Party On Bud.

Hello and good morning...

Happy Labor Day!!! Hope you are enjoying the long weekend.

Also I want to say a HUGE thanks to all those who leave comments on my blog.. my scrapping has been very scare the last few months. We moved out of state in June. This summer I wanted to play and have fun with the kids, after the move and after several house fix up projects. Crafting has been on the bottom of the list and I miss it... I'm hoping with the new schedule I can be back to it more often.. and hopefully soon too.

Up on the Cards In Envy blog is the latest card challenge to play along with.
The challenge: FOR THE KIDS.

Here is my card for the challenge:



I pulled out some seriously old skool Cosmo Cricket boy papers for this card.. I loved the fun robot and thought it would work perfect:

Smile. - Sept Practical Scrappers Use Your Stash Blog Hop.

Hello and good morning...

Happy Friday!!! YAY for the weekend and a long weekend too.

Welcome to the Sept Practical Scrappers Use Your Stash Blog Hop... You should have arrived here from the wonderful Alison along the hop. If you got lost, you can start at Wendy's blog

I picked out my photo first, and decided to pick some papers afterwards to work with. I pulled an older Echo Park line, Sweet Girl... I actually still had the pack totally unopened (opps). So now was the time to open it up, and break it in.


I added a bit of sewing on the page, but my machine was acting super wonky, so I decided to cover most of it up.. I also added two colors of mist, the pink I sprayed and the teal, I just added splats with:


I decided to go with just a simple easy title, since I wanted to photo to speak on the page:


I also used the Stuck Sept 1 sketch for my layout to play along with.

Now hop on over to the lovely Laura and she what she has crafted this month.

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Just the Girls.... July Practical Scrappers Use Your Stash blog hop..

Hello and good morning...

Happy Friday!!! We are super hot here, so hopefully you are staying cool, we are sure trying to.. 

You should have arrived here from the lovely Lyne on the Practical Scrappers Use Your Stash blog hop... This was the perfect excuse to get me do some scrapping and use what I have that is older.. I've been loving digging into my stash and using it up..

For this layout of me and my two girls, I used an older line from Teresa Collins You Are My Happy.. I looooove this cute line, and perfect for a girlie page too.


I added some layers of embellies from the collection:


And I decided to add some stitching on the page, AFTER my papers and photo were down, something I usually never do, but it worked:


And then added a bit of fussy cutting with the scallops:


I used the Stuck July 15 sketch for this page too.

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!
