Getting funky....

So how cool is this song?

I grabbed it from Belinda's blog. Actually, I swiped three songs from her playlist. The video is cool too. I had never heard of Robbie Williams, turns out he has been around for years...I am so out of the loop it's embarrassing. Anyway, I need to search and listen to more of his songs. My new favorite. So I got into a funky mood and changed my playlist.

You know when your washer machine starts going thud-thud, thud-thud, thud-thud as you are washing your towels, yeah, it means it's about to break. So now it's broken. I can't wait to get it fixed, but there's something about doing 6 loads of laundry in an hour and a half at the laundromat. Big feeling of accomplishment. And relief.

And I am happy to say I finally scrapped a paper page. I have been on a digital streak and the last time my hands rolled out some adhesive was back in August. Yup, clearing mounds of laundry will do that to me. Felt good to take out the trimmer, you know? So my comeback page was for the color challenge. This week we have Michelle StClair, she wanted red and gray, and this is what we went with. I dug way deep into my stash and found Studio Calico's January kit that was perfect for the colors:

gypsy red - marshmallow - powder blue - deepest gray

I combined the color challenge with my design for Sketch This. I talk about how similar my son and my father are. I see a lot of my Dad in Zayn.

Here are a few more for Color Combos Galore:

Week 89 with Nicole Eshelman, one of my favorite scrappers of all time. She wanted aqua and butterscotch:

aqua - butterscotch - baby blue - fever pink

I used the colors for Pencil Lines Sketch #102: I really had a hard time with this sketch. But I am really happy how it turned out. I also went a little too light on the pink scallop.

Week 88 was with Layle Koncar, she wanted aqua and brown:

aquamarine - pale turquoise - deepest brown - goldenrod

Here is what I did with the colors using Pencil Lines Sketch #101. Zayn was really having a bad day.
Sorry. You can't always get what you want, buddy.

another one for Sketch This.

and last but not least, one of my new favorites. I remember taking these photos of Rianna atop of my kitchen counter. She was acting a little crazy, just playfully screaming into the camera while I snapped away. Totally fun. This was for Janelle's Sketch#66:

and so another super long post for not having updated in over a week. But I do super appreciate you coming by and visiting!
Have a great day!! COMMENTS:

I've Got a Secret!

Guess it, and you will get a prize!

I can't tell you the whole secret....yet. I can tell you this, I have added three new designers to the Color Combos Galore blog! And they are FABULOUS, their pages always knock my socks off! Wanna guess who they are?

I have 3 goodie boxes: one from October Afternoon's Hometown Collection, Pink Paislee's Pop Fashion Collection, and another one from Basic Grey's new Urban Prairie Collection. The first person to guess correctly will win. There are three answers, three winners, one box for each winner. Here are the clues, start guessing!!

One is from France.

Two are from Australia.

Three are brunettes.

One was just chosen to join a major manufacturer's design team.

One is an amazing freelance photographer.

One was recently published in Simple Scrapbooks magazine.

One was discovered while playing the color challenges.

One is a sketch artist.

Two are fellow PEAS.

Good luck! I will be making my announcement on both blogs Friday morning, the 12th, so you have until then to leave your comments on this blog! CCG DT girls, no cheating! COMMENTS:

and so I'm back....

Again, I haven't blogged in a long while. It's back to school day today, so soon I will have more time for me and things will be more calm. Zayn started 2nd grade, we rushed like crazy, I slept through the alarm and we got there late. Horrible. No pics, even forgot to unload the camera. We will just make pretend tomorrow. Jabran's paperwork got messed up and he couldn't start today, isn't that so messed up?

I will post some back to school pics tomorrow, today I will play catch up and share some recent layouts. Would love for you to say hi and come cheer me up! Really depressed how the day turned out.

Color Combos Galore
This week's Combo #87, we have Sharyn Tormanen, she wanted green and black, and I was thrilled when she ended up choosing this combo!

aqua - black - kiwifruit - tangerine

my page using Pencil Lines Sketch #100. Love these whimsical circles, first time trying something like that out.

Last week for Combo #86 we had the super talented Jennifer McGuire. It really amazes me how she comes up with new techniques all the time. LOVE her! She wanted kraft and green, I checked her gallery out and didn't see much purple, so I sent her this combo:

fuchsia - parakeet - buttercream - caribbean

my page using Pencil Lines Sketch #99:

here is a make-up for Combo #85 that I didn't have a chance to do. We had Two Peas in a Bucket's Garden Girl Sarah Klemish that week. She is totally awesome, her style and pages are so unique! Her choices were turquoise and celery and this is the combo she chose:
lagoon - sunshine - dairy queen - avocado

my page, also for this week's sketch at Sketch This!:

Sketch This!
Here are two that I did for the Sketch This! blog.



Thanks for stopping by, have a super great day!
