Nuts About Sketches #282

Hello!  A day late, but here is my creation for the new sketch at Nuts About Sketches
It's all Fancy Pants paper that I had in my stash.  I had cut a large circle & misted it with Glimmer Mist.  All the flowers are fussy cut from the Fancy Pants paper, & embellished with Dew Drops.  I used Thickers for the letters & added a little twine on the brackets.
The pictures are of Emma goofing around on laundry day one day.  She thought it would be funny to sit in her hamper, but once in there, she couldn't get out & was getting really mad.
Thanks for looking today! I am going to Hideaway Hills scrapbooking retreat this coming weekend, so I am gonna get my craft on!  I hope to get a lot done, so stay tuned in the weeks to come see what I've created. Have a great week!!

Nuts About Sketches #280 & 281

Well hello there!  Happy Labor Day!  I hope that you are enjoying your mini vacation after the first week of school.  I know our first week of school was exciting, & crazy at the same time.  Both girls love their teachers, & love the kids in their class. It is going to be a great year!

With the craziness of the summer behind me, I think that I will be able to get on a regular blog schedule again.  No kids pulling me in every which direction while trying to get them scheduled.

Last week was the last week of the old DT at Nuts About Sketches, & this week the new DT started their designs.  It has been a pleasure working with everyone that will no longer be remaining on the team.  I really enjoyed your work each week.  Congrats to the new team!  I can't wait to see what you all come up with.  That is what I love about sketches.  It is one sketch & every one that uses it as inspiration will come up with something different.

With that being said, here is what I created with last weeks sketch, #280:

These pics are from just some random day, January 2009.  We were having lunch & they both starting being super silly & so I got the camera out & started snapping pictures.  Funny things is that I remember it like it was yesterday!

And sketch #281:

My lil Audra!  This was her 4th b-day party at Ozzy's in PA.  It was such a fun party.  Climbing, bouncing, eating pizza & cupcakes.  These pics are when we were singing happy birthday to her (of course).

Thank you for stopping by again today.  I hope that you have enjoyed my creations.  Again, if you want to see anything specific, or want more details on how or why I did what I did, or if you want to know supplies, please let me know.  I would be happy to oblige.

Have a fantastic week!!!

Red Carpet Studios - Anything Goes Challenge

Hello!  Have you survived the Red Carpet Studios blog hop?  That was pretty incredible, wasn't it?  There was so much inspiration, & fun projects.  But the fun isn't over yet.  Be sure to keep checking back on the RCS facebook  page for more fun & games & prizes. 
Today a new challenge has been posted at RCS & it is an Anything Goes challenge.  It is based on the movie Anything Else, hence the anything goes challenge.  :) 
The sponsor is The Robin's Nest and one lucky, randomly chosen winner will receive a fall paper grouping prize pack! Don't forget, the team will also be choosing their 3 favorite projects be featured in the "Spotlight!"  So be sure to head over to the RCS blog & link up your projects.  I can't wait to see what you have created.


 Here is what I have created for this weeks challenge:

Honestly, I think this might be my favorite card that I've made so far!  The image is from one of our sponsor's for the blog hop, Kenny K's Digis & I colored it using my Tombow markers. I just used scraps of paper from a card class that took at Archiver's this week, & I hand cut stars, used pop dots to raise the saying, some of the stars, & the image, then I embellished w/ some twine & gems.   Voila!  I fun card!  

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope that I was able to give you some inspiration.  Any comments, suggestions, ideas on how to make my blog better, I would totally love to hear!  Have a fabulous rest of your labor day!!
