It's a Sketchy Challenge!

How fun is this? Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine has put out a challenge to all us scrapbookers (click here for details). It is a new monthly challenge and this is the sketch that we are to use for September: 
And here is my layout using this sketch:
I so enjoyed doing this layout. The photos were taken at my girlfriend's stagette. It was nice to have a picture with all of us girls - it just doesn't happen that often these days!

The product I used was primarily by Authentique. The papers and cardstock accents are from their Splendid line and I think they are simply splendid! I love the plaid paper - the colour, the texture - it is all great! This fabulous ribbon accent is from Prima and was a lot of fun to incorporate. The rhinestones come attached so it is super easy to use!

I really liked this challenge, but unfortunately I forgot to use something Canadian so this layout will not be eligible to be considered for publication. So... I guess I will have try to do another before the month is up!

The newest subject!

I have a new scrapbooking subject. I won't lie - he is totally adorable and will be the star of many layouts. He is my new little baby - Reeve. Our family is so proud of our newest edition, Reeve Walker Parent. He was welcomed on July 27th at 8:27 at a good size of 7 lbs 10 oz and 19 1/2 inches.

This picture captured the only time we have ever heard him cry... (why are you laughing - haven't you heard of those babies that never cry, sleep through the night and are completely potty trained when you bring them home? That is what I had - I swear!)

After that it was peace... 

 And quiet...

 Till we got home and thought we might try to have a family picture... 
Take 1

 Take 2

 Take 3

 And here is where my cousin Cody helped out... 
Take 4

Life will never be the same... And I LOVE it!
