little miss sunshine: Creative Scrappers Reveal

It's a bright, sunshiny morning here on Nova Scotia's South Shore. We're taking advantage of the Canada Day holiday to have a mini-vacay at my parents' place. We've been busy taking in a couple local festivals and visiting family. Relaxing is nice! S is extending her vacation and staying with my parents for the week. I am sure she'll entertain them with all her silliness.

Here's a look at Creative Scrappers sketch # 111 by Nicole Nowosad:

Here's my take on it. We've been having some amazing weather on the east coast and S has already had a few opportunities to try out her sprinkler this year. It didn't take her long to figure out that a swim mask is a necessary accessory for the Elmo sprinkler.

Try out Nicole's sketch and post a link to your design on the Creative Scrappers site for a chance to win a prize from Scrapbook Sussies.

toes: Creative Scrappers Reveal

Check out what the ladies are up to at Creative Scrappers this week! Here's the sketch we worked with by July Gaceta:

So, I figured out the best thing about sketches...they allow you to scrap really quickly! Somehow I lost track of the days and realized at about 11PM the night before submission day that I needed to get this LO in. Oooops! Thanks to this awesome sketch, the following came together in about half an hour. New record for me, I am a really slow scrapper!

photos in need of scrapping.

I have a ton of them...unfortunately. At one point in time I was 'real time scrapping' for the most part. Now it seems that I am all over the place. Really, who am I it seems I never have time to scrap at all! Here are a few pictures taken last month that are just waiting to be embellished:

Creative Scrappers Reveal Day.

Sunday is reveal day over at Creative Scrappers. My very first reveal day. And yes, working with sketches still stresses me out a little; being part of the design team is a step outside of my comfort zone. However, our sketch designers make it pretty easy to create goodness. This week we worked with this sketch from Aphra Bolyer:

Here's my take on it:

I used a bunch of old Sassafras papers that I got as part of my 'warehouse' box from a few weeks ago. Tons of goodies in there! My fellow design teams members provided lots of inspiration this week. Be sure to try out Aphra's sketch and share your LO for a chance to win a prize pack from Snobby Walrus Paper Crafts.

silly girls.

I LOVE the Dear Lizzie line from American Crafts. I bought like everything I could get my hands on and then used it very sparingly on this LO. I don't want to cut it that weird? I should have gotten two of everything! More pictures of S from Easter weekend. I have to take advantage of the moments when she 'allows' me to take pictures...they are few and far between these days. Thanks for stopping by!
