Oh Happy Day - SC81

Happy middle of June=only a few itty bitty days of school left!  Yay!  Who am I kidding?  No school means more kids home, which means no time for cardmaking!  But still.... it'll be nice.  No more keeping up with homework, signing agendas, alarm clocks and the like!  Oh happy day!

Which brings me to the reason you are here!  The middle of a month marks a new challenge at Stampin' Celebration!  Check out our versatile sketch!  I love it!

I originally was going to use it for a scrapbook layout, which you can see other DT members did, but ended up going with a pretty card!  I love this colour combo of Garden Green, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral.... with a little Gold thrown in there.... although I cheated with the stitching and used More Mustard as I had no Gold stitching in my MDS.  Here... see what I did!

I'm quite in love with the end result and can hardly wait to see these for real!  I have plans to make an actual card with physical product like this as well!  Who knows... I may even pull out my sewing machine for the stitching!

Hope you enjoyed taking a look here... don't forget to click on over to Stampin' Celebration to check out the challenge and what the other inspiring design team ladies have created!  You have two weeks for this sketch challenge... hope to see you in the gallery!

I {Heart} This - SCI80

Good morning to you all!  I can't believe it's June already.... time just flies!  Only a teeny tiny little bit of school left and then it'll be summer vacation!  Yay!  So to get you all in the mood and mindset for summer and sunshine, and all things bright, happy and fun... the ladies and I at Stampin' Celebration have a new challenge for you!  Check it out...

Now... I know that my layout isn't really extremely bright and all... but when I was making it... it all made sense, but when you just look at one little itty bitty layout by its  lonesome, you might wonder exactly where I am headed!

You see... when I saw the inspiration picture... I immediately thought... "Perfect!  Our Mexico pictures will get scrapbooked!"  So here I am making this layout with a picture from Mexico, but when I go back and look at the inspiration picture, it really doesn't match up all that well anymore!  In my head it does though... so try to stretch your imaginations for me, OK?

OK, that's it for me!  Seeya later... hopefully sooner rather than later... although with all this gorgeous weather we're having, it's usually later!
