This layout is the first I have done in almost a year. I love it!! The first page is for the sketch challenge over at Creative Scrappers mentioned below. I created the second page because I always have so many usable shots from an occasion or event.

Everything I used has been in my stash for over a year. This is why I am entering it in the challenge over at Lasting Memories. The title sticker has been in my stash for over two years. All patterned paper is from the Tahiti Beach stack from DCWV. I got this stack on super duper clearance at JoAnnes' late 2011. The netting I used in the circle was bought last year at the Scrapbook Expo.

I cut the water splash from Everyday Paper Dolls cricut cartridge. The frames for the pictures were cut from the fancy Frames cricut cartridge.

  I am entering this at the following challenges.

Create A Critter - Owl Happy Bird-Day card!

I created this cute card for my adorably sweet niece, Jacey. She loves owls so I hope she likes this card.

I cut the card, mat and banner from CTMH- Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. I used bakers twine from CTMH for the banner. The paper I used for the card is from The Celebration stack from DCWV and the mat is random glittered card stock. I like to put my sentiments inside the card which is what I did.

The sentiment is from the Turkeys2stamp set and the owl is from postage2stamp. Both sets are from The Stamps of Life.

I linked up my cute little easter Baskets on Exploring Cricut's "Happy Easter" challenge. I was thrilled to find out I won the challenge and super shocked when I got my BOX, yes I said BOX full of prizes. The quick email responses, communication, speedy shipping and the BOX of prizes makes this one of the best blogger world experiences ever. 

After reading a recent post on Exploring Cricut, I have learned that Diane sponsors all the challenegs herself. WOW!! Diane, you are truly amazing AND THANK YOU!!

CTMH acrylic stamps, Queen&Co felt EasterEgg border and Felt Flowers, 1 POUND of Bazzil card stock, Studio G glitter glue, About A girl tags and titles, Rub Ons, StuidoG and SnagEm' individual stamps, clear back stickers from American Arts, and FancyPants tags.

April Showers - Card with Umbrella

I made the following card for my mother in law. I haven't seen her in a while so the sentiment from "Stamps Of Life by Stephanie Barnard" was so appropriate.  I used plain cardstock that I misted with Perfect Pearls Mists in mint and I distressed the edges with Jim Holtz Distress Ink in peacock feathers. The patterned paper is from DCWV the Whimsy Stack and the umbrella was cut from Cricut Alphabet.

I entered this card in the following Challenges.

Some Bunny loves You card

This is an Easter card I created for each of my nephews.
The bunny was cut from Create A Critter 2 cartridge using my Expression2. I accented his eyes and whiskers using purple Stickles. I love glitter! The grass was fussy cut and laid ontop of paper from the DCWV Whimsy Stack. I used some CTMH twine  and Martha Stewart pearls for embellishments.
