asks you to create pages using photos with YOU in the frame!

This month's theme is "What I Like About Summer."

I know that my favorite part of summer is going to the beach.  We didn't have much money when I was growing up, but my parents always found a way to get us to the beach, even if it was just for the day.  We would pack a lunch and drive there, stay for the day, and eat part of our packed food for dinner, too.  We always had the best times because we would go with sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins!!

Here is the photo that I picked to use for my layout this month:
Anne took this one of John and me when we were at the beach in Atlantic City, NJ the summer of 2016.

And here is my completed page:

I used the Cocoa Vanilla Studio's "Midnight" collection to make my page.  I must say, I have used this kit numerous times, and still have paper and lots of embellishments left!

Here are some close-ups:

And a different view:

I hope you get a chance to check out Challenge YOUrself this month!  All of us on the design team would be so happy if you did!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  HUGS!!

Group Selfie . . . for Scrap the Boys!

It's the first of the month and time for a new challenge at Scrap the Boys!

This month's theme is a mood board challenge:

Isn't it cool?   

Also, Scrap the Boy's sponsor this month is Just Add Flair!  That means if you participate, you have a chance to win a pack of flairs!!!
Here is my take on the mood board challenge:

I used a selfie taken when we went to NYC last summer to see Frozen.  The selfie includes two boys, my nephews Owen and Logan, along with me, my 2 daughters, and my 2 sisters!

I also used this awesome digital image, printed it out, and fussy cut the photos for my background:

Here are some close-ups:

And a different view:

I hope you get a chance to check out the mood board challenge at Scrap the Boys this month!  

Thanks so much for your visit to my blog!  HUGS!!

A Mermaid and a Llama Scrapbook Page . . . for Scrap FX!

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing my two newest layouts that I made for Scrap FX using their new products!
To learn more, read on . . .

My first page has a mermaid theme!  This used this photo of Anne that I took at the Beach in Hilton Head Island back in 2004.  She was 2 years old at the time!! 

Here's my completed page featuring my little mermaid, Anne:

I used the following Scrap FX products:

Little Mermaid chipboard wordlet:

Coral B chipboard:
 Mermaid Corner chipboard:

Sea Scene Large chipboard:

Diamond stencil

 Art Words transparency:

Here are two close ups:

And a different view:

I wanted to demonstrate just how versatile Scrap FX products are by making a scrapbook page with a completely different look.

I had these fun photos taken at the Lehigh Valley Zoo back in 2014, so I decided to go with a Llama theme!

I fussy cut the photo of Anne.

Here are the photos of the Llama:

Isn't he cute?  Anne kept calling him weird!!!

Here is my completed page:

And here are the Scrap FX products that I used:

Whole Llama Fun chipboard set:
Wire Fence chipboard:

Cactus chipboard:

Are Words transparency:
As per Anne, I used the words "Stay Weird."

Cloud and rain stencil:
I traced the cloud and cut it out on white woven fabric.

Here are two close-ups:

And a different view:
