Bonjour Rufus

 I'm back with a fun mid-month sketch at Sketch N Scrap . I loved the possibility of using different pattern papers to create the blocks of colour shown on the sketch.

My layout:

I used papers from different 6 x 6 paper pads to create the strips and the tag,  a Graphic 45 card, a plain white envelope which I stamped with green dots, and some OLD fibers (remember those ? ) and flowers from my stash. 

The journaling, in French, reads:

As I was out walking with Rufus, a lady stepped out of her car to ask if she could say hello to Rufus. Her family had two Cairn terriers growing up. She told me about her dogs. About their faithful and fearless temperament, their reddish coats, the special food her mum used to make for them to help with their allergies. She loved meeting Rufus. She left thanking me for having given her that special moment. 

Thank you for stopping by. 

À la prochaine, Until next time.

 Happy 2023 ! 

Here's to a year of making memories, and having fun scrapbooking them.

I want to share a layout I created for the Facebook group Bash Your Scrapbook Stash's sketch challenge.

The sketch:

My layout using the Graphic 45 "Well Groomed" line, as well as some old stash. 

Poor Rufus. He's asking me if he really has to wear a coat during a trip to Sutton, Québec in December.

Thank you for stopping by.

Until next time. À la prochaine.

Woods Work

 I'm back with a new layout for the Sketch N Scrap October sketch challenge. I really liked the sketch Lori created, and found it would work nicely for the photos I wanted to scrap.

Here's the sketch:

My layout:

I used two photos instead of the one, omitted the little grouping on the top left, and moved the title onto the paper strips. 

The tree(s) embellishments are from a Stampin' Up set called " Lovely as a tree". I thought it was perfect for the photos of my husband working in the woods.

The title letters are from my all time favorite stamp set from Hero Arts. 

Thank you for stopping by.

À la prochaine, Until next time,

Hello Beautiful !

 I would like to share a layout I created for the Sketch N Scrap September challenge. Here is the sketch:

My layout:

As you can see, I stayed fairly true to the sketch.

I've had that background paper in my stash for years. I'm so glad I finally got to use it. The fancy leaves are from a Silhouette cut file. The chipboard pieces were bought at out local dollar store. The tag is from Heidi Swapp (also really old).

The journaling is about my old girl, Maggie still wanting to go for walks with me everyday even though her mobility is not what is used to be.

That's it for now. I look forward to playing with next month's sketch.

À la prochaine, Until next time.

So Many Farm Fresh Eggs


It's been a while since I last scrapbooked but I wanted to give this month's Scrap our Stash BINGO challenge a go. You can find the link to the challenge here.

I chose the second row: Journaling card, Colour red, Ephemera, Twine, and Layers.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the title, as well as the corners. 


"We have so many eggs this year that we've been giving them away just to get rid of them."


I hope to be back soon for another fun challenge.

À la prochaine, Until next time,

Camera Shy

 My first time creating a layout for the Bash Your Scrapbook Stash challenge on Facebook. BYSS

I entered my layout for the sketch challenge #3.

My take on it.

I flipped the sketch to better suit my photos. The flower takes the place of one of the circles but is still a circular element. It took me a bit of time to figure out where to place my title letters. I wanted the small, circular stamped letters but they didn't look right on the large piece of pp over my photos. I'm happy with the placement of them now. That large metal butterfly has been in my stash forever. So glad I finally got to use it. 

It's really difficult to get a good photo of Maggie. As soon as she sees the camera, she tries to hide. 

That's it for now. 

À la prochaine, Until later.

4 sweet kids

 I'm back after a 6 months break from scrapbooking. I've rediscovered my love of sewing and it's been keeping me busy trying out new projects. But, my scrapbooking supplies were calling me back to either put them to use or get rid of them. Truth be told, I'd like to keep going at it a bit longer if I can. Thank goodness for challenges such as this one to give me a bit of motivation.

This month's sketch at Sketch-N-Scrap was perfect for me to scrap four recent photos of my four grand-kids. 

I adapted the sketch by placing the banner(s) underneath the circle, which was cut out with my Silhouette. The 3 flower grouping was moved to the top section, and my title was placed on a tag. I've added some embellishments and letter stickers that have been in my stash forever. 

I hope you like it. 

Thank you for dropping by. 

À la prochaine, Until next time,
