Season's greetings

I am sneaking an entry in for one more challenge this 2013.  I created this Christmas LO from my 2012 photos.  I haven't even finished scrapping my 2012 photos and it is time to develop my 2013 Christmas photos!

I used the December 15th sketch from Stuck Sketches.  They are partnering up with Red Carpet Studio to include a Christmas tree on my LO so I get 2 entered for this one LO.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful New Year!

Behind the Lense

Here is a LO that I created with a photo of myself.  It is not too often that I take photos of myself.  It is for the Challenge Yourself blog.  It was to use of photo of yourself and give 3 random facts about yourself.  So here is what I created.

I used the photo I got from school this past Fall.  I also used the big flower and some wooden embellishments that I won from the Challenge Yourself website.  So go ahead and check out this challenge.  You have until January 5th.

Happy Birthday

I can never have enough birthday cards so that is what I made for the Scrapbook Circle sketch challenge.  I used paper from the December kit.

I loved this reindeer card that was in the kit. It reminds me of my dad and many of my male relatives.  So it will be a perfect birthday card for someone.  It will probably go to my son for his 18th birthday.  he loves hunting and has yet to shoot a deer.

Sneak Peak at Stick it Down

Here is a LO I made for Stick it Down to give a little peak of what is to come on their challenge blog.

Here is the double page sketch that I had to work with.
There is also a single page LO and a card sketch that some of the ladies used.
To see a little of what is to come head on over to Stick it Down to take a sneak peek for your self.

Kitchen Keepsake Extras

Here are some LOs that I created from the 2013 challenges from Kitchen Keepsake.
For the March 2013, this LO had to include a cake.  The photos are from my in-laws 50th anniversary.
This next LO is of my dad from last December.  This is for the June 2013 "Father's Day"  to scrap you man.  I loved this photo of him reading the church bulletin.  I was taking photos of everyone at my mom's birthday party, last year.

The last LO for today is of my mom with the grandkids on her 73rd birthday in December 2012.  It also includes the above small photo of my dad. 
I create scrapbooks for both of my children and I often scrap photos differently for their scrapbooks.  Thanks for stopping in to see my creations.  Stop by again to see what else I whip up before this challenge ends.

Love it what there is at any birthday party.  In this photo my nieces take to climbing up the forbidden stairs, after eating dinner for grandma's 73rd birthday. 

This LO was created from the December 1st sketch at Stuck Sketches.   I layered my paper after I scrunched it up a bit to give it some extra texture.  I also used bows for the challenge at Kitchen Keepsake.  These are 2 of my go to blogs for inspiration and challenges.  If you are interested in either of these challenge head on over to their blogs for all the information.
