Scrapbook Challenges December Mood Board

Typically I struggle with mood boards and pulling out the colors and elements but December's Mood Board at Scrapbook Challenges is just so awesome that I couldn't wait to play along!


Here is my layout, it is a photo of our house during our first snow storm in November.



This layout is # 22 of 50 that I am pushing myself to complete by the end of 2015!  I am also challenging myself to create most of my layouts using my Christmas or Winter stash!  There were so many cute Christmas and Winter lines this year that I wanted them, but knowing I have a HUGE stash of these themes already, I figured if I put a good dent in the stash then I wouldn't feel bad buying the new lines next year! :)

Today I have a layout to share that was inspired by The Memory Nest's Design Team Call Sketch. Best of luck to all that apply!

Here is the fabulous sketch:


Here is my layout - of course when I see circles on sketches I automatically think of a baseball layout! :)


I am also working on my round #3 of 50 projects, which I am hoping to compete by the end of 2015!  This makes layout #21 out of 50 so I am off to scrap! :)

Scrapbook Challenges Sketch #458

This week's Scrapbook Challenge Sketch is a great one - I love multi-photo sketches!  


My layout is of my son and his pals at their honor roll celebration during 8th grade.  So proud that my son made the honor roll for 7 of the 8 quarters of middle school!  AND love that he wears pink so I can break out the girly colors every now and then!
