Sharing Pages

I finally got to scrapbook! I was having a really hard time due to the fact that I cut my right pointer finger on a can while cooking a week ago. I’ve since decided that it’s much too dangerous for me to cook, so I should stop that and scrapbook instead. It’s getting better slowly. I’ve finally been able to play with paper and click my mouse to scrap digitally. Yay!

1: I’d Pick You


I tried something a little bit different this time around with matting the background of the layout off kilter. I'm not sure if I love it because you all know me and my straight lines, but I'm calling it done.

I was inspired by Sketch #53 from the Sketch Savvy blog. I used my Scraptastic Club Pyrus kit to create this page. I only added a couple of things from my stash. The banner is dimensional and the top photo is also popped high up off of the page to accommodate the texture of the torn burlap. This page was lots of fun to make. I miss Brandon being so little!

2: Just Horsing Around

Ever since Jessica started offering add ons for sale at Scraptastic Club I've been working on fussying my layouts up a bit so I can use up all of the goodies. I made the pink and red flower out of ribbon included with the kit. The only thing I added to my Scraptastic Club July "Sweet Summertime" kit to create this page was a few blingy pearls and two buttons.

This page is about Jordan being invited for a private one on one tour of "Clyde The Clydesdale's" barn. His owner spent hours with her letting her feed him and showing her all of his tricks. Jordan met Bonnie & Clyde through her horse therapy program where she rides to help her with the muscle tightness she experiences due to her cerebral palsy.

I almost forgot! Scraptastic Club is sponsoring this week at Sketch Inspiration and I did this page using one of their sketches. It'll be featured there as an example page this week.

3: Making Friends

I totally fell in love with last week's Template Tuesday by Sheri Horton. This is what I ended up with! I love these photos of Alexis meeting her horse for the first time. She’s now riding for therapy.
