Creative Scrappers and the idea from Bobunny. The Bobunny challenge was to create a layout about something that you love about yourself or your favourite thing about yourself. Well...what do I luv about myself?? My ability to create, play, inspire and scrap! I love to create. I like to decorate, I like colours, so everything I love to do I bring to scrapbooking. I even like to sing, which again I can do while I scrap. The list goes on and on. I really do love Bobunny for challenging me to do layouts about myself and the things I love, since I so rarely scrap myself. So...these are photos of my scrap room and the place I love to scrap, create and play!

|Lets Capture These Sketches #63|
The challenge at sketches in thyme this week was to use a sketch, any sketch and show your work. I love this one, so I thought I would share it with the girls there!

Frosted Designs which I was excited to try. It's my first challenge with their site. I thought this Oliver line from Basic Grey worked really well with the photo. So thanks to Frosted Design for the great challenge and inspiration.

scrap room, to scraplift something from their November gallery, I thought what a perfect time to start! The word circles are what inspired me to scraplift Melanie Calls layout. I find it hard to do layouts of myself. I either hate the photo or can't find any, lol. I guess I just have to try harder to be in photos ( not being the one behind the camera) and just learning to love myself.

stuck on u sketches that I wanted to try. I love using Basic Grey so I picked the periphery line. I did some cutting of the different papers, made some flowers which I misted and glimmered and then added some bling to dress it up. I haven't found a paper line that their photos don't go with, lol. Thanks so much my friends for stopping by and leaving your sweet and encouraging comments!

scrapbookers-anonymous. It was to use holiday paper for a non-holiday layout! I thought that my halloween paper would be great to use for a photo of a tiger we saw at the zoo. Now I had to come up with a layout idea! I went to creative scrappers and used sketch #129. This was almost too much fun! It's wild...but it was fun!
Creative scrappers I knew I just had to do another fall layout. I have SO much of the origins line I think I have used it for at least 10 layouts already. But you know...I never tire of using it. Maybe because fall layouts are my favourite? lol. For those of you that know me...Fall is my favourite season. I love the colours, the weather, just the beauty of the season. This photo is of our anniversary trip to Banff. Every time we are there, I always have to go to the Bow Falls and take pictures. We met a really nice couple from England who offered to take our picture by the falls...now could I resist that? Thanks so much my scrappy friends for stopping by!
sketches in thyme. I love that the sketch had so many circles. I admit...I went a little wild with the circles but I usually do such muted layouts and this one gave me a chance to use those bright colours. So...thanks for dropping by my friends! Have a wonderful weekend.

These photos are from our trip to Banff this fall. We had just bought a new camera for our anniversary so we spent three days driving in the mountains and playing with the camera. It's great for me because fall layouts are my favourite to do. This was the first two page spread I have done in a long time. I use to do them all the time, but then switched to doing less photos and single spreads. This was for a sketch challenge at the paper variety. Julie Bonner is such a talented artist, so it was a pleasure to work with her sketch. When I look at these photos it reminds me of fall while I'm sitting here watching the snow fall. When is spring? lol.
bobunny blog. The challenge was to do a layout about yourself and you could also use the new sketch! This was just too much fun. I got to use my bobunny stash....and finally scrap my love of pigs!!!!

the paper variety which asked for 3 things..one colour of mist or paint, two flowers and three different patterned papers. I had just the perfect layout. I have tons of flowers which are all glimmer misted (may be hard to see), and I'm a patterned paper lover! This layout is about Nicole and Christopher who have been together since junior high and are now getting married. These are two of their engagement photos. I just love the paper variety and have so much fun playing there!

My minds eye blog. This is the first challenge I have entered there, so we will see what happens! The theme was lessons learned so I chose "love lessons learned" to document how far they have come as a couple. The love of two junior high students to the mature love of two young adults. I just can't wait for their wedding day.
scrap-a-little. This is Helen's sketch #13. I love working with her sketches and the inspiration on her site. I'm very excited to be featured on her blog. My guest spot is December 15 so I'm busy working with the sketch she sent. Have a wonderful day everyone....blessings!
scrap-a-little. This sketch was #35. I am working on a new sketch for the design spot...but I will have to keep that one a secret until December 15!

I asked the kids this year if they still wanted to carve pumpkins seeing as they are 18 and 22 years old. Well...the look on their faces! Of course they wanted to carve pumpkins and they wanted to invite their friends over too. So we planned a pizza pumpkin party and away we went! Chris carved out the "apple logo", Nicole did "toad" from Mario Party, Ryan carved out a skeleton, Shelby did a "Shelby" pumpkin, Meaghan did a "little M" one and Alex stuck to the traditional smiling pumpkin. I got the sketch from My little Sketch Blook, so thank you Liz for the inspiration!
