TPE172 - Vintage

It's Monday and that means it's time for another TPE Challenge at
The Pink Elephant.
This week the theme is Vintage.

I designed a scrap layout using photos of my sweet Hannah. 
This is a wonderful verse and so fitting for all children, for all of us.

I also used digital paper and a few elements by Mye De Leon.

Have a wonderful day! ♥LORi

The Deconstructed Sketch - DS75

It's that time again...for another fab DS Sketch at
You can find the new sketch here at the DS Blog.

Here is my page so far...I still need to add some finishing touches, a title and some journaling, however I unexpectedly had 2 infected teeth extracted yesterday afternoon and 
boy has it knocked me on my booty.  
So I didn't get to feeling like finishing my page, but I will and then I will post it here!

Love & hugs - LORi

Stuff & TPE

Good Monday my Friends!

We added a new lil' member to our family Saturday Night. My Mom and Dad's cat had kitten about 7 weeks ago and this Little Mister is one of the 5.
Eric and I said no to getting one at first...we sure didn't need anymore pets.
The kids keep asking...won me over this past week and then Thursday night I started working on Eric.
Saturday night I ended up telling him every little girl needs a kitten (Ella has never had a pet of her own and this litter was the first time Landon, Ella, McCoy and Jussie has ever seen kittens in real life...that is sad.)  I told him to be glad he had only one little girl wanting 1 Daddy had 3 little girls and two times during my childhood he gave into 3 new kittens so that we could all 3 have one of our own.

We had names picked out:
Oliver...Elvis... Presley
even Elvis Presley

Oh can't forget Ella's pick...Honey Boo Boo...that was quickly shot down by Hannah and Landon. LOL!  Eric ended up saying I know, "Name it Grayson" He knows I like that name and since he was started to act ok about our new buddy and even went so far as to think of a name...I told the kids that we had to name him what Daddy suggested, so he feels connected to it...Hee heee!
Landon says he isn't giving up, he still wants to name him Oliver!!!
We will never know! 

As of now, please meet Mr. Grayson Elliot...

The reason I said every little girl needs a kitten...
Ella loves him and I think he is starting to love her right back!

The Pink Elephant has a new challenge's a Halloween theme.
Here are a few of my By Lori Designs Halloween-y cards:

The Deconstructed Sketch - DS74

It is once again time for another wonderful Deconstructed Sketch...this time it's DS74 and they just keep getting better and better!  Jen always designs such fun for us to work with!

I once again used the sketch to create a digi scrap layout.
I admit...I am really missing coloring up an image for a card, but right now my Copic supply is a bot dry, so I need to get a few refills.  As soon as I do that...I will definitely be 
coloring and card making again!

Here is today's sketch:

Ella's Pink Scrapbook Challenge 29

Well, I have been attempting to digi scrap for almost a year now...the end of October marks 1 year. 
I know I should be better than I am after a year, 
but whether I am good at it or not...I AM LOVING IT!!
Absolutely...LOVING digital scrapbooking!  
Not only do I get to use my mounds and mounds of photos...the designers who design digi scrap kits are awesome and the kits are too scrumptious to pass up!  
So in a nut shell...I ♥ Digi Scrappin'!! 

In an effort to create another excuse for me to design layouts...I have 
decided to bring back Ella's Pink Scrapbook at The Pink Elephant
Back in 2010 we ran scrppy challenges and I always longed to join in the I get to!!

Here is the layout I designed for our current challenge: 
(I picked up where we left off in 2010 with Challenge 29)

To create this page I used:

A photo of my sweet Ella Roo

Thrifty Finds by Mari Koegelenberg

The Sweetest Thing by Zoe Pearn

I sure hope you will all join in the scrappy fun at TPE.

We are having a Scrap DT CALL...You can read all about it HERE.

Have a super fabulous Saturday!

The Deconstructed Sketch - DS73

Today's sketch was designed by my super fabulous and talented friend, Sheri Gilson!
I didn't use it on a card (my Copics are dried up and I need to get a few refills...I'm dying to color)...I designed a digital scrap page and Baby Nealan is the star of the page!

I took this photo at the start of this summer!
He is so loved and each moment with him we cherish!
Thank You Father God for all your blessings!

I used Gennifer Bursett's Kit - Sweet Child of Mine - Boy to complete this layout. 
I love her designs & she is a sweetie!

Here is Sheri's sketch:
