Happy Memorial Day!! I've had a lazy weekend, not doing much, but getting a little crafting done! This is a new week for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and here's the design for this week.

When I saw the sketch for the first time all that was going through my head for a plan was a pregnant stomach. It was hard for me to wrap my brain around and get off that train of thought and come up with something. LOL But here's what I decided on.

I got my Silhouette Cameo in last week and it's a dream come true. I decided to do a page in Taylor's scrapbook with the challenge sketch for this week. Everything was cut with my newest machine. It has great detail and the designs you can get are seemingly endless! I still plan to use my Cricut things- I've got way too much invested in them to just quit, but for now my newest toy is taking center stage!! Be sure and check out all the other variations of this sketch at

New Atlantic Hearts Challenge Sketch

May- the time of storms here in the South! I've been trying to get this blog post up since yesterday, but with the destructive tornado in Moore, OK (where I used to live) and the fact that it was pushing this way, I got distracted following the news. That and I had a wonderful calamity with my paper rack! While I was watching the news and trying to cook dinner, I heard a loud bang coming from the scrapbook room and this is what I found-

My paper rack is completely gone! It collapsed under the weight of my paper stacks!

So the project that I was trying to make went on hold and this is the one that I had already made and wasn't really pleased with. The sketch is below-

This is what I did with it--

I plan on giving this card to my granddaughter this weekend for her preschool graduation. She need a little something for such a big achievement!

This is Mom's Mother's Day gift that I made last week. I used cereal boxes and covered them for the pages and then used jump rings to hold it all together.

I saw Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for this week just today and I thought that I had the perfect project in mind for it. Then while I was cleaning up my scraproom I came across a piece of 8x10 clipboard wood that I'd stuck away. I had a "revelation" at that moment and my original project went out and this one came in! this is the sketch that we were given this week-

This is what I did with it!!

I love this! I left the glass out of the frame and I don't know if I'll try and put it back in or not.

Recipe: Clip-board wood
             Cricut and Folk Art cartridge (heart)
             Basic Grey Out of Print paper
             Making Memories metal frame
             Rhinestone Letter "T"
