Gettting My Scrap On

I have really enjoyed getting my scrap on lately due to 2 things, one being Kelly Purkey's (along with the Studio Calico Design Team) Sketchbook 2 class and second being Janna's 52 Weeks of Stres Free Scrapbooking. I fall into a rut sometimes and just need a little "kick in the mojo", if you know what I mean. I have completed 4 LO's in the past week. The first 3 are based on Kellys sketches. As I have said before, I love a great sketch as a starting point. I am always amazed at all the different ways that others work from it. Here is my LO for Sketch One. A couple of pics of B and my nephews and our "Silly Band Swap". Good times indeed!

For the second sketch, I used this random (adorable I must say) pic I took of B (taken with my phone none the less!) at the beach a couple of weeks back. It is one of my favorite pics of him at the moment and I wanted the LO to reflect how fun it is.

This is for the third sketch from the class. I really do love my nephews like they were my own kids. I loved these black and white pics my sister had done of them last year and thought that they would be perfect for this simple LO.

With the LO's above and the one below, I was able to complete 2 more of Janna's challenges. One challenge being:

Try to do 2-3 layouts this week! Serious!

Check! I definately got this one done...thanks to Kelly's class and the other challenge I completed was this:

Try out my easy 5 x 7 scrapbooking! (which you can check out HERE)

Here is my take on it. If you know me well enough, you know I love the Boston Red Sox and you know that Josh Beckett is my favorite player. Josh was injured earlier this year and did not play for a while. He is back now, but in July he was making a couple of re-hab starts with our triple A team in Pawtucket, RI. We were able to check out his first re-hab start. You don't know how excited I was. It was a great day indeed!

PS- I am still using my Teresa Collins Sporst Edition papers for all my sport pages. I LOVE this paper! Perfect for me and my love of NE sports!

I am so happy to have gotten so many pages done! I still have all day today AND tomorrow too. Maybe I wll a get a few more done, now that my mojo is back.
How about you???
TFL & Happy Scrappin'!!!

great layouts! "Beckett" is my favorite! So that is what those funky shaped rubber bands are for...I see them all over in stores...I guess my kids ar eolder and it hasn't caught on with them yet.

Denise said... are doing fabulous. Wish I got my act together and joined in on the sketch course. I have the itch to scrap and you just made it itch more. :o) Great layouts!

Dawn, you always amaze me at how many layouts you get done when you're on fire. You always do such a great job with sketches, so that class is perfect for you.

I definitely can't wait to get back to scrapping when I have a little more time.
