Just Because

I managed to finish a few layouts a week ago...

This layout is another clean and simple layout, and inspired by Sketch #96 at Inspired Blueprints. Since it was just summer on our part of the globe, my photos are mostly from our vacations. This one is about quiet time at the beach.  Here's the sketch if you want to play along. I love the sketch! So simple yet so full of possiblities!

This next layout is a just because challenges, no sketch for this one just pure scrapbooking FUN!

Obviously, I'm having fun playing with my Silhouette. Thanks to freebies too! I found these free cut files through Pinterest. The "so very special" sentiment is from Lilith's Scrapbooking Venture but I can't seem to trace the source of the "lovely" frame. Sorry...but it is a free cut file too!

My guilty pleasure is...

This month's theme at Once Upon A Sketch is all about guilty pleasures. I think mine would be travelling. Here's a layout about one of our recent out of town trips this summer. The sketch is lovely as well and I really enjoyed playing with my newly acquired Silhouette.

I'm also very grateful for Pinterest for helping me find Birds Cards where I got this free background cut file!
Stay tuned...I have more to share!

Winter Colors

The June challenge at Scrap the Girls is up! It's all about winter colors....and it's definitely up to your own interpretation.The first colors that popped into my head were blue and white which reminds me of snow but you can actually use other colors. Here's my layout....

I hope you are not sick of my ballet pics just yet...again, thanks for the visit and hope to see your layout at Scrap the Girls!

A Star is Born

My DD Julia loves to dance and every summer she takes part in a ballet recital. I was able to scrap a photo of her taken during their photo shoot. My inspiration was Prima's May Build a Sketch. This layout is another proof that I am a simple scrapper...just a few embelishments and I consider my layout done!

Thanks for the visit!
