DT call for Colorful Creations!

This is a layout I did for a DT application at Colorful Creations.
It was a wonderful sketch to use,
and the twist was to add Fall colors
to the layout.  This photo was perfect because
it didn't have much color,
so I could use any of the Fall colors I wanted.
If you'd like to apply for the design team,
click on my link above,
or on the Colorful Creations Blinki to the left and
it will direct you to their site.
The DT call is open until the 23rd!  Good Luck!

Family Photo's

While we were on the big island, we had some family photo's taken.
These are some pictures of just the three of us.  I have the photo of the
entire family coming on a new layout!!! I also entered this in the Studio Challenge
and I used the left column of the tic tac toe board, going down.  Which is hot pink,
 patterened paper and something sparkly!  The remember sticker in black a
t the bottom of the page is sparkly, you just cant see it in the photo!
 Hope everyone is having a great week!

Pearl Harbor

Not my typical layout as I usually only use one or two photo's 
on my scrapbook page, but all these photo's from Hawaii are
certainly make me step out of my box!  
For anyone planning a trip to the Big Island, a day trip to Pearl Harbor is a must!!!
It was an amazing and very moving day!!!
Here's the latest page I'm adding to our Hawiian album!

And this is the sketch I used:

Have a great weekend!  Am hoping to squeeze some more time in 
my craft room over the weekend, so hopefully I'll be able to post again
either Saturday or Sunday!!! Enjoy!

We hope you enjoy the grand re-opening of this sketch blog.

We have two great sketch designers on our team,

Our sketch for this Blog Hop, was designed by Bev.  And here it is:

And to give you some inspiration, here is my take on Bev's fabulous sketch:
(One of our many trips this summer was for our entire family to take 
a trip to Hawaii to celebrate my parents 50th.
I am currently working on an album from that trip.
And this was a great sketch to use becuase I was able to
put alot of photo's on one page. 
 And boy, do I have a lot of photo from this trip!
One of days on the Big Island was spent ATV'ing,
and we ended up at this swimming hole that was called, 
"The Never Ending Waterfall".  These are photo's of my daughter Sarah, 
and her cousins swimming in the hole!!

Now it's your turn!

Had the perfect photo to work with the sketch!  
And loved the layout I came up with!!!

So this is page 3 of our Hawaiian scrapbook!  
Am hoping to get more pages done in the next few days.
