Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #77

Hi all! Just stopping by quick to show you all my version of AHSC #77! I had a pretty steady week, and didn't have time to start last Monday! So.....better late than never! I am at a scrapbook retreat this weekend, so I had some time to sneak this in! :D YAY!!! I decided to try out a LO (layout) instead of a card! Using a photo was a challenge! ;) {Challenge.....accepted!}

#77 Challenge:

My Version:


CTMH - Floretine scraps
CTMH - embellies
My Mind's Eye - Dolled Up "Day" Worn Paper Designed by                                  Jen Allyson

Hope you enjoy!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #76

It's Monday!

I'm back to play again! I so enjoyed creating the sketch from last week! :D You can find this week's sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #76

Here is this week's sketch:

Here is what I came up with:

Supplies:CTMH card base
CTMH ink :Chocolate (distressing)
My Mind's Eye scraps

Now, when I first saw this challenge...that's exactly what it was....a challenge. I am not a fan of flowers. I mean, I love flowers but to scrapbook/design with them....meh....let's call it a weakness. The good thing about these challenges....(or what I've learned thus far!) is that you can look at the sketch...and make of it what you will! It's your own interpretation of how you want to use it! I love it! These challenges are also "forcing" me to create AND use up my stash! {Who isn't a craft hoarder?!} 

I did a second card just for fun here:

Thank you AHSC for all the Monday morning sketches! I look forward to Mondays now!! :D

Some of my weekend finds!

I took a trip to the "big city" this past weekend....SASKATOON! ooh, ahhh! 
I was able to spend the entire day to myself! No kids to chase, or to listen to wining! (Thanks Mom!!) I had a great visit with my sister and her family! (Love you guys!) And did some shopping of course! Here are some of the treasures I picked up along the way!

Winners find #1! I saw this beauty and my automatic thought kicks in and says, "hey, you can totally make that!" And then reality kicks in and says, "mmmm, ya, no!" So I picked this beauty up for $20!! It will be a beautiful addition to my Master Bedroom Makeover! (Spring 2015 project!)

Winners find #2! There were 2 of these boxes on the clearance racks; 1 was $15 and full of scratches, rips, and stains :( and this one was $12 and in pretty great condition! :D 

THIS. Love this! The photo does not do justice to the color of this treasure! :D My Mom-in-law's next door neighbour saw on Facebook that I was looking for old suitcases, she called me up to come see her before I left, and put this in my hand! THANK YOU SYLVIA!! :D

"Betty" & "Priscilla" Picked these fabulous doll stamps up from Bri's Scrapbook Therapy

AND OF COURSE.....Michaels Haul!!!! The nearest Michaels is 2 hours away from me, so I do try to make a point of going there when I can! I am using the 12 x 12 paper for my summer time album, and the 6 x 6 for my Fan Expo album.
