"Scrappy Monday" Sketch challenge!

Hello Everyone,

Well Emma has another Scrappy Monday Sketch Challenge. I have wanted to scrapbook this picture forever, it is of my 2 1/2 year old holding his newborn brother in the hospital the day after he was born. (Emma's last Scrappy Monday I created an 8 x 8 layout of my 5 year old holding his brother same baby same day it was July 4, 1989) My girlfriend was so kind to snap these pictures. I used the Paper Studio 8 x 8 Baby Boy Collection. I used some of the die cuts from the collection. I also used some nestabilities and punches. The clipboard is a cricut cut.
Here is my 8 x 8 layout:

Sorry the pic is a little dark. Not so in person I just couldn't get a good picture. If you see arms in the picture it is my husband helping. All I have to do is journal and this page is complete.  I am lovin these challenges, thanks Emma.

Here is the sketch:

Have a fabulous day,

Hello Everyone,

It is time again for a challenge over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog

Don't Bug me
Create a project using some sort of bug! 
Remember it must contain 1 cricut cut.

For my project I created this Flip flop card also known as a swing card. I found the directions for this at Splitcoaststampers.            

Here is my project:

Cute as a bug was cut 3" and from Just Because cards.I also used the lacey oval die from nestibilities and and edge punch from Stampin' up.  This is what you see on front.

Throwback Thursday

Hello Everyone,

I am entering Emma's Throwback Challenge 

Here are the details for her challenge:
~ Must make an altered item using your Cricut cuts!
~Must use any OLDER Cartridge of YOUR choice
~ Deadline for this challenge is June 6th @ midnight PST

I altered a wooden frame. Here is what it looked like before I began:
First I painted it with gesso then a coat of  vintage white. I used my gypsy to cut out the pattern paper. I used 2 squares from George and basic shapes. Then I used Fancy Frames  and cut out the black frame I used on the pattern paper. I cut it out at 4.75 on the height and 6.75 for the width. I had to take the aspect ratio link off to achieve that size to fit the fame nice. I just love this cartridge. Finished it off with some prima flowers, Emma rolled flower die, pearls, distressing and leaf found in Create a Critter. Also distressing is done with black
