Creative Thursday ~ Friends and Angels @ WOW

I had one more WOW piece to work with and as much as I loved that chipboard, I found myself devoid of all inspiration. So I took a walk around looking for a sketch to jump start the process. I {re}found my friend Pam's blog and a fun sketch to boot. Yes, another McKenna layout, I must play catch up after this with some Matthew pages...

See this on XoXo, too...

Friends and Angels by Lindsey Krauss.
Supplies: Paper: Daisy Bucket Designs, Brads, Staples: Making Memories, Flowers: Prima Marketing, Mist: Tattered Angels, Title: Words or Whatever. Sketch: Pamela Young.
For the WoW title, I colored with Sharpies (ombre and all) and then misted with Tattered Angels Dragonfly and Party Pink (my two colors of choice as of late). I found the pink flowers that I misted for my last projects and didn't use and paired those up with a few little yellow petals to complement the dark blue. The sunshine was an afterthought, after I was trying to arrange my banner scraps. And as haphazardly as I tried to arrange my banner pieces, somehow they still came out, well, arranged. :) 

Thanks for looking and another huge thanks to Words or Whatever for donating pieces and prizes. These are truly one of my favorite chipboard companies to work with - I think it's because of the flexibility of the pieces. 

Anyhow, enjoy. and a verse to go with friends and angels:
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
I'm on this journey with "edification", as I started and learned of in our own Graceland kids ministry. Love that.

Tuesday Special ~ Sketch + Flower Stash at SOS!

I don't get much done in the scrapbook lately, but SoS keeps me going. :) Squeezed this one in last weekend -

Laugh by Lindsey Krauss. 
Did you see the sketch? Yum. Add three flowers, and you're in.

I flipped through some recent photos of the fam & I on a real tourist family field trip to NYC. I was taking some pics of the kids and their dad and the boat blew its horn. I just love the faces she made, and I'm so glad I caught them on camera! Too cute -

As for the layout, I started the background with crayon - yes, real Crayola. I sprayed with a little TA (who, by the way, is abandoning their old website and its viruses while developing a new one; just in case you noticed! Update here.)

Then the layers just kept comin'... The strip mostly hidden at the bottom of the photo is actually a piece I laid down a few weeks ago to spray something else. The colors happened to match, so I stuck it on there to start. Then let's talk stash! Queen & Co.! Jolee's! Daisy D's! Yes, we definitely covered Scrapping Our Stash here!

Thanks for stopping by, see more here!

Creative Thursdayl ~ WOW & SOS!

A patterned paper party to go with some sweet new chipboard!
Actually, I made a mistake and accidentally combined two design team layouts, but the more, the merrier. :) Scrap away!
find that sweet chipboard here: WOW
find this fun challenge here: SOS

JUMP by Lindsey Krauss.
Supplies: Paper: Making Memories, Rhonna Farrer, Lilly Bee Design; Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Stickers: Making Memories; Artisan Tape: Pink Paislee; Marker: Sharpie; Mist: Tattered Angels; Glitter: Stickles, Studio G; letters: VivAmerica;
Chipboard: Words or Whatever.
Scrap Can you tell I'm trying to get rid of those old monograms? I could almost spell JUMP, and was going to hide the letters in all that patterned paper, but I was missing an 'm'. So we got a 'j' with lots of extra polka dots - my favorite, anyway! It looked too plain when I got done, so I added the pink spray at the very end. 

Oh, and don't do what I did - I forgot rub-ons! You have to successfully enter a layout with all parts of the challenge to win over at SOS... Got them in, tho; be sure you do, too!
