Freshman Dance

This is another entry for the June DCVW Stack-a-holic Challenge. I used the Teenage Dream Stack for this page of my son's Freshman Dance. I love the pennants that come with this stack. So fun!

I have not posted anything in ages--yikes! Between work and family life, I have not been too creative in 2012. Most of my scrapbook layouts have been for my Design Team work for Mosaic Moments. You can check out my work by heading over to I post there twice a month. Fun products and fun challenges so far!

I love the monthly Stack-a-holic Challenges on the DCWV blog. I have many of their stacks and I love using sketches to guide my scrapping. I was going to scrap some photos today and I checked the DCWV blog for the June challenge.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my take on the sketch. I used "The Green Stack" to  create my layout.

Junior High

I purchased the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cart but have not used it very much, which is a shame, since it is loaded with wonderful stuff. I wanted to scrap this photo of the kids and noticed this CTMH Typeset paper in my pile. My kids were going into 7th and 9th grades this year, so I thought the paper would be great for the LO. I pulled out the cart and looked for a tag to use for the photo. Found one I liked and also some banner and oval frames and let the cutting begin! A very simple page but I wanted the paper's features to shine as well as the kids!

Mud Run

My son and I had an absolute blast sloshing through mud and navigating muddy obstacles at a Mud Run on June 18th. One of my girlfriend's put together a team and we eagerly signed up. We were labeled team "Dirty Bitches" and my son was "Son of a Dirty Bitch" (our shirts got rave reviews). We braved 3.5 miles of muck and came out a mess but had so much fun doing it we plan to sign up again next year!

I used Martha Stewart's Drippy Goo punch on the LO in an attempt to recreate dripping mud. You have to really experience the mud run in person, though, to get the real effect!

Searchin' 4 The Perfect Tree

After going out to breakfast, we set off to get our Christmas tree. We had a gorgeous morning for our hunt (usually we are searching in a downpour).
I used Mosaic Moments Grid paper to help me line up my mosaic tiles of the trees.

Merry Christmas 2011

Every year I like to create a layout featuring our Christmas card. This is our 2011 card. Since the kids are standing in front of the Christmas tree, I wanted to use some of the ornaments as elements on the layout.

I used Tami Potter's double sided tape and added glitter to it for a little extra bling. And my base paper is Mosaic Moments Grid paper. The grids really help with spacing my 1x1 tiles perfectly!
