PKS Face it Fridays

This is a brand new challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog. Face it Fridays will get us to use our PKS face stamps in different ways. I had fun w/ this challenge because I LOVE my PKS faces. I cut the box out from Tags, Bags, Boxes and more, the little monster is from Mini Monsters, Paperdoll Dress Up-Mummy and the pumpkin is 3 ovals I cut from Plantin Schoolbook. The stamp is from Michaels $1 bin and the MS spiderweb border punch.

SOUS Challenge


This week at SOUS We had to follow this 2 page sketch.

Now I have to admit this was a rough one for me, for 2 reasons. The first is the 2 page part of course. The second thing is all the "white space" I'm one of those scrapbookers that feels the need to fill every little inch of space on a LO. Do you know what I mean? I was done, but I didn't feel done.
The only thing I know about my supplies is the patterned paper is Basic Grey Cappella. And my MS punch.

Hope your day is great!!

Peachy Keen Challenge

This is the sketch and color sceme we had to follow for this challenge. The colors were the rough part for me, I couldn't make them flow together. Know what I mean? But, I like how it finally turned out. I used the cute little froggie stamp. I love him!! I embossed w/ I think it's called Bubbles on some Core-adnations paper and then sanded it. Pretty cool effect I think.

Have a great day!!

SOUS Challenge

Ha!! Finally finished! This is for the Stuck on U Sketches Challenge. We had to follow a sketch (Which I forgot to load again) This is a pic of my first born daughter, when she was 6 days old. She's now almost 23. Can you say "I'm old"? ARRRGGG!!! I used DCWV Mariposa stack, may I say "I LOVE this paper!" I love anything w/ butterflies! I also used Lacy Lables for the scalloped circles, and Plantin Schoolbook for the square frame. The font is stickers from my Basic Grey Capella pack, although they dont show up as much as I would like. Some Prima flowers, buttons and some bling from Want 2 Scrap. Oh, and my new Martha Stewert punch.

Have a great day!
