Well, here's my take on the Sketch this week. Yes, I flipped it - only because my picture warranted a flip - I don't usually flip sketches...but it was kind of fun! :)

It was my turn to do one of the challenges at SnS this month (September) so here it is. Mine is a Word Challenge - you have to use a particular word in your title. This month's word is FUN!! :)
Here's my layout!! :) If you haven't checked out SNS should. It's just a small board with a fun bunch of gals who have a ton of talent!!! :) C'mon over and play!!!

Here's this week's sketch from Creative Scrappers. Check out their blog to see the fabulous DT takes on this one. They have some talent on that team:
Watch for my take later in the week!

Just a quick one this morning....I stamped a couple of images for Brayden too and we spent a little time together coloring this morning. Too fun!! :)

Whipped up this little mini backpack album this afternoon! It was a quick little project and if you're interested, you can find the tutorial here:
The instructions are excellent and I thought it would make a cute little gift to welcome Brayden's teacher back to the school year.
Ribbons are from the September Ribbon Kit at Savvy n Sassy!! Make sure if you make one of these you link me back to your project!!! I'd love to see it!! :)

Still playing with my Magnolias!! I'm just lovin' these stamps! :) Soooo fun!!

Spotlight Special at SNS this week.....

This week at Savvy N Sassy the spotlight special includes all the Shimmerz paints and products from Imaginisce. I made this little guy using those products. Shimmerz is really hard to see "online" but it looks sooo cute IRL. I even painted this little guys toenails with Magenta shimmerz. The ribbon is also from the September Ribbon Kit. It's a gorgeous collection this month....loads of beautiful browns!! I just may have to get another one!! :)

I'm having sooo much fun playing with these little guys. They are just the cutest images!! :)
Ribbon is from the Savvy n' Sassy September Kit. It's just a beautiful kit - full of beautiful brown ribbon and ric rac. The colors are gorgeous. I'll have more projects in a few more days! :)

Well here's my take on the sketch...I'm not real thrilled with this one...but hey, it's done!! :)

Here's a little card I made using Alva! I just think she's so cute. I was trying a couple of different techniques with the copics and wasn't really happy how she turned out - but I still think she's cute, so I couldn't bear to throw her away!! These images are just sooo fun. I ordered a few more and they have shipped, so should be here next week sometime. I can't wait to play!!! :)
Hope everyone is having a great weekend...thanks for stopping by! :)

A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this challenge site called Creative Scrappers. Every week (on Sunday) they upload a sketch and you have the week to complete it and load your entry. The sketches have been fabulous - but even moreso is what their fabulous design team does with these things. I swear I love every layout they come up with each week. They are INCREDIBLE!!!! I'm not even a real "sketch" kinda gal...but these ladies are inspiring!!! Have a look!!

Amazing stuff. I have posted this week's sketch incase you want to play along. I'll have mine up later in the week!! :)

Still playing tonight!! Picked up this cute little digi freebie at The Digi Shack tonight. Grab it while you can - it won't be there long!!

My take on the Creative Scrappers Sketch #63 and also my entry to stay in the "BIG SCRAPPER HOUSE" this week at LP!!

We've had some accidents this year with Brayden, so when I look at pictures like these they make me happy but frightened at the same time. My journaling reads "Brayden...we've had our fair share of close calls this year. I know you love speed, but please....."B" CAREFUL!"

Here are some projects I did with my August ribbon kits from Savvy n Sassy.
