So Happy Together

I created this page using Basic Grey's Granola line-I found it at Michaels--lucky to find that there too. I wasn't going to buy it, but then went back and decided I was up for the challenge of scrapping blues. I altered this photo using some tricks that are on "Natalie's Photo Tips" at Creative Scrappers.

BG Urban Prairie---Yippee a BG Toot!!

I just found out that my "Shadow Play" page below was accepted onto the Basic Grey Gallery!! Yip Yip!!

I was absolutely thrilled when I went into Michael's the other day (with a 40% coupon) and found paper slabs of Basic Grey in Urban Prairie and Granola. I only bought the Urban Prairie line, I himmed and hawed about the Granola, but I'm just not that wild about it. I love to get a couple of the other lines and I'm crossing my fingers that M's gets them in. Maybe this week with their 50 off coupon--what a steal!! Here's two pages I created with it so far based off of sketches from Creative Scrappers.

For this page I used Sketch #9 again by Cherie Averill--I love this sketch!
This page I used the new sketch by Allison Cope #17

Wild Thing-Technique Challenge

I created this LO of my nephew for a Technique Challenge at Creative Scrappers. We were to actually punch holes into the picture and ink to create a distressed look. I like the distressed look I ended up with. I used SEI's Madera Island for paper.

Paper Popsicle's September Sketch!

This is the LO I created using the September Sketch for Paper Popsicles. I thought it was a fun sketch with the star. The paper is Cosmo Cricket's Jack's World (yes, again :)) The title is "Pop Pop you are always a star in my eyes"

I created this page for a Monogram challenge over at Paper Popsicles. I used Pink Paislee Pop Fashion line for most of the paper. These pics are of my 2 year old out in Idaho this summer-she insisted on having a turn at feeding baby Lyla her cousin. Sketch by Kristine Davidson
