Color Challenge at RAH

Hi Everyone,
Right at Home Scrapbooking is having a color challenge this month using some of my favorite colors! Check out our inspiration:
I LOVE blue, green and brown together! Here's my take on the challenge, a very funny picture of my fluffy kitty Rosie reaching out to "bap" the camera.

As soon as I saw the challenge, I immediately though of the new Style Essentials Collections from Echo Park. They're so versatile, and you can use both sides of each paper, same colors, different patterns.
I created some twine hearts using some Caribbean, Honeydew and Cappuccino twine from The Twinery. And of course... my Whimsy kitty and buttons...LOVE that kitty!

For the title, I cut some letters using my Cricut and combined them with some little alphas from the EP Dots and Stripes Candy Shoppe line. I was very happy with the results! I'll be back next week with a fun Valentine's treat holder for Right at Home and also the reveal of sketch 118 from Let's Capture These Sketches!

1st Reveal at Let's Capture These Sketches

So excited, it my first reveal at Let's Capture These Sketches. We had a great sketch to work with this week designed by Natalie Roy, take a peek:

And here's my version...

These pictures are actually from Christmas. We were trying to get a picture of all the grandchildren to send to Nana down in Florida. Of course, my husband had to get into the action with his version of the "Tebow"... well at least he got them all smiling.

I used Echo Park's Yours Truly, perfect for Valentine's and love-themed layouts. The hearts along the border are painted.

And of course... some Charcoal Twine from The Twinery and a Whimsy button to top it all off! I'll be back next week with some more layouts... finally getting "back in the groove" after some time off! Make sure to stop by Let's Capture These Sketches to see the awesome layouts created by the other members of the team!

A Two-Pager

Wow, two posts in two days, I'm on a roll! Just thought I'd share a two page layout I did for the DT over at Right at Home Scrapbooking. Lisa gave me a great PageMaps Sketch and some Echo Park Happy Days to work with. I don't do a ton of 2 pagers, and was worried I wouldn't have enough pics, but I found some and they worked perfectly with the EP goodies.
These pictures are from the Taylor Swift Concert last June at Gillette Stadium. The girls had a great time tailgating, and the concert was awesome. She really puts on a great show! I was particularly impressed by how she kept right on going in the middle of a torrential downpour!

The EP Happy Days papers coordinated great with my theme, lots of music inspired embellies.

I even added one of my own, creating a music stanza and a G-Clef with some Twinery twine (of course!!)
I'll be back soon with some more layouts, including my first reveal for Let's Capture These Sketches.
