Nikki Sivils March Challenge!


This photo of my darling "big" puppy, Jolie, cracks me up.  While I was away for spring break, she stayed at her favorite pet resort.  This photo was taken there on St. Patrick's day.  I have no idea how they got her to sit still for the photo.  I'm thinking they probably glued that hat on to her head! 

Anyway, on for my reason for posting.  Every month we have a challenge over at the Nikki Sivils blog.  It lasts all month long, and I post the winner at the start of the following month's challenge. You get your choice of Nikki Sivils papers.  Seeing that St. Patrick's Day is celebrated this month , I thought it was appropriate to make this challenge about "luck".  We are using this adorable sketch below by design team member Anna Bowkis.

My Little Shoebox Farewell Blog Hop!

Can't believe it is that time already!  It seems we all just started as a design team and now the term is up.  I totally love My Little Shoebox products, and I have for a long time now.  Even before I was on the design team you could catch me using their adorable products.  This is why I want to share you more than just my design team journey.  I want to share with some of my all time favorite My Little Shoebox projects - old and new.  I even have some more favorites that I can't show you because they are out to be published. 

I hope you have been enjoying the blog hop so far.  You should have just arrived here from Shemaine Smith's blogNow how about me sharing with you some of my MLS favorites (in no certain order - some are from a couple of years ago as well).

Sketch Challenge with My Little Shoebox!


Hey ya'll!!  We just got finished with Hayden's spring break here! (If you have been wondering where I was!)  He and I took a drive to Dallas.  We got to visit with family and friends, and also squeezed in a trip to the Dallas Zoo in there.  That zoo is awesome by the way.  We drove back Thursday with my sister in tow.  Then she and I flew out Friday to Tennessee to my other sister's.  We wanted to visit our mom, who seems to be up and down.  We never know when it is going to be our last time to see her.  Anywho, I got home last night at 10 pm.  I was one tired puppy.

The layout above is of Gavin, my little nephew.  He was so cute. Every time I took a picture the camera flash would make him squint his eyes.  The layout is for this months My Little Shoebox sketch challengeJust click on the link to play along.  You could win some awesome My Little Shoebox goodies!!

Another to Share!

Just another layout using some of my goodies that I got at CHA from Jillibean Soup.  I really like how this layout turned out. My style seems to be a more graphic and linear lately, lol.  What will it be in six months? I never know.  I don't think I like to stay the same.  Thank goodness I don't change my house decor as often as I do my scrapping style.  My husband would surely  Anywho... as I say here is another layout for ya!

The Collasped Cake!



Hee,hee this is my God son and nephew Karson.  His mommy made this really adorable cake with cars and firetrucks on top for his birthday.  The little city had a major disaster.  The whole city collasped!  Alas, the birthday still went on, and it didn't seem to bother Karson one bit.

On my layout above I have a mixture of Jillibean Soup products - some old - some new.  Since I go to CHA and work at Nikki Sivils booth, I get to visit other booths.  One of the little perks is getting some CHA goodies.  I was thrilled to say the least that I got some Jillibean Soup products.  They are always so fun, and I love the colors they use in their papers!

Sketches 4 Cards

Not long ago, I shared with you "Sketches 2 Scrapbook"It was a iphone app that I was asked to be a part of.  Now there is an app for cards too called "Sketches 4 Cards".  How cool is it to have a sketch right at your fingertips, when you are lost for inspiration?  If you go to crops, all you have to do is bring your phone.  If you are like me, you don't have to worry about leaving that sketch that you "remembered" to print out but "forgot" to bring with you!  Now you can have it on your phone.

Anyway, I was asked to do make a card for the "Sketches 4 Cards" app too.  I used the adorable new collection from Nikki Sivils "It's Raining, It's Pouring" to make my card.   Don't look too close those!  LOL, I can be such a goober sometimes!  I put my raindrop paper upside down - of course, maybe it is supposed to go that way??  You decide, lol.  It was an adorable sketch, and I had a lot of fun working with it.  I hope you like it despite my boo boo!
