Art Freckles It's A Love Thing Blog Hop!!

It's time to do some blog hopping again! In honour of Valentine's Day on Monday, Art Freckles is having an "It's a Love Thing" blog hop today!!

For your scrapbooking entertainment and inspiration here is a lovey layout I did of my hubby and I. I combined 2 of Art Freckles kits to make it: this month's The Brady's kit (one of my fave's!) and the December 2010 card kit.

I also made 4 Valentine's Day cards using the November 2010 card kit. It is a Christmas themed card kit, but with a few lovey embellishments from my stash (MYB, MM & Pink Paislee) I was able to do a love theme! Shows just how versatile the kits are!!

I used one Pagemaps sketch to do all 4 cards and the sketch is Art Freckles card sketch of the month for February! You can find the sketch and the challenge thread right HERE.

The next stop on your blog hop will be the lovely Stephanie Zito right HERE. Have fun hopping and if you didn't start at the beginning...go back to Art Freckles blog right HERE. There will be a draw for a RAK from Art Freckles from everyone that posts on all the blogs today! Happy Valentine's Day!!

January Challenges

I got a couple of Art Freckles challenges done this month...
First there is the layout sketch challenge. The sketch is by Pagemaps. You can check the sketch out in the challenge thread HERE. This was also from our trip to Niagara Falls 2 years ago, lunch at the Rainforest Cafe.
And MY challenge on Art Freckles for January is to use rubons! You can check out my challenge thread HERE. I used rubons for the title and on little plastic pieces stapled to the bottom right of the page.

One of my goals for 2011 is to get caught up on scrapping some older photos so I can get some of the hundreds of layouts I have sitting in drawers into albums. I have been working on our vacation to Niagara Falls in the summer of 2008 for the last couple of weeks. Here are a few pages from our trip to Marineland. I was also using up some of my older Fancy Pants papers...another goal ~ use up some of my stash!
