I made this for a challenge over
at Paper Piecing and Scrapbook Fun (yahoo group)
The challenge was to make a paper piecing that represents spring.
I made this little bee from a rubber stamp image
(I belive the stamp is made by TAC)
Once I got the piece finished I thought he turned out really cute
and wanted to use him on a layout...
And this is the layout I done. I thought it came out so cute!
I love that photo of Carter!

Monster Truck Birthday Layout

Nothing Major really..the cover page for Carter's
6th birthday.
We had a monster truck come in as a surprise.
All the kids (and adults) loved it

Happy Birthday Jaidon

I really should not post this disgrace lol..
This is NOT a cake I am proud of!!
But I wanted to show you a cheap way of adding a photo to
your cake. It's not ediable but it's doable.
I took a 4x6 photo and wrapped it good and tight with saran wrap,
then place it on your cake and pipe frosting around it.
That's all there is too it!
I always add extra frosting to where the photo is going to lay so when you pull
it up that section of the cake isn't without frosting.

Altered Cd with a Unicorn Paper Piecing

My friends daughter is doing her room
in fairies and unicorns.
I made this paper piece and wasn't sure what
I was going to do with it.
Well I ended up mounting it onto a regular old
no good cd and making it into a wall hanging for her.
She will receive this for her birthday.
Hope she likes it!!

Happy Belated Birthday Karen

I made this card for Karen on Scrapbook Lane.
I didn't get her card sent in time.
Shame on me :)
I'm fairly happy with how this card turned out..I wish I had different ribbon tho.
For the cherry on the dropped ice cream I glued a red bead.
I love that image!!!

I guess I'm on a kick with these rainy day stamps lol..
I made this card and bookmark for my friend Barbee.

a little something to lift her spirits.

When life gives you a rainy day.....remember to play in the puddles

This is a card I made for my Sister In Law.
She's going through a rough spot right now and
I thought maybe the card would cheer her up a bit.
I think it turned out cute.
It's hard to see on the front of the card but full
bodied duck is pop-dotted.

Triple the Sketch Challenge

Over at Triple The Sketch Blog they have a sketch for anyone who wants to try it. (Several sketches actually). It's too late to get in on the prize but it's still a great sketch for a card or layout.

My layout came out similar to the sketch but I had to change things up a little bit to make it work how I wanted it to. (But who says you have to follow sketches to a T!)
