Spring & Easter Theme Pack

Hey y'all!
I recently received this gorgeous Spring/Easter theme pack from The Memory Nest  to create with
 
This product pack is jam packed with papers and embellishments at an amazing value.   TMN is clearing out the old to bring in the new. If you have Easter pics to scrap or fun spring ones, this may be the deal for you!!! I am having a blast creating with this kit!! 
Here are 2 layouts and a card that I have already made. (When Spring Break & Easter are behind us, I plan on creating a lot more!!)
  Everything here is from We R Memory Keepers & is from the kit, with the exception of the alphas (Thickers) & the flair (Recollections). I love how easy it was to put this layout together!
Here are some detail shots:



And here is the second layout: 

I am in love with this pink woodgrain paper from Jillibean soup! The rest of the papers & embellies here are from We R Memory Keepers. (The alphas are from my stash & are by Fancy Pants.)

Here is the card I made for Ty for Easter 
It's simple enough for a 7 year old boy to appreciate! 

Be sure to check out this, and more, deals at The Memory Nest

Have a great day y'all!

Lucky Me

Hey y'all! I hope everyone is having a good week.
My kids are off for Spring Break so we are doing a lot to stay busy! We've visited the batting cages & had lunch with friends, had a doctor's appt, gone out for fro-yo, & more is planned for later in the week. Ty can't wait to see the movie Bears on Friday!
We are also busy cleaning her house & sprucing up the yard for Easter dinner with the fam at our house. But in the midst of the busyness, I did find time to complete this layout:

See the blue ribbon at the top? That is from the newest Lovebug Creations' collection, "Gardens of Tara". The color is "Blue Bells".  I have also used four of the yummy Beautiful Blooms. These clay flowers are awesome to work with! And they come in a variety of colors and three sizes. Here I used White, Hugs, Crushed & Jaded.

  
 The papers and other embellishments are from Crate paper's StoryBoard collection. The alphas I used are AC Thickers.

Thanks for stopping by y'all! Have a wonderful day!

Birthday Tag Featuring Lovebug Creations

Hey y'all!

I know I said earlier that this time of year was loaded with birthdays & celebrations, & I was not kidding! I love it, & just hope that you will enjoy me sharing all the cards & projects too!

Over the weekend we went to a friend's daughter's 2nd birthday. She was so sweet & precious. I remember the days when my kids were that small & innocent like they were just yesterday. But yet they also feel a world away. I see young parents & wonder how I ever got through. How in the world did I go grocery shopping with little ones?! As much as I may say I miss it, I am glad that part of life is behind me.

But alas, here is the tag that I made to adorn Quinn's birthday gift:

See that gorgeous ribbon on the top?! It's from the newest Lovebug Creations' collection-"Gardens of Tara". I used the phenomenal shade of Garden Green. These ribbons are so fresh & crisp. Just the perfect touch to every Spring project!
I also added a Beautiful Bloom in the center of my butterfly. The color is "Kisses".

I love the way this tag turned out. It is so dainty-just perfect for a sweet, little 2 year-old. 
The tag and alpha stickers are from Crate Paper's StyleBoard collection; the doily is Martha Stewart; the "2" is from AC Thickers. I also used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch.                                                                      
Be sure to check out the Lovebug Creations' Blog for more inspiration from the CT gals!

Thanks for stopping by!

Last MS Kit

Hey y'all!
Good Tuesday mornin' to ya!
I recently received my last kit from Memorable Seasons. My DT term is up. I was sent Crate Paper's StyleBoard to work with:


This collection is right up my alley! I always love CP's collections, &  this one is no exception! It is so fresh & crisp-perfect for all my Spring & Easter scrapping. 
Here is the first layout I have completed: 

The doily is one from a pack I bought at the grocery store! (I am always looking for scrappy supplies wherever I am!) The alphas here are AC Thickers. 
  I also have my last challenge up over on the forums at Memorable Seasons. I would love for you to check it out & play along here. It is a Spring recipe challenge: 
-use at least 3 butterflies 
-use flowers

                      -give your project a Spring related title 

I would love to see your creations if you play. Post a comment here with a link so I can view & comment on your layouts! I may have a fun goody bag to give away too if you share!

PL with SOUS

Happy Monday y'all! They tend to come too quickly, but at least the weather here is nice now! We enjoyed lots of outdoor time this weekend. Leah had riding Friday afternoon and Ty had his first baseball game Saturday evening. I think Spring has finally sprung in full force. In fact, I noticed pollen on the car just the other day.  

Mondays also mean new challenges at Stuck On U Sketches and today's is the latest PL challenge. It is to use a top note shape on your project


Here is my spread:


The top note card is from MAMBI ( so is the "love" card). I used a mix of PL cards here. The heart & typewriter are from Echo Park & the "details" & "happy day" are from Simple Stories. The "so very needed" card is from Scraptastic. I have always loved these silly pictures of Ty! he was 2 here & wanted me to put his hair up in little piggies all over!! Silly boy!

This month's sponsor over at SOUS is Scrapbook Circle!
    
They are offering a $30 gift certificate to the store, so be sure to create with us this month & link up. You can play along with as many monthly challenges as you'd like & the more you play, the more chances you  have at winning!!

Get scrappin"!
