Trishutter Card Challenge

Ruby aka Inspired Scrapper was our Member of the Month over at Scrappin Coast 2 Coast for June and she hosted a challenge. She challenged us to make a trishutter card and this is the card that I made for it. This was a fun card and I will probably make another one in the future.

Birthday Card Parade

I had a couple of requests to make 4 different birthday cards plus one that I needed to send out. This first one was a card that my mom wanted to send to my cousin for his birthday. I made it for Casey Lu's masculine card challenge over at Scrappin Coast 2 Coast and I used this month's card sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches. Head on over to Sassy Lil' Sketches and check out this month's sketches. You have until July 5th to enter for one of the prizes from this month's sponsors.

This is a card I made for Katee's challenge over at Scrappin Coast 2 Coast, which was to make a card using up scraps. These were the scraps from the card that I made above.

This is the card that I made for my niece Lauren who had a birthday last Wednesday.

Tina had asked me to make a couple of cards for her friend's twin daughters, one needed to be pink and the other purple. This is what I came up with.

More Layouts from Last Weekend

Here are the rest of the layouts that I did last weekend.

This layout was done with pictures from Thanksgiving last year when we went to Barry's dad's and enjoyed a great weekend with Tom, Tim and Wendy. I didn't get very many pictures but wanted to scrap the few that I had.

When Donna, Lauren and Emily came to visit last June, we went the Aquarium in Long Beach and these are a couple of the pictures from there. I did some layouts with other pictures at the NSD crop, I will try to take pictures and post those later.

These pictures were from a trip to Arizona last October to go to the Bazzill Sale. We got to meet up with a few friends and have dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. I fell in love with this paper while at the crop and just had to get it. I thought it went really well with this set of pictures.

These pictures were taken back in 2005 when Donna, Anne, Lauren and Emily came to visit and we were on the way to the airport. We stopped off at Starbucks to meet up with Kristi for a few minutes before they left.

SITH Anniversay/Closing Crop

I went to my favorite scrap store that is about 3 miles from my house for their NSD crop this year and had a really good time. The next week I got an email that after 9 years they were closing their doors. That was a very sad day for me, in fact I think I went into the store everyday that week hoping that it was a bad dream. They decided to have another crop for their anniversay, which was last weekend. I went to it and had fun again with the same group of ladies. I got a few layouts done so I will show you a couple now and then post a few more later when I get them cropped and ready to post.

These two pages were done with some pictures that I took last fall when Andy was on the coaching staff for a Pop Warner football team. He enjoyed it so much he is getting ready to do it again this year.

Here is a card that I made a couple of weeks ago and just got it photographed.
