Sweet Peach Sketch

With everything going on right now I am so thankful that I have scrap booking to help me decompress. I did this layout of Tanner last night. I used the sketch from Sweet Peach Crop Shop Blog. I don't like my hand writing but I am right now having a new understanding of what kids treasure when a parent passes (or in my hubby's passing) so I decided to hand write the journaling instead of printing it out from my computer.

The pattern paper is again from My Minds Eye Totally Boy stack
The lettering is K & Comp: Girl scouts chip board letters
The square jems are from Michaels dollar spot
Everything else is from my stash

Sketchy Thursday Layout

I love these pictures of Tanner. He had this thing with climbing on the shelf under the bird's cage. Then he would call to me "I hiding Mommy". He always made me giggle when he did it. I used the sketch over at Sketchy Thursday. It is for a 2 pager but I kind of meshed them together into a single page layout. I really like how it came out. I used some stuff from a Little Black Dress monthly kit that I had won. Some K & Comp stickers and sayings. The title letters are from heidi grace ($1.00 at big lots). All the paper is from Totally Boy by My Minds Eye (my new favorite paper pad ever). I love my new desk that hubby made me! I can find everything. I will have to post some pics.

scrapping the music: Dream Big

I think I might have a new favorite song. I am loving this weeks song over at Scrapping the music. It is called Dream Big by Ryan Shupe & The RubberBand. I have never heard of them but this song is amazing (if your sappy like me). I ended up using some of the words as my journaling and they are perfect for what I want for my boys. I also used sketch #3 from Artful Delight.

All the paper is from Totally Boy by My Minds Eye
Font is Boyz R Groz (my new fave) cut with SCAL
Everything else is from my stash

National Scrap book Day

My birthday is tomorrow and I asked hubby if I could have a crop day at our house for my birthday. I am so lucky he said yes. It just happened that I had it on National Scrapbook Day. I found this sketch from Let's Capture These Sketches and started my layout. It took me until this morning to finish it though. The basic idea was there but I didnt know where I wanted to go with it. Even the title is different then it started out to be. I used these pictures of Tobin and Tanner when we stayed at Bay Lake Towers at Disney World. We were able to go after the hotel had only been built for a month.

All the paper is from Me and my big ideas Fashion district
The circle was punched with Martha Stewarts punch around the page deco fan
Font is boyz are gross
I used the part that comes off of my fiskars border punch (does that make sense?)

This layout also qualifies for:
Challenge up your life: Travel Related (this was taken at Disney World)

Polly Craft Monday: Boyz to Men
Frosted Designs: Border punch

Lay out remake

I know....I fell off the earth. I have been so busy working 6 days a week and hubby and I have been taking cake decorating classes at Michaels. Not to mention mothers day coming up, my birthday, Tobin's 5th bday, Easter and life in general.

For Christmas I framed a layout I had made of my son's father that had passed away the year before and gave it to his best friend. My sons aunt saw it and asked if I could make her one with her pics. I changed it around some but I think it came out well too. I just wanted to show it off.
