A bit more sketchy fun...

Everyone knows that I love a good sketch. Some sketches grab my attention right away and others I look at as a challenge. I looked at the one below as a challenge. It looks so simple, right? That is where I have a problem. I have a hard time with simple. I like lots of 'stuff'. The sketch below is last weeks 'Sunday Sketch' from the Studio Calico blog:
Here is what I came up with. I love this pic that Steve took of Bryant. Steve won some Red Sox tickets and took B, not me. That's okay though. They tried their hardest to get noticed by our local tv announcers to let me know that they were thinking about me. Love that!
Though Kelly Purkey's Sketchbook Four class ended this week. I have a few in process and I still have few more to work with. Very inspired! This layout is a couple of pics I took last summer of B and his cousin Ben. They look and act more like brothers, rather than cousins. They really are the coolest-ha! I found the perfect papers called 'A Boys Life' by EP. The colors and designs were perfect, cause you know that I am all about the matchy, matchy.

More projects to share soon!

Happy Scrappin'!!!

Sketch #8 - You'll shoot your eye out kid!

I have had these pics of Bryant for a while now.
My Dad has been teaching him how to handle a gun properly.
Bryant is a bit obsessed with guns.
I think that it has to do with all the 'shoot em' up' video games out there...                                            
This sketch from Kelly was perfect.
Simple enough to really showcase all the pics
the 'City of Lights' & 'Sorbonnne' kits from Studio Calico
had the perfect colored papers.
I really am all about the matchy, matchy-ha!
I love how this layout came out!

More to share tomorrow...

Happy Scrappin'!!!

Sketch #1 - Art Show

Mom's favorite had a piece of his artwork
 in the Arts Alive art show last Spring.
This show is a combination of art work
from many students, from multiple schools,
in the area and held at our local highschool.
We were so proud that Bryant
was asked to have one of his projects
in the show.

Here is his artwork up close:

Oh yea...and I had to scrap about it!
I have had these pics for a while,
waiting for just the perfect layout.
I love the sketch I used by Kelly Purkey.
Sketch #1
This sketchbook four class really
has inspired me.
I mean really,
who doesn't love a great sketch?

Happy Scrappin'!!!

Sketch #6 - So Full of Wonder

This layout is my take on sketch six 
for Kelly Purkey's
Sketchbook four class.
I am on a roll!
I got to play with Studio Calico's
newest kit, 'City of Lights'.
It is so pretty!
Our kitty Theo is an indoor cat,
and a part time outdoor cat.
We bought him a little harness and leash
and he loves it.
He is a little timid, but always amazed.
The birds always catch his attention...ha!
I took this cute pic of him,
one of the first times he went outside.
I love his look of wonder.

I think that this may be my favorite layout so far. :)

Happy Scrappin'!!!

Sketch #4 - Aeropostale

Bryant has been asking to get an Aeropostale sweatshirt for a while now.So for Easter this year, we decided this would be the perfect gift, since he no longer believes in the Easter bunny (insert sad face here.) They grow up so fast. He also wanted a few t-shirts too...
Imagine his surprise when he woke up Easter morning to all these goodies! I love this pic of him with all his new fashionable goodies. Yes, off course I had to scrap about it!
This is my take on sketch #4 from Kelly Purkey's Sketchbook Four class over at Studio Calico. I have been so inspired by this class. It definately has brought my mojo back. The sketches are really great and the takes on them have been amazing!

More to share soon.

Happy Scrappin'!!!

Sketch #3 - Part Time Bubba

I love this paper.
Journey by Authentique.
I used it for my blog banner.
The colors are amazing!
I also used it for this layout.
Do you remember?
I have used it, again,
on this layout.
The second layout (above) is my take on sketch four
from Kelly Purkeys Sketchbook Four class,
over at Studio Calico.
This sketch was so much fun.
I love this pic of B.
It was taken at his first live concert.
Jason Aldean & Eric Church.
He has been surrounded by all kinds of music,
his whole life.
Country, rock, pop, etc.
He likes it all.
A little bit country &
a little bit rock-n-roll.
Part time rocker,
Part time bubba.
I love it.

Happy Scrappin'!!!

Sketch #2 - Enjoy YOUR Day

I love all things Christy Tomlinson.
From her Scarlet Lime kits that I have enjoyed for years,
to her creative online art classes.
She is very talented
she makes it look so easy.
She has finally come out with some products of her own!
Starting with this line,
'She Art'
created for Pink Paislee.
I love it.
No. I really LOVE it!!!
I finally got my hands on some of the papers
and was able to create this layout,
based on Sketch 2
from Kelly Purkeys Sketchbook Four class
over at Studio Calico.
I love this pic of B,
taken on his birthday last month.
Having a March birthday
is always hit or miss with the weather.
This year it was cool & a bit gray,
but that did not dampen the mood!
Bryant loved his 'Angry Bird' balloon bouquet.
Drab background.
Colorful kid.
Great sketch.
Fun layout.

 Happy Scrappin'!!!

Got Flowers?

Papercrafting is my obsession.
I love to create.
For me.
For my family.
For my friends.
That is what it is all about, right?
I made this this for my friends Birthday.
She loved it.
It made her smile.
That makes me happy.
Here is another view.
Everything used to make this, I had in my stash.
Except the flowers.
The flowers I bought separately.
Basically all it cost me was my time.
They say handmade gifts are the best.
I tend to think so too.
Plus I love to make things for my friends & family.
It's what I do.
It's what I love to do.

Happy Scrappin'!!!
