I hate you.

Powerful words. I'm pretty sure O regrets saying that to me tonight. That girl was in the corner faster than she even knew.
I'm fairly certain the second part of the punishment will help her remember that the word hate doesn't belong in our home.

TSF online crop - Sharlene's outdoor attire challenge

Summer means sunglasses and hats!  Here is my youngest with her pépère, just hanging out in the sun.


This is the last layout for this crop!  I have completed all the challenges.  Now back to the other online crop....just not tonight, I am going to bed!




Based on an Allison Davis sketch.


TSF online crop - Carolyn's favourite summer activity challenge.

Océane just loves to dance, so these photos were perfect for this challenge!

Another great Allison Davis sketch!

TSF's online crop, crash your summer stash!

Christa's challenge was to use up older summer stuff, or as my husband likes to say, use up some of the hoard.

This is Summer Days from Echo park, from last year, I think.  I based it on another Allison Davis sketch.

Laura loves, loves, loves cherries, even to this day.  She just doesn't make so much of a mess!

TSF's online crop, Jayne's postcard/stamp challenge.

Here is my take on Jayne's challenge for the Chase Away the Winter Blahs.

TSF's online crop, Joanne's colour challenge.

Joanne issued a colour challenge based on this photo.

Here is my take on the colours.

Based on a sketch by Allison Davis.

Chase Away the Winter Blahs! online crop at TSF

I am participating in the crop this weekend and have completed my first project!  I did a LO based on Shelby's challenge to include a sun somewhere in the design.  I saw this idea at a crop I went to a few weekends ago, and thought it would make a perfect sun!

Laura was only five weeks old in this picture, so long ago since she was such a tiny babe!


The sun is completely stitched, as are the accents on the clouds.  I even flocked the pears on the tree!

Happy Valentine's day preparation!

The youngest is sleeping and the oldest are writing their cards out. No hand made ones this year though, the daycare list is way too long!!

Feb 11/12 My Sketch World Sketchathon

I absolutely loved this sketch!

Help me out with a title, please!



Feb 10/12 My Sketch World Sketchathon

Here's my take on Lucy's sketch. My white gel pen is dead, so when I get a new one, I will do the dot and dash thing around the edges...Thanks for the advice, Shelby!


Feb 9/12 My Sketch World Sketchathon

The 9th sketch is another card.  I don't like doing cards, but I couldn't figure out how to make a layout out of this one.


Feb 8/12, My Sketch World sketchathon

I really liked today's sketch.  I broke into the Twig line that I have been hoarding!  I can't believe I actually cut it up.  I love this whole line.


Feb 7/ 12 My Sketch World sketchathon.

Here's my version of the 7th sketch.  I did a card, yes, I did.  Unheard of really.  It's for my brother's birthday next month, so don't tell him!


Feb. 6th My Sketch World sketchathon

Day number 6!

Here is my version for Lucy's sketch.  I haven't embossed in forever, but I really like the butterfly!


Feb. 5th My Sketch World Sketchathon

I went to a crop today and got all caught up on this challenge!

Here is my take on Lucy's sketch.  I flipped the sketch, made it into a layout instead of a card, and I changed the direction of one of the strips of paper.

Worst mom award.

Thursday nights is Laura's Sparks. I don't know why, but I can never remember what time it starts. It was 5 after six last night when I realized that Sparks starts at six. Dan tried to get her there, but the doors were locked and he couldn't get anyone's attention. Laura was devastated. It is her favourite activity of the week.

I came home to find this on the calendar! I hope it works better than the texts my phone sends me!

Now I am only three days behind!!  Good thing Lucy has given us a long time frame to get these sketches completed.

Here is my take on Lucy's sketch.

Feb. 3/12 My Sketch World Sketchathon

I am on a roll with this sketchathon!  Here is my take on Lucy's sketch.  It was Aubie's turn today.



Feb 2/12 My Sketch World Sketchathon

It's the 5th of February and I have now finished the Feb 2 sketch!  Only three days behind....

Here is my take of Lucy's sketch.  She offered it as a card sketch, but I chose to do a layout instead.

Out and about!

At the end of our dead end street, there are a bunch of trails. Since it was so nice out today, and we actually had nothing scheduled, we went for a walk. All six of us!

Feb. 1/12 My Sketch World Sketchathon

I joined in the sketchathon last year and received a smoking hot prize pack from Cosmo Cricket, so I'm playing again!

I'm already behind, but here is my take on Lucy's first sketch.
