Scrapbook challenges...

As the boys have been on holiday from school, we've had lots of play dates, sleepovers, and lazy days at home.  In between getting snacks for hungry boys, vacuuming, and getting the laundry done I've been scrapping.  Oh, and taking plenty of pictures for new pages!  :)

I've recently found a site called Kraft It Up! thanks to my good friend Lynne.  How did I not know there was a place for kraft challenges???  Kraft is my go to paper for my layouts.  I actually have to make myself not use it sometimes.  Thankfully my mom is bringing me some more kraft paper when they visit this week!!!

This month's challenge is a recipe challenge.  How ironic that I chose to use pictures of my favorite cake for this challenge?  Spice Chiffon....mmmmmm....imagine a cinnamon, clove, nutmeg angel food cake.  Yum!  My mom would make this cake for my birthday and now I make it for my boys.  Well, who am I kidding....I make it for me!  :)

On to the challenge
1 piece of kraft cardstock or kraft patterned paper
2 photos smaller than 4x6
3 different alphas
4 different patterned paper
5 embellishments (love that little cat cookie cutter!)

Check!  You can bet that I'll be playing along with the challenges at Kraft It Up from now on.  So glad to have an "excuse" to use my kraft!  :)

Next up is the sketch challenge at Design Dollies.  These pictures catch two of my boys in a rare moment.  Ian and Aden can get along with each other but tend to get on each other's nerves quite often.  When I saw them pouring over a lego catalogue together, I knew I had to capture it.

Well, that's it for today.  I'm working on a layout as I write this.  Hope to get it done soon!  Oh, and finish up a project for my mom.  Only 3 days until they are here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
