Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 157

I'm so excited to participate in this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #157!  It's been a lonnngggg while since I've entered, so here we go:)  I used patterned paper (My Mind's Eye - my FAVE!) from a past Taylored Expression Key Ingredients montly kit.  I loved all the MME papers in that kit, so I have been holding on to them for something special.  I made this card for Mother's Day, so needless to say this one will be going to my mom!

Mojo Monday Sketch 238

Wow - two posts in one day - I'm on a roll!  This is my card I made for Mojo Monday Sketch 238.  Since I recently had a baby and made a cutesy baby scrapbook, I have tons of cute baby paper from Simple Stories lying around!  The stamp sentiment is from Amuse Studios.  The flower is from I don't remember where - but isn't it beautiful!  Enjoy:)

Welcome to My Blog!

Hey everyone!  Welcome to my new, improved crafty blog!  I decided to start a new blog so that I could completely redesign and start fresh from my old one:)  So, I won't beat around the bush and I'll get started with one of my most recent projects.  I say recent, however I did this before our new baby, Andrew, was born.  It is a baby scrapbook that I did from a kit.  Unfortunately, I cannot remember the site I bought the kit from.  As soon as I figure it out I will definitely post to give them credit because they do have the most beautiful kits.  I saw this kit at the company's booth at CKC - San Marcos this past September.  The book is from Bo Bunny, the paper is Simple Stories and the kraft folders are from Jellibean Soup (note:  you CANNOT find these kraft folders anywhere at the moment!  I tried to purchase some additional folders to use in another project and was disappointed to find that they are sold out everywhere).  The embellishments are from a variety of companies:  American Crafts, Jellibean Soup and others that I cannot remember.  Anyways, here are pics of this project.  SO easy-peasy with the step-by-step instructions that came with it - I just added the distressing with inking the edges of just about everything!  Anybody who knows me, knows how I like to ink up everything:)  Hope you like my project!
