You are my Sunshine

For the Noel Mignon challenge this week we were to include a sunshine somewhere on our project.

For some designers the sun was easy to find, for others it was more "hidden" on the page.

I decided to make the sunshine on my page a big design element on an otherwise simple layout:

journaling challenge with Noel Mignon

It's Saturday so that means another new layout so share!

This week I am playing along with the journaling challenge at Noel Mignon. We simply had to create handwritten journaling lines on a page. Simple, right? Yes! It's something that I do a lot of the time anyway.

For this project I used the Trailblazer Daily Diary kit, the "Project Life" style kit for April from Noel Mignon. I took on the challenge this month of using this kit on traditional layouts and other projects.

Here is my page:

Have a great weekend and check back again for a new challenge and some fun with the May kit from Noel Mignon.

Noel Mignon Trailblazer kit and Let's Get Sketchy!

Hi again!

Today I have a layout to share with you that I created using a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy!

The Noel Mignon team was invited to contribute this month and I got to use this fabulous sketch:

I created this layout using the sketch and the Trailblazer Daily Diary kit from Noel Mignon.

Thanks for stopping in today!

new layout for the week

Hello again!

Here is my new layout for this week using the Trailblazer Daily Diary kit from Noel Mignon:

For this month I got the Daily Diary kit to play with but instead of using the kit in a pocket page format I will be using the product on traditional layouts. 

The color scheme for this kit is quite different from the pink flowery one last month but it goes so well with this picture of Aimee and her grandparents on her baptism day. It is sweet for me to scrapbook pictures of my father-in-law now since his passing. It makes me sad to see pictures but reminds me of so many beautiful  memories that we have. 

Our challenge for the week was to "Cut it out." For this I simply used a circle punch to cut a round hole in the 2"x3" card on the bottom left of the page and added  sticker heart to the center.

an awesome day

Today I have another Noel Mignon layout to share.

It seems that these weekly assignments are all I get time to scrap anymore but I enjoy the creative time.

Here is my layout for this week:

This page was created using papers and embellishments from the Picture Perfect Classic Kit. 

And one more detail shot: 

Have a great day!

We are off to watch the kids' soccer games this morning, have church conference to watch and we might even go to the rodeo. 

Every day is so full. 

I am grateful for the fun memories.

for Noel Mignon this week

My father-in-law passed away earlier this week and because of this I am grateful that I did some extra scrapping last week. I haven't had any time to be creative this week.

Here is the layout that I created for Noel Mignon for this week using the Picture Perfect classic kit:

Have a great weekend

ric rac challenge at Noel Mignon

Hello again!

It seems my weekend posts are the only ones I get to lately but at least I am getting to scrap a little bit and I love that!

Today I have another layout to share with you using this month's kit, "Picture Perfect," from Noel Mignon.

Our challenge this week was to use the adhesive ric rac from the kit in a fun way. 

I cut short strips and intermingled those with washi tape (also included in the kit).

Here are a couple of close-up shots:

Have a wonderful weekend!

taking the challenge at Noel Mignon

For this week's challenge at Noel Mignon kit club the design team was supposed to try something new.

I decided to give pocket page scrapbooking a try.

It was a little intimidating since I tend to stick to cards and scrapbook pages but this is what I came up with using the Heart of Gold classic kit.

And here are some detail shots: 

Well, it wasn't horrible for a first try, I don't think. 

What have you challenged yourself to do lately? 

Have a great weekend.

hidden journaling and Noel Mignon

I have another project to share today!

This page, just like the last two, were created using the "Heart of Gold" classic kit from the Noel Mignon kit club. Our challenge this week was to create an interactive element so I used the hearts on my page to add some hidden journaling.

Have a fantastic weekend!

love for Austin

Back in November we got to take a family trip to Austin, TX for Sarah's level 5 State gymnastics meet.

We'd never been to Austin, so we were excited for our little adventure.

Because Sarah didn't compete until later in the day we decided to do a little bit of sightseeing in the morning on the day of her meet. We went to the State Capitol builidng, had a tour of the inside and the grounds and also visited a Texas history museum closeby. It was perfect because Sarah had been studying Texas history. Being able to tour the capitol and museum were a lot of fun than just reading about the events in a history book.

My project for Noel Mignon this week features a few pictures from that trip:

This layout features the Heart of Gold kit from Noel Mignon and this week's challenge was to use flowers on our project. I am typically not a very flowery person and I struggle to use flowers on pages without them looking too gaudy but I liked these little monochromatic jeweled flowers in the February kit. 

I used a variety of papers on this page, some florals to go with the week's challenge and others to ground the page and give more variety. I tucked a chipboard frame under the corner of one of the pictures, tucked a bow under the edge of the flowers and added a few gold enamel stars around the page. 

Do you enjoy using flowers on your project? 

Have a great weekend!
