Lady Gaga!!!????

Ok...I have to admit I like a few of her songs but Lady Gaga in general creeps me out. Even so this week at scrap it with a song they used Lady Gaga's Just Dance. It ended up working perfectly for these pictures, and i was able to use the sketch at the scrappiest.

The paper is from My Minds Eye and imaginise
Letters and cut outs are K and Company

Pile it on GDT week 4

I have really enjoyed being a guest designer at Pile it on. The challenges have been so much fun. This week it is circles, circles and more circles. I love how this worked out. I was doing a class demo at Michaels and decided to combine the challenge with the demo and made rosettes for the 4th of July. I have a manager there that I love but she hates scrapbooking. When she saw these she actually said they were cute and ended up using them on her t-shirt display. I LOVE how it came out.

Working together

I used the sketch from My Sketch World. I turned it on its side and put my own style on it. Everything I used is stash.

This layout qualifies for:

SPCC: certainly celery, pumpkin pie, crumb cake


My Store Manager at Michaels offered me 2 more stores to teach scrapbooking at (as if I would say no). So Saturday I did demos at both stores. I got paid to sit at a table in the middle of the store and scrap book. I LOVE MY JOB!!!!! When I do this I just take stash and a single pack of pictures so I can be a little bit limited on what I can make. I do like to print off some sketch challenges to take with me and I am able to show people a little bit about making things our own. This one was done with the sketch from sketchy Thursdays. I used mostly my stash for everything.

This layout also qualifies for:

My sketch world: summer is here

Pile it on GDT week 3

This week at Pile It On the challenge is Show me some metal. I was thrilled to be able to use all my metal letters and large brads. I know this layout is simple but I really wanted my pictures to be focused on. This was one of the first times Tanner went down (or up) a slide. He kind of did it on his own. He is only about 18 months here and we didn't think he could make it the whole way up.

This Layout also qualifies for:
Sketchabilities: Sketch
Make it Monday: Anything Goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters: Any Project, Gift, Card, or Layout Celebrating The Man In Your Life
Bloggers Challenge: Masculine Card or Project
