Leo and Stuart at the Zoo

I made this cute little layout of Stuart and Leo at the zoo. The alligator is a CTMH fussy cut image which I stamped on green paper and then embossed! I actually have changed this layout a little bit in that I added two fun jungle-type leaves that I punched from a Fiskars spunch that I got from Tania Willis! Too lazy to rephotograph but suffice it to say that it added some cuteness to the top yellow circles!  Thanks again, Tania!  I used a sketch (I think #230) from Sketch Inspiration for this layout!

Have a great day!

Pretty in Pink

I made these two items for Stacy's card and layout challenges at Sketches 4 All.  You have until July 31 to play. Won't you please play? If you do and win (the chances are high since there aren't many entries yet), you will receive a great prize! I've been lucky there more than once and have often thought Stacy is TOO generous!! So, take advantage of her generosity and get some crafting completed by doing a fun challenge!  I also played tic-tac-toe over at The Paper Variety with the card.  My winning combo:


Use ... stitching, make a card, and include the color pink!

We've been so very busy this summer!

I finally got the energy to make a layout. I used this week's Sketchy Thursday's challenge and Stacy's Mix It Up limits (staples, ink, ribbon and flowers)!  You really should try Stacy's challenges over at Sketches 4 All. She is so very generous in spirit and in prizes!! I always enjoy a good sketch and Sketchy Thursdays provides me with some great motivation!

A Card - CTMH

Finally, a craft! I joined up with CTMH (again) just so I could buy some albums. My piles of scrapbook pages have been building up!!! So, here is a card I made with a couple of ladies who ordered a few things from me!

I'm cleaning up my craft room. I only have one section left and it is the hard stuff-miscellaneous bits and pieces! I want to organize them so that I know where everything is!! That is really hard for me even though I am a librarian!!!!

Have a great day! Thanks for visiting! It makes my day when you leave a comment!!! :-)

Stuart and Leo - Easter Take 2

Has anyone else noticed that blogger has changed the way you add images? Anyway, here is another layout I did of the boys. It was for my friend Stacy's Mix It Up challenge where you were limited to 4 types of items: ribbon, glitter, stamps, and stickers.

I woke in the middle of the night with a splitting migraine. I feel ok this morning but wanted to feel great!!! Lots to do today! Wish me luck!

Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend to all of my USA friends and fantastic weekend for everyone else!

Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day!
