Let's Scrap using the following sketch. This time, I was inspired by my dogs. I take so many pictures of them. Probably because my humans hardly ever let me take their picture anymore. My dogs never complain. These are a few of my favorites that were taken within the past year. To pull this project together, I used a variety of papers from Authentique's "Companions" line.

Use Your Stuff. This week's theme is to make a project featuring a "furry friend." So I decided to feature my favorite furry fire dog; my chihuahua Lila. My oldest daughter decided to drive her dog to the fire house to visit her Dad. My dog was in heaven. She had so much fun running around the fire house and posing on the fire trucks. We seriously think she was depressed when she got home. To pull this project together, I used a brick paper from Ella & Viv to replicate a fire house and Reminisce Diamond Plate paper like what is found on a fire truck.

Creative Inspiration using the following sketch. I got to check one of my items off my bucket list last year. I always wanted to go to Waco, Texas to see Chip & Joanna Gaines's "Magnolia Silos." Last October, I got to go with a few friends. This is one of my favorite pictures I took while there. I'm not one to take pictures of myself, but I had to document this particular event. To pull this project together, I used a variety of Pebbles "Simple Life" collection.

Creative Inspiration's "Thursday Stash" challenge. For the challenge, we are to use something in our stash that we don't typically use and highlight the item on our project. I decided to dip into my large stash of snowflake die cuts. I love snowflakes. I love to use them on projects, but typically I only need to use one or two of them. However, when you buy die cuts at a store, the package typically has WAY more than you actually need. So I decided to continue using a pack of snowflake die cuts I bought a while ago when creating this project. And the beauty of a snowflake, each one is different, so you don't need the same die cut throughout the project. A win/win for this page! To pull the layout together, I used a previous sketch featured on the Creative Inspiration Blog on November 4, 2018 and a variety of papers from Crate Paper's "Snow & Cocoa" collection.

Let's Scrap using the following sketch. My daughter is a Senior this year, and I've been a bit reflective the past few months. This sketch with its pictures lined up I thought would be perfect to highlight pictures of my daughter throughout her elementary school years. To pull this project together, I used a variety of papers and cardstock die cuts from Kaisercraft's "Documented" collection.
Sketchy Boards Challenge using the following sketch. One of my family's holiday traditions is to go to a local destination called The Golden Lamb that is the oldest fully functioning hotel and restaurant in the state of Ohio. Every Christmas, they decorate it to look like colonial times. Its is simply fabulous! Everywhere you go in the building is a Kodak moment. So to pull this project together, I used a variety of Authentique's "Nostalgia" papers.

Sketches in Thyme using the following sketch. My dogs are such great sports. My husband keeps bringing home elf costumes, and my poor dogs keep getting dressed up in them. So in honor of my angry "elves," I decided to feature them in this project. To pull this layout together, I used a variety of papers from Authentique's "Nostalgia" line.
