Inspiration Friday - Sketches

This week Joy and I are taking our inspiration from a sketch. I don't usually work with sketches so this was a little out of the comfort zone for me but I actually found that it made the process a lot quicker and because of my limited time these days I might need to use them more. We used this fun sketch from Scrapfriends.com I found online.


I wanted to use this photo from the past month from my son's first competition, they did amazing and two routines made it to the top 10 overall for the competition which is awesome.



I have heard the term "Squad Goals" quite a bit on-line and thought it would be the perfect title for this layout. I used the Finders Keepers collection from Amy Tangerine I love the colors.


I followed the sketch pretty much bank on and added some black ink and rub ons.


I had a lot of fun making this layout, you can see the video here...



And don't forget to check out how Joy was inspired by this layout on her channel.

Midori Catch Up

I posted a quick video on my channel today - a quick catch up on my Midori's. In my previous post I showed the completed Wizard of Oz Midori and I am almost done the Midori for my son's Into the Woods show. I am using a Midori from Love Neen on Etsy and I added a charm with my Epiphany Crafts Round Tool. I really love the black plus sign Midori I should have gotten two!


I did the same process with this book but it ended up only being one book as it was less shows and rehearsals than Wizard of Oz was. Linden auditioned in September 2015 and was his usual goofy self.


I won't go through too much detail with the photos or this post will be long! The rehearslas were once a week and were local so no long driving which was nice.


I volunteered to plan the Cast Party at the end of the show which was so much fun.


After Wizard of Oz ended it was time to focus on Into the Woods and after many rehearsals we finally got to tech week at Metro Theatre in Vancouver. It was a super cool location.

Tony did an amazing job with the sets, the trees moved around the stage - so cool!


I also offered to do the cast wall and made big trees out of black paper and added the photos to it.

Watching rehearsals was so much fun, I snuck as many photos as I could.


Tony was the only adult in the cast he played the wolf and was amazing.


When I saw Linden in his Rapunzel Prince costume I loved it - purple velour.


More photos from rehearsals.


Finally it was show time, Linden was in 4 shows total over three days and nailed it every time.



Getting in some studying in between shows.


More photos from the show.


The kids had a blast at the cast party.


Now it's all over another bitter-sweet moment for me.

Wizard of Oz Midori

I finally got the Wizard of Oz Midori for my son finished. There is nothing quite like knowing a project is complete. I think that's why I have always loved mini albums and now Midori's they are little treasure troves of pretty paper, cute embellishments, fun pictures and life!


I love this picture on the little charm I made, how cute are those Munchkins.


The cast had a Cabaret to celebrate how well the show was going. It was a blast.


Sneaking backstage to take photos of his costume rack.


They had a performance on New Years Eve so Linden and I got the kids noise makers, party hats and sparkling apple cider.  The last show was so bitter-sweet. 


A wind up cast party and the cutest gift from the Director Barb.


Look at all this goodness, I love the washi tape on the edges!


Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Sun N Fun

I finally got another layout done for my Friday Inspiration video with Joy. We were using Jill Sprott as our inspiration. I can't believe what I had to go through to get this video done this month, seriouslt frustrating. At least I got it done.


This layout is a photo from Huntingdon Beach California with my son Linden. He still likes getting his photo taken so I take advantage when I can. We went for Lunch at Ruby's on the pier. It was a fun day at the beach.


Here is the video to go along with the layout - sorry for the bad quality!
