Skate park fun

On Sunday when I met my brother and sister in law to drop off my beautiful niece Alisha we went early enough so the boys could play at the skate park a little while. They are not skateboarders but they like to try and they have so much fun. I took a few shots and thought I would share!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!

Third challenge

So week three's challenge is up and I completed my layout!!!! I really like how this one turned out

This week's lesson is English, we will be looking at some creative writing, different alphabets and maybe a little researching.
Get out your reading books, collect your fonts and let's get started.
Please make sure your pencil is sharpened and your lines are ruled nicely

Your required elements:
At least 2 different fonts in your title
One of these forms of writing seen on your page (Book paper, patterned paper with writing on it, script paper or stamps)
Your journaling needs to be either a 'Once upon a time' story or a letter to the person scrapped.
It can be hidden journaling, but please include a photo of it.

For Extra Credit:
Include a quote on your page
Use lined paper

Here is my version!

Have a great day!

Next challenge

The next challenge was posted at Dango...this week it was science class!

Ladies this week is Science class. I hope you have all your test tubes ready. This is a fun class and I hope you enjoy it.

When you think about science class the first thing most people think about is disecting a frog *so you need to use a picture of an animal.

Since we are in science class we need to create an experiment to work on
* you need to use a technique on your layout. You can decide what the technique is but it should be a little more difficult than just distressing. Create a flower, etc. when you upload your project please make sure you specify what technique you used.

While working on your experiment there was an accident and the test tubes bubbled over on your project *you need to use mist or paint on your layout.

extra credit - use an xacto knife or fussy cut something on your layout.
Sewing - machine or hand stitching no rubons.
Journaling spot - to jot down your experiment results.

so here is what I came up with

Thanks for stopping by!

Meet Rebel...

he is our new puppy. We were going to wait till we came back from vacation in February but my brother & sil (thank you Rob & Brenda) really really wanted to buy our boys a dog. so here he is.

We have had him for a little over a week and he is precious! He is 10 week old purebred Doberman (we owned one before) and he is really really smart. He already knows sit, down and come (when he wants to) but he is a chewer...he eats everything, lego, rocks, dirt, grass...all of it goes in the mouth.

Round # 2

So round two is up over at Treasured scrapbooking.....

*Use the TITLE OF A BOOK as your layout's title

*Use the phrase, "The things I've learned about" as part of your journaling. You can paraphrase slightly, but it must be very close to that phrase. Please include a typed version of your journaling in the description of your page.

*Use lined paper or ledger paper on your layout. Feel free to make your own if you don't already have some.

*Use at least three layers of paper somewhere on your layout, it can be cardstock or patterned paper, as long as there are three layers.

*Use something school/learning related on your page. That could be a definition from the dictionary, a page from a book, school related papers, a map, a math problem, ANYTHING along those lines.

so here is what I came up with!

Well thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
