Alert the presses, I scrapped a layout.  It has been so long.  My husband was in his glory when we recently visited Gettysburg while on vacation in PA.  I made this using Creative Scrappers Sketch and for the Paper Issues Admit One  My ticket is tucked up under the title.  I used almost exclusively Fancy Pants products as they are sponsoring the Paper Issues challenge.  Hope you have a chance to play along with both of these challenges.

Thanks a Bunch SRM Challenge

We had a wonderful weekend two weeks ago at a family reunion and I made this card to thank our host and hostess for such a fabulous time.  I was inspired by the color and sketch challenge, which I flipped on it's side.  I love playing with SRM Stickers.  So much fun.  You can play along with this month's challenge here.

It's Your Day to Eat Cake

 My nephew's birthday was early June and he loves boats.  The 3D boat is two pieces and I put his check inside.  I love everything red, white and blue and love how much the twine makes everything pop on this card and boat.  Thanks for looking and be sure to check out The Twinery store for these awesome colors and more.  They give the perfect touch to any project.
