Pool Time...

Happy Sunday.  Yes it's me again... twice this week.  I am amazing myself.  :)  It also helps that we have had thunderstorms here for 2 days, we've vacationed a ton and YES... Football has begun!  
I love watching all the ins and outs of the game... even during this Pre-season stuff... but better yet, my Husband is engrossed with the TV and his (still figuring out) Fantasy Football team... that my Scrapping time just might get to increase.  
It's the start of a new challenge over Lasting Memories.  
Our overall August theme is "Sky High"...
So this week we want to see you add a Starburst or Sunburst to your layouts.
LM 255
Add a Starburst or Sunburst to your layout.

Here is my take...

I am also entering this with "Scrap our Stash Challenge" #29 - the word is PAPER.

Use something on your layout using each letter of the word paper.

P - Punches, Pens
A - Alphas
P - Pinwheel, Pool
E - Enamel Dots,
R - Rhinestones

My layout is actually the 2nd page to a layout I did a few months ago.  And here it is all together...

  Ha!  Yes... that is how behind I am.  :)
So glad I could get this done and join in a challenge!
I wish the same for all of you.  

See you soon!!

Keep Calm and Hang On...

Well I am going to remain calm for the fact that I finally got to my craft room!  Where did the last few months go?  And in looking at this layout I did... where did the last 3 years go?  I swear I just printed these pictures last week.  Ugh!!
With that said... I am showcasing the newest sketch over at Sketches in Thyme!
This was perfect for my Before and After photos of a family photo op almost gone bad.  The stairs collapsed with all of us on them as the camera auto clicked at just the right time.  Too funny... but as you can see from some of our facial expressions, we all were not laughing.

Sketch # 160 by Rochelle Spears
Come on over to play with SIT 160 for a chance at a fantastic prize!! 
There are 4 sketches to play along with each month.  Lots of inspirations and some awesome Design Team member creations.  You will love it!!
I am also entering my layout in 3 challenges that inspired me to create my page.
First one is Challenge YOUrself # 21 - Use the phrase "Keep Calm..." and add the rest.  Well my title says it all.  "Keep Calm and Hang On."  You have until 9/4 to play along with this one.
You also need to include YOU in the photo.  I'm 3 up on the left with blond hair and a purple sweatshirt.  :)
Second one is Frosted Designs monthly Friday challenge - Use Metal and/or metallics.  My sunshine is silver glitter paper, there is a small whale clip at the top of right photo and there is a metal plaque below left picture that says "year to remember."  You have until 8/31 to enter this one.
Frosted Designs
Third one is Color Throwdown 355 - Use Aqua, Bright Blue and Gray.  And then any neutrals as well.  You have until Monday to play along.
Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time!  :)  And hopefully not too long of a break.  I have a list of things to make for people, so of course I will share them here with all of you.  Have a great day!!
