I received this layout in a swap on SCS. The swap requirements were to use your Sizziz, Big Shot or Cuttlebug and it was made by madcrazy. I like to put a lot of pictures on my layouts. Ususally I can move embellishments or photomats around. Luckily I was able to move some of the trees and the journal box around to get all of my pictures on! It's nice to just be able to slap your pictures on a layout that's already made.

Critter Sketch Challenge #24

Here is another Critter Sketch Challenge!  This is the last week to play in July for a chance to win some cute digi images! This months sponsor is Robyn's Fetish. I made my card using two of her cute images! This time I tried using my daughter's Prismacolor pencils. I think I like my Copics better. Oh well, you live and learn!

Mickey & Friend

Whoo hoo, two posts in one day! Here is a little scrap layout I made using a sketch from Mojo Monday 148. I thought this was a great sketch for a one page scrap layout. This also works for the Crazy4Challenges C4C45 - Red, black and white.

Christmas in July

This week over at Critter Sketch Challenge it is Christmas in July! Not only is it Christmas in July but there is a cute sketch to go along with this weeks challenge as well as a new sponsor, Robyn's Fetish.  Play along every week for a chance to win some cute digi designs!

I decided to play along, too. I made a scrap layout of some Christmas pictures on a trip to see the National Christmas Tree. I thought the sketch would make a cool layout. I also used my favorite paper, Basic Grey!

In additional to the Critter Sketch Challenge, I am entering this in the Pixie Dust Studio Challenge #31 -colors forest green, cranberry and ivory, Creative Prompts for You #24 - Christmas in July

Recessed Window Card

The blog group I am in had a little challenge. The lovely Marsha wanted us to make a recessed window card. Although the actual recessed-window-card-part wasn't too difficult to do, the actual direction the card took was! I am not too happy with the card and how it came out (it looks way better in the photo LOL). I used Basic Grey's Two Scoops paper with a little Pink Bubblegum Glimmer Mist (can't quite get the hang of not getting a few blobs spraying out). I popped the little Penny Black Hedgie (I just love those hedgies).  I am also entering it in the following challenges:

Crafty Calendar - #10 Summer
Scrap-Creations - #18 Summer using Basic Grey
Allsorts Penny Black - A Burst of Summer Colour
One Stop Craft  - Monochromatic

Critter Sketch Challenge #22

Hello and happy Monday! It is time for Critter Sketch Challenge #22 and this weeks challenge is an inspiration challenge. Also, there is a new sponsor this month, Robyn's Fetish.  Robyn's Fetish  makes some really cute digi images so make sure you check out her work! I made my card using the image Waking Up Birdie. My eye's have a hard time coloring detailed images and I can't stay in the lines (isn't that a kindergarten skill?) so don't look too closely...hahaha. Enjoy and don't forget to play along with the Critter Sketch Challenge for a change to win some free images from Robyn's Fetish.

Boys Being Boys

I made this layout for one of my SCS friends, SUBetsy. I tried to make it so she could put several photos in either direction. I hope she likes it! I am also entering this in the Critter Sketch Challenge #21 (4 stars) and the Diedrich Dare (inspiration photo challenge).

Happy July 4th!

Happy 4th of July!! I hope every one is enjoying a fun and safe July 4th weekend. I love the 4th of July, especially the fireworks. It is one of my favorite holidays.

Here is a another Basic Grey layout using the Capella line of paper. This time I used a kit from Basic Grey. The kit is so nice. It has enough paper to do one full double page layout and extra paper to make a few cards or a single page layout. If you don't like the layout in the kit, you can do something else. I love these kits!!
