2 in 1 week

Wow!!! I am loving this!!!!! I had a ton of fun making this layout. This weeks song at Scrapping the music is Who Says by Selena Gomez. I have to admit I love this song, but I wouldn't be me if I didn't try to take a unique look at the song. At first I went through all my pictures trying to "feel the sap". Then I read the lyrics and saw the line..."Who says you’re not presidential?" I remembered seeing this picture of a project my little sister did at school umpteen gazillion years ago.Then I went online in search of pictures of the real Bush from 1988. This weeks sketchabilities sketch ended up being perfect.

Details: All of the patterned paper is from my Minds Eye (different pads)
             All of the die cuts are by K&Company

Im Back

I have been away for far too long. I have been teach so many people how to scrap book that I have not been able to do it for myself. Well Guess what!!!!! I made a layout for myself yesterday for some challenges. I am super excited. I will have to warn you that my computer did crap out a few weeks ago and I got a new one that has windows live and I am trying it for the first time. We will see how this works.

I used the layout sketch from Creative Scrappers. Then I was able to use ScrapFit’s challenge. They wanted you to be inspired by the Pat Benatar song Love is a Battlefield. As you can see I chose the line “help me to know”. I used these adorable pictures of my now 13 year old son with my Dad. They were outside of my parents house and my father was trying to teach Trey how to blow bubbles. I am pretty happy with how it came out.
