Project Life: Week 45

On my scrap weekend retreat I completed my 2013 project life album. It was the first time I've attempted something like this and I did it. I can't wait to start on my 2014 album!

I'm going to share a page a day until they are all posted (other than my two DT projects)

Last one for tonight, I promise. I just needed to get them all linked up with the challenges before the due dates! This sketch is from Stuck?!

I can't believe how little they were in this photo. The still love each other too!


I love playing along with the Scrappy Friends! I combined all their challenges into the above layout!

GrandDiva's Sketch:

Rochelle's TicTacToe board: 
(I chose the camera, orange and handmade embellishment - sprayed background and hand-stitched circle)

Kelly's Word Challenge: (adorable)


I know this paper isn't Easter, but I wanted to use it so badly! I just loved it!

I haven't played at Sketches In Thyme in forever, but this sketch needed to be done!

Another fabulous sketch from ScrapMuch? Once I had this title, I couldn't get the Billy Talent song out of my head! The little writing under the title says 'on the groud.'


My blog is going to seem like it's exploding! I've been at a retreat all weekend and I got so much accomplished! I completed my 2013 Project Life Album, a picture a day - everyday, all done! I counted and I used 50 pocket pages. Let's focus on the positive that I completed that album and not that I'm almost a year behind on my 2014 album!

I got to play along with a few sketch challenges as well!

This is the first sketch I chose from Scrapmuch? I loved it!

Stuck On U Sketches: Black, Orange and White

Since it's October and Halloween is quickly approaching, Stuck On U Sketches is asking you to use black, orange and white on your spread. I chose these pics of my girl creating her jack o' lanterns and then going out for candy. She is looking less than thrilled in her Supergirl costume because it was so cold out and she just wanted to be done with the whole thing!

You have 2 weeks to share your creation with us!

Another card....Sketch ~N~ Scrap floral challenge

My team is back up at Sketch ~N~ Scrap with the floral challenge.

For me, a floral challenge means I get to pull out my crochet thread and go to town! For sure, those three flowers took longer to make than the card itself, but I love making them.

Week 42 Project Life: "Keep Calm and ..."

I admit to not getting the whole "keep calm" craze going on in the world, however when I found out the challenge this week at Stuck On U Sketches, I found this one and it fit perfectly with O's birthday gift.

I still don't get it, but it works!

You have until October 19 to keep calm with us!

Sketch ~N~ Scrap: First Skate

When I think back to O's first years on skates, it amazes me how far she has come! She started learning the basic jumps last year and just absolutely loves being on the ice.

You have until the end of October to link up at Sketch ~N~ Scrap. The sketch rocks, show us what you can do with it!

Psst, I got a sewing machine as an anniversary gift from my hubby and I finally got up the courage to use it! I watched the video and followed the steps and I love the look of it!!
