Crazy About You

I rarely have done a scrapbook page with all four of my grandchildren on it but when I saw this Page Maps sketch, the idea occurred to me.  This page will be for my scrapbook.  Here is the sketch I used:

Instead of cutting my photos into circles, I replaced the circles with rectagulare photos.  That is the beauty of a sketvh.  It is a starting point for me and to provide inspiration.  I rarely follow a sketch precisely.

I am entering this page in the Scrap Our Stash I-N-K-S challenge.  All of this materials on this page are from my older stash and the aqua circles are actually punched out of packaging from the Imaginisce Glass Stickers that the camera in the upper left portion of the page was from.  Now that is using my stash!!  Here are the items I used for the challenge:
I -- Inked edges, Imaginisce camera glass sticker
N -- Numbers on the date circle
K -- Kids!  I have pictures of my 4 grand Kids
S -- Star

Well this was a very full weekend of craftiness....but it is back to work tomorrow for a short week and then a long fun birthday weekend in North Carolina.  Have a wonderful week.

Ahoy Matey! Happy Birthday

My grandson Cole has more energy and more personality than anyone I know.  He is so fun to be around and since I live 1000+ miles away I miss him like crazy.  This coming week is his 10th birthday so I made him a pirate card.  There is a little bit of everything in this card....paper from Echo Park, the chipboard and stickers are from October Afternoon and the sentiment is Avery Elle. The sketch is this one from My Favorite Things:

World Card Making Day

Today is one of my favorite days of the is World Card Making Day.  I was able to make 3 cards today and read lots of blogs and entered lots of contests. I really liked this card when I was done making it.  I wish I could say that about all the cards I make but unfortunately I am just not happy with some of them.  But this one is a keeper.  I used this great sketch  and just flipped it 90 degrees from Vive La Verve:

Next weekend we are going to North Carolina for a big birthday bash.  This is the last card I needed to make.  We will be celebrating 4 birthdays including little Lily's 4th birthday.  Lily is a real girlie girl so I had to make her an ultra girlie card with LOTS of pink....her favorite color (of course!)

I used this awesome sketch from Viva La Verve:

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop #3

Well here is my third post for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I really enjoyed pulling out my coffee themed stamps and dies and creating with them over this past weekend. 
Check out the details and the gorgeous projects HERE

Here is the card I created.  That COFFEE die is from Verve and I love cuts like butter.  The coffee cup die is from Simon Says Stamp and I adore the heart cutout. The stamped sentiment is from My Creative Time and the papers and wood veneer I just pulled out of my stash.

I used this sketch from Viva La Verve:

Thanks for stopping by....I hope your weekend was as productive as mine and that your week ahead is awesome.

You Make Me Happy

I was glad that I got the time to scrap a little this afternoon.  It has been a busy weekend to get everything done that needs to get done seeing that we work so many hours M-F.  I had this picture sitting on my desk for awhile of my grandsons and I last summer and I finally found just the right sketch to use to get it documented. The sketch is by Laura Whitaker who never ceases to amaze me.  I just love her sketches.  Here is the one I used for this page:

There are still a couple of days left to enter and there is an awesome prize so go ahead....just DO IT!!


Warm Thoughts...Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I love coffee....I really did not start drinking coffee until I was into my 50's and once I discovered iced coffee a few years ago, well, I am HOOKED.  This time of year I am enjoying my Pumpkin Spice iced coffee....yum!  Yes, I am one of those Pumpkin Spice people but I really only indulge in Pumpkin Spice iced coffee.  I am not into all the other Pumpkin flavored and scented items this time of year.  In fact, I really am not a big fan of pumpkin pie, either -- unless there is whipped cream. Yes LOTS of homemade whipped cream.

I am, however, a big fan of Amy Tsuruta, her card creations and her seasonal blog hops that she works so hard at sponsoring.  So I am thrilled that I found some time this weekend to make some cards to enter in the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

I used my Verve scripty COFFEE die cut and this sketch from Viva La Verve:

I LOVE their sketches!  There is still time to enter the September sketch challenges and there are 4 awesome sketches to work with.  Just go HERE for more details.

I am also entering this card in the Monday Simon Says Stamp Use a Stamp Challenge

Thanks for stopping by....hope your weekend is lovely.
