Fun At The Bowling Alley


Happy Thanksgiving!! I did this LO based on the above sketch last night for Scrappin-n-Chattin while watching The Biggest Loser: Where Are They Now. I chose The Storytellers Club/Pearadise Collection because I was tired when I started this LO and loopy pears sounds like spare in bowling! I haven't used this collection yet either and there is polka dots in the pears to go along with the "round" theme. As you can tell I didn't stick to the sketch entirely. The journaling states that "Emily, Scott, & I went bowling July 2010. As you can tell by my score, 18, I'm not good at bowling!" I did have fun taking pictures and as the sticker states over the pic of me "Have A Ball"! The paper under the title is from Recollections Monkeying Around Collection. I have more pics from this same day and more bowling stickers, so be looking for another bowling LO soon! I need to get to bed soon since I have to work tomorrow. I'll be in the back room so I won't be around the "madness" the entire time I'm at work!

Sunday VBS Memories

I made this LO for the Day Challenge at Scrappin'-n'-Chattin'. Yes, this is my 2nd day LO, but technically my first didn't qualify. I read it wrong. I was supposed to use "today", "tomorrow", "yesterday", or a day of the week. This LO is of last year's VBS Closing Sunday program. The journaling states that "Mr. Ray, Cathy Ipock, Gabrielle & Laurel Revette, Trisha Gable, Matt Edwards, & Matt Smith (were) getting thrown water balloons at. Grant Gable is in the wheelchair on the sidelines." I should have written the word "were" in their, but didn't. I made this LO last night and it was late when I finished it! The kids were told whoever brought the most money would get to throw water balloons at their crew leaders on Sunday! The kids loved it as well as the adults! :) This paper is actually from a birthday kit, but I wanted to use it since you can't really see the water balloons! I had to overlap the pics to get them all to fit on the page. I have more pics and may scrap them later this week or sometime. I have a busy work week ahead of me. I'm off tomorrow and Thursday (that's a given since the store is closed) and work the rest. I'm in the back room on Black Friday and most of the week! Have a good weekend and a good Thanksgiving if I don't get to scrap/blog before then!

Sportscraft Washer Toss

I made this LO for Scrappin-n-Chattin's Color Challenge and The Paper Variety's (http://thepapervariety.blogspot.com/) Challenge of the week. The Color Challenge with Scrappin-n-Chattin was to use red, gold/yellow, & brown in the LO. I used Recollections Garage Sale Vintage Stripes with red, yellow, and brown in the stripes and added some of the same colors in the photo mats. The pics are of my stepbrother, sister, mom, and stepdad playing Sportscraft Washer Toss. I entitled the LO "Family fun!" for the challenge with The Paper Variety. The journaling tells what they are playing and that it is a different version of horseshoes. The stickers and journaling half circle are Me & My Big Ideas Soft Spoken Bloom-Family, the word "fun!" is from Best Occasions Mixed Media Pack, the bottom 2 picture mats are from Basic Grey Life of the Party 6x6 pad, and the top picture mat is from some blog candy I won. Another simple LO! I have more pics of this same game to scrap later. I have it preplanned and will scrap it sometime this week.

I was gonna watch football when I got home from church this afternoon, but my grandmama & her husband, Mr Raffael came to visit and brought us some pecans! It was a surprise visit, but a good one! I hadn't shown her the LOs I made of her wedding, so I showed them to both of them while they were here! I'm following scores for the UNC/UNC-A game and football online. The race is being watched in the living room. I hope UNC wins, which it looks like they are! I'm not sure about the race winner. Good luck in NFL tonight!!

A Day To Remember



I did this LO for Scrappin-n-Chattin's "Day" Challenge. We were to include the word "Day", "Yesterday", "Tomorrow" or any day of the week in our title. I chose Day, because I'm not sure if these pics were taken July 4th or the weekend of. I hid the journal under the top pic on the right. I decided to put a few pics on the paper under where the pic hides the paper as well as shown in the middle pic- "Capture the Action", "happiness", and a patriotic sticker of the Statue of Liberty. The journaling states that "Emily, Scott, and Grandmama came to celebrate July 4, 2008 with us. This was the first time Emily had held 55. He was a kitten at the time. (You can't really see him in the pic, but that's what she's holding.) A lost and sick looking goose landed in our yard. Mama was feeding him some bread crumbs. I decided to take a quick photo before we all ate lunch." The paper is Story Teller's Club Chillin', the title letters are Basic Grey Oliver, the middle border and journaling tag are also Story Teller's Club Chillin', and the photo mats and stars are Basic Grey Pyrus/Life Of The Party. The star under the "E" in "Remember' is Basic Grey Oliver, the patriotic stickers were given to me in a RAK, the happiness sticker is Sticko Family, "Capture the Action" sticker is Making Memories Word Fetti. I hid brads under the stars I punched from Basic Grey Life of the Party. TFL!

A LO All About Me

I made this LO for Scrappin-n-Chattin's Me LO Challenge for November. I apologize for the picture quality, but it's off my cell phone and my camera pic was darker. The paper is K&Company Jubilee Bright Flowers. The title "Smile" is from Studio G Chipboard Stickers. The butterfly and flower are brads from K&Company (they were a set for only a $1.00 at Wal-Mart). The "My Life" tag is from Best Occasions Punch Out Pack & the purple bobbin ribbon is from a bottle swap I was in. The picture backgrounds are from Inspirations 8x8 Reversible Papers, they were 2 sheets and I reversed each sheet for each pic! The journaling states clockwise in order of pics: "Me in Strike Zone August 2010", "My Birthday Outfit June 27, 2009", "Me on Thanksgiving Day November 26, 2009", & "Me in the Hermit Crab at Pine Knoll Shores, NC Aquarium July 2010". I don't like making LOs of myself, because I'm my worst critic. I would have to say these are some of my favorite pics of myself. I printed out a bunch of pics at Target this afternoon so be looking for more LOs to come! I hope you all have a good weekend!
