This Week's Happenings

This layout was done for a sketch challenge at I really like how the flowers turned out. This is Devon in her Easter dress.

This layout was done for a challenge. I used a Transparent Touches and Tags kit.

I love how this turned out! It's my oldest dd Devon and I used a Transparent Touches and Tags kit.

This layout was done for a sketch challenge at Addicted Scrappers. I LOVE this MM paper!

Here is a layout I did for the Scrapdango guest design team call. I am happy to announce I will be guest designing with them for the month of May! This is Devon and her cousin Kaylee. They are only 5 months apart, so they have lots of fun when they are together.

Here's a layout I did using my first Addicted Scrappers kit! I just couldn't resist this Pink Paislee paper.

This weekend I will be getting some scrapping done! Scrapdango is having a spring crop with lots of games, challenges and prizes! On Sunday I am going to a crop with my friends Jen and Kim. I haven't done this in awhile, so it should be fun!

Layout Contest!!!

First of all, I finally got the blog finished for the scrapbook retreat house! Woo hoo! Here's the link:
The Hamburg Hideaway Scrapbook Retreat House

Please stop by to visit!

I am also holding a layout contest. I bought several (like all they had left in stock) of those 12 x 12 scrapbook frames. I am going to be decorating the retreat house with these frames and need some AWESOME layouts! SO, that's where you all come in...

1. Layouts must be 12 x 12 in size.

2. Submit as many layouts as you would like, by emailing them to me at

3. Choose one of these words and base your layout on it:
*OR any other inspirational word you come up with!

4. There can be photos on these pages, but there doesn't have to be.

5. Please make sure your name appears somewhere on the front of the layout, along with a blog address if you choose for others to check you out.

6. I will choose the winning layouts, at least 12, and those people will receive a NICE scrappy RAK from me (a kit!). The winning layouts must be mailed to me to hang in the retreat house!!! So make sure you are willing to part with it! These will serve as inspiration for those attending the house, and expose them to your work.

7. The due date for layouts to be emailed to me will be May 30th. Winners will be posted here on my blog by June 7th. I will contact you also!

Thanks and good luck!

Coordinates Collections Guest Design Team Projects

Here are two of the projects I did as a guest designer. I can't post the other because it's a gift someone might see.
