Scrappy Fun and a Few Challenges!!

This past Friday I had the rare chance to spend the WHOLE day KID FREE to scrap and chat with the talented Jillian Deiling Cassity ALL DAY!! Like from 9:30 am to 1 am!!! While I was there I actually got a layout done!! I know, I know!! ONE layout you say!! Yes, this is a huge accomplishment for me when I scrap somewhere else than my home. I always end up chatting the time away and never get anything done. The layout that I finished was for a sketch challenge at My Scraps and More!!

This is Natalie at her sewing class and her first sewing project!! It was a little notions bag!! She has so much fun learning how to sew from Ms. Darlina!! Here is another challenge at My Scraps!! A Quote Challenge!!

The Quote is in my journaling " Babies are a nice way start people!"

And here is some other layouts I got done this weekend!!

Just Being ME!

I usually HATE doing LO's about me!! It makes me feel so self centered while I'm creating the layout! lol! But, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make this layout!! There is a Design call over My Scraps and More and I decided to answer it with this layout. It had to me a design about yourself this is what I came up with. There is other guidelines that you can find over at My Scraps and More.

I also used this color scheme because over at The Paper Variety there is another challenge! You had to pull inspiration from this cute pic.

I was inspired by the colors!! Isn't that the cutest pic!!

Buddies and Ballerinas!!

Natalie has so much fun when she is dancing with her buddies at ballet and jazz class!! Here she is with some of her friends at the OU Children's Hospital Grand Opening of the Atrium. Not only did they dance around for everybody they also gave out butterfly suckers,kites, and coloring books!! The girls were so excited to hand them out to all of the sick children and to the doctors. I used a Jana Eubank sketch that is being used for a challenge over My Scraps and More!! There is also another great challenge going on over there too!! Which I can't wait to get to scrap this weekend!!

Beautiful Butterflies!!

Natalie and seven of her ballet buddies were asked by her past ballet teacher Ms. Susan to dance at the Grand Opening of the new Atrium at the OU Children's Hospital!! We were so honored by the request and Natalie couldn't wait to dance for the children and the people celebrating the opening!! The girls were so beautiful and they were so excited to get their faces painted with a big butterfly!! It is defiantly an experience we will not forget!! Each Butterfly represent a different girl/ballerina!!
