This is HUGE

Good Morning! Design Team Sister, Melissa, asked us to use the mouse cut from the Meow cartridge.

This is what I came up with:

The stamp is from My Pink Stamper and the elephant is from Animal Kingdom.

Hippo Birdie Two Ewes

I think that is my favorite pun from My Pink Stamper's stamp sets.

Robyn sent me some more stamps to play with and I was excited to oblige. She sent me two sets: Lunchbox Thoughts and That's Puny-licious.

Here's what I've done so far:

I have another card made from this set but you can't see it until Monday. It's for Bitten by the Bug 2. The hippo and bird are from Create a Critter and the Ewes are from Birthday Bash.

These are from Lunchbox Thoughts. I just loved the idea of having stamps to make cards to sneak in your child's lunchbox. These are little cards, around 3x3.

I put a little Glossy Accents on the pieces because you know, pepperoni is greasy. Both of these cuts are from Locker Talk.

I plan on making more cards with these stamps. I'll keep you posted. ;) Thanks for visiting.

Oh, well. I applied for the Hambly Design Team. Didn't make it, but I'll keep chugging along here. They asked for an unseen project. Here is what I sent them:

Hambly, owl stamp is Technique Tuesday, alpha chipboard is Cosmo Cricket, a tiny touch of Lily Bee and the wings are old Fancy Pants. The heart is a negative space from a Cricut cut. Spray paint for the blue splatters.

Thanks for looking and thanks for your sweet comments.

Good Morning! This week at Bitten by the Bug 2, Mona asked us to use the "Joy" cut from the Winter Woodland cart. Here is my take on it:

I added a little jingle bell and the snowman is a chipboard embellishment from BasicGrey.

Thanks for looking. :D

This was a card I originally made for Ready, Set, Create but they ended up not needing it. I was really nervous about coloring in the tiger but I think it turned out ok. That is the 2nd time I had to color him. The first time he ended up a little too red.

Stamps are Mark's Finest Papers.
Copics to color

I'm so excited! My very good friend, Pat, fixed my photo of Ashley. Look at it now!!

No more toilet, no more bag. It's absolutely perfect!!!! Thank you so much, Pat!

Laugh with me

I've been taking photos for a LONG time. I was a 11 when I got my first camera. I know you're supposed to look at the background before you snap the picture. I know this.

However, yesterday I was so worried about ISO, aperture, composition, etc that I didn't follow the number one rule....look at your background.

*sigh* It's a beautiful SOOC picture of mother and son with a couple of exceptions. There is a blue bag or something over her right shoulder that is distracting me but not as much as the image of the toilet over her left arm.

At first, I was sooo mad at myself. I was almost in tears. However, having slept on it now, I think it's kinda funny.

So, let's laugh, learn and go back to the basics. Ashley, Blake and I will try again on Tuesday.

Hello baby boy

Since this started out as a scrapbooking blog, I thought I better add a layout every once in awhile. I've been bombarding you with just pictures lately.

I have been scrapbooking but I just haven't been able to post anything yet. I'm making projects for Ready, Set, Create!

I did get this done the other day...

It's my first layout of my first grandchild, Blake. I love Lily Bee and I thought the new Memorandum collection would be perfect.

Thank you always for your sweet comments.
