My Bookworm
I have been having fun lately doing monochromatic layouts,so I picked out all of the greens in the School is Cool collection (with a little bit of yellow) for this layout and used the ruler ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel.

I added the black twine to this handmade tag.

 I also made this card:

I used a beautiful striped ribbon for this teacher's card.

Thank you so much to the ladies at the Ribbon Carousel for sending me such pretty things to play with :) Love them all :)

Now, lets talk prizes!

My little guys

Hi ladies, I'm home alone for the first time in weeks !!! The boys and hubby are at grandma and grandpa's house and are staying for dinner :) ahhhhhhhh ! It's so quiet !!!! LOL!

I made this layout during the weekend using a sketch from Nicole at Jillibean Soup. I love doing these challenges because they make me use up all my current JB I don't feel guilty about buying all of the new collections when they come out !!! Love me some JB :) !!

My little guys 

I used supplies from many different collection for this one. I do love to mix and match !!! 

I made the flowers from the "hexagon" paper from the Macho Nacho collection. It's funny when you stare a piece of paper long enough ,you start to see things :)

 Love these kraft tags for title and journaling .

and an other close up :)

and here's Nicole's sketch (Thanks for an other great one).
