Ready to Learn?

Hi everyone! We are not quite ready to go back to school yet up here in Canada, BUT last year my friend Deanna Williams took some very cute photos of Taylor (and my other two kids!)    I couldn't wait to scrap this one because Taylor's expression was awesome!

I used the new collection by Bella Blvd: Tiny Tots!!  WHICH I LOVE!!! I have a feeling I will be hoarding every last little bit of it! lol!

Here is the layout:

Sweet Sassy YOU!

Hi everyone! It's Tuesday and today i thought I would share a layout that was up on the Bella Blvd blog yesterday for the MONDAY CHALLENGE!  The challenge this week was to use at least four border stickers or strips! EASY PEASY! I  love all the border stickers and I find I use them all the time! Here is the layout I created:

Lots of fun! I just LOVE the strawberry squeeze paper, and I know you can't see it but the dress Little Miss Taylor is wearing has a strawberry on it!  Here are some detailed shot:

I just got my big box of the NEW Bella Blvd goodies too, and I am digging into them tonight! Can't wait to get crafty!

Be sure to stop by the Bella Blvd Blog for more inspiration!

Sketchy Challenge for July with Canadian Scrapbooker!

Happy Monday everyone!  Well it has been quite the two weeks FULL of surprises! A couple of weeks ago Taylor got the chicken pox or hand foot mouth disease, and trust me... it wasn't fun! The poor wee girl was really sick, but at least she perked up for our official first week off of summer vacation! We managed to go camping in the States at Allegany State Park, and we had a blast! I have really missed camping since last year was non existent with the move!  

So YES I have been a very bad blogger lately, and YES not as much crafty time lately... but I promise you that is going to change over the next couple of weeks, because once again my husband is heading out to work. (BOO!).... 

Today and a little bit all week too, I have lots to share! So sit back and enjoy some craftiness! I have had this layout done since the beginning of July, I know can you believe that! But I just never seemed to have the time to photograph it, blog about it, etc.... I finally feel like I have my groove back and this collection: Good Day Sunshine by Simple Stories is full of colour and FUN!

Here is the sketch I used for the month from Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine's Sketchy Challenge:

I replaced the middle photo with one of the cards found in this collection! Love how this turned out! Here are some close ups:

Thanks for letting me share today!!! Be sure to come back tomorrow for more fun! (oh yes... and be sure to upload your creation of the sketch too, to the GALLERY: HERE!)
