Thinking Through Design Fussy Cutting

Today is a new challenge or "thought" as we like to call it at Thinking Through Design.  This week is about fussy cutting.  When I saw this thought I was excited as I do a lot of fussy cutting!  My scrappy friends tease me about how much I cut out and are always commenting on how patient I am to do it.  But there's something about cutting those fun designs out that I love.  So here is my take on this thought:

So for this I used Simple Stories Fabulous line.  I just loved the colors of this line and knew I must have it.  I fussy cut the journaling block with the flowers, the pink border strip, the little pennants and the little bird in my title.  I'd love to your take on this thought.  Be sure and share it with us TTD!

My Creative Sketches & Memorable Seasons LSS Week 2

I finally found some time to play a little.  I created this layout using this fun sketch from My Creative Sketches. 
Here is my take on it:

At Memorable Seasons they are on their 2nd week of Last Scrapper Standing.  Though I found out I wasn't eligible for the grand prize I wanted to play along anyway.  The challenge was to use borders or a banner.  Here is my take:

Thanks for stopping by to check things out.  More to come in a day or so.

Memorable Seasons Last Scrapper Standing

Well it's that time again.  Memorable Seasons has started their Last Scrapper Standing competition.  I love this contest and have found in the past that some of my favorite layouts have come from this contest. 

So this week's challenge is to create a layout using Red/Yellow and Blue.  Here is my take. 

Hopefully I'll make it to the next round.  Be sure and come on over and check things out.  Be sure and mention that I sent you as our names will go in twice for the weekly draw.  Oh...and I combined this challenge with one at Paper Secrets to use eyelets.  They were perfect to add a pop of yellow on my blue paper.

The Scrapping continues

I have been on a scrappy roll lately.  I've been enjoying many challenges from several sites.  I've found a few new ones I played along with and some I've been lurking but never found time to create.  So here are 2 more that I created: Memorable Seasons there was a challenge last month to take a photo of us right we were in our everyday.  Then Tami challenged us to scrap that photo.  I almost didn't as I don't love this photo of me.  But I finally decided to give it a try. Finding paper that worked was the hardest part of this challenge as nothing looked right with my shirt.  I finally decided on this MME I've had for awhile.  I used a sketch from Colorful Creations featuring a sketch for their Guest DT member. 

Then I moved on to Audrey's challenge at Memorable Seasons which was to create a layout using a black and white photo with bright colors.  I don't have a lot of black and white but found this one taken for my daugther's senior photos.  I used another sketch from Color Creations from their sketch a thon and combined it with the  One Little Word challenge at Paper Secrets - YOU.  I love how this turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.  I look forward to some fun June challenges. Have a wonderful weekend!
