Color Combos Galore 168!

Hey everyone!!  Spending time with my family over the Thanksgiving holiday here in the states, but I wanted to squeeze in time to post my layout for the Color Combos Galore challenge. 

Inspiration Board 168

Our designer challenge was to incorporate a bird.  I did this by using this beautiful paper with the bird in it.  I hope you will play along with us by checking out the Color Combos Galore blog.

What's Going On??

 I basically nabbed this from the Twisted Sketches Blog.  I wanted to make sure all of my special followers were aware of this awesome new product available to you.  I was so honored to have been asked to be a part of it as well!  Check it out!!..............

a special announcement

I am interrupting this blog for a quick post to let you know about a brand new iphone app that is now on sale :) It is a mobile SEARCHABLE collection of over 100 unique sketches for your iphone, ipad or itouch.

New iPhone App for Scrapbookers!

Just released by Kihaku Designs aka Anam Stubbington – Sketch Artist for My Mind’s Eye, Prima Marketing, and Twisted Sketches – Sketches2Scrapbook is a Scrapbooking Sketch application that will allow you to think creatively on the go with over 100 unique sketches and layouts to keep you inspired.
Most Scrapbookers are people with busy lives – always on the go and trying to fit scrapbooking in with everything else. When they do get to scrapbook, they bring their phone with them… to the crops, at the store, to their scrapbooking space.
Sketches2Scrapbook is a totally self-contained system where you can search the sketches for the one that suits the layout you want to make – you can search by style, by number of photos, by embellishments, even by the number of different papers you want to use.
Once you have your sketch selected, you can flip to see a sample layout made by some awesome Scrapbookers from around the world. Each of the beautiful layouts comes with a supply list of all the products they used to create the sample layout.
This App will help you to find the perfect sketch for your photos saving you both time and tote space – no need for magazines and books taking up valuable paper or embellishment space, no need to sit in front of your computer or print our online sketches to take with you. And when you are out at the store, you can use the app to pre-plan your layouts and even use the supplies list to remake the layouts with your own photos.
With 104 sketches, you have enough to make 2 layouts every week for a year plus the 12 free sketches for 1 extra layout each month (the Lite version comes built into the full version as extra sketches) – that’s a lot of inspiration especially with the sample layouts added as they are inspiring in their own right.
Sketches2Scrapbook is a way to give you more time and space to scrapbook by keeping all the sketches you need at your fingertips.
The full version is currently $4.99.
The free aka demo version is here.

My Mother in Law Just Might Kill Me.... but I had to do it!

This is for this week's Twisted Sketches #76 challenge.  Our twist is to use "history" in our layout - any way any how.  I thought about doing a serious layout, but I had this photo of my hubby's mom.  Not only is she sticking her tongue out at me, but she's got that goofy looking cover thing over her head so the wind doesn't mess up her hairdo.   Anyway, this quote with the word "history" in it just seem so appropriate for this photo.  Anam should have the sketch up at the site later on this evening.  I hope you'll play along with us!

Color Combos Galore 165 is Live!

Hope you will come play along with us over at Color Combos Galore!  I did my layout about London.  We lived there for a total of seven years.  I have such fond memories of our time there.  We made such wonderful friendships and had some pretty amazing experiences.  Our best experience was having our son, Hayden, while we were there.  Yep, I miss you London.
