Just the way you are...

I have been dying to use this picture of my oldest daughter Samantha (much to her dismay lol), it was taken years ago...I love the colors and just the look on her face...yeah I know she's a bit different but I love her all the more because of it!
So I am using the challenge over at That's just so cute......The challenge this time is to "finish the page" I really like this idea and this is what I came up with....

 this is what they gave you to start with.....

Set you Free!

I decided to scrap a couple more pictures from the Balloon release we had for in honor of my Daughter back in Nov. I still have a hard time even looking at these pictures but it seems the more I scrap them the more of the happier memories come through!
I am playing along with That's just so cute its my first time playing with them!

"The challenge is to be inspired by the topic FREEDOM. You must also use the sketch below, stitching (fake or real), Buttons and butterflies."

Thank you for coming to take a peek!

Spectacutar View

It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to do with the sketch from Scrap Around the World
they also had a mood board...I think that's where my trouble began LOL

sorry its been cloudy here for days so my picture is a bit off in colors
 I really loved the cabinet in the background in the second picture on the mood board and the gauzy table cloth in the first picture...those were the two things that stuck in my hear while I was pulling stuff out of my stash...when I was shuffling through my papers this blue paint chipping just reminded me of the cabinet in the picture and knew I had to use it!

The view from my best friends new house (on the deck)!

Thank you for coming to take a peek....


I finally had a chance to sit down and get to work on lets get sketchy's latest sketch.... I decided to make a layout for my best friend,her and her family just moved to a new house so they have been doing a whole lot of work out in the yard...the pictures she sent me of her poor fur babies were just too hard to resist...I had to scrap them....all four were trapped on the deck watching their Mom clean up the yard...they look so darn pitiful!

Baby Girl.,Louis,Wicked and Caesar
They look like they are in jail LOL
here is the sketch...

 I found this page of embossed rulers and just fell in love with them so I had to use one....
 and I have this set of stamps from American crafts that I just haven't had a chance to use ....Love the trees!
and the flowers I can't remember where I got them but I just never used them LOL I used liquid pearls for the center!

Remember When...

I kept looking at the Blue Fern Studios sketch trying to be inspired....Don't get me wrong the sketch is quite awesome,I just couldn't find the right pictures until my best friend sent me the pictures of her new roses...Oh my they are beautiful,I know she was heartbroken when she moved a couple months ago because she lost her garden and with the ground still frozen she wasn't able to take any of them with her....So I decided to make this layout for her with her two favorite things Butterflies and Flowers!....

 I used a piece of Blue Fern chipboard Vintage Locks...I love them!

I flipped the sketch Horizontal

also linking up with True XoXo ~ chipboard challenge

well I used the sketch for a tag...

I turned the sketch clockwise

So Cute!

I wanted to share a layout I've been working on....this one brought back some really wonderful memories..when the girls were little I loved to dress them up in the cutest little dresses but neither one was very lady like LOL

this layout is quite girly but I love it!

 I used lots of lace and stitching....some homemade flowers and new ones I won...

 the chip board was one piece but I just didn't like the way it looked together so I cut it into two separate pieces
 I love my Prima butterflies and the crochet flowers from petaloo...
this layout happens to fall into a couple challenge is Zeus and Zoe's mood board,I just couldn't resist using it! then Scrap Africa for the use of chip board and then there is Get Creative  a layout with lots of flowers....

Spring Fever

Just wanted to share the layout I did with the sketch from Skissedilla

 here is the sketch....

thank you for coming to take a peek!

The Adventure Begins

I have been thinking and thinking what i should do with the Create to Live Challenge over at My Sweet Earth....I didn't really have the right color I figured I would do something a bit different..I was able to find the last two colors in the background paper(Bo Bunny) but the rest I used paints,a little grunge love stamps(Unity Stamps) and had a blast while doing it LOL Here is what I came up with....yeah its a bit messy.....but it was oh so much fun!

 I did use the photo as made me think of spring...the adventure part was pretty easy since I don't have a green thumb...every year I try my had at a flower garden and every year I kill

 I used a quote that I thought was quite fitting.."It's spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!  ~Mark Twain"
 I did do some journaling on the back of my past adventures in gardening and my hope for this year!
