Week 8 at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle!

It's Saturday people and that means it's time for a new challenge over at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays! This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge. I just love sketch challenges, and this weeks sketch is awesome. The DT has done an amazing job with this sketch, you gotta come see and leave these ladies some lovin!

Here's what I came up with. I used some scraps I had in my stash (love using up those scraps) from the Paper Studio. These colors just make me so happy. The layered flower was created using my cuttlebug and a little button.

So come on over and show us what you got! There are some cute little buns up for grabs as the prize this week. They are just adorable! You have until Friday, Oct. 2nd at 10pm to link up to your creation to be in for the prize. Hope you'll join us!

Sketchfest Tuesday

Can you believe that I am actually posting my third card for sketchfest? Must have gotten a bug or something.....can't believe I'm keepin up! Of course, all the other projects on my to-do list are getting further and further behind. Oh, well, I just can't resist these awesome sketches featured on Caardvarks Sketchfest!

For this card, I wanted to go a little more masculine. I used my September kit from Paper Popsicles (Talkin Smack) to put this baby together. The only thing not in the kit was my orange ribbon! Thanks for looking!

Sweet Girl

I just love these sweet pics of my girl taken a few years ago. Her home day care provider always took pics of the kids and she took beautiful photos. These were taken in 2006. DD still had those baby sweet cheeks and chubby fingers! Oh, I miss those! I used a sketch created by Lynda on the Paper Popsicles Message Board. The best things about this sketch is that I didn't have to resize or crop my photos....just used the regular 4 X 6 size! So easy. I used MME paper (also from my dear friend Lynda, thanks girl) for my background and my embellies. I added a few flowers, a little bling, a couple of buttons, and a tag. I think this LO does justice with these sweet pics. TFL!!

Black, White & Pink

My favorite color combo of all time!!!! I finally got a chance to sit down with a tutorial from the Paper Popsicles Message Board to create a drawer box to hold my cards. Along with that I created a box to hold my paper kits. I used the same priority mail box that they came in....just cut off the top and an angle, covered it with black and white and tied a ribbon around it and WA LA! I created the tin a while back. I love how these turned out! TFL!

Fall is in the air!

Well, it's not quite feeling like fall around here just yet. We get a touch of it in the evenings but it's still pretty hot during the day. The Spider Lillies are coming up so I take that as a good sign.

I'm still trying to catch up with my fave challenges....I'm about a week behind! Here is a card I created using LAST week's card sketch from Mojo Monday. The papers and the leaf sticker is from Paper Studios. The digi-stamp is from M&M Designz at Digital-Inc. Co. I colored the image with copics. The sentiment sticker is from Creative Memories. Thanks for looking!

Better Late than Never

Better late than never I always say. This LO is based on LAST week's sketch at Let's Scrap. I worked on this booger for a week!!! It was the ribbon pleating around the circle that gave me so much fits.....BUT I've got it down now!! Then, on top of that, I couldn't get a good pic....rainy and overcast here the last couple of day. Anyway, the paper is Karen Foster Designs and stickers are from M&MBI. Thanks for looking!

What do you want to be when you grow up? Week 5 at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle!

So, what do you want to be when you grow up?! This week's challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle requires the help of a little one or the connection with your inner child. Have your little one help you create a card about what they want to be when they grow up OR create a card about what you wanted to be when you grew up (whether it ended up happening or not!!!).

I got Trinity to help me out this week. Just like her Mommy, she wants to be a teacher when she grows up!!! She thinks it would be so cool to have her own classroom and be able "to tell all the kids what to do"!!! We found this image on google images and thought it was just perfect. She did her magic with color pencils (see the make-up!!!). Please let her know if you like her creation! And don't forget to get your little people to create with you this week!
