Texas Outlaw

This week over at The Paper Variety, we were to follow this recipe. Be sure to read the ABC's, it's not based on colors.

Here is what I came up with incorporating this weeks sketch from Sassy Lil Sketches.

The "C" is to incorporate "cinema" so for the title I based it on the old western Texas Outlaw. I think it fits perfectly with this picture of Dax, after all, he is from Pin It

TPV's First Challenge

The Paper Variety kicked off with it's first challenge on September 15th. If you haven't been over there to check it out yet, don't wait! It is an awesome new challenge blog that the uber talented Abby and Suzanne have created. They have worked hard to bring to us crafters a variety of craft challenges with awesome prizes! They will be using to choose a winner, so whether your a beginner, or a pro, you have the same chances of winning.

This weeks challenge is based on a sketch designed by Abby herself. You don't have to make a layout, you can make a card, wall decor, or what ever your lil heart desires.

I have chosen to do a layout, because that is what I make the most. I used old scrap papers that I have been hording. The photo is of my oldest sister Marie taken by the tree in my front yard during her recent visit.

Thanks for stopping by!

MME Challenge 15

It's time for My Minds Eye Challenge 15. I don't know if you knew, but My Minds Eye is my FAVORITE. (not just saying this because of their When I ran across their blog and seen the requirements for the challenge, I was like....shoot....use at least 80% of their product and follow a sketch....I CAN do that!!!

I decided to use some of their older stuff. Like, the Complete Boy paper collection and some Signature Suite cardstock sayings. I absolutely LOVE the papers in the collection.
The Sketch

My Take

I am also using this layout for one of the SC10 challenges, a monthly challenge that is hosted over at Scrappin-N-Chattin. One of the five challeges is to use a black and white photo. I immediately thought of this photo. I so LOVE this picture of Rick and Dax when Dax was just a few days old. I have had it framed for over 3 years, just have never scrapped it until now. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Scrappy Spaces

Recently, we moved into our new townhome. I have converted the den into my scrappy space. It is still a work in progress, as I still don't have everything put away and organized. Plus, I keep moving everything all around as I discover what works best for me where.

I thought I would get around to making a video of it someday, but I don't think Lori will wait on her giveaway until I get one done...especially since her deadline is tomorrow...LOL. She recently had a room re-do, and in celebration of getting her room finished, she is hosting a giveaway on her blog for sharing your space. Now my space is NO where near as beautiful as hers, so be sure to head over to her blog to check out her awesome space

Now on to my space!

SNC September Sketch

This months sketch over at Scrappin-N-Chattin is awesome this month. I may even have to make more layouts using this sketch. This was Dax's second Halloween, he wasn't quite 2 years old. While shopping for a costume, he seen Scooby Doo and that was all she wrote! He had to have the puppy! He loved this costume so much that he still wore it after Halloween until it just wouldn't fit him anymore. I actually think we still have the hat part somewhere.
I used random papers that I have had in my stash forever, so I can't tell you who they are by.

"At the Fair"

This covers two challenges, The Cuttlebug Spot, which is "At the Fair". We were to make a card with something we remember from the fair. You would think that the first thing I would think of would be the rides, or the fresh apple pies for sale. But I didn't, I thought of the animals the kids raise and take to the fair for judging. So that is where my inspiration came from. Of course, you would then think that I would think of the cows, or the sheep. But again, I didn't. I thought of the roosters....go

At Jitter Buggin Challenge, we are to follow this weeks sketch of course, and a favorite something, which is the fair. I LOVE walking around the fair and seeing all that the vendors have to offer. But by far, my favorite is the animal judging. It is hilarious to watch the little kids running around like crazy trying to catch their prized roosters and chickens!!! Also, we were to use two of our favorite colors. I've always loved the colors blue and red together.

The pattern papers are Complete Boy by My Minds Eye, I just love the colors in this line! The front base of the card, I used Core'dinations Black Magic with the red core. I ran it through the Cuttlebug with the spots and dots embossing folder, then sanded for the red to show through. I also made the rooster using the same cardstock.

I cut the rooster from Animal Kingdom Cricut cartridge. Actually, it was the chicken, but, I thought it looked more like a rooster than the rooster one. I cut it out 3 times in 3 colors to piece him together. (sure wish all the carts had the layering function like CAC) anyway, for his eyes, I used the old fashion hole punch, you know, the one you hit with the hammer. I used the large hole for the white, and the small hole for the black. And of course, I had to use pop dots for dimension. I think it is adorable!

The ribbon I made with the Office Help cart. I cut out the badge twice, and adhered the ribbon between them. Then topped it with the starburst and a circle. I cut the 1st from the Ashlyn's Alphabet cartridge. For the banner, I just cut elongated triangles by hand and added alpha rub ons, added some white embrodery floss for the tabs and used pop dots for more dimension.

All in all, I like how it turned out.
