We are thrilled to announce the newest member of our ScrapThat! Design Team. Our talented November Guest Designer
~Tracey Gregory ~
will now be joining us each month with her amazing work!!

We are delighted that Tracey will be inspiring you each month with her amazing ScrapThat! kit creations. She resides in the mountains of the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts with her husband and children. More of Tracey's gorgeous work can be found on her blog, A Lifetime of Pages.

"I am so excited to be a part of the ScrapThat! family! I am a Christian, happily married mom of 4 children, ages ranging from 12-21, and my spoiled yorkie. I work as a RN in a long term care center which often blesses me with the gift of hearing the stories and seeing the photos of my geriatric residents as they share their histories with me. When not working or scrapping, I can be found at my daughter’s drama activities, the church nursery or working with my church’s drama team.
I would say my style is definately shabby. I love layers of distressing and lots of flowers! Mixed media is where I am eager to learn and play. I am inspired by music and color and always have scraps of paper or napkins with layout ideas scribbled on them! I am currently on DTs for Scrapping Everyday Miracles and a Stuck on U Sketches, a sketch challenge blog. I am so looking forward to getting to know you all better!"

Okay, see you Friday for the kit Reveal!

Nov 21 SOUS Card Sketch

Yay! I'm so excited!! There are so many things to be thankful for this year but one of the things I am most grateful for is that we are finally moved and getting all settled in our new home. I have lots to do yet in terms decorating and getting everything just so-so  .. but we are unpacked and feeling somewhat normal again! Whew! Praising God for that! 

So, along with that comes a big reason to celebrate ... my scrappy things are out where I can see them and put them to use.  Saturday evening, I actually took some time to make a quick card for today's challenge! It's pretty simple but it felt so good to play with paper again!! 

I've been dying to tear in to my Graphic 45 Birdsong collection and used today's sketch as the perfect opportunity. I did lots of paper layering although I did not distress my edges but inked them instead. Then I added a couple of embellishments from the collection and popped them on adhesive squares for dimension.  For glimmer, I've used some rhinestones (instead of my usual pearls) and scattered them here and there. 

Lastly, I've used some Petaloo florals as accents .. so yummy! Oh, yes! I did decorate the inside of the card but forgot to photograph it.  Speaking of photographing,  I will need to find a new spot for taking my photos of my cards. I have the perfect spot for taking my layouts photos but I"ll need to get creative with my card taking location. We are blessed with lots of trees close to the house, so we have lots of shade.  I apologize that I didn't get a better photo this time  .. but I'm working on that!                                                                                          

Alright, enough about me! Time to challenge you to play along with this fortnight's Card Sketch at Stuck on U Sketches. If you haven't already been then, you'll be amazed at what the DT has done with this Leah's great sketch! 

Thanks for coming by! I always appreciate your visits! And to my USA friends, Happy Thanksgiving! Stay safe and have a great holiday!

That's it for today! Be back soon ..... I have to finish getting unpacked! 

Featured ...

Wow, I have been so busy with moving and getting settled that I have not had a chance to share that one of my older layouts was featured over on the Swirlydoos blog last week. Funny how your style can change over the course of a year or more. But I still love this great color combo and the adorable photo of dgd Peyton. 

Check  out the blog post for more info on purchasing the awesome Purple trim. Can we say LOVE? 

I hope to be back in a few days with some house photos. But even more .. I sure hope to get back to scrapping very soon!! Until then ... 

Happy scrapping!!
