All Packed Up...Or Moving Out??

I am always surprised by how much "stuff" I have when I pack for a crop.  It doesn't seem like it when everything is put away in it's place.  I have been paring down my scrapping supplies over the last several months...but you wouldn't know it from these pictures:

That's me...all packed up!!  I tried making page kits one time, but got so excited with the way the layouts were going to look that I just ended up finishing!!  Now I have to finish the laundry so my clothes will be all ready to go by Wednesday night!!

As I checked my favorite blogs during the week, there were two challenges I wanted to try before leaving.  One was a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays and the other was a color challenge from Scrap Whispers.  The challenge was to make a layout completely blue.  That is a HUGE challenge for me since we are very girly in this house.  As I was looking for pictures that I could scrap in blue, I found these two older pics of Abbie from when she was about 2 or so.  Her jammies had a little blue in them so I thought I would use those.  And I decided to use the sketch too since it called for 2 pics and that's all I had.  Here is the sketch:

And here is the layout I made:
I used Bazzill cardstock for the background.  The patterned papers are from Fancy Pants Designs and Crate Paper.  The letters are Thickers and I covered them in Ranger Stickles.  The silver rub-ons on the left side of the page are from Pink Paislee.  I used a Fiskars punch for the striped paper and a Martha Stewart punch for the long border on the right side. 

Well, there you have it.  Enjoy!!
