Brown & Blue Cards

I had 3 sheets of paper left over from a kit, added som ribbons, brads, and paper scraps, and put together these cards! I love the brown/blue color combination. What do you think?

Friends that Scrap Blog Hop!

Welcome to our “Friends That Scrap” first annual Blog Hop. We are a yahoo based group that loves to scrapbook, learn new techniques and styles from other crafty gals like ourselves, share our talents and like to form on-line friendships with those that have our same interests. This blog hop is designed to share our “Destination Summer” projects with you and, if you are located in the United States or Canada, invite you to come and join our yahoo group!

If this is your first stop on the blog hop, you will want to start at the beginning at Debbie's Blog (she is one of the co-owners of the “Friends That Scrap” group) . You will visit eleven member’s blogs, starting with Debbie, who then will link you to the next blog. You’ll find some great summer related projects and most blogs have a giveaway for you to enter. Giveaways close on Sunday, July 24th at midnight CST so be sure to visit all the blogs and comment by then.

One of my favorite things about the group (if I have to pick just one) is the monthly sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch for July:
I used this sketch for my Destination Summer project and created this layout of some pictures I took on a picnic with my "little kids" while the "big kids" were at basketball camp.  I really like the foam title letters - just picked those up at Hobby Lobby last week.  Wish I had a couple more Jolee's dragonflies to add, but sometimes you just have to work with that you have :)
If you're interested in an active group with friendly people take a moment to join by visiting Friends_That_Scrap and click on the JOIN button. You will receive a New Member Application via email. This must be completed and returned before your membership will be approved.

Your next stop is at Alicia'sBlog
And if you lose your way, you can always go back to the start at Debbie's Blog to get a complete list of blogs to visit.

Happy Blog Hopping!!

New Layouts!

The first layout is for a poem written by my DD2 in January 2009 at age 11.  The sandcastle was not made by me, I received it ages ago from one of my yahoo group scrapping friends.

I received the cute embellishments for this layout from one of my friends in the yahoo group Friends That Scrap. Thought it was a good opportunity to do a layout devoted to my Sweetie!

This layout was put together for a Friends that Scrap challenge. This is an attempt to include a little dose of inside information - our family's reality....

Fancy Pants Card Kit - It's Your Day

It's been awhile since I posted some projects, so there's quite a few to add.  I'll start with these cards I put together using a card kit from Fancy Pants called It's Your Day.
