Peace, Love & Scrapbooking - July Kit Inspiration

So I'm a little behind on my Design Team duties for Peace, Love & Scrapbooking ... life has been busy this summer!  I spent Saturday scrapping with my good friend, Lisa, and was able to complete this page.    I'm totally IN LOVE with the result!   What do you think?

My Creative Sketches - August Sketch

In our quest to find more scrappy challenge blogs last Saturday ... my friend, Lisa, and I happened upon My Creative Sketches!   We're totally thrilled to get to play along!!

Another page I'm THRILLED with!   It isn't very detailed but I love the combo of paper that I chose ... everything just worked for me this time ... thanks for looking!

Sketch N Scrap - 16

Oh, how I love to create with sketches!   Especially when my MoJo is nowhere to be found!  Thankfully, that wasn't the case with this page ... I am very happy with my result!

Inspiration Sketch:

Sketches In Thyme - September #1

I totally adore the sketch over at Sketches In Thyme right now ... but I'm not thrilled with my result.  I think it's the color palette I chose to work with ... not typical colors for me, and I think that's the problem.  Oh well ... since I took the time to create the page, I might as well enter it .... don't we all have a page or 2 that aren't our favorites?   I was scrapping with my friend, Lisa, on Saturday and we got quite a bit done ... this was the only page that I said 'eh' to ... so I guess I didn't do too badly!

Kraft It Up - September

I'm a BIG fan of Kraft paper ... so this wasn't too far of a stretch at all ...

Twist my arm for any type of a color challenge as well :)   Here's what I came up with ... I'm thrilled with the result!

as always, comments are apprecaited!

CSI - Case File #35

All good things must come to an end.  Sadly, that's where I'm at with my awesome experience as a Guest Detective over at C.S.I.  Debbi does an awesome job running that challenge site, and it has been a pleasure to work with her!  Peace Love and Scrapbooking is sponsoring the prize for the month of September, so be sure to pop on over and participate for a chance to win!

Here is the inspirational Case File #35 (I could have EASILY created several layouts for this one!)

 These are the pages that Lisa and I came up with ... again, we were thrilled to have been a part of the August challenges over at C.S.I.

Color Me Scrappy - Challenge #11

Sigh.  Summer is nearing the end and that means that the golf season is winding down.  I have spent a LOT of time golfing and loving every minute of it.  I have, however, managed to find time to get somewhere around 20-25 pages done this summer ... so I feel some sense of accomplishment over that.  With the end of the warm weather comes the start of another favorite season of mine:  SCRAPBOOKING SEASON!! 

Peace, Love & Scrapbooking is back as the September sponsor at Color Me Scrappy and we're thrilled to have them!  Their kits are very unique, they pair several different manufacturers into one kit ... and everything coordinates perfectly!  There is always enough products for at least 4 complete layouts, with lots of goodies left over for future pages!  Another unique thing about them:  NO SUBSCRIPTIONS!  Everything is one SUPER LOW PRICE!  Stop on by and check them out, you won't be disappointed!

I chose this color palette for Color Me Scrappy and really thought I'd have an easy time with it ... turns out, I struggled at first.   Everything I pulled out seemed too busy ... I've really been drawn to more simple layouts (thank you, Pinterest!) and have been trying to channel those scrappy goddesses into my own work ...

Here's my take on the challenge:

Check out the AWESOME page by my dear friend, Lisa Haiss:

Don't forget to stop over to Color Me Scrappy to see what the rest of the very talented design team came up with ... seriously, go there ... those pages ROCK!
