Sketches In Thyme Layout

I am working with the Hello Lovely paper pack from Close To My Heart and I have to say it is my favorite paper pack so far.  It has such pretty colors and flowers.  I also used the Flower Market Cricut cartridge that is exclusive to Close To My Heart.  It is one of my favorite cartridges of all time. It has many different cuts besides flowers.
I made my grandson's wedding album for them last year but had not made my own pages for my album so this paper is perfect for that.  So if you recognize these pictures that is why.  There is still time to play along with Sketches In Thyme so check them out and play along with us.  Here is my page and also the sketch.

Scrap It With A Song Layout for February 15th Reveal

I used this oh so cute picture of our dear Sara for this layout.  The song is by  Justin Timberlake - Can't Stop The Feeling.   She is so happy and upbeat I thought this picture is perfect for the song.  Our son and Sara brought a load of stuff back for us and they had to haul my exercise bike on the back.  So she was having a good time pedaling.
I used all Close To My Heart products on this page.  The paper is Hello Lovely and I used the sticker set along with the Flower Market Cartridge for the flowers.  Inks and stamp (This & That) are also CTMH.  I absolutely love this paper set.  If you would like to check out the products you can do so here CTMH .  Scrap It With A Song has really great songs to use to help inspire you so go over and check them out too.

Special Post For Scrap It With A Song

Several years ago we went camping and took our grand daughter with us.  We were camping up close to Ruidoso, NM and the scenery was absolutely gorgeous just as our grand daughter was.  We had a wonderful time.  The mountains are so beautiful and you just have a wonderful sense of how Good
Our God is.  The pop song this month at Scrap It With A Song is Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin and was inspiration for this layout.  I used a Cricut Cartridge by Ana Griffin to make the flowers and the leaf border.  It is Garden Cards.  I also used Heidi Swap acrylic butterflies.  Some CTMH paper and ink and also some paper from the Glitz Birthday Wishes paper pack and also some paper flowers from Prima.  There is still plenty of time to join us over at the SIWAS blog.

January's Mid-month reveal at Scrap It With A Song

The pop song this month is a very personal favorite with me.  In June of 2014 my husband and I were in a motorcycle wreck in California.  While I was only bruised a little, my husband had to be airlifted to a trauma hospital in Reno Nevada.  The hospital had the most amazing doctors, nurses and respiratory people.  And also all the other people there that I did not get to know personally.  My husband was on life support for 5 1/2 weeks while his body was healing.  God was an awesome God and showed me many many times over that long and at the time what felt like a never ending ordeal, just how much he loved us and all the ways he stepped in and saved us.  So you see now why this song is such a personal song for me.  It is a more recent song than the wreck but the first time I heard it, it was meant just for me.  Chris Tomlin - Good Good Father  It was my pick for this month at Scrap It With A Song.  There is plenty of time to go over to the blog and play along with us.  Here is my layout showing a pic up my husband and daughter while at Renown Hospital in Reno Nevada.
I used CTMH paper kits, ink and stamps.

December Mid-Month reveal for Scrap It With A Song

The song for this month at SIWAS for the pop girls team is either Fast Car or We Wish You A Merry Christmas and since it is almost Christmas I chose to do a Christmas song so I could wish you all a Merry Christmas.  This was last year at Christmas and we were having a wonderful Christmas. I used the Oh Deer paper from Close To My Heart.

Brother and Sister

I used this sketch at Grand Diva's Creative Corner and the challenge at Scrap Our Stash  along with the this or that challenge at Rochelle Spears Blogspot. I think we are very lucky and I am thankful that we have each other after vehicle accidents and both of us with heart disease.  I tried to stay pretty close to the sketch, and the book prompt had the lime green and the reds that I used as inspiration along with the "stole" word on the book ( no stealing our health) and you also had to use striped paper and either sequins or enamel dots. I used striped paper and sequins.  I also used glittered words, hearts, ampersand, and an arrow.   Whew I think I got it all in there lol,  So here is my layout.

Sketches In Thyme Design Team Reveal for November.

I love this time of the year! The weather is getting cooler and the leaves are turning.  That means that Thanksgiving and Christmas is just around the corner.  I have been working on Christmas pages so I thought I would do a Christmas page for this sketch.  It just seemed to fit perfectly in there.  I used one photo instead of two since my photo was a large photo. I used the Oh Deer kit by CTMH, a Heidi Swap border, Prima flower and butterfly, and the packaging from the prima flowers and CTMH ink and stickles. My beautiful niece and her family always send a family photo Christmas card so that is the photo I have decided to scrap.  Laura is an amazing photographer.  You can contact her at Laura Schroeder Photography in the Dallas Texas Area at
Here is my layout using that wonderful photo.  There is still time to upload a layout to win a prize over at Sketches In Thyme also, you have until the end of the month.

Here is the wonderful sketch by Shawn Lahr.

November Mid-month layout for Scrap It With A Song.

I used Close To My Heart Paper and made this layout with paper from the Creepers Jeepers collection.  This is a pic taken when we went out to eat for our 43 wedding anniversary.  The song for the pop team this time at Scrap It With A Song is Ellie Goulding's - I need your love.  The title and some of the song was my inspiration for this layout.  After 43 years I still need my husbands love.  Here is my layout.  I hope it inspires you to make a layout too and join us this month.  You have three chances to win a prize.
