I love, love, love the new Create a Critter cartridge. I made a frog and dragonfly card, and it turned out so well, I decided to spin it into a layout. Frog is 5" backed in black....cheeks are an MS punch. Dragonflies are 3". I adore green and love the way the colors and polka dots and rick rack blend on this one. Title is Pooh Font.....Marker. Now I've got find a picture.......

The challenge at Practical Scrappers this week is floss/fiber/ribbon. I love all of these, but sometimes find them hard to use. Check out the site for some great ideas from the Design Team.
I chose to scrap a picture of me and hubby as we sailed away from Miami. I had some great papers from a Travel themed pad....cut them into strips for the background. The plain cardstock has leaves embroidered onto it........then I added some jungle leaves from my Cricut (Life's a Beach). To frame out the double matted picture, I used some great variegated yarn which picked up all the colors of the paper. Title is Thickers.

Great Friday Sketch at Practical Scrappers this week....hop over and check it out! Here is my version!
We missed Easter at my mom's house because we were on a cruise. But that doesn't stop me from getting some pictures, thanks to my sister. Here are my little niece and nephew hunting Easter eggs. Used KI Bloom papers for everything......added some crumpled flowers, some Stampin' Up border punches, and little hand pieced bunny and chick.
This is for Ella's Pink Scrapbook - Challenge #3-Easter over at the Pink Elephant.

I've made a layout of these pictures 3 times...can't get it the way I want. The challenge for The Pink Elephant is to make-over a layout...so had to use this one. For my creation, I took apart a cupcake chipboard album and decoupaged one of the "pages." I used patterned paper on the bottom, embossed (Swirls) white paper for the icing, and circle punch (Martha Stewart) for the cherry. Glazed the icing and cherry with glitter glaze and added some beads for sprinkles. Tied some blue ribbon around the base. The other cupcakes are Jolee's stickers I've had forever. Paper is Doodlebug (stripes) and Love, Else (the brown which is embossed with cupcakes...) Added rick rack...and Thickers for the title. Pictures are my niece on her first birthday. And I think I finally like this one!
