Spooky~Dt reveal for LGS

Good Morning My scrappy friends, as you know every Monday there is a new sketch over at Lets Get Sketchy and this week is my turn for the DT reveal...we have a fabulous sketch to work with by the lovely Bev Code and here is my take....

Since we're so close to Halloween I decided that would be my theme...I think I've had these stamps and chippy Alphas for two years and I'm just now using them!

I hope you'll head on over to Lets Get Sketchy  and play along with this weeks sketch!

Autumn in the air

WoW its been awhile since I've done a I thought I would tackle a couple challenge in one swoop...I hope no body minds...I check out the rules and none seemed against it!
So I used the sketch from C'est Magnifique kits....and combined the criteria from Southern girls challenge which "was words on your project" I figured the title and the background paper cover that pretty good and the criteria fro Scrap Africa which is "list it" I did list the top 12 thing I miss about living in Maine (it can be found in the envelop on my layout)

I decided on a fall theme because that was one of the things on my list...I miss the fall colors in Maine here we don't have those bright vivid colors...I used some beautiful papers from Maja Design I had gotten from
C'est Magnifique kits.

 the picture were sent by my best friend she knows how much I miss the colors so she sends me knew ones every fall!

My List:
1.Fall Colors (they just aren't quite as bright here)
2.The sun (seems to shine more in Maine)
3. Trick or treaters (we have had two in the last five years LOL) 
4.Decorations (everyone in our old neighborhood used to decorate for all the holidays)
5.Our old house
6.My bestest friend
7.Family Most of our family lives in the New England area)
8.Our old yard
9.Ginny's Flowers
10.The boys( my nephews)
12. Chinese Food (its just not the same here..they even call things by a different name)

 thanks for coming to take a peek! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Flip flop season

Here is my take on the sketch over at My Creative Sketches....I almost missed the deadline :(
I figured I would do another summer theme since the weather is now getting colder here!

thanks for popping by and taking a look at my latest project!

Beach Babe

Good afternoon my scrappy friends, I just wanted to share my layout I did for the Scrap Africa challenge...their sketch this time just screamed beach,so I pulled out my paper house endless summer papers...I really like the patterns and backgrounds but I'm not a glitter type person...every time I take this pack out there is glitter everywhere!(those green circles on the layout are all glitter) now I have it in my hair all over my desk LOL I off set the pattern paper on a piece of coordinating cardstock...
I did a bit of fussy cutting (out of a piece of scrap) because I really wanted the surfboard and waves..added some coordinating (well they looked like they coordinated to me LOL)  paint drops

all in all I like how it turned I have to clean up all the glitter and hide the rest of that paper!
thank you so much for coming to take a peek at my last project! Oh and Have a Fabulous Weekend!!!

Vintage theme

Good evening my scrappy friends, I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Mine has been pretty lazy, I spent today making up some cards and I thought I would share them with all of you...

First up is a card I made for the challenge over at Scrap Africa~ this time its a Vintage theme! It took me awhile to come up with an idea....Vintage is really hard for me...don't get me wrong I love vintage style layouts and projects but I just can't seem to make my own LOL at least ones that I like when I'm finished....but I have to say I am really lovin my card, I used a bunch of scraps and dug through my ribbons...I really thought I had an older price of lace but I think it has vanished along with those odd socks that seem to disappear from the dryer! anyway I found a stark white one and I tea dyed it...Love it! I will definitely be doing that again! anyway here is my lovely card....

and now here are two cards that were inspired by one I saw on pinterest....there weren't any directions but it looked pretty self explanatory but I wrote the basics :)
 I made these for Fall/Thanksgiving and thought I would share it's a quick and simple card but I think it packs a colorful punch! I used my silhouette portrait to cut the leaf shapes ...then took a piece of white cardstock and used some dylusions ink sprays to make my fall colors...after it dried I cut 2 pieces 2in x 5 1/2 for the inside of the card and 2 pieces at 1/2in x 5 1/2 for the outside. and voila a beautiful fall card!

 thank you so much for coming to take a peek at my latest projects!
