Red Carpet Studio - Anything Disney

Hi there!
This week at Red Carpet Studio, the card team & the layout team are playing together.  Our challenge was to make anything Disney.  Seriously, just craft anything that had to do with Disney!  That leaves your options wide open!  If you haven't stopped over there, check out some of the awesome projects that the teams have made.  I saw a bank, a lantern, & some beautiful cards & layouts.  Be sure to play along for some great prizes.

This picture was taken at one of the girls friends (back in PA).  It was a princess & pirates party.  There was crafts, & dancing, & games, & then when Cinderella walked in (accompanied by a pirate), the world stopped for my girls.  All they did was stare at her & follow her around.  They were in such awe it was so funny, as you can see by their expressionless faces! 

I found some princess paper in my stash, so it was a no brainer what paper & pictures to use.  We haven't been to Disney....yet!  That is  planned at the later part of this year!  Yay!!!

Thank you for looking!
Have a glorious day!

Nuts About Sketches #232

And a good morning to you!
How are you this fine day?  I hope that you are doing great.  I am so glad that you swung by today.

Another sketch was posted at Nuts About Sketches today, & of course, it was another great sketch.  It was for an 8x10 photo, which I don't know that I have ever scrapped before, so this was a new one for me.

This picture was taken one of the nights on our cruise in 2011.  If I haven't mentioned it before, our bill when we left the ship consisted of pictures & booze!  It think that we bought almost every picture that was taken of us!  I think that of all the pics that were taken of us, this might be one of  my favorite.  Looking at this picture makes me chuckle because I look so different now.  What a differnce a year can make (& 65lbs!!).

I used supplies from a Memory Works kit.

Be sure to stop by again soon.  I have been creating quite a bit lately, plus I love to have you!

Red Carpet Studio - Sci-Fi Card

Today at the Red Carpet Studio, a brand new card challenge has been posted.  The challenge is to come up with a Sci-Fi card.  Think robots, aliens, dragons, unicorns....or as what I decided to use, monsters. 

As soon as I had seen the challenge, I knew exactly what paper I was going to use.  It is rather old, maybe 3-4 years old, but it is by October Afternoon.  I had gotten it to make a scrapbook for my friends baby,  for her "lil monster".  I loved this line so much that I bought 2 of everything! 

While you are thinking of it, head over to Red Carpet Studio Challenge now & play along.  There is a great sponsor, with a wonderful prize.

I hope that you like my card as much as I enjoyed making it.
Have a good one!

Nuts About Sketches #231

Good morning!
Another wonderful sketch was posted today at Nuts About Sketches.  As always, it was fun to work with.  Here is my latest & greatest:

These pictures are of our old house in PA.  Tony had decided that he wanted to finish the basement, & wanted to do it all by himself.  It took him a LONG time to do it, but he did!  When we found out we were pregnant with Audra, he wanted to get it done before she was born, so he worked every free moment that he had on that basement.  When he finished with the drywall, he came up from the basement looking like this!  However, that is the place that we spent the most time as a family.  Playing, hanging out, watching movies....All of his hard work paid off, & it was money (& time) well spent.  He was so proud of himself too!!

Thanks for stopping.
I hope to see you back soon.

Sketchabilities #75

Good morning!
My first submission for the Sketchabilities DT was revealed this week.  I really really loved this sketch!  It was so much fun to work with & it left so much up to the imagination. 

 As you may or may not know, I am obsessed with baby feet!  They are so squishy & pudgy & pinchable!  I love them. So, of course when I had Emma, I couldn't keep them out of my mouth & I was always squishing them.  I have wanted to scrap this picture for almost 7 years now, & finally did!  Look at those cute baby feet!!!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I have been so busy & have posts set up through the end of November, so keep stopping back!

Have a fabulous day!

Nuts About Sketches #230

Today is my second reveal for the Nuts About Sketches DT.  I am so thrilled to be back on Shawn's DT.  She does the best sketches, for great inspiration.  You are going to see quite a few layouts in the weeks to come of Tony & my cruise in 2011.  I came across of stack of pictures that I totally forgot about, so why not scrap them & put them in a special 10 year anniversary album.  So with the NAS sketch #230 I came created this lo:

This is of what we saw when we were leaving the port in NYC.  Even though we had been to NY many many many times, Tony still took soooo many pictures.  This is only a few of them....he took a gazillion more & I narrowed it down to the best ones.  He was a little excited to get away just him & I, I guess.  ;o)

As far as supplies that I used, honesly, most of them are from the paper that came with the album that I bought on board the ship.  lol. 

Thanks for looking.
Have a fabulous day!

Red Carpet Studio Card Pun

Hi there!
Today at the Red Carpet Studio, a Charlie Chaplin Pun Challenge has been posted.  You are to use a pun on your card.  Well, this was a tough one for me.  I looked through many magazines, searched the internet, even asked my husband, for the perfect pun.  I am not a stamper, so my cards are made from everything but stamps.  So, after all my research, & looking through my stash, I came up with this:

 I had cloud paper, & the sun, flowers & tree were an overlay that I cut up, & the skunk....well, I found a coloring page online of a skunk & shrank it  & then used the kids water colors to paint it.  This was all a challenge, & I hope that you are up for the challenge as well.  Head on over to the Red Carpet Studio & play along.  There is an awesome sponsor as well! 

Thank you for looking & I hope to see you over at Red Carpet Studio.
Have a good one!

Nuts About Sketches #229

Yay!!!  Today is my first reveal for Nuts About Sketches since my return to Shawn's team!  I am so excited. It started out with a bang too!  What a great sketch.  A double page lo!  When I first started scrapping, the only thing that I would do was double pages.  I have since mostly scrapped single pages, so when she gives me a double page sketch, I love it!!! 

This is from when Tony & I took a cruise in August of 2011 to celebrate our 10 year anniversary.  It was our 1st vacation in years without the kids!  This was us boarding the ship, then sitting on the deck as the ship departed from NYC.  Very funny picture of myself!  I have since lost 64lbs, so it is quite funny looking at the pictures from this cruise.

The supplies I used were from a Memory Works kit, & some random brads that I had in my stash.

Thank you for visiting!
See you soon!

For this premiere, I decided to go with a "Black & White" or "Silent" films projects.  I created 2 cards, one of which is showcased on their blog.

You should definitely head over to Red Carpet Studio today to check out the goings on.  The first challenge will be posted tomorrow, September 2nd, & they have some sponsor freebies, & discounts as well.  Also, the winner of the Cuttlebug was announced today!
