Sally, Dick, and Jane...

Hi everyone! Today I'd like to share my first DT lo that I did for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge site.
The challenge this time is a prompt: to scrap your birthplace and year – incorporating at least two things that were popular in culture that year as an embellishment (song title, historical event, movie, hero or heroine) – you can include baby photos instead of photos of your birthplace if you wish. Please include a link to another scrapbooking challenge website in your blog posting for this. If you are shy to scrap your year of birth, then you can try some hidden journaling.
For me, I grew up in a time where Sally, Dick, and Jane were popular, so I used that as part of my!
For my link to another scrapbook challenge site I'd like to link Scrap for help. What a beautiful site! Scrap for a cause and help the invironment at the same time!

You have until the 14th of September at midnight to post your take on the challenge to be eligible for a $25.00 gift certificate prize to for this month. You will have a second chance to enter a layout for this prize on the 15th of September during our sketch challenge for September.
For wonderful inspiration, please stop by and see what Anne, the lovely owner of this site, and the other DT members have come up with!

Thank you my heavenly father....

Hi everyone! My heart, my prayers, and my thoughts go out to all those effected by the hurricane Irene that just came through. At the same time I thank God that there was not more damage where we are. I thank God that by the time it got to us, it was a tropical storm...a very scary one at that. We have been through a lot lately...tornados, which took the life of someone that I worked with, then this week the earthquake, which thank God only felt like I was having vertigo, and the lastest stress of Irene...thank you God that it is not more then what it all the people who it is more then this, to all the people who don't have power, or their house, or worse I ask that all my followers and people just stopping by, please pray for these people. Pray that God gives them peace and a spirit to rebuild their lifes!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Pixie August Challenge

Hi everyone! Today I would like to share a mini book that I made of my dd for the Pixie Dust Paperie August challenge. This month the challenge is to make something which includes an image of a girl/lady on it. I took a paper bag, cut it up and put together an accorion style book with random shots/events pertaining to my youngest dd. The cover has a tag with strings, which I wrap around the brad on the back cover to hold it together.

Sassy Lil' Sketches - first DT lo!

Hi everyone! Today I'd like to share this lo that I did, of my hubby and dd ,for my first DT lo for the wonderful Sassy Lil' Sketches challenge site. Since I'm on the 'Switch it up team', I get to take the wonderful sketch, by Cherie, and switch it up anyway that I want...yup, I get to flip, rotate, use a different number or orientation of pics, make it a 2 pager, or anything else that I can think of that shows the readers how to stretch the use of the fun is that!

For this challenge, I  turned the sketch, used one pic, moved a square behind it, took the banner from the side and moved it out in the shape of a flower cluster, and then moved the journaling block downward. Thank you for this wonderful honor Katie and Cherie...I had a blast with this!

The wonderful Sponsors for this challenge are:

The wonderful Paper Sponsor is Apron Strings Designs   

The wonderful Digi Sponsor   is Sassy Studio Designs
