Sistah/Brotha Blogger Week 19 Challenge

Image
I am on a roll tonight. I had started this project a yr or so ago. My middle daughter is expecting and I took the ultra sound pictures to finish off this project. It is a boy so the blue worked out just fine. 

**Week 19: Renew, Reuse, Recycle** In honor of Earth Day, post a project using something recycled. It can be a new or "recycled" post ;D ~OR~ simply create something with an Earth Day theme.

I can't remember what the box was from and the corrugated mini was a box that I had ripped up and painted with some paint from Wally. All the goodies that I hot glued on the box is from my stash. When my husband worked in Dallas I would go down to the Only .99 Cent store and load up on the baby items.










 FYI~ my oldest daughter is also pregnant and she is due in Dec so there will be a lot of baby things coming on my blog

 Okay, that is it for me tonight.....Be Bless

I Scrap Therefore, I AM April Challenge

Image
This evening I completed April's challenge over at Scraps of Color in the I Scrap Therefore, I AM group

the challenge is
APRIL: Showers, Rain, Spirituality

Mine is a simple layout. Back on Easter I went to my hometown for Church service. The Pastor asked for all past choir members to get up in the choir stand. This was a great feeling since I hadn't sung in St. Joseph Choir over 20 yrs. My daughter snapped this picture on her cellphone and it isn't a good one but at least I will have my memories :)

I used the paper pack from Hobby Lobby called Faith from The Paper Studio :D
Off to complete another challenge Have a bless Sunday

Sunshine Card and My PL

Image
Last night while skyping with a friend. I needed to clean my scrap room and complete a couple of challenges. Over at Freshly Made Sketches I used this week's sketch to come up with this card.



 I used my Cameo for the sun and umbrella cuts. The paper(Echo Park A Perfect Summer) is from my SP and Company monthly kit along with the stamp used (Sunshine Emma). 



I didn't get a chance to post my PL that I completed last Thursday but here are the pages.

Birthday Boy Kendrian

Image
Today my only grandson turns 6. I have chatted about him a lot and you will remember he loves basketball so I made him a tall card with Everyday Paper Dolls cart.

I put the little boy on a wobble. The title was cut from the cart Birthday Bash (yeah for me using two carts and my Expression)
Today he also shares his birthday with his classmate and he wanted me to make him a card also. I used Birthday Bash again.
Another wobble. I used the stamp from SP Company Bold Sentiments III for the outside and inside 

Now a few pics of the birthday boy
Kendrian choose to go to Chucky e Cheese 

I was the winner



Sponge Bob is still his favorite

Image
Hello crafters, can you believe I am on time for once with this challenge. Week 18 challenge was a great one for me. My grandson is turning 6 on Wednesday and the challenge is to create with at least one number on it. Well I used my expression with Graphically Speaking to cut out the 6




Kendrian's fav color is red so this layout will work for him. I used a decorative photo corner on the photo mat.
Well I am off to get ready for tonight on SOC for Friday Night's Challenge with the host my good friend Treva and we will be making Mother's Day cards so come and join in.

Mojo Monday 289

Image
I think my mojo is coming back. Here is a simple card I completed with Mojo Monday 289 sketch




I had found the Basic Grey Fiction 6x6 at Joanns for $.97 and I couldn't pass it up, so I pulled it out and used it for this sketch. I pulled out some old stamps never used and a vellum quote pack.

Last night my grandson asked to make a card for his class mate who's birthday is today so I went and looked for a sketch challenge and found Pals Paper Arts and participated

I used my Cameo to cut the dino and the paper pack I used was Hello Spaceboy by Prima. I had found the EK Success dino punch awhile back and was happy to be able to use it for this card.



I am pleased at this simple card.
