Blue Skies

My last post for August.  Who knew this summer would fly by so quickly.  This post will be just as quick.  Today is all about blue and orange... a color challenge.  Did you do your card Sarah?  Anyway, I ran right to my stash of DCWV papers and pulled what I thought went together well.  The striped paper is from Hippie Chic, the rest is from The Citrus Stack.  The balloon is Verve Up up and Away set and the sentiment is from Blue Skies.  It doesn't show real well in this photo but everything is really sparkly.  Well I'm off, see you in September.

Something Different

I thought I'd share something besides a card with you today.  This was a project I did years ago.  Its a CD case turned into a mini scrapbook or photo frame.  I popped out the insides and then just cut your dp to fit inside the little tabs.  I added some stickers and ribbon, its supposed to have a vintage feel.  Then you can either glue your pics inside or do as I did and use a clip to hold a picture so you can change it out when you want to.  That was my plan but I love this picture of my baby so much that I never did change it.  This was taken 5yrs ago when I caught him standing at our front door looking at the world outside. 
I hope you enjoyed today's post even though it wasn't a card.  These CD photo frames make great gifts for loved ones.  I've made several over the years.  Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day.

Hello Mojo

Ok so I'm cheating a little bit again.  Today's card is for a personal challenge between my friend and I and if you're a regular reader of my blog you know this has been going on for months now, about 2 a month.  Well we were supposed to use a Verve sketch for today's challenge but I cheated and used Mojo ... shhhh don't tell her maybe she won't know. LOL

So here's what I used.  I used some Groovy Guava on top of some white.  The dp was a sample given to me by a friend so I really don't know who its by but I loved the colors in it and that's where the color inspiration came from for this card.  I used another piece of dp for the border.  The Hello stamp was a dollar find at Joann's I believe by Studio 112.  I rarely just have a sentiment on the front of my card so this was a little out of the box for me.  I colored it with SU markers and then stamped the Verve butterfly from Blue Skies.  I think the SU razzleberry fit well with these colors and used a little bit of it in the scallop circle.

Thanks for stopping by today.  See ya next Sunday

A Pirates Life for Me

Well there was a slight mix up last week and somehow 2 posts got posted in one week but that's ok because it gives me a chance to share a scrapbook page I did from our recent trip to Disney.  Since we've been home I've been asked what was my favorite part of Disney World and it wasn't the rides or the food or a certain park, it was watching my son experience Disney for the first time and seeing some of the things that brought him pure joy.  One of which was getting transformed into a Pirate!  If you have a Pirate loving kid and you're on your way to Disney World I can't recommend The Pirate's League in the Magic Kingdom enough.  It was the absolute best experience next to the character breakfast we attended.  Well enough jabbering and on to the photo

Here's page 1 of the 2 pg spread.  I used cricut Wall Decor and More cart and cut out the skull.  The title at the top was done with A Child's Year cart.  The rest is a combo of stickers.  One of the exciting things about that happened after the transformation was we were just in time for the Captain Jack Sparrow tutorial and our son was lucky enough to get picked to be on stage with him. 

Here is page 2.  He also got a chance to meet Angelica.  Anyone who has seen the latest Pirates movie will know that Angelica is Blackbeard's daughter.  Well I hope you enjoyed this post.  See you next week.

Ode to the Mouse

Well this is my Ode to Mickey Mouse.  I love Mickey, have since I was a kid.  The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was a must see in my house growing up.  M-I-C see ya real soon K-E-Y Why because we love you M-O-U-S-E.   And to top it all off we just got back from a 2 week trip to Disney and it was our son's first visit to the Kingdom.  If I ever find time to scrapbook the pics I'll try to put some on here. 

So back to the card.  This would be a perfect card for a kids birthday or if you wanted to surprise someone with their own trip to visit the Mouse.  I layered some real red over the white base and added a piece of striped DCWV paper.  I layered the polk dot panel and the striped panel with some Daffodil Delight by SU to bring in the color from Mickey's shoes.  The Mickey stamp I got from JoAnn's a year ago in anticipation of our Disney trip.  I colored Mickey with markers and stamped the sentiment from the same set.  The 2 buttons are to represent the buttons on Mickey's pants.  I hope you enjoyed today's post.  Summer will be over before you know it.  Enjoy your week
