Stuck ?! Sketches June 15th

I have always loved the sketches at Stuck ?! Sketches but this is the first time I'm actually using one of the sketches and posting before the deadline!  LOL!!!  I did a scraplift of Kelly Barron's layout using some of the same Maggie Holmes goodies that she did.  I just couldn't resist!!!  This photo was taken on our 29th wedding anniversary on June 11, 2017.  We were in Cleveland and went to my favorite chef, Michael Symon's restaurant, Lola.


Use Your Stuff - Challenge # 269 - A Road Trip! Vacation layout or card

Happy Monday - today I bring you a fantastic challenge from Use Your Stuff.  This challenge couldn't have come at a better time for me since we took a road trip to Toledo, Ohio earlier this month.  Along way we stopped in Cleveland, Ohio for two nights and visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the house from the movie, The Christmas Story and we had dinner on June 11th to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary at Lola (Michael Symon's restaurant). We had a great time and can't wait to go back again.

 
I hope you come join us at Use Your Stuff and play along.

Sketch N Scrap Design Team Announcement

I am so thrilled to announce that I am a new member of the Sketch N Scrap Blog Team  I love sketches and there are two layout and two card sketches every month on SNS!! 

I hope you all join me starting in July at http://sketchnscrap.blogspot.com/


Good evening!  I am thrilled to say we have chosen our newest design team members for the Summer-Winter 2017 term!  Thank you to all who applied, it was a very hard decision to just pick a few.  We had so many very talented people apply it made the decision a very hard one!  So without further ado here is our Summer/Winter 2017 Blog Design team:
 
 
My name is Christine (Chris) and I am recently retired. I have been married to my wonderful husband since June 1988 and between us we have a blended family of four children and five grandchildren.  I have been scrapping for almost 17 years and I have the stash to prove it!  My scrappy style has changed quite a bit over the years - I started with 8 1/2" x 11" single pages, moved to 12" x 12" double pages and now I mostly scrap 12" x 12" single pages.  I am super excited to be a new member of the Sketch N Scrap Design Team.  I love sketches and look forward to sharing my layouts and cards with everyone.  You can find me at  My Blog or on Instagram @chriscassidy84.

Sketches in Thyme Sketch #279

Today is my reveal of the fantastic sketch by Bev Code.  These photos were taken several years ago when Emma and Paige would come to our house and go upstairs and dig stuff out of the closet and play dress up. This day they were playing "office" and they were so serious about their jobs.


 
I used the October 2016 Hip Kit Club Main Kit and Embellishment Kits for my layout.

Use Your Stuff Challenge #265 - Bohemian Rhapsody

This one had me a little stumped what I wanted to create but I went with Crate Paper Cook Kid papers and embellishments, a Donna Downey stencil, Art Basics Light Paste and three different Heidi Swappe Color Shine mists.  The photos are Cole and Carter each enjoying a yummy donut.
