Silhouette Challenge: Hello My Friend

Hello there! Today I'm sharing with you my project for the Silhouette Challenge blog

KBD: Keep Calm and Craft On

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today is my turn to bring you a project featuring Kadoodle Bug Designs.

I recently moved across the country, and therefore into a new craft room. I am slowly deciding how I want to decorate. I finally made something new, cute and sweet for my crafty space. Trust me, the rest of my house is not this "cute and feminine".

This project was made in stages. First deciding about the wooden signs, how many to have and what color. Then making the 'uber' cute critters from Kadoodle Bug Designs. And finally adding small touches of handmade flowers and buttons.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

All my critters are cut and put together. Even the eyes
are made by me.

I just love how the golden yellow of this duck can really
make the eyes "pop". 

The daisies surrounding this skunk are divine. I did add
one extra handmade flower of my own.

Make Today Great

Hello there!!

My good on-line friend, Georgiana Carson, likes to coral and bully her crafty buddies to join challenges.

This past weekend she nudged a few of us to join Paper Play Sketches this month. I told her next time to phrase her request like this,

          "Now you ladies get busy now. You bought all this stuff so go make something with it. Here.....Start with this sketch." 

So if you are one of the ones that Georgiana likes to nudge, those words are coming your way!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

LGS: Dreamer

It's time for a new sketch this week over at Let's Get Sketchy!!

Triangles can be so fun to work with - practically a classic.

I took this photo a little over 2 years ago. I'm not 100% satisfied with the title, but I could not find anything else suitable. 

I'll leave it to you to decide who the "dreamer" is ... :)

Head on over to Let's Get Sketchy to see what else our fabulous team came up with for this week's sketch.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Let's Get Sketchy: Seriously Awesome!

Hello there! Welcome to my blog. Today I'm sharing with you my layout using this week's sketch from Let's Get Sketchy!

Truth . . . I've been holding onto this photo for quite a while trying to come up with the perfect paper to use with it. My son is young and boisterous here. Only loud "boy" colors would do.

My sister and I recently found a local scrapbook store . . . went shopping . . . and the rest is history.

Hop on over to Let's Get Sketchy to see what else our fabulous team came up with.

Thanks for stopping by today.
