Easter Inspirations

I have always loved Easter for it's true meaning, but also for the fun of Easter baskets, egg hunts and yummy chocolate bunnies!  Over at the Pebbles, Inc. blog you can find some wonderful Easter projects that some of the design team girls have been working on.  I made this little basket using Pebbles, Inc. new line "May Bouquet".  The little template is from "Hot Off the Press".  I am sorry to say those cute little chocolate carrots that are in the basket, are no longer with us.  :)

Thanks for looking, and if I don't mention it again.  Happy Easter everyone!

Great New Challenge Site "Lift This"

I was honored when Nicole LeBlanc asked to use one of my lo's for their new site.  It's about digital scrapbooking, and no I don't do it.  If I did, you'd know why I "don't", lol.  I need help just getting through Photoshop!  However, I have to say I admire those that can do digital scrapping.  This site is so cool because their inspiration comes from paper lo's that have dimension, and then they try to recreate that look in a digital lo.  I won't bore you with showing you my lo because if you follow my blog you've seen my lo "dream".  However, if you have "not" seen their fabulous creations, please hop on over to their site to see their take on my lo.  Also it's a great site, if you'd like to have a go at digital scrapping or for inspiration! 

Check it out Lift This.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

It's a beautiful day here!!  Thank goodness because yesterday it was raining, and today I plan to take the monkey to the zoo.  He's on spring break this week from school, so we're meeting up with friends and headin out.  Hope to get some good pics - that is if Hayden will ever stay still.  His best friend is going with us, and when they get together there is no controlling the excitement!   Have a great one my friends.  Happy St. Paddy's Day to you, and here's a big "PINCH" if you're not wearing green!!

Nikki Sivils "Bella Blue & Oscar Too"

This my brother and sister-in-law's doggy.  He's is darn cute, but when they visited he tee-tee'd on a topiary tree in my house, lol.  I wasn't mad.  I think it's kind of funny.  Hey, it was a tree, right?

A Million Memories March Challenge

This is based on a sketch by Rachel Hall.  You are supposed to use lyrics to a song somewhere on your lo.  If you can find them in mine, then maybe this will qualify.  If not, then.... well, pooh on me for forgetting!  Here is my lo for their challenge.  It was fun playing along even if it doesn't qualify!  If you want to play along, check it out here -  A Million Memories website.

Here is Rachel's sketch below.

We just had a 3 way mfg. blog crawl between Nikki Sivils, Bella Blvd and Jillibean Soup this weekend.  It was fun and wild.  Posts were flying about like crazy!!  There were some amazing prizes and some really fantastic items that the design team girls made to be given away!

Whew, that was crazy!  I tried random.org - it only goes to 100!  I reverted to closing my eyes and moving the cursor up and down to land on someone!  My winner for my dress form below is Ramona aka Paper Princess.  Romona please contact me at my email address (it is linked up on the side at my blog) to give me your mailing address!

You can see my post below of the crawl to see what Ramona won!

Twisted Sketch No 39 is Up!!

The twist this week was to use fabric on your lo, so I made fabric flowers and also used a fabric doilie. This was not planned, but there is not one sheet of pattern paper on my lo.  If you would like to see the sketch and play along, just check out the Twisted Sketches Challenge blog -> HERE.  Here is my take on the sketch.
