First Day of School - 2014

Hello my scrappy friends!  Yesterday the house was clean, we had plenty of leftovers for lunch and dinner and just a bit of laundry needed to be I started a two page layout, finished it this morning!  I started with lots of spray inks, regular inks, smooching inked paper, then covered most of it!  So I added a few more ink spots, not sure I like it all but it's two pages completed!

This was the first day of school in 2014 when my son was entering 6th grade and my daughter into 5th grade.  Two different schools, two different bus times for pick up!  Both of these pages were inspired by several different challenges.

another freaking scrappy challenge ...Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - use circles...on my 2nd page.

Sketches In ThymeSketches in Thyme - #288 - my first page

Sketches in Thyme - #290 - my second page...very loosely based but it started as my inspiration!

Hello my scrappy friends!  My niece's 8th birthday party is tomorrow so of course a card had to be made!  I used SU! Cool Treats for the sentiment and ice cream cones.  The streamers on the inside panel are from SU! Balloon Adventures.

The color combinations were fun to use!  The ice creams are Flirty Flamingo/Watermelon Wonder - Pool party/Bermuda Bay - Peekaboo Peach/Calypso Coral and the cones are Tip Top Taupe/Early Espresso.

This card is entered into these challeges:

Tulip card

Hello my scrappy friends!  Quick post this evening since I'm tired.  House is clean, ready for my son's 15th family birthday party on Saturday. did that happen?!?

This card is for a friend who lost her husband last month.  I want to make her and her teenage daughter a card each month for a while, just so they know that someone is always thinking of them.

I used my SU! Tranquil Tulips stamps set for the tulips (obviously!), Avant-Garden for the dots all around the card, and Orange Blossom for the sentiment...the entire sentiment reads "out of sight....but never our of mind".

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Paper Play Sketches 
Paper Play Sketches: Color Challenge  -- Green and purple for the stems and flowers, yellow/orange for the dots all around the card.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge
Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge: #224 sketch -- Loosely based on this sort of got away from me but this sketch inspired me to make this card.
