Paper Piecing requires a lot of patience (or a glass of wine).  I created this layout for Lasting Memories and the challenge was to use a rabbit, egg, or chick on your layout.  So, I decided to use my Cricut to create this cute little bunny.  Ugh... all the layers were like putting a puzzle together.  I do like a good puzzle but I have to be in the right frame of mind to do so!

So without further adieu, here is my work:

I had trouble fitting my journaling in and actually wrote it several times.  Which meant, with each version, I had to get creative with the "replacement/repair" to the page.  I finally wrote the story on an extra piece of paper and placed it over the old story.  To make it look like that is what I had originally intended to do, I stressed the edges and adhered the block with foam tabs.  

I hope to see your work in this challenge - be sure to post by April 28th.

Materials Used: Bazzill cardstock, DCWV - My Sunshine Stack, ribbon, bunny & title from Cricut Design Space, and Heidi Floss edge distressor.

Back at Sketch N Scrap!

I am honored to be back at designing for Sketch N Scrap.  My first assignment is to help showcase the new sketch challenge by Heather Hall.  Here is the sketch and my work:

No automatic alt text available.

This sketch was super easy to follow!  However, as I realized that I wanted to include details of George Washington's Christmas Camel and needed to adjust the sketch slightly to accommodate the journaling.  

I hope that you join me in this challenge - I can't wait to see what you come up with!  The deadline to enter is April 30th!

Materials Used: Authentique - Peaceful/Chill paper & sticker tab, Cricut - Circle/sliced, wood snowflakes, brads, ribbon, and Doodlebug Design Inc. - Jack & Jill alphabet ("a's" & "c's" were cut from other letters).

Found My Mojo!

I can't believe that it is April already and I have am just making my first post of the year!  Yikes!

In any case, I am happy to help present the challenge over at Lasting Memories.  The challenge this week is to include the word "spring" into your title.  I took this challenge to heart and tried to find  inspiration to be creative with my title.  I came across this quote with a perfect picture to accompany it.  I love being pushed just enough to come up with something truly fun!

Please forgive the photo quality, but I needed to take this photo inside.  Believe it or not, it is snowing in mid-April! I can't wait to see your creative title you have until April 28th to play along!

Materials Used:  Paper House - Stable Wood paper, brads, ribbon, embossed cardstock, scrap paper, Heidi Floss edge distressor, old journaling block, Petaloo - Textured Elements Burlap Blossoms, Petaloo - Darjeeling Collection (pink), Darice Memoir alphabet stickers, and Thickers - Patchwork alphabet.

Lost Mojo....

Well, I had the opportunity to go away to scrapbook with my friends a bit ago.  I didn't have time to order photos or properly pack. In addition, I was not feeling well.  Hence - the lack luster of work I produced before I left early to go home.

It is funny because you can see the progression of the loss of my mojo.

Here are the pages I produced:


Well, I am hopeful to get back into scrapbooking and continue my quest to someday be caught up!  LOL!  Have a great day my friends!
