Kindle Love

Hello crafty ladies! I created this layout using the sketch for the Grand Divas Scrappy Place challenge. I also plan to submit this entry for  Challenge Yourself #21. The paper is from the Fancy Pants Trendsetter line and I used my new stamps from Sugar Pea designs.

Tic Tac Toe Challenge

I created this layout for the July Challenge on Rochelle Spear's blog I mixed a little too much mist in with my texture paste so the color is darker than I planned. I didn't want to trash the paper so I had to go with it.  My son and I were taking an ice cream break after swim lessons when I tried to take his picture and was too slow to get my phone out. I asked him to smile for the camera when I finally got my phone out and this was his response...THE LOOK. I don't know why he hates taking pictures so much.

Wild Child

We spent spring break camping in Big Sur. This photo is not the best, but the beach was beautiful. The sand, when wet, turned a beautiful shade of purple. I am entering this layout into the Stuck Sketches April challenge and also the Scrap Our Stash April Challenge. The word of the month for April is stamp. 
T...Tag / Topper

WHOGAS March Sketch Challenge

I found this old pic of my son who is now 25 years old. I used a pagemap sketch and created this layout for the March Who Gives a Scrap sketch challenge. The paper is from the Fancy Pants Be Different line.

On the VictoriaMarie facebook group there was an ingredient challenge. I had to use three patterned papers, one solid paper, at least five diecuts, mixed media of your choice and a textured element. As you can see there is no mixed media element on the paper but I did meet all the other requirements.
