23rd November - Daily Routine

Hey, everyone!  What does your normal day look like?  Today's challenge is all about scrapping your daily routine.  Your daily routine may not seem exciting or scrap-worthy, but we have a feeling that you'll appreciate the fact that you scrapped the "little moments" in a few years...

Here is our design team's take on the challenge:

I use a curling iron every morning. Brown curls tumbled down over my shoulders.
So beautiful! I love my hair style ♡


My morning routine: get out of bed, put the kettle on, take the dog out while I walk to pick up the news paper. News on digital medias is not the same as a real piece of paper!

Many of you already know that I'm a homeschool mom, so the biggest part of my daily routine is helping my kiddos through their studies.  Yes, it's challenging; but the rewards are endless, and we wouldn't have it any other way.  I couldn't help but dive into my October Jenni Bowlin kit one more time before opening my November box.  Most of the products used here come from just such with a few extras thrown in to finish things off.

For this challenge I focused on my normal weekend routine.  I work pretty long days, so I thought it would be more fun to focus on my weekends...

I went at this challenge from a bit of a different angle. I decided to use a "everyday moment" kind of photo and use my journaling to talk about how much I love those normal, routine, every day kind of moments.


Thursday, my favorite day of the week!

9th November - Sketch

Today it is time for another lovely sketch that Valerie as created for us. This time she took inspiration from Tessa's August Mood board layout. What a great sketch to get your inspiration going!


In the last couple of months I discovered the joy of cooking. Before that, cooking was stressing and something I avoided as much as I could. But now it's totally different, I love learning, experimenting... and enjoying the final result. So I decided to use the photo of the first dish that made me proud (yes, I am such a novice!)


My FIL passed away in July. He didn't want a grave with a tomstone, so we applied the authorities for permission to spread his ashes into the sea, Permission was obtained and in late september we spread his ashes. We live at the seaside so every time we look at the window we are reminded of him

I had so much fun making this sketch my own with a happy combination of papers and embellishments and lots and lots and lots of die-cutting.

This sketch was too much fun.  I really love everyone's take on it.  I stuck pretty close to the sketch - just added in some layers and moved my corner accent to the other side.

A picture inspired by a trip we took to the south where we bought our first plants for our garden. Pure love, pure joy. I love this selfie, even more because my husband has it on his work desk.

I loved this sketch! The big square was a good anchor for the page. I chose to use strips of patterned paper to build the square. I folded and distressed the strips a bit for dimension. In the end, I was very happy with my layout. 

Since my original layout was about my daughter, I decided to make this layout about my youngest son. I had a lot of fun reinterpreting my design with masculine papers and embellishments.

Earlier this year. I went on a travel to LA. Blue sky, cool breezes, brilliant sunshine...My fingers were embellished with shiny nail art. I was very excited this day.

It was a fun sketch and I love it!! Instead of the small circles I made a bigger one with blue mist!! This is a clean and simple layout with my son George and I used some colourful embellishments!!My title is number ten... cause my son has 10 great reason to love summer... and his glasses are the 10th reason... He loves to wear them ...So this is my page:

The design team did a great job again with lots of ways of using the sketch, hope they have inspired you! You have until 7th December to link up your layouts to the side bar.
Happy Scrapping!
