Catching up!

Last week was a whirlwind with the boys starting school and all the activities in full swing. Saturday we had Mom's camp with the football team and that night was the Silent Auction fundraiser for the team which turned out awesome. All that added up to CRAZY for me and a lot of catching up for this week.

Saturday a new drill went up on the S.W.A.T blog. The new challenge is a sketchy challenge with a twist. The twist? Pull out those stickers and use them up! Now we aren't talking Thickers here. That doesn't count.

Here is my layout. I doubled up on this one and used the sketch for the second half of my layout. I used an older Bo Bunny line that I bought long ago knowing that I had and would have more than enough zoo pages coming up since we love going to the zoo.

I used stickers to help make the border on the right side of the page and backed and popped up a few more stickers from the line to add some fun and dimension to the page.  Here is the sketch you will be working with if you come over and join in the challenge. There is a gift certificate to 3 Scrappy Boys up for grabs!

My second layout of the day is an older layout of Nathan and his fifth grade pictures for the Back to School post on Practical Scrappers. I look at this picture and then look at my 6 foot son who towers over me and has muscles and can't believe it's the same kid. (And yes, I am about that far behind in school pictures!) If only they would stay so young!  I also used an older Bo Bunny line for this layout. Bo Bunny seems to be the theme of the day.

Off to catch up on cleaning, bills, errands etc. Have a great week!


  1. CUTE! Love that Bo Bunny paper too! :)

  2. Wonderful example for the SWAT sketch! Love how you created a 2 pager and worked in those stickers!


Thank you for your comments. I appreciate each one that comes in.
