Peter Rabbit again

Check out my guest post at Crafter's Companion. I am sharing a tutorial on how I made the background  over there! I am entering this in their challenge and Simon Says show a bit of brown (i inked the outside edges with brown and there is a lot of brown colored in the image...

Have a great, sunshiny day!

Peter Rabbit in Yellow and Green

Since I am guest designer over at Crafter's Companion this month, I thought I'd make another "yellow" card for the challenge. I added some texture to this card by distressing the edges with my CTMH distressing tool to add it to the Simon Says Texture challenge. I also splattered some Luminarte powders on this which has some texture (and sparkle--which allows me to add it to Stacy's challenge) all by itself. Finally, I added some gorgeous Crate Paper buttons! One of the boys just might have to give me this card for some occasion. I don't' know if I can let it go. I love Peter Rabbit!!! I colored the image with CTMH water color pencils and some copics.

Thanks so much for visiting! I really appreciate it!

You and Me - Senior Photos

I made this for Scrapfit's Sketch Workout #69. Do you think the final layout should have the heart ribbon (#2) or not (#1)?  I'll go with the majority of the crowd!! I also entered this in my friend Stacy's challenge and Simon Says Anything Goes!.

Thanks for visiting! If you leave me a comment, I'll do my best to get around to you! I have been so busy, I'm surprised I found time to scrap!!! :-) 

Thanks for looking!


I was in the mood to make something quick and easy. Luckily, The Paper Variety had a no scrapbook layout or card challenge and Simon Says has an anything goes challenge.  So, I can enter these bookmarks into their challenges.

Thanks for looking!

Crafter's Companion Mouse in Yellow

I was excited to be asked to be the guest designer at Crafter's Companion this month.  That provided me with just the motivation I needed to make this little card.  I painted the bows and the dress with some yellow glittery powder that I got from Luminarte after coloring them in with markers.  I made it for Crafter's Companion's sunshine/yellow challenge, Moxie Fab World's splatter challenge (I did splatter some of the Luminarte powders on my card stock before stamping it to make it seem like the sunshine is splattering all over) and finally for my friend Stacy's challenge to add pearls to your card.  I was lucky to have a friend who gave me the beautiful crochet flowers. I popped my pearls inside them.  Isn't this mouse sweet.

I'd like to encourage you to join the Crafter's Companion challenge this month.  The prize is awesome! A $30 gift card to their store. You can pick what you'd like.  You just have to use a stamp that they sell and the color yellow.  Pretty easy, right?! :-)

I'm hoping to craft more next week. So, you may see some layouts next week.

Also, just a note that we still haven't sold our house!  Please send prayers and positive energy our way! Thanks and have a great day!

Thanks for visiting!

Campus Visit

Here's a layout I made using mostly Echo Park Times & Seasons. I added some vintage buttons, some arrow from CTMH, a vinyl clock that was in my stash and a pretty doily. I got the doily and Times & Seasons pack from Rebecca. Thanks, Rebecca!! She does amazing work also if you'd care to go visit her.  Anyway, I'm entering this layout into Simon Says Anything Goes--my favorite challenge hands down! :-)

Thanks for visiting!
