August Challenge at Papercraft Business Challenge!!

Hello friends and welcome back!
I am happy to share the new challenge at Papercraft Design Team 
August Challenge - Use Circles!!

When this challenge came up I thought about my Lawn Fawn Sublime 
stamp set & nautical round dies but when I went to get it - I realized I had 
these donuts that are far too cute!!!

 I created some Donuts with Sprinkles - All of the Sprinkle are embossed.
Then I cut oit a large circle for the donut, and a smaller one fore the frosting.
I used my Jilibean Donut stamp for my sentiment - 
I forgot to take a picture of the inside - it said, "even birthdays!"
The sentiments are embossed with glitter embossing powder.

 I cut a card base that looks like a large 8, this is attached behind the tan donut.
I attached frosting asn then layered the small donuts to the card.
I was going to cut a circle from the center but I was not convinced this was a great idea - 
we will see this may happen yet!! 

 all in all I think it is super cute to deliver with donut for a friends birthday - 
after a certain age some people don't like their birthday.
So I will let sprinkle make their day better!!

Adventure Awaits

This photo has to be about 16 - 17 years old - 
but has always been a favorite - 
It was in my leaving room for years - 
then my bedroom & then I just had to scrap it!!!

 I can remember this day at a local lake - they would always play on the rocks.
They are watching kayakers start their trip down the river to the rapids. 
my favorite part is that its not staged at all - that right there 
their personalities still.
In this photo he is about 6 and she just turned 3.
They are now 21 & 18. WOW !

I love to look at old photos and remember those days and moments!!
I am so glad I spend time asn money to scrapbook!!

Kate Spade Trip

When shopping for purses my mom and I 
would always ask my daughter if she wanted one.

She was never interested.

Then one trip with out Nana it happened the first big buy!!!

These are the pics nana got sent to her from the store!

The layout was inspired by a layout Nicole Nowosad created.
I had a kit from Crop & Create where she was teaching and the papers fit so well!
Again this is over a year old - put it is done & I love it still!

thanks for stopping in !

National Championships - Cheer

Taylor was on cheer for half a year after the coach - a friend - 
needed a tumbler asn my gymnast daughter was what she was looking for
 to round out the squad.  Taylor agreed to join, but not 
before she talked her BFF Jill into it!! 

 Low & behold a few months in - they found themselves in Niagra falls 
at the National Championships!!
Wow - that was crazy!!!

 The background paper here is the cover of the program.
I traced the letters in glitter as that's what cheer is - LOUD BLING!

the line is their team from the program - 
there wasn't alot in there,
ads & more ads.

This layout was created AWHILE ago seriously, 
but like I said I found a cache of them.

I like to add them all to the blog 'incase' some thing ever happen to them - 
I can still look here & family ans friends near and far can see what I make!

We spend hours and $$$ - so I like to share my creations!!

Parker Puppy

Sometimes you stumble across pictures that you just need to scrapbook - 
even though they are from years ago 
& you can not understand how you have not scrapped them yet!!

 This layout was creatyed with left over pieced of paper on my desk & 
some left over stickers from YEARS ago.  
I know the collar is Karen Foster from a store that hasn't been in Thunder Bay 
in more than 12 years, Yikes!!

Parker is now 6 and still steals my heart - 
he is such a good boy!

Be Brave, Fearless & Free

So here we go again - ANOTHER layout that was never posted !!

It's raining here so i thought tonight was a good catch up night!

The paper line is MME happy camper - 
The matching layout for this was posted last JULY!! EEEK

Thanks for stopping to see me attempting a catch up - 
please leave a comment so I can come visit you too!!!

Thank You Berry Much

I was asked to make a thank you card 
to accompany a fruit tray for a friends co-workers.

She wanted the sentiment - Thank you berry much, 
added to the card.  Now we can'y always have all the stamps 
that we dream up so I used word to create the sentiment!!

This card is really quite large ( a 8.5 x 11 folded in half).
She wanted enough room to write a message ans I figured if 
it was sitting on the staff room table - it should be seen.

 I added crystal effects to the berries - to give the card interest & 
Ised pop foam to lift the wreath up.

All in all I think it turned out GREAT!! 
& she loved it too bonus!!

Thanks for stopping in 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
