Peachy Keen sketch callange

This week there was a challange at:  http://peachykeenstampschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/08/peachy-keen-stamps-sketch-challenge-59.html  

I needed to use peach color for the ccl color challange, so I combined peach with this challange into a card.   I love this little bird and I was playing with my copics.  Hope you all can visit and play along with peachy keen stamps, they are so much fun.

CCL challanges this past week

Hope you all have had a good week.   I worked on challanges earlier in the week, but had camera issues and did not get them posted in time to enter, but oh well.   I still want to post, because i thought my layout was too cute.   I am still working on some older photos and my dtr makes it so eas. y to make cute layouts.   I am not sure how I am going to put these in albums, I keep adding chunky embelishments.   I was goofing with trying to make some flowers and came up with this big pink one.   Of course since it is Cat, it has to be pink.  
The card isn't anything wonderful, was playing with my cricut and came up with it.   Hope you all can find time to play.

YPP Flower and Butterfly Swap

Hi Everyone, 

I want to show you the flowers and butterflies I made for a swap at http://yourpaperpantry.ning.com/

Hi  everyone,  I am super excited to be participating in this blog hop.   I love being  a member of  http://alilscrapofheaven.ning.com/   There are live crops and lots of swaps to participate in.  The members are great and tons of tutoral videos to watch.  

Well for my project, I have been working on a scrapbook for my son ever since he joined the Navy.  I had a group of pictures he posted on facebook.   He was having a little fun one day, letting maybe a little too loose at times.    But I think they are funny and will be great for his family to look at later in life. 

Now mind you I am sure he works hard most other days, but hey I am a mom, and had to make fun of him a little.

This is a simple layout, but still took me an hour for some reason.   Used some papers that are in the single pages at Joanns or Hobby Lobby.  The soldier cut out is a svg file from SVG Cuts.   Other elements are from K and Company. 

Now hop on to Deanna @  http://www.fernsfrills.blogspot.com/

Creating with the Crafty Life challanges for this week

Well I joing a new ning site this week.  Cat and I worked on a few challanges.   I can't get the pictures to load, so I am going to post all three here and link it back.   We did not use any specific page line, just pulled paper from the racks.   Cat did alot of the work, I need to work on her blog site, haven't posted in a while.   We are slowly using up pictures for her scrap book.   Maybe if we do these challanges each week we will get done a little quicker.
