Philadelphia and Erie Railroad for a Lasting Memories challenge

Good Morning :) Happy Sunday to you :) We've had some great weather this week for it being the beginning of Fall, high 80s and their saying we may break a record tomorrow.
Today is the last challenge for this month over at Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenges. The theme this month has been All About Patterns and this week's challenge is Chevrons. Use some chevron papers on your layout:
 I created this layout for LOAD216 Day 27: It was a Geography (the study of the physical features of the earth and its atmosphere, and of human activity as it affects and is affected by these, including the distribution of populations and resources, land use, and industries.) prompt which you could look at so many things with this prompt. The layout of the land so to speak. So I did a little peace of our world with this layout. The abandon railroad bank on the edge of our property. Our own little Rails to Trails in our backyard :) Wish I would have thought of that when I typing up the journaling :) We enjoy walks up through there quite often. A little history of the railroad added to the journaling too.
Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation to this prompt over at Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenges.

Scenic Cruising for a Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style challenge

If you are looking for the Sketch N Scrap post you can find it here

Hello again :) My 2nd post of the day is using this fun sketch over at Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style. We are changing things up just a bit over at Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style starting this month. We will now be posting sketches on the 1st and the 15th.
The mid month sketch for September is courtesy of the talented Emma Pescott:

 This is the card I created with this sketch:
I used my current counterfeit kit for part of my card and an old counterfeit kit for the road trip theme items on my card. A 3X4 card that I used to create my title block for my Double page layout:
I created this fun layout using 5 photos and 5 project life cards :) Nothing like bashing the project pife card stash a bit :) I used alot of old counterfeit kit for the road trip theme items on my layout. The cards came from Me & My Big Ideas pocket pages collection of theme cards that are vacation/road trip related. I also used My Mind's Eye Hello World decorative brads and Tim Holtz word phrases for my embellishing.
 The left side of the double page layout. I used 2 Project Life cards on it. I used the sketch over at Sketches in Thyme for this layout:
 I just loved this sketch when I seen it
The Project Life card used for the title on the left side page of the layout.
The top corner embellishment and under the green paper I did one of my fav techniques smooshing with packaging, used 3 different Heidi Swapp's color shine inks in the Tea, Citron and Sweet Mint. Cause I used my fav technique this falls under the Scrappy Sisters Scrap September challenge Day #14-Fav Technique. It was fun playing with the inks on both pages of the layout.
Interesting sign that explains a bit about the bridge.
Right side of the layout has 3 Project Life cards on it so a total of 5 Project Life cards on the Double Page layout :) I also did the package smooshing technique on this page too. You can see more of it in the below photo.
My journaling about not finding the right turn but lead us to this magnificent sight :)

Found this fun road map paper in my stash and knew that I had to use it :)
Fun Project Life card to add some extra details. I added journaling in various spots on this 2 page layout. I had fun creating this layout :) and looking forward to creating a few more layouts from that fun day :)

#RoadTrip for Sketch N Scrap sketch challenge

Good Morning :) Today is the 2nd layout sketch over at Sketch N Scrap for the month:
No automatic alt text available. 

Isn't this a cool sketch! I used it for the title page for a day trip we took to Honesdale, PA:
 This was us leaving Williamsport, PA at 6:30 AM the sun was just starting to rise. For the one layer on the sketch I used the tickets that I got online when I purchased my tickets even though I didn't need them for the trip I printed them out anyway cause all the information needed was on them.
 I used part of a past counterfeit kit and part of my kit this month too. Used stamps and brads to embellish the page. This layout is also for Day #3-No People of the Scrappy Sisters Scrap September challenge.
My journaling is of when I started investigating Honesdale, PA to see what was all there, buying the tickets online and then the plan for the day. It was a fun day and lots of layouts to come from that day :) 
Thanks for stopping by today and if you want to have some scrappy please join us over at

Doodling Around for Use Your Stuff challenge

Good Morning and welcome to this week's challenge over at Use Your Stuff challenge blog. This week I host the challenge and I challenged the girls to a color challenge:
Fall is in the air! Use fall colors : Red, Gold and Orange 
This is what I created for this challenge:
 This is a layout that was when the Grandkids were marking their faces on the pumpkins before carving them out, Pap suggested they do this first. This has been a fun series of layout that I created from this event last year and I have one more to do yet to finish it up.
I used the current sketch over at Let's Scrap Sketches for my layout. So glad to see them still doing Double page sketches:
I used circles in place of the gears on my layout.
 The Left side of the layout. Holds 3 of the 7 pictures I had. Some how I missed getting a picture of Isabelle marking the face on her pumpkin. I used a couple of pieces of cardstock from my background, then pattern papers (lots of scrap papers) used the 6X6 paper that was in my counterfeit kit from July: Geometric Splatter, used 2 papers from my 100 pattern paper pile. I used alot of circles on my layout compared to the gears that were in the sketch challenge. The circles then fall into the Scrappy Sisters Scrap September challenge Day 8: Circles.
 My title (which I have now corrected as I figured out I was missing the L in Doodling) and my journaling (done in red pen to match the challenge)
The right side of the layout. Used two circles for the photo mat vs their sketch having the one. With the title being about doodling I thought I should also add some to my layout. 
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing what you create for this fun color challenge over at  Use Your Stuff challenge blog

JR Prom for a Lasting Memories Challenge

Good Morning and welcome to a new week's challenge over at Lasting Memories. This month's challenge is All About Patterns and this week's challenge pattern is florals. I actually struggle using floral pattern paper for some odd reason. But I try to use it when I can and this layout used floral paper and floral embellishments:
This layout came out of LOAD517 Day 31
The Martian – 2015
Give yourself some credit! What ingenious idea or creative solution to a problem have you come up with?
 I went Off Prompt :) Just couldn't come up with anything today for the prompt :) So I did a couple of photos that have been sitting on my desk ready to be scrapped :)             
Tammy's youngest son Bradley and his girl Courtney looking very stunning for the JR Prom. As they go to separate schools they actually attend each others proms.
Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation for this week's challenge posted over at Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenge blog
