Homeschool

Good morning, it’s been a long time since I have posted anything on my blog. Anyone that knows me, knows that the last couple of years have been difficult. My Mom was hospitalized for a stroke and unfortunately passed and if that wasn’t enough, now we find ourselves year deep into a pandemic.What better way to feel better about things  - Being Creative!

So today I would like to share a DT post for Lasting Memories Layout Challenges. Today’s challenge is a sketch. Sketches are my favourite type of inspiration! Here is the Sketch...



And here is my layout that I created from the sketch...


Just like many children, my grandsons finished out the 2019/2020 school year with Homeschooling. I used the Scrapbook Customs Covid-19 Collection for my layout.

Be sure to play along and share your creations with us. I would like to thank the Lasting Memories team for being very patient with me and bringing me back to the team. It means ALOT!

Thanks for stopping by!

Be safe and stay crafty!!!

Angus - Week 1 to Week 3

Good evening everyone, I am presently at a weekend retreat and wanted to share a couple of Project Life style cards that I created. We recently adopted a new puppy and I have taken a lot of photos, so I thought I would do a few project life style pages rather than a million layouts.


I was inspired by the Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style sketch #109.


And here is the entire page.


And another card....


Inspired by Sketch #110 from Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style.


And the full 4x6 card...


And the full page.

How Do You Pick Just One? - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Happy Sunday everyone, it is time for the lastest Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team Reveal. We are continuing with the theme of "Mixed Bag" for September and today's challenge is: Good things come in threes - use 3 patterned papers, 3 embellishments - can be all the same or all different and 3 photos.

Here is my layout....

On September 1st we went to choose a new puppy. It had been 2 years since we lost our last Dalmatian and my husband really, really wanted another. So he got to choose which one and name it.
He chose the one in the photo that the little arrows are pointing to...or should I say puppy picked him!!!


My 3 embellishments are wood veneer, buttons and puffy stickers.


I was also inspired by the challenge at ARTastic to be inspired by the following photo and the criteria was to celebrate the males in our lives. I found it very fitting that the dog in the photo is a Dalmatian.


Be sure to stop by the Lasting Memories Blog and check out the rest of the design team's fabulous creations. Share yours with us...we would love to see what you create.
