Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop #8

Well I am back again with my 8th card for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I made this card this evening after working and thinking about what I was going to make all day. I do not always like all my cards (I am my own worse critic) but I am happy with this one.


I saw a new challenge today at Tuesday Throwdown to use a creative border. I thought on it awhile and decided to make my own border with the negative space after I die cut the word "coffee" from along the bottom od my yellow cardstock. I then backed it up with navy blue cardstock so the border would really pop.

I used this sketch from Newton's Nook and I am entering this card in their Inky Paws Challenge #49:

I used a sweet little stamp that I won in a previous Coffee Lovers Bloghop from Stamplorations called  Coffee For All Seasons. I embellished one of the coffee cups with a sweet little hibiscus puffy sticker to make it that much more summery.

But....getting back to the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop -- I am really excited about this bloghop...there are 77 sponsors and TONS of prizes, inspiration and freebies.

This Girl Is On Fire


This time last week we were enjoying our summer vacation with my son and our granddaughters.  It was a wonderful time of making memories that I hope will last a lifetime for Abby and Izzy.  One thing that 9 year Abby wanted to do for some time now has been to go fishing. While they were here in Florida, I asked my sister and her husband who were also here visiting my Dad if they would take her fishing as they are experienced fisherpeople.  They gladly accepted and Abby had a blast catching 9 fish...including a shark!

I used this awesome sketch from Scrap Our Stash:

 Part of the challenge was to use stash items to spell out S-U-M-M-E-R. Here is what I used:
S - string on the tags
U - uniball pen for the white doodling
M - metal flair "Best Day Ever"
M - mini-alphas
E - Echo Park (Summer Party collection)
R - ruled tag

I have so many pictures from the last 2 weeks that I will have plenty of memories to scrap for the next several months.

Thanks for stopping by tonight.

Happy Birthday Dad *85*




My Dad recently turned 85 and we took him out to one of his favorite place....Maggiano's.  It was a wonderful day celebrating his milestone birthday so I just had to document the day on this page. I used this awesome sketch from Rochelle Spears' blog:


I am entering this page in Rochelle's June Rewind Sketch Challenge

Well it is late and I need to hit the sheets but I did get a chance to create a pretty girly page tonight and provided the rain will stop here in Florida long enough to photograph my page after work tomorrow, I will share it tomorrow night.  Thanks for stopping by.

Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop #7



Back again with my 7th card of the bloghop. I am really enjoying myself, in case you haven't noticed.  This time I decided to use a rather patriotic color palette because the 4th of July is coming up and that is always one of the highlights of my summer....I just love cookouts and fireworks.

I used this color challenge from My Favorite Things.


I used their sentiment as well....I just love punny sentiments. You can see more details about their challenge HERE.  You still have plenty of time to whip up an entry yourself as there is still a week left in the challenge.



I used this great sketch from Kerry Urbatch for the Sunday Coffee Lovers Sip and Share feature on the blog:

I am entering this card in that sketch challenge also.

Thanks for stopping by.

Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful


I just spent 2 weeks with this beautiful little girl pictured in the above scrapbook page. And her sister, daddy, cousins and uncle.  It was glorious to see my family and make memories with them that will hopefully last a lifetime. So now I begin documenting them and this is the first page that I created. I took this picture just this past Tuesday at our resort in Disney World and I think it shows off my lil' Izzy's natural beauty and her inner sparkle as well.  I used PhotoPlay Like A Girl collection and this awesome sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap:


That is it for today....this was my third post of the day.  I have been busy in my scraproom since I got back from vacation.  But I have another layout planned out in my head so please check back with me tomorrow to see what I have been up to.
