Child's Play - "Scrabble"!!

One of my favorite games growing up and even now is Scrabble which is our inspirational idea at Child's Play this week!!! So here's my take on this awesome game ... I chose to do another LO for grandma's book and I used the colors of the Scrabble game and made sure to add words on my LO. I really like the way it turned out.

LMCB #90 "Leaving Footprints Behind"

Better late than never, right? This is one of those challenges I had a completely different idea in mind and came up with this one!! I wanted to add another page to my grandma's book as she is "Leaving Footprints Behind" which is our challenge this week at Lasting Memories AND we're being sponsored by Digi Darla too!! I realized AFTER I was done this LO that I didn't add one of her images, but you'll have to be sure to check out what the DT came up with and how they used Digi Darla's images. 

For my LO, I chose to use a piece of art we found when cleaning grandma's room out. I have more to add as we took photo's of all her drawings/paintings. This particular one is amazing - just look at her sketch, it's so close isn't it? She was very talented!!

So hop on over to LM and have a go at our challenge this week. What does "Leaving Footprints Behind" mean to you? Wait till you see the creativity from my DT this week! LOVE it!! Have a good night!

Good morning friends! We have a new challenge at Digi Darla's today and we're being sponsored by Bugaboo!! You can find all the details on the blog and if you're interested, we're running a DT call as well!! Find the challenge and DT info right HERE!

For my card today, I used Bugaboo's "Day After Forever". Isn't this gorgeous? I had planned on making it for our anniversary, but I thought the image was just a touch girlie, so we'll be giving this to our daughter when she passes grade 6 in June. Both our kid's are doing amazing in school and I know she would love this!!

LMCB #89 - "Something Smells Fishy ..."!!


We have a really fun challenge this week at Lasting Memories!! "Something Smells Fishy .. " Yep, you read that right!! LOL! Oh I am SO excited to see the entries this week!! For my LO, I am still working on finishing my Florida album from 2007 (and 2010, 2011 lol) and chose to do some more pics from our "Sealife Safari" adventure. I love the title I came up with for this one. Was a fun experience. I thought, after the fact (and glue dots) that I should have put the turtle/fish on the blue and swaped them all around - but it works and I love it!! Now hop on over to Lasting Memories and join the fun! We have a cricut cartridge giveaway!! Gotta play for a chance to win :)

LMCB #87 - "Digging For Metal"

Wow, where did the time go?? It's time for another challenge at Lasting Memories and so sorry I'm late!! This week we're "Digging For Metal"!! How cool huh? We want to see some kind of metal on your layout - embellishments, metallic paper - you get the idea!! My layout today is from Andrew's 11th birthday and we had a pool party for him and a couple friends. He's about to turn 16 lol. He wouldn't be happy about these pics bc he looks SO different now! He's gotta be 6' now and super skinny. Anyway, for my metal, I used a hinge on my page. All my embellishments are anything BUT metal that I could use on here!! Hope you like it. Be sure to join us this week, one lucky winner will receive a $10 gift cert for Michaels AND help me reach 300 followers for a chance to win a surprise goody bag! All the info is at Lasting Memories! See you there!!!

All cricut cuts are from my "Life's A Beach" cart and check out my googly eye's on the sun in the 2nd layout!!

Thank goodness he cuts his hair now, this was his "I want it this way!!" stage! LOL!
