Let's go to the Rodeo!

Hello my scrappy friends!  

Close to our home is the oldest weekly rodeo in the country!  We've been there a few times and it's such an enjoyable night out for the family.  I recently scrapped a few pictures I took on our first trip there in 2011.  My kids looked so young and small!

I'm entering this layout into... 

Frosted Designs Splatter challenge.  I used blue and orange spray inks for splatters, blue ink for the circle stamps on the bottom of the page and blue/green ink for the circles on the right side of the LO. 

Lasting Memories challenge #236 Travel Destination. They also provided the sketch as a twist...but I loved this twist since I loved the sketch!  I tried using a new template for the dangling circles.  Obviously the look isn't the same and I really don't like the way it turned out, but I tried something new.  I'll keep trying!

Hope you are enjoying the weekend!
Thanks for stopping by~

Hello my scrappy friends and Happy Easter to you and your family!  We are going to my sisters for dinner, dessert and games on Sunday.  At I don't have to cook and clean :)  My grandma is 96 years old and doesn't come out for holidays any longer.  The days are just too long and tiring for her so I made her a card.  Of course, she won't get it until after Easter.  I've lost track of what day it is considering we've had off since Wednesday!  The kids and I have been quite busy...entertaining several friends, bathing suit and summer clothes shopping, food shopping, assembling a brand new patio set, entertaining more friends for my daughter with a sleep over that started at 7pm Thursday night and just's 5pm Friday night and my son's friend was here from 6am till 4pm!  I cleaned up as they played and ate!

My card for grandma.  I love the way it came out.  I was inspired by a two challenge blogs....

 STAMPlorations' new challenge...CASEplorations.  Here is the card we are to lift or CASE this month...

Off the Rails Scrapbooking is a blog that is very new to me!  It's a wonderful challenge blog with such talented women on the DT.  This months challenge gives us two different mood boards to use in our creations.  I chose the second board using the colors white, black and green.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments! 

Luke 23:34  Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. .

Mark 10:34 - And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.
