Partners in Crime

Partners in crime...when little boys get together that is what they become. Mischievous, rowdy, lovable boys! ;)

I used my Guest designer kit from Paper Secrets which is Jillibean Soup's Chilled Cucumber Soup. Swoon!

I based my layout on this month's 12x12 sketch for Scrap n' Art magazine created by yours truly. You can see the sketch with the designer's layouts HERE on their online site.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Another Paper Secrets Sketch Challenge

I have another sketch challenge for you to check out sponsored by Paper Secrets.

Try the sketch (with the added twist of using bling) and add your link to the Papers Secrets blog HERE by May 30th for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate to their great shop.

I couldn't believe how well the sketch and topic worked with this Jillibean collection. My dog's name is Sunny and the collection includes plenty of phrases using that word. :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

May Practical Scrappers Sketch

Happy Friday to you all!
Here is the May sketch for Practical Scrappers and I must say, I really love how it turned out. The Practical Scrapper gals really blew my socks off with their interpretations of the sketch, you can see the inspiration HERE.

I am a cake decorator but my son requested a banana cream pie instead of cake this year. Sheesh!Go figure! :) It was delicious though.

If you dabble a little with this sketch, leave a pic/link of our new Practical Scrappers Facebook Page!!

It's a Bird...Its a Plane!

...well, actually it is a plane. I am loving this month's die release from Die-Versions. Its Planes, Trains and Automobiles!
We all know that scrapping for boys is a bit difficult, so many products and papers are floral and just don't work for little boys. That's why I was excited to see this masculine set of dies come out. The possibilities are endless.
Today I'd like to share a layout I made with the Die-Versions Sweet Petite Airplane Die.

I reversed the plane so it's the direction I prefer and cut out two pieces to make it look more dimensional.

You can find so much inspiration using these dies and many others on the Die-Versions BLOG.

Paper Secrets Sketch and Guest Designer

I am so thrilled to be this month's guest designer for Paper Secrets! Twice a month Paper Secrets has great sketch challenges from various sketch artists.  I created the following sketch for their monthly sketch challenge with a twist for the first few weeks of May.

The twist to this sketch challenge is to use a Polaroid on your layout.

The Polaroid frames I used here are Jillibean Soup Placemats-white frames. You can find them in the Paper Secrets shop.

I used the entire Jillibean Soup "Chilled Cucumber" collection found HERE on the Paper Secrets store.
