Us - Frosted Designs Sketch 33 - LOAD

This is #30 and #31 for my LOAD (LayOut A Day)!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!  I completed my goal! I am participating in the LOAD for January over at Let's Scrap. I didn't think there was anyway I would even get close to 31 layouts this month with a new 4-1/2 month old baby....but I did! My hubby helped a lot and my baby has become the perfect baby this month. She goes to sleep at 6:30pm and sleeps until at least 5 or 5:30am so I've been getting in layouts in the evening after she is asleep. I've also been able to scrap quite a bit on the weekends as my hubby is soooo good and really entertains/plays with her a lot. This week was harder as I worked 15 hour days almost all week on top of everything, so I am VERY proud of myself. This was a GREAT challenge and one I've always wanted to try. 

Here is my layout:

I used the Frosted Designs - Sketch along Tuesdays Sketch #33 for the left side of my layout and rotated it 90 degrees. Here is the sketch:

I also used Frosted Designs - Fabulous Friday Challenge - Recipe for this week. The recipe was to use 3 Patterned Papers, 2 Buttons, and a 1 word title. I used this challenge also for the left side of my layout.

I also used another challenge that I read on someone's blog or posting, but completely lost it.  It was to mix 3 different manufacture's and 3 different papers.  If anyone knows where this challenge was posted, I would love to know! LOL

The right side was based on a layout on page 96 of the Feb 2012 issue of scrapbooks ets.

Here are some detailed photos:

Materials used: papers - Bo Bunny Welcome Home, MME Apron Dots; tag - Bo Bunny Welcome Home; Rub-ons - Heidi Swapp (NOT impressed with these fuzzy rubons they didn't work at all and I'm going to throw the rest of the pack away!); ribbon - unknown; rick rack - Wrights; buttons - CTMH; journaling block - KI Memories; overlay - De'ja' Views.

Thanks for visiting me!
