This week has been a busy one for me over at Club Creating Keepsakes. It started off when I was notified that two of my recent layouts were chosen as Gallery Highlights. You can view them here. I really loved those layouts!!
In other CK news, I have to post my Issue Challenge entries for the last 3 challenges. I got a little behind with this! So, this challenge (#2)was to use a camera embellishment on the layout. I had these photos of Macie sitting on my desk and they almost got lost in the mess there. Luckily, I found them and was able to get her first day of school layout completed using Amy Tangerine’s Sketchbook papers.
Supplies used-Patterned paper, die cuts, sticker,alphas, fabric tags: American Crafts; Pen: K&Co; Cardstock: DCWV
Next up is Issue Challenge #3-to use numbers on your layout. As most of you know, I have a huge family. 🙂 Every time we are all together and go eat it’s always “Party of 7?!” We are a big, loud, fun (mostly LOL) family. My oldest daughter always laughs when she comes home from college because it’s “so loud and crazy” at home! I think she’s gotten way too used to the silence of her dorm, so we make sure to give her a good dose of crazy when she comes home :). Anyway, here is my layout that I am putting in MY book, with a little note about our chaos (once again using those Amy Tangerine Sketchbook papers) Journaling reads: “So we have a big family…but you know what? I wouldn’t change a thing! We all get along for the most part. I couldn’t imagine my life without the chaos we endure every day. That is what makes a house a home and our family unique. We will always have each other-I love my big family:)”:
Supplies used-Patterned paper, fabric tag, alphas, sticker: American Crafts; Punch: Creative Memories; Pen: K&Co; stickers: Recollections
Issue Challenge #4 has us using paper airplanes on a layout. The night before this challenge came out I had been working on a project, and it was almost done, but I felt like it needed a little something else. When I saw the challenge I knew it was the exact thing I needed to add. So I did. It’s not a traditional layout. I am using Heidi Swapp’s memory files to document our summer vacation. I plan on doing another separate post on that fabulous-ness when I am done with my project :).
Supplies used-Heidi Swapp Memory File folders, trims, and banner; Washi Tape: K&Co, 7 Gypsies; Sticker: Crate Paper; Punch: Fiskars; Pen: Pitt; Font: MS Courier New; Spray Mist: Smooch; Stencil: Crafters Workshop
And there you have it! Sorry about the long post, but I needed to get caught up 🙂 Stay tuned later this week for my Frosted Designs DT reveal and Challenge Me Happy DT reveal….

Hi everyone! Well this Friday marks my return to the DT of Frosted Designs. Yay! After Weston was born things got a little hectic, so I took a little time to get back on track. It’s so nice that the kids are back in school and we are on a routine again. This means a little extra scrappy time for me while Mr. Baby is napping 🙂
This week’s challenge involves using journal cards. I had these mini cards that came in the pack of Amy Tangerine’s Sketchbook die cuts. I used them in the little cluster next to the picture, and actually did my journaling on one of them.
Supplies used-Patterned paper: American Crafts; Die cuts and journal tags: American Crafts; Washi tape: K&Co, Up and Up, Spray Ink: Mister Huey; Stickers: StickO; Pen: American Crafts
If you would like to participate in this week’s challenge at Frosted Designs, simply create a layout or project using journal tags and link it up on their site for a chance to win a prize. I can’t wait to see your creations!
P.S.-I also would like to take a moment to congratulate my oldest daughter, Ashley. Today she is receiving her Aggie Ring (from Texas A&M). She will be graduating this spring with a major in Animal Science. I am so proud of her!! Be on the lookout for a layout about this momentous occasion soon 🙂 Have a great weekend!

Just stopping in quickly to share my layout this week. My first layout is doing double duty. It is for the Issue Challenge at Club CK (use a clock) as well as Let’s Get Sketchy. I loved their sketch this week! This layout was also kind of a personal challenge to myself to use up old stuff in my stash. I’m really making an effort to do this more often. I have an obscene amount of paper LOL
Supplies used: Patterned paper-unknown from stash, maybe Basic Grey? and Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby; Stickers: unknown from stash, K& Co.; Alphas: American Crafts; Washi Tape-Queen and Company; Punch: Recollections
The second layout I want to share is for Scrapfit’s Workout #74, a sketch from Diana. This was a pretty simple sketch and wanted to keep my layout that way as well.
Supplies used: Patterned paper-American Crafts; Washi Tape-K&Co; Pen-American Crafts; Punch: EK Success; Mist: Dylusions; Alphas: American Crafts
Enjoy your weekend! I will be back soon with some exciting news….. 🙂
