Sketches in Thyme Smash Up

What fun it was to create this Smash Up for Sketches in Thyme.  I took the circle (x2) from Brenda's sketch, the banner and 7x5 (turned sideways) from Shawn's sketch and combined these elements with pieces from Bev's. ( these are some new Maja Designs papers I just got in the mail).

 The sketches I combined to create this layout are on the Sketches in Thyme blog along with amazing creations by my fellow Mavens.  Be sure to check them out HERE.  As always, thanks for looking!

Scrap the Boys challenge blog

I've recently become acquainted with a challenge blog dedicated to scrapping boys (and/or men folk) and there is also a sister site for scrapping girls.  Now with my 2 grand boys and their sister, these challenges will be of great help to me in getting more layouts done.

The challenge at Scrap the Boys was Chow Down.  About the only pics I have of the males in the family eating are the boys with ice cream and I've scrapped most of those.  So I looked a bit to the past and found this pic of my favorite, and only, son in law, Chris.

This was one of the first Thanksgivings after he and Kristen moved to Florida and his FIRST ever turkey.

Thanks, Scrap the Boys for the motivation!
