I just got a whole schwack of photos printed at Snapfish, and I was pretty excited to get scrapping them, so when I saw the sketch from Design Dollies this week, all I needed to do was find 2 horizontal photos and go from there. I really love how the title turned out! I just clear embossed the letters, then painted some orange over top. I also managed to get rid of some flowers and letter stickers that have been sitting in my stash for a while, so all in all, I'm pretty happy with the result. I just need to get myself a white pen to do some journaling, I think underneath the "Stinkbug" of the title. It won't say much, just something like "He calls you Monkey, You call him Stinkbug" and the date. That's my husband's brother and my daughter, by the way. They don't see each other often, but they get along really well!
P.S.- this is layout #24 for the 2010 layout challenge

So Sketchy Thursdays has a sketch this week that I sort of followed, plus they joined up with Who's That Girl this week, and their challenge is a theme: "Right Now". Then there's Design Dollies, who wanted to see the colours Brown, Orange, and Teal. Let me say, I wouldn't have chosen those colours on my own, but I love the results, especially the turquoise. I think it adds quite a pop! I also had a hard time mixing and matching all kinds of stuff from my stash! It's hard to read my journaling, but I wrote that I'm into reading, coffee, Sirius Iceberg 85, organizing, and night time snuggles with Brenna.

I LOVE the hot pink and purple on this page, but I didn't have enough purple to make the wide strip behind the photos, so I trimmed some scraps and stuck them down so that you can't even tell. I had these Making Memories monogram stickers and kept the backing (for 5 years, can you believe it!) and used the backing as a stencil for these letters. I've recently been going through my scrap space, trying to organize and purge, so maybe now that I've finally used this stencil, I can finally let it go! Or maybe I should keep it, you never know when it might come in handy...

I used my new You Rock papers (love 'em) and a simple sketch I found at 4x6 photo sketch blog. Turned out to be a very easy page. I plan to do at least two more pages from this event, one for Ailis and one for the family album.

I love these photos of my little boy, Nolan. He's such a unique kid, and totally unlike myself. It drives me bonkers, because he'll just take stuff - duct tape, batteries, my best scissors, or in this case, lemon juice and baking powder - without asking. At the same time, it's pretty cool, because he's using his mind to create and experiment. I just wish he would ask, first!
I love the colour combo here, and I also love the vintage science images I found at karenswhimsy.com. They looked a little plain, so I just coloured them with a marker and watercolour pencils.
How about you? Do you have a mad scientist in your family?

I just placed my order to Close to My Heart, and I decided to get a 12x12 calendar for Brenna, you know, to record all her special moments. This will be the first page! I'm totally digging the black and white photos lately - they make it so easy to use any colour paper, and the patterned paper here is one I've had forever. I've been slowly and steadily cleaning up my scrap space, and I keep finding old stuff that I want to use. I also used a sketch I found at a cool site called 4 x 6 photo sketch blog. I think I will be using this site more often now - no cropping!
