Hey there! I'm all caught up so the rest of the month is scrapping whatever I please. Today is all about Scrap Our Stash. I am sharing pages I made for both July challenges today.

This first LO is based on the Stash challenge. Find inspiration from the book "Oh the Places You'll Go" by Dr. Suess, using 5 patterned papers and a circular element. I did this right after we got home from vacation after July 4. It's a Sketch from Paper Issues and wow, it got my mojo going!

I don't know where he thought he was going, but he booted his Uncle out of the captains chair and took over the wheel. I'm guessing he was discussing his plans with Hank the Bulldog, but we didn't catch what they were saying. I can tell you that Uncle Brian had to jump back in to steer, because we clearly weren't going where we were supposed to!  So yes, Oh the Places You'll Go!  There are 5 patterned papers, (wood, plaid, star, triangle, dots) a few round brads and a round sticker.

This next page is for the Sketch +3 challenge.  I used Simple Stories (game card die cuts), Theresa Collins (my guy and hexagon stickers) and Uniball pen (doodled lines on navy paper and around 'notes' above photo). I saw this Preppy Plaid cut file at The Cut Shoppe and loved it. It was perfect tot use as the background for this page.

While waiting at the doctors office one day, my son grabbed a coloring sheet and started coloring. I couldn't remember the last time he did that. It just struck me that as fast as he is growing up and becoming more independent, I was so happy to see a part of him that was still a little kid. 

Thanks for stopping by my creative view today. I've got lots of ideas in my head which means more pages and posts, so come back again soon
