Scarlet Lime Frugal Kit Layouts!

You have to love a kit that is this gorgeous but still under $20. I have been a fan of Scarlet Lime for OH, SO LONG...and I always love playing with them. This months Frugal Fab kit is delish! These pictures are of my son and niece taking turns giving each other piggy back rides. Ah, to be a kid again.

I love all the goodies in this kit, makes for some great details.

Fab colors too!

This is my oldest niece, she love her horse Alcapony! They do some amazing riding and jumping together.

A few more details...

I love these journaling stickers. It was a great way to change up my typical journaling.

Thanks so much for stopping by...I guarantee you will love Novembers kit just as much as this months!

Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Projects!

The My Friend Birdie line is so dang cute! I went perfectly with these pictures of my nephew playing his first season of t-ball! I used a circle theme to enhance the ball idea...the added touch of the Burlap Buttons are just the right embellishment.

A few details...

I also decided to alter this cool tray by Traditions Studio using the Something for Everyone line. This will make a great Christmas gift, don't you think?

I love the black with these great papers, they just pop! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Fall Tags using the Chip Art Tool and a layout!

Heidi challenged the design team to make a fall and Halloween Chip Art tag set. As usual a good challenge always gets my juices flowing...pulling out my paint, stamps, and ink and getting my hand dirty! I always send a treat in for the kids teachers on Halloween and I think these will be perfect tied to a little bag of oatmeal raisin cookies.

I love the rich, earthy colors of fall. Look how great the GCD Chip Art Tool leaf imprints look on this background.

I'm going to admit one of my "dirty little scrapping secrets"...yes, it is true I can be an embellishment and paper hoarder, lol! I know I am not the only one...step up and admit it. We have all bought fab products, thinking they are just so cute and we are going to save them for just the perfect layout or card...a year later...they are still in our stash. Today I decided to dig into my stash and create.

For this layout I dug into GCD papers from several collections, as well as brads, transparencies, chipboard stickers, and even a border. Check them all out here.

I also pulled out a punch I had never used and it may now be my new favorite. I added a few other odds and ends and a great Etsy find from my supplies and went to town layering. The papers in my layout are simply layered. To create some depth and interest I began plopping down embellishments one on top of the other until I couldn't layer anymore.

It feels pretty good to have used so many supplies. Now I won't feel so bad the next time I head to the LSS and pick up that "must have item". Time to shop! Now it is your turn...dig into your stash and create some fun tags or a layout. You won't regret it...a little creative time is good for the soul! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Now on to winners of a different is soccer season in my house. Every weekend we are traveling from field to field with each of the boys...during the week Nick also has school ball. So 7 days a week I am watching someone play or practice somewhere...this weekend it paid off for both the boys...mostly!

Jack's team made it to the final's of the Wilson Tournament this weekend. In the semi-final game Jack kicked the winning goal in a double overtime game. His team mobbed him on the field to huge cheers, and being drenched with water bottles to celebrate. He came away with a big trophy and bigger smile...congrats buddy!

Check him out...

Nick's Premier team also had a tourney this weekend...of course it was 100 miles away from Jacks...but we do what we do for our kids because we love them, right! Anyway Nick injured his foot during the first game of the tournament. It was sore and a little swollen but he took some Advil, sucked it up and played on. His team also made it to the finals...

They lost in the finals 0-1 to a team from was a great game for both teams and we certainly could not be disappointed with how well everyone played on both teams. Until we realized...

Yep...Nick's foot was actually broken. He played 4 games on a broken foot and didn't consider sitting out for a minute. He is already counting the days down to get out of it. His premier team is 7-0. They are undefeated in their division with 3 games to go...he is praying he will be ready to play in the Division playoffs. Here is to hoping...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
