Crafty Critters Challenge #6

Here is the page I made for our Crafty Critters challenge. We were to use this sketch and make a page about us to our kid (s). I chose to use pictures from our wedding (plus, I don't really have any pictures of just me, so the pickings were slim!)

I use SU Rose Romance and Chocolate Chip papers, some Penny Black DP ans SU Vellum for the journaling. Some "bling" brads are on the bottom of the vellum.

Thanks for looking!

Picnic Time

I created this layout a while back, but am just now sharing it! The theme was green, so I decided to do this picnic theme. It's pretty simple, but I like it. It's hard to see, but the cupcake is highlighted with clear stickles.

A Couple Cards

I guess I've kind of been in a card mode lately. I'm not sure why. I think it's just easier to either have all my card stuff out or all my scrapbook stuff out. Anyhow, here are two more cards I made this last week.

This card was my first try using a digital stamp (free download from http://www.mygrafico.com/index.php?act=viewCat&catId=95&order=lowhigh). Pretty neat. I'm not too happy with this one because the color did bleed a little with the markers. I have since used other images that had smaller outlines and did not have a problem with the markers.
This is a graduation card for my cousin. I'm not real big into the school color thing (hers were black and orange) so I used a coral color and chocolate brown. It's a pretty simple card, but I really liked the DP.

Another Criss Cross Card

I can't believe it's been going on a week since I last posted! Time is flying by. I actually got some craft time in this weekend, so I thought I'd better get some of this stuff posted! So here's the first installment.

I made this card for Tracey's swap. Paper is DCWV spring stack, SU Cameo Coral, Ruby Red & So Saffron. I've used this color combo a couple times in the recent past, and I really like it. Stamps are SU Good Times and PTI Mixed Messages. The flower on the front is accented with clear Stickles.

Thanks for looking!

Frogs & Butterflies

I am so tired, but we're watching a movie and I really want to stay awake for the end so I'm doing double duty and posting while we watch.

I created these 2 layouts for a 12x12 page swap - one frogs, one butterflies. I decided to leave no title on the butterflies page because, well, I just couldn't think of a good one!

Thanks for looking!
