Every year I try to make a point of taking a picture or two of my little sweetie on Valentine’s Day so that I can make a valentine layout! KYoung_Fabulous


The fun pictures we took were perfect for playing along with Case No. 191 over at CSI!

Sketches in Thyme #184

Today I am sharing my take on sketch 184, by Shawn Lahr, over at Sketches in Thyme.





I simplified it a bit, but the main elements are there. I did like the push to use four photos- I rarely do that!


Head on over to the Sketches in Thyme to check out this months’ prize, more info on how to play along and other design team layouts for inspiration!

Last weekend I had a wonderful time with wonderful friends at the Fall Paperie Retreat. Not only was it great for relaxing and spending time with friends, but it was also great for rekindling my scrapbooking mojo. Today I am sharing one of the layouts I had fun creating there.

I used the October challenge at Words & Paintery as inspiration for this one.

Sketches in Thyme- Sketch #172

Here is sketch #172, by Brenda Ragsdale.


It’s not often that I go plain and simple, but that’s the way I went with this one.


I love doing Fall pages and those Simple Stories Sweater Weather die cuts and embellishments made it super easy! I didn’t even add any inkiness… what?! I’m pleading temporary insanity. LOL

Believe All Things Are Possible

Today I am excited to share my latest layout, that I created to play along with the November challenge over at 13 Arts.

Their mood board is just beautiful and I found it very inspiring. I knew I wanted to use a black background. Then I decided to try to mimic the look of the sky in the second picture, and use the word ‘believe’.




Honestly, it was so fun to make and I love the result, so, win, win!

Good morning! It’s been a while since I have blogged a layout. Truth be told, I’ve been feeling short on creative mojo. But I think (fingers crossed) I’m starting to get out of the slump!

Today I am playing along with the October Week 2 sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy, and Case File #170 over at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration.


I just love the colour of the water in this candid shot from our recent trip to the Bahamas. It really makes me want to go back! I used turquoise Dylusions to create the background colour behind the photo and mimic the water- I love the way it turned out.
