Play Ball- Scrappin Our Stash Blog Hop.

Hello and good morning...

Happy Friday!!!! yay for the weekend coming up, I don't know what happened this week, but I am soooo ready for the weekend to start....

You should have arrived her from the lovely Bobbi on the Use Your Stash blog hop....

Today I am sharing a layout with you using a realllly old Echo Park mini kit called Grand Slam from 2012!!! I didn't even realize I had it in my stash, till I started pulling out some old EP collection packs. Well I knew it was perfect since I had a stack full of baseball pics that were in need of being scrapped on my desk.

Since my son plays catcher and the home plate is his, I thought this quote was perfect to add:

I added some ink splats but they were taking forever to dry, so I dabbed this with tissue and created a blurred ink effect. Of course stars are always a great sports page accent:

I used the Feb 15 Stuck sketch for the layout.

Now you are off to check out what the talented Monica has created....

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful Friday!!!!

Love This Cute Face.

Hello and good morning....

Happy Tuesday!!! 
I'm up over on the My Scraps & more blog today.
Even though Valentine's is over, I am just completely obsessed with the Crate Kiss Kiss collection. Honestly, I am literally... always grabbing for this line!!! I want to just keep creating with it, and it works with almost any photo that I want to scrap too.

This photo is of my little one just being her silly, cute self. She loves this glasses that the older kids broke the lens out of... and this girl loves her ice water. I looked back while I was parked and couldn't resist a photo of her.

I layered little hearts down the side of the page and added just a pop of red to the page, keeping with mainly pinks:

I also used several of the Ephemera  pack embellies and loved the fun vellum arrow to add:

I know I am getting to the bottom of this collection and will be terribly sad when it's all used it.. so if you get the chance, there's a bit of it left in the My Scraps store, so snatch it up before I do...

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

Workout Sistas.

Hello and good morning...

I'm up over on the Got Moxxie blog today. 
One thing that I really enjoy it working out. My lil sister and I enjoy working out together, and used to when we lived in the same state. But now that we live in different states, we chat about it and actually got the chance to go to the gym together while she was visiting over the Christmas break. We took a moment for a "sweaty selfie" after the class and the Fun Run line was perfect to scrap the photo with.

I added some journaling from the cutouts paper about how she got me going back to the gym about 6 years ago and what an impact it had and my life and I'm still going strong.

I also took the triangle banner stickers and used them as triangles and added some stitching for fun:

And then staggered strip sized on the top to mix it up:

So have fun, play with bold colors and scrap those selfies!!!

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

Hello and good morning...

Happy Monday!!! hope you all had a great weekend.. I did and as always it was too short, and I'm already for next weekend...

Up on the Let's Get Sketchy blog is the latest sketch for week #4 to play along with.. Talk about crazy.. February is already ending, it's going by too fast.

I scrapped this photo of my lil guy at my son's baseball game. She went off to play by herself so I grabbed the camera and took a few photos of her.

I decided to go with triangles on the page and mixed in a bit of gold:

I also added a large sewn triangle behind the photo:

Here is the sketch:

Hope you get a chance to play along...

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

Santa Baby.

Hello and good morning..

Happy Friday!!!! I'm seriously ready for the weekend!! ours is pretty jammed packed, but that's ok, I'm ready for it!!

Up on the My Scraps & More sketch blog is the latest sketch to play with for the month of Feb.

I scrapped this photo of my lil on on Christmas Eve in her new Christmas pjs. We called her Little Santa. I used some of the Jillibean Soup Christmas line for it, along with some Simple Stories Christmas embellies.

I added some gesso on the page to tone down the brighter papers and added some embellies down the side of the photo:

Along with lots of strips down both sides:

Here's the sketch:

Hope you get the chance to play along, I'd love to see what you do with it!!!
