Sunday Layout....Week 2

So....I have to apologize already....I didn't get to post this layout last this Sunday I am posting two of them! I was quite crazy last week...between work, conference presentation, hubby leaving for out of town, kids activities, this week I am making it up!!

I must say doing this challenge has been really great for me...because it forces me to scrap and get things done!!

Here is the layout for the week: "Rough and Tough"

My little boy (Jacques) turned 5 in July and is quite obsessed with sports to say the least!! My parents gave him custom made football pads and all the other necessary things for a little football player! He had a "football" themed birthday party and our backyard was transformed into a mini football field. So, needless to say...I have a lot of those pictures to scrap!

1. Background Paper - My Minds eye
 2. Other papers used - Echo Park Paper Co (Line: This & That)

 3. Title Letters - Jillibean Soup & Love, Elsie
Green ones are made by Jillibean Soup and can be found at the link highlighted
The other letters I used are quite old...but some of my favorites!! Back in the day famous blogger Elsie Lawson (A Beautiful Mess) used to design scrapbook products ( I wish she still did!)...and I swear I still hoard her stuff....I secretly don't want to use it because I don't know if I will ever be able to find her cute stuff again! I did some searches and you can still find the stuff on Amazon and Ebay!!
The green frame I used to board the pictures of jacques is also made by Love, Elsie...and I found some on Ebay.
4. Index Journaling Card - LilyBeeDesign
5. Washi Tape and other embellishments
I used various washi tapes from companies like: Queen & Co, My Minds Eye, and Bella Blvd
The number 5 playing card is from Tim Holtz...
Happy Scrapping!

Sunday layout...Week 1

Hey guys-

So I always attempt a challenge...sometimes I complete them...sometimes I fall short, but I really like a good scrapbook challenge to get me going!! I am quite behind on my kids scrapbooks to say the least...Life is just to busy (and I can't seem to get around to printing pictures!!) But, any ways...that really isn't an excuse...

So here is my challenge for the month of October....scrap a layout each week and post about it on Sunday! I can do life is crazy...yes I know....I am stressed...yes I know....I work too much....yes I know....but that doesn't matter I need to get on the scrapping ball (after all doesn't that reduce stress?!)  So any one want to join the challenge for the month?

Here is the first layout for this month....titled " U are "

This layout was quite fast...light on the techniques, but big on the title and all the adjectives to describle my two year old right now! The picture of my little girl was taken this summer and when I look at it so many things come to I thought why not use short descriptions to describe who she is right now! I have acquired tons of stickers, labels, rub ons, I took a bunch out and began to search for ones to describe my little Juju!!
The hexagon pattern I created in the background was done by using a Crafter's Workshop stencil, embossing powder, and Viva Decor Inka Gold (color: Old Silver) I first did a layer with the hexagon stencil by embossing and then came on top of the embossing with a larger hexagon stencil and rubbed the viva decor inka gold to create the second layer of hexagons! Super easy and a cool element to the page!

I made the flower by using pleated ribbon that I recently bought from a Scrapfest vendor named BuyTheYardRibbons (only thing she sales in her booth is ribbon cut by the yard...but the ribbon is so unique and beautiful...every kind you can think of!!)  

1. Paper - My Minds Eye (from the new release The Sweetest Thing)

2. Brads & Various title stickers - My Minds Eye (from the new release The Sweetest Thing)

3. Hextagon Stencil - The Crafter's Workshop (6x6 template)  I purchase mine from Treasured Memories Scrapbook store in Lafayette, LA

4. Ribbon Flower & Cameo embellishment - Buy the Yard Ribbons (for the ribbon flower and measuring tape ribbon) Webster's Pages (for the cameo flower embellishment)

5. Washi Tape - My Minds Eye and Queen & Co

6. Sticker Banner and chipboard frame - October Afternoon

Hope you enjoyed! Happy Scrappin'
