Paper Issues Simple Scrapper Sketch

Alert the press, I used spritz and a mask on a project.  I have had these masks forever and never even opened the package.  I love this photo of my dear daughter who loves country music and got me to love it as much as she does.   We saw several country concerts this summer and had a ton of fun.  More country layouts to come.  Be sure to play along with Paper Issues for this awesome sketch challenge sponsored by Simple Scrapper.  Hugs,

Sunny Smiles House of Cards Sketch Challenge

This week's challenge at House of Cards is a sketch challenge and it is a really fun one.  I had so much fun playing with it and love the Pebbles Lakeside papers that I used as well as some SRM stickers.  I love how easy they are to use.  Lastly I used some Prima wood embellishments and colored them with Copics.  Be sure to check out the House of Cards challenge for Classic and Elegant cards, my fellow DT members have created beautiful cards.
Crafty Hugs,

Project Life

Dipping my toes in the water of Project Life.  Love the Becky Higgins/American Crafts lines for this venture.  Some photos just seem to lend themselves to project life which is why I decided to try it after seeing the challenge at Paper Issues. 

 Hope you have a chance to play along with us at Paper Issues.  Love their challenges.  Hugs,

Love Ya

It's always so much fun to play with a sketch and so exciting to play along with Seize the Sketch's first sketch.  You can play along here.  There is so much you can do with this one.

Engagment Photos August 2013

By now you all know how excited we are that Vanessa and Sean are engaged and they were able to have their friend Micky take their engagement photos and they came out beautiful.  They really reflect the fun and love that they share.  Of course I had to scrap some right away and it was so hard to choose two.  I had fun playing along with Creative Scrappers sketch #713.  I love Kristine's sketches.  You can check out the sketch challenge here.

Here is a card that I made with two challenge sites on my mind.  This sketch is from Page Maps and is a challenge at a really fun site called Paper Secrets.  You can play along with the challenge here for a chance to be a guest designer.  
The other challenge is from one of my most favorite sites on the web called Paper Issues.  This Issue's challenge focuses on Um Wow chipboard.  Their chipboard is really cool.  I made my leaf flourish and the found flower out of a thin chipboard and then cut paper to match and adhered on top.  The word grin and the button flower center are also out of chipboard.  I think I covered my bases.  This is for a dear aunt for her birthday.  You can check out their challenge here.
