Christmas Morning...2011

I found an awesome sketch at My Scraps and More Sketches blog. Sketch #25.

It is so different than my usual style, so I had to participate!

Now, I know these are not the traditional colors for Christmas, but I love these pics! This is Kylee's 2nd Christmas and the 1st Christmas that she actually cared enough to rip open gifts! It is hard to tell in the pic because of lighting and what-not but the background paper actually matches the color of her jammies in the pic. It is hard to snap a pic in the perfect lighting, etc. Hop over to My Scraps & More Sketches and play!

and here is my layout:

I just love scrapping old pictures of my kids. It takes me back to the days when they were this little, and Kylee barely had hair!

The Paper Bakery Sketch Challenge

A month or so ago, I discovered this amazing kit club called The Paper Bakery and instantly subscribed to their scrapbook kits. They are WORTH IT! Anyway, they started a sketch challenge on their blog and I believe this is the first one! My absolute fave sketch designer designed the first sketch, so I of course jumped right on board!

Here is the sketch by the lovely Juliana Michaels..

And here is my layout that follows this sketch quite closely.

The picture of the layout is a bit crooked because I have not figured out how to take an awesome pic of my page! That is a job in itself! 

If you want to play along, hop over to The Paper Bakery blog and check it out!

This week's challenge is a Game Challenge! And Tiffany chose an awesome game to use for inspiration!

I absolutely LOVE this game! I even play it on Facebook! I remember going to bingo nights with my family and trying to win money. Oh the memories! 

I chose to use a little mini Bingo card on my page. This is one of my fave pics of my son learning to skateboard. I believe the Bingo card is from Echo Park (I fussy cut from a page) and the other page reminded me of the bingo numbers that light up when you play bingo online or on the bingo nights! 

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop by Child's Play Challenges and play along!!
