I also decided to get involved again at The Outlawz Challenges and found their Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  Here's the sketch to work with:

I decided to use the sketch for a layout.

In entering challenges, I also decided to get involved at Soul Scrappers again.  For this month, they have a sketch challenge (SC142) using this sketch:

Here's my take on the sketch:

Diamond was our first cat; she just showed up on our carport one day when I was a teenager and eventually wooed her way inside.  She loved to sleep on my bed and always sat at the back door and meowed when she needed to go outside to use the bathroom.  Unfortunately, we found lying her in the neighbors yard one day, and she had passed away. 😢  She was such a wonderful kitty!

Supplies Used
     *Cat Icons
     *Element Sticker
     *Kitty Paws
     *Kitty Plaid
~ZIG Writer in Pure Black

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  Happy scrapping, everyone!  Thanks for stopping by!

I'll be back around the first of April to share my March creations.  I'm planning to get quite a bit more done between now and the end of the month!  Thanks for stopping by!  Happy scrapping!

January 2020 Creations

Happy weekend, everyone!  Our world is living in some crazy times right now, so I hope I can brighten your day by sharing my creations.  I'm in an online scrapbook group, Scrappin' 'n' Chattin', and we recently (re)started a 52-Week Layout Challenge.  The point of the challenge is to complete one layout a week for every week of the year.  At the end of the year, you have fifty-two layouts to add to your albums!  We also have monthly layout challenges, a quarterly sketch challenge, monthly BINGO, and a monthly twenty-four hour challenge that helps us be creative.

I have to admit that I didn't get a lot of layouts done in 2019 (for the past couple of years, actually), so having the group start the 52-Week Layout Challenge again has really helped jump start my creativity again.  I thought at the end of each month that I would share everything I created in hopes that I can give others some crafty inspiration!  Here's everything I completed in January of this year:

I hope you get some inspiration from my creations!  Happy scrapping, everyone!  Thanks for stopping by!

Lasting Memories March Challenge

I haven't been in the layout challenge game (on blogs, anyway) for a LOOOOONG time, so I thought I'd jump back in every now and then!  I was on the Design Team at Lasting Memories back in 2011, so I thought I'd start there.  Their first challenge for March was Mix and Match Patterned Paper, so I thought this layout fit the theme perfectly:

Supplies Used
     *Just My Type
     *Element Sticker
     *Create Beauty
     *Makers Gonna Make
     *Element Sticker
~Timeless Twine Lemonade Yellow
~ZIG Writer Pure Pink   

I hope everyone has a great scrappy weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

Duke Duke Duke

Oh my goodness!!!  Has it really been a year since I posted ANYTHING?!?  Last year was such a crazy year for me that it's actually not surprising.  Hopefully 2020 will be better!

I'm trying to make more layouts this year, so I thought I would include one of our favorite kitty, Duke.  Unfortunately, Duke was hit by a car a couple of months ago and didn't make it. 😭  He was such a loving kitty and always wanted to be in your face, around you, or just part of whatever you were doing.

I used the January single page sketch from Stick It Down.

Stay tuned for more layouts this year!  Hope everyone has a great weekend!
