TPE 137 and CQ126

I've been spending lots of time with my kiddos and family these days and so I forgot to post my
TPE (The Pink Elephant) page yesterday.
I thought I'd pop it here in this post along with my Colour Q Challenge page.

Good Buddies - Landon & Ella

This is a 4X6 Page...I'm thinking of doing a little photo book in this fun little size.
I created it using My Memories software. 

For this week's TPE Challenge, I designed a simple sketch:

Hope you will like it!!

Here is my Colour Q Challenge project.
I did a digital scrap of my sweetie pie, Ella.

Pretty as a Flower

Here is the fab color combo:

Hope you stop by and play along!!

My Sister - DS40

Happy Thursday Mornin' Friends!

I have a new Deconstructed Sketch for you today.

One of the things I love about Jen's sketches is they are very versatile...what do I mean by that?  You can totally use the as layout sketches for your scrap pages as well and awesome card sketches.

This week's sketch is a perfect example of a great scrappy Sketch.
Here is my digital scrap page, featuring my 2 sweet baby girls, Hannah and Ella.

My Sister

These two are the sweetest friends.  It makes my heart smile to think of how well, they get along.  
Thank you Lord Jesus for my precious daughters and their love & friendship for each other.

I used My Memories software and several different kits from their kit collection.
You are welcome to grab my code in the sidebar, if you'd like a $10 discount on your own software and an additional $10 to spend on kits.  That's a cool deal and you will not be sorry you took the plunge and started digi scrappin'.  Memories and Photos are worth more than Gold to me...My Memories is Priceless~!

Be sure to hop over and join in the DS Fun and see what the other girls have done with the sketch!

A post bustin' at the seams

Hold onto your hats...I have a lot of catching up to do! :o)

I haven't felt myself lately and although I still don't feel great (I've been fighting something very similar to food poisoning...icky) I have mustard up enough strength to post all the project that I fell terribly behind in posting!

So here goes, HOLD ON....

This page of my Silly Faced Jussie is for this week's Colour Q Challenge 125
I used My Memories Software and photos I took of Jussie this past May.
There is a code on my sidebar if you decide to purchase this software you will get $10 off and an additional $10 to spend on kits!! Yippppeeee!!

This page is for this week's The Pink Elephant-TPE 136
The challenge theme is: Print It

While, Jussie and I shopped around and made funny faces, the other 3 little kids, colored their pages for a Summer Coloring Contest at Half-Priced Books (my husband's favorite store).  Once, I came back over and saw their pages I knew Ella's was the best of theirs, but once I saw hers on the wall with the many other submissions...I just had a feeling she was going to win.  She DID!! A few days later, we got a call from HPB and they let us know that Ella's page had been picked as their top winner and that she was welcome to come in and pick her gift card design (which she LOVED) and they would load it up with $ for Books!!
Although, she was fighting through a lot of pain that day, she had so much fun picking her books!
Thank You HPB!


Here are some A Day For Daisies cards...yep cards...I made 2.

This one on top was for the challenge (there are still time to enter HERE)

Cherry Blossoms

I actually printed off the pretty image and went to town, coloring it in a real-to-life cherry blossom colors...yikes...I had for gotten there was a color scheme...Oh, well, just means I have more to show:


This is my Colour Q Challenge DT Submission from last week's challenge

I used My Memories software to create this digital scrap page of my Hannah.
She is a sweetie and so helpful.
I thank God for her daily!


Well, I hope you have enjoyed my catching up post...hope you liked my creations!

Have a beautiful and blessed day!!
