The Studio Challenges: Together

Oh boy did I positively drool over this year's Doodlebug Design's - Flea Market. I even bought extra embellishments from the collection cause I simply loved it all.

I seem to be going back in time these past few months scrapping about the year that Alvaro, an exchange student from Spain, stayed with us. This photo is one of my favorites with these two playing "bull fighting" at the Homestead, Ky. What I don't have a photo of is Alvaro holding his ribs after my son head butted him. It's all good though!

This layout is part of this week's challenge at The Studio Challenges. The challenge is a sketch so hop on over there to view the sketch as well as the other fabulous layouts by our design team.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I so miss my sewing machine. I wanted stitching so
I went with hand-stitching on this layout.

New Design Team and Card

 Hello and welcome!! Today I would like to announce that I'm part of a new design team called "If You Give a Crafter a Cookie".

Cute, right?!

It's simple really . . . be inspired by the image of cookies for that week's challenge. This is a great opportunity to also show off any other type of projects we can come up with because it's not just a card challenge.


Without further ado, here is this week's cookie challenge!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Give a Crafter a Cookie

Well, I guess my first project is a card. LOL This is a
3-D pop dot card that I got from the online
Silhouette store.

-AC White Cardstock
-BoBunny Altitude Collection
-Silver Ribbon from HL
-AC Coffee Cardstock (deer)
-Silhouette Cameo

Before I forget, they do have a weekly sponsor for their challenges. Since most of the sponsors are all about stamping and coloring, I will most likely be doing my own thing.  I must say though that Beccy's images are awesome!!! Enjoy!

The Studio Challenges: Pumpkin Kisses

Today begins a new challenge at The Studio Challenges with this color palette as inspiration.

I did have to go digging thru my stash to figure out what I had to make this challenge work for me. It seems I had the right color flowers to start off with though!

Over the years, whenever my family and I have an outing, I don't just take a few pictures. I seem to take hundreds, literally. I am also very rarely the one in front of the camera, and it's even more rare for me to actually scrap a photo with me in it. You have that problem too, right?!

I have scrapped about this wonderful day at this pumpkin patch before but not this specific photo. My child was rather twitchy and excited so it was hard to get him to "pose" for the camera. If you look closely, I have his arm wrapped around my leg to anchor him.

For the color palette, I reached for BoBunny's Mamma Razzi and Market Street.

Thanks for stopping by today!!! Please join us at The Studio Challenge and let us see what you create.

The title is from Silhouette online store. I loved the "kisses"
part of the title.

The yellow flower is handmade by me!
