Time Flies

 I was so excited when April at Through the Vine Designs said that she was going to feature my layout on her Facebook page and in her Newsletter this month!!! She has a great little store and I had just received my order from her with the Basic Grey Hopscotch paper and some fabulous ribbon!!! I used the sketch from Page Maps she had posted in her Newsletter last month to create this layout. I absolutely loved working with the Hopscotch paper and stickers!!!! They have so many possibilities!!

 The pictures I used are some I came across in my piles of photos to scrap. They are of Azelyn a couple of Springs ago, she was outside picking some of the first dandelions we had. She seems so little in these photos, she is growing up way too fast!!!!!

I am entering this in Scrap and Stamp's Love challenge, and Basic Grey's Heart challenge.

Products used:
BG Hopscotch paper, stickers and brads.
American Craft Ribbon
CTMH ink, cs, stamps (Just the Ticket, Code It, and Checklist)
random flowers
white uniball pen
SU punch

Here are a few close ups.

I'm not sure who I will give this too but it's always nice to have some extra cards just in case.

Products used:

Stamp:Kraftin' Kimmie, BG Curio dp, CTMH cs, liquid glass, ink and ribbon, Neenah cs, Momento ink, copics, boweasy, and spellbinders. The flowers are from my LSS.

Fishin' You a Great Day!!

 I made this card for my Father in Law's birthday. He is quite the fisherman so I thought he would get a kick out of this image. I'm entering this in Kraftin' Kimmie's challenge #63- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle (all of the paper was put of my scrap bins, including the base of the card) and Cute Card Thursday's sketch challenge 149. This gives me 2 chances to win some great Kraftin' Kimmie stamps (:

 Because the paper is from my scraps, I'm not sure what kind it is? I used Neenah cs to stamp my image and sentiment on. All of the embellishments, except for the bobber, are CTMH. I used copics to colour my Kraftin' Kimmie image (his name is Curtis), and my spellbinders to cut him out.
