Artists- Layout 16

When I first saw that the June Challenge at Scrap Our Stash, was to use something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue, I thought "I've got this!" But boy was I wrong! I had the hardest time finishing this challenge. I changed pictures two or three times, pulled apart a layout, and then redid it all! I decided to just go with what I have finished, but I may mess with it some more later!
My something old is the Lime Rickey papers by Basic Grey. Something new is the baker's twine that I received as a RAK. Something borrowed is the layout. I found a sketch in an older CK magazine to follow. Something blue is my background, Glimmer Mist, and ink.

Next month's challenge is to use the colors red, white, and blue. Hopefully that will be a little easier! Happy crafting!

Quick and Easy Father's Day card

I made this card late last night, thinking that I needed to go ahead and make my dad a card so I can mail it to him. I am not usually a card maker, especially masculine ones. So I stuck with safe colors and a simple design. I used Street Sign for the letters and the printed paper is from Hobby Lobby. You can't see it in the picture, but the edges are distressed. I outlined the card and added some brads before I attached the card front. Easy peasy! Happy crafting!

Projects that are on my desk!

Whew! After a week on vacation, it's taken me a week to get back into the swing of things.

Here is what should be coming up soon for you.

This month's challenge at Scrap Your Stash is to use "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue." It doesn't have to be wedding, or you don't have to use all the "somethings". If you would like to use up some of your stash and play along, check it out at Scrap Your Stash

Also my friend Caitlynsmommy (from the Cricut Messageboard) has a birthday this month, so her project is on my desk and almost finished! I can't wait to share this one with you. It is a first for me.

Caitlynsmommy also inspired me to make a badge holder mini book. She started a swap and I thought "Now why didn't I think of that!!" So I headed to Hobby Lobby and found some badge holders. A few scraps and it's almost finished too! I just need a theme to go with it!

And since I just got back from vacation, I have over 200 photos to scrap! I took lots of photos of the boys and I can't wait to show you some of the great photos my new Nikon took!

Ok, lots to get to! Happy crafting!
