ScrapFIT, Sketchy Thursdays & My Creative Sketches!

I have so much to share today! First up is the newest Workout at ScrapFIT. This challenges is all about NUMBERS. You can use them any way you want...in the title, the background, the journaling...endless possibilities!

Here is what I created. I used a sketch from My Creative Scrappers. I wanted to play off the blues & pinks in the pictures. This was a great sketch to use up scraps! I misted some light pink on the sides of my background paper.

I hadn't made any lollipop flowers in a while. I think they are so fun!


Check out this month's prize!! It's from the Paper Bakery.



Have you heard of the The Paper Bakery Kit Club? The Paper Bakery offers a monthly project-based kit each month, anything from a mini album to home decor.

I also wanted to share my entry for the GDT at Sketchy Thursdays. In addition to using the provided sketch, the rules also stated to use at least 5 leaves and a list of things you are thankful for. I was in the mood to scrap this silly but cute photo of Paige last year, gnawing on her crib. I knew the title I wanted to use, and I did my best to fit the criteria for the challenge.


Here is my layout.

I created these simple flowers using my Cuttlebug. I love flower dies! Add a little ink and wrinkle them up, and there you have a flower :)


I just had to pull out the Create a Critter cartridge and whip up a cute little beaver to add to this page! (Well, I'm calling him a wood chuck...haha!) He matched my title so perfectly :)


I also created a layout for the latest contest over at My Creative Sketches. I loved the sketch and couldn't wait to scrap it!


Here is my layout. I used only two papers from AdornIt! I loved the color combos on this one sheet of patterned paper. I used Kraft background paper & some green cardstock to create my leaves.

These pleated flowers are SO easy to make!


Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
