Guy Birthday Card - CCC digi

I love the digital images over at Bugaboo Digi Stamps! The humor in them are great or maybe it's just my warped sense of humor...lol  Either way, they have best images for so many different occasions to make you smile and also serious ones too.
I created this card using Gus the Golfer digi image and colored him with Copic Markers.

Picture Perfect - CC

Today I have a sketch from Colorful Creations to share with ya all. Colorful Creations is also having a design team call, so if you love to scrap and also love to work with sketches then you will love this team. So what are you waiting for, the call ends on Sept. 23!!
On the background I sprayed some mists and also used a brick stencil with some modeling paste and then after it dried I painted the paste with some watercolors to give the rustic brick look. This picture of my kids was about 7.5 years ago on our cruise to Alaska. Since it was a formal picture I went a little more formal with my papers and embellies then I normally do. I always love the looks of Webster's Pages but for my scrappy style I am normally at a loss as to what to do with them. I do though like how this came out with the bricks on the background.

Autumn Wreath

Just wanted to share the 1st wreath I have ever made. Very time consuming and lots of blisters on the fingers later from the hot glue gun but kinda of a fun project. Think I might make some more! But Christmas ones since autumn colors really are not my favorite.

Day of Beauty - LGS

Another girly page! They still are not as easy for me to do as the guy pages but I keep trying. :) I also used glitter this time and now I remember why I don't like using glitter. Its been a week and am still seeing sparkles everywhere from it...lol All the glitter and pink just seemed to go with the beauty salon theme I was trying to create for these pictures of my daughter of me highlighting her hair and then color the ends a bright pink. It was the 1st time she had ever had her hair colored. I used the Let's Get Sketchy sketch that is up on their blog today.

My Sunshine - GD Frosted Designs

So excited! Today I am up on the Frosted Designs blog as a Guest Designer! I love their challenges and also their monthly kits. Stop on by and visit them if you haven't already! 
I made this layout for my reveal of my daughter with some pictures of her when we were in Belize this summer. She found this pretty yellow flower and wanted to wear it behind her ear for a picture but the wind kept blowing it off before I got a picture. It was one of those moments that you just have to laugh. 
I like to mix things up and very rarely will use all of the same collection on one page. On this page I used 2 collections from Studio Calico - Brighton Pier and Lemon Lush and the background paper is Heidi Swapp Dreamy. I used a sunburst stencil on the background with a darker color yellow mist in the center and a lighter yellow towards the end of the rays. Did some sewing around the edges and lots of paper layers. Then added a bunch of random embellies I had laying around.

Totally Random - MSAM Sketch #90

The 1st sketch of September is up over at My Scraps & More, sketch #90.  Lots of circle on this sketch! So I made a mat by cutting circles out on a white cardstock with my Cameo. I used rectangle pictures instead of the circle pictures, I just couldn't bring myself to cut the pictures up that much. I found some Little Yellow Bicycle papers I have been hoarding to use for my sons pictures.
I hope you all join us at MSAM, I would love to see your take on the sketch!

I used a picture of my daughter as a baby laughing at bubbles I was blowing for her. I did some circles on the background paper with watercolors, stamped and flicked some black mist onto it too. I used Crate Paper Notes & Things on most of the page with a few other odds and ends.

Puppy Power - LGS

Let's Get Sketchy has a new sketch up for you all to play with today! I have to admit, this sketch was really difficult for me to work with. I am not used to doing my pages so symmetrical. I guess I like to make my pages more uneven and messy....lol  The more I look at the page the more I am liking it and I always love a good challenge.
I decided to scrap some pictures of our new puppy, she is sooo cute! I made my own cut file for the title on my Cameo Slihouette, 1st time I've made my own. I also did some sewing which I very rarely ever do. This page may not be of my normal style but it was fun challenging myself to try some different things.


The title is a cut file I made and I also cut a shadow of it.
