My Sweet Little Squoosh

This is a layout of my sweet grandbaby, Emery & I.  She is so precious!  I call her my little squoosh, because, well, she is just so darn squooshable! I used Shimelle's Sketch of the Week, as inspiration for this layout. (you can see the sketch   & products used below.)  

Products:  Little Yellow Bicycle (Up in the Trees & Lovely Day) Pattern Papers and Stickers, Jenni Bowlin pocket, Twine from My Minds Eye, Tim Holtz ChitChat word stickers, Sassafrass Lass & American Craft letter stickers, Martha Stewart Label Stickers, and My Minds Eye brads & label stickers.  You can find all these wonderful supplies at A Cherry On Top.

Amy Tangerine Sketchbook Collection - LOVE!

While we were on vacation in New Braunfels, Texas, I found this awesome Scrapbook store, called Scrapbook N More!  Here is a link to their FaceBook page. I was so excited!  It has been a very long time, since I have gotten to go to an actual SB store!  We don't have any here in Odessa or anywhere even close to us!  Not only was the store terrific, the owner was so sweet!  I asked her if she had any of the new American Craft products.  She said, "As a matter of fact, I just got a few boxes in today.  They haven't been opened, but you can look through them."  And look, I did!  She had the new Amy Tangerine collection, Sketchbook!  SCORE!!!  Bless the owners heart, she hadn't even entered the products into inventory yet.  She did it all while I browsed the store.  Can you say GREAT customer service?  Anyway, I just finished my first layout with this gorgeous collection.  A Cherry on Top has a Becky Fleck sketch challenge going on every couple of weeks.  I submitted this layout for that sketch challenge.  You can see the sketch at the bottom of this post.

New Layouts & Exciting News

Exciting News:  I was asked to be the guest designer at A Cherry On Top for the month of April.  I am so honored and excited!  Whoot! Whoot! :)

Home Layout: I created this layout for the first Becky Fleck sketch challenge at A Cherry On Top.  There is still time to enter!  Don't wait too much longer the challenge ends on March 20th!  I also submitted it as an entry for the Twine Contest at  ACOT.  This one ends March 24th.  The prize is a $100.00 GC to ACOT! 
Here is the sketch by Becky Fleck, I used for the layout above:
Family Fun Layout:  This layout was one of those that I messed with for a LONG time and it  just wasn't working.  I ended up cutting it up and basically starting over.  I was almost ready to throw the whole thing in the trash!  You ever feel that way?  Well, I have to say that I am very glad I didn't toss it.  I left it over night and came back to it the next day.  I looked at it with fresh, un-frustrated eyes and ended up with this.  It is now one of my favorite layouts.  Funny how that happens! :)

Starting Point Layout

Here is another layout using Shimelle's most recent starting point.  I have to say that I love how this turned out! :)  I used mostly Sassfrass Mix and Mend Collection.  I also used some elements from AC Dear Lizzy Collection and My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Collection.

The Great Outdoors

Hey friend! Thank you for stopping by! I just finished uploading a process video for my layout titled, The Great Outdoors. I used an Echo...
