Here is my latest layout for 2 Broke Girls.  Being the seasonal scrapbooker that I am who has a slight addiction to Doodlebug paper, this layout fit exactly what I had in mind with this picture.  These are my girls five years ago when they were not only willing to have their picture taken, but also willing to play around at our favorite pumpkin patch.  Doodlebug always has the cutest papers, and I want to include them all on my layouts so I felt this sketch definitely allowed me to use a variety of papers.

This week's RCS challenge is about the 80's movie "Pretty in Pink."  Not only are we doing a shout out to this John Hughes 80's classic, but also for all those families who have been effected by breast cancer.  Since October is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we decided "Pretty in Pink" would be the perfect theme for the start of this month.  I have to thank my lucky stars that breast cancer has not impacted a member of my immediate family.  So I decided to focus on the most important woman in my life; my Mom.  This picture was taken Christmas 2011.  And even though it was a Christmas picture, I decided to use a Bo Bunny Valentine paper to highlight the picture.  Although I built the page on brown paper, I think the pink makes this special picture pop.

For this Child's Play Challenge, the toy inspiration was the game Yahtzee.  Since this game is all about numbers, I instantly thought of this picture of my daughter flexing her toes on her Dad's backpack. He's a member of Ohio Task Force One, a FEMA Search and Rescue team, and had just gotten back from an overnight training.  He had thrown his backpack on our couch, and the next thing we knew, we saw 10 toes perched on top of the backpack and one chillaxed little girl glad her Daddy was home.

This is my latest design for 2 Broke Girls Scraps.  I love the Walking Dead, and my daughter and I took a wonderful tour of all the places Season 1 was filmed with the Atlanta Movie Tours Company.  (If you are in the Atlanta area and love The Walking Dead, you have to check out this tour!).  Anyway, I took a variety of pictures, and thought that layout 20 would be a perfect way to highlight a few of my favorites from the trip.  (Walking Dead fans, do you recognize these places?)  I used creepy paper from Carta Bella for this layout along with a few found objects from Hobby Lobby and my trusty Cat's Eye Chestnut Roan stamp to "age" my layout.


Here is my latest layout for RCS challenge.  The theme was the movie "Kindergarten Cop," & I decided to take this challenge very literally.  I used Echo Park's Paper and Glue collection to highlight these pictures of my girls on their first day of Kindergarten.  I used a layout sketch from my other blog family Two Broke Girl's Scrap to design this layout.  And voila! Day 1 of Kindergarten has been immortalized!

This was the latest layout I did for Child's Play challenge.  The inspiration this week was gears.  When I think of gears, I think of a car.  And when I think of a child's toy that's a car, I think of my girls' purple Disney Princess mobile.  They were cruising around my neighborhood having a blast.  My older daughter was doing donuts in our cul-de-sac when she looked at me and said, "Mom, I drive like a Cullen...."  I was cracking up laughing!  She sure did perform some "Edward saving Bella moves in his Volvo" maneuvers.  Anyway, despite being girls, I used Pebbles Inc "Love you more boy" paper to create this layout.  In addition, a few stars cut out from my cricut, some found objects that look like car parts from Tim Holtz, and this layout came together fast!
