Check out the festivities at
I’ve been on a roll recently and I’m currently scheduling a bunch of posts with many many more to follow. Here’s what I’ve been up to:
– Over a couple of weeks, I dug through 4 years of photos on my laptop and selected 343 to print.
– I uploaded them to Shutterfly.
– Over another couple of weeks, I matched the photos to sketches and selected what size to print each of them.
– I ordered all 343 photos.
Now I’m just cranking through them getting caught up as fast as I can! 😉
To keep it simple, I used mostly Sketches from these books: Scrapbook Generation.
And to keep my blog posts simple (and flowing), I’m going to be a little less detailed on products I used. I will throw in some brands here and there, but I just need to crank these posts out to share my work at all!
“I haven’t used sketches before but I’d like to try.”
“I always enjoy your layouts. Simple lines and a story to tell.”
Both winners have been notified via email.
Thank you everyone for the sweet comments. I really appreciated reading the positive reviews of my layout and blog. Please come back again soon!
Tobin just loooooves his daddy and he loves their hang out time on the weekends. Here Tobin is burying Warren in toys. And he took a break to show his giraffe some love.
Products used: Papers: Little Yellow Bicycle (most), TPC Studios (blue/green dots); Journaling blocks: Little Yellow Bicycle, jillibean soup; Accents: Me & My Big Ideas (animals), Crate Paper (tree); Ribbon: Stampin’ Up; Letters: Glitz & Glitter (white), Making Memories; Sketch: Sketches for Scrapbooking
I started with this patterned paper from my baby stash.
I wanted my card to revolve around this adorable giraffe.
So I trimmed it down to 4 3/4 by 6 3/4 inches, rounded the corners on the right side and glued it onto a white card.. Then I outlined the giraffe with a brown pen to make it pop off the background more. With some ribbon and a journaling block turned into a sentiment, voila, a baby shower card!
Products used: Ribbon: Stampin’ Up; Journaling block: K&Company; Stamps: Close to My Heart
On Friday, I attended the Pleasanton, CA Scrapbook Expo. It was a little chaotic and overwhelming but here are the goodies I escaped with. 😉 Most of this is from the SEI booth. I happen to love SEI papers and they had buy 2 get 1 free paper packs and 30-50% off on the old paper lines and accessories.
I already used the papers I bought from the SEI On the Coast line but you’ll have to wait until April to see that layout on Sketch Support!

More pictures from my trip home in August. When on vacation in familiar cities, it’s a priority of mine to enjoy all of my favorite foods nearby. This spread covers my favorite bagels, Mexican food, and pizza. Yummmmm!
