Paper Re-Organized!

my OCD kicked into high this week forcing me to re-organize all my printed paper & cardstock collection. Here we begin with holidays (Wedding, cut off but on far left; Christmas; Halloween; Valentine's) and on to my Making memories collections over to Cosmo Cricket, ki, and Pebbles. In the next cube, I have 5 folders worth of Basic Grey (apparently I have a BG problem), the a BUNCH of Fancy Pants, 3 folders of My Mind's Eye... next picture please
continuing on from MME are a couple of folders worth of outdoors/woods/camping papers, onto Pebbles (for little boys) and sports sharing one folder, the Kidz & animal prints sharing the next, DCWV Textures&Finishes along with Downtown Loft together, Pink Paisley & Bo Bunny are shacked up in one, Rock Star from DCWV, then my Teen folder containing a bit of WeRMemoryKeepers with BoBunny and Crate paper, the last 6 folders show are monthly kits from Scarlet Lime (they were a bit girly for me and with two boys, girly is hard to use up), next picture please...
first folder here is a monthly kit from Swirlydos (red, black & music I can always use more of), and the last monthly kit I purchased was all green & blue but I can't remeber who I bought it from; the next 3 large folders are all my CTMH papers, then on to a folder for each: Colonial White, Daisy White & Black, final picture...
TADA! Cardstock all in their little color coded folders
yep, I have a bit of a problem & probably need to stop buying paper.... uuu, that's just not gonna happen so I better buy more folders!

SketchMania#22 & #23

I SCAPPED!! No, you say... but Yes, I did! I didn't exactly combine the combos but made them into a two-page layout.
While I did use my Cricut E with my Gypsy & Sports Mania cartridge, I hand-cut, paper-pieced & sewed the hat & the ball glove... so much work but I love how they turned out!

Falling 4 U.... SketchMania#20

I gotta confess, this week's SketchMania#20 from umWowStudios was difficult for me; I had no clue what to do until I just made myself sit down & do it. But I'm VERY happy with the results
My Creation:
Journaling (or what I call journaling, lol)
The Details:
The Sketch:
Products Used: Printed Paper & brown letters-Fancy Pants Hot Chocolate; Blue Leaf-Making Memories Autumn Splendor; 4, pearls & all ink-CTMH; GrungeBoard-Tim Holtz Swirls; Yellow Ribbon-Making Memories 5th Avenue; brown & blue ribbons-Hobby Lobby;Javq Walnut Ink; yellow u-MyLittleShoebox


Our families will be here for Thanksgiving so I wanted to make a little change, these use to have photos or art we'd each one on one of these (one for each of us) but that was looking a little messy and we just weren't updating it very often. I saw someone on Crop Chocolate do something similar....

I really liked this week's Friday Sketchers Sketch #128, something about it just screamed "You gotta give this one a try!" so I did and I made 3 cards, all just a bit different but I only took pictures of this one as it's my favorite:
