The Great Outdoors

I was invited to the RYS Spending Freeze Facebook event hosted by Sara Scraps and Khristina Sorge.  I really needed this event.  Lately I've spent so much time shopping and buying and checking over and organizing and putting away......that it hasn't left me any time to actually use the products.  This event has been a great reminder to put the breaks on all that spending and use up some of what I already have instead of just hoarding it.  Because we all know just how fast scrapbooking supplies can pile up and get out of hand.

Challenge #1 is a sketch challenge.  For this layout I used a collection from 2016 by Echo Park called Happy Camper.

Live, Love and Laugh

Each month The Secret Not Secret Kit Club has an online crop for its members.  This month for our first challenge we had to use a beautiful quilt as inspiration for a layout.  I love the colors in the quilt and it immediately made me think of the Fancy Pants True Friend collection.  I decided to also play along with Day 6 of 30 Days of Sketches on YouTube.  Here is the layout I created

My first Secret Not Secret Kit Club kit

I'm sure by now you've heard the buzz about the Secret Not Secret Kit Club.  If not you can find more info here.  It's a kit club that designs each kit specifically for you.  Each subscriber get their own unique kit designed with their taste, needs and budget in mind.  I asked for a boy themed kit and love the kit that Khristina created.  Here is my kit.

And here are some close ups.

Cake Face

I used Fancy Pants "Family & Co." to create a layout for the Whip It Up challenge on The ScrapRoom Group Facebook page.  For the challenge we had to use puffy stickers.  I used a total of four puffy stickers (3 hearts and a banner) for this layout.  This layout was also inspired/scraplifted from a layout by Niki on the Hey Little Magpie blog.
