WHOGas catchup!

Facebook group challenge has me in Round 3 of the Who Gives a Scrap June Challenges.  I said I was going to scrap 25 layouts this month and since it's almost the end of the month, I had to get in gear and get some layouts done since I've been busy with other stuff and haven't really squeezed crafty time in (I think I'm only up to #16)...but, today is the exception and I've gotten to scrap for a few hours!

I may fix this one later, the paper at the top is bugging me!

I promise that starting next month, I'm going to stop using my crappy cell phone to take photos and to break out the real cameras that are getting dusty (shame shame shame)...will be making myself a photobox as well...My summer projects have accumulated and my studio has been missing me so my goal for July is to decrease the list of unfinished scrapbook and crafty projects!

Make it Monday (on a Tuesday)

The first sketch for June over at the Memory Nest for Make It Monday has been up all month but since I had company over the weekend and did some family fun, I'm just getting time today to craft and finish up the rest of my June challenges.  Make It Monday No. 89  by Leslie has been on my list and I tried, make that REALLY TRIED to stick to it!

documenting our "kids in the kitchen" time!

from Scrappin Sunday

Yesterday was the first day I actually committed to trying to break out some papers and scrap.  I did manage to get a few layouts (maybe 6?) done in between some other things. These ones were just for me...I'll post the challenge ones I created later this evening.  Using hoarded stash of course :)



Catching you up on stuff!

I've been pretty busy with the kids only being out of school for a week...help!! Here's some recap:
Hot temps and Special Olympics Summer Games; we're grateful for those awesome bleacher tent thingees and lots of cold water and sunscreen.  I thought we were gonna come home with a serious case of sunburn but thank goodness we didn't; that sun was crazy intense!!  The only things we brought home were two silver medals and a ribbon!!!

next,thrift shop finds for an upcoming Pinterest project :)
Hobby Lobby trip and getting seriously confused:  4th July, fall, Halloween and Christmas?
and of course, taking kids out to one of their fav places:  Cracker Barrel :)
So there ya have some of our week one of summer....

Playing along with Sketch~N~Scrap!

In between life gigs, I'm always squeezing in some scrapping IF I can.  This month, I've started out with some new challenge blogs to jumpstart my June mojo. First stop?  Sketch~N~Scrap!  Their June 1st sketch by Lisa Hidy:


Even though the picture isn't perfect, it still captured how amazing the day was celebrating sister's HS graduation!   Used up some vintage Maggie Holmes and also some of my vellum scraps that were begging to be used.

I got ahead of myself for NSD

I just knew that I was going to have free time to scrap the weekend away..but I got ahead of myself because mom duties called....one sick child and moving out of the dorm made for a long day of running around with both kids and I did a total of 5 layouts!  A measly 5...my full intention was to knock out like maybe 15??  Oh well, 5 is better than none...and no time to even get my Counterfeit Kit together...{sigh}  But on that note, I did do one challenge (so far-I still have 3 more days to add more) from our friends at Scrap Our Stash-my old stomping ground!
Their Challenge #2 is the May "Jump Start" sketch from the Scrap Room (with a twist!)

MY TAKE:  The twist was to use FLAIR-my background paper and my flair both came from an old (I know, I'm a kit hoarder)  Clique Kit- June 2016 to be exact!  The background paper was a CK exclusive-: Blue Star (Designed by Inna Moreva) and the flair was part of the kit too but I'm not sure who made it.
