Hey everyone, it's sketch day at My Scraps and More Sketches!  I know you might not want to admit it but winter and snow will be coming soon.  When you live in Eastern Canada you learn to love winter. I mean we have about 4 months of snow so we might as well enjoy it.

Here is the sketch we had this week!

And my take on the sketch!

You can see the whole reveal here and don't forget to play along!

Let love shine

Hey everyone, today with a new LO for the Cut Shoppe.  I am very blessed that I have a daughter who loves to get her picture taken.  She is very photogenic!  What more could a scrapbooker ask for?

I had a lot of fun with this LO!

Sketch fun at Paper Issues!

Hey everyone, have you seen that Paper Issues now has a monthly sketch challenge??  How exciting!  Here is this months' sketch:

I had so much fun with this sketch!

Thanks for stopping by!

October reveal at Scrapbook Nerd!

Hey everyone, I'm back today with my October projects for Scrapbook Nerd using Teresa Collins' Life Emporium collection.  Have you checked out the beautiful colors of this collection yet?  It's so pretty and soft.
The nerds challenged us to sew on our LO's this month.  For my first project I just sewed on some simple X's on the sides of my triangle die cuts.  (This cut file is free in the store!!)

For my next LO I wanted to show how versatile this collection is, even though the colors are soft it can still be used for boy LO's.

I've seen a lot of LO's lately where there is stitching across the words or title.  I tried it and I really like it!

And finally I used the WeR stitched word template and it was so easy to use and I love the look of the stitched word!

MS&M blog hop

Hello and welcome to the My Scraps & More Sketch Blog blog hop!! Today, each design team member has created a CARD sketch to celebrate World Card Making Day. That’s TEN different sketches!!!

There will be TWO prizes given out for the blog hop: 

1. One person will win a $10 gift certificate to the store just for commenting on one of the designers blog posts. I will choose one of the DT members blogs and then choose a random commenter from that post. 

2. Another winner will be chosen from all the card sketch entries uploaded to the In Linkz on the My Scraps & More Sketch Blog. For each card sketch, create a DIFFERENT link up. So if you complete all 11 sketches, you will need to do 10 link-ups! (On your card link please be sure to mention whose sketch you used and link back to the My Scraps & More Sketch blog. If you’d like you can also leave the DT member a comment with a link to your card so they can see what you did with their sketch.)

Here is the prize for the card sketch blog hop:

All comments and card sketches for the Blog Hop must be linked up by Monday, October 6th at 12 pm EST.

BUT, if you don’t complete all the card sketches by Monday, that’s OK….you can still upload them through the end of the month for the monthly prize drawing on the sketch blog! The more sketches you do, the more chances you have to win!

Here is the monthly blog prize:

And now let me share my sketch and card with you:

Be the you you want to be

Hey everyone, I'm back today with a fun and bright LO for the Cut Shoppe.  I tend to shy away from bright colors but once in a while I dare to go bright and I always love my LO when I do.  It's always fun to step out of your comfort zone once in a while!

A few close ups of the files:

Here are the fun files I used on my LO:

Did you know that new files are added to the store every week?  Make sure to check back often!

Some new stuff!

I had some free time this weekend so I decided to participate in a few scrapbooking challenges.  The first was a challenge issued by a Paper Issues group member.  She challenged us to scraplift a LO from her inspiration pinterest board.

Here is the LO I lifted:

And here is my take on it:

Then I played with a challenge at My Scraps and More where we had to use the word passion in our LO.  I also used sketch 277 at Creative Scrappers!

Finally I also did a one hour challenge at Scrapbook Nerd.  I'm actually starting to enjoy these challenges!
