A New Design Team!

After my term at A Walk Down Memory Lane ended last May, I decided to stick with just Concroption over the summer and then maybe try for another dt in the fall. After Concroption closed in September, I decided I would go ahead and search some out. I had played in the Crowned competition and then the School's In Challenge over at Scrapdango and really loved the feel of the boards. When the dt call cam up last month, I knew I wanted to try for it. Carrie (the owner) called me on Tuesday to offer me the position. I was thrilled! And to top it off, she asked me to be Co-Leader with Heather! One of the best things about this for me is that Carrie is in Hillsboro and Heather is in Vancouver! I can't wait to meet them in person! I hope it happens soon! :) The other girls on the team are fantastic too! Their blogs are now in my sidebar! Check them out! And don't forget all the fun stuff going on at the Scrapdango message board! We'd love to have you!

End of Soccer

Isaac's first soccer season has officially ended. I have to say I was a little sad to see it end. We loved his coach and all the parents were great as well! Out of all the games, we only had rain during one! Kind of a small miracle here in Oregon! :) Can't wait until next year! I was the parent in charge of the end of the year party. I made 2 cakes for it...WAY overkill! And, because it is what I do, I made each kid and the coach a layout with pictures I took throughout the season! Then I framed them with Dollar Store frames. I liked how they turned out...very simple! I had wanted to find some patterned paper for them but I am glad I didn't...I think it would have been too busy!

Here are the cakes I made:And one of the layouts pre-frame and then one in the frame.

For My Wall

I did these 2 layouts to hang on the wall in our playroom/scrapbook room. I also made them to fit 2 different challenges at Scrapdango. Plus they sort of had to work together AND look good with my blue and orange walls! Let's just say it was harder to do than I thought! :)

This first one was for the November guest designer contest. I had to use something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. My pp is super old. The photo turn and buttons are new. I "borrowed" the idea of the button ring from Heather. And I think you can see the blue!

This one was a dt challenge. Alyssa challenged us to use fussy cutting. I cut the little blue column out of an old patterned paper.
All the pictures are from Isaac's first day of school. Erin wanted in on the action too! The school is such a cool looking school, it made a great backdrop!

Every Other Day?

Looks like I should have said that I would post 2 cards every other day! :) Here are a few more I did for WCMD! I love this first was a scraplift challenge. This was a lift of Kerryn's card and I did it pretty close to hers including the Thank U!

This was a recipe challenge but I can't remember what exactly was in the recipe...I think it was scallops, stamping and bling.

This was for Alyssa's Monochromatic challenge. I love the challenge! I seem to have a lot of green stuff so I went with that!
That is the end of my WCMD cards. I have some layouts to share probably on Monday! I hope you have a great weekend!

Oops...Where did Tuesday go?

I somehow missed yesterday! So here are 2 cards for today! This first one was for Heather's Buttons and Bows challenge, which I think is pretty self explanatory! :) This is a stamp set from Papertrey Ink called Everyday Button Bits. Every stamp has a place for buttons! I love it! They have a new one coming out tonight that is a Holiday Button Bits! Tempting, very tempting!
This card was for Kerryn's Shape Challenge. I made it to use as a little note in Isaac's lunch box. He only eats at school every other Wednesday and last Wed. he was home sick and today is his day off! So it is still here waiting to be used! This was a template I bought and downloaded from Paper Popsicles!

Here's another promised! We'll see if I can make it through the week with this! :) Most of these that I'll post were challenges on the Scrapdango site. I forgot to say yesterday that the Halloween card was doing double duty...make a holiday card and do a Halloween card without any orange, black or purple which wasn't that easy! This card was made for Heather's journal spot challenge. It was to simply use a journal spot on a card! And since I am slightly addicted to journal spots I had plenty to choose from!
See you tomorrow with another card!

A Card a Day!

My goal this week is to post a card a day all week long! It shouldn't be that hard since I made so many on WCMD! Isaac came down with something on Monday and had to stay home from school ALL week so I haven't been able to share them yet! :) I'll start things off with some little monsters because my kids were little monsters after being cooped up all week! :)

Cocoa Daisy World Card Making Day Blog Hop!

Welcome! I hope you are having fun so far on your tour! I have made 3 cards for today. When signing up for the blog hop I asked if there was anything special we needed on our cards. Sue (missusem) said no, but she liked my pun cards. Well, that was all I could think of when making these cards today! So, here you go Sue...3 more "punny" cards!

Be sure to leave a comment and I will enter your name in a drawing for a little blog candy. I'm not sure what will be in it...I just decided to do it! But I promise it will be good!
