Thankful...tribute to Morgan

Happy Thanksgiving to all celebrating today!  I did this layout yesterday and decided to get it posted here today, Thanksgiving. We are often sad and we have to remind ourselves of the 15 1/2 years we had with this wonderful Yorkie, Morgan.  She was sheer delight. Thanks for looking-it means a lot...  The sketch I used was from STUCK ON YOU SKETCHES.

Morgan Lynn Bensing 10/17/99-3/16/14, love you always

Pumpkin Head!

That is what my DH calls my 5 year old Grandson Brian (to which Brian calls his Pop Pop the same!).  I left this Layout on the counter this morning and he left me a note: "how cute are the little Pumpkin Heads?!"  Anyway, thanks for visiting!  I used a sketch from The Memory Nest- They are having a DESIGN TEAM CALL so take a look and GO FOR IT!!!

you've got the cutest little........

SCRUNCHY FACE!  I just keep snapping away and every once in awhile I catch such a cute moment!  This is Talan, my 2 yr old grandson.  I love scrapping just everyday things, so the sketch from THE MEMORY NEST worked out just great here....Thanks for stopping in-I so appreciate it!

I goofed!

Well I have to just laugh, I did this Layout for a Design Team project but failed to see that it is supposed to be Christmas and also there are additional requirements.  Soooooooo back to the drawing (scrapping!) board! LOLOLOL! Thanks for peaking!

My Layout:

Gson Brian & Talan, journaling in the mini bag lower left!


These photos worked perfectly today for the new 1 page sketch at Stick It Down.  I added red spray and splotched circles to the already "sprayed and splotched" background paper.  This is my grandson Talan this past summer trying out the old/new refurbished motorcycle-the sunglasses made him fit right in! Thanks for taking a look!

an ATC today....

Well hello! Thanks for stopping in to take a look today!  I have been totally "addicted" to ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) for the past couple of years.  Lisa at Scraps of Elegance/Darkness on Facebook offered to send me a magnificent Artist Trading Card "box" -there is an official name for them but it has escaped me at the moment!-lol! So, I made her an ATC which is a very small  thank you in comparison to her stunning work.  This one is for you Lisa!

Remember Kindergarten?!

This is September 2014 and my little grandson, Brian went to Kindergarten-just standing there smiling with his little sign-so precious!  So I used a sketch at STICK IT DOWN (but I am too late to enter it!) (by the way-they are having a design team call--try it!!!).  Thanks for stopping by!

Brian just can't stop smiling!

those funny faces!

I am finishing up a 1st year book of my niece, Marrah.  My brother/wife captured a couple of cute/funny face pictures of their daughter ( I can't resist real life!) so here is the page!  I used the 2nd week sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.  Thanks for stopping in to peek!

be happy!

I don't know what it is, but I LOVE doing ATCs (Artist Trading Cards).  When I 1st found out that they existed I said..."NEVER!"...boy did I eat those words big time!  I am always looking for a SWAP-I just love seeing what everyone does with this precious little piece of art.  The following card is for the bimonthly swap at Scraps of Darkness & Scraps of Elegance Mixed Media Scrapbooking Community found on Facebook.
As always, thanks for peeking in!

November 1 at Colorful Creations!

Where did this year go?!  It's November 1st!  Time for the new sketch at COLORFUL CREATIONS!  I am lucky enough to be on their design team.  There is a double challenge: a sketch and be inspired by colors as follows:

and my result: 

loved the "pop" of the colors so I was inspired to
 choose a different color combo than I usually play around with!
