Twisted Sketches #86 is Up!

Sadly to say, this is my last sketch with Twisted Sketches.  I have been with them since the beginning, and it has been loads of fun.  I wish all those ladies the best.  I'll bet the new team is awesome! 

Our "twist" this week over at Twisted Sketches is "fresh"- any how any way!  I chose to do a layout about fresh cut grass.  I just love that smell - especially in the spring when you've been cooped up all winter.  Ahh, I can imagine it now.

Hope you play along with us!

Color Combos Galore 175 is Live

Well, seeing that my puppy chewed my power cord to my laptop I am using our MAC.  My hubby never made it where I could cut and paste, or at least I can't figure it out.  Needless to say I can't copy the inspiration board for you.  You'll just have to swing on over to Color Combos Galore and check it out yourself.  Sorry about that!  However, I can show you my layout.  Our challenge this week is "comfort".  I took my idea from our inspiration photo.  I took a photo of my cup of green tea.  I'll often have that in the morning over coffee when I am cold.  Hope you play along with us!

Twisted Sketches #84 is Up!

Hey all you Twisted Sketches followers!  The sketch is up over at the site.  Come play along!  The twist this week is "winter" any how, any way!  My layout is of my old house in Massachusetts, where we had snow, snow, snow and the more snow.  However, it rather cold here in Houston, and now that I have lived in and become acclimated to the weather - I have to say I have become a big wimp.  I am really really dreading taking the puppy out in the morning!  This is one time her "doing her business" inside almost sounds like a good thing, lol!

If you live where it is cold, I hope you are freezing your butt off!  I'd hate to be doing this alone!  If you live ins say "Australia", I'm seriously envious of you right now!   I have to say though, I do miss the snow and the snow pictures!

Last year I was fortunate enough to be a part of this awesome iphone App Sketches2Scrapbook.   In fact, if you follow Scrapbook Update (a site that keeps up with the lastest in scrapbooking news), they just recently had an article on the site "iphone as a Traditional Srapbooker's Tool" by May Flaum.  It is amazing how far technology is taking us.  We just purchased an ipad, and my almost 7 year-old as completely taken it over.  Anyway, how cool is it to be able to just click on an app on your iphone "anywhere" you are and have sketches right there at your fingertips?

I want to share with you the two layouts that I did using sketches from Sketches2Scrapbook.  You'll have to download the app on you iphone to see the sketches that were my inspiration.  I promise you will not be disappointed if you do!
