SEM's "New Chapter" Blog Hop!

Hi there Fellow Scrappers! So nice to have you join us for Scrapping Everyday Miracle's "A New Chapter" Blog Hop! What a great way to introduce you to our newest Design Team members, share inspiration, and have a chance to win some AWESOME prizes!

Marjolaine, one of our new Design Team members, asked us each to create a project that represents a new chapter in our lives (and to include a "Scrap Twist" of using a book page). 

It didn't take much thought for me to come up with my project, as only this summer we've become the proud new owners of a vintage 1957 Airstream trailer, and we're officially "Streamers" now!! This is our first ever trailer, and it sure beats tent camping:).
SUPPLIES: Background paper (Theresa Collins)
Red plaid paper ("streaming"--PaperTrey Ink)
Other paper and "Adventure" sticker (Echo Park)
Cricut cartridge-Cuttin' Up
Heart Punch (Stampin' Up!)

I really hope you'll join us with this fun "New Chapter" challenge and create a project yourself! (see the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog for the full run-down!) By doing so, you'll earn yourself another chance at winning the grand prize!

New Take on Old Photo...

I love finding an older photo that I didn't scrap that will work on a new just doesn't happen that often for me. So when I found this cute photo of Ellie with her BFF Grace I knew I should use it on this month's Sketch Challenge over at SEM.

The sketch this month is from Shimelle.

And here's my take on it:

Love those hexagons!

All About Daddy....

This month's challenge over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles was all about the "boys"(or men) in our lives. I loved this it was the perfect way to do a page all about Pete and everything he loves!

I also loved that I was able to use a bunch of scraps from my "scraps" bin. That being said, I don't know all of the manufacturers for the patterned paper...but I'll give you what I know!

I also loved that I actually used my Cricut machine again (for the title)! It had been awhile...but I love sorta being able to customize the title (fun, fun!!).

Here's my layout:
