Page Maps/My Little Shoebox Sketch Contest

This is the only layout I have completed lately. :)
We are moving in a few weeks and the time has come to pack up my
scrapbooking supplies for a little while, which is sad, but I am very excited to
unpack them into my scrapbooking room!!!
This layout was done for a contest that I found on the Page Maps blog. The person who wins gets free My Little Shoebox papers, chipboard, etc. Their stuff is super cute, so I thought I better try it out. Loved the sketch by Becky of Page Maps - it was a fun one!

I used some fun Cosmo Cricket papers that my friend Becky brought me - - isn't she so nice?! They were perfect! Thanks Becky! :) Also used some SEI buttons, CTMH brads, die cut from the New Arrival Cricut cartridge, and Senic Route graph patterned paper.

My sweet baby boy

I've been doing a couple of layouts lately of my son when he was a baby......It's crazy how fast they grow up! I still like to sneak in on him and watch him while he is sleeping though! ;)

The first Layout was made with sketch #22 at 52 weeks. Still love her sketches, the summer schedule has made it hard to keep up with them every week!
This next one I made up using an older CTMH line. I got this one when I first became a consultant three years ago, but it is the only beach/swim themed paper I had around.
Didn't he have the greatest little swim body!

Have a good day! :)

June Cards

These are the cards for my June Card workshop that I am holding this week. It will be my final card night before we move. I have been doing this for over two years now, and I will really miss some of the good friends I have made through these workshops.
Thanks to all of those who have come and
supported me over the last two years!!!

This month I used the new Animal Cookies paper from Close To My Heart. It was so fun to work with! I usually don't go for the brighter, primary colors, but I loved this paper! The patterned polka dots are so cute!
I also used the new stamp set "You're a hoot!" - the owls in this set are adorable!- as well as the Good times stamp set, Family Ties children Stamp set, and various alphabet stamps.
Thanks for stopping by! :)

A quick and easy layout

I was on a mission to put a layout together super quick, which never happens for me!
This was what I came up with:

I thought it turned out cute, and it was a great way to get a page done in a hurry!
This is a card I made using an idea I found in Card Makers Magazine from a long time ago.
I liked the diagonal cut of the patterned paper...just something a little different than the norm!
