create memories

Hello friends!  I found a beautiful sketch blog called "Keeping the Best" while browsing around and I loved their current sketch so much I sat down one night and this lo just came together almost on it's own! I love the freedom of a blank page, you never quite know where it's going to take you....but...I can get lost in that freedom and end up fussing over a lo for days on end.....whereas a a sketch gives me direction and I can pull it together without over-thinking things, can anyone else relate to that? LOL!!!!
I found this old photo of me and my little lion, miss those days when he was so small! I am entering this lo in the Keeping the Best current challenge:

Hello, our dearly beloved readers!) 

We hasten to you with a new sketch and mega inspiration from our designers! Author sketch - our resident designer Lizaveta-Lizzaveta . 

Sponsor assignments online store Hobby profi !
Look in the store: there is a wide range of products for different kinds of art, and not just for you ;)

I think they put up sketches twice a month, I saw some really some lovely work on their blog.

As I was taking a photo of this lo I remembered that the Berry Bleu blog had a challenge this month that was all about autumn colors, which I was really going for here. So much inspiration to be found on Marivic's blog, really love it.  You can find their current challenge here:

October Challenge "Autumn is in the Air"....

Hi everyone!!
This is  Marivic and I am hosting the October Challenge. 
If you're one of the lucky ones that get to live where you can see the Fall Foliage, then I envy you.
I live in Houston where it is still in the low 90's and humid. The weather will start to cool off around Halloween.

But if you live in the Southern hemisphere...I am sure you are enjoying the beauty of Spring in all its glory?

It is birthday month and I would love to see what you will create for us this month...

Fall colors is our theme this month.

Use the colors that you see in the mood board.

So.......I hope everyone had some scrap time this weekend, take care, 'til next time! 

Hugs, Lisa XO

P.S. I won both the Berry71Bleu challenge in October and I also won the Keeping the Best challenge! I was so excited today, and so happy that I get to be a guest designer!

Delight...a brand new kit!

Hello everyone! I'm back again to share another brand new kit for The Scrapbook Diaries! Janene has kept me busy with all the beautiful goodies she has sent me recently. This time it was pure Prima loveliness with the Delight collection designed by Jodi Lee. When I saw the soft blues and pinks in this collection I went digging and found this old photo... I think I am maybe 5 or 6? I adore old family photos and brining them to life in a design..... I loved creating these pages...this kit is loaded with enough Prima papers and embellishments that I managed to make 3 layouts and even had enough left over to make a card! Please visit The Scrapbook Diaries here for more info on this kit, and don't forget to check out their online shop here, they carry some really cool paper, chipboards, paints, and much, much more. 

A vintage photo of my beautiful grandma, Dorothy, miss her. XO

Me and my my little man.

Bye for now, hugs, Lisa XO

Beautiful...... a new kit for The Scrapbook Diaries

Hello everyone! So pleased to have designed another mixed media kit for The Scrapbook Diaries called Beautiful. There are some gorgeous Prima and Basic Grey papers included in this kit as well as some Prima embellishments and flowers....also used some Faber Castell gelatos which I really enjoyed playing with! The second image is the bonus layout that can be created with the materials also included in the kit......

This lo is very special to me as it is a photograph of my paternal grandfather George. He was born in London in 1906 and was an officer in the Royal Air Force during WWII. He holds a very special place in my heart as he died before I was born and I never had the chance to really know him....I treasure the few photographs I  have of him....XO

For more information about how to purchase this kit please visit The Scrapbook Diaries here.....just a reminder that The Scrapbook Diaries shop carries some of the prettiest products out there, and some drop dead gorgeous kits by some of the most creative designers in the scrap world!
Until next time......hugs, Lisa XOX
