Using our tools...getting by.....making do....

Lace's so pretty and really fun to use...but we never seem to have it at home when we need it....or if you do its the wrong type or color...So why not make your own...Thats what I did

When I saw a challenge to use that ugly paper...I started with my photos...I knew I wanted to do a layout on our new husky I started searching through the deepest, darkest, depths of my early scrapin days where the ugly paper lies....
When I came across this zebra print it was perfect for the black & white color of the huskies...then I kept digging I found 3 matching pieces from Heidi Grace autumn 2003 it was dated on the back....I got to work trying my best to make the uglyness not stand out so much....The challenge wanted 1 ugly 12x12 background least 3 other pieces of ugly paper....stitching....glimmer all the points...
I made a hidden tag with the story of Shelby I also added that this layout was created for a challenge using ugly paper...not that in a few years I look at this and say WHAT THE HECK was I thinking!!!!!!!
Great challenge....4 ugly sheets of paper gone only 999 more to go....

A rainy Sunday Morning...

It's a rainy Sunday morning, and the dogs are sleeping that gives me time to get my scraproom back in order...and do some layouts. On Friday we moved everything around. I gained a whole lot more room...Now Ashley will have her own table to scrap. Heavens knows I could not share my 3 tables with her LOL. Any way. I did a layout for Sketches in Thyme

Good afternoon
Man Wednesday already..where does the time go??
I have been pretty busy keeping up with my different design team projects and
in the back of my mind I am thinking Halloween projects....So one of these days you might see some Halloween or maybe even Christmas..
Here are a few layouts I did the past few days.

I have never bought any scrapbooking kits...the other day I decided to give Lucky Girl Crafts a try...I got 2 kits and wow they were packed with all kinds of goodness.. They are having something special now if you tell them that I sent you I could win something so go check them out and tell them Scrapydoglover sent you...Here is the first layout I did with one of the kits.

Oh man until I posted and read over my post I did not even relize that I used the same photo of my granddaughter....I sometimes scrap the same photo a few times and now you can see that I do..I dont mind becuase most likley these layouts will end up in different albums and go to different people.
