Mission Control......

....we have a birthday!  I love this little space explorer stamp set from My Favorite Things, with 7 grandsons, 6 and under...these will definitely be needed!

 I used this sketch as my inspiration and just started playing around with the elements of the stamp set.  I wanted to use all the planets, cute rocket and space explorer and hopefully get them all on without it being over crowded, I think it worked well with this sketch!!  I colored up 4 different sets in blue, green, purple and red.  SO FUN!!

Sending Prayers

I made this simple card to send to a neighbor whose family is battling the COVID virus, she is a little older lady and lives alone, I think this gorgeous bouqet of flowers from Simon Says Stamp is the perfect image.  I have used the Prayers die from MFT on the inside with a note.  I used the color challenge over at My Favorite Things, which is a fun spring/summer color combo.

You & Me

I'm so excited to be the April guest designer over at LET'S GET SKETCHY!  

What a fun and fabulous sketch!  I cut out the stars on my silhouette and used the You & Me wood veneer from Freckled Fawn as well as the enamel heart, arrows and dots, I used some strips of pattern paper for the top and bottom and a little washi as well.  I finished it off with some white paint spatters.  The cute pic is of my daughter and grandson and will be gifting her this layout for her album!  
Hope you like my layout and will join us for April's Sketch Challenge

I played around with a stamp set that I've had for awhile and finally broke it out and broke it in.  I love flamingos and was obsessed with them when I was a only fitting that I grabbed this adorable set from Sugar Pea Designs called Let's Flamingle

and here is my card!  I used stamps and a mix of ink from several companies, the tree trunks were hand drawn as were the bushes and the sun was inked on with a sponge dauber...I just love this whole set, love the water ripples, the flower and the super cute flamingo!

All Bundled Up

A very rare occasion to be able to take snow pictures as we live in the desert, but we found ourselves heading north for a dr appt for little Nash and got a total white winter! 

I used this fun sketch from Let's Get Sketchy and papers from Simple Stories Sub Zero collection. I dry brushed white paint just above and below the pictures to wash out the color a little bit and really liked how that turned out.

First Fall

I got another layout done this weekend, I think this is the most I've scrapped in a very long time (years) , if felt really good to actually put some pictures to paper and then put in an album.  Ive really got to spend more time catching up....

  This layout was inspired by the sketch at Scrap Our Stash, I used the right side and my flowers are in the border paper and the Hello Fall title.   This is my daughter, her husband and baby....I just have to say that I'm a little obsessed with my handsome little grandbaby!

Woah, I finally got a scrap page done!  It's been awhile, but I really want to get caught up on my pictures and get them in albums.  

This page is when my grandbaby was born, pictures where taken in the hospital (first 48) and I love how they turned out.  

I used the sketch from the Let's Get Sketchy Jan challenge as my inspiration.  The rest of the pictures from that photoshoot will go Project Life style.  
I used Simple Stories Oh BABY! collection and a couple pattern papers from my stash.  I used some embossing powder, but really wish I would have left that off....I'm not really liking how that part of it turned out, but I LOVE the stickers and papers from the OH  BABY collection, they are so cute and perfect!
