All the patterned papers I used were from DCWV stacks. I cut the beach umbrella, chair and sand from the Paper Dolls-Every Day cartridge. The chair actually flips up and that is where I have my journaling.  I used mesh and brads that I got at the scrapbook expo last year. I stamped the starfish and waves using CTMH - Under the sea stamps. The waves are accented using smooch accent ink and a Stella glitter pen (which I got new at Scrap A doodle Do).
The title is the title of a DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince song named Summertime which is a requirement to enter in the Stamp It with a song challenge at LMCB.

As usual I have so many pictures from that day, that I created a second page. It even has an empty spot for a picture I know exists but I can't find it.

Birthday Flowers

This card was created using the gypsy and  the Simply charmed and CTMH Art Philosophy cartridges.The flower pot was welded from a rectangle and a drink. The tag for the message in the card was cut from CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.
I punched the flowers using a Ms punch. I added Ms pearls and some ink accents. I inked the purple cardstock and sentiment cut out with lavendar chalk.

The sentiment is from Docerela Creations.

I sure hope my sister loves this card!!

Up for the Challenge

Since this is National Scrapbooking Month I tried to do a layout every day. But then my job kept interfering with the time I got home at night so I am a week or so behind. Here is the 8th layout I created this month but the first I am posting.

I was inspired by the challenge at Lasting Memories Challenge Blog, "inspired by a TV show". So I looked through my photos of 2012 to see if any of them reminded me of a TV show and here is what I came up with.

This has been entered in the following challenge

Mother's Day card

Here is a mother's day card I created using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge from Cricut. The card, the roses and the embellishment are all cut on my cricut.
The patterned paper has been in my stash for almost two years so I am not sure what manufacturer it is. The pink pearls in the flowers are from Martha Stewart. The sentiment is from Docerela Creations.

This will be entered in the challenges linked here.

Snow Much Fun Layouts for 2012

Yes I am way behind in my yearly scrapbooks, but I am comitted to finishing the 12 months of 2012 and moving on to 2013. So here is a layout about January 2012.
The papers I used are from a scrapbooking kit from Papers Pizzazz that "Santa" brought me.
The snowflakes are a Marth Stewart punch from glittered card stock in my stash. I cut the title using the Cricut Winter Frolic cartridge. I accented it with glitter and also some snow.
As usual I have many pictures from this day so I made it a two page layout.

The first page was my take on the sketch at I entered the Sketch Challenge #2.
