This is my latest layout for Stick it Down Sketches.  My daughters just finished a very busy fall sports season.  Now that I have some time to breathe,  I wanted to highlight both of their activities using this Graphic 45 "Good 'Ole Sport" paper line.  I loved the vintage feel of this paper, but also threw in some modern dimensional stickers to keep the layout feeling young.

This is my latest layout for RCS where the inspiration this time around was the movie "Julie & Julia."  In other words...food!  I loved this line of kitchen theme paper called "Homemade with Love" by Carta Bella and thought it would be perfect to use not only for this challenge, but also for these pictures of my daughter making herself a batch of chocolate chip cookies!

This is my latest creation for Child's Play Challenge.  The inspiration for this half of the month was Hot Wheels.  I love this picture I took of my daughter with her chihuahua puppy!  I came home from work and found her cruising the neighborhood with the dog.  People were coming out of the houses to look at my silly girl!  She definitely thought she was hot stuff on her hot big wheel!

This is my latest creation for Red Carpet Studio.  The inspiration this time around was the movie Marley and Me; in other words make a project featuring an animal.  I take pictures of my dogs as much as I take pictures of my actual children.  This one was a personal favorite I could not wait to scrap!  My oldest daughter had come home from school, curled up on my bed with me, & started to play with her phone.  My chihuahua Lila Lucille can't stand it if someone is on the bed with me, (I'm her human), and splayed herself out like this hoping for a belly rub but enjoying the company..  I'm thinking she was in doggy heaven chillaxin with her big human sister!  I fell in love with the colors & chevrons in this new line of paper from Ella and Viv and decided it would be perfect to showcase this picture of two of my three favorite girls.  (The other girl wasn't home from school yet, otherwise I'm sure she would've been in he mix of this cuteness as well!)

This is my latest creation for Child's Play Challenge. For this challenge, we teamed up with Pixels and Paper, & were asked to use the following picture found below as our guide.  (Basically, we needed to include the following items on our layout; 3 patterned papers, gold, an animal, bling, & something at least 1 year old or older).  Well...with Christmas on the horizon, I had the perfect "animal" picture I wanted to use....the pink nightmare!  My family LOVES A Christmas Story.  We are one of those families that leaves the TBS A Christmas Story marathon on all day Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  A few years back (pics are my 1 year or older part of the challenge) on our way home from my brother in law's in Erie, PA, we stopped in Cleveland, OH to visit the actual house where the movie was filmed.  My husband was horsing around and decided to pose in the cut out of Ralphie's rabbit outfit his aunt made him for Christmas.  (The animal).  I hit up my stash of Christmas patterned paper, and picked these three from October Afternoon along with gold ribbon and holly bling (the berries are red sequins).  Overall, I was quite please at how quickly this layout came together, although I'm not sure how thrilled my husband will be in his pink rabbit outfit on my blog....Oh well.... ;0)
