Guess where Im going ?!!?!?! :)

Today I get to announce to all my creative friends that I am finally making the long overdue trip to DISNEY !!  I can not begin to tell you how excited I am as I will be spending a week through New Years with my neice where all the magic begins!   So when the SOUS Die cut team was asked to create something Disney, I was overjoyed.   Then overwhelmed.  I knew I wanted to jump start on my scrapbook album.... but no photos.  hummmm  and then it hit me.  The cover page to what will be an album containing all my memories of the trip.  :)   
So with out delay here is what I came up with.   DISNEY, 2014 !! 

For this I used Cricut Carts: Mickey Font - to create the back ground of mickey heads and the Disney title.  Also, Wrap it up for that fabulous Castle and for the date, I used a go to cartridge - Don Juan.

I love it and this will become the inspiration for my entire album.  Bring on 2014 !!!  

Be sure to check out the SOUS blog to see what our other Die Cut Team members created !  Who does not love Disney :)

10th Grade Homecoming

Sketch Challenge time again over on SOUS.  I really enjoyed this one and completed yet another layout for Codys album.  Homecoming formals allow me to add some girly accents and that I love love love.  Him... not so much. LOL.   For this sketch I really sat and played a bit with my Cricut Cart, Lacey Labels.  I can not believe how tiny I was able to cut all thoes pieces.  I think it turned out better than any store bought embellishment myself  :)

Check out the SOUS BLOG and absorb all the official SKETCH TEAM girls came up with.  I hope they approve of my design and so thankful to be able to participate with them when I can.  They are fab!

Hello - Sending Warm Wishes

Today July 12 is the SOUS Die Cut team reveal day.  A favorite day of mine!! I love playing with paper and turning all that pattern into something that makes me smile.  For this challenge we were asked to use a flourish.  Seemed simple enough and after pouring through all those Cricut Carts, I discovered a world of flourishes... but what to make... then a butterfly landed on the flowers outside my window and TA DA.... A happy hello for spring or summer.  
For this challenge I used Cricut carts - Serenade for the Flourish and April Showers for the cloud and butterfly.

Go Team Go!

Another Friday over on SOUS and another opportunity to complete some layouts for Cody's albums.
Participating in the Sketch challenges is certainly fun, allows me to get much needed photos scrapped but wow, are the girls on that Design Team simply wonderful!  I'm certainly not up to par when compared to that talent but keeping in Kimi style and attempting to create a few masculine pages for his album this is what I came up with .   This sketch is another wonderful one as it can be turned to go with the photos either verticly or on thr horizontial..  I chose to turn it, and scrap all this silliness from Cody's Senior Football Homecoming week.  Yes.. they actually spray painted that truck orange !! wow... Chase's dad earned  huge ' coolio dad points for that!   

Be sure to browse the inspiration found on the SOUS Blog for this challenge, you will be inspired for sure with all that talent.
