Color Time

Hello and good morning...

I'm gearing up for the long holiday weekend, the kids get both Friday and Monday off which will be a nice break. Today Austin get's out early so we're going to get some sushi lunch together, I'm super excited.

Up on the Scrapbook Circle and Fancy Pants blog is the same sketch. I used my April kit, which has a ton of Fancy Pants As You Wish line in it, and I am sooo in love with it..

Here's my take on it, I flipped it on it's side. The photo is of my lil one coloring- its been her new favorite activitiy:

I added a chevron strip and then fussy cut out a few pieces and popped them up:

then added lots of circles and a tag to journal on:

Here's the sketch:

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!

April All Year Cheer Card Kit Reveal

Hello and good morning...

Happy Survivor Day!!!! totally looking forward to what happens tonight on the show.. Sadly, several of our regular shows have ended or on a break till the new season, so there's been very little to look forward to on the tele.. I guess that can be a good thing right.. (maybe I'll read more.. LOL)

Well I have my reveal using the April All Years Cheer Card kit from Apron Strings...
I honestly LOVED everything in this amazing kit.. the papers ROCKED!!! and I felt like I could just keep making cards... and there are always more than enough embellies packed inside. This month's kit used Studio Calico, Lilybee and Basic Gray papers...

Here's what I came up, first using the Studio Calico papers:



Using Basic Gray, I came up with these:



and one of the two LilyBee cards I created, the other one I will post later with a tutorial.


So I have to say, this is one amazing kit!!!!!! Make sure to check out the Apron Strings store, she has layout kits and other goodies to pick up too...

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!!

Remember.. One and Only

Hello and good evening...

Hope ya had a great day... Tuesdays are always our super insane day- both kids have sports practice, both kids have church youth activities and trying to fit dinner and homework in there too..

Up on the Sketches In Thyme blog is a new monthly sketch to play along with..
I can up with this page of me and my hottie while we were in Hawaii, after swimming at the waterfall.

I used some Elle's Studio on my page--- pretty much of all it, minus the mist and enamels
I'm also linking up with Frosted Designs Friday challenge- use your own handwriting (which I always do) and inks... what a cool combo!!!
I inked my word piece pink to match more:

and fussy cut the doilys and added some stitching:

Here is the April sketch:

Hope ya play along...

Have a great night!!!!

Eat Cake

Hello and good morning...

I'm up over on the My Scraps & More blog today...

One thing that I never seem to run out of, or scrap all of is.... birthday photos.. If you are like me, you take a TON of birthday pictures- from the cake, to the present opening, just the birthday person, and even at their meals.. LOL... there's just no way to scrap them all.

I finally printed off some pics of my little one from her second birthday and am trying to attack getting them scrapped. The Jillibean Birthday Bisque line is perfect to get those photos on the page.

I added some misting with my stencil at the top and bottom of the page, and then added some enamel dots in the holes punched:

I also used a Jillbean mini placemat and then colored in the number TWO to highlight her birthday number:

So don't let those birthday photos sit any longer.. get them scrapped!!!

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!

U Rock R World

Hello and good afternoon...

Hope you are getting some unwinding and relaxing time in this weekend.. 

Here's a page of our lil cutie- reading her books and trying on the older kids 4wheeler helmet, a couple of random Instagram pics that I printed off to scrap. I think that has been my new fave thing to scrap- my Instagrams, I LOVE the 4x4 size.

I used some Elle's Studios on my page, and added some border punching and stitching:

and these wooden arrows have to got to be a new fave:

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!!!

Happy Saturday and Happy Weekend!!!! weekends are always a good thing and I will be at the track with my daughter's first track meet, I'm sooo excited to see her run.

Speaking of sports, here is sports page of my son from last season fall ball.

I used some Elle's Studio on my page and played along with the Craft Hoarders challenge #5 to use a stamp..something I totally dont do enough, so I wanted to make sure I took the challenge and played along.
I used a star stamp:

Of course a little some misting and enamel dots.. a bit of stitching on my title and a lil doodling- something I haven't done in awhile.

I used a sketch from the My Scraps & More sketch a thon going on.
I'm also linking up with Paper Issues Pocket of Sunshine- I added a flair piece to my layout
