Great Memories of You Layout for Lindy's Stamp Gang & Once Upon A Sketch October Challenge!

Hi everyone, 
Today I would like to share a layout with a picture of my sweet grandmother who past away last January!
I think of her every single day about all the things she did & was it's a great loss but they say time will heal. I do think it's possible but not for me at this moment.
On the picture she is holding our son Kevin eight and a half years ago.....a precious memory.

Great Memories of You: 

For this layout I used the Pop Quiz collection by BoBunny I never thought I could pull of a romantic layout with that collection.

Let's have a closer look: 

All the pretty doilies are from Cheery Lynn Designs they add so much gorgeousness to a page!
The flowers are BoBunny and the chipboard is off course Imaginarium Designs.

With this layout I am going to enter the October 2014 color challenge at:
Lindy's Stamp Gang

I always love their color challenges for this layout I used the following colors: 

I also going to enter for a fourth time at: 

I really do loved the sketch this month.
And also the theme was a wonderful one this layout will be very dear to me.

I didn't think that my layout needed much explaining so the journaling on my layout is all the journaling I have no hidden text this time.

I wish you all a wonderful Tuesday & a very creative week.

Together forever & ever:  

For this layout I have used the beautiful "Enchanted Garden"collection by BoBunny it totally fit the colors of the flowers and what I wanted to create.....light & airy.

Let's have a closer look:

If you look on the picture above I slightly sprayed the lace with the the spray's I find that kinda hard to do because they are so pretty.

The flower vines are such a addition to your layout's I love to use them. My layout was based on the October sketch at The Scrapbook Store I really love that sketch.

That cute little together metal piece is by Scrapberry's such a great company with beautiful products.

Remember When Layout for ***Tresors de Luxe*** + Playing at Lindy's Stamp Gang, Cheery Lynn Designs & Once Upon A Sketch!

Hi lovelies, 
Today I would like to share a layout that I made for my DT work at 
"Tresors de Luxe"
As much as I love seeing all the pretty OTP projects by my fellow DT members my heart is with layouts. 

Remember When: 

If you look at the picture above you don't see the nice blue shimmer it has sadly :-(
 I used a picture of my mom way back when she was a little girl, my grandmother loved doing my mom's hair. My mom hated it because her mom made it look like a Shirley Temple hair do she always talks about it when I show her this picture.

Let's have a closer look:

Here you see the shimmer blue what I was talking about :-)

Tresors de Luxe products used:



With this layout I will be entering the gorgeous October 2014 color challenge at:

I really love working with the spray's & embossing powders Lindy's Stamp Gang has to offer.
Look at this gorgeous color challenge:

As some of you might know my husband and I love Koi's so this one was very dear to me!
First I wanted to use a picture of our Koi's but it became my mom hihihihi lol silly change right??
Thank you so much for this amazing color challenge I had so much fun.

The color spray's I used are:
Royal Peacock Fire
Black Orchid Silver
Kissin' Kenickie Coral
Clam Bake Beige
Bodacious Blush

I will be also entering at:
When I saw the theme I was very happy: 

The dies I used: 

And I will be entering for a third time at:
I have to tell you I was really inspired by the sketch this month as you can see, the theme was the women in out lives! Well this is a layout of my mom when she was just a little girl.
My mom loves haiku poems so on one of the doilies tucked behind the picture I wrote a poem trying it to be a haiku *grin* I do hope she will like it when I give this to her.
Also the quote by Tim Holtz underneath the picture was totally made for my mom.....
One time this amazing sketch again: Maybe you see I kinda flipped it :-)))

Thank you so much for taking the time to come to my blog and leaving a comment.
 I really appreciate you doing so!
I hope I inspired you to play along both challenges & I wish you all a very creative week.
