Cocoa Daisy Spring Crop

I have to admit that I was a little sad when I read that there was an online crop with so many exciting Challenges as we were away with friends for the weekend and I wouldn't be in my scrapbook room....

but to my surprise the DT gave a week to submit the Challenge's. Yeah! I was still able to participate. I decided to do a layout with Liam's Minor Hockey Week Photos because they would work with the "Sketchy" challenge sketch. To my surprise, as I was journalling I discovered that they also could be entered in the "One Night in Bangkok" Challenge!

Family Frame Art

I bought this frame 2 years ago at Pier One.
it has always been easy to change it as the season's change.
I keep all the previous groupings of pictures in a box so that
if i'm short on time I can just change it up with last years
selections for that season.
This weekend I was working on many "spring cleaning"
items in my scrapbook room and made a new set with memories
from Family Summer Vacations we have had over the last few years.

National Scrapbooking Day

So today I decided to retreat in my "playroom" for as long as possible :) which meant getting up early before anyone else!
During my "inspiration warmup" I stumbled across this website for the first time... will certainly be a regular stop for me now.....  with some scraps that I had from discontinued SU Designer Series Paper and $1 Store butterflies I was inspired to make these beautiful cards.... cant wait to have a card class with my gal pals!

A Royal Challenge

I am just starting to actually try sketch and other challenges on my favorite websites. This process is getting me to dig out some photographs that I have been wanting to get scrapped and journaled for quite some time. This is one of my favorite photo's from our wedding, I am in the midst of trying to get a wall of framed filled for the stairway walls coming up to my scrapbook room. I have had this photo and frame sitting on the floor for months!
Finally it is done and I can get it hung on the wall! I used papers & chipboard from Cocoa Daisy's April kit, a few old stickers and I was inspired to complete it for Cocoa Daisy's "A Royal Challenge".
