By The Way...

I posted a new sketch over at QueenScraps. So go check it out and you could win something this month!

Going Green

Happy Earth Day!
Today I am going green...kinda'...well not really. I'm just seeing lots of green lately. (not the spending kind...I wish!) Erica over at Your Scrapbook Stash sent me lots of yummy goodies to scrap with this month and the package included these papers from My Mind's Eye "Quite Contrary". I just love MME!

We desperately needed a family day so over the weekend we took a trip to the National Petrified forest. We are so close to several national parks here in Arizona. It was beautiful weather too!
Based on a sketch by Pencil Lines.

Leaping Lizards!
We spotted this beautiful lizard while we were exploring the Petrified Forest. I crouched down to take a picture of him and he immediately ran up and stopped right in front of me and posed. LOL! I've never met a friendlier lizard. (He's sitting on a piece on petrified wood by the way too.) Based on a sketch by Sketch Inspiration.

Rough & Tough
Here's my little Mason. I swear, the kid always has a bruise or a scratch on his face and he's ALWAYS dirty. It sort of reminds me of a stain in the carpet -you clean it but the stain always comes back. That's him! Based on a sketch by Sketch inspiration.

Whoo Loves Ya Baby?
I used sketch 59 for this LO of Mason.

Enjoy Earth Day!!

There's no commitment, just buy the ones that look good to you. New kits come out every Sunday.

Up for sale this week is the Crate Paper Girl kit.

Now for the good news... Like any new business venture, we need to get the word out. So Queen Scraps has generously donated the Crate Paper Girl kit to one of our followers. Woohoo! Everyone loves free stuff!
