Lake side Breezes





I have been MIA (missing in action) and hope that you too have enjoyed your summer this 2017.

I have had an exceptional amount of rain lakeside.  So much in fact that the level of the lake was up to the top of my dock. 
 Never happened before!


Can you see the poles at the end of my dock?  Can you see the end of my dock?  Well we have had lots of biting bugs this year due to the rain as well.
Finally the bugs are subsiding and I can get out for an evening camp fire.

Hope all of you are having a great summer.

Thanks for stopping by.

Amazing Travel Adventures

Hello and Welcome to my blog today....

To-day I would like to share a layout that I designed from inspiration of several challenge blogs within the scrapbooking industry.

I enjoy supporting challenge blogs as they bring motivation and goal focused clarity 
when creating a layout.  I like to thank all those who organize and provide challenges to help motivate designers within our industry.

I am designing this layout featuring Southern Ridge Trading Company chipboard.  Check out their blog for additional photo's of this layout, my post should go live on March 15th.


This layout features 4 pieces of Southern Ridge chipboard.


I also want to participate in the follow challenge blogs.


My creative Sketches has wonderful sketches and a great community which I encourage all to participate.  Here is the February sketch.

Next up is a challenge blog called Scrap Our Stash.  The March challenge is a Tic Tac Toe challenge.



I choose the center row vertically for this challenge.

Striped paper    GOLD    Flair

This challenge blog is a great motivator to dig deep into your stash!


My last motivational challenge blog is called Picture This.  




Picture This Challenge Blog has a great March mood board this month.


I got my inspiration for my layout from the Lady with the black/white spotted blouse in the mood board.  The gold and black dots also were inspiration for my designed layout.

Here is a close up of part of my layout, so be sure to visit Southern Ridge Trading Company on Wed., March 15th for all the extra photo's.
