This is my latest project for Use Your Stuff using the following mood board as inspiration. My daughter took a variety of pictures of herself in her new favorite outfit on Easter a few weeks back. I featured a black and white version of the picture in a previous project. For this project, I decided to use the color version. The aqua of the pool and orange and pink of the patio furniture reminded me of elements found in the mood board. To pull this project together, I used a variety of papers from Scrapbook Customs's "Tribal" collection along with buttons and butterflies from my stash of embellishments. I also used a sketch from my former design team 2 Broke Girls as inspiration as well.

This is my latest project for Creative Inspiration's Thursday Stash challenge. Each week we are asked to rummage through our stash of scrapping supplies and feature a product that we may not use regularly on a project. For this challenge, I chose ink. I love using ink on projects, especially when I'm working with black and white pictures. I like how it gives the project a vintage feel which I especially wanted to do with this picture. My daughter bought a new outfit for Easter, and was very excited to have her picture taken wearing it. I also decided to use one of my favorite Sunday Sketches to accent the picture. I used a variety of papers from The Paper Studio's "Ninth Street" collection making sure to ink all the corners. A few black flowers with rhinestone centers & alphabet stickers from Doodlebug Design's "Abigail" collection were the final touches to pull this project together.

NEW YORK CITY
Let's Scrap using the following sketch. My daughter's Media Arts class took a field trip to New York City two weeks ago. In four days, my daughter saw four live tapings of popular US television shows, a Broadway play, and all sorts of landmarks throughout the city. She had the time of her life. I dare say this was the highlight of her entire four years in High School. So I decided to feature some of her pictures and memorabilia on this project using Kaisercraft's "Let's Go" collection.

Use Your Stuff. This week's challenge was to create a project with a weather theme. I was trying to decide what type of layout I wanted to do while I was hiding in my car from a torrential rainstorm before a soccer game. My daughter's soccer season has been very....wet to say the least. But the strange thing is, the nastier the weather, the better her team does. I was watching her walk towards the stadium with her soccer gear tucked safely away in her most useful piece of equipment this season; the Hefty trash bag. I quickly snapped a picture of her after she tossed her trash bag over her shoulder and thought, "What a perfect subject matter for a weather related layout!" To pull this project together, I used a variety of papers including cloud paper from Bella Blvd's, "Simply Spring" line and soccer paper from Bo Bunny's "Game On" collection. Finally, I was inspired by the following sketch from my former design team "2 Broke Girls" when organizing this project.

Creative Inspirations using the following sketch. For this project, I used one of my favorite pictures taken of my daughter and her best friend at their senior prom. I heard all those clichés when she was younger; that we will blink and she will be off to college. It's not a cliché; it is truth. These two have grown up together. I can't believe we are at this point. I hope these two always remember the fun they've had together; the support they've given to each other throughout the years. I hope that these two always have each other to lean on throughout their adult lives. Since this sketch called for one, larger picture, I decided it would be the perfect picture for this project. To pull out the bluish hues in my daughter's prom dress, I used a sheet of paper from 49 and Market's "Sweet Reflections" line along with the collection's corresponding embellishments.

BASKETFULL OF JOY
Let's Scrap using the following sketch. For this week's challenge, I was inspired by Easter pictures I took of my daughter and her cousins coloring Easter eggs. It's become a tradition that the kids get together the day before Easter and see who can make the prettiest egg. I don't know what we did different with the coloring this year, but almost every egg we dyed was a vibrant color. And they tasted quite good too when they became egg salad (although it was a funky colored egg salad...) To pull this project together, I used a variety of papers from Authentique's "Abundant" collection.
THE PERFECT SUMMER DAY
Sketchy Board Challenge using the following sketch. For this project, I was inspired by the colors and the bricks in the background. Last summer, my daughter and her good friends went to a local town known for the art scene. She had her picture taken in front of a colorful brick wall, and I immediately thought of it when I saw the inspiration for this sketch. To pull this project together, I used a variety of scrap papers I had on hand from Bella Blvd's "Illustrated Faith" collection along with a sheet of white brick paper from Michaels's "Recollection" line.
