The Sampler's May Sketch Challenge WINNER!

I loved seeing what everyone created this month with our sketch challenge! it always pains me to pick a winner so i let random.org do it for me...

which was this submission....

Congratulations Mieke! Your layout is completely fabulous and i love how you interpreted the sketch! email me your mailing information at holly{at}scrapbookingsuppliesrus{dot}com and i will get you a kit ASAP!

I also want to thank everyone else who checked out and participated in the challenge this month! we will be back soon with another challenge!



happily uncomfortable

my mom has been in town and keeping me busy. mostly with a lot of shopping, but thats an ok thing since NONE OF MY CLOTHES FIT! i'm going to go ahead and call bullshit because i'm pregnant, sure, BUT i'm NINE WEEKS PREGNANT! clothing should fit still.

well i guess not. even though there is a small being approx the size of only a grape inside of me, i am wearing maternity clothing which was terrible until i found the pea in the pod tops and pretty well everything from gap maternity. sure its all pretty well generic, BUT its so much more comfortable.

i plan to look something like this for the next 7 or so months.... except more huge...

well, thats about all i've had time for. cleaning, a bit of packing for an upcoming houston trip, playing with the boy and just trying to get comfortable. hopefully things settle in.....



DEstress Friday @ MLO this week!

This friday I will be doing the 2nd technique from the Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities which is scribble stain distressing along with stamping featuring one of the more manly new Tim Holtz sets and grungeblock techniques to make the perfect father's day card just in time to celebrate all the amazing fathers in our lives!

if you're in the area, head over to MLO between 6&9pm this friday (6-10-2011) for this free make & take! all ages welcome, appropriate adult supervision/assistance required... even for the "grown-ups"....


finding some me time...

i've been trying to get my scrapbooks back in order. i do so many projects that dont go straight into my albums i'm constantly loosing track of where i am and what i have or havent done. so i organized my photos and then felt super inspired to make something. so i did!

sketchy thursday's always has fabulous sketches and inspiration. something i check often. a couple of the most recent sketches they have up (including one hosted by The Sampler!) really caught my eye!

i didnt really play along, but i did make a layout using the 6.2 sketch. it was fun to finally break into my stash and use a few things i've been saving for what feels like forever!

sketchy thursdays also seems to be looking for guest designers for july and i loved how they not only had a sketch but also inspiration prompts so i just had to make something...

i've been really into the red, white and blue combination lately, but not the traditional. more like pink, teal and cream/grey. so i hopped on that along with those cherries! the colors are beautiful which inspired me to use the prima vine. not an embellishment i normally use, but i love it! i added extra yellow and rose shaped buttons to round out the look from the cherries.

over all, some quality time spent working on my scrapbooks. a good night for sure!



make & take @ Memories Live On TOMORROW!

tomorrow we're going to make a mini pizza box (inspired by a great tutorial over at split coast stampers)and flowers using hand-dyed paper! if you're in the area, swing by Memories Live On in Cupertino, CA from 6-9pm!
