A birthday card for Mom

My friend, Bev, posted a challenge for May on the Just Imagine Crafts Kreaxions Punches blog and I had time last night so I thought the challenge was perfect to make my Mom a birthday card! The challenge was:

1. to use this sketch:

2. Use butterflies in accents

3. theme: Mother

Here is my card:

I used Glitz Hoopla papers, punched some hearts, butterflies and a border, added some ink, pearls to the butterflies and added a raw chipboard swirl and some flowers. Love the way it turned out! Thanks for the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs!

My first two sketches!

Being on the design team at My Scraps and More has pushed me further into the scrappy world! We just finished up a sketch crop, and yup, you guessed it, I made my first 2 sketches all by myself! (Sierra helped me with a previous one for another site) I feel like a "big girl" now! LOL!

Here is my first sketch and my layout based off it:

And here is my second sketch and layout:

Starting in June, My Scraps and More is having a talent search contest. Come on over and check it out!

A Layout From Mother's Day

WOW! Two posts in one day, that doesn't happen very often! LOL!

It's not often that I am IN a photo, I am usually the one taking them. I had Greg take a few pics of the kids and I this Mother's Day decided to scrap this one of Sierra and I right away! Of coarse it was perfect for a NSD challenge at MSW and decided to combine it with Scraptivations 4th challenge, make a handmade embellie. I decided to make these fun dryer sheet flowers! I used the new Summer Days papers from Echo Park (I just love the fun, bright colors) and some very old chipboard letters. I used a sketch from Tammi at My Scraps & More,

A Mother's Day Card

Scrappin' Chics Challenge Blog posted their first challenge on May 1st, the theme was kitchen, and I combined it with Kim's Mother's Day Card Challenge at MSW. Greg asked me to make a card for his mom and she loves to cook and bake, so I came up with this:

I love how it turned out and I think Anna May loved it!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hugs!

A layout to share

My dear daughter, Sierra and a few of her friends were in a dodgeball tournament a few weeks ago. One of the girls found these t-shirts at Walmart for a dollar each and that's where their team name came from: NERDY CHICKS RULE! And guess what??? THEY WON BEST DRESSED!

I did this layout for a challenge at My Scraps and More. The challenge was to scraplift a layout by Kim(killarnery rose). Thanks for the inspiration, Kim! I used Crate Papers Restoration Collection on this layout and made a medallion flower and added Sierra's nerdy pic to the center of it.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a great day!
