A little Crate Paper Challenge & A Love Inspired weekend!

Hey bloggers!!

Just wanted to share with you something I just completed! So, if you haven't already gotten the message (from the previous post)....I love a good challenge!! After all it gets me scrappin and helps me to think a little more out the box!

So, jump on over to Crate Papers Blog...they are doing a sketch challenge this week.....Here is the sketch challenge....You can create a layout, project, or card using this sketch...you can also submit your work to Crate Paper if you use 50% or more of Crate Paper products on your layout!
Check out their blog...they have a few samples of what the design team members have done.

Here is what I did.... "Capture"
I named this layout "Capture" because I feel like it is important to capture the everyday moments of my children...and scrap those! It is easy to get caught up scrappin all the major life events....but it is the everyday moments...that we often forget! I don't want to forget the everyday moments...I want to capture them!! I took some pictures of Juliette today...she is just so sweet and I am loving every moment of her being 9.5 mths...such a precious age!! Just thought I had to capture this today....


All of the paper products used are Crate Paper. The stamp set that I used is Ali Edwards Technique Tuesday "Life in Pictures" stamp set. The film strip at the top of the layout...is embossed using tim holtz black soot distressing powder. I used a Martha Stewart circle punch to help decorate the film strip...along with a Jenni Bowlin butterfly sticker and vintage button!

The Ali Edwards stamps read: " Look. See. Life. " and "Look through the lens. capture a moment. tell a story. preserve a memory."

The pictures are taken with my Fuji instax camera.
The handmade flower was made by using various paper circles (distress edges, ink, mist to soften, and curl sides) The center of the flower...is made out of vintage material!


Hope you take the challenge too!

This weekend was the Make-N-Take and Cupcake social at Inspire Scrap Boutique
Me, Taylor, and Ashley each taught a make-n-take....so everyone who signed up went home with 3 make n takes and cupcakes!!

It was great to see old scrap friends and to meet new ones! Glad to have meet the precious gals from Baton Rouge!! And my dear friend Kendra...won the newest instax camera....I am so jealous....that camera is on my wish list!!





Here are a few other pics of all the inspiration at the store...







Hopefully this week is not as crazy as last week was for me...so check back because I'll be posting more challenges that I am working on!!

One more thing....Can't believe this but my little man went to his "Open House" this week for Pre-K at St. Joseph....I really can't believe in Aug. he goes to "Big School" (ummmmmmm tear!!!)
He is so ready and so excited because he gets to hang out with his Mia everyday ("Mia" is what Jacques calls my mom and she works at St. Joseph) Hopefully, they will have enough open spots for Pre-K and Jacques will be able to get in....we shall see!

Here is a picture of him and his cousin Sarah Grace (they are only 3 mths apart and they have been together since birth...and I am so glad they will be able to continue it!)


Jacques, my mom ("Mia" to Jacques), and Sarah Grace

Jacques and Sarah Grace touring the Kindergarten class! They loved it!

Hope you enjoy!
Until next time....
