Scrapbook Challenge: Scrapbooksteals.com Orchid style!

Hello!!!

I am scrapbooker who loves a challenge.  My favorite type of challenge is a sketch challenge.  I LOVE the sketches each week that scrapbooksteals.com puts on their blog.  Each series has 10 sketches.  The sketches this time were the Orchid series.  I loved these and did a page (or two) for each of the sketches.  At the end of the series, I decided to challenge myself and do 10 new pages with the sketches.  Here are my NEW sketches for the Orchid series:

Orchid #1:

Orchid #2:


Orchid #3:


Orchid #4:


Orchid #5: 


Orchid #6:


Orchid #7:


Orchid #8:

Orchid #9:

Orchid #10:


Thank you scrapbooksteals.com for the awesome sketches.  I got a ton of pages completed and LOVE the sketches!

Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy, Scrappy day!!!

Hello and Welcome to the Clique Kits June Pep Rally!!  This month we are using the amazing La Dolce Vita kit!  I loved all the pretty papers and really fun tags included in this month's kit.  This month the sponsor for this month's kit is Sharbear crafts.  (If you haven't had a moment to check out Jordan's shop, run don't walk over and check it out!  https://www.etsy.com/shop/SharBearCrafts?ref=si_shop)  He has some of the cutest flair which I used quite a bit of on my pages!!
 
 
I love to try to get lots of pages out of my kits and this month I did 7 pages, with still quite a bit left for some more layouts.
 
 


Here is the line of all the amazing blog hoppers this month:

For this 1st layout I was inspired by the Creative Scrappers sketch:

Creative Scrappers - Clique Kits May 2016
Here is my layout using the sketch:
I loved that I finally got some more time in my craft room.....even if it was ONLY 1 day!!!  Here are my other layouts with the kit:
This one is sooooo special!!!  It is my Grandmother meeting my Granddaughter.  (Who is her Great-Great Granddaughter!)
My family loves to tease me as I can't roll my tongue. This was my grandson showing me how to do it!
I loved this card that was included in the kit.  I thought it was a perfect sentiment for my granddaughter.
Celebrating my grandson's 4th birthday.  Here is my grandson, daughter and son-in-law.
My mom made the kids an Easter basket. They had a ball playing with these silly glasses with the slinky eyes.

 
The lions at the Kansas City Zoo.

It was so nice to get to spend some time playing with my kit!!
