Being a military family we are almost garunteed to be moving every 3-4 years. We've lived in Kentucky, Alaska, Texas, and now Maryland. I wouldn't trade this life for anything. It has it's pros and cons but it works for us to be able to live in amzaing places, meet and befriend people from a huge array of backgrounds. This LO is for a challenge over on scrapbook.com about HOME. Here's my take:
I could not wait to get my creative little hands on the new Jazmyne line from BoBunny! Purple is my favorite color and this line is PURPLICIOUS! But not only is are the papers purplicious, they are also glittered- I LOVE BLING!
Check out where I hid the journal box
To create the eggs I used my creative memories cutting system on pre-glittered white paper, I then stickled them and then applied Glossy Accents. I think they turned out great, what do you think?
Not really, but it sure feels like it. I guess I've got alot of pinned up creativity and this week I actually had time to create LO's form the sketches I've bene creating over the past few weeks. Everything seemed to all fall into place, all of my orders came by Saturday, everything that needed be done around the house was done early, basketball games were on to keep hubby's attention, the girls had play dates...it was the perfect weekend! I can't believe I got 3 LOs done so far! Here's the 3rd.
And here is the LO I created:
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the new collections from My Little Shoebox. In this LO I used the Just Add Butter Line. How perfect for these pictures!

I think I'm on to something..not only does drawing out my sketch for LO help me put LO's together faster but I didn't consider that other people would enjoy my sketches. Today I did a LO of my DD Ryene on her 10th birthday....Birthday's are always bittersweet for me. I enjoy and feel blessed each time one of my girls reaches that milestone. But I'm always a little sad, I really can't expalin why. This birthday had the same effect. To create my sketches I start with what photo's I plan to use then I go from there. I've also noticed when I start a LO from a sketch it often changes as I'm doing it. So the actual LO becomes a variation of the sketch.
And here is the LO I created after drawing out this sketch
Sketching scrapbook layouts is new to me but I have found it to be very helpful! When I get an idea and I don't have time to sit down right away and scrap it, I draw a sketch to remind me later when I do have time. This is my 3rd sketch actually but the first two were very specific and Idid't keep them once I scapped the LO. So here it is:
I created the sketch around April 1st and FINALLY had time to sit down and create, here's what came out:
