Stuck On U Sketches New PL Challenge

There is a new challenge up at Stuck on U Sketches for Project Lifers and it is a good one.......use Black-Orange-White on your page(s).

I am still working on catching up and finishing (believe it or not) my 2013 album and this is week #38 from a year ago.  But I keep good notes and have lots of pictures (most weeks) so I can do it.  I actually do not have many more weeks to do before my 2013 albums are complete.  Here is my 2 page spread shown together:

Here is the left side of the spread:

and here is the right side of the spread:

There is a prize that you could win this month and the more challenges you enter the more chances you have to win.  So link up any pocket page layout as long as you used orange, black and white on it and you could be our next big winner!

Good Luck!

Boo Buddies

Continuing on with sharing my Halloween cards -- here is another cutie...Drac and Frank or as they are affectionately known on this card "Boo Buddies".  I used this color inspiration board from Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge Blog:

Since I was inspired by these colors I am entering this card in their challenge.  I also used the World Card Making Sketch from Moxie Fab World do I am entering this card over there as well.  Here is their sketch:

I got a lot of my Halloween crafts done this weekend....what did you do?


Trick or Treat

Still hard at work on my Halloween cards and crafts.  Here is a card that I made yesterday while watching "The Notebook".  I love that makes me cry every time i watch it.

I used this sketch from My Favorite Things:

Well it is back to work in my scraproom....I still have quite a bit of work to do.  Hope you are having an awesome weekend.

Hey Frank!

I had this cute layered chipboard Frankenstein in my stash FOREVER and decided that this was the year that I was going to use it.  I rarely create a card with no sentiment on it but this card just looked complete without one.  I am not sure but I think this card might go to our nephew Gabriel.

I was inspired by the Color Coordinates challenge at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday blog

I am going to link up my card to their challenge....why don't you get inspired and do the same?  You have a week to do so!

Thanks for stopping is almost Friday!

Have a Jawsome Birthday

My grandson Cole had his 9th birthday last week.  He is such a fun and wonderful kid.  Last summer he and his older brother Jake came down to Florida with us and spent nearly a week with my husband and I.  We had the best time....they were a lot of fun.  Our home seemed empty when they left.  We are hoping they are able to come back for another trip this coming summer.

To celebrate Cole's birthday I made this card.  I saw the sentiment somewhere and reproduced it on the computer for my card because what boy ISN'T fascinated by sharks?

  I used this sketch from Stick It Down Sketches:

I love being on the card sketch design team for Stick it Down....honestly, I LOVE their sketches.  They really inspire my creativity.  Why don't you check out the sketches this month?  Not only are there card sketches but also single page and double page sketches as well.  There is truly something for everyone.

Thanks for stopping in -- I hope you have a wonderful and productive week.

O is for Owl

Don't you love when you go shopping in your stash and find something you bought, put away and forgot about? That is what happened with the Cuttlebug embossing folder I used on this card.  It is called Owl Flourish and I bought it a year or two ago and never used it until now.  And I LOVE it!!  I paired it up with my new Thanksgiving Stamp I bought from Neat & Tangled and the above easy, peasy card is the result.

And what do you think of my little owl that I picked up at Goodwill for 49 cents?   I am going to use him this year as a staging prop but next fall I am thinking of spray painting him white and using him in a fall display. That's what I call getting a lot of mileage out of an inexpensive little item.

I think I will enter this card over at the Monday Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is "O is For....."

Thanks for checking in with me...have a great week!

Welcome Baby

My brother-in-law and his wife are having their 4th child this coming week.  They are having a little girl named Rosie.  Isn't that an adorable name?  I wanted to make a card/gift card holder for them and I was inspired by Jennifer Ingle's card on the Pink Fresh Studio blog.

I used this sketch from My Favorite Things:

I added that adorable elephant chipboard from Bella Blvd., the welcome sentiment from Paper Smooches and the "BABY" sticker and shipboard heart from my stash.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  I appreciate you taking the time to stop by my blog.
