Half Marathon - Feb Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Hop.

Hello and good morning...




Welcome to the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Hop.. You should have arrived here from Bonnie's blog.... After that you will be on your way over to  Teresa's blog... If you are lost, start off at Gloria's blog..

For my project I decided to scrap a layout using some older Simple Stories DIY papers that worked with the Wonder Woman colors on my tank tops (red, white, black and yellows). I scrapped one of what is probably my biggest athletic goals that I have accomplished and am very proud of- running a half marathon.


I used the Stuck Feb 1 sketch for my page. And fussy cut a few of the frames from the SS papers and added them on the page:


Popped on a bit of stitching and some misting, along with some enamel stars:


And added some journaling to my page of my experience:



So now you are off to the lovely Teresa to see what she has created this month...

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!

Arches.

Hello and good morning...

Happy Friday!!! I'm ready for the weekend, and this one is going to be packed with soccer, so I'm excited for it.

You should have arrived here from Sandy for the "Scrappin Our Stash" blog hop, if you have gotten lost you can start at LeeAnne's blog and work your way through.

I scrapped some photos from our summer trip, when we visited a few National Parks, one of which was Arches in Moab... and it was amazing.. Probably one of my fave National Parks to visit, plus lots of cool hiking.


I used some older Jillibean Soup, the Sightseeing Stew collection, which is perfect for travel and vacation pages
I added some stitching and misting:


And layers with a few of the sticker elements and tag cards:


I also used the Stuck 1/15 sketch for the layout.

So I'm the last stop of the hop.. thanks soo much for stopping by and have a great weekend!!!

Me & My Girls.

Hello and good morning...

Happy Thursday!! hope you've had a great week so far.

I'm sharing my reveal today up on the Sketches In Thyme blog for sketch #182. I printed both these photos from my instagram, both pics taken on different days and for different events. The top one is with my older daughter after her soccer game that I coach for, and the bottom one of me and my lil one at sushi lunch. I've been trying to get in the photos more with my kids, since I spent so long only behind the camera and not out there with them.


I used my Jan Scrapbook Circle kit and the Random Note challenge with the washi tape letters for my title work:



I also cut out a few of the squares from one of the patterned papers and added them instead of more photos:



Here is sketch 182:



Hope you get a chance to play along...

thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!

The kit is packed with Crate, MME and some AC papers, and of course tons of embellies!!! There is a bit of a LOVE theme in the kit going on, but also lots of blues for some boy card making too.

Hello and good morning...




Welcome to the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Hop.. You should have arrived here from Donna's blog.... After that you will be on your way over to  Teresa's blog... If you are lost, start off at Gloria's blog..



For this month's craft hoarders hop, I decided to dig deep into my stash and pull out the older Glitz Wild and Free collection. It was one of those ones I LOVED, I wanted to use, but didn't want to run out of it, so I hoarded my stash...

So I created this layout of my lil one, being her sassy lil self, and used the Jan 1 Stuck sketches for my layout.

 


  I added my title with some October Afternoon mini alphas, some of my faves.. and yes, I just might have a stash of those too.. LOL


I added two colors of misting splats, some wood pieces and some star stickers- from the elements sticker sheet for some background action:



Thanks sooo much for stopping by today and head over to Teresa's blog...
 
Hope you have a great day!!!!
