Bo Bunny -White space challenge

Hello peeps :)
A quick share of a layout I made for the white space challenge over on the Bo Bunny blog. I used the On the Go collection for this layout. I love these fun colors and patterns !!

The Sky is the Limit

 The alphas are Thickers from the Amy Tangerine collection.

 and the mini alphas are from October Afternoon ( Yay !! ), they finally made orange ones !!!

I  got the idea for this layout from a sketch I had seen on Pinterest , I had just taken a quick sketch of it and now I can't find it to give credit ,grrrrr...from now on I pin everything I  love :).

We just got back from camping...I'm off  to do a MOUNTAIN of laundry !!!
Bye for now :)

Adventure Zone

Hello scrappy friends, I have a quick share of a layout I created for the Jillibean Bean Soup July sketch challenge. I always love Nicole's sketches, they make me work a bit out of my comfort zone and I love that !!!
Here's the sketch.

And my take on it :)
                             Adventure Zone
I used the Macho Nacho Soup collection and a bit of the Game Day Chili Soup for this layout of the boys at Disney in May.
 A few close ups .
 The small banner was created by trimming some of the neckties from the "3 Parts Muscle" paper.
That all for now.
As always ,thanks for visiting :)

Guest Designer at Scrap Africa

Hi and welcome to my blog....yes, I said Africa.... it sure is a long way from New Brunswick !!!
I was totally honored and very surprised when I received an emailed asking me to be part of this week's challenge. The challenge is to create a project dedicated to the boys/men in our lives.
I chose to make 2 layouts ,one for each of my little dudes.
Scrap Africa blog can be seen HERE !!! Go have a look around, they have amazing talent on this site !!! Thanks again ladies for having me as a guest :)

First up, Mr Gabriel !!
He's the funny one in the family and I really do think he is Simply Amazing!!

                                Beach Fun
Supplies for this layout are from the Macho-Nacho Soup from Jillibean Soup .
 I created the "Sunburst" behind the title block by hand cutting a few of the neckties and adhering them in a semi circle on dark brown cardstock and trimming the edges .

 Gabriel often says "this was the best day ever" so I had to include this sticker to my layout.

an other close up :)

And now for Mr Felix, well just look at that face !!! Never a dull moments with this one !!

                Hello ,my name is Felix ....I'm Awesome
Hope he never walks up to someone and says this !!! I think  he's confidant enough to do it !! I'll have to keep an eye on this handsome devil :)

Supplies for this layout are from Simple Stories - Awesome collection and created it with a sketch from Kristine from Creative Scrapper.

Thank you so much for visiting me today ( maybe some of you all the way from Africa) !
Hope you'll come back soon, I have lots more to share in the next few days :)
Happy crafting :)

My last layouts for Birds of a Feather

Hi scrappy friends, today I'm sharing the last 2 layouts I've created with the July kit from Birds of a Feather Kit Co. It's was a fun 6 months and I'd like to thank Amy for having me on her team !!!
I created both of these layouts with the same sketch ( one that I had gotten from my friend Kristine at a Creative Scrappers crop in April- this sketch was designed by Jenny Evans...I loved it so much ,I've already used it 3 times !!!)
                                       Beautiful Girl

I used the Authentique -Glory papers from the kit for this one.

Then I used the Game Day Chili supplies from Jillibean Soup from the rest of the kit ...for a totally different look !!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today :)

Be Amazing

Hello blog friends :)
Yesterday ...I just played with deadlines or assignments . I used the monochromatic challenge over at My Mind's Eye blog and dug out of the yellow goodies I had on hand and had a ball making this layout. I don't do monochromatic layouts often....maybe I should how this one turned out :)

Be Amazing 
I used My Mind's Eye supplies from Follow your Heart-Be Amazing, 6X6-Out of the Blue, Good Day Sunshine, Fine and Dandy, Hip Hooray and Stella Rose collections.

 Hope you all have a great weekend ahead !!! Thanks for visiting my blog today :)

Just for fun....this sign was my inspiration for the chevron shapes for this layout !! So much construction on the roads right now !!!
