Here's the Scoop!- SOUS Project Life Reveal

Today at SOUS, we have another Project Life Challenge! This week you are to use a Stamp! I always seem to forget about my stamps and this was a good reminder to get them out and start using them again. They can add lots of fun to your pages! Here is my page for the week!

 All of words on the page come from a set of stamps that I had in my stash! Sorry, I don't know who makes them, but they sure are a fun set.  The set also had arrows and geotags too. I am using lots of the  Becky Higgins Project Life cards this year and just adding some of my own elements to them.

Remember that SOUS now is offering a monthly prize to one of our challenge participants, so make sure to get your entries in!

Beautiful Love- SOUS

Happy Friday Everyone! Today at SOUS, we have another great sketch challenge for you. The original sketch has space for 4 photos, but I used 3 instead. Here's my take on it....

We were babysitting the kids one day and they both sat on the chair to watch a Disney movie. I had given them a bowl of snacks while they watched. They were just so darned cute and I couldn't resist taking tons of photos. Isla would look at Noah and then he would feed her a snack. At one point she laid her head on this shoulder. So cute! I found this photo frame in my stash and knew it would be just perfect for these photos. The words on them didn't come out too clear, but they say...Faith, Hope, Love.  Eventually, she took over handling the bowl of snacks. I guess he wasn't feeding her fast enough. LOL!

Please pop on by the blog to see what the other designers have created and remember that there is a great scrappy prize being given to one of our lucky challenge participants this month! Scrapbook Circle is offering a  $30.00 dollar certificate to use in their store!

What's Up? - SOUS Project Life

This week at SOUS we are using top notes in our Project Life. I have used mine in two different ways on my layout. One way was to use it as a journaling block and the second was to use it as a base for  my Coach title.  Shapes such as these really add some interest and variety to your cards. I used some of the Becky Higgins Project Life cards to do this one, but I added some things to them like washi tape, stickers and of course the top notes.
I wanted to include once a month some journaling about what things are currently happening in my life and that's what the middle row is all about. Also documented on this page are an accident I had where I was rear ended and the end of Noah's soccer season. He was very happy with his medals!

Hope you can join in the challenge and remember there is a great prize being given to someone who participates! You don't want to miss out on that, so hop on over to the blog and see how everyone used their top notes and give it a go!

Happiness Is...SOUS Project Life Day

It's another Monday, which means another Project Life Day at SOUS! This week you have to use a butterfly on your cards.  I found a cute little glittery butterfly sticker in pink for my layout. Here is my page for this week...

We got to babysit the kids a couple of times and they even had a sleepover one weekend! I love having them over and getting to have fun with them! Of course, I can't resist snapping away with my camera and sometimes I'm able to catch just the sweetest things like Isla with her head on Noah's shoulder. They were sitting together and he was feeding her snacks! LOL! So cute!

Family Love

I found a sketch at Sketchabilities that I thought would work for the photo that I wanted to scrap today, so I used that and some Bo Bunny papers and embellishments. We celebrated Valentines Day with a dinner at Chantal's. I'm holding up some Valentines that Noah made for us.  So fun!

It's a Perfect Kind of Love- SOUS reveal

Another Friday and another great sketch to work with at SOUS! I know I've used these photos before, but I wanted to do one for Noah's album and one for Isla's!  And besides, I just love these photos of them! LOL! I want them to remember how much they loved each other when they get to be teens! :) Right now, Isla totally adores her brother and wants to do every single thing he does. It's so cute!

Riding the Waves

I had a little bit of time today, so thought I'd work on another page for Noah's book! This was taken last summer. We had just gotten a new tube and the kids had so much fun trying it out. Noah wasn't sure about it at first, but he soon was laughing away and wanting more rides!

I based this very loosely on a Page Map sketch and used some great Bo Bunny Key Lime papers and embellishments.

Monster Mini Golf- SOUS PL reveal

It was safe to say that I got a little excited when I saw that the challenge for this week at SOUS was to use Neon in your layout! I had just the perfect photos for this. We had all gone Monster Mini Golfing on the Family Day long weekend in February and the photos had all kinds of neon colors in them. I quickly dug out some Neon cardstock and got to work. I had found these cute little monsters at the Silhouette Store and this was the perfect time to use them! I added some little googly eyes ( love those things...they make me a little giddy lol) and presto...Monsters!

Noah was so cute before we went. He kept saying, "Grandma, you don't have to be scared. They are just pretend and I will protect you." Aww, that melted my heart! He even offered to hold my hand just in case I did get scared! What a total sweetie! Isla was adorable too. The mini golf is glow in the dark and she was abit scared when we first got there. Chantal showed her how to golf and it wasn't long before she was swinging that club. She would go and pick up her ball and put it in the hole and then to help everyone else out, she'd pick up their ball and put it in the hole! That's my kind of golfer! LOL!  Anyways, a totally fun day out with the family!
A little tip I'd like to share with you that I've been doing a lot of these days is instead of using adhesives for my PL, I"ve been using Washi Tape and staples to adhere the photos on. Adhesives can get very expensive when you're using tons of them, so finding different ways of adhering photos and embellishments always interests me.
Come on by the SOUS blog and check out the other PL pages! Remember that we have a great prize for one lucky winner of our challenges! So join in the fun!
