Dec GDT Challenge for Sketchy Thursdays

December GDT Challenge from Sketchy Thursdays
This months challenge was to use this sketch and make a page that reflects gratitude, thankfulness, Thanksgiving and all that goes along with a month celebrating the things we are grateful for.

I used Bo Bunny Ad Lib Scribbles pattern paper, Heidi Swapp stamp, Prima Frosting Flowers,  Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, different types of Thickers, misc buttons, and material.

Always remember the little moments we are thankful for.  Shane, Andrew, & Leo October '09 Cedar Hills Farm.


This is sketch 11.3 from Sketchy Thursdays.

I used a kit that was sent to me for this layout.  The pattern paper is Cloud 9 Travel Going Places and the card stock is Core'dinations everything else is misc materials.

Family Forever

I received this pp and embellishments from a SMS (same material swap) with some friends. As soon as I seen the title that was sent with it, I knew exactly what picture I wanted to scrap. My parents always wanted us to come to deer camp on Thanksgiving with them but with small kids we didn't have a lot of room to stay and Shane always seemed to be on call during Thanksgiving and there was not internet access at deer camp. In 2009 we finally made plans to go and it all worked out. We rented a small pop up camper and stayed almost a full week at deer camp. My Dad was so happy that we brought the boys down. Little did I know that shortly after this trip my Dad would get very sick with cancer. This is the only picture we have of everyone together, my Mom & Dad, bother Eric and his wife Alyana, Shane and I, and of course the kids Andrew, Leo, and Jack. I will cherish our deer camp trip and this picture forever!

Make a Wish

March Guest Design Team Member Challenge fromSketch Thursdays

In addition to the sketch you had to use the following:
Pink & Green or Red & Turquoise
A list about something/someone you love

With 3 boys I don't often have the opportunity to use pink on a layout, but I love it when I do.
I chose the pink & green combination, there are little hearts on the pattern paper, and heart embellishments, and I journaled about some of the things we love about Jack.

Journaling: Jack, We love your smile, big blue eyes, blonde hair, and sense of adventure. Being the youngest of three boys you have no fear! We are so blessed to have you! Happy Birthday!

Leo's Preschool picture. I really had no use for all of these little pictures so I thought I'd use 3 of them for this layout. I love the way it turned out!

My lighting for this picture is horrible. I'm so sorry.

Sledding Fun!

Here are a few more sledding pictures! This time they are of Leo (my middle son).

Most of my product that I used for this layout came from a swap w/ friends so I'm not for sure who even makes the pp.

Friends = Love

These are our bestest friends! Andrew and Zoe started hanging out when they were babies. Really they started hanging out when I chased Zoe's Mom down the street yelling at her! I was so excited to see a Mom in our neighborhood with a baby about the same age as mine during working hours. LOL! I never in a million years figured it would turn into the friendship that it has! I found the BEST friend EVER and I think I can say the same thing for my children. Zoe & Maci are the sweetest, most precious little girls. My boys LOVE them and so do I! Now that we have moved away we miss them lots but try to visit them every chance we can.

This sketch is from Sketchy Thursdays. It is their February Guest Design Team Member Challenge. If you haven't checked them out, you should!

We are having a snow day here in TN. We only have a couple of them a year. The kids have been out playing all morning and now all 3 of them are napping. I decided to spend nap time scrapping and what better pictures to scrap than sledding last January. I cannot believe how big my babies are getting.
