Washi Washi, I used Washi!!!

So, below I have a card that I created for 2 challenges. The first one being Sweetest Thing blog. Isn't the little birdie so cute? Even though this was a single layer card, I still love it! I sometimes feel like, if I don't add 2 or 3 layers to a card, It looks nekkid(naked) but this one I really really love! The 2nd. challenge was to use Washi on a creation over at The "Simply less is more" Blog. Well, That was an easy one. I only have a gazallion rolls of Washi. So this was a really really fun project for me. You see, I do have a gazillion rolls of washi in every color and pattern imaginable and I really like the stuff but I never know when to use it. Does anyone else have that problem? I guess I need to find more challenges that include using Washi, LOL! So, with that being said, I have to go and get ready for the first day of school tomorrow, Booooo!!! This summer just flew by, Can it be July again? Ok, well have a great rest of the week and I will see you all real soon!

Oh my goodness, A scrap book layout

Happy Friday everyone, I have been a busy little bee lately with my papers and Ink. I am so excited to share with you all, A scrapbook layout that I completed today. When I saw this sketch on Sketchabilities,I was like, omg,  I gotta play! I had the perfect picture for it! This is our "baby" Cooper! My husband and I always argue on who loves the baby more. LOL! That's what we refer to him as, "The Baby"
So, the photo I used is one that we took of Coop at the park. He loves to fetch the ball and bring it back to us for a treat(he is very food motivated) well, he had been going back and forth for quiet a while and so he was taking a breather and I caught this smile on his face. Is he not adorable or what? I could create 100 scrapbook pages with just photos of "The Baby" but I wont bore you with anymore Cooper stories, Instead, I will leave you with this layout that I did following the sketch from Sketchabilities. I really, really like how this page turned out. What do you think? Drop me a message and let me know you were here! Have a great weekend my friends and I will see you all real soon!

All of the supplies that I used on this layout were totally random everything in my stash except for the glitter paws, those are Jollees. All of the circle paws, I used my circle punch and punched them from a piece of scrapbook paper.

Sweet Sketch and it's Wednesday!!!


Hello Friends. I am going to make this a quick post to share another challenge card that I created. I have been a busy little bee with the challenges and I want to get another one started. I think maybe a 12X12 scrapbook layout. It has been a while since I have done any scrap booking and I really want to get some done, so we shall see. For the time being, Here I have a sketch that I did from "Sweet Sketch Wednesday" This, for some reason was a difficult challenge for me. I think it is because of the designer papers that I used. I don't know why, but I had a hard time matching them up with card stock. That sounds really odd but it's all I can figure, LOL! . I love this image that I used(gorjuss Girls). It has been a long time since I had colored in an image and used it on my creation so I took a little time to shade her in with my Copics. I did also use Spicas on the flower to add a little sparkle cause I ♥ sparkle!
I will see you all real soon with some more paper goodness!!

Mojo Monday-Circle or Square

Hello all, Well here I am with another sketch challenge. This one is from Mojo Monday and I had a choice of either a square card or a round one.
So, below is what I came up with. 
The one thing that I really Really like about this creation and you can barely see it in the photo is I heat embossed the sentiment. I am lovin the heat embossing right now. I really really like the look of it. It always adds a little something to a finished product! So ladies and Gents, It is time for me to get to working on some more challenges. I wanna keep the mojo movin!!
Below you will find the recipe for this creation. Have a great night and I will be back real soon to share another creation!
