Enjoy life

This week's sketch at My Scraps and More was so easy to play with.  I created this LO in about a half hour just by layering some papers.  My daughter has such a love of life.  She is always up for anything.  I love this photo of her twirling in her dress.  To me this photo says "happy"!

You can upload your creations on the MS&M sketch blog!

Here are a few close ups:

How awesome are those chipboard chevrons???

I used the chevron border background, chevron panel and the social hashtags.

Bday girl

The April challenge at Creative Embellishments is so much fun this month!  Check out this great photo inspiration:

Here is another challenge:  APRIL Challenge ..inspiration picture plus 4. Use only 4 items from the list of 10.

Straws/rolled paper
trims- ribbon, lace, bakers twine or hemp
enamel dots or buttons
Texture paste, gesso
A handmade flower
embossing- dry or heat
Bling- Rhinestones or pearls
A flourish

On my LO I used Texture paste, enamel dots, baker's twine, and mist/paint.  This challenge was right up my alley!  Love the fun and bright photo inspiration!  I painted the chipboard circles and cut out matching pattern paper to put inside them.  This LO was all about circles, enamel dots, flair, the alphas and even the stencil I used was circles!   I was also inspired by the birthday theme of the photo challenge so I used a photo of my daughter's 9th Birthday. 

Check out these awesome chipboard circles in the Creative Embellishments store!

Where is spring?

It seems like spring has forgotten to show up here.  Yet another snow storm today!  Although it doesn't look like spring outside, it sure looks like it in my scrap room!  Scrapbook nerd send me some beautiful light collections to work with this month.  I received some Pink Paislee Color Wash and some Teresa Collins He Said She Said.

 I love this die cut paper!

I made some cute little arrows with photo corners!

I love using masks to add color to my LO!

 These Heidi Swapp words are so awesome!!

 This was literally a 15 minute LO! The nerds challenged us to use die cuts this month so I cut out the title on my Cameo.

Basic Grey has packages of flowers and I love the look when you layer them.

I had some fun with the circles in one of the pattern papers.

And some fun with the chevron paper too!

Love these chalkboard thickers!

You can find all these in the scrapbook nerd store!

Rock Star

Hi everyone,  today I have a fun LO I created using some awesome Creative Embellishments products.  Last year I took my daughter out on a little "rock star" photo shoot.  We had so much fun.  This kid is such a good sport, I took about 200 photos and she never complained!

I painted the chipboard with some black paint and then I added some Ferro texture paste on the smaller stars.   I really like the effect it created.  Here are a few close ups.

I used the You Rock frame set and the Star frames on my LO.

Boys and toys

Hi everyone, it's reveal time at My Scraps and More Sketches again!  We had a fun sketch to work with this time.  I loved the big circle on the sketch and decided to have a little fun with it.

Here is the sketch

And here is my LO

I love this photo of my son.  It's sooo him.  He's always wanting to figure out how everything works.  I decided to use a gear instead of the circle on the sketch, it really fit well with this photo!
