Sweet!

Isn't she sweet?  My little sweet Sarah (niece) is 3 mo in this picture and adorable as the day she was born. Every time I look at this picture, I always wonder what she's thinking. I found the title in the Resource Center of Scrapbook.com.  I thought it was perfect for this page.  "Sometimes Angels come without wings."   This page came from sketch for this week's SYAO Sketch Challenge over at Paper Secrets

Just Sittin' Here

This is my card for this week's CYAO15 challenge over at Paper Secrets.  I had some of the CTMH pretty Lucy Paper out from finishing up my scrap layout.   It's really pretty colors, much more dramatic IRL.    The sketch was from 6th Anniversary Celebration Sketch over at Page Maps.   I'll use it again, it's a great way to use multiple DSP.

Life! Sit Back and Enjoy the Ride

I found these pictures looking through a box for another item.   They're just some random pictures from some work events but each of them made me laugh as I thought of the memory behind the photos.  It's a good reminder that there are lots of fun things at work,  not just paper,  LOL! The sketch is from this week's SYAO 15 challenge over at Paper Secrets.  We're in a weekly scrap challenge and I can't believe we're already on week 15.  I'm still playing which is even more fun.  These sketches have really helped me "branch out" using sketches to work with the pictures I want to scrap.  I'm learning every week that they're just a starting point and it works great,  doesn't have to be exactly like the sketch.   The CTMH Dotty For You paper was still laying on my desk from the card I did for Mother's Day and just seemed like fun colors for this layout. 

Stay Inspired!

Finally Dotty For You

I've been wanting to play with my new CTMH "Dotty For You" Paper and finally tonight I had the MOJO going to get it out and have some fun.   The colors are so bright and cheerful and it was hard to choose which print to use.   I needed to get my card done so I could get it in the mail for it to arrive on time for my Mom so it worked out perfectly that I was inspired tonight by this week's Freshly Made Sketches .  I actually used this sketch for some other cards I made tonight also as it was a great way to showcase the great colors of this paper.    How fun because the H2H Challenge this week & the Paper Players Challenge is to show off our Mother's Day Cards and I'm excited to show this off!   Stay Inspired!

UGLY Paper Challenge

This month over at Friends That Scrap we're having a challenge to use "UGLY" paper. To make the challenge a little more difficult, we chose the ugliest papers from our stash and sent them to another so the "UGLY" paper that we're using is from someone else's stash. I was a little worried. Bless my partner Mary's heart, she must have been doing a MUCH better job over the last few years selecting paper because the paper she sent me wasn't so bad ... actually it came together great for some Grad Cards I needed to get busy on. The vellum on the card is the "UGLY" stuff she sent me, the rest is Close To My Heart cardstock. I started this card with this week's Card Patterns Sketch 164. Of course I had to add a little to the sketch to get my sentiment on the card but inspiration is always welcome!

I've Arrived!

In my usual fashion, late but with a GREAT story to tell. I didn't join the bloggers of the world until now because what would I have to share, at the time, I didn't think anything...well...I've changed my mind. I do want to share with all my friends and family-- my thoughts, creations and ideas. So, welcome to my World.

We'll Live, Love and Laugh 4 Life together!

Looking out the Living Room Window I realized today was a good day to get those projects I've been putting off DONE! It was beautiful to look at but I sure didn't want to get out in it this morning! Good thing I was on vacation.
