GATOR #football - UPDATED...

Well, we had our game yesterday and I came away with some pretty good pictures of my baby and his first tackle football game!

After much debate, I've decided to use 4 photos instead of one (like shown yesterday)...I'm still not sold on the 4 vs 1 photo soooooo I just might add a 4x4 flip flap so the layout LOOKS like it has one photo but you flip the flap to reveal the 4 smaller photos...

GATORS #football...

On SATURDAY, we wear orange & blue...and we make CUTE layouts using PPPR files to document this special occasion!

Today is the very first TACKLE football's the little things, folks!

Here's my layout using this week's Citrus Twist Kits Sketch...the photo on the layout is actually last year's. I used temporary adhesive to attach to the layout but as soon as we get home this evening from the game, I'm going to print one from today and slap it on there for good! 

THANKS for stopping by!!! Head on over to the PPPR Blog to see the files I used and grab them if you feel inspired!

BOO with Mojo Monday...

Welcome to the WEEK'S END, ladies and gents!!! I hope your Friday is treating you well!

I have a quick JEEPERS CREEPERS card to share with you featuring this week's Mojo Monday Sketch...

The "BOO!" and stars come from the Jeepers Creepers Complements...I took the sticky off the back of the BOO by using Baby Powder then pop-dotted with Thin 3D-Foam Tape to add dimension...I was REALLY TRYING to find somewhere to put those EYE-BALLS from the Jeepers Creepers Assortment but I just couldn't bring myself to take them off the acetate sheet (oh, come know you collect pretty things!)...
I pulled out a retired CTMH stamp set from a couple of Halloweens ago for the inside sentiment...fitting, don't you think!

Thanks for stopping by!

If JEEPERS CREEPERS looks like your kind of thing, head on over to my {{{website}}} and grab you some!

Halloween FUN with Let's Scrap...

I know I've been overloading the blog with JEEPERS CREEPERS lately but this new sketch from Let's Scrap SCREAMED Halloween to me...and what better way to document some FUN Trunk & Treat photos that use the NEW Jeepers Creepers line from CTMH!

Here's a look at the layout without photos (you guys know I love me some blank layouts...hehehehehehe)...
SEE...I told CUTE are all these details...and the colors are so ADORABLE!!! LOVE these glittery stars and that moon in the NEW CTMH COLOR, Lemon is a welcome shock of color!

I love those GLITTERY letters that come with the Jeepers Creepers Complements!
Here's the layout with photos from last year's Trunk & Treat at a local church...all I need to do is add some journalling and some a funny saying in the word bubble of the purple monster on the right...then call her done!

Thanks for stopping by...I'll have more Jeepers Creepers in the days to come!

I hope you'll head on over to the Let's Scrap Blog and see what the other DT Members did with the sketch AND I hope you'll play along with us!

Holiday Expressions - MORE Jeepers Creepers...

Happy HUMP DAY!!!

I'm back sharing more of the FABULOUS artwork using Jeepers Creepers! This artwork is made by the creative team at CTMH and shows a variety of ways you can use the Halloween-themed Collection.

The table sign below uses the Jeepers Creepers WYW (Complements for "scary" and black glitter border at the top) and the Artistry Cricut Collection ("Eat Drink and be")

This card is simple but packs a punch! CTMH used the Artistry Cricut Collection to cut out the sentiment, the Silly Spider Web Stamp Set and some Jeepers Creepers Washi along the bottom...
And, finally...a pocket-style layout using the PML Cards that come with the Jeepers Creepers Collection...the addition of the black glittery bat and stars from the Jeepers Creepers Complements adds the perfect amount of sparkle for this girly scrapbooker...what do you think - glitter or no glitter?

If you'd like to know more about this wonderfully spooky CTMH line, let me know and I'd be more than happy to show you how to document your Halloween this year!

I have a one-page layout based on this week's sketch from Creative Scrappers to share featuring some PPPR Files and my middle son with his "crew"...

It's pretty simple for me but I wanted the images as well as the picture to really stand out...LOVE that I was able to take his IG post and use it as "journalling"...a 16-yr old can be full of so few words but to capture his thoughts on this picture he posted of him and his boys will be a memory he will cherish forever.

Here's a look at the sketch...

Here's a look at the PPPR Files I used...


Weeks 7-12 Pocket Cards (used this to replace the #7 on the jersey with DD's #11)

CTMH Paper Blog Hop - Jeepers Creepers...

Welcome to this month's CTMH Paper Focus Blog Hop featuring...

It's a small hop FULL of inspiration so it shouldn't take you long to hop through and leave some love along the way!

If you've come from Anna's Blog, you're on the right track...keep on hopping 'till you get back to where you started!

I wanted to make a simple card using the paper, complements & adorable washi tape from this collection...
I used Thin 3D-Foam Tape to add dimension to this funny-eyed pumpkin! I could've used the CUTE little eyes from the Jeepers Creepers Assortment but I'm hoarding saving A little tip on using Washi...attach it to cardstock from a quick strip and a stark contrast when the paper you're using is busy!

Thanks for stopping by! Your next stop is Debi's Blog...

Have a GREAT Labor Day!

Fundamental THANKS...

If you're a long-time reader of my blog, you know I LOVE TO use every piece of paper there is...I even taught a class at CTMH's Convention about using the "negative" portion of cuts (back then it was Dimensional Elements).

I was at a Retreat a few weeks ago and my friend and upline, Melissa Sanchez, made the card on the left...after digging in her trash  finding her "left overs", I decided to make the card on the right using the Adventure Fundamentals and an embellishment from the Florence Compliments...

MORAL OF THE STORY: You get 2 for 1 when you buy the NEW Thin Cuts from CTMH!

LOVE letters with Let's Scrap...

Happy SEPTEMBER, everyone!!! Not only does this month bring a crispness to the air (unless you're in Texas then I'm pretty sure it's still going to be, but it also means another DT Term with Let's Scrap Sketches!

This week, we're featuring a 2-page layout but I chose to use only the right side showcasing a few pictures of me and my hubby!

Although this layout was done digitally, I used a color that mimics one of my favorite NEW COLORS from CTMH...Sea Glass!
I hope you'll play along with us this week! Head on over to the Let's Scrap Blog and check out the full sketch and what the other DT Members did with it!
