Beach Babe

Following sketch #227 from Creative Scrappers, and #107 prompt  from Lasting Memories, which is to use ribbon, lace and pink. This is what I came up with.

I probably should have waited to take the picture of it in the morning, as the lighting is really poor. But I was afraid something would happen and I would forget about it and not enter the challenges.

A couple times a year here along the Texas gulf coast, the seaweed comes ashore in bucket loads. I think it is smelly and gross, but my grand daughter Kalista was so intrigued with it and thought it was the neatest stuff to play with. She would pick it up by the hands full and just walk all around with it. More than a few times, she tried to hand me some....ewwwww!  LOL

I'm Surviving

It is day 5 after surgery, and I think I may survive. The doctor told me it would be a rough couple of weeks...he was not lying!  It has been up and down. Feeling good one minute and down and out the next.

I'm hoping to get creative tomorrow. I'm having scrappy withdraws....LOL Pin It

First Day

A bit ago, I announced that I had been chosen to join the Design Team over at Nuts About Sketches. I was excited and really looked forward to joining the team. However, shortly after, I found out I was going to have two major surgical procedures that would result in me not being able to fulfill my commitments. Sadly, I had to decline the position. *pouting*. I'm excited that I got a chance to at least play along with them this week.

The girls over at NAS rocked the sketch. Be sure to head over there and check them out.

When I first seen this picture of my grand daughter Rachel, the title for the layout came right to my.

The Popsicle is a chip board embellie from the Splash collection by Little Yellow Bicycle. The pickle I made in Inkscape and cut it on the Cricut.


I followed Creative Scrappers sketch #224. The new challenge blog Cut it Up  is having their very first challenge, which is anything goes. but you must use a die cut on your project. I also incorporated this weeks prompt at Frosted Designs, which is to use a journal card.

Subway Art

I needed something for one of the walls in my crafty space, and I have seen subway art everywhere lately. So I thought I would make something for my space. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out, and it was so easy to make. Now to get it  hung.

As you can see, I love red. It is in almost every room in my house.

I'm linking up to The 36th Avenue

A Walk With Daddy

I finally put down some of my other project to scrap a bit today. I really like it. It's nothing fancy, just a quick page.

Thanks for stopping by!
