Papaw's Pumpkin

I hope you've had a great Saturday!  I finally had time over the past week or so to make some layouts in my craft room, so I thought I would share one with you tonight.  I found this sketch at Let's Get Sketchy:

I've had some "older" photos on my scrap desk for quite a while and decided I would use one to go along with this sketch.

The sketch didn't have a designated place for journaling, so I decided to do my journaling around the edges of the patterned paper pieces.

I can't believe it's the last day of September already!  Where has this year gone?  Thought I would share my entry for the Sketches in Thyme Sketch #292.  Here's the sketch:

Here's my take on the sketch:

This was my youngest son's first birthday; he's now eight!  He wasn't quite sure what to do with the cake at first, but when he got into it, he had a blast!  Once he was finished, we took him straight to the bathtub, and the water turned red.  LOL!

Stick It Down Guest Designer

Happy Friday, everyone!  I'm here today to share my card as Guest Designer at Stick It Down!  Just as a refresher, here's this month's card sketch:

Here's my take on the sketch:

I really love the way my card came out!  I had a new stamp and die set from The {Stamps} of Life that I hadn't had the chance to use yet, so I was SUPER excited to use it!  I colored each layer of the rainbow then used Stickles on those layers and on the clouds for some extra pop.

Thanks to the ladies at Stick It Down for having me back as a Guest Designer!  I had a great time working with this sketch!

My Teacher Rules Blog Hop

Welcome to the MY TEACHER RULES Blog Hop!  School is in full force across the country, and what better way to start the year than to celebrate those amazing educators that make it possible for kiddos to learn so much!  Thank you for joining us in a day honoring all the hard working teachers out there!!

You should have arrived from Angela's classroom, but if you need to start at the beginning of the line, Connie Can Crop is the beginning of this back to the books blog hop.

This is a one-day blog hop, but you have until Sunday to finish hopping and leaving your love for all of these talented crafters.  We have an awesome sponsor for this month!  

One lucky winner will win $20 in SVG images of your choice.  Be sure to check out her shop online HERE and visit her on Facebook HERE.

What do you need to do to win?  Easy . . . become a follower of each of the fabulous blogs in this hop and leave each of them a comment letting them know what you like best about their projects.  You will have until 10 pm Sunday to finish the hop and leave your comments.  Winners will be announced on Wednesday 9/13/17 at Connie Can Crop.  Be sure to follow everyone and leave a comment along the way!

It's time to get schooled!  The project I have for you today is sort-of teacher related.  I found this set of school-themed scrapbook papers

and knew they would be perfect to use for school pictures of my boys!  I bought multiple sets of these (since they're double sided), so I could use one side for the picture and the other side to record the year, school, and teacher.

Now hop on over to Marji!

Here's our amazing lineup in case you get lost:
