February Scraptastic Club Challenges 1, 2, & 3

Hello my friends! I have finally found time to participate in the Scraptastic Club challenges this month! I am so excited to finally have my scrappin’ groove back Smile

So the first challenge is “to do some fussy cutting of your own to make your own die cuts for your layout, or card”.IMG_1030
  And here is my LO. I Love the fact that Jon and his parents are having just as much fun as the boys….and that I got a picture of Grandma swingingSmile Love you Mom! (forgive me for this?? please!!)
I “fussy cut” the banner for “outside” to sit on. Nothing too fancy but I think it looks cute on the page.

The second challenge “is to use the title from a favorite childrens book as yourIMG_1022 title.” We have so many favorite books that I couldn’t decide which one to use. So I picked out 5 books, then went through my pics…and I found the perfect match!

I love the relationships that my parents have with all of their Grandchildren. Any time we go to visit…no matter what the reason or for how long…I always come back with a TON of pics Smile And I just couldn’t resist taking the pic of my niece Jordyn’s pants… too cute!!

And the third challenge was a sketch challenge. Now this one had me stumped…and I am still not overly excited about the way that my LO came out BUT this challenge did “challenge” me to step out of my comfort zone…which is the point! I really do like the sketch and I have seen wonderful LO’s using hexagons, it is just one of those shapes that I am not comfy using. Guess that means I need to use it more!! HL_Sketch_Template_11
A gorgeous sketch…. and my attempt…IMG_1024
So that is all I have for you for now…HAHA Open-mouthed smile
Enjoy the moments my friends,


  1. I think your page turned out wonderfully! Thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge at Scraptastic!

  2. Thank you Heather! I have actually used the sketch on a couple more LO's :) The Hexagons are growing on me...and your sketch is very inspirational!
