September Scrappy Friends Challenge 2015

Hello my friends, hope everyone is having an amazing September!!  I was able to get some crafting time with some amazing creative women at our monthly group, Design Divas, this weekend. I did more socializing than crafting, and I still had so much fun. I wanted to share a layout that I made to enter in the September 2015 Scrappy Friends Challenge.

1)In Rochelle's challenge, I choose to use Pennants, School theme, and Shape punch. Also used Notebook paper, numbers, and Shape punch.

2) I used Brenda's beautiful layout

3) I used Kelly's Color Challenge.  I was lucky to have numbers paper that had green, brown, red, orange, and yellow on it. :)

Thank you for letting me share.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!!

Hello School, Goodbye summer!!

Happy back to school!!
 My 3 older boys were happy to go back to school.  For me, bittersweet.  I love that they are reunited with friends and teachers, with more day to day structure, but I miss sleeping in!!

Now only having two little ones home with me, I was able to complete a page for August 2015 Scrappy Friends challenge.
Here is my layout:

I really enjoyed making this layout.
1) From Rochelle's August Tic Tac Toe challenge, I went straight down the middle.

I used felt balloons from my stash.  The velum gray camera is from a new paper collection from Close to My Heart, Zoe and the 4 patterned paper Confetti Wishes paper pack also from CTMH.

2) I used Brenda's Sketch challenge

3) I used Kelly's Word challenge
There were so many wonderful words to pick from, I choose family!!

Thank you again for letting me share.  Have an awesomely blessed day!!

From Scraps to Beauty 1

Hello everyone.  Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful summer.
I just wanted to share some cards I made from the scraps I had left over from the July 2015 Scrappy Friends Challenge I entered in last month.  
I used the leftover paper from the challenge. I used ribbon, couple of stickers, and cut outs from my stash.
Also used Close to My Heart stamps, July 2015 stamp of the month and July 2014 stamp of the month.
5 x 7 card 
5 x 5.25 card

 cards with two additional 3 x 3 cards
I also gave the challenge to my 10 year old son 
to make something creative and this is what he came up with.
I love that he used all the patterned paper and made his own cut outs. 
 He is so creative.

Thank you for letting me share!
 Have a wonderful and blessed day!!

Very thankful for my husband for helping with the kiddies so I could do some crafting.
What a fun stress reliever :)

I have also decided to enter my page layout into a couple of fun monthly blog challenges.

1)  July tic-tac-toe challenge over at http://rochellespears.blogspot.com

I went straight down the middle.  I used red star brads, some blue and white stars and some pretty striped paper.  I really like this challenge because it helped me with using my embellishments

2) July 2015 Sketch Challenge over at  http://granddivasscrappyplace.blogspot.com/

I love the arrangement of this sketch.  It was perfect for my three boys that are in school.

3) Kelly's color challenge

This color challenge helped me use some paper that I would not have normally used.  I love the colors.

4) My own personal challenge.  To combine all challenges and use
some CTMH products.

I used July 2015 SOTM
