Paper Cupcakes - No Pattern Paper!!

This weeks Paper Cupcakes challenge was really neat. I loved the idea of NO designer paper. I especially LOVED working with this precious image. You know how sometimes you see an image and you think that you just can not live with out it. That is how I felt about Eldon With Flower.
This week I followed icSketches for my layout inspiration. Enjoy and have a great week!!

Joyful Ride

Wow what a week already!!
I'm so sorry I'm a few hours late with getting my Paper Cupcakes post up and going. I had so much going on, online over the weekend that I thought I set this up and to my dismay I learned today at work that I did not.
So here we go with the fun!!! This image is called Joyful Ride from Paper Cupcakes.
The challenge on the challenge blog this week is to create a project using punches. I had a lot of fun with this and decided to make my card monocromatic. I also used fun flock on my snail. I know snails are normally slimy and not fuzzy but I thought he was still cute all "fuzzed" up.

Sizzling Summer

My blog group Paper Princess Blog Sisters had a fun challenge. There are two teams and each team for 3 months takes turns sending each other card kits. Then we will all make a card with the same elements and post our creations on our blogs on the 20th of each month.
So this is the start of our creations. This month's theme is Sizzling Summer and I sent out the kit for this month. Another fun part is our blog group is split in to two teams so the other team had a completely different kit to work with.
My team is:

On my left side bar you can see our Paper Princess Blog Sister's list. Have fun browsing around. The other team had a really fun, challenging image to play with.

The challenge this week on the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog is to make a boy card with glitter. I used stickles on my cowboy and the brown brads are covered with glitter.
The stamp set I used is new to me that I purchased from limeLight Papercrafts called Billy by Pink Cat Studios. He is so stinkin' cute!! In the set I purchased there is also a superboy with is superdog, a pirate with his pirate dog, and a little boy with a frog on his head. It is such a fun, cute set.
My card is created using Sweet Sunday Sketch #81. This is a really great, fun sketch so make sure you hop over and check it out.
Have a Happy Thursday and thanks for stopping by!!

Lovin' Summer!!

I have been busy, busy, busy trying to work on swaps for Splitcoast Stampers. These are two single page layouts I created. The first one was to be waterpark related. I had a rough time thinking of an idea so I went with a wave pool theme. The second one was to be a general themed summer layout so I went with a nice relaxing theme.
I used the Life is a Beach Cricut cartridge for both of the layouts. I also used my Storybook Cartridge to cut the scalloped circle on the first layout. The ribbon is misc ribbon I purchased at the Ribbon Outlet in Hagerstown, MD. The other embellishments are misc items I had from my stash.

Paper Cupcakes Flower

Our challenge this week on the Paper Cupcakes challenge blog was quiet a challenge for me. The challenge is to create your own homemade flower. This is something that was totally out of my element so I decided to break out my Cricut and make a layered paper flower. My image is Girl with Flower that can be purchased in the Paper Cupcake's store. I really like her simplicity and sweet face.
If you have not already make sure you join in on our Tea Party Blog hop. There are so many new, fun images that are sure to put a smile on your face. The badge is on my right side bar so you can easily find your way around the hop. You until this Wednesday to participate.
Have a HAPPY MONDAY and thank you for stopping by.

Inspiration Card

I joined a card swap on SCS and one of the groups as an Inspiration group. I rented this stamp set from Raisin Boat and thought it would be perfect for the swap. If you are not familiar with Raisin Boat hop over and check it out. You know how Netflix is a monthly movie club, well this is similar except you get stamp sets instead of movies. When you are finished using them you send them back to the company and they'll send you the next set in your cue. I just joined last month but it's actually a lot of fun!!
