I played around a bit with the Collecting Moments collection from Fancy Pants Designs and made a few cards.
I took one of the decorative clothespins apart and used it for the body of the butterfly.
I'm loving the new large tags that come in the collections! They are so great for layering.
Thanks for stopping by!

The new sketch challenge is up at My Creative Sketches and this month is a little bit different!
We get to play with a double page layout.
When I first started scrapbooking I made double page layouts all the time, but I am certainly a single page layout type of girl now so this was quite a challenge for me.
I used the Collecting Moments collection and a little bit of the Memories Captured collection from Fancy Pants Designs.
Double the layout...Double the chance to WIN!
Checkout the two prizes up for grabs this month...
You can find all the details about this months challenge over at the My Creative Sketches Blog.
I hope you'll join us and play along.

I don't know if I've mentioned my family's big news on my blog yet so I guess now is the time!
We are expecting a new baby!
I only have 8 weeks to go now so the excitement is definitely growing :)
Today I'm sharing a layout I made of the photos I posted on FB to share our news with our extended family and friends! I got our son a Big Brother t-shirt. It was kind of funny because the words 'big brother' are not very big on the shirt and some people didn't actually 'get it'. I guess I was a big vague.
I just got my new box of goodies from Fancy Pants Designs so this was my first chance to play with the Collecting Moments collection. I just love this collection as well as the other two that I got to play with (Merry Little Christmas and Happy Go Lucky) I just know I'm going to use these ALL UP!
Thanks for stopping by today!

It's sketch challenge time again over at My Creative Sketches!
I made a fun layout to share with you today using some older pictures of my little guy.
Right now we are fully in the frustrating saga of potty training so it was nice to look back on some pics of when things were so much simpler and easier.
Here is the sketch I based my layout on. You can play along and create your own sketch based on this layout for your chance to win an amazing prize!!! But more on that at the end of this post...
You can see I altered the sketch a bit to suit my layout. I added more photos and didn't use the large circles in the sketch, but I did create two focal points in the bottom left and top right of the page just like the sketch shows. That is why I love to use sketches, your end product doesn't have to look like the sketch, the sketch is simply to inspire you and give you a direction :)
Here's a few close ups...
I used the Boy Crazy collection from My Minds Eye. It worked perfectly for this layout.
So here's what you're playing for!!!
Just create a layout based on our September sketch, link it up HERE and you are entered for a chance to be featured on the MCS blog or to win this fabulous prize!!!!
I can't wait to see what you come up with :)
Have a great day
