LCTS- Sketch #152 reveal

Good morning!

Today is a very special day.  It's our wedding anniversary.  As of today, I've been married to the love of my life and best friend for 11 years.  Sometimes it feels like it was only yesterday, sometimes I feel like I've known him forever.   So a great big HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!  to my very loving and supportive husband, Love you!!!

Here we are during our trip to NYC last month using some new Bo Bunny 

OK, enough with the sap :)   I'm here today to share with you this week's reveal wich I was a part of over at Let's Capture These Sketches.  It's sketch # 152, and it's absolutly gorgeous!

 And here is my take on the sketch.  I decided to try a Manhattan while in Manhattan.  Just not for me, lol.   I used CTMH's Avonlea collection : the paper pack, and the stickers.  Added a few pearls and finished it off with the canvas alphas.  LOVE those alphas from CTMH also! 

Here is a layout i did using  Creative scrapper's sketch # 225.  It sure was foggy on Marianne's first day of school! 

And this last layout I used a sketch using CTMH's Jeannette Lynton's new sketch book : Make it from the heart.  If you loved Magic, Imagine and the  other sketch books she published, you are going to love the new fomat and gorgeous new sketches included in this book.
For this fun layout, I used Simple Stories Summer fresh kit.

Well that's it for today.  Hope you all have a great long weekend and see you soon!

Does anyone know where September went?  I think I missed it.  It sure went by fast.  We celebrated a milestone this month with Zoé starting school.  As we expected, she loves it.  I really enjoy the play by play I get a soon as she steps out of the bus.  Hope she continues to love school as much when she's older.  Marianne entered grade 4!  They sure are growing up fast.

I had the chance to catch up on my scrapbooking this weekend as I attended LCOM's crop.  What an amazing time spent laughing, talking and creating with a bunch of very talented, awesome ladies.  I came equipped with my Sketches provided by Creative Scrappers and Lets Capture These Sketches and a car full of supplies.

Here are some lyout I had done before the crop :

This first one is of Zoé's first day of Kindergarten.  I used CTMH's new scholastic line.  This is actually my September kit of the month layout.  I still have a few available.

This layout I made last a couple of weeks ago when I was having a down day.  Had myself some scrapbooking therapy session and it changed my mood.  I used CTMH's new Flirty line to make it.

This layout was made using Let's capture these sketches Sketch # 148  and pictures of our August trip to NYC
 Here is my take on sketch #146 over at Let's capture these sketches.  I used some Basic Grey paper that seemed perfect to represent the NYC skyline we saw On top of the Rock.  Love the My Little Bit of Whimsy button I added too.
 Here is my take on Sketch # 150 over at Let's Capture These Sketches.   I just love Authentique paper.  I used the Delightfull paper collection on this one with some Webster's Pages trim and Prima flowers.
 The last two layout are scraplifted from the CTMH Autumn/Winter Idea book.  I changed them a bit. The first one is from page 50 using the flirty collection.
 The second one is from the Avonlea collection as seen on the cover of the idea book

That's it for now.  Hope you have a wonderful day!  See you soon :)
