Jazzy Inspirations 17...

Here is the card I created this week with our challenge:

We were to use the colors, dark blue, orange, red, black and white. This week were were also given a Digi Shack image to work with (you need to go check out their stuff) The winner of this weeks challenge has a chance to win $15 towards images. What are you waiting for.... make a card with the colors and submit it!

I do have to admit that this challenge was a tough one for me. I still am not 100% happy with what I created but with a deadline it had to do. : ) LOL. The colors were tough, not ones I would typically use together which I guess is why it is a challenge isn't it? LOL. Anyway, I would love for you to head over to the Jazzy Inspirations Blog (link is on the sidebar to the left) and also check out what all the designers and guest designers created! You will love their creations!


July SAC Part 2...

For this months Swap A Crop I was given Michelle's pictures. They are from her family egg hunt. I didn't have much for Easter paper and wasn't for sure what I was going to create. Lori was on her way to visit and I knew she was going to be stopping by Craft Warehouse. I was excited. So, she picked me up the paper.

I took the pictures up to our camping weekend but realized I forgot the sketch that I was to follow at home. I had to put it on hold till we got back. I was bummed. Anyway, camping or no camping I really liked how it turned out!


July SAC Part 1...

Okay, I mentioned earlier this week that I'd show you another layout Jean made. Well, here it is:

She was given my July photos to scrap so when I opened my package from her I not only received my June SAC layout I got July's too! I was super excited. She is such a great scrapper. I enjoy her touch to my layouts.

This page is a collection of some of the plant life from Korea. She made a couple photo collages that look very beautiful. She did have a sketch to go off of for the swap and did it perfectly. Thanks Jean for two wonderful layouts!


June SAC from Jean...

Here is the wonderful layout Jean made me:

The gal that was supposed to scrap for me did what I call "flaked" and never followed through with her commitments. Unfortunately, I wasn't the only one left hanging. So, our wonderful hostess, Steph, found some individuals to step in and create our layouts. Jean is such a sweetheart and volunteered to do my pictures. She did a super job. I love the layout. Take a peek later this week and I will show you the other fabulous layout she made (gotta take another pic).

Happy Monday!


Fair time comes to an end...

Wow, did July ever fly by?!!?!? It seems just like yesterday I was enjoying our wonderful spring weather. Not anymore. It's one hot cookie here. I am not much of a hot weather person. I think that is why I prefer the spring and the fall. They are medium temperatures for my area and I get to enjoy all the colors that go with both.

Yesterday August appeared and it was also the last day for the Union County Fair. Today I went and picked up all of my entries and collected my fair premium. I just love entering stuff. It brings me great joy. This year I entered a scrapbook page (the one I showed earlier title "my brother"), three photographs (one from my trip to the coast and two of the Burgess girls), and two different kinds of cookies.

This year Mom entered lots of different vegetables from the garden (pea pods, green beans, rhubarb, crookneck squash, cherry tomatoes and chives) as well as a wonderful mixed flower bouquet. I couldn't part with an ear of corn nor a pumpkin from my garden so we called it good and just entered her garden goodies.

All the yard work is done for the weekend so hopefully now I can do a little more creating. I have some fun goodies coming in the mail and I want plenty of time to play with them. : )
