Hi friends, this layout I did for the friday sketch challenge over at scrapbooking & crafting friends. We could either do a layout or a card, since I did a card last time I decided to do a page this week. Papers are K & Company brown paper pack, the small alphas are chloe's closet. I distressed the edges added ribbon and made the photo corners, that idea came from Carol(Keeperofmemories), thanks Carol. Quote reads, 'may your paths always lead back to each other.' This is a pic of my 2 daughters...tfl!

Laugh Card

This is for the card challenge over at scrapbooking & scrapbooking friends. We had to use the sketch and shades of blue. I actually made 4 of these...it seems when I do make cards, then I make a set of at least 3 or 4! Its a awesome way to use up scraps! Tfl!
This is a card my daughter asked me to make for her teacher. I decided to fancy up the inside of the card as well, all she has to do is sign her name...Tfl

Many faces of Ashley

These are from a photoshoot my daughter was in while she was in australia. I love how these pictures turned out. I was also using my new circle punch...yippee, I LOVE IT! All this time I have been cutting circles out by hand, needless to say they were not perfectly round...now this makes all the difference! Papers are pink paisley, as well as the sticker title letters. The flowers at the left side I hand cut from patterned paper. All quotes and little designs on the hearts and circles are rub ons! Tfl

Cool Shades

this is a 2 page layout I did for a couple challenges. I dont usually do 2 pagers, but I didn't find it all that challenging. I just prefer to work on 1 at a time. Tfl

Guitar Man

This is my son at christmas time 2007, this was one of his gifts. I did a few things here I don't usually do, like, painting, cardboard and glitter. It was fun...but messy...lol! Tfl

This is another take on the sketch at 52 sketches 52 weeks! Just having some fun here, using cardboard, paint and glitter...not my norm. The pic wasn't all that great so I thought I would brighten the page up. This is a pic of us after thanksgiving dinner last year. Inked around white mat, inked cardboard edge in green, painted cardboard. Title is vinyl stickers. Added some journalling on three strips of different papers. Tfl~~Kelly

So Cute

This is for the sketch at 52 sketches 52 weeks. My son does not like this pic, I thought it was cute...young love. Tfl =)


I did this for the blooming butterfly challenge at sb.com, and the summer colour (oranges and yellows) challenge on another site. Inked all edges, distressed the yellow paper, handcut the flourish and leaves. Flowers and butterflies are from the $ store. Used a cloth doily under the pic. Tied ribbons around a circle. Quote reads...Daughters are like flowers, they fill the world with beauty.

Pool Dog

this is for the june colour challenge at sb.com. Colours to use are black, white, red and teal/turquois. I cut the red, black/white, and white circles out with my silhouette. The smaller circles I used a circle punch and added ribbon. Title is from basic grey bittersweet sticker letters. I doodled all dots on the title and around the 'P'. The turquois strips behind the photo are raffia. Tfl~~Kelly

Fun Memories

This is a page of my son and his g/f, when they went to niagara falls last summer. I dug out some eyelets for this page. Threaded them with red cord all along the border. I used two different ribbons here, the grey with red and the butterfly one. Matted the pics with red, the darker colour is a dark grey zigzag print, all on white cardstock. Thanks so much for looking! ~~Kelly
