A sketch and a collection = Happy ME!

FINALLY I got to scrap this month-WHEW how I have missed this.  And even better I actually got a challenge done and posted here on time.  Over at My Scraps & More she is hosting a weekly sketch challenge which is right up my alley.  Here is this week sketch

And I actually pulled out some Echo Park for this one.  I luv their product so easy to work with so I breezed thru this sketch rather quickly with no hesitation.  Which totally kick started my mojo again.  So here's what I came up with

So proud of myself-I just reached in a box of pictures and pulled this out and went for it--I luv it.  Now I cant wait for the new sketch tomorrow!

Thanks for looking,

(Yes he is my son-my hubs finally got to adopt him-long long story) I have been hoarding this photo waiting for the perfect pps to inspire me and as soon as I saw this line I knew I finally found it. You gotta get you sum of these girls! OK sorry back to the contest stuff

Let's PArty

So NSD was last weekend but not over at Memorable Seasons.  we are celebrating all week long-YIPEEEE!

We the DT are issuing a challenge a day--thats a total of 6 challenges for the week and the crop ends on Sunday at midnight.  No grumbling now ladies, if you cant find the time to scrap this week we have some games with prizes.  And I am even hosting a show n tell challenge.  See so you dont have to scrap to have sum fun!

And of course it wouldnt be an NSD party without a sale in the store
dont stop in that category cuz there is also a clearance sale going on too-WHOOP WHOOP my favorite 2 words in the English language. LOL!

So here's the scrappy challenge I issued for the week....

Manufacturer line mixer--I love when I get a new line of paper to dive into my stash from that company and see what older product mixes well with the new stuff. 

So my challenge to you is --create a layout with at least 2 different paper lines from the same manufacturer.

Here's mine, I worked with the NEW MME Miss Caroline Dilly Dally stuff--OHHH my goodness it is soo dang cute.  And it mixes really well with the STella and Rose or the Lost and found lines

Now wont you come on over and join the party!
