Serious Boy

Finally!! I finally jumped into my March Scraptastic Club kit. I have been busy with life and haven't had a lot of time to scrap. I know! Sad right?!?!?
I love the sketch for the Sketchy Thursday this month. I stuck to it pretty closely.
I have been dying to scrap this photo of Colton and loved the My Minds' Eye Shimmer paper and the Bazzill Adventure Arrows paper. I thought it went well with the black and white photo. I also used some of the October Afternoon Develop paper from the February kit. The pop of red just adds the right tough I think.
Thanks for visiting my blog and enjoy your scraps!!!

Game Boys

I am rolling out the layouts with this February Mr. Big Stuff kit from Scraptastic Club. This is I think my 4th one and I still have tons of stuff left. I did get the main kit and add on which is always more than enough fun stuff to play with. My March kit just got here yesterday but I am having so much fun with this one I haven't opened it yet :)

It's Challenge Thursday over on the Scraptastic Club Blog today and I was already itchin to scrap so I took the challenge and ran. It's a fun tic tac toe challenge and I chose Wood Veneers, 2 Flair Buttons, and At Least 1 Die Cut. This was an easy one for me since these kits are full of all those items and so well coordinated.
I used the Sydney Card stock by Bazzill for my background. I'm really liking this design lately too. I put a strip of the Echo Park That's My Boy You Rock paper across the top of the page and layered my photo and more paper on it. I used the Numbers paper by Echo Park as well as some stickers for their elements sticker sheet. Jessica has combined some great product here. The October Afternoon All Boy Daily Flash paper and Simple Stories Daily Grind Ephemera and Chipboard Stickers match perfectly.
Bottom cluster here. Ormolu makes the most fabulous flair and cut aparts for Scraptastic Club.
Wish me luck in this challenge. Thanx for stopping by and enjoy your scraps!!!

Surprise Snow Day

Been working with my February Scraptastic Club kit and loving it. (I know I always say that) This kit was made for me I think. It's called Mr. Big Stuff and is full of boy stuff. Perfect for the pics of my boys.
This isn't the first layout I've done with this kit but I wanted to get it up on the blog because I used the sketch from the March Sketch Challenge over at Life Paper Scrapbook. and I want to link it up to their blog asap.
I am so enjoying sketches lately. I find it's a great starting point for me. I have a tendency to sit there for awhile trying to figure out which direction I wanna go and a sketch really jump starts it for me.
Like I said above, this kit was made for me. The October Afternoon Daily Flash All Boy Cooties paper matched Colton's jacket so well I knew I had to use it. I wasn't planning on it but it ended up being sort of a monochromatic layout. Love that teal color.

I really enjoyed all the layering. I'm kinda struggling with my layering lately. I feel like it's taking the focus off my photos but this sketch had the layers just popping out slightly and I love it!
Top cluster. Love how Jessica matches different lines for these kits and they always go so good together!!
Thanx for stopping by and enjoy your scraps!!!

Winter Beach Trip

This is my last layout with my November Scraptastic Club kit as of yet.
I've been working with my February kit so the scraps of this kit have been filed away for now. I just got notice that my March kit is on it's way so I'll be posting my layouts from my February kit soon.
I went up to my sisters to scrapbook for a couple days and here is one of the layouts I made. It's a picture of us at the beach during winter break. It was so cold there and even a fire didn't warm me up. The boy's were having so much fun digging in the sand and I didn't have the heart to make them leave.

I used a piece of white card stock for the back ground and layered different patterned paper on it for a base for my photo. The paper in this kit are so bold and vibrant. Very fun to play with.  I stamped some blotches under the paper for some interest with the Stampin Up Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and the Real Red ink pad.
I tucked some lables here and there for fun. Love the enamel hexagons so I put a few here and there.
I used both alphas that came in the kit and did my journaling right under the title. I love this photo so much and really wanted it to speak for itself.
Thanx for stopping by and enjoy your scraps!!!
