Hello and Happy Tuesday. I hope everyone had a beautiful Easter weekend. After the service on Sunday morning we were able to get someone to take a photo of our family...we have so few pictures of all four of us together and the fact that we are dressed in our "Easter finest" just makes it all the better. I can't wait to get this photo developed and scrapped!

And speaking of scrapbooking, I've been playing with all my new scrappy goodies again. For this page I used a sketch from Sketchabilities.

I flipped the sketch and came up with this...
I used a photo I took of Paolina in the car when we were on our way to the Santa Monica Pier to celebrate my birthday in 2012. I adore those sunglasses...wish I had an exact pair for myself! For product, I mixed it up as usual....the flair, background & some of the punched strips are Crate Paper Love Notes, the tags are Crate Paper Styleboard, and the fussy cut flowers & stickers are Basic Grey Fresh Cut.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look!


My Scraps & More #77

It's Friday! And time for another sketch at My Scraps & More Sketches!

And here's what I did with it...

I love this photo of Santiago and me acting silly for the camera. And I love all the new product I got to play with to create it as well. The background paper is Bo Bunny Modern Miss. The paper scraps are Amy Tan Plus One; Crate Paper Styleboard, Love Notes and On Trend; My Mind's Eye Lucky in Love; some very old Sassafras Lass. The flair is Crate Paper Love Notes, the vellum ephemera is Crate Paper Styleboard and the enamel dot is My Mind's Eye. I even used a new 6x6 mask from Crafter's Workshop called Sketch Grid.

Thanks so much for looking...hope you will take the time to see what else our talented design team came up with using this week's sketch!


Let's Get Sketchy April Week 2

It's Monday which means it's time for another fabulous sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.

And here's what I did with it...
The photo I used for this took me down memory lane...Paolina was about 5 weeks old and Santiago was 2 years old. In less than two weeks, he will be turning 6, and in June Paolina will be 4. Wow has the time flown by! For product I used My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart, Studio Calico The Pier, Crate Paper Love Notes & Styleboard, and some miscellaneous scraps from Prima, Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye and Dream Street Papers.

Thanks for looking...please head over to the the Let's Get Sketchy blog for more inspiration using this week's sketch!
