The sketch challange:
Saturday, March 28, 2009
This layout is for a My Mind's Eye sketch challange over on The Page Map's blog http://pagemaps.com/. You are suppose to scrap what is on your mind. With the weather outside I have Spring on my mind. When is it going to get here. The paper is Stampin' Up and My Mind's Eye. The rub-on is Basic Grey. The cut outs are My Mind's Eye.
These pictures were taken about 10 yrs. ago at my cousin's wedding reception. It is hard for me to believe that Stephani will be dancing in this same building this fall only it will be her wedding. The page is made with a Colorbok package.

One of my prized possesions has got to be My Quilt. A good friend made it for me when I was going through Chemo for Breast Cancer. All the squares are things that people who are near and dear to me wrote. All the time that went into making it and the thought and love that each person put into their square is so meaniful to me. I cry each time I read them. The paper is We R Memory Keepers and the title is Thickers.

My "Celebrity Lift" doesn't think she is a celebrity but if it wasn't for her I wouldn't even be doing these challanges. She emailed me in Jan. and asked if Steph and I wanted to join the fun. It has been a blast ever since. So my lift is Megan Klauer. The paper is My Mind's Eye and random chipboard and stickers. Can you believe it but no Thickers today.

You are probably all getting tired of the Harley pictures. But the truth is this obbsession didn't start with us. I found this picture of Wendell (Steve's Dad) on his Harley and had to put it with the picture of Steve on his. Steve doesn't say to much about my lo's but he loved this one.

I couldn't do a page with me and my Dad and not do one with me and my Mom. My Mom is an awesome Mom. She lost her Mom when she was 15 and had me when she was 16. She raised five kids. She went through me having breast cancer in 05 and then lost my sister Christy in 07. But she stands strong. I draw my strength from her. The poems are one that I wrote for her on Mother's Day one year and one she wrote for me on my 40th birthday. The paper is Sassafras and the letters are Thickers.

Everyone has always told me how much I look like my Dad. So I thought it only fitting to do my Heritage page with pictures of him and I at about the same age. It is amazing how much we do look alike. The paper is Urban Prarie by Basic Gray, the tag is K & Company, the rub-on is Stampin' Up, the buttons are clear buttons that I had punched out pieces of the pattern paper , ran them through my Xyron and stuck them to the buttons. The title is Thickers.

I decided to do my whole page based on blurry and unflattering. These are pictures from Christmas. Luckily I got a new camera for Christmas. Although the new camera won't help the unflattering part. The paper and tags are Adorn It (from my prize package. Thanks Megan.) Letters are Thickers.

Ok this one was a challange for me since I do not handcut or handcreate. But I gave it a try. So I made an attempt to make robots. They are made with punches. The pictures are once again the two guys I babysit. The paper is Sassafras and Stampin' Up. Random buttons and Thickers.

This is for Christine's challange to make a list. I love to read. I always have a book. It may take me awhile to finish them sometimes but I never start another one until I have finished one. I just purchased "The Shack" by William Young. I have heard awesome reviews on it. But I have to finish the other one I am reading first. Paper is Kelly Panacci, rub-ons are Stampin' Up & Jeneva and Thickers.

Someone please help me I am a paper addict. I was on the internet last night looking at Michaels website. I don't know if they have had it in the past or not but I found Sassafras paper bundles. I could hardly stand it until I got there today and got me some. Of course I had to pick up a few other bundles while I was there. But the best part was they were 25% off. And by the way Hobby Lobby has Thickers 50% off again. I think I may need counseling for this problem I have.

I have always said that Jonathon is an old soul in a young man's body. So when I saw these Happy Trails things I thought of these pictures of him. And it worked perfectly for this challange. The paper is Stampin' Up. The cut-outs are some I found on an H.P. website and Thickers.
