The end of another Month!

Seriously??? It is the end of July already! Where does the time go? This summer seems to be flying by, along with the whole year. Days are running together and speeding through, while I want time to stand still. You see, my granddaughter Addy starts to school in August. Boooooo! I've kept her when her Mom and Dad works since she was 8 months old. She's like my right arm and I don't know what I'll do when school rolls around and I don't have her here to keep me company every day. She's told me that "I will sit on the couch, watch TV and cry. Quite possible baby girl!

On to this week's sketch. My Mom actually went out and bought a card last week! Oh the horror!! I asked her if she didn't know that I MADE cards!? She has now asked for an assortment of different cards that she can send out, so when I saw this week's sketch I had a card in mind for it.

Here's the sketch-

And here's the card that I made with the sketch-

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #13

Wow I can't believe that it's sketch 13 already! This week I decided to do a layout for my granddaughter's scrapbook with the sketch. I'm so behind on my books! I know that I can never catch up, but I need to put as many pages together as I can!! I loved this weeks sketch and the layout that I made with it!

This is the sketch for the week-

And here's what I did with it-

I'm still so very much in love with my Cameo! This is an amazing machine. I did everything once again with it. These layered flowers are my newest love! They look so hard to do, but I think it's one of the easiest cuts ever! I actually made these for a swap next month, but when I was putting my page together, I thought that these would be perfect with it. I guess I better start cutting again! I need to make 4 new flowers for the girls I'm swapping with!!

Have a great week and be sure to check out the Atlantic Hearts blog here and see what else the other design team members came up with! See ya next week!!

If it could go did!

This is my second attempt for the week. I took my stuff camping to get some peace, quiet and relaxation. It all worked, until I got home. Getting there was a battle to start with. Planned arrival times got delayed and then when we were almost there a gallon of milk shot out of the refrigerator on a turn and split. Milk poured across the floor.....and it's carpet. When we got back my youngest son started tearing out the carpet and I guess that it turned loose termites. They were everywhere, so the youngest took out some spray and proceeded to spray everything, including my bag with my card for this week's design in it. I've scrambled around and came up with this for this week's sketch challenge!

The sketch-

And my take on it-

Time Marches On

Time flies when you're having fun! And even if you're not having fun I think it flies also. We've had such a busy week that I lost track of days and the day before my sketch challenge for the week was due, I realized that I had got busy and let it slip up on me. I got preoccupied making a layout for my granddaughter's book that took lots longer than I had anticipated and yesterday flew past. I knew that I had to get busy with this week's sketch and I think that some of my better stuff comes when I don't over think my project too much! I love this weeks card that I made for the challenge. It's not what was planned in my head to do, but that one is still lurking just waiting for me to start.

Here's the sketch for this week-

Then here's my take on it. I'm really loving the Pooh saying and the character rubons that I pulled out of my stash. I've had them for awhile and couldn't decide what to do with them until today!

Another week, another sketch!

Wow the months seem to be flying by! I can't believe that I've been designing with this team almost a month! It's been so much fun and this week is no exception. The sketch had me going in lots of directions, but this was my favorite of everything I did with it. Here's the sketch this week-

Here's what I did with it-

My take on it has me using some new October Afternoon Farmhouse collection items. The strip is from the 8x8 pad that I trimmed to fit, then bordered it with washi tape. The pig die cut, label and ticket strip are also from the line. I trimmed it with some Prima flowers and used a Viva Decor Pearl pen in Gold for the flower centers and pearls on the border strip I hope you enjoy this and give the rest of the design team some love here-
