You're A Cutie!

Wow, finally some layouts to post. It feels like it has been ages since I blogged a scrapbook page. Anyways, I have created this one of my gorgeous Renee for the new challenge site Get Picky. Isn't she a cutie. Of course I am totally biased. I love pink and green together on this layout. I feel like it has really brought out the photos.
The papers are Little Yellow Bicycle Delightful Collection, MME Quite Contrary and Crate Paper Paper Doll Collection. The flowers are Prima and some I won from D-Lish scraps. The rhinestones are Bo Bunny buttons and bling from their Petal Pushers Collection and Kaisercraft.

Thanks for looking.

The Lollipop Ladies Challenge #7

Mmmmmm....mmmmmmm, yummy donuts are the inspiration for this fortnights challenge over at The Lollipop Ladies. Don't they just look delicious and the bonus theme is chocolate.

Here is my interpretation using the circle and hole of the donut to design my card.

Miss Anya sitting pretty on the edge of my card. I loved making this window card. There is a tutorial for them over at The Stamp Spot blog here.
The patterned paper is Echo Park Life is Good and Collage Press Sweet Shoppe Die-Cut Rings.
Please pop past The Lollipop Ladies and check out the rest of the design teams fabulous creations.
I look forward to seeing how this challenge inspires you.

Perfect In Every Way

Sorry, I have not had much on my blog lately, but I came down with a severe case of tonsilitis weekend before last and am still recovering. I cannot believe how much it has taken out of me and I still have days when I am extremely tired.

I have done this LO of my gorgeous daughter Renee for the Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch #2.
This is the first time I have participated in their sketch challenges but I had the Kaisercraft Hey Birdie 6x6 paper pad and thought I would give it a go.

I will have a couple more layouts to share tomorrow.
Thanks for looking.

Lollipop Ladies Challenge #6

Wow the fortnights go by so quickly. Time for another inspiring challenge from The Lollipop Ladies and this fortnight we have yummy strawberries and cream, with the bonus theme of layers.

Don't you just want to gobble that up.

Here is my take on this sweet inspiration:

I love strawberries and who could resist a yummy dollop of cream on top. Divine!!
Strawberries always remind me of summer so I went with a Summer theme card. I love the bright papers in the Echo Park Sweet Summertime range and thought they would be perfect for this card. Lots of layers of patterned paper which I scalloped and then layers on top of that too. I cut out those sweet little flowers and glossy accented them.

You guys are rockin' the challenges each fortnight. Please stop by The Lollipop Ladies and check out the rest of the design teams creations. They are amazing.
I look forward to seeing all your inspiring cards and layouts.

Thanks for looking.
