My name is Kristen. I am a wife to Adam-an amazing husband. A mom of 5 busy boys- Christopher is 15, Bryce 14, John 13, Jordan 10 and Jarred 8. A scrapbooker, a wanna be photographer and so many other things. This blog is a place for me to express my creativity . Life is good.
As you can see I have been away from the blog world for quite a while. I had a very busy end of 2009 and in the midst of it all we made a move from Denver, CO to San Antonio, TX. I am finally settled in here and and ready to get back to scrapping. I have decided to do Project 365 and am really excited about it. Happy New Year to you all :)
Liz released a great sketch this week at The Scrappiest. I had a lot of fun with this one... I wanted to show that there are times when it is ok to embellish with flowers on a boy page. Check out the other great LO's from the entire DT. :)
Here are a few of the recent layouts I have done based on Liz's sketches at The Scrappiest. The most current is for Sketch 20.... It is a great sketch with sooo much potential... Give it a try :) It is hard to tell, but I took the same sheet of paper and cut out flower and the swirls so they are elevated with pop dots.
Next is my lo for sketch 19. This is a new summer line I found at Archivers.... The little creatures are actually chipboard animals that were already colored.... but they didn't match my color scheme so I flipped them over and sprayed the plain white side with glimmer mists to get the right match.
So I have been a little out of sorts lately..... just so much going on really. My 5 boys got out of school a week and a half ago and there are always many end of the year festivities. I had a garage sale last weekend - which I prepared for all week and so I haven't done much scrapbooking.. even what I have done I have not been inspired to do ( even with the great sketches...lol) So I am hoping that in the coming weeks I can get my mojo back :)This is for this weeks sketch #16 at The Scrappiest! Check it out- it's a great one! This is for sketch 14 at The Scrappiest
There is a great Sketch at The Scrappiest this week! This is my version, but check it out and play along.... The other DT members came up with some beautiful LO's!
I used the new summer line from imaginisce ... and on my plain white cardstock I placed flowers and then sprayed glimmer mists over them to create the background. I really love the colors in the new line :)
