Jazzy Inspirations Challenge 16 and some CANDY...

Each challenge I have participated in on the Jazzy Inspirations blog has been so much fun. It's even more special now that I am a member of the design team! This week there is a chance for you to win some fantastic blog candy just for playing along! You should definitely take the time to rock out a wonderful card and get yourself entered for some blog candy. This week the design team was challenged to use the colors, turquoise/teal, white and black from the trumpet print. Here is what I came up with:

Now where is your card for the challenge?

My Brother...

What can I say??? I just love how this layout turned out. I didn't intend on taking a close-up photo, it just happened by accident and then after seeing it I knew I had to make a layout with it. I really enjoyed the time I spent with my brother for lunch that day and looking back while working on this layout made me smile, just like he does.

I made it back safely from my "camping" trip this weekend. It was a lot of fun and I can't wait to do it next year. With all the bragging Lori and I have done I think we might have to do it twice, once with just the two of us for our new tradition and then a second time and invite all of our other scrapper friends. I am sure they would have enjoyed themselves as well. Hopefully I will have a free daylight moment to snap a couple pictures for you to see what I accomplished. I actually got a lot of layouts done. However, I had one very specific project, July's SAC, and it's a sketch challenge and didn't even put a dent on it. Lori picked up some paper for me on here way here and I printed the pictures out for the July SAC. Got up to the mountains and pulled everything out and no sketch!! I was bummed. Guess I know what I will be doing this weekend. : )

Have a wonderful Wednesday!



I just couldn't resist making a cute layout for Heather of the picture I took of her and the girls. I gave it to her for a Mother's Day/Birthday Gift. Now I just need to find her a frame for it as I haven't given her the scrapping bug! LOL

I have lots to do today! Getting ready for the BIG "camping" trip with my BFF. We are going away and scrapping for three days! Wahoo! I am super excited. I am hoping to have lots to share when I return but most of all to come back rested and relaxed! Got a scrap mag packed and a good book to read, now just to gather all those scrapping supplies. LOL

Have a great weekend!

Jazzy Inspirations Challenge 15...

It's that time............

...time for my first card as a design team member for Jazzy Inspirations. Wahoo!

For this challenge we were going off the "Sweets" Edison Album cover for the colors bright green, bright yellow, white and black. I have a large list of cards I need to finish for all kinds of occasions and this challenge was perfect for Lori and Josh's anniversary card! I hope they like it! : ) I was able to ink up my new SU set Herb Expressions. Wow, I love that set. Can't wait to use it again. I also used the set Wonderful Favorites which has something for every occasion.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Saturday! It's been a long humid day. Can't wait to see what is in store for me tomorrow! Don't forget to stop by the other design team members blogs and see what they created this week!



Here is one of the layouts that I created for the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's week of fun:

I took this picture when I was on my way to the coast for my scrapping weekend and spent some time with my older brother. We went to lunch and then stopped at the viewpoint for some pictures. It was some wonderful quality time!



I found out earlier this week that I am on the Jazzy Inspirations Design Team! I am so excited. As many of you know I have been following the blog for a while now and really enjoy the challenges. So, when the chance to apply for the design team came up I couldn't pass on the opportunity! Be sure to stop back by on Saturday to see what I have created for our first challenge! I think you will like it! Also, take a minute to check out the other design team members blogs (links on my sidebar)... I think you will really enjoy their work, I sure do!


A day at the park...

I had the pleasure of watching my two "nieces" a while back and had a lot of fun snapping photos of them at the park. They just love the camera. My friend Heather, their mom, showed up to get them at the park and decided to play with us for a while. I couldn't let the opportunity pass by not taking a family photo of them. : )

This is the layout for my book.
I used a supply challenge to give this layout creating a little of a twist. I had to use 3 solid colors of cardstock, 2 printed papers, two buttons, ribbon and one other embellishment of my choice. I used a flower.

Thanks for stopping by!
