Super Ryan

Hello, I know this is my second post for the day, don't be too shocked!!! I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.
This image, Super Ryan, and is a Wags N' Whiskers image. You can find him at Stamp and Create.
This card was created for several challenges. The first one I want to point out is for Friends Having Fun. Their challenge for Monday was to create a card that showed what is important to you on Memorial Day. Of course I am so proud of my brother in law that serves in the military and I love to take this day to celebrate him and all of our soldiers. However what is super special to me about holidays is having an extra off day with my two awesome boys. So this image inspired me because it reminds me of my fun boys.
The Pink Elephant - - Bright Fun Colors
Techno Stamper - - Sketch (TSSC124)
Kaboodle Doodles - - 3-2-1 (3 papers, 2 embelishments, 1 image)
Incy Wincy Designs - For the little ones

Bestfriend - Anyone for Anya?

Hello and Happy Memorial Day!!!
I'm so excited to have an extra day off to spend with my boys.
This week I created a card to participate in my Critter Challenge Blog. The challenge this week is to show a touch of spring my using flowers and the color purple. I know its hard to see but my one sheet of DP has flowers on it along with the prima.
This wonderful sketch is from Anyone for Anya? and the layering is for Sundays With Crissy.
To give one last plug, this adorable image can be purchased from Paper Jewels. Jenny is so amazing and just started caring C.C. Designs.
I'm keeping this post short and sweet so we can all enjoy our wonderful holiday.

I just adore my sweet boys. I have really been into doing brother layouts lately.
These pictures were taken in 2009 when my youngest was about 11 months and my oldest was 3 1/2.

Winter Wonderland

Showing off more of my last weekend scrapbooking pages. These pages were actually created using a border set I received in swap on SCS. I really like the DP and stamped image the creator used. These pictures were taken of my oldest son last winter (2009.)

Dinosaur Scrapbook Layout

Last weekend I was able to complete 12 scrapbook pages. I loved staying home and hanging out with my boys and getting some craft time in. Our spring has been so busy it's nice to find the time to relax here and there.
This double page set was created using a dinosaur theme by My Minds Eye, Abbey Road Stomp collection. I purchased it from Two Peas in a Bucket. I love this collection and had a ton of left over chipboard pieces, paper, ribbon, etc, to create another 3-4 double page layouts.
Have a great Friday and I'll be back later this weekend to share more pages with you.Right page - - Dinosaur chipboard, brads, paper and tag. All of this is from the same collection.

Right Side - - Dinosaur ribbon, brads, tags, die cut, and paper. All from the same dinosaur collection.

Paper Jewels Saturday Post

I purchased my very first C.C. Designs image about 7 months ago for my b-day. Ever since I have been totally in love. I had a hard time finding a store that sold them so I was really excited when Jenny at Paper Jewels announced that she would be carrying them.
This little sweetie is Swiss Pixie Birgitta. I like the Swiss Pixie line because I think their little wings are precious. This card was created for several challenges (see below.) S2G Challenges - Use Ribbon
Cute Card Thursday - Make a card for "Someone Special"
Delightful Sketches - Sketch Challenge
PaperPlay Challenges - Use the brown and an alternate color
Paper Makeup Stamps - Use 3 flowers

Play Ball

This weekend my nephew is having his 7th birthday party at our local minors baseball game. Unfortunately we are unable to attend so I wanted to get his card made up to give in advance. I adore this Greeting Farm image and have a feeling I'll be using it a good bit.

Dance Time

On SCS I joined a Cricut layout page swap. The first two I hosted and then I handed the reins over to another hostess to take care of temporarly for me. I can not stay away from the swap. It's so much fun to play with your Cricut when doing page layouts.
For this layout I used the new Robot cartridge. I used my design studio to weld the title.
I created these pages with this title because my boys love to dance. I have taken some really cute pictures of them "gettin' down." They also both love robots so I thought it would be a fun combination with these cute little robots.

Crafty Critters #26

My blog group Crafty Critters host different challenges and this one was posted by my girl Moira. I love that Moira always gives us scrapbook page challenges. Now that I have a love for card making I find myself not making scrapbook pages as often. However it is my first paper crafting love so I find myself creating these pages with such ease.
The sketches that she gave us are awesome. The first page you see is SBSC114 (page 2) and the second one is SCSC114 . They are both really awesome, fun layouts. The last picture is of the two pages side by side.
I know you can't read the journalizing so just a brief recap. The pictures are of my oldest son during out first 2009 big snow.
