PLEASE TAKE THE TIME to do an inventory of your home! A FIRE can destroy your life in a flash. I would HATE to have ANYONE go through what I am going through!!

MME Collectable
SRM sub title sticker
Butterfly and Journal Oval from my stash


100% Genuine Boy


I'm getting caught up on the layouts I've made and getting them blogged! I found this sketch over at Boys Rule, and thought it would be just perfect of these pics of me and my Grandson, he was being silly and I was getting some kisses in! LOL!

Here's the sketch:
 And here is my take:
Products used:
MME Boy Crazy Collection


Simple Moments


I'm trying to catch up and get my layouts posted for this month! Reminder to self: DO NOT WAIT until the end of the month to post layouts for challenges!! WHEW!

I found this sketch over at My Scraps and More Sketches;

and here is my take:
I just used white cardstock and took my TH Dusty Concord ink pad and gave it the messy look. I used some Veneer pieces. The flowers are crocheted button flowers that I made on our road trip last weekend to Kansas. I thought they turned out pretty cute. I used various stamps and also the bling butterfly and other bling from my stash. This is me and my youngest Granddaughter Paisly we were sporting purple that day!


Crazy For YOU!


WHEW! I'm way behind in getting my layouts blogged this month!! I found this sketch over at Sketch-N-Scrap;

 Here is my take:
This is my youngest grandson, he will be 2 in May and he sure LOVES it when Me-Ma takes pics of him. 

Thanks So Very Much


I played along with Feeling Sketchy for their International Scrapping Day/Month. They had a challenge to use this sketch for either a card or layout and you also had to play along with Let's Scrap and do their challenge. You can see my layout for that challenge HERE!

 Here is my take, I made a Thank You card;
I hope you take the time to play along with these challenges!


CRAZY Driver


I've been busy today, getting all my blog posts made from the past couple of weeks! EEK! It's almost the end of the month and I had several layouts done that I wanted to enter for challenges.

I found this sketch over at Scrap Much?

Here's my take:
I used these photos of my granddaughter driving the lawn mower and pulling my hubby and the burn barrel in the wagon. She got a bit big to ride on his lap on the lawnmower, so he taught her how to do the driving!



I've been Scrappin' all month, I just keep forgetting to post them here on my blog. Since it is almost the end of the month, I figured I better get busy posting them!

I found this sketch over at Let's Scrap for International Scrapbook Day Challenge and you also had to play along with Feeling Sketchy for their challenge, I made a card and you can see it HERE:

 I used some Photos I had taken of my Hubby's 39th Birthday Celebration in February:

 Close up of the left side:
 Close up of the right side:
I made him his birthday breakfast and then gave him some lights and light bulbs for his shop, he was thrilled! LOL! Also, all the Grands came down to enjoy some cake and ice cream to help him celebrate.

My Valentines


I've been scrapping off and on all month, I just keep forgetting to make my blog posts!! GEESH!! Since it's almost the end of the month, I figured I better get them entered into the challenges!

I found this sketch over at Stick it Down:

Here is my take, I had to add an extra photo, as I wanted to do all my grandkids from Valentine's Day

 Here is a close up of the left side:
 and the right side:

Did you notice the names? YES I do have and A, B, C, D and E! Unfortunately, the girls wouldn't go for F and G, so I have and M and P!! LOL! At least the first five are the start of the alphabet, the only one that was planned was the E. In actually age order it was Chrissy, Abby, Dominic and Braxton. When I realized I had A, B, C & D, I STRONGLY Suggested and E to continue, and got my wish. BUT I couldn't talk the girls into the F and G! LOL! I LOVE them all to pieces.

Our Selfie


I got my scrap on today!! This week has been a busy one, and my foot is giving me some major fits. (I had tarsal tunnel surgery in September, and it took until January for it to completely heal. I went back to work for 3 weeks, then was off a week due to the Dr. thinking I had a stress fracture. I was in my boot again for 3 1/2 weeks and finally thought it was better. I worked for 2 days and then had a day off. Last Monday I went back to work, and was only able to work 4 hours as the pain was so BAD I couldn't walk. So, I am back in the boot again as I can't afford another $50 for a copay for the Dr to tell me that I need to wear the boot again. SO, I am just hoping that wearing the boot for awhile will take care of it. OK SORRY that went a bit long! LOL! But, that's my life and why I go in spurts of scrapping, then may be absent for awhile.)

ANYWAY I got my list of challenges all set up this morning and figured out my pictures to go along with them. I found a couple that were not sketch related, so I decided to combine them together. So, I got 3 challenges with this one layout.

Here is my layout, this is me and my Grand daughter Paisly aka Queenie, I was trying to get a good selfie of us and she just wanted to eat the phone!:

(click on the layout for a bigger view)

I just used stuff from my stash~

The Mom's


I found this sketch over at Stuck ?! Sketches, and thought it would be AWESOME for this pic of me, my daughter, my daughter-in-law and my Mom. This was taken a couple of years ago on Mother's Day.

Here is the sketch:
 Here is my take:

I must say that all of this just came from my stash, no particular collection, 
just a bit of this and a bit of that.

I had some cute pictures of my Lil' Dumplin', she wanted my phone and just kept getting closer to try to grab it, while I was snapping pictures! I found this sketch that had 4 photos, and thought it was just perfect for my pictures. I found it over at Let's Get Sketchy:

 Here is my take, these are pics of the food from our Super Bowl Party:
 and here is the right side to go along with the sketch:
 Here's what they look like together
Cardstock from my stash
all other paper and embellishments are from 
EP  A Boys Life




I found this sketch over at Let's Scrap Sketches

Here is my take, I had several pictures that were taken on the same day, but different subjects, and this sketch was just AWESOME for my pics:

This is a close up of the left side, these were taken Easter 2008 at my Parents house:

This is a close up of the right side, these were taken the same day, but at my house, and these pictures are special, as they are in the house that we lost in 2012 to a fire. My grandson was not a fan of the crazy balloons, his Mommy and Daddy would blow them up and let them go and they had a plastic thing inside them, they would go crazy and chase him.

All paper is from MME Collectible collection
Chipboard letters and Veneer frame from my stash
Balloons from OA-Cakewalk
sticker letters are EP Hello Summer
Easter Delights title from a PL kit

We got Snow, Come on SPRING!


I got some scrappy time in today! I found this sketch over at Scrap Much?

 and here is my take:

This is the most snow we've had here in Mid-Missouri this winter, it wasn't much, but I would be happy if that's all we get and SPRING is on it's way!! LOL! I doubt that I will get my wish, they are calling for snow this weekend. :(
Background Paper is from Carol Wilson Fine Arts
I made the "Come on Spring" with my Silhouette
and some embellishments from a Pink Paislee
