Check it out!

Today is my day over on the Gossamer Blue blog with a quick article on lifting yourself... no not actually getting your body off the ground (lets be honest... that would take a crane for me! lol)... I mean scraplifting yourself! Here is my layout I did using the April Gossamer Blue kit (the "high" in high school alpha was from a previous kit):

and a little close up:

10 Min. Craft Dash Challenge!

Hi everyone!
I know... brace yourself this is 2 days in a row of posting! lol
 
When I first heard of the 10 minute Craft Dash challenge I really thought there was no way.. I simply push things around for far too long to be able to accomplish anything in 10 minutes... but surprisingly so I DID IT!!! with seconds to spare! :)
 
and here's my card! I kept it fairly simple and easy by using die cuts and stickers! I used the April Gossamer Blue kit (everything used on the card but the white ribbon is in the kit)
 
-Hello Happiness-

 *Time: 9 minutes 50 Seconds*
 
Would you like to play along? Head over to the Craft Dash Challenge blog and load up your card!
Thanks for stopping by! :)

April Gossamer Blue Projects!

Hi y'all!
 
Just stopping by from the world of go go go to post my Gossamer Blue April projects! I had so much fun with this kit! As soon as it arrived at my door I already had pictures printed and I was ready to rock and roll and whipped up 5 quick layouts!
 
First up is a Main Kit only layout: love this sweet picture of my youngest daughter and a group of her friends from school.. they are so darn cute! :)


 Next up are some pictures of my oldest daugher that I have loved for so long.. this was our sweet puppy 'Zeeb'... he's no longer with us (hit by a car...:(...) and this paper was just perfect to finally get these pictures scrapped! I handwrote the title and used my microtip scissors to cut it out... I used the chevron/arrow paper and cut it into strips and weaved it in the top right corner- love the way this came out!
 
 Next up is a quick layout (other than the stitching! lol) of my daughter and her friend Halle posing for me in the hotel we stayed at during my sons State baseball tournament! They are such hams!

Last was such a quick layout for me! I came back into my scrap room and literally put this together in less than 30 minutes... which is a total miracle for me! I have had these pictures printed for awhile and didn't at first thing I would be able to use them with this kit either till I started pulling paper and realized it was perfect!! I used a bunch of the Color Kit for this layout with the accents of the gold! I am usually not a big gold fan but I have to say I lOVE it in this layout- so perfect!
The award she got here was awarded to one top student in the entire band... and she got it! Couldn't be more proud of her!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog to check out the April kit creations!! I am already looking forward to May's kit! :)
Stop by tomorrow for a special 10 minute card challenge! :)
