Ornaments and Presents Layout

     Hi everyone and welcome to the February Scrapping our Stash blog hop.  You should have arrived here from Katrina's page.  Didn't she make an awesome project!?
     For my project I pulled out another of my old Scrapbook Generation kits.  I have been working hard on getting these used up to make room in my stash.  I only have about three layouts to print pictures for!  
    This particular project features products from Simple Stories and pictures of our son and my hubby from Christmas two years ago.  This was one year that his Christmas gift still gets played for regularly!
    Next up you want to hop on over to see Allison's wonderful creation.  Before you go though I'd love for you to leave a comment and follow me...all my links can be found on the right.  Have a great day!

The Best Layout

So I'm back today with a stash busting layout inspired by sketch 472 from Scrapbook Challenges. There is a little bit of everything on this layout. The background paper is from my February my Creative Scrapbook Kit.  The paper under the photo is from Simple Stories.  The washi, wood veneer and stars are from Freckled Fawn.  The fiber and OX symbol are from Studio Calico. 
The grey dot is modeling paste mixed with grey paint and put through a swiss dot stencil.  The wood veneer also was plain when I started.  I smeared some pink Gelato on them and then moved it around with an aqua brush.  I then dried with my heat tool, and added a second layer to intensify the color and have it offer a contrast from the pink in the washi.  
This is a totally different, and girly, layout for me, but I'm very pleased with how it came out.  I'd love your comments!

Love Wedding Layout

Hi All - back today with another layout for a challenge blog.  This sketch came from ScrapMuch!? and I used the colors from their color challenge.  You had to use four and my choices were Lipstick Red, Sweat Pea, Sea Aqua and Grey Plank.
 All the paper came from the February Creative Kit that I received from My Creative Scrapbook.  You can see everything I received in my youtube video.  All the papers are from Doodlebug with a random washi thrown in here and there.  While this isn't my normal style I was pleased with how it came out.  
Thanks for joining me today, and stay tuned for some new news and blog hops in the next few weeks.

Lil' Stinker Layout

Hi everyone - long time no scrap.  I'm back today with an entry for a new to me challenge site called Scrap The Boys.  They had a fun sketch this month and here is my take...
I used the September kit from My Creative Scrapbook. This was meant to be a travel themed kit, but obviously I didn't use it that way.  The black pieces that frame my picture are chipboard that our son helped me emboss with black powder.
Hope you love my page, and check out the challenge site I found.
