… life would suck

Where the heck did January go?! I am excited to say that I completed 21 projects this month!  I think that is a record for sure!!!!!! I have two layouts for you here.

This week at Scrap It With A Song our song is “My Life Would Suck Without You”.  I love this song, probably why I picked it :)  For this layout I used the Scrappiest 100th Sketch for inspiration


As you can see I got a little crazy with the flowers.  The black embellishment is this glittered snowflake that I bought at target.  I had been trying to find a way to use it without if looking like a snowflake.  I am thinking mission accomplished!!

For my second project, I actually hit a couple different challenges! I used the Scrappiest 101 Sketch and this picture prompt “Merry Go Round of Colour” at Creative Prompts for You.  In addition to that, Paper Variety had a quote about friendship and that pushed my theme, a picture of me with my gal pals. If that wasn’t enough, Scrap Our Stash had a challenge of NEW and as I was going through my stamps, I remember I had bought the paper lantern stamp and had not used it yet.  I think it added a nice, NEW touch. 

girlfriends My favorite part of this layout is the dolie.  I used glimmer mist to give it the rainbow affect ad then to add a bit more, if you look closely I have added brads in the dolie to make the colors!

Happy Monday!!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!!!

… Using up my Halloween supplies

I have done it! I used up all the halloween papers that I had stocked up on a few months ago.  These layouts are again of my godson Beau.  For his birthday, I told my best friend Heather I would do his first year album.  Her favorite holiday is halloween so I really tried to play up the halloween!! 

Scrap Jacked has an awesome challenge with amazing layouts this month.  I had not planned to scrap jack all of them but after I had done 4, I made it a goal to try to do a version of them all.  I have to say it has been so much fun!!!!

Here is my jack of Mel!  I left the journal block empty so that Heather can fill it out.  I have kinda become addicted to making the paper flowers.  It took me a while to figure it out but now that I have I want to put them on every layout. LOL


Below is my take on Sarah’s layout.  I tried to emulate the look of the frame with the thick black border. Instead of flowers and vines, I did the stitching like on frankensteins head. 


Last but not least is my jack of Vicki.  I liked the prominent circle and had this cute title die cut that fit it perfectly.  I also wanted to change up the color a little and add some purple.  All my other halloween layouts were just the green, orange, and black.  

Treat Now my count is up to 19 layouts this month!!! Thanks Scrap Jacked for all the inspiration.  I can’t wait to see what you all come up with next month.  ALSO thanks for all the great comments and love shared my way!!!!!

Scary Monster!!

I am so excited to be using up some of my Halloween papers.  My besties favorite holiday is halloween so I wanted to really play up the halloween on these adorable pics of her little man.  He really is scary cute!!! For both of these layouts I am using inspiration from ScrapJack January Challenge.  For these two I am jacking from Lisa and Christine.  With Lisa’s lo, I decided to go with a rectangle to change it up a bit.

little monster

With Christine’s instead of the clouds and bottom big scallops, I hand cut ghosts!  I think they turned out pretty cute. Also this is the first time I have used a banner on a layout.  They are the big thing right now but I just haven’t found a way to use one yet.  These were square stickers that I cut into triangles. 

scary cute

Just cause I am so impressed with myself, I thought I would share.  I have completed 16 layouts just this month.  That has to be a record for me!!! At this rate I might actually get caught up!!!!!

Scrapjacking Julie!!!

I got another layout for ScrapJack January Challenge and this time I am scrapjacking Julie!!! I loved her layout and was totally inspired by the monochromatic element.  I have been wanting to do an all pink layout (of course with a little bit of black).  This one was a lot of fun to make.

… Mandy has been Scrapjacked

I scrapjacked Mandy for the ScrapJack January Challenge! I loved her use of five pictures but I didn’t have five to use so I tried to make an illusion of five pics with the five pieces of patterned paper!  For those of you that don’t know… the GRIZ are the grizzles from University of Montana! I am a Griz through and through and so is my bestie and her guys!!

Griz Go GRIZ!!!!!!!

…. Smile 4-Ever

I am taking a stab at the January Sketch Challenge.  Here is the sketch:


Of course in true Faye fashion, I had to flip the sketch.  The background paper is American Crafts and I have had it for like forever.  It always seemed like a very random color scheme but I was trying to challenge myself to do something with it.  I think it turned out pretty good!!!

smile (2) 

I think the quote is one of my new faves!!!

… Brown Eyed Girl

I like to think I am really good with music lyrics.  In fact, people are usually surprised how many songs I can remember the words to.  This is one of those songs that although I sing it and know most of the words, I always manage to mess up part of it.  The line in the song is “Laughing and a running” and for some reasons (probably because the line before has to do with playing), I always sing “laughing and a playing”.  This week I decided to use my special lyrics to this song. Check out the challenge at Scrap It With A Song

This is also my entry for the pagerize challenge at Scrap Our Stash .Playing

Until next time!!!

… Yummy

This little guy is too cute.  I can not believe he will be one in less than a month.  It is crazy!!!  For this layout I was inspired by the Sketchy Thursday weekly sketch as well as the challenge of using strips on the page by ScrapFIT.  These two were the perfect marriage to make this layout hope you like

… Born to fly

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! 

Last year on this day, I was in LA out in the rain protesting NBC pushing Conan out of his 11:35 time slot.  Now Coco is back on the air and I am back to laughing regularly between the hours of 11pm and 12am.  Are there any other Conan fans out there in the scrapbooking world?

This week at Scrap It With A Song, we are using inspiration from Sara Evan’s song Born to Fly.  This is one of my faves. It was hard to narrow down what lyric I was gonna go with but when I saw this picture of my bf and her guys I knew that the “I love my folks” line was perfect! Although it is my design team layout for Scrap It With A Song, I was able to incorporate the Guest Designer Challenge from Sketchy Thursdays.  Here is the sketch for this challenge:

imageAnd here is what I did with it: love my folks 

Hope you all have a happy Monday!! Take care!
