Continuing to get my Scrap On with Sketchbook 2-Week 2

I wanted to share the next three LO"s I have created based on Kelly Purkey's awesome sketches.

This one is all about the 'Berry Sweet' goodness of our love of strawberries. This was a different kind of LO for me. Pictures & embellies on the bottom half and the top half is more plain and simple. I have to say the simpler, cleaner look LO's are always so much harder for me. I like lots of 'stuff'! Somehow though, for the LO's this week, basic is better.

For this LO I actually used Christmas paper. This paper is from Pink Paislee's Christmas line from last year. These are a few pics of B with his cousins from earlier this Summer. I take pics of them together every year (they still let me!). They are growing up so fast!

This LO is all about the trophy that B did not win. Yes, you read that right, did not win, at his Summer camp award ceremony. B was okay with it that. He was even congratulating all his friends who did get awards. Such a good boy! After the ceremony, one of the councilers asked us to hold on a minute, when he returned he had a brand new backpack, filled with back to school supplies. He said "here is you award buddy!" and gave him a hug. He was so happy! We all were. What a great award for such a great kid.

Three more LO's completed. This makes me so happy! Really enjoying being back in my scrappy groove. Tomorrow shall be my day of rest and then Monday I will get my next sketch and I will be at it again.


Happy Scrappin"!!!

Love the Boys of Summer Layout! SO cool that you used Christmas paper, you're so smart girlie! :)
I am happy you've got your scrappy mojo back!
Alex's gone this week to his dad's, so I'm hoping (crossing my fingers) to get lots done, maybe even do Christine Middlecamp's doilies! We'll see.
Have a great week :)
