Hi there!

Last month, I was super
lucky to attend a
Fund raising crop 
and created this
Grade 8 Grad
I found the picture (they are far a few between) while
 going through a stack of photos.
Look at my 80's hair LoL
I had to document it!
In this photo is my Baba (a younger version)
my little sister and two cousins

Here are some close ups:
 Some enamel dots and a tag tucked in behind
I kept it simple to focus on this fab paper
from Crate paper.
 I layered some cutfiles and a Shine card
from my stash.
My friend Laura, shared her scrappy embellishments with me,
Lady Marmalade  
and it's perfect on this page
The My Mind's Eye sticker banner stitched with twine
picks up my colour scheme whileadding some gold!

For the Love of SUMMER - Challenge YOUrself #46

Hi there!!

I was lucky enough to "glue" my scrappy girl down for an
afternoon and enjoy some craft time
(it's challenging some times!!)

I joined in over at
CY 46
I was inspired by: the word LOVE, the colours; orange and
yellow (I used very little) and the sun shining
I totally stretched this Fall challenge
So, I created a Summer page in Fall !
(not too mention we had our hottest days this Fall)
For the LOVE of SUMMER
This was a fun summer day in July.
My Baba loves to eat fresh fish and go to the beach.
We took her for a drive to Erie Beach
She was having a good day and was being her sassy self
and up for allowing me to take a family selfie

Here are some close ups:
 I fussy cut the collection name as my title!
 My friend Laura recieved this Flamingo ribbon
and mailed it to me!
 This ribbon was wrapped around a  golden box of chocolates
I recieved for my birthday - it is perfect for this page!!
 This is my FAVorite part of the page
a crystal Flamingo
I received this kit for birthday (August) from my girl.
I seem to collect Flamingos but this is my very first layout
using my Flamingo stash!!

I created my page using Laura's 
September 15th sketch
Stuck!? September 15th
I couldn't find enoughscrappy time to sit down and finish this page in September
but knew which picture  I was using!

Invitation; Scrapbook & Cards Today Sep Cut File

Hi there!!

Today, is the perfect day to share some Love
I attended a FABulous wedding over
the weekend of our two sweet friends!

When we received their wedding invitation,
I knew I had to scrapbook it for them.
It didn't need much, but I did mat (offset) the cut file,
then layered the solid flowers and added some sequence (adding bling)
I ordered a frame 
Framed Invitation

I chose to create using the
designed by Nicole Nowosad
It almost looks like the design printed on their invitation!  
Perfect for what I was creating
September Cut file
This is a great floral cut file, I couldn't wait to start creating!
Thank you Nicole
and Thank you for stopping by

Fly - Guest Designer - Stick it Down Card Team

Hi there!!

I am just thrilled to be
Guest Designing
this month 
with the talented

I am so excited I am going to show you my card!!! 
When I was invited to Guest Design
I peeked at the card sketch & saw the word FLY...I knew I was making this card for my nephew.  
He is off to post secondary in a few weeks - and feeling a little intimidated (maybe even scared now!)  I kept it simple and followed the sketch.  [Like I said, it was perfect for what I had in mind] 
The poem inside the card it perfectly fitting....for both this sketch and my nephew.

YOUR WINGS                        


I loved that it had three.  I used butterflies, the first one at the bottom has one crystal, the second has two and the third has three.  My interpretation was 1, 2, 3 FLY...
Exactly what my nephew needs to do while embracing his next chapter in life.
I am so proud of him!!

I wanted to have some fun and use my water colour palettes.  I wanted a fun
happy palette.

Here is your sketch:
Stick it Down Card Sketch - August

Good Luck!
