Save the Boobies - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Good Morning everyone...I hope you are enjoying your Sunday morning. I have a layout this morning that will put a smile on your face. It is time for the Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team Reveal. It is this last challenge for the theme of "Stash Busting". Today's challenge is a Tic Tac Toe challenge - pick a row and use those three items on your layout.

Here is my layout....


Last fall we attended the last ScrapMuch? Scrapink fundraiser. The ladies had collected a tonne of raffle prizes. As I walked along the table to put in our tickets, my Mom said she wanted to win one on the chocolate Boobies....low and behold, she won herself one and my great niece also won one...so perfect photo opp with a couple of chocolate Boobies.

Here are some closeups....



Product List - Teresa Collins - Timeless papers, vellum & black fuzzy paper, Thickers, Jillibean Soup - Picked pink alpha, MME enamel dots and Dollar store Breast Cancer Awareness pin.

And here is your Tic Tac Toe board. Make sure to stop by the Lasting Memories Blog and check out the rest of the teams creations. I used the middle horizontal row - Enamel Dots, Polka Dot Paper and Hearts.


I was also inspired by the Freaky Fast Friday challenge at The ScrapRoom.
I love this challenge.


I was also inspired by The Paper Girls Challenge - to use patterned paper.

BFF'S Scrap For a Cure !

Happy Tuesday everyone! I have a fun layout to share with you today...


These photos were taken at the last ScrapMuch? Scrapink fundraiser. We had a blast and our course had to get a couple of shots so we could document the fun time we had. How lucky is a girl to have two wonderful friends in her life?

Here are some closeups....




Product List: Teresa Collins - Timeless papers, Jillibean Soup Alpha, Heidi Swapp - Chipboard Alpha & stickers, Basic Grey stickers & Dollar Store Breast Cancer Awareness pin.

I was inspired by the Sketch N Scrap January 1st sketch. I turned the sketch for my layout.


I was also inspired by the following:
Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - to use the colour grey

The Paper Girls Challenge Blog - to use patterned papers
and

Fantastic

Good morning everyone...it is back to a regular work schedule for us today....I guess getting back to a routine is a good thing?!

Today I would like to share the layout that yesterday's layout was based on.....


Here is my sister & I posing for the camera. The automatic setting where you get 5 different angles and filters with one click of the camera was used for the different shots.

Here are some closeups....





I used the DCWV - The Hey Sailor Stack paper which I cut out a couple of the project life size prints and banners as accents, and I once again fussy cut some of the elements for embellishing. We R Memory Keepers Typecast tags, Fancy Pants script words/puffy stickers and flair along with twine and brads from my stash.

I used the sketch from Even More Scrapping for inspiration.

Strike A Pose

Today is my last day of Christmas vacation and I managed to get in a little bit more of scrappy fun time. I created a couple more layouts and I would like to share one with you today.....


These photos were taken last summer when we went away for a long weekend with my sister and her husband. We took lots of pictures, but we wanted to get some posed shots. The boys liked the way my sister & I posed, so they tried out the same pose for their photos...what a hoot!!!

Here are some closeups....




All the papers that I used are from DCWV - The Hey Sailor Stack. I love how DCWV stacks always have images that you can fussy cut to create your own elements. Other items used are Bo Bunny doily, Horizon alphas, Studio Calico wood veneer hearts and little men and twine and wood veneer tag from my stash.

I was inspired by the January 1st Stuck?! Sketch.

Happy New Year Everyone!!! Well since it is Sunday, it is time for the newest Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team reveal. We have a new theme to start off 2017 which is a Stashbuster Challenge!!! and the first challenge is to use your Punches - pull out those punches and put them to use! If you don't have punches you can use die cuts/ephemera pieces on your layout.

Here is my layout.....


We took these photos last year on New Years. I made the little photo props...we had lots of fun with them.

Here are some closeups....



I punched out two Ampersands with my punch, and added some pop dots for dimension.


I punched out three different papers with the same edge punch to give a nice layered effect.


And another edge punch under the photo cluster. I also used a Tab punch above a photo.

Product List: Recollections embossed background paper, Basic Grey - Prism paper, stickers and diecuts.
