500 Miles with Scrap it With a Song

Hi everyone! Scrap it With a Song has some new challenges this month. One of the challenges is the song "500 Miles" by the Proclaimers. I can't stop singing this song!

I decided to use another one of my favorite photos from the March For Babies walk I participated in earlier this year.

I used some of my Authentique scraps that I had. That's my favorite part about Smash books - I can use all those pretty little scraps that I can't bear to throw away! If you are interested in this or any of the Scrap it With a Song challenges (there's a new one every week!), please visit their blog for more information. Challenges run all month long so you have plenty of time!

Thanks for reading!

Beach Card and Layout

My last two projects for the month are up on the Pages From the Heart blog this week. I was given the "Fresh" collection by Authentique and I love it! My favorite part of summer is going to the beach and Authentique's take on beachy colors is perfect.

This month I made a photo tray as well as a card and a layout. The layout features pictures of my husband and I in Costa Rica last year.

You can read the supply list and see some more pictures over on the Pages From the Heart blog. You can also see these projects in person at the store in Monrovia.

Thanks for reading!

A Beach Day Photo Tray You Say?

This is my week over on the Pages From the Heart blog. I made three projects using the Authentique "Fresh" collection. It's a beach-themed collection but the colors work for just about any event!

My grandma comes to visit every summer and the one thing she always wants to do is dip her feet in the ocean. I wanted a special way to display these pictures and photo trays are a great means for that.

You can read more about this project as well as see the supply list over on the Pages From the Heart blog. I will also be teaching this as a class on August 23rd at Pages! Thanks for reading!

Going My Own Scrap it with a Song!

This week I am off to cheer camp! As you read this, I am probably in the hot sun listening to hundreds of teenage girls cheer their hearts out. Oh boy!

My BFF and I met as cheerleaders 15 years ago. Now we are back as coaches!

Now that I am on the Scrap it with a Song Design Team, I will be participating in two challenges a month. The first challenge for this month is the Fleetwood Mac classic, "Go Your Own Way."

I very rarely scrap pictures of myself but thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do so. I took out my SMASH book and got busy!

You can see the other entries and even give it a try yourself on the SIWAS blog. Thanks for reading!

I'm a Pop Gal!

So excited to announce that I'm now a Pop Gal over at Scrap it with a Song! If you haven't check it out yet, SIWAS is a challenge blog based on music. I was a guest designer last month and I am thrilled to be joining the design team for the next few months.

I'll be back tomorrow with my first layout for the latest Scrap it with a Song challenge. Now excuse me while I go do my happy dance.
