Hello again, readers, and welcome to another Challenge Thursday! We love to challenge our readers here on the blog. Our goal is to inspire and encourage you to complete more pages! So this week, we're bringing you - my favorite - a template challenge! This week, I decided to take some inspiration from one of Trixie Scraps' template collections, Bursting with Photos. Take a look.





































Here is the template I created for this challenge and the layout I have completed:

Wednesday Wisdom

0 comments
Welcome to another Wednesday Wisdom post here on the Trixie Scraps blog. We're glad you joined us today.

Today's quote is this:

"It used to be that I could look at you and see traces of the baby you once were. Now I look at you and instead catch glimpses of the man you will become."

I ran across this quote a few years ago and it hasn't left my head since. It happened at a time when my oldest son was suddenly growing up. I found myself looking at him one day and realized the above statement was true. One day he was still a little guy and the very next I was seeing him as a grown man. As the years pass by this quote grows even more true. I chose to scrapbook our latest family pictures of just him and pair it with this quote.

Is there a boy in your life who seems to be growing up too fast? Scrap a page about him using this quote and share it in our gallery.

Masters Monday: It's All About You

0 comments
Welcome to another Monday on the Trixie Scraps blog. I hope your weekend was a good one.

If you're anything like me, you are usually behind the camera instead of in front of it. And if you do happen to be in front of the camera, you are probably surrounded by other people. Today, I want to switch our focus - at least just once in awhile.

You are a huge part of your own life, why not document that? Today I'm going to share with you a few ways to do that.


I decided I'd start with my newest layout, made specifically for this post. Make a layout about some of your beliefs. I sort of cheated with this one and used lyrics from a song - but I made sure to highlight the statements I strongly agree with.


Layout was made using pieces from Just One Kiss.

Another way to make your layouts about you is why you have the name, nickname, etc. that you do. I did another post on this a while ago and you can read that here. If there isn't a reason for your name, maybe you can do a layout on if you like your name or not and why.

Everyone has hard times and when you're going through those times, you may not want to share those moments. When all is said and done, though - I've found it can be helpful to share those stories.


Layout made using Everybody Fights Sometimes

Are there things about yourself you've had to learn to love? Share those stories!

Layout made using Got Glasses.
What about overcoming obstacles? Obstacles come in so many forms and I love Carrin's page about overcoming what other people think.

Layout made using Got Glasses

Finally, let's not forget about our hobbies and our some of our favorite things. These are important things people need to know about you. You know yourself and what you enjoy, but will people down the line who might see your pages know this?

I shared the way I got into reading:

Layout made using the kit Take Me Away.

And Jennifer went to town on sharing a few of her favorite tv shows in her layout:

Layout made using All About Me: The Littles

I hope I've inspired you to make more of your layouts All About You. Be a presence in your own life. And if you're brave enough, please share yourself with us in our gallery.

Special Request Sunday

0 comments
It seems like it's been FOREVER since our last Special Request Sunday. I guess that's because we did it at the very end of August.

Last months question was what you loved most about Fall.

Robin was our only participant and I absolutely love the way she paints a picture of Fall. In her words: "I love the gorgeous colors of Fall. It's my favorite time of the year to get out and take pictures. The air is crisp and smells wonderful and the colors are so amazing."

The kit Robin requested was All About Me: The Tweens.
Robin, to help us get your kit to you, please send us a help ticket here. Make sure you include your email address along with a note stating that you won the Special Request Sunday prize for October 2014.

November is a crazy, busy month for my family. Both my husband and I celebrate a birthday, we also celebrate our anniversary and I have three nephews and one niece with birthdays. However, the best part of November for me is Thanksgiving. It has very little to do with the food and so much more to do with family. I love that it's the start of a season full of family. I am blessed to be surrounded by so much family. I'm especially thankful that because of where my husband's family has Thanksgiving and where my family does, we are able to see both families on Thanksgiving.

So my question for you is, what are you going to be most thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Let us know and you just may get your own free kit.

Make sure you include your email address as well as the name of the kit you'd like, if you win, in your comment.
