Fan of the Game / Creative Scrappers layouts

Well this sat on my desk for over a week half done!

The littlest was pretty sick this week and admitted for a night to get 
IV antibiotics.  A sick little one plays with any moms schedule and rightfully so.
I don't recall the last sick day I took, but it was long ago.

So today before starting our adventures I got them done!
They are not all that I was planing on but hey !! 

Here is the latest sketch from Creative Scrappers
You can check them out here:

here is my layout:

Then I made page two with the last sketch from national scrapbook day from the same site
Why I like to complete all of them is beyond me - 
but hey it helps get the pages done!!

Here is the sketch

Here is the layout

It turned out to be a great two page layout!

Have a creative day!

National Scrapbook Day

I spent national Scrapbook day creating with My friends Lynne & Myra 
at our Crafty friends Tracy's House as usual.

I didn't get a ton done but hey ! we had fun!!

My layouts are based on sketches for Creative Scrappers
You can check the out here:

Here is Sketch 1

here is my Layout 

Here is Sketch 2 

My Layout

It is meant to be a page 2 to the first page - 
I need to add a title that says Mount McKay
they bottom right square opens to have 4 more pictures inside.
I love when I can get 2 sketchs into a double layout!!

Sketch 3

This picture is from almost 12 years ago 
Love this picture.

All the papers and embellishments are a kit from Crop N Create!
Love love thier kits.  This was a fall kit.  I don't do the 12x12 pages so I can change 
the layouts to make them work or just create my own - either way 
it is awesome getting items we cant buy where I live!

Thanks for the day Tracy 
& thanks for the sketches Kristine

Hope you all enjoyed the day!

Layouts from Scrap for Autism

Well here they are 

the layouts from the crop - 
maybe I will get more done this week-end at Tracy's Crop!! 

A couple years ago I took Taylor to see the USA Olympic Gymnasts
It was amazing - but none of the pics turned out - it was way to dark.
With this layout I was trying to use some items I haven used in along time '
like fibers, pearls, chip board and a large 12x12 shaped paper, which
was interesting because I make 8.5 x 8.5 layouts!

 This Photo is roughly 12 years ago but has been one of my favorites.
it is my oldest son who is now turning 18 with my husband 
& my father in law.  It was in a frame for years, but time to change it 
up & get it tacked down in his book. 

We were away for hockey last September and took the younger
kids to the Zoo for the day while waiting for game time-
alot of the park & Zoo were closed for the fall but 
what a great little gem in the middle of the City. 


I LOVE the slip N  Slide  the kids can even get me to slide with them often. 
Last year Alex had his little buddy Ethan on it - 
he had never been on one before - it was a hit!!

That was it That was all !! Grief!!
More after the weekend!!
