Happy Father's Day!

Hello my scrappy friends!  Happy Father's Day to all of the dad's out there today!  I hope you are able to spend time with the dad's in your life.  I'll be spending today with my husband and children at home, doing laundry like most Sundays, and ordering some pizza, per his request!  We are a pretty easy, laid back kinda people!

Here is the card I made for my husband, using my Cricut Groovy Times cartridge.  Love all of the cute cuts on this one!

I'll be entering this card into the following blog challenges:

Climbing the Chair - Stick It Down Guest Desginer

Hello my scrappy friends!  I was recently asked to be a guest designer for the double layout sketch on the Stick It Down blog!  What an honor!!  Of course, I took it on and love what I created!

I used papers from my stash, some inks splattered around and the stamps and die cuts of the sea animals are from CTMH from years ago.  Amazing what you can find when you look through all of your stash!

Take a look at the blog, Stick It Down,  for not just the double page sketch but also the single page and card sketches!  They are fantastic this month! 

Have a lovely day!

14th year

Hello again my scrappy friends!  A (sort of) sad card for me...made for my daughter's 14th birthday.  How can she be 14 already?  It's going way tooooo fast!  We are blessed that she is a good girl, a good person always trying to help others when she can, a great student...her lowest grade is a 96, and does her chores when I only have to ask three or four times!  Guess you have to take the good with some of the could be worse, this I know!

Here is one of her cards.  Her birthday is tomorrow but her family party is later this month...there'll be another card for that!

I'll be entering my card into the challenge Kat Scrappiness Blog is hosting this weekend!

Also entering into Stick It Down card sketch....I've definitely used some creative license!  I did add the heart and alphas...the sketch full of letters was my inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!  Have a great night!

Running Studs

Hello once again my scrappy friends!  I just completed a layout I began yesterday.  This one is of my brother-in-law and my son running a 5k in our development years ago.  My husband was one of the events organizers so he couldn't run with our son.  I did the walk with our daughter, my sister and aunt. 

I'll be entering this into Sketches In Thyme #321 challenge.  This was a great sketch with which to work!
Sketches In ThymeI'm also entering the Use Your Stuff blog challenge.  It's a free week so go for it!!  The "stuff" I used for this LO are the enamel dots.  I have a few, ok several, and just never remember to use them!Use Your Stuff


Thanks for visiting and commenting!

Remember, just be you!

Hello my scrappy friends!  I'm home from a weekend full of layouts and laughs.  As usual, I packed too much and didn't create as much as I wanted but I had a great time! 

One layout I did create is for Sketches in Thyme challenge #322.  Pictures are of my kids playing in the backyard with some friends a few years ago.  I loved being able to use so many scraps of bright, fun papers!
