More Than Brothers

It's been a busy week so far and it's only Wednesday. Having a hard time getting any layouts done this week and I am now officially 4 sketches behind including this one.

I just got a bunch of studio shot back from the printers so it was good inspiration for me to use on this sketch challenge #17

I spent some time yesterday altering a pair of Mickey Ears so my daughter would have something to wear with her Haunted Mansion maid costume for their upcoming Disney HW party trip. I did  manage to squeeze out this layout last night and have another one two thirds of they way done, but before I can scrap today I need to go make dh a chocolate pie (his favorite) for being such a trooper while I've been so busy.

Pool Time

Wanted to make sure you had something for today even though I'm out and about running errands. This double page was a sketch challenge and I had some extremely old KI Memories pp that I thought worked really well with the pool unicorn.

Disney Vacation

Well yesterday I was busy at a local art show. I found this great place that lets me sell my etsy stuff for 4 hrs with no overhead fee, which means I didn't scrap yesterday and today was all about my etsy shop loading and listing new items. I orginally started with little girls skirts but now I have boys button up shirts, tote bags, zipper bags, canvas bags, baby bibs and not yet uploaded burp cloths. So another day of no scrapping which means I am now 2 sketches behind. And tomorrow is my errand day so hoping I can manage some time in afterwards.

Any hoo this is part B of the sketchtember #5 challenge. I really had to think long and hard about this one. Those triangles were definitely out of my comfort zone. The twists are vellum and thread which I was able to incoporate both.

For this challenge I was supposed to use giant lettering and for bonus pts if I did a double page, so I did. I found a bunch of random chipboard letters and decided to paint them and mimic the pp colors. The diecuts are really quite cute, the black is a velvet paper and it wants me to buy more they were from Paper Wizard, in fact now that I am churning out all these Disney pages I feel like I'd like some more titles and diecuts.

I really love the color combination on these pages.

Angel In Disguise

This was part B to the sketchtemper #12 challenge  (find it here). So all of these challenges come with twists and the challenge that contains 2 sketches have a twist for each one so you get extra pts for using both twists on one layout. 

Lately I have been forgetting all about those twists so on this one I remembered, I added both a glitter bird and flower and then the other twist was embossing or texture so I embossed the Angel letters with those 2x2 embossing plates from QK, never thought I'd use those again or maybe I did and thus I never purged myself of them. 

Anyhoo I lucked out with this sketch because I had a die (from papertrey ink) that created my stripes for me so I just had to launch off of that..and of course finding the right photo. Only thing I didn't do here which I don't like to is omit some journaling but I guess once in a while is ok.

A little Magic

Another sketch challenge, this one was fun; sketch, theme and colors. I wanted to use my Disney themed pp but lets face black, red, yellow doesn't quite go with HW themed pictures so I used what else HW pp, specifically Bella Blvd. And hard to find right picutres but I thought I'd go with documenting one of my favorite rides and time of year at Disneyland. 

The challenge and sketch can be found here.

This was another sketch challenge for the 2peasrefugees sketchtember #7 challenge. I am quite frankly impressed with the sketches and how it has motivated me to get these pages done. I have contemplated several times about all the stuff I have in my room and what will happen to it if I should die or perhaps I should just sell it if I'm not going to scrapbook anymore, frankly I didn't want to stop and told myself I had years to still complete these pages but yet I just hadn't touched them so this is kind of a relief for me, to know I can get them done.
