Would you like to have your own personalized Digital Stamp? Visit my post "Digital Me!" for more info!!!

On to Emma's challenge!! I have to say I love Emma's challenges!!! Everything about them is fun!!!!! So, this time she challenged us to create a layout!! Well, I started as a scrapbook fanatic and I have abandoned it due to my new love for card-making!!! I was struggling on what to create and in a sudden burst of creativity this came to mind!
Can you tell I still need some photography classes?!?!?!?!
It's a 2 page layout dedicated to my boys! In case you don't know I have three boys and my little girl. It seems like whenever I do do a layout it's about Abby..... so this time it was my boys turn!!

Hope you like what you see!!!

A project for Joy's Life!

Please don't forget to view my post from Thursay, DIGITAL ME!! There is a great giveaway!!!
My god-daughter graduated from high school a few weeks back! Marlene is very special to me, not only am I her baptism godmother, but I am also her first communion godmother and her Quinceañera godmother too. If you don't know what a Quinceañera is, its sort of like a sweet 16.
I made the card for her using Joy's Pun Stamps "Hot Dog" and the heart with hearts around.

Here is the recipe for this adorable card:
Cricut Expression
Cricut Gypsy
Card and envelope cut using Just Because Cards
Card measures 4.5 x 6.75
Doggy cut using Create a Critter
Doggy measures 3.85
Martha Stewart punch
DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies Stack
Recollections Cardstock
Celebrate it ribbon
Color Box Chalk Ink (chestnut and hot pink)
Zig 2 way glue
Zots 3D dots
Stotch Double sided tape
Flowers and brads ?
A la Mode Black Glitter Glue
Basic Grey chipboard letter
Uniball white pen

I did not own the cartridges that had a graduating hat, so I did my own! Super easy!!

I inked the doggy and the pink DCWV paper. I used 3D dots for the doggy, rolled diploma and the flowers. For the inside of the card I used the Martha Stewart punch and more 3D flowers.

The envelope has the dotted lines all around it and another flower with a button this time.

Hope you like what you see!!!!

Two Page LadyBug Layout

Hello my dear followers! I have not posted in a bit but my hubby was home after 3 weeks and I did not touch my scrapbooking things at all! But I wanted to share a layout I created a few months back. This LO was scraplifted from a little scrapbook store that closed a few months back.

I loved it when I saw it and took a picture just in case I ever recreated it.
Well, in my many outings to Michaels I came across the same paper that was used for the LO on CLEARANCE!!! I got the stack for less than 7 dollars!! I cut everything from Cricut....... but I don't remember from which cart!!! I didn't have my Gypsy then!

Also for the past couple of days I have been self-teaching myself how to create sketches on Photoshop! I will share that with you guys in the next week. For now, here is a sneak peak at one of the sketches I have created!

I think I will have my first challenge!!! Also, how about a video on how to create your own sketches?!?!?!? Let me know with a comment on this link if that would be something you would like to see!!
