I'm all about the sketches

Seems like lately I've been inspired by sketches and I am really enjoying myself with them.
Here is one I made from the SCRAPIDEES blog, those ladies have some good mojo to share!

Studio Calico
"No help needed" this was the girls first day of school and they felt they were too grown to get help tying their shoes...gosh how they melt my heart! Thanks BP for getting me hooked on

I finally used one of my STUDIO CALICO kits, the DECEMBER kit to be exact : )
I have not touched my kits for the past 7 months so it looks like I'm about to pull them all out and get to work.
Well! That's all I have for today. Have a wonderful night!

Happy Birthday!!!

On the 15'th our beautiful Solimar turned 3 and all I can say is "where has the time gone?"
I should have know by the way she was born that she was going to be a hand full, she brings us such joy but at time she makes me want to pull my hair out ; )
Coincidentally today I found a copy of her birth announcement and decided to do a layout with my left overs from the DECEMBER KIT at THE PAPER NICHE, and let it be know I still have enough to do at least 2 more layouts : )

Paper Niche

This layout was inspired by challenge 14 @ SCRAP IN JAPAN, the ladies there have crazy mojo and truth be told this layout only took 20 something minutes and it was put together on the couch 'cause I wanted to spend time next to Mr. Hubby ; )
OK, I wanted to share some Bday pictures with you but since I have just spent over 30 minutes trying to edit my pictures with NO success I will have to skip that :)
As always ladies THANK you for stopping by to check out my craziness, oh yeah...1 question, have you finished your Christmas shopping??? Believe it or not Mr. Hubby and I went today and can I tell you that I am now broke and have to get a job at the SCRIP CLUB :D :D :D J/K
Anyhoot, have a wonderful week!!!

A Very Vintage Christmas Kit & PL sketch 165

Happy Hump Day ladies!!!
I hope your week has been great and if it has not...there is always tomorrow : )
The December kit is up for sale at
THE PAPER NICHE and once again LEAH has put together a FANTABULOSO kit!!!

So this layout here is for PENCIL LINE'S sketch # 165
I thought the colors were perfect for this picture of Angejolie meditating, I love the idea that they have taught her how to meditate at school, and the fact that she is proudly wearing her Filipino shirt that my mom in law brought back for her when she went back to the mother land brings me such joy.

Here are my other layouts with the kit

And this layout was inpired by sketch 116 at SCRAPIDEES.

Make sure you stop by
THE NICHE'S BLOG to see what the other ladies did.
One more thing, you might not see journaling on my pages, that's because I tend to (A) run out of space and (B) I do NOT like my handwriting ; )

As always, have a wonderful day and I hope that you all have done all your Christmas shopping because I have NOT! :D :D :D

Bad blogger!!!!!

Wowza!!! I have been a bad blogger : (
It seems like for ever since my last post and I am going to blame this on the holidays ; )
I have had zero time to scrap, I have not been able to touch my December kit for the PAPER NICHE which by the way is due in 2 days but I have this to share

Point Blank

This is my take on challenge #4 at POINT BLANK PERIOD (a little late but once again Imma blame it on the holidays) and they also have an article on this challenge HERE, so make sure you stop by and come play because the prize is yummmmmy and the challenge is fun.

Point Blank
The journaling is on the back and it reads: I love this time of the year for all the joy and excitement it brings you. I love it because you still believe in Santa and you say he has a key to our house and that is how he is able to get in to bring you your gifts. I love it because our streets and malls are decorated which makes them beautiful. I love it because they play Christmas songs on the radio, especially "All I want for Christmas is You" by Mariah Carey. I love it because Disney has the "Very Merry Christmas" parade and Santa and Mrs. Claus are there and I love Christmas morning because not only is it the day Baby Jesus was born but also the day your cousin Devin was born.

OK, so I need to apologize for the short and boring post but it's super late and I am beat from this crazy week. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and as always THANK you for your sweet comments because they make my day : )
