Double the Fun for You Today!

Well, we just got back from back-woods Louisiana last night, where we don't have internet or a cell phone signal.  Yes, I survived, but only because I downloaded a few books to my kindle before I left home.  We had a good Christmas, and as usual, there were tons of us since Brett's family is pretty huge!

Anyway, down to business.  These are a little late, but better late than never right!?!  First off, let me share with you this past Wednesday's Twisted Sketches that I made.  The "twist" this week was to use "remember" in our layout - any how - any way.   If you'd like to play along just click on the link.

Now on to this past Thursday's Color Combos Galore.   Our designer challenge this week is to use "mesh" on or work.  This week's color combo was a little tricky, but I did it anyway.  Hmm.... I guess that is why it is a challenge right?  Just click on the link to play along!

I also squeezed in a little card as well.

Color Combos Galore 172

Happy Holidays everyone!!  Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, it is still a joyous time of the year. Having a little one makes it even more enjoyable and special. I love seeing the excitement and anticipation on Hayden's little face on Christmas morning.

Our color combo over at Color Combos Galore  are pretty much our traditional Christmas colors.  Therefore it seem appropriate to do a layout centered around Christmas.  I love this photo of my little guy with Santa (although he isn't too "happy" about it).  Hope you guys will play along with us this week!

Color Combos Galore 171

Are you feeling blue?  Well that's what we are this week over at Color Combos Galore.  Ok, not really blue, but that is what we are scrapping!  Funny, I didn't think I would like this combo because I like brighter colors, but I like how my layout turned out.  Be sure to click on the link above, if you'd like to see the inspiration over there and play along!

Twisted Sketches Number 80 is Up!

When I saw this week's sketch it was perfect for my photos.  I needed to do a side by side photo layout.  Do you see the similarity between the two photos?  Can you tell who is who?  I know it's hard, lol.  He, hee when I saw this photo of my hubby, I immediately thought about the little ball character from Jack in the Box!  Anyhoooo, if you'd like to play along, come join us over at Twisted Sketches.  Our "twist" this week is to use pop dots.

Sugar Sweet with Nikki Sivils!

Hey everyone!  Thought I would share with you a layout I made using Nikki Sivils using her line Sugar Cookie.   You can also see I used some of her cute little burlap buttons in the upper left hand corner of my lo.  Us girls over at Nikki Sivils teamed up with Creative Charms as well.  Those adorable felt flowers with the pearl centers are from them.  You can hop on over to Nikki's blog  for more inspiration.

Color Combos Galore 170 Is Up!

Hey everyone! Can you believe it is getting close to yet another holiday???  Our challenge over at Color Combos Galore is about gifts.  This could be anything - even the ways you might be "gifted".  I chose to do a layout of Hayden riding the bike that my beloved and wonderful sister gave him last year.  I hope you will play along with us!

How Cool Is This For Me....

I just got my box from Cards Magazine, and I was pleasantly surprised to see I had a two page spread (well, not quite a spread, but two pages!) in the August 2010 issue.  I created this card when I was on the Pebbles Inc. design team using one of my favorite lines from them "Tree House".  Anywho, just giving a little toot because I didn't know until now.

Color Combos Galore Inspiration Board 169 is Up!

This week's inspiration board is so soft and pretty.  I love the colors, especially since I don't get to do girlie colors that often!  Our challenge was to add sparkle.  Umm, I forgot... but my buttons are somewhat shiny, right?

Hope you will come play along with us over at Color Combos Galore!
