Traditional Layouts

Here are a few traditional layouts I have done. This one is of Jesse and Xandra playing around the house. They both love the tutu and take turns wearing it.

This is a picture of Jesse looking out over a lake. Crista took the picture during our photo shoot. Jesse aways says she's thinking when she's not sure how to answer you.

Sketch by Jayne Jones

This is a layout of I did of VBS at Memorial. Jesse and Joey both went and had a great time. They learned how to be fearless for God.

This one is of Philip and Jesse playing. He had her Dora doll and was using Dora's hair to tickle her. These are some of my favorite pictures of Philip since he is smiling so big. He rarely smiles in a picture.

My First Template

I'm doing a challenge on Stuff to Scrap that has been a great learning experience for me. They have a template challenge every month where you are given a template and you can do your layout from that. Well, this month she had us make our own template. She gave us some of the pieces to use and then we had to add our own. Here is what I came up with mine. I guess it's almost like my first sketch too.

Here is the layout I did using the template. It is of my nephew Logan. The digital kit is by Amy Sumrall called Childrens Day.

Layouts, Layouts and more Layouts!

I am so glad I signed up for this class. I've been able to get so much done. Today is a free day, no new sketch and I'm all caught up. I'm going to work on another layout using one of the sketches I've already done!

Here are some of my layouts:

These are from a photo shoot with Lovelace Photography. She does beautiful work! The sketches are from the Sketchapalooza class I'm taking on Feeling Scrappy.

Kit by Flower Scraps called Surf City. Photo's by Lovelace Photography. Sketch by Stacey Lokovic and Stacey Curry.

Here is another one I did. My sister and I took the kids to McDonald's and I took my camera along. Her middle one Brodie loved it, but he didn't want to go through the tubes. After about an hour, we were cleaning up and we hear him start fussing. We looked around and he was gone! Lost in the tubes! Jesse and Joey found him and led him out. As soon as he was out, back in he went. Now he loves it!

Here is one of my favorites. This is Xandra wearing the dog's reindeer antlers. She looked so cute. I thought the pictures were taken in December, I laughed out loud when I saw they were actually taken in February!

Kit by Andrea called You Better Not Pout. Sketch by Stacey Lokovic.

Feeling Scrappy Sketch

Here is my first sketch in the Sketchapalooza class. It's of my granddaughters at the beach. We had a great time that day, but it sure was hot! The sketch is by Stacey Curry. The paper and elements are from a collabration kit; Hot Fun in the Summertime from Funky Time by Amber and one of the paper is from Summer Fun by The Scappy Kat. I really like the way it sets the pictures off.

I'll have more later.

New Sketch class starts Monday!

I'm so excited. I signed up for Feeling Scrappy's Sketchapalooza 4 class. I have taken 2 of them in the past (misssed the third one and hated every minute of it!), so I just couldn't pass this one up. They have great sketches and give tips on how to do them and how to change them to match your style/pictures. If you have never taken one of their classes, this is a great place to start.

Anyway, I may not be able to be as active in the class as I want, but I don't want to miss any of it. I can always finish what I don't complete in the class later, but I'm going to strive to complete it during the class. I need to make sure I don't have the girls on graduation weekend!
