FRESCA! - Guest Designer for 1-2-3 Get Scrappy. and Sketch help from Scrap Much

And last but not least... my final post in my string of accomplishments.  :)  
I tell ya.. .as much as I hated our internet outage... sure does allow you to say "Oh Well" and do other things.  
Back in November,  I was asked to be a Guest Designer for this month 
at 1-2-3 Get Scrappy!!    
Yay me! 
 I love that all the different blogs have their own challenge themes... and this is a fun one!!
They always use a "Tic-Tac Board" where you pick 3 things in any direction and use them on a layout.
Here is my layout...

Oh our little Fresca.  We decided to acquire this gem of a kitten last April to give our older cat Roxy a friend and well "Just Because."  She was supposed to de-stress me a little.  Well, I think it has been the opposite.  LOL!  But good thing she is cute.  
Go check out the 1-2-3 Get Scrappy blog.  Lots of fun inspiration!
You have until March 2nd to join.
Thank you Ladies for having me!!

You have until February 28th to join these Ladies.

BAM! - Sketches in Thyme Feb. 1st sketch. + some help from Frosted Designs

And for my 2nd catch up post... I am up over on the Sketches in Thyme Sketch # 139 blog today. 
  This is my rendition of the February 1st sketch.  Absolutely love these sketches and am so glad when I can design with them.
You have until February 28th to join in on the fun!!  

Our son had such a transitioning year in baseball last year.  He had only played one year of T-Ball and then moved up to Rookie league last year and long story short, we figured out that he is a hitter!!  So fun to watch.  His nick name just happens to be "Bam" from Bam Bam and The Flinstones.  When he started hitting the ball basically every single time up to bat... the nick name took on a new meaning.  Anxiously waiting for baseball season to begin this year. 

Here is the Sketch designed by Bev Code.

I am also entering this in the current Frosted Designs Friday challenge.
It's all about DIRECTION!
My layout has many arrows and the phrase "Outta Here" indicating that the baseball was hit far and high.  :)  
If you need some more ideas on their challenge... here is the exact description taken from the Frosted Designs blog.
Your project needs to have something indicating direction.  You can go literal and use arrows or get wordy and use directional words:  East, West, Up, Down, Over, Under, Left, get the idea.  You can even get a little creative and use a compass or weather vane....  You can interpret this any way you want, but be sure to explain it in your blog post if it's not really obvious!
Thanks again for coming by!  Much appreciated!!

S-BUX DATE - LMCB # 228 "Sweet as can be"

Happy Tuesday!  I am going to be on a posting roll.  Finished 3 layouts in 3 days.  Woo Hoo.  Was out of internet and phone last week for quite some time and then my car died.  LOL.  So got alot of other "House" stuff done which allowed me some ME TIME!  Yay!!
  I'm here to bring you the latest challenge over at Lasting Memories.
LMCB # 228 - "Sweet as can be."
Create a layout with food/beverage that is "Sweet."  
You will notice the DT also used it as a play on words.  You can do that too.  :)
Here's mine...

Daughter and I had 3 hours to ourselves one day last year, and our first stop was a "Sweet" stop at Starbucks for her favorite frap drink and my favorite mocha drink.  Yummy!!  
You have until February 27th to join us!  Please do!!
I also used a sketch from My Scraps and More Sketches # 99.
Loved this one!
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Stay tuned.  I've got more to share.  :)
