3 Girl Jam - Guest Designer

Hello all I really enjoyed putting this creation together for 3 Girl Jam be sure to check out all there fun stuff and inspiration!!!!  Here is my creation that had to be a "favour" and "contain ribbon" I figured since today was Halloween what better than a Halloween Party Box!  This was created using the Close to My Heart My Creations Box and and themed paper and stamps for Halloween, I love making the rosettes and the cute kitty was actually a stamped image that I fussy cut out and added some silver eyes!

Hope you like it!!!!  Hop everyone has a Happy and Safe Halloween!!!!

Brown Hound

I love this page that I created for the Sketchabilities DT Sketch challenge #78.  Be sure to check out all the other DT's work there is some seriously talented ladies over there!  This challenge offers some great picks from Scrap That!  I taught this page at my digital class recently, the ladies enjoyed learning how to create a traditional page using digital art work.  I used Creative Memories Storybook Software and several different digital art kits to create this page.

Perfect 1

Color-Me-Scrappy Challenge #14.  This is a great fun pallet to work with, honestly I used my cell phone for the colours and it seemed that the blue was much brighter than my interpretation, however I am still please with the way it turned out!!!!  I love the flowers that I used, the were found in my very large flower collection however I am not sure that I know where they came form so if you love them too...I am sorry that Ido not know where to send you to find some!!! I used  Little Yellow Bicycle patterned paper, Close to My Heart cardstock and ribbon, Studio Callico Washi Tape , Creative Memories Jewels, American Crafts letters, Maya Road pins, and unknown buttons.
beaded bright


This is my take on Sketch # 77 at Sketchabilities  This was a great sketch it really gave me a challenge!!  I used What'sUp paper from Basic Grey which picked up the purple in Sienna's dress so well.  I enjoy spending time with my daughter and I can't think of a better way to bond then in a filed full of strawberries!

I am really happy how this turned out, I love the rick colours form the Prima paper!!!  I used Simple Stories and Prima paper, flowers and chipboard, BoBunny brads, Close to my heart embellishments and twine.  This was a very special photo, I just love Carter and Sienna so much any moment to capture that in a photo is a great moment.  Sadly I do not get out form behind the lens as often as I should but I made a goal in the coming years that I must get more of these photos!!!

Grand Slam

charred hues

Here is my interpretation of the colour palette for Challenge #13 at Color-Me-Scrappy  I thought these colours worked so well with Carter and Sienna's T-Ball photos.  
I used a variety of product leftovers I had kicking around, have you ever created a page with all the leftovers? It is very "freeing" to release yourself from little pieces of left-over bits!!!!
Products used, Close to My Heart paper, kraft strips, brads, canvas stickers and cardstock, Maya Road pocket, Simple Stories stickers, I am Roses and Prima flowers, Jillybean Soup Monograms and Tombo adhesive

Forever Us

This is from Sketchabilities challenge!  It is a great layout to work with, I really enjoyed creating a page about my partner John and I.  It is rare that I scrapbook myself and so that's another reason why this is so special! I love the Graphic 45 paper I used in the LO the designs are so classical and elegant. I used Dusty Attic laser cut chipboard, I am Roses Flowers and American Crafts Thickers
