http://www.diecutsrusdesignteam.blogspot.com had an awesome challenge to combine a colour from my minds eye new line, and white.. I chose pink and white.. what better colour to choose to do a layout of my new angel and I. I used so many different fun things on this layout. First I cut my bazzill bling into 6×6 squares, both of them 2 shades of pink(sorry I dont remember the name of the colours), then I did the same with my gorgeous patterned paper that was dying to get used for months. I made a patchwork with the squares for my base, and used my martha stewart scalloped edge punch on the patterned paper.! Then I used 2 pictures of Abigail and I. I accented with gems, to add a bit of bling. In the center I placed 2 of my thrift store find silk flowers, with an accenting brad, and hand drew some stickle flourishes. Then I had to figure out what to do for a title. I was inspired by what my mother says to me all the time “Before I was your mom…” and then she finishes the sentence. So, I cut my title with Sure Cuts A Lot out of white.. for the journalling I took 3 paint chips in various shades of pink, edged them with the same martha stewart edge punch, and layered them. My journalling says ” I slept 8 hours a night, I got to shower every morning, I wasn’t complete”… all things applicable to life before I was Abby’s mom! Ithen tied some polkadot pretty in pink ribbon around the bottom.  I hope you like my layout as much as I do! I had a blast making it. Please feel free to comment!

http://365cards.blogspot.com/ has a song inspired challenge..wow..Ive never done one based on a song..
since I had never done a challenge based on a song, I figured it was embracing the true word of CHALLENGE. I took inspiration from the “red roses” and the “colors of the rainbow so pretty”

I hope you enjoy! I had fun with this card! Took forever for the stickles to dry tho! LOL

A few new pages!

Well I got in my groove, and made 2 pages!! The first one is of Abigail, in an outfit she got a million times at her baby shower. I bought her one too..lol! I love the outfit. I painstakingly tried to recreate the bib’s horse and look in the layout! Not sure how good it is, but I think alright! The 2nd layout is of Zachary and Abby in their BIG BRO/ little sister shirts I got them at Gymboree! I love the shirts and the layout!! Enjoy!

Christmas cards!! 6 more!

Ok so today naptime came later than normal..yesterday..no nap..hence why I didn’t do the 2 sketches I posted yesterday. So I decided to let my mojo go on its own way without assistance today, and made some cards!!! Hope you enjoy!

Have you seen this? OH MY GOODNESS!

WOW! All I gotta say is WOWZ!! Apparently people who find Cricut’s golden tickets for the cruise will also be given one of these machines as part of the prize! WOWZA! I wish I was one that found a golden ticket..now I know how Charlie Bucket feels..lol

cardsI am decorating Zachary’s playroom in Sesame Street characters..as it is his new favorite show, and he loves his “mo” aka Elmo.  Here are the first 2 I have cut! Lots more to do, as his playroom is the biggest room in the house!

http://trimmiescraftchallenge.blogspot.com/ has a challenge for a shaped card. They are also looking for new design team members…2 of them. I can only hope that this card is up to the par of some of the competition for the design team. I started with my Wild Card cricut cartridge, and cut the base of my card…shaped like a baby buggy. I used designer paper for the buggy..its so cute!!  I then embellished with lace, primas, and a fancy brad, as well as some stickles and faux stitching. I cut the words new arrival out of purely pomegranate Stampin Up cardstock.. then to add a bit of something to the card, I cut the baby, who you only see her little head til you open the card. I cut a bow to put in her hair, that matches the buggy, and you cant really see it, but added some little earrings…two tiny drops of star dust stickles. It was such a fun card to make… thanks for looking!!! Click on the small pics to view larger!

Hugs, and happy Scrappy Days,
