The cutest cow in town

The pig goes oink, the cow goes moooo.

I wish all cows were as cute as this one! My neice is a doll in her costume.
Check out the cute flowers from petaloo and Creative Charms. I cut out random cow spots from the black glitter cardstock to make it a little more girly. Glitter is always good. :) The paper is from Best Creation.

For my inspiration I used a sketch that I made back in the Spring, sketch 121.

Laytout Inspiration with Creative Charms

Hello there and Happy Monday! Today I'd like to share a few layouts I made adorned with beautiful embellishments from Creative Charms.

Tweet Babies

I used the beautiful Vintage Pearl Brads to add detail to my banners at the top of my layout. I also added a few black Gradient Gem stickers to my little birdie's eyes to make them really pop.

You may recognize the design from my most recent sketch below...


Cuz Crazy

I had fun adding the cute yellow Groovy Petal flowers and a few blue Knitter's Garden flowers. Both are adorable flowers embellies. You'll find a few Amber Gradient Gem stickers throughout the layout as well.

I used Crate Paper's Neighborhood collection for both projects. Aren't these just the cutest papers??

That's it for me today. Have a great start to your week!

Getting my hands dirty

I haven't posted anything scrappy in a few days. This is why, I've been busy getting my hands dirty -literally. My son celebrated his 5th birthday this week. He is a Batman FREAK! So I made this for him...

Speaking of superheros...

Living here in Utah county we are big BYU fans. I made this football cake for my neighbor who roots for the same school as this household.

And finally, watch out! The armies of bees are forming. Though I didn't make these with stingers so we'll be alright. :)

Have a sweet day!

This Smile *Birds Of A Feather*

Happy Sunday everyone! Today is my last DT post for Birds Of A Feather Kit Co. I absolutely love Amy's kits and I LOVE all the gals on the board there. If you haven't checked them out, pleas do! We need to keep these great small businesses in business.

For these projects I used supplies from the BOAF January kit.

I know we can all agree that there is nothing like seeing our kids smile. My Sidney girl has a cute one. ;)
I decided to make some cute, accordion flowers along with the flowers provided in the kit. The kit comes with a huge handful of white flowers just waiting to be altered in some way. I sprayed the large flower with blue and yellow Spritz from my stash, I love the way the multi colors came out.

Finally a simple card.

These papers from Authentique are just the cutest!!! Who doesn't love polka dots? I added a center to the butterflies using a few brads folded in half.

That's all for today.

Happy Scrapping!
