Sketch Inspiration

Hello my friends, Today I am sharing something different with you all. I really have every intention on catching up on my scrapbooking. I have been married almost a year and This is only the 2ND. page I have finished. Isn't that terrible? LOL! Well, For this layout I used a sketch from a wonderfully inspirational site called Sketch Inspiration.

Take a look at the sketch above. Isn't it just fun? Well, as you can tell, my Wedding colors were Brown/Pink & Ivory so that is the reason for my color scheme. I also used my oh so wonderful and just beautiful Glimmer mist in "Tattered Leather" & "Cadillac Pink" on the flowers. Oh how I love the Glimmer Mists. messy but sooooooo much fun!! I added silver brads to the middles of each of the flowers. Sketch Inspiration has a different sketch challenge every week so I am going to try and make it a point to complete at least one page a week. I don't think I can do anymore than that so One a week will be good! So, Let me know what you think, I love to hear my friends comments!!

Hello Dolls, It's Saturday night and I am doing what I totally love to do on a Saturday night(well besides going out on a date with my hubby) I'm playing! We have had a few yucky weather days so it has been nice to be indoors creating. As long as it's decent weather out tomorrow so hubby and I can got to the flea Market. We love love love the flea market. I find so many awesome Scrapbooking and stamping items there. Also, I love Vintage home deco stuff. Anything that can be spray painted or sanded or altered in any way to become a decorative piece in my home, then I am all for it! So, onto my challenge card. This one I did for 2 Challenges. The first being the one and only, Friday Sketchers. I always love they're sketches. This one was a real challenge for me but that's what it's all about, right?

The following items were used to complete this creation! Summer sun, Pink Passion,Taken with teal and white card stock. DP by Scenic Route and 6X6 Delovely pad from Cosmo Cricket. Stamp: Flower Power by Elizabeth Bell For SCACD and sentiment from Short & Sweet by Stampin Up! I also used Spica pens on the flowers on her jeans and Mulberry paper mini roses from Recollections.

The image I used is KiKi LaRue from C.C. Designs. Isnt she just adorable? I colored her in with my copics and I added some Bling for her necklace.

Now for the 2nd. challenge. A color challenge from ColorQ I just found this challenge blog and already love it not to mention, The inspiration was really helpful! Arent they the most prettiest colors?
For the sentiment, "Thinking Of You" That is from The stamps of life "Flowers2share" from The stamps of life"
So, there you have it. Another creation from Me! I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy creating them! Well, I am off to play some more so I hope to see you all again real soon!!


I embossed all of the pieces in this sketch with different embossing folders. I used very little DP and the DP I did use is from a 6X6 Stampin Up! Stack in Concord Crush which is on the main panel of the A2 size card.

CPS-Card Sketch



Happy Wednesday all, I am here to share with you all a sketch challenge from CPS- Card Sketches.
It is time to start creating for Easter. Right now, Here in Northern Calif. It doesn't feel like Spring. We have had some hard hitting rain. You would think it was in the dead of winter. Although I do love this kind of weather, Sunshine every now and then would be a good thing.
For my creation, The image I used, I haven't the slightest idea who makes this image. It has a signature but I cant make it out, so if you know who this is made by, Please let me know. The DP I used on this is from Echo Park Paper Co. and is called Sweet Argyle. The "So Eggcited" sentiment is from bunny4Easter from The stamps of life.


I hope you enjoy my creation and please, let me know you stopped by!


See you all real soon!!

Some color and a sketch!

Hello all my creative friends! I am so excited. I completed 2 more challenges and for some reason, these were pretty challenging for me. The first challenge is from "Paper Romance" and that challenge was to use lots and lots of color. I knew exactly which DP I was going to use. my "DeLovely" 6X6 mini deck. I used 4 different prints. with 3 of the pieces, I cut them out using my nestabilities. The 4th. was the striped main background piece. For my image, I used a Stamping Bella, Mismatched Ketto. The 2nd. challenge is from Create4fun


I colored in my image with my Copics. My sentiment is on a punched oval (Wish Big)and this is the best part, You can barely see but I attached the sentiment with a paper tagger. I have never used it and I was totally excited to finally use it. I know, silly but for me, I was uber excited! It doesnt take me much, hehehe!
My card stock colors are Yoyo yellow, bashful blue,bucharoo blue,Gable green and smooth white.

Happy Spring Friends!

Once again, I have been MIA except, I do have have something to share with you all tonight. I entered this creation into 2 challenges. The first one is for Color Throwdown. I always like they're challenges. The colors are I dont have Daffodil Delight, so I used So Saffron. Now, The sketch Challenge is from CPS-Card Sketches


Now this was fairly easy and I am glad because I am feelin a little rusty, LOL! The "Happy Spring" stamp is from Stampendous. I colord in the word "Spring" with misc. gelly pens. I love the glittery ones! I punched the row of daisies out with a Martha Stewart Punch. I also inked the edges of the white card stock with Ditress ink in blue.


There you have it. 2 Callenges for you all. Let me know what you think! I love to hear your comments!!



Until next time, Happy Creating!!!
