I'm Back....I Think!

I took a bit of a break. A lot of stuff going on in my life at the same time. I just didn't have time to craft as much as I would have liked. But I think I'm back and ready to get back in to the swing of crafting.

I have created layouts of my grand babies to hang on my living room wall. I finally got my youngest grand daughter Laila's done. Not bad, only took me 6 months...LOL.

A few close ups

I cut the bird from chipboard and inked it with a few different colors, then added some Stickles.

I cut the border using the Demask Decor Cricut cartridge. I used the same technique on it as the bird. Also adding some pearls.

of course I had to include some beautiful Prima flowers.

And lastly, I used rub-ons to create the title. This is something I did on all five layouts.

So there it is! Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. Hopefully my next post will come soon.

Catch the Wave

Every month I create the sketch for the monthly sketch challenge for the yahoo group Scrappin-N-Chattin. I thought I would share it with y'all this month and the layout I created using it.

the sketch

my take

I used Webster's Pages Yacht Club kit that I had won in one of the previous monthly challenges at SNC.  I love the light house, and fussy cut it from one of the sheets of paper in the kit.

That's my fun loving mom in the pictures. Let me tell you, us kids don't have nothing on her! Even in her 70's she tries to keep up with the great grand kids. She was using one of their boogie boards to catch the waves.

We would love to have you come join us at Scrappin-N-Chattin, there are many monthly challenges, prizes, and TONS of chatting.

Note: If you are not a member of SNC and you use my sketch, please give credit where credit is due.

Thanks for stopping by!
