The Paper Mixing Bowl - Thanksgiving Leftovers

Third month I've participated in The Paper Mixing Bowl's menu challenge.

Here is the menu.  

I didn't feel the need to do any journalling as I think my title says it all.

Look at my baby O!

These pictures were taken three summers ago at a work picnic.  She is still as cute!

I saw this sketch at Paper Secrets and have been wanting to use it.  I love it!

I must always be the clown....

Thanks to my mother in law for babysitting tonight. I got home from class and the girls were asleep!  She gave me some time to play :)

I used this sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.

Also submitting to Scrap it With a Song.  Their current challenge is to use lyrics from Madonna's "Keep it Together".  The journalling is from that song, the full line is 'to get attention, I must always be the clown."

Use Your Stuff is challenging us to use pattern paper. There is a slight pattern on my base page, and everything used on this layout is from 'Summer Soul' by Fancy Pants. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Little Red Wagon - Texturize it!

Another card for the bake sale for The Espanola Skating Club.  Turns out it qualifies for this weeks challenge at Little Red Wagon.


A Christmas Card

My mom gave me the paper stack that I used for this card at least two years ago, and I am finally using it a bit!

Craftyhazelnut Christmas Challenge: Use something more than 6 months old. you all know, I am not a card maker!  However, I am not a baker either, so I made 8 of these for the bake sale in support of The Espanola Skating Club that my girls skate with.

Found another sketch challenge blog!

I found this while surfing and thought I would play along!  This blog is called Stuck On U Sketches.  I do love me a great sketch to work with!!
I also found this picture of the middle one, it was taken on her first birthday.  We were walking around the mall and I found a free picture coupon and decided to use it, as I also love free stuff!  Turned out pretty nice for an unplanned photo session.  She loved the camera even back then.

Here is the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!
