Purple Pumpkin November Sketch Challenge

Well I've sat down today and completed another layout. It's based on the November Sketch Challenge over at Purple Pumkin. I really just wanted to do something for me today. It may sound selfish, but every now and again I feel like my entire life revolves around keeping everybody else happy.
Anyways, here is my take on the sketch!

This sketch was really easy to work with and I love the end results :-) Head here if you would like to see the details of the sketch CT's amazing examples.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous day!

Stuck Sketches - November 15th Sketch!

Hellooooooooooo!!!  I've started and finished a layout in less than two hours!  A-MAZ-ing!  Anyway... this is using the most recent sketch from Stuck Sketches.  Loved this sketch... definitely my kind of layout :-)

Here's the sketch --->

...and here's my take on it --->
A rather simple layout.  I've stuck very closely to the sketch, just rotated my photo.  Nothing very technically difficult here either, just cut and paste really... but SO happy with the end result :-)  It makes it easy when you have lots of great products... 
Core'dinations embossed card stock. 
Jillibean Soup - Spotted Owl Soup collection
A Li'l Somethin' hearts, hessian and button
Bella! - Glittered Chipz
Kaisercraft bling
Carolee's Creations mini alphas

Oh... it also helps when you have a SUPER DUPER cute li'l boy!!!  How lucky am I???! .... I have not one, but two of them :-)

Here's the latest photo of Evan :-)  He LOVES all creatures great and small and thought it was just the bees knees when daddy caught this dragon fly (on his last legs unforunately) and he got to have a hold.  He was so gentle with it and when he let Royce have a hold he made sure he told him to be gentle with it too... SO cute!  Take a look at Roycey's daggy shorts lol... he loves them :-b
Yep... SO LUCKY to have these two beautiful boys :-)  Hope you're having a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.  Oh... and head here to check out the sketch, the DT's fabulous examples and the other stunning entries :-D

P.S.  I apologies for my over use of capitilizations, smilies and punctuation... but sometimes when you're in a great mood it definitely feels necessary ;-)

A couple of layouts and a card!!!

Hi all!  Well now the market is all done (a great day had by all and lots of money raised for the school :-) ) I have been able to scrap a little.  I want to show you a double layout and a card.  These have both used Jillibean Soup's Spotted Owl Soup range.  I was luck enough to win this from Kathie's blog as part of the Get Picky blog hop!!!  How lucky was I!!!  Absolutely love this range... and still have HEAPS left!  More layouts and cards to come he, he, he.

Anyway, here's my layout...

And here's my card...

How cute is that paper! 

Thought I also might quickly add a layout that was recently published in Scrapbooking Memories.  It's my fourth publication :-O  I never thought any of my work would ever be good enough to be published.. but this is my fourth!!!  Just a little excited :-)  I don't think I will ever be one of the 'well known' names in the scrapping world, but gee it's nice to see a few of my layouts in a mag.  I don't think I've shared my three previous ones... hmmm... maybe another day :-)
Anyway, here it is...

 This is a very special layout... it's the first one I've done about Evan being diagnosed with Autism.  The letter under the photo just lets him know that I love him... no matter what.  He truely is one beautiful little boy... we really are so very blessed xoxox  Well that's it from me for today.  Hope you are having a beautiful day and thank you for stopping by :-)

Purple Pumpkin Sale and GIVEAWAY!

Well I have been doing no scrapping at all lately.  This weekend a local school is having a craft fair so I have been making little notebooks and decorating pencils to sell there.  Anyhow, I thought before I get stuck into some more notebooks I would share an awesome opportunity!  Purple Pumpkin is having their final sale for the year... and I am so NOT going to miss this one!  Leading up to the sale they are having a giveaway where you can win not one, but FOUR great prizes!  LOOK ---->

LOVE those monkey buttons and the stars!!!  They have a great range of embellies for both boys and girls!!!  Can't wait to get my hands on some of their goodies :-D  To see some more yummies and check out the details of the giveaway head over here.  The sale is on the 18th of November so you had better hop to it :-)
