all BOY


Did you see the double challenge going on with The Paper Variety and ScrapFIT? I am LATE for The Paper Variety, I could have sworn that I had until the March 30th, OH WELL! But, I am not LATE for the ScrapFIT challenge.

This is the sketch from The Paper Variety, and the challenge at ScrapFIT is to make a list:

Here is my take:

I used Coredinations cardstock and sanded the edges, the rest of the paper is from my stash of scraps.
The Stars I won from Boys Rule, and I used burlap to make the banner.




Can you tell that I went back to work? I've been scrapping here and there, but haven't had the time or energy to put them on my blog.

This is the sketch over at ScrapFIT:
Here is my take:

These are my Grandsons, out in the backyard having fun and running around.

Paper Studio Boys will be Boys Stack

Liebster Blog Award


My Daughter Tiffany chose me for the Liebster Blog Award!! THANK YOU!!! Look at what she said about me:
#1 My momma (AKA Me~Ma Kim) is #1 because I never would have started scrapping if she hadn't introduced me to it. She gave me my whole life in a scrapbook album when I turned 16, because she couldn't afford to give me a car! I still have my scrapbooks and my first car is in a junk yard somewhere! She makes amazing layouts and I am envious of her talent! *isn't she just the SWEETEST?*

Check out her blog and become a follower, she is my FAVORITE Scrappin' buddy!

I did a Blog Hop over at A Walk Down Memory Lane as they are celebrating their 9th Birthday and they have this GREAT Sketch, so I decided to play along. You must use this sketch:
