Welcome to the CKCBMembers Blog Hop .

Challenge #1: Jewelry Challenge

Challenge 1: Jewelry Challenge:  Use a piece of YOUR jewelry for inspiration!  Tell it's story...use it's design...and make sure to show us a photo of your inspiration, too!

When I saw this challenge I knew immediately the piece of jewelry I would do the layout with. My mom always had this locket in her jewelry box ,about once a year she would pull it out and show me .We would just talk mother and  daughter time. Especially important be I have six siblings time was precious . After I was married and about to move away. She gave this to me to remember, and I do.This locket has a mustard seed in the front with the bible verse Matthew 17:20 on the back . for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed,  nothing shall be impossible unto you.
 Yes it is small less than an 1/2 inch wide.Where the seed is the background is light blue . This picture is my favorite of my mom her dress is the same light blue as the seed. It is  when she graduated from high School. I made a copy of the photo on acetate  then back with pearl vellum. 

here is a closer look at the back 

Hope you enjoyed next on the hop is 
Happy Hopping!

CkCC layout one

I finally did a layout .I really like my kit this month. I have more layout planned. This is my daughter Sarah and Jason .I love they they bought a tandem bike to ride. I love bright colors for Sarah and flags lol. When I was cropping the photo I notice the middle flag was pointing up. Figures after all it is a picture with Sarah.

PS if this layout looks familiar well it is, apparently this is a preferred layout when I do Sarah.

CKC Challenge #3

This challenge is all about grids.  I started to do a monthly layout for my grandson , I pick one moment in the month and scrap it with journaling. I decided to do it based loosely on project life . So I bought packet pages and got started. But from the beginning I knew I wanted full layout too. So I do every other page  pocket then full page. Best of both worlds. Until you want a full layout so I decided to make a full layout then cut the page apart to fit the pocket page. By having guidelines I have  no problem cutting .

I wasn't sure if I could use a pocket page for the grid challenge so I made a full page layout and then cut it apart .
 My inspiration:

Now cut for pocket page:
