Sketch N Scrap - June 15th, 2022 Reveal - Sketch #251 by Lori Stroup

  Good morning my fellow scrapping friends - 

It's time for the June 15th Sketch Reveal @ Sketch N Scrap. 

Today I'm working with Sketch #251 by Lori Stroup @ Sketch N Scrap

I absolutely loved working with this particular sketch! As you can see though, I did take some liberties with it! After mirroring the sketch and using 2 photos instead of one, it all came together pretty quickly. . .Lori's sketch was super easy for me to convert to my 8-1/2 x 11 needs, and I already have a couple more layouts planned with this particular sketch.

This layout is of my beautiful granddaughter - Everly. She lost her first tooth the night before and the Tooth Fairy brought her $5 dollars. Her mom took her to Five Below the next day after school to pick out a toy - and since she's all into Minecraft right now that's what she picked out!

Just like the title says – today only happens once, and in your case, this is soooo true. Yesterday you lost your very first tooth and today you spent your very first “Tooth Fairy Loot”! The Tooth Fairy left you $5 for your tooth – not too shabby if you ask me! Then after school your mom took you to Five Below and let you pick out your very own toy and let you pay for it all by yourself! Your toy choice?? A Minecraft Mini Figurine – Attacking Alex!

Stick It Down - June 2022 Single Page Sketch Reveal - Like Father Like Son

     Hello! Hello! Happy Monday my fellow scrappy friends -
 what's everyone up to on this fine day??

For me, it's a typical workday. . . and my final reveal day as a 
member of the Stick It Down Team!

So, with that being said - I'm super excited to share with you my layout this month using another sketch by the very talented Laura Rumble.

 This month I chose to scrap a picture of my son Garrett and his dad from one of our recent "pick up" days. . . now that Garrett is over 18, I don't have to meet his dad "halfway" any longer for visitation drop offs. . . If Garrett goes to North Carolina, then his dad comes the whole way to get him. I usually will help out on the return trip and meet them at the Pennsylvania / Maryland Rest Area. Three hours there, and three hours back. This past trip was awful, awful, awful. . . the snow and sleet were a nightmare! I white knuckled it the whole way there and back, and my windshield wipers even tried to freeze up on me . . .but it was all worth it in the end - Garrett was home safe and sound! 
I really do love the sketch this month!! When I saw the triangles, I went to work immediately creating a cut file that would work for my 8-1/2 x 11 needs. *Please don't look too hard or you'll see all of the uneven triangles & spacing - but hey, this girl is still learning! Wanna know what the best part of this layout is - I used up a bunch of patterned paper scraps! Woot! Woot!

Sketch N Scrap - June 1st, 2022 Reveal - Sketch #250 by Lisa Hidy

 Good morning my fellow scrapping friends - 

It's time for the June 1st Sketch Reveal @ Sketch N Scrap. 

Today I'm working with Sketch #250 by Lisa Hidy @ Sketch N Scrap

This particular sketch was super fun to work with, and my layout came together pretty quickly. . . I absolutely loved the look of the huge banner, and the multiple patterned paper requirements. I'll definitely be re-using this sketch again. . .  . . .and like all of Lisa's sketches, this one was super easy for me to convert to my 8-1/2 x 11 needs.

This layout is of my beautiful grandbabies - Everly and Harrison. They tend to sleep in when they're vising over the summer, so I like to peek in on them while they're sleeping before I head out to work each morning. . .
I do so love these two - to the moon and back
