Pages In Time-Literally

I waited and waited on scrapping the photo of my Aunt that I posted awhile back. It was such a meaningful picture for me, I wanted to make sure I got it just right. Since it's a "vintage" photo my first thought was Graphic 45 or Webster's but then the more I looked at the photo I thought about how young she was and thought of something vibrant and playful! I really love this October Afternoon line. I'll say no more about my Aunt Alice for the moment, no tears, no wishes for more time with her...just a page with a beautiful girl caught in a moment of peace.

For my Pages In Time project this week I chose to use the June Kit Sketch Of The Month.
Here's my take on the sketch.

Scrapbook Circle

So you all know that I love me some product and kit's are my favorites! Scrapbook Circle is one that I've been getting on and off for the last couple of years. I will say that the way these kit's having been looking the last few months? Well I will be on! lol
With so many sites affected by ning I thought I would share their new site addy and a peek of July's Kit. Lisa Andrews is the owner and I can tell you, the kit always comes loaded with goodies and in a timely manner. I can't wait to get July's!

Challenge Time

This weeks Thursday Sketch Challenge over at Pages In Time, offered yet another fabulous sketch! I used an "old" pic of my daughter, someday I will catch up right? lol Anyway here's my take on this weeks sketch. I am continuing with my Jenni Bowlin binge and added some Basic Grey as well.

As one of our first Design Team projects we were challenged to use the site's new logo. This is what I came up with. It is mostly all Prima except for the lace. That's a vintage piece my scrappy friend Gayle shared with me. Thanks Gayle!

Pages In Time Sketch Blog

Here is my first DT project for Pages In Time. They also have their own Thursday Sketch Blog. If you like sketches check it out. I spent most of my weekend finding the surface of my scrap table but managed to get this page done. Funny that I spent half of Saturday cleaning my space and by cleaning I really mean moving massive piles of scrap stuff from one spot to the other. Speaking of which JESS, if I ever get it all together I have a nice little box of goodies for you! Anyway, after all the work I did to find the surface of my craft table? I brought my paper, picture, cutter, scissors and adhesive into the family room and sat on the floor and scrapped! I guess I don't need all that crap after all. Shhhhh though. Don't tell my hubby! The only thing I had to go back to the scrap room for were the letters, crepe paper and a single button. I worked on another page this morning but that is not photographed yet. Can I tell you?? NY is the new London. Rain, rain, rain!!!

I had to reverse the sketch it to make the sun work as a circle element but I think I stayed pretty true to the sketch this time. The dress my daughter is wearing is not a favorite of mine but I changed my thinking on that when I saw that it matched this paper. giggle. I used mostly all Jenni Bowling for this page and that makes me happy. I love her stuff but don't always have photo's to go with her paper or maybe I like it so much I just hoard it!!
