I did this LO of the kids making snowballs and gathering them in their wagon. The challenge was for DT challenge at Let's Scrap. There were a bunch of different techniques and items you were to use. I used textured cardstock, mesh, metal, fabric, a button, paint, a sketch, and to make your own embellishment. Quite a list but I got it done!! I also combined it with the challenge at The Paper Variety to sew on your LO. I sewed that cute red fabric onto my LO, a row on the top and a row on the bottom.

Good Times

My take on this week's sketch over at Let's Scrap. Pictures are of the kids and their cousins at Lego Land. Papers are Echo Park and Bella Blvd.

We Love Fire Engines

I did this one last week during the 1 hour sketch contest over at Memorable Seasons. You were given a sketch and had 1 hour to complete it. It was kinda stressful with a time limit but fun and motivating at the same time and I love how it turned out. The pictures are of the kids and their cousins before the Lehi parade started. They loved checking out the fire engines.

Cold Play

I did this one from a sketch at the Paper Variety. It was actually a card sketch but I used it for a LO instead! I also combined it with the scrapbook throwdown challenge over at Memorable Seasons. The challenge was to use only patterned paper, some bling, and stitching-got all 3. Pics are of Haley playing in the snow.

Valentine's Banner

A couple of my friends and I got together last week to make these Valentine banners. They were super easy to make and fun to make them together!! We each had different fabric but followed the same pattern so it was cool to see how each one turned out. We got the idea from the Moda Bake Shop. I still may add some fabric yo-yos and buttons to the top later on but at least it's up for now!! Growing up, my sisters and I would make a birthday banner, just with paper and markers, and hang it up on the wall so I think it would be super fun to make a birthday banner using this pattern.

Oh, and my Valentine layout was spotlighted over at The Paper Variety, go check it out!!

I used sketch #104 from The Scrappiest for this LO and it's also for this week's Scrapbook Throwdown challenge over at Memorable Seasons. The throwdown recipe is to create a LO with clean lines, centered and balanced, 3 matted pictures in a row, lots of inked edges, and a punched border.

I got this one done today using sketch #103 from The Scrappiest. I also found a new challenge blog so I played along for the Yummy Hearts challenge over at The Paper Variety. These are some pics of Haley after a valentine's playgroup party that was at our house (in 2007!!)
