Happy Birthday Dad

I made this card for dad's birthday using the Stuck on U Sketches Card Challenge!

Baby You're a Firework!

This layout I used a sketch from Stuck On U Sketches... I used Authentique Glory collection...It is a fairly flat layout, for me!!!

There is a hidden journalling tag on the left behind the photo...I love this vintage distressed Authentique line for the 4th of July, just up my alley! I cut out one of the quilted heart clusters and made it into a flower embelishment...

Thanks for looking!!

Sweet Beyond Words!

This layout has a cute photo of the girls at a local ice cream parlor called Goody's here in Bend!

I used the awesome Scraps of Darkness July kit Carta Bella papers and flowers to make this layout and their sketch...

I am also entering the Bird is the Word BEYOND challenge with this layout...

Reaching New Heights

I took this photo here in Bend, the girls are having a great time at the park climbing trees :)

I used the Scrap Africa sketch and turned it on its side!!

I am also adding this to the REACH word challenge at Bird is the Word!!

I used C'est Magnifique's beautiful August kit with Maja Designs Vintage Summer papers and wonderful embellies and flowers to make this. If you love international companies like Maja Designs, Scrap Cake, 7 Dots, Riddersholm...Pion...check out this awesome club, Leslie makes some wonderful kits and addons!

I used the Once Upon a Sketch sketch for this layout and am using the word GROW in my layout as part of the C'est Magnifique challenge!! I have used the July kit featuring Inkido papers from C'est Magnifique to do this layout as well...and I think I can do at least one more if not two from this kit!!

I also still love the flower tag for some fun hidden journalling so I did it again!! I'm also going to enter this for the Stuck on You Sketches Die Cut challenge this week, my first time playing! Since I am away from home at my parents house I had to use a Follow Your Heart store bought die cut layered creative tag is one that becomes part of the flower cluster when tucked in!!  That pearl embellishment on the left of the flower cluster in the full LO photo, I picked that up today at a thrift store for 25 cents! Score!!

C'est Magnifique July Sketch Challenge

Hello from America!! I have been doing a lot of shopping, mostly for punches at Michaels with my 50 percent coupons and for trims and laces at yard sales!! My kit clubs I continue to receive while I am here so am not really stocking up on paper...

Here is the layout that I did for the C'est Magnifique challenge... I used the Teresa Collins papers in my July kit and some lovely soft Inkido papers... I love all the flowers and embellies included in the addons!

I wanted to add some hidden journalling so I attached a flower to the tag to make it part of the layout!!

I have been having fun taking kids swimming, to visit friends, out to parks...library crafting and story times...they have made great friends with the boys next door and are out with them playing often. We have plans for Children's Festivals and County Fairs and river floating trips...and of course, some more scrapping!!
