ScrapFriends Color Challenge "Memory Lane"

Hi everyone!

ScrapFriends has their latest color challenge up...#19 to be exact! It definitely reminds me of fall, cooler weather, warm soup...yum!

My take on the had more to do with warm weather and adventure but that's what I love about the versatility of color challenges :)

This is different from my usual style and I didn't really plan it this way but isn't that just how some pages go? I have always wanted to use a jar and try a negative cutout as a title so I'm happy for that :)

We took a trip to Korea a few years back and that's my mom having fun, pretending to ride a bike. She was reminiscing about the Korea she left back in the 1970's.

The Sodalicious paper was really just perfect for this. And thank you Yvonne Yam for the just right sequins!

Cut this out with my Silhouette...I've had this shape for so long, so glad to use it!
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!!

Catching Up With UmWowStudio

Hi everyone!

My vacation already seems AGES ago.... *sigh*
Now is that anyway to start a post? No, so I'll steer us towards something other than my whinging.

I'm sharing two pages today, both which I made for UmWowStudio and both of which I am late posting (!)

The first is my page with UWS and 7Dots Studio. I always have fun working with my UWS products and of course getting to use the Messy Head and Love is in the Air papers was awesome!

One of the most amazing and beautiful places we visited during our trip to Iceland was Jokulsarlon,
a glacial lagoon. Walking down the beach among the pieces of glacial ice will always be a striking memory.

I love to use big arrows. Great embellies to use for bringing focus to your photos.

My next page is for this month's Throwback Thursday hop with UWS and Authentique. We're using the oldies but definitely goodies to make our pages. I worked with the Joyous collection from Authentique which is one of their Christmas lines. The papers are beautiful but I didn't feel exactly ready to scrap the holidays yet so I decided to use it for a completely, non-holiday themed page.

One of the highlights of our trip to Vietnam was eating! We enjoyed roaming around,
 seeing where the crowd
were and sitting down on little stools (right on the sidewalk) to eat "street food".

OK, hope everyone has a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

ScrapFriends Sketch Challenge #19 and Some Catching Up!

Hello everyone!

I'm back from vacation and it was WONDERFUL! Me and the hubby celebrated our 10 year anniversary by going on a trip to Cambodia and Vietnam withOUT the kiddos (oh thank you, oh thank you, oh thank you mom for watching them!!). I'll share some photos before parting adieu but on to other fun things as well!

ScrapFriends has another fabulous sketch challenge up and I hope to encourage you to play along!

I stayed pretty close to the sketch because it was such an awesome one and had one of my favorite trends on it....feathers!

It is a wordless ode to some of my favorite scrapbook things and as I wanted to make those things standout, I kept the background neutral.

Here's some close ups.....

And as promised, here are a few photos from our trip...

Angkor Wat at sunrise....need I say more?

New travel hats :)

Eating street food...yum yum!
