BIC #53

The Alley Way Stamps' BE Inspired Challenge (BIC #53) caught my eye again. Here's the inspiration photo:

And here's my card:

I inked up one of the border stamps from "Bitty Borders" with Memento dye inks in the colors of the rainbow. Easy, right?

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Girls - Sketch Challenge

I'm hosting the current challenge at The Paper Girls Challenge Blog, I hope you'll come over and play along! You've still got until Saturday May 31st to link up your project.

Use this SKETCH to create a paper crafting project - layout, card, mixed media canvas, whatever you'd like:

Here's my layout. When my daughter was 3 she was actually brave enough to go on this huge slide with her dad - TWICE! 

That background paper looks like sand, don't you think? And I really enjoyed layering some stickers and flair buttons at the bottom. A fun layout calls for some fun embellishments, for sure!

So what are you waiting for? Use my sketch and come link up your project - there's a prize for a random participant!

Is that a Lion?

Last month we went on a beach vacation to Cabo… what a great way to relax for a few days. Anyways, check out this crazy picture with a lion cub, I couldn't wait to scrap it.

My layout:

I'm entering this layout into the following challenges:

Stash Challenge #14 at Scrap Our Stash
  1. Something Old: Crate Paper "Random" collection - button, brads, die cuts, rosette have all been in my stash for about 2 years.
  2. Something New: Glitz patterned papers (anchors and polka dot) have only been in my stash 2 months
  3. Something Fussy Cut: The flowers were part of a pre-made die cut, but the whole flower bunch was too large for what I wanted, so I fussy cut around the flowers I wanted to keep. 
  4. Something Blue: Blue Carta Bella patterned paper

Daisy #2 sketch over at

Scrappy Friends' challenges:

Rochelle's Tic Tac Toe challenge (I used enamel dots, leaves, and a doily die cut - hope that counts!)
Still time to join in all of the challenges except for the Daisy 2 sketch, that one's from a couple weeks ago, I just didn't get it up on the blog until now.
