Project Life September

Project Life has become a part of our lives. We all love it in my family. I hope to keep up with it next year as well. For this particular week, I chose to use stamps. I love Market Street Stamps. If you don't know who they are, you should definitely check them out! I am a big fan of their background stamps! They ink and stamp fabulously.

We went for the FAAN walk on September 8th. Anurag has multiple food allergies. The walk was to create awareness and raise funds for research. I hope he gets over some of his food allergies as he grows up. Life is tough with them, more for him than us. Food allergies can be life threatening, his is. He also misses out on a lot of stuff other kids can do or places where he can go just because there is a high risk of coming in contact with allergens. We are trying to educate him so he can be careful but he is just 3. So, for right now he knows he has food allergies and not to share food. Majority of the pics from this week are from the walk and there are few other everyday pics.

I got three new inks. The neon inks by hero arts. They are super cool! I am probably going to get the other three as well. They are truly neon! 

I had the perfect stamp to go with A's photo here. He is so cute, he loved the guitar but he also loved the box it came in too:) He pretend played the guitar box for days, singing loudly and dancing. Isn't the saying on the photo beautiful?

I used the saying ' be whoever you wanna be' on the gymboree pic. It was all about the mailman in the class that day and all the kids were pretending to be one. I used the brackets from one of the MSS stamps on the journaling card. 

The sun-rays card with the word saying 'Joy' is my favorite! I loved the little spaces on the rays which look like speckles instead of just solid sun-rays. 

Sid got to meet Darth Vader at the FAAN walk! Had to get his picture with him. He is crazy about Star Wars! Look at him he is so happy, even my pics with him don't turn out so good ;) I used the grid stamp for the background.

A and his cousins in Sydney facetime atleast twice or thrice a month. They haven't met in 2 years but still know a lot about each other:) I am so glad for technology! My parents finally got an ipad and now we can all facetime! Yay! I saw them after a little more than two years. So happy:) I love the little wood veneer bubble by SC. Did you see freckled fawn came out with some recently? They are on my wishlist! 

I have mixed and matched different MSS sets for this weeks layout. Any guesses which ones? I am not going to list them. Let me see if anyone can guess ;-) I haven't use any patterned paper. I started with cardstock and just went stamp happy! I am linking this to the block party challenge over at Market Street Stamps! I am hoping to be back with some more PL pages this week. Have a good week. Thanks for dropping by!

Color Me Scrappy Challenge #20

We went to Dewberry Farm in October. Every year they have a pumpkin patch and a ton of activities for kids. This was our second year. I remember last year was fun. Anurag ran around the pumpkin patch, pushed the wheel barrow and played drums on the pumpkins. It was a fun and exhausting day! This year was no different! We had tons of fun. Anurag was open to trying out more things than last year. This was Anurag at Dewberry last year. He so loved it!

And this is Anurag this year,still playing drums on the pumpkins:)


I scrapped the pictures of the farm from this year using the color palette and sketch at CMS #20. This is what I came up with!


I really missed sewing on this layout. We are sleep training A and it took forever for him to sleep. There was no way I was making any noise with the Sewing machine or the Cameo. I compensated my  thirst for sewing with hand-stitching a string of sequins. If you don't have a sewing machine or are not comfortable using it, an alternate is to hand-stitch on the layouts. I liked the way it turned out. Sequins are a good way to add a splash of color and since I didn't have any purple  paper, these sequins did the trick.

It has been gloomy since morning and I couldn't get a good picture. I kind of tweaked it with picasa to get it closer to the true colors. Need to get studio lighting ;-)


Don't you think that little OA pin with the arrow pointing to over the top is so so cute! I am also loving these wax seals by BG! I have never seen those before! This was a quick and simple layout. Working with a sketch always makes it faster. 

This challenge is open till December, 20th. Don't forget to use the sketch along with the color palette! Kimm from Beary Scrap is sponsoring the month of December! She is giving away a 20$ gift certificate to her fabulous store to whoever wins! She also makes her own stamps!! They are perfect for cards/PL/smash!. 



Thanks for dropping by! I love hearing from you. Please connect me to your blogs as well, so I can get inspired! Hop on over to Color Me Scrappy to see what the other designer's whipped up for this challenge. I hope you are having fun holiday shopping! I sure am:)
