Celebrate birthday card

Happy Sunday!  It's beautiful out here in Sunny California and the flowers are starting to bloom everywhere I look.  Spring is definitely here :)  

Today I have a birthday card to share with you.  I created it for a birthday party for an 11 yr old.  Everything you see here is from the DCWV Celebration stack.  I chalked around the paper with Quick Quotes Amaretto chalk.  

I used my favorite sketch blog, Sketch-N-Scrap for my inspiration.  You can find their card sketch challenge here.

Hope the weather is great where you are, too!

Two Cards One Sketch

I'm back today with two cards I created using Sketch-N-Scrap's April 5th card sketch.  I liked the sketch so much, I had to use it twice.  Once for a teacher appreciation card and once for a Mother's day card.   

The thank you card was created with Bobunny paper and stickers from October Afternoon.

The Mother's Day card was created with My Mind's Eye Lost and Found paper, flowers cut from a Spellbinder's die, and a sentiment stamped from Crafter's Companion's Humphrey Me to To stamp set.

I also just noticed today that Sketch-N-Scrap has another brilliant card sketch posted for this month here.

Enjoy your week!

Level Up

Today's layout features my son hanging around at one of his favorite spots last year, Boulderdash.  As he climbed all over their faux rock walls, he gradually lost his fear of heights and had so much fun.

I created the layout using the DCWV The Generation Tech Stack.  The layout is based on a sketch challenge over at Sketch- N-Scrap.  Looking at this picture, it's hard to believe that this school year is almost over.   But first things, first - I need to get boiling so we can dye some Easter eggs :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Attitude is Everything

Good morning friends.  I have another layout of my girl in pre-school again today.  The layout is my take on this Sketch-N-Scrap sketch challenge.  

I used bits and pieces of various collections for my layout.  I believe the background paper is from Sassafras Lass, though it could be October Afternoon.

This is the 2nd layout I was able to make over the weekend with my friend, Stacy.   I may make another one today though, as the kids are home sick.  They picked up a bug traveling to Las Vegas.  I think next time, we'll drive ;)

Have a great day!

It's spring break around here and our family took a trip to Las Vegas to visit friends in Las Vegas.  It had been about six months since I had seen my bff, Stacy, and we had a great time catching up and scrapbooking together.  I decided to take some pictures of Lara in pre-school that I hadn't gotten to yet.  I used a scrapbook sketch from Stuck On U Sketches as a starting off point.

The paper and embellishments were a hodgepodge of supplies I either had in my stash or I grabbed from Stacy.  

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
