A Family Vacation: A Layout for Frosted Designs

I created this layout specifically for the "All in The Family," challenge at Frosted Designs! 
I enjoyed this challenge, and decided to write my own quote about family.  I truly feel my family is a gift from God.  In this layout, I featured photos from a family vacation with my husband, son and mom!

I'm so excited to announce that I found a super inspiration blog, called Kreative Koncepts!

I decided to jump right in and do a layout for their current challenge:
Everyone knows that I love a sketch with 2 or more photos, so I didn't need to make any adjustments to this one!  Here is my sweet boy, featured in a little baseball outfit!
He's the Most Adorable Player, the MAP!

Scrap Our Stash Challenge #16

A stash challenge from Scrap Our Stash is exactly what I needed!
This is my kind of challenge - to USE WHAT I ALREADY HAVE - because I have too much stuff! Using as much from my stash is one of my goals in scrapbooking during 2014!
Here are the details of the challenge:
For this challenge we are going to shop our personal stash, we will not be taking a trip to our local scrapbooking stores.

Here's the rules:
From the shopping list below, shop for (5 or more) different items in your stash. 
Create a layout and include those (5) items on your page. 
Here is the shopping list:  I have highlighted the elements I incorporated into my layout!
Washi tape
Stars (3 or more) - I used 3 wooden stars!
Striped Paper (not lined)
Enamel Dots (3 or more)
Polaroid Frame
Buttons (3 or more) - I used 6 buttons!
Dimensional sticker

I combined this shopping challenge with a 2 page sketch from Let's Scrap!

Sketchabilities # 117

I seized this opportunity to use a bunch of products from my stash to create a layout based on the Sketchabilities #117 sketch
And here is the page I created:
I rarely scrap 1 photo on a page these days, as I am so far behind in my son's photos, but this sketch really caught my eye!

Stuck?! Sketches: June 15th

I'm a sketch girl!  They really help me get that jumpstart on a layout, especially if features more than 1 photo!  I love the Stuck?!Sketches blog for their inspiration several times a month! Here is the June 15th sketch I worked from:

And here's my layout featuring my favorite subject, my son Ezra!
I am really behind in scrapping all of the photos I have taken since he was born, so I added a 3rd photo to this sketch!  Thanks for the great sketch, Stuck?! Sketches!

A Layout for Stuck! Sketches, January 15 Sketch

Don't Feed The Animals is the layout I created for the January 15th sketch from Stuck! Sketches. 

Here is their original sketch:
Typically, I prefer to work with several photos on a layout, as I am 3 years behind in chronologically scrapping my son's life, but when I finished up the stack of photos from our zoo trip, this one was left!  I love my son's tiny finger pointing at the animals, and the profiles of the ones I love! But I was pleased to create this layout with paper and zoo theme embellishments that are SEVERAL years old!  I also pulled out my overabundance of buttons, and used several of those!
