SEM's March Sketch Challenge

I'm in charge of the Sketch Challenge this month over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.

I loved this sketch by Debbie Gaydos.

The SCRAP TWIST was to use buttons! (of which I have so many I don't know what to do with them all...that's why I chose to use them!).

Here is my take on the sketch...
This is from our trip to the Winter Carnival in McCall, Idaho. For lunch we decided to try out a new pizza place, as pizza is our family favorite!...And it was AWESOME! I love these fun "pizza-eating" pics of Pete and Ellie! 

Here's a close-up:
Loved using some new fun stuff from Doodlebug's Take Note the rainbow chevron paper and the gray number paper plus most of the tag stickers (a few a the stickers are also from Simple Stories Sn@p! collection). So bright and fun...right up my alley!!

Just for's a few more pics to share from our McCall Winter Carnival trip. They have the most amazing ice/snow sculptures there!

So cool...lots of Mickey-themed Winter Magic sculptures

Snowing like crazy!

 Mr. Wizard! Cool, huh?

Now check out the slide on the back of it...Ellie loved it!!

We also took a fun hay cart ride around town on this...lots of fun...but so much snow it was a little crazy!

We'll definitely go back (and have some pizza at the Blue Moose again too:))


  1. Your layout is amazing! I'm envious you got your hands on Doodlebug's Take Note paper. Did CW get that in recently? I placed an order on 2peas last night with a sale they were having, but they were sold out of the rainbow chevron. :( Your winter carnival looks like such a cool event too--What fun slide! :)

    1. Mendi..I got it from Archivers here in Boise, not CW.

  2. Looks like so much fun! such a heartwarming pic!

  3. Cute layout, the photos are so sweet!
