MWM - Carnation 10

Happy Monday!

I am celebrating a scrappy success, it has been a long time since I have successfully completed a Mid Week Mojo series! I am feeling accomplished and my albums are starting to come together, I need to keep this up :)

Here is my take on the Carnation 10 sketch:
This sweet girl lost another tooth and was so excited for the tooth fairy. I just went to a Creating Keepsakes Convention in Tacoma, WA this weekend and they gave us this adorable paper by Fawn Lawn when we arrived to the crop. I paired the paper with a little gold accents (Washi and sequins), then added a matching title from Thickers and Simple Stories word stickers (both I got from Scrapbook Steals).

Here is the actual sketch:

PGCB #92 - Winter Sports


It is so cold here in Washington today, it feels like we might get snow (eeeek)! I can only hope...I love snow and all the super fun things that come with it; like sweaters, warm drinks, and of course winter sports! I grew up in a resort town in Utah, so skiing, sledding, ice skating, and snowshoeing was part of our winter life and something we looked forward to once the first flake fell from the sky :)

The Paper Girls are challenging us to create a project around winter sports. This was a golden opportunity for me to finally get some old pictures printed and documented.

I used Echo Park's Winter Park collection to get my kids first sledding pictures on paper. The chipboard snowflakes are from Freckled Fawn and sprayed with Mr. Huey's and October Afternoon spray inks. The sketch is from and their current Flash Back Friday challenge.

We hope that you will link up your winter sport projects to the Paper Girls Challenge blog. And better yet, you get an extra week to participate because there are three Mondays in Novemeber, so projects are not due until Dec. 5th.

Stay warm,

MWM - Carnation #8

Hello, and happy Monday! has another great sketch as part of the Carnation series this week! I loved that they used the 2x2 intasquares from Simple Stories...I have so many left over from projects I've created, so I was very inspired to incorporate them into my layout. Here is what I came up with:

My husband and I just celebrated our 11 year anniversary, and although we are not really "blingy" people, I love all the just scream celebration to me :) The journaling cards, instasquares, and the majority of the embellishments are from Simple Stories Gold SN@P! pack. I added a little extra gold bling and candi too :)

And here is the sketch:

PGCB - #91 Stamps

Good morning!

I am playing along with the Paper Girls this morning for Amber's challenge to use stamps on a project.

Here is my card:
This simple little card came together fairly quickly. The stamps I used are from Fawn Lawn On the Mend, I stamped them in Tuxedo Black Momento ink and then colored in with my ink pads and a blending brush. I added a little sparkle to the center with a glitter pen.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you will join us and link up a project showcasing a stamped image before 11:55pm on Saturday, 11/28. 

Thank you!
