A little time to play...MME Sketch

I fell in love with this month's sketch from MME and decided I had time to play along...I had the perfect photos, perfect paper and now the perfect sketch!

I didn't change it up was just too perfect and I loved the sketch!  Sometimes it just all works that!  I don't use sketches that often and then only as a jumping point...but this one was meant to be!  Lol!

Taking time to Play

I had a bit of spare time this weekend just to create and play for myself..seems I never have enough time to just sit down and design something for me or by something that inspires me.  I was super inspired by the Thursday sketch over at Elle's Studio , and decided to give it a try.  I love the sunburst trend and I had some fun Elle's Studio products in my stash!
Here is my take on the challenge!
I die cut the top sunburst out of the white paper and layered paper strips behind and added a bit of pen work and used a smaller sunburst on the bottom.  Lots of layering, a few sprinkles and it was complete with the cutest little sock monkey ever!
Thanks for stopping by!

IE Reveal..Childhood Memories

Inspiration Elevator

You may recall that the purpose of this challenge group is to take our scrapbooking to the next level, to stretch our creative process and to grow as artists by embracing challenges that make us think, work and grow. You can view all of the challenges our new Inspiration Elevator Blog, here.

This month's challenge is issued by the super talented, Lisa Moen. Here's what she had to say in her very own words:

"I have been thinking lately, that I have only done one layout of my childhood and realized that maybe some day, my kids or grandkids would enjoy looking at a few more pages and learning about my siblings, my parents and I.
So my challenge for you this month is to create a page about a childhood memory of yours. It can be a good, a bad, a funny, a photoless or whatever you choose kind of layout.
Just remember to add journaling to tell the story behind your childhood memory.
Can't wait to see your projects!"

Such a fun challenge, I did not have any pictures from my childhood and had to have my mom send a few.  Loved this one that she sent of my brother and I.  Brings back memories of summer fun, summer squabbles and the wonderful childhood we both had.  We lived on the best block with tons of kids, lots of parks and pool nearby and it certainly was a simpler time to be a little kid.  Thanks Lisa for such a fun and inspiring challenge.

 I hope you will stop by and see what they have created:

July hop with Moxxie and a great sketch!

Hi Everyone,

Guess what day is today?  Yes, that is correct.  It is the first Friday of the month and that means it is Moxxie Blog Hop time.  This month we are going to shake things up just a bit!  Design Team Member Mary Pat Siehl has created another sketch for you and each Muse will show you their take on the sketch.  The Muses will be using all different Moxxie collections.  It is going to be so fun to see what collections the Muses are using and to see how each one interprets the sketch.

So let's get us started with the sketch!  This sketch is very fun and lends itself to many different interpretations.
Isn't this sketch great?  
Here is my take on Mary Pat's sketch~it features Moxxie's Western Round Up collection!  So much fun!

So let's get hopping.  Here are the Moxxie Muse's links.  Simply hop to ALL the blogs and Leave a Comment. Don't forget the final stop- The Moxxie Blog and leave a comment there.  

So have I mentioned the Giveaway?  This month one winner will win ONE ENTIRE COLLECTION of their choosing from the Moxxie store.  Isn't that just so awesome????  I know!  It totally rocks!  So I know you are going to have fun today!
       prize available only to US Residents, open to international residents if they pay the shipping costs!

The hop starts today and the winner will be announced Wednesday July 10th, 2013 on the Moxxie blog.  Good luck!
