Vaycay fun!

Happy Sunday and the first day of March if you can believe it!   Wow, it feels like February flew by!    We have a new challenge at Red Carpet Studio today! Yay!

Our inspiration this week is from Public Enemies (I must admit, this is one of the few movies I’ve not seen yet…surprisingly)

So I have a fun vacation layout for you today….

Anyone who knows me, knows that I hoard paper like you wouldn’t believe.  I always find it is so hard to use the cute stuff because you don’t want to cut it apart!  So I hunkered down and got too it.  I used the On the Boardwalk Collection from Graphic 45 which I thought would go great for this beach photo.  The orange dinghy I just cut out with my cricut and for some fun I added some burlap!  I distressed the edges of my pages and inked them up with my distress ink.  All the bits and bobs are just from my stash.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog and see the rest of the great projects we have for you, as well as to enter to win a fabulous prize for this week’s challenge.  I look forward to stopping by your blogs to check out what you create!

Ladies Man!

Hello everyone! I am late posting this due to a very busy weekend on my part. Saturday I had a wonderful time at my crop for NSD!  It was so much fun and I managed to get a few pages done.  Then today I took my son to Heritage Park for their annual A Day out With Thomas and he had such a fun time!!!

Ok….down to work….Our new challenge is up at Red Carpet Studio.  We are basing it on the movie Something Borrowed.

THE CHALLENGE:  Create a project or layout using a “borrowed” sketch from our partner for this challenge “Stick It Down Challenge Blog.”

So, for my challenge I used this sketch of theirs, which I really really liked.

Here is the layout that I created based on the sketch.  I cracked open my Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection from American Crafts, which I won a couple of years ago.  I had forgotten how pretty this collection is and I just love how this layout turned out.  This is my little guy on his first trip to Cuba and the wonderful women that fell in love with him on the plane.

Lucky Me

Well, one of my favorite holidays will be coming up soon.  Yep, St. Patrick’s day…love me the green!! 🙂

It kinda ties in with our new challenge at Red Carpet Studio this week.  Our theme is The Lucky One

The_Lucky_One_Poster

the challenge is to create a project a project that signifies Luck…maybe it’s St. Patrick’s day related, or something that is lucky to you or you feel lucky to have.  Even just something green. 🙂

For me, I always feel that I am truly lucky and blessed to have my son.  I had a miscarriage before him, and thought for sure that I would never have another child and lo and behold, luck was on my side, or providence, God’s grace or whatever you believe…I was blessed with the most amazing little man.

Here is a layout from one our first trips to Cuba with little guy…he was small enough to fit in the suitcase (not that he travelled to Cuba that way! 🙂 )

The DP is from Cloud 9 which I think is called Travel.  All the embellishments and journal stickers are from my stash.  I’ve had them so long I don’t remember anymore where they came from 🙂

I hope you like the layout and please play along with us this week.  We can’t wait to see what you create!
