Scrap~tures Guest Designer - LOVE HIM + LGS All ABOUT ME

Hi there
 I am here with your
5th and FINAL September's
 Scrap~tures Kit Club
 Tuesday Temptation 
- the very last day of  September - POOF tomorrow is a new month! 

I have had a blast with this months kit !!   I loved the challenge of doing 5 layouts.  This week I wanted to do something a little different plus play along with another challenge
I know you have everything to do this layout.......maybe this layout will tempt YOU!
 This is my silly "BABY" - he will ALWAYS be my Baby [even though he turned 6 - yesterday!]  
He was playing around with my camera and figured out how to use the timer...this is what I found.....Stinker Pants!!   
He loves to scrapbook with me and /or even help me.  So....I used a Silhouette heart cut file, removed the heart and gave the 12x12 to Joaquin, and the White Bistro Chalk Marker.  I asked him to "write-on" the "chalkboard' for me.
Darling right!!
Look at THAT face...
A fun title using the MR naked chipboard + Red Bistro Chalk Marker
 - keeping with the "Graffiti" look.
He even drew me some hearts
 - this kid melts my heart!!!
  The washi tape was very tedious to wrap around the heart cut file from CS WorldWin White and along the edges [will probably NEVER do it again] but so worth the effort!!!

Supplies:  CS WorldWin White, The Paper Studio Black,  CB element stickers,  "HIM", Maya Road Naked Chipboard (altered), Love My Tapes Washi, Bistro Chalk Marker (White & Red) 
 [ALL part of your kit]   
Aside from my adhesive and pop dots you OWN everything to do this layout 
(insert your own photo LoL)

I played along with
Let's Get Sketchy
5th Week Challenge "ALL ABOUT ME"  
 TEMPTED??  Inspired!?
 I can't wait to see what YOU do with this kit and /or challenge!!

Christa - thank you so much! I had a lot of FUN Guest Designing for you.
This layout completes my September GD spot.

Let me know your here visiting and become a follower...

Thank you

Hi there

Today marks the 5th Monday in September
Has a FUN Challenge
That's right...we want to see YOU
on a layout
This IS #ME
I wear about 9 different hats - that's ME
I journal-ed around my LO.  It reads:
This is #ME!....Mummy, Wife, Grand-daughter, Daughter, Sister, Cousin, Niece, Friend and Designer...my life is FULL...I spread myself thin...divided into ALL these "pieces"....I wear all these Hats, PROUDLY...Going this way....and That way....every which way....But in the End...in the End I will never give in...NEVER give up...I will KEEP it together....This is #ME!
 My title is Silhouette cut files + LYB cork alphas, Bling-ed with Say it in Pearl's
I added some sheer shimmer mist (copper)
-who doesn't love a lil'shimmer
The flower cluster mix (hand-made crochet - thank you Erica-dorine) + FIT Kraft Daisies,
jillibean soup etched flower buttons with hemp bow
I wanted to include a little close-up of the photo cut up
Finished it off with cork chevrons + foam squares

I have created a "Scrapbook Bucket List"
Things I see or think of and would like to try
(a list so I don't forget!)
Some of my list:  print and scrap a sepia photo, scrap photo bigger then 4x6,
cut up a photo - and scrap it!, JOURNAL (something I don't do enough of)
use more clusters!!

I {heart} School - Sketches4all September LO Challenge

Hi there!

Today I am playing along with
Grade 1
I love this Boy!!! 
 I love it more when he wants to scrap with me!!! 
 He wrote "GRADE"and 2014
 (his 4 is backwards = I treasure it MORE!!!) 
 I never correct his work ( I figure he's only 5 with teachers and everyone else 
down his throat to do things "properly" I can relax LoL!)
He is actually holding this cardstock (folded) in the photograph 
 - you can still see the seam!!
 I had this foam title which is perfect (he loves school and I know this will change one day)
I bordered my 12 x 12 with Bistro Chalk Markers (red)
 Look at his penmanship - PERFECT-O!!
A silhouette cut file (doubled with foam dots) and bakers twine
(in place of the ribbon in the sketch)
I splattered Mister Huey's Mist
and edged the photo with yellow acrylic paint.

I had a messy, fun time with this layout.
My son is very pleased with it as well!

Here is the Layout Sketch:
Hop over and take a peek, you have until midnight EST, 
September 30th to play along.

Thank you for stopping by and let me know you were here
