Studio Calico Sunday sketch


Fun sketch from the Studio Calico blog. Super easy and fast...unless you have to add a bunch of stuff :)!
Have a great weekend.

The one good thing about being so behind in my scrapbooking is that I come across gems like thins from time to time. I love this picture and had forgotten all about it. This sweet girl is now 7 and I love who she is becoming but I have to say, I miss the almost 4 year old girl who never questioned her mommy and loved to blow dandelions.

layout made with Studio Calico kit "Granny's Cupboard" with a few bits from my stash.

fun in the sun


Took a trip to The Bay yesterday for some summer fun. The water was so cold it was hard to get in. Luckily there were slides and I finally talked Jordan into going down by herself. She went up and came back down the stairs 6 times before she decided to brave the waters. Of course she was glad she finally went down and I couldn't keep her off of it.

many thanks

many thanks

Quick and easy card for my daughters thank you notes. I made them super simple so she could put them together herself...then she decided she didn't want to do it so I ended up finishing them up. Just as well, it would have been another week before we got them out that way!

I used some kraft cardstock (really need to branch out here and use a different color!), the OCL stamp sets Swingin by and Life Is and a little of what's left of my Cosmo Girl Friday kit. I think I may have to call that one done! I've used up almost the entire kit which is rare for me. I usually get sick of it so fast and then it just sits. I used some Copics to color the adorable owl. I'm still not very good at using them but I try!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Thought I'd try my hand at the SCS sketch challenge today. I used the OCL set Swingin' By and replaced the 3 squares on the right with the fun metal flowers from Making Memories.

OCLDT17 sketch challenge


Hi all! I was finally able to get to one of the Our Craft Lounge Friday sketches and then my computer checked out for the weekend! So here it is a few days late. It's sketch 17 and can be found here. I used the Fabulous Florals set (again I know..I love it!) and the Studio Calico kit Granny's Cupboard.

fun news

It's so hard to keep a secret! That's the reason I've been missing from blog for so long. I didn't want to let the cat out of the bag! LOL! Anyhow ....I've been asked to be a guest designer for Our Craft Lounge! Check out their blog to see the details plus check out the other 2 gals that will be guest designing for the next 3 months right along with me!

Here's my latest page using the Fancy Fringe stamp set and a Studio Calico kit.
