Hope you are always this happy

My Mind's Eye has an other sketch challenge on the blog and I decided to play along again. Challenge # 13 is to use this sketch and the word HOPE.

This is my take on this sketch.

Gabriel is so into these small toys called GOGOS CRAZY BONES right now, nothing makes him happier than getting a new package of them !!
I used the So Sophie  Charming collection for my layout .The Niki Riki Thickers are a perfect match for these papers.
Thanks so much for your visit.

Scraplift yourself (Pebbles inc)

This week on the Pebbles inc blog the DT was asked to scraplift one of their previous layouts.
I chose this layout of Gabriel taking his first steps using the Lil' Buddy collection.

and this my lift using the new Tree House collection.

These papers were a perfect choice for this layout...note the shapes he was painting, they look like the trees on the patterned paper !!!
Thanks for visting my blog !!

This month at Coordinates Collections I got to play with not one but the two kits!!
The first one is the Picnic kit, featuring supplies from the Tree House at Pebbles inc and Basic Grey Max and Whiskers collection.

Here are the projects I made with this fun and vibrant kit (plus a few add-ons from the CC store.)

Animal lover (how cute are those little animals !!! ) I plan to frame this for my scrap room !

Hey, c'est moi Felix
Translated it says "Hey ,it's me Felix". This is how he's been introducing himself  lately ...even to me !!

Sunny yellow blooms

You're a hoot card

And now for the Parade kit.

Featuring yummy supplies from Fancy Pants,We R Memory Keepers and Pink Paislee.

Gamer (Gabriel's favorite new hobby !!!) Loved these Pink Paislee Starlight stickers from the kit add-ons in the CC store!!

Italian ice (How cute are those We R Memory Keppers banners !!)

You are a star banner

I had such a great time making all of these . I been spending a bit more time in my basement because it's been so freakishly hot in New Brunswick !! That's it for now.
