Something Old and Something New at Scrap Your Crap

A new challenge is up at Scrap Your Crap.  Create a project that uses 50% of your old stash and 50% of your newly acquired scrapbook materials.   I am so glad to be part of the DT of SYC.  The challenges never fail to inspire me to dig in to my stash and find the need to use them.  I have been holding on to DCWV Alphabet Stack for years. I have scrimped on using them for that perfect layout until I could not use them anymore for being outdated.  This month's challenge at SYC compelled me to utilize them.  I mixed it with patterned papers from EP Victoria Garden, Webster's Pages Western Romance Line Dance, stamp by La Blanche Stamp Item 1225, stickers from The Girls Paperie Vintage Whimsy and a template by Crafter's Workshop.  The combination turned out fine (I like it!) and the pictures of my Godchild Julia is perfect for the layout.

Thanks for dropping by.

Sketch 63 at Sketchabilities

As the start of the year kicked in, I could not seem to find any inspiration to scrap.  Sketch 63 of Karan came in to my rescue.  

My Sketch:

This is inspired by Sketch # 63 at Sketchabilities:

How could you go wrong with this lovely Sketch?  The cute pictures of my Godchild Julia afforded some inspiration as well.  The brick background is a current favorite.  I bought a brick template by Crafter's Workshop from Lasting Impression (LSS).

The mini flowers are from a friend, karen Ngo, who bought it from Bangkok.

Please do drop by at Sketchabilities for some inspiration.

Thank you.
