My Layout:
I must confess...Morgan has 8 beds! oh how she
loves her beds!  She is 15 1/2-so she deserves it!

silly me!

Hi everyone!  I have this sketch by Laura Whitaker scrappinaroundtheclock.  So I worked on the sketch tonight.  It left me the perfect space to use this piece of wood (the Christmas Tree in my LO) I bought after Christmas for a penny!  What I neglected to do was write on my printout that this was for BoysRule and I was to use their collection WHICH I SUBSCRIBE TO!!! Oh well...I like the way my precious grandsons turned out on this page anyway!...Thanks for taking a look!

the sweetest HEART-breakers!

The pattern is that I scrap my grandsons A LOT!...I shall broaden my horizons...soon!...maybe! LOL!  Valentine's Day has just passed and I couldn't help but grab this photo from Facebook right after my Daughter-in-law posted it.  Too sweet for words!  This LO was inspired by a LO I had to do for a round robin on, a round robin I had to do for Scraps of Darkness as well as a monthly sketch on DustyAttic (click & take a look).

back to the STONE AGE!

I can't resist the chance to do a dinosaur page!  My own son Kevin loved dinosaurs and knew every one by their proper name (& I remember quite a few! lol!).  So here is my grandson, Talan, as cute as can be...I am not sure of the origination of this sketch.  It is the "twist" for my BOYS ONLY and GIRLS ONLY challenge this month on

Thanks for taking a peek today!


and my interpretation:
Talan earlier this month!

Hi Everyone! Thanks for the visit!  I think, for me anyway, doing a Layout for multi-challenges is extra motivating.  For this LO, I had to be inspired by a picture as well as use the word "lucky" (I will post this later when this challenge goes "LIVE").  In addition, I used a sketch from My Scraps And More Sketches.  Finally, there was another picture of inspiration from Creative Embellishments with the "twist" of using 1 (or more as I did!) of the words in the picture.  I recently purchased chipboard from Creative Embellishments: SO NICE and SO REASONABLE!!!!-and let's not forget--GREAT SERVICE!

 Creative Embellishment inspiration:


Now, finally...MINE!

a good idea and sweet as sweet can be!

Just an idea to do this with your kids "stuff" from time to time.  We get wrapped up in pictures all of the time and they will love looking at these type of things in years to come too!  This happened to be done by my grandson Talan who is 1 1/2!  Thanks for looking!
