Dreaming of Ireland

Just booked our flight home to Ireland for mid May.  Can’t wait to see my family again.  Here’s a page from last summer when we went hiking.

It’s inspired by the three challenges at Scrappy Friends

Brenda’s sketch – I rotated the sketch


Rochelle’s tictactoe

I used the middle row; triangles, green and journaling strips


and Kelly’s color challenge – I used the red, lime green, teal and wood colors


marvelous journey

Let’s Capture Our Memories Sketch #113 Reveal

I’ve always loved Beck Fleck’s sketches and LCOM sketch #113 was no exception – I rotated it 90 degrees

Lauren seems to gradually be taking over our living room – more and more of her stuff is appearing and staying – she pretty much lives in this spot when she’s home

Scrap Our Stash February Sketch 23

Scrap Our Stash February challenge was a fun sketch and color combo.  I mainly used white, red and pink in my page with some blue twine and a touch of green around the white hearts in the heart paper

Scrappy Friends Challenge

once in a while I get an urge to step outside my comfort zone and try a more shabby page.  Then I do it and think “meh, why did I do that”  I really prefer my more modern pages. Anyway, this is one of those.

I created it for the Scrappy Friends Challenge

Rochelle’s Tic Tac Toe


I used the middle line: pearls (in center of handmade flower), love theme and flowers

It’s also based on Brenda’s sketch – loosely – since I had scribbled it down and missed some of the detail


and I used the word “love” from
Kelly;s challenge


The page contains Lauren’s poem about her cat Bean

CSI Case 154

I loved the colors for the CSI Case #154 and decided to create a page about Nathan’s college options – so many possibilities

jnlg reads,”Nathan is a thinker with a sharp mind, very practical, always searching for answers.He is sociable and loves to talk and argue (debate). We thought he would make a great engineer, following in Dan and my footsteps, studying locally in Fairbanks. Now that he’s at the point of making decisions, Nathan is having to consider his priorities, desires, options, weighing costs. Should he explore other ares in the U.S.? What activities are there in those areas? What would be the best subject to study? Will there be a job at the end? No matter what he desides, Nathan is capable, resourceful and flexible and will do well.”

let’s Capture Our Memories Sketch Reveal #111

Emma’s sketches are always so fun to play with. For LCOM sketch #111 I mixed two different styles – the softer more shabby side (flower woodgrain paper and flowers) with a modern fresh look with the wall paper and stitched hearts.
