All year PocketLetter @ Creative Embellishments

Hello!  I had to do a Pocketletter for an individual swap.  The topic was "jars".  I had no ideas until I sat down to actually do it and then I decided to do shakers in every pocket and cover many events throughout each year.  I have to say, its one of my most favorite PL creations since I started a year ago (it's PL #26!).  I also kept (click & go) -> Creative Embellishments in the forefront, my goal being to use their products in every jar too!

You have 3 weeks to join in on this month's challenge for a chance to win $50 in their fabulous products; check the link above for the challenge details for October! -Hope you have time to join us! 

My Pocketletter:
Creative Embellishments Products Used:  Snowflake border   Happy New Year Flair  Open Heart Sun/Cloud  Grass Border  bunny   Jar  Open stars    Ruler  Ghost  bat  Christmas tree, mini 
-all chipboard/wood veneers were colored with markers and the ruler was left natural

Hello! I just got back from Florida-I have spent half this past year there helping my mother.  Last week, my twin nephew flew in from Texas-he had 2 days off...I am so thankful that the family goes out of their way to visit during her decline.  Family was always so important to my mother and really helps her now.

Since I am also in the photo -I joined in the October challenge @  (click & go) -> Scrap Yourself.  the challenge this month is to create your own background-so I used 3 stencils, distress inks and paste for this background.  I also did this page with inspiration from Amie on for the scraplift challenge-I turned her page sideways.

Thanks for taking a peek today-
I really appreciate it!

It's October @ Let's Get Sketchy! Come scrap with us!

Hello!  I came across these photos from a 2017 scrapbooking weekend getaway.  We had a whole house to ourselves with meals provided-You could NOT ask for anything more!  I had the mugs made for everyone and filled them with candy. We really had a super fun time!

I used the 1st of 2 monthly sketches from (click & go!) -> LET'S GET SKETCHY.  They are always user friendly and easy to make your own!

Halloween @ Creative Embellishments

Hello! My favorite holiday, HALLOWEEN-who am I kidding?-I LOVE THE CANDY!  I also love seeing the little ones in costumes!  In this page I created for (click & go) -> CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS, I so enjoyed making these Halloween monsters with my 2 grandsons and my niece last year.  Take a peek at this month's challenge-you have ALL MONTH for a chance to win $50 in their fabulous products!

and the "twist" is to use multiple photos/images on your project.

MY PROJECT is a scrapbook Layout:
Creative Emebllishments Products Used:  Mesh panel:  I cut and covered the panel w/Tim Holtz picket fence distress paint, let it dry and then dabbed it with the paint again.  Bootiful Title:  I used Sharpies to color the title black, blue and the white is again, the white distress paint.  Then I added Googlie Eyes like the treats we made that day.

Thanks for stopping by!  
Hope you can join us this month!
