A few favorites

Happy Thursday my crafty friends!!! One more day closer to the weekend! I thought I'd just pop in and share my take on the August sketch from My Creative Sketches, I followed it pretty closely this time since I really loved he flow of things!
I mixed and matched my papers the background is Tim Holtz (love love this paper) then I used some scraps from DCWV and Colorbok... I am really happy with how it turned out!

 I added some handmade flowers and a couple white ones from Prima.....some die cuts and added a few butterflies!

Travel Adventures

  Good evening scrappers I just wanted to share a layout I did for the challenge over at Scrap Africa - Challenge no.33 - Travel Adventures. I decided to use my favorite picture from our last trip to Maine...we had stopped at a rest area ( haha there were many...its a really long drive 23 hours) and they had this cute little carved bear holding a welcome sign, if it had been just a bit smaller I would have hijacked it! LOL
I mixed and matched my papers, a couple different paper lines lets see there was Best creations Inc,Tim Holtz studio calico and pickle press (lol no clue where that one came from)... I was a little miffed because this layout took me way to long.... and I blame that on my daughter LOL she went away for the weekend and took the heat gun with her!! I think I will just have to break down and buy my own LOL

There is journaling on the back of this layout about the finer points of our road trip from Wisconsin to Maine!

 I thought I would mention that I am very thrilled with my homemade flowers hehe I love how flowers look on layouts but I never have any :( so I try really hard to make pretty ones!

One more thing to share.....for the challenge over at Beyond Grey- BGC#57 - Watercolors
I made a card and used water color pencils to color the flowers.

thank you so much for stopping by, I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!

Twice as nice

Hello my scrappy friends, I just wanted to share a couple projects I made for this fabulous challenge over on the Flying Unicorn Forum, its called Twice as nice..... Not only if the Flying Unicorn a crafty supplies/kits/mixed media supply online store but they also have a fabulous forum where they hold monthly challenges...right now they have 10 different challenges going on...they a little bit of everything...Cards,Layout,OTP,art journals~ from beginners to pro's....if you haven't stopped by you should head on over and check things out!

Twice as nice challenge
 How many times do you make something, you give it away/gift it away and you then think to yourself, I should have made another one of them before I gave it away? Does that happen to you? Have to say it definitely happens to me.

So the challenge this month is to make something, but whatever you make, you need to make another, just like it, or very, very similar.

They need to be able to see the resemblance (stole this explanation from the forum) your aloud to enter three separate times....and here are my three that I entered...

 this was my latest entry- I used my beloved Graphic 45 papers....

this set I went with a clean and simple style and LOVE how they turned out!

 and here was my first entry, I did a pair of screen fold cards- I used water color pencils to color the image...

Twice as nice challenge
