Beachy Thank You card

I made a lot of cards this month....27 to be exact.  I was hoping for 31 but our weekend in Chicago for my grandson's graduation got in the way.  I still feel very accomplished and have mailed over 1/2 of them and have quite a nice stash to pull from for upcoming occasions.  This card you see here is one for my stash.  I always seem to need thank you cards.  I used this fun sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:

Well tomorrow is the end of the month and June is just around the corner....where has the time gone?

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I appreciate your kind comments.


You Are Awesome

I just loved that Kristine is bring her blog Creative Scrappers back and sharing new sketches.  Her sketches have always inspired me and this one was no exception.  Here is the page I created with her latest sketch:

These pictures were just taken a week ago on our quick weekend trip to Chicago.  I get so little time to spend with my beloved granddaughters that although these photos aren't so great, we had such a wonderful time in the hotel pool that I had to create a page for the girls' scrapbook.  I used papers from the Photo Play collection Like A Girl (I love this new-to-me company) and I am entering this page in the sketch challenge at Creative Scrappers.

I am also entering this page in Clique Kits Anything Goes May Challenge.

Well, Monday is over with and so is our long weekend.  Thanks for stopping by tonight.


Matchbook Memories

I have a match book collection that I have been wanting to document for sometime.  The current Elle's Studio sketch was perfect to do so and here it is! I used everything from Elle's Studio except perhaps that small wood veneer heart.  Here is the current sketch:

There is still time to enter a page with this sketch yourself.  Check out all the details HERE

12 months of Selfies

I rarely do 2 page layouts but I had the idea for this page rumbling around in my head for several months now and there was no way I was going to attempt to squeeze 12 pictures on one page.  I am not totally happy with this....too much white space for my liking and the pretty patterned paper got all covered up but I am glad I got the pages done and in our scrapbook. I used this awesome sketch from Scrap Much?:

I am squeaking this entry in right in the nick of time as the deadline is only 6 hours away!  Whew!  That is cutting it close!   I am also entering it in Clique Kits Anything Goes Challenge.

How's your Memorial Day weekend going?  Ours so far, has been the perfect mix of getting things done and relaxing.  Thanks for taking time to check out my blog.


She Believed.....

I am still working on making a card a day in May.  This one is for my daughter in law because I think she is pretty amazing.  I used this great sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:

I am also entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.

Well, it is late and we are planning to go to the gym in the morning so I am going to hit the sheets.  I hope you are njoying your Memorial Day weekend.

What's The Buzz?

I just loved the sketch this week at My Favorite Things.  I REALLY need to build my stash of their gorgeous stamps and dies.  The sentiment on this card is from MFT but those adorable bees are a Unity Stamp image.  I used this sketch from My Favorite Things:

It is almost the weekend....does that make you as happy as it makes me????


Anchors Away on Your Special Day

Day 26 and I am still plugging away at a card a day.  The end is in sight.  I am so proud to have made 26 cards already and most of them have already been mailed out.  I am now at the point where I have no one else to mail a card to so I am building my stash.  I can always use birthday cards so that is what I made tonight.  I used an awesome paper pad by Kaiser Craft that has everything in the pad that you see on this card....fabulous patterned paper, borders and die cuts.  I paired it up with this great sketch from Your Next Stamp:

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I truly appreciate each and every visit.
