Your "BREW" for today...

Hello!  "Your Brew for today":  That was the caption on the left photo on Facebook on 4-7-17.  My step daughter rescued Brew and is totally obsessed.  I am making a monthly layout to culminate into a book for this coming Christmas.  I used a sketch from -> Stuck?!Sketches.
 Thanks for taking a peek today!

Grandsons & Popcorn!

Hello!  We finished our Easter celebration so I thought I'd  come here with a page I created yesterday of (who else?)-my grandsons, Brian & Talan.  We had a little fun at the local mall last weekend and voila--a page! LOL!  The sketch is from Stuck?!Sketches;  I think Laura's sketches are always fantastic and her work is inspiring! I used some elements from SCRAPS OF DARKNESS COLLECTION (the BG paper and TITLE)

April 15th at Let's Get Sketchy!

Hello! I loved doing this sketch at -> Let's Get Sketchy (click & go right there!).  I immediately thought of these photos of my niece, Marrah when she slept over last month.  She LOVED my big bathtub and didn't want to get out! The circles reminded me of bubble in the photos immediately!  This was the 1st time in 3 years and 10 mos that she was away from her parents! We had a lot of fun!  Hope you have some time to join us! IN ADDITION, there is a mood board to inspire you too!

THE SKETCH AND MOODBOARD:

Hi Everyone!  I had so much fun going to my grandson Talan's class to do a craft-I had to keep it simple since they are only 4!  I found this on Pinterest and thought it was perfect for spring.  All of the kids really enjoyed it--probably me THE MOST LOL!!!  I have created this page for several scrapbook challenges one of which you can find here-> ScrapYOUrself (you also had to use the word INSPIRE)  I used this week's sketch from HipKitClub too....
