VIA

Next up is a layout of my son on when we took a VIA train trip from Edmonton to Vancouver this past spring.

The journalling reads:
Wehn my car was ready to be picked up in Vancouver, we decided to take the train one-way from Edmonton to Vancouver. It was a once in a lifetime experience with wonderful food and breath taking views. Kyle loved every minute of the ride from wandering around, wtching movies, looking out the window, playing with his toys or snuggling. It was a 26 hour ride with only 2 stops (one while we slept). March 14-15 2017

This layout is really special because my son picked out the papers and stickers himself at the scrapbook store with our train trip pictures in mind.


I used Let's Scrap 5-1-17 sketch because as soon as I saw it the bookmarks reminded me of tickets so it was just perfect for the train photos: http://letsscrapsketches.blogspot.ca/2017/05/5-1-17-new-sketch.html

Juliet's birthday - ScrapRoom challenges

Next up are some layouts I made from my friend's daughter first birthday a couple of summers ago (she will be three this year).

First up is one I created is one of my son and his friend Jackson waiting for food. I was inspired by the scraproom jumpstart sketch: http://thescraproomblog.blogspot.ca/2017/05/may-jumpstart-sketch-challenge-and.html


Here is my take:

Next up is a layout created based on the Scraproom group facebook throwback sketch challenge, here the kids were busy playing games and having fun together:
No automatic alt text available.

Here is mine:

Finally is the birthday girl herself eating a birthday cupcake. I used The ScrapRoom's freaky fast challenge:


Here is my take:

This is us

my son loves picking his nana up from the airport when she flies in. I love his expressions and how excited he is. I took these pictures as soon as he saw here.

I am submitting this for Let's Scrap NSD special challenge: http://letsscrapsketches.blogspot.ca/2017/05/nsd-special-challenge.html

I went with the top row of banners, stitiching (faux) and ink splatters. 


I am also entering this for May's Scrap the Boys May challenge as it is photos my my mom with my son. I used lots of purple and a flower as i was inspired by the photo: http://scraptheboys.blogspot.ca/2017/05/may-challenge.html

For the first time in forever

Last up tonight is a fun layout of a concert my son and I went to last year. It was a princess concert in Plamondon and it was a great time.

I created this for Scrap the Girls April Mood board challenge: 

I was inspired by the colours, the car (as we had to drive to the concert) and the water (because Elsa makes it snow and when snow melts it makes water).  Thank you for stopping by and for your wonderful comments, hope you can play along with Scrap the Girls: http://scrap-the-girls.blogspot.ca/2017/04/april-challenge-seaglass-moodboard.html

happy birthday card

my nephew's birthday party was yesterday, but unfortunately we got a blizzard and didn't feel safe travelling so we stayed home. I did however, make him a birthday card (with minions of course since that is his favorite)!!!


I stamped happy birthday over and over the background piece, the minion washi tape and stickers I got specifically for my nephew.

I used sketch~n~scrap card sketch #96:
