Catching up

I've been trying to reorganize my scrap room so that supplies are better grouped into categories and so they're more accessible. I spent some time working on that goal last week, but I need a break from sorting, organizing and catetorizing. This weekend I've been catching up on a few challenges.

First up is a layout I created using Sketches in Thyme's sketch #291 by Shawn Lahr. I used Photoplay's "Summer Daydreams" paper collection pack for this fun page: 


The photos were taken in July 2015 when I vacationed with my youngest daughter and her two little ones in Minocqua, Wisconsin. The kids loved fishing, but not touching the fish because "ewww, that's gross!"

This layout filled two different challenges (nothing like multi-tasking!) I used the Sept. 3 sketch from the Citrus Twist Kits blog for the kit club's weekly sketch challenge. The completed layout also filled the September 9 challenge to use the song title "I Hope You Dance" on the Cookin' Up Creations forum. I pulled papers and embellishments from my May, June and July Citrus Twist leftovers and made a mixed media background:


Cookin'Up Creations features challenges every Wednesday and Saturday; each entered layout earns a participant one entry into the monthly prize drawing for a gift card to the online store of thewinner's choice. New members are always welcome.

I created this layout for Sketches in Thyme's sketch #290 challenge, but missed the posting deadline. Here it is anyway, just because my grandson is so cute! I used the August Citrus Twist kit:


 Thanks for looking. Have a great week!
