Woohoo! It's Friday!
I am so looking forward to a 3 day weekend! How about you?
I am sharing a layout today that I created using a sketch at Scrap Our Stash. I used Bella Blvd. Sunshine & Happiness for this layout of the kids and I:

I used a stamp to create the black background circles. I used Gelatos and a stencil to create the colored circles. I also added some watercolor and drops of mist.

For my larger handmade flower, O used a scalloped circle punch and then cut towards the center of every 3rd scallop. I topped it off with a sticker popped up with foam tape. The smaller red flowers were made twisting ribbon.

Just a few more close ups:

Here is the fun sketch:

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

I added some of the Foil diecuts and a wood veneer tag:

I used washi tapes for my strips:

For the twist I used pink, blue and yellow along with washi tape, diecuts and watercolors.
Have a wonderful day!

Cards In Envy has a new challenge up today:

Sweet Summer Time!

Yup, it's almost that time.... summer time that is! I love summer- camping, gardening, no working. No working is the best part.

It's my day to post a challenge over at Turtle Soup. My challenge is a lift challenge. I lifted a page by Jackie P. This was the result of that lift:

I used Simple Stories Summer Fresh.
Here are some close ups:

I fussy cut the balloon and the sun from the papers and popped them up with foam dots.

Family Fun

Happy Wednesday!
It has been a busy week so far, but I am taking a few minutes to post a layout I created using sketch #138 at Sketchabilities. I love playing along with their sketches, it brings out the messy side of me!

I used a photo of Greg, the kids and I on a stop along the way of our Jet Boat Tour in the Wisconsin Dells last summer. If you ever get there, make sure to take this awesome ride!
I used a baby line from Crate Paper- Little Bo Peep:

I fussy cut the flowers and used my Cameo to cut the green leaves, which I added watercolor to:

I also cut the word "Family" on my Cameo and the word "Fun" are Thickers. I stitched a thin punched border:

I fussy cut the tags from one of the papers as well:

This shows my stamped & watercolored background:

Here is the fun sketch I used:
Thanks for stopping by. Now I am off to make meatloaf and mashed potatoes for dinner, booster club meeting and then hoping to catch the end of Survivor.
