School Days are Here Again!

So.  It’s getting to be September.  Riley will be starting full day kindergarten, which is crazy!  It seems like yesterday he was just a baby!

Our challenge at Red Carpet Studio is to create a project based on the movie Billy Madison.



So the challenge this week is to create a project using some “back to school’ supplies.  It can be actual supplies, or things like ink, paint, stamps, coloring… Here is my project for you.. a little walk down memory lane for me.   I went old school and used a lot of UHU glue on this one..LOL  It’s a bit hard to tell but I also did some inking, and my journaling is in plain ol’ black pen :)



The rest of the DT has some wonderful projects for you and we hope you will play along with us!


Cake Rules!

As you read this, I am actually out camping in BC for a much needed holiday with my family :)

Our new challenge is up and running this week at Red Carpet Studio.  Based on one of my favorite movies of all time (no one makes movies like John Hughes did :( )

The challenge is to create a project with a birthday theme to it.  Surely an easy one this time around!  Here is what I have for you today.  Another fun layout of my favorite kiddo Riley on his first birthday!


For this layout I actually used the sketch provided by Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine’s monthly sketch challenge (which this month is provided by the ever talented Sue Sykes!).  I rotated the sketch for this layout.


A fun sketch!  I used some Kaisercraft and October Afternoon DP for this one.  I love all those decorative brads which worked perfectly for this layout (from MME).  The rest of my embellishments were from Michael’s, the $ store and my stash :)  I hope you will play along with our challenge on the Blog and don’t forget to try the sketch yourself and play upload to the CS blog!

At the Beach

Sorry.  I’m a day behind in posting this.  Our new challenge is up and running at Use Your Stuff this week.  Still celebrating summer our theme is At the Beach…we’re looking to see your fun beach-y projects.

Here’s a layout I did of Riley’s first time at the beach when we went to Cuba.  He tried to eat it. :)  Needless to say, we spent the rest of the time at the pool.  LOL



Don’t forget to hop over to the blog and play along with us.  We can’t wait to see you!


Music Man

Welcome to Sunday in my world.  Not a lot going on although it is my nephew’s birthday so we are going to go help him celebrate.

Head on over to the Red Carpet Studio blog.  Our challenge this week is inspired by the movie Pitch Perfect (Love it!)


The challenge is to incorporate music into your project.  It could be a song title, some music DP or perhaps your favorite line.

Here’s mine of (of course) Riley

unnamed (5)Even as a baby he loved listening to music.  Now that he’s older he plays around a lot but when he was younger he would sit on Dad’s knee, listen to the music and play with the drum sticks.

Make sure you stop by the bog and check out the great projects this week and play along with us!



Playing Catch up

Hey everyone!  I apologize for the delay in posting.  July is a busy month for me with my son’s birthday, my father in laws, as well as Stampede and then some much needed time away with my husband. :)

In case you haven’t stopped by yet, you need to pop over to Red Carpet Studio and check out the new challenge.  The DT has some great projects with our GROWN UPS CHALLENGE

THE CHALLENGE:  Create a project that features “a kid at heart.”  Amusement parks, summertime fun, family get togethers…we can’t wait to see your inspiration!

This is literally a fun challenge and I hope that you will stop by and play along with us.  We can’t wait to see your ‘kid at heart’.  I don’t have a project for this challenge but the rest of the DT has some great ones that will make you smile and we hope will inspire you to let loose your inner child :)


Hello everyone! There’s a new challenge up at Use Your Stuff this week.  Our theme is Leaves!  Now that it is summer here, it’s nice to see the leaves green and bright on the trees!

For the challenge, I decided to go with an ATC.  I found some cute leaf paper and added a heat embossed sentiment.  The butterflies are a glittered chipboard that I bought at M’s.  I hope you like it and hope you will play along with us this week.


Monster Jam fun

So last year we took Riley to his first Monster Jam..oh did that boy have fun! He was in monster truck heaven.  He brought his Gravedigger monster truck to be signed by the drivers, which looked soooo small compared to the real Gravedigger :)

I thought I would use some of those pictures for a fun layout for Renee’s chipboard/wood veneer challenge at Use Your Stuff this week.  I’m sure we all have tonz of these in our stashes, I know I do!  I just can’t get enough of them actually.  So make sure you play along with us for this week’s challenge!
