Life is Sweet

Sunday, April 7, 2013

Yippee...Scrap time this weekend! I had a few pages on my agenda and I got two of them finished so far.  But I only have one to share today.  When I don't have consistent time to scrap, I feel like I lose my place.   What I mean is, I forget the ideas I had in my head or what I wanted to work on next.  When this happens, I will browse through some of the many challenge blogs looking for inspiration.

Today's LO was inspired by three different blogs: Scrap Our Stash gave me the idea for the papers, dots and stripes...Umm, yes, I have just a little bit of those in my stash....Next is Frosted Designs for reminding me that yes, scallops are also in my stash....and lastly, Sketches in Thyme for their lovely sketch #107.

I also need to mention that Sketches in Thyme is having a Design Team call.  I am throwing my name in the hat this time around. I've been really enjoying their sketches since I found them In Dec.  They are clear, easy to interpret, and are both single and multi photo.


This photo is my older son being the "big cousin".  The two little guys just wanted to do everything he was doing.  After a walk on the pier, we took them for ice cream.  They all got the same thing...Blue Superman ice cream.  

I could't think of any better paper than what I chose.  Last spring I started buying more collections as opposed to just a few pieces of paper here and there.  My thought was that I'd have an easier time selecting my supplies when I started a page.  Well, yes, that is exactly what happened here.  I used both sides of 2 papers and the chipboard embellishments.  I opted not to add an additional title, just using the "Life is Sweet" on the chipboard.  I hesitated only for a moment about using the stripe scallop piece on top of the stripe paper, but I really like the way it looks. It gave it fun dimension.

Thanks for inspiring me, visiting my blog and taking a look. 

Supplies: PP-MME and Doodlebug, Chipboard and tape-MME, Stickles
