Snapchat Obsession

It's been so good to spend some time actually scrapping, lately I've been pulled in too many directions and while I still have a few weeks of other obligations, I was happy to find a little time to join a layout sketch challenge over at Let's Get Sketchy

                                             Here is the sketch and then my take on it!

I didn't know anything about snapchat for the longest time and then when I did.....Holy Cow, I had found a way to entertain myself for a long time.  I would take pictures everyday with my favorite filters and trust me.....I have a ton!  This is a smidge of the pics and some fun ones.  I absolutely LOVE BREAD HEAD.....such a good time!  Anyway, I'm entering this in the Let's Get Sketchy challenge and then after a couple months I'm really hoping to get back to scrapbooking on a more regular basis!

Everything on this layout except for the letters are from my stash, and some elements from paper collections at are way old.  The letters are die cuts from My Favorite Stamps.

New Home

OH MY GOODNESS, I am so in love with this stamp set from My Favorite Things called
 Hangin with my Gnomies!  I mean look at this adorable little gnome home!  Soooo cute!  I love all things mythical and fantastical, so this set was a must have.  There are some fun punny gnome sentiments, mushrooms, ladybugs, flowers and leaves and 4 different gnomes along with the house.

I followed the challenge for the color combination and the sketch over at MFT for this card and love how it turned out.

and here is my take on the sketch and color combinations. I colored with copics and masked the house to shade the background with Simon Says Stamp ink and Taylor Expressions blender tools (first time using them and I LOVE them)

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. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

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!
