Snow Day Scrapping

Today was our fourth snow day this week!  We will go back to school tomorrow...not sure I can handle just working a Friday, hehehe!!!

I did try to get some scrapping done over the days off.  I had some mojo issues, but I barreled through them!  I must tip my hat to my friend, Shelly, who completed 35 pages!  That is a record for her!!!!  Unfortunately I wasn't that successful, but I did finish my son's school album through the end of 4th grade.  Which is great considering he's in 5th grade now!

Once again, I was inspired by a sketch.  I tell ya, I must have a challenge or sketch to get me moving.  Well, Shelly challenged me to do 5 pages today, and I came close.  I did four!

This layout came from this week's challenge at Sketchy Thursdays.  What a neat site!  Be sure to go check them out HERE.

good day son shine
If you know me, you know that I simply cannot mix multiple patterns on a layout.  Well, I did it here, once again, because I was challenged to.  It just pains me to mix patterns.  I don't know why, but it does.  My friend Christie aka Chief Chick of Scrapbook Chicks challenged me to make a layout with two different patterns.  So, I did, and I used three different patterns, that's right, count 'em!!!  I decided to go back to my son's baby album and do some catching up so that is why I scrapped these baby pictures.

Normally, I don't know or care who my paper is from, but this time I paid attention!
Background is Bazzill Swiss Dots, Large PP is Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday, PP strip is Basic Grey Sublime (I think), Little birds pp is Cosmo also.  The letters are Thickers and the little sticker is American Crafts.

Don't forget to play along with challenge #4 to win the cool calendar prize!!
