New challenge for you...

There's a new challenge at Scrapbook Challenges hosted by yours truly. ;)

My challenge for this month is an easy one. I have been a little busy with a sick little girl over here so I had to make a "quick" layout. I put "quick" in quotations because I am the slowest scrapper ever! In the time it takes me to pick out cardstock most people are done with their layouts!

To speed things up a bit I chose to use only three things on my layout- Patterned Paper, Cardstock and Letter stickers. I call this my "Only Three" layout because you can only use those three things on your layout (and tools do not count). Here is my example:

Upload your finished layouts to the Scrapbook Challenges gallery for you chance to win this month's prize hosted by...... Juju Bee's Scrapbook Corner. You can win one of their awesome kits!

New sketch...

There's a new sketch posted at scrapbook challenges and it is a beauty! I love this sketch.

I didn't get a chance to play along this week because Frances was sick, but this is definitely on my to do list for the weekend. I took her back to the doctor today and she has RSV, a respiratory infection. Luckily it's not too bad. She just needs lots of fluids, rest, and snuggles from mommy. :)

**February 14th**

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Well little Frances is still not feeling herself so we had a very low key V-day celebration. We went out for a late lunch/ early dinner at this little brewery by our house. The name of the place is in German and I can't even begin to spell it. But they have the best garlic fries! MMmmmm mmm!!! Usually Frances loves to go out to eat. She sits in her little high chair watching everyone and trying to feed her puppy fishy crackers. Her puppy is this little plastic fisher-price dog (here's a picture of him).

It came in the little people set we got her for Christmas. Well "puppy" now goes every where we go and Frances likes to feed him crackers. It is so cute. Today though she sat in her high chair for about a half hour then wanted to be held. I guess we are lucky if that is her version of not behaving in a restaraunt. So we finished eating and then our big V-day outing of the day was to go to the Bass Pro Shop across the street. We must be getting old if we consider that an outing! There is a big fish tank in the store and lots of "stuffed" animals. It is a hunting store so they are those kind of stuffed animals. There are geese, ducks, bears, deer, raccoons, beavers, you name it. Now that Frances knows all her animals it is really fun when she sees them. She could point them all out and doesn't know the difference between the zoo and a store yet. Then she was tired out so we went through the Starbucks drive through for a hot chocolate and then came home. Along with having a cold I stuck my finger in her mouth yesterday and she is getting all her back teeth. That can't be fun! Poor little girl. I feel so bad for her.

Before we left we managed to get a few non-cranky pictures of her in this cute little heart t-shirt.

That little pink hedge hog is "Smitten". I bought him for Frances for V-day. We call him Smitty for short. Thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone had a great day. - Sarah

SWAK Crop!!

Join us at Simply Obsessed for the SWAK crop going on now! There are challenges, games, chatting and prizes. The boards are hopping right now too!

My challenge is to incorporate a letter somewhere on a layout. Valentine's Day is all about love letters right? Every Valentine's Day my husband writes me a letter and I want to put it on this layout. I used this sketch from Scrapbook Challenges. The heart was perfect to make a pocket for my letter.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you join us at the crop! - Sarah

Hello February!!!!

Well just a few days I was bummed because I wasn't chosen for two DT's that I applied for, but then the very next day I found out that I was chosen as one of the top 25 finalists for the My Scrapbook Nook DT!

I am so super excited I made it as one of the finalists! The kits there are amazing and you should see the current design team - WOW! The final team will be announced Sunday so keep your fingers crossed for me :)

But that's not it. The following day I found out I was chosen as a guest designer for Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker!

And I will be working with one of her new releases that just debuted at CHA winter. Here is a little peek-
