Cocoa Daisy Sketch

I hadn't done one of these before...not sure why since I love using sketches and I love Cocoa Daisy...but I found the time this month!  It is one of my favorite layouts I have done in a long time!  I love how the Basic Grey papers worked and the flowers I learned how to make at CKC just make the layout for me!
Here's Christine's sketch:

And my layout:

Scrapdango March Reveal!

Here are some layouts and cards I made with this amazing kit!  Love the yummy Jillibean!  I have a lot left and am hoping to get a few more done this week!

A layout of my son and his cousin.  They are just 6 weeks apart.  This is an old photo...they were not quite 3 and they are 6 1/2 now!

I loved the numbered patterned paper and knew I wanted to use it to do a sequenced layout.  This is my son last summer.  The lady we were camping with completely convince him that he was making bread by crushing these seeds, adding water and making an oven with tinfoil in the fire!  Then she would add a piece of muffin and he would have bread!

Last night, after scrapping most of the day, I made these really simple cards!  I love these birdhouses!

January and a Turtle

I did a few more layouts with my February Scrapdango Kit this week.  The first is from a Becky Fleck pagemap that was for Scrapbook and Cards Today's Project 12.  I was a little bit late to get it in the drawing but at least I got it done!
Here is my January Project 12 layout.
This is a layout about a turtle.  That's right, a turtle!  Last spring break one of Tadd's co-teachers was going out of town and asked if we wanted Razmo for a week.  The kids had a ton of fun with the turtle!  Go figure...we have a dog! :)  I've had these pictures sitting on my desk for a long time and never had the right stuff.  I loved this month's papers with the turtle!

Punky Sprouts Sneak!

I turned in my first assignment for Punky Sprouts today.  What a fun little album to work with!  It was so fun to be working on chipboard and then canvas and then throw in a little acrylic!  The album I was given to design with was the Savvy Sprout.  I decided to do a collection of random photos of Erin from 2009.  I just adore how it turned out!  Here is a little sneak!  I'll share the rest later this week!

Scrapdango Kit Reveal!

I got to work with the Spice kit this month and WOW did I love it!  This color combo has got to be one of my all time favorites!  I loved all the patterns in the paper and couldn't stop playing with them!  I'll have more up later this week too!


In other Scrapdango news: We have a new owner at Scrapdango.  She's not new to Scrapdango though, she was my co-leader of the design team there.
