Good Morning All!
My BFF, Colleen and I have decided to challenge each other
by creating a weekly challenge. They just happened to be due Wednesdays'.
For my challenge week I decided to use a sketch I found on Pinterest.
First, I will show you pictures of what I created and then have the picture of the sketch!

I used the Alphabet border from Fiskars.
I used the "School Days" stamp set from CardzTV.
My banner is from My Creative Time die kit.
I added some hemp cord for my bows on the banner.
My title is alphabet foam stickers.
The paper pack that I used is DCWV "My Sunshine Stack"

Wishing you TONS of fun!!

Good Afternoon Folks!
I found this shape in the Silhouette Studio
and just had to make a card with it.
My elephant image is from www.svgcuttingfiles.com
and I took the glasses  from the Chickadees
file and added it to my elephant.
I had so much fun adding glasses to him.
Both of my children and myself wear glasses so
I think it's only fair to add glasses to my SVGs, don't you?
This adorable sentiment is from Joy's Life "Punny Animals"
set that you can get over at www.joyslife.com or just click HERE.

 In the images below I added glossy accents to
make the glasses appear real.
For some reason I ended up with "bubbles"
and I have no idea how they got there or how to get rid of them.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

"Take Flight" Scrapbook Page

Good Morning Everyone!!
Today I am sharing my last design team project for
KaDoodle Bug Designs.
It was a great pleasure working with Melissa and her team.
I used the "Air Force Penguin" file that can be found here at KaDoodle Bug Designs.
The file is created by Peek A Boo deisgns and
converted into a cutting file by KaDoodle Bug Designs.
My idea for this layout is to use a few pictures of my son and stepson, which I have misplaced at the moment, of the very first flight we took to Florida.

Thanks for stopping by and

I was so excited... I wet my plants! card

Good Morning Folks!!
When I saw the release for the April SKOM for Peachy Keen Stamps I couldn't wait to get it!! This sentiment alone is worth the $29.95.  You can purchase yours HERE.
I also used the SVG file to cut and then stamp the image onto my white cardstock. I used copic markers to color them all in. (I am still practicing) Then added PK-570 Basic Paper Doll faces to the flowers.
 I finished the card off by adding a few dew drops as my water.
Reminder for some of my blog newbies I have a Facebook page
where I post all my creations as well. (Usually days before my blog)
You can find it HERE!

Tower of Pizza Scrapbook Layout

Hello Everybody!!
My best friend Colleen and I decided to start doing some scrapbooking challenges between the two of us. We needed a little motivation to get our scrapbooking done and to use those paper piecing files we bought and still haven't used. We always seem to get sidetracked with talking, Facebook and Pinterest so what better way to help each other out??
The challenge was to make a layout using a paper piecing file that we have previously purchased from Treasure Box Designs.
My layout was made uisng the "Pizza Collection".
Now the story behind this layout. We usually order pizza a few times a month. Of course not everyone likes the same thing so we usually get a few different ones. Mikayla just likes cheese, her dad likes saugage and pepperoni or meat lovers, and the boys, Austin and Nick and I love taco pizza. Our taco pizza comes with black olives and since we were finished Mikayla asked if she could eat the rest of them, and since we cannot reheat this type of pizza I said that she could. I walked away to clean up and take the other box to the garbage and when I came back in she was playing in it and creating her own "Tower of Pizza".

Thanks for stopping by and until next time.....

Orignal idea......from Sketch Support

Girly Girl Scrapbook Layout

Good morning crafters!!
Today I am showing you a double page layout I did of my daughter putting make-up on me!! I was pretty scared of what I would look like at the end, but lo and behold she did a fine job!! Maybe she'll be a stylist for the rich and famous when she grows up!
I used the "Girly Girl" and "Fun Borders 2" file from www.designsoncloud9.com and how fun it was. This layout was inspired by the Backgrounds and Borders challenge she had at the beginning of this month. And the best part about it was everyone that joined in got a free file of their choice whether you won or not. To me there is no excuse in the book to not create something!!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Until next time.....
