DS36 and New Bug & Roo from Hannah Boyd

I am excited for you all to see this card.
Not only do I love the colors and also LOVE the young girl who drew
 the image featured on the card...Hannah Boyd.
She is my 15 year old darling daughter and the sweet artist behind
Bug & Roo Stamps at By LORi Designs.
She has named this lil' cutie, Ivy.
She is adorable and fun to color.


I placed her atop Jen's, The Deconstructed Sketch - DS36
I flipped her fab sketch counter clockwise, but this is the original:
I hope you find time this week to join us at The Deconstructed Sketch!

keeps me on my toes...but when he makes it all worth it!

Here is the color combo this week:

Hope you find time to join us!

TPE and CQC - Scrap Pages

Well, I ran behind yesterday and didn't post my TPE creation, so 
I am adding it here today with my Colour Q creation.

I designed scrap pages for both of them.

The Pink Elephant's challenge is to design something using your favorite color(s).
Normally, my favorite color is ALWAYS Pink, but right now, I am really loving off shades of green.
I really like a green & yellow color scheme, soooooo........

TA DA...I did a scrap page featuring my youngest daughter, Ella.

I used the My Memories Suite Software and a mixture of several kits from MM to create my page.
I know I have mentioned it before, but I wanna say it again
I LOVE My Memories!!
It really makes digital scrapping so easy and fun!
If it sounds like something you'd like to try...use my discount code over there in my blog gives you $10 off the software and an additional $10 to use in the store!


Now, for my 
I designed another scrap page using Arielle's Color Scheme as my inspiration.
This color combo REALLY kicked my booty.
It is certainly NOT my fav colors and to have to use them altogether, well, you 
be the judge...AND don't laugh!! LOL!!

I tried, but it was definitely a challenge!! I just had to add a pinch of green! Yikes!!

I can't wait to see your creations so hop on over and link up your project!!

Deconstructed Sketch - DS34

Feeling a little Deconstructed?
Then, you are in the right The Deconstructed Sketch we have a new sketch.
I have a ton of layers & buttons going on in my card...I think it might weigh a pound...hee hee!!

I used a new By LORi Designs digital stamp that will be released on Friday...her name is

Suzy Puddle Jumper

She comes with a sweet lil' heart, but silly me forgot to adhere it, before I photographed her.  
Speaking of photographing...please excuse the picture quality...I couldn't get a good shot.
I later found out why, when my battery died...LOL!!

TPE and CQC - Scrap Pages

Happy Tuesday my friends!!

I have 2 challenges to share with you today:

The Pink Elephant - TPE 130
is all about HEARTS

I designed a digital scrap page of one of my sweethearts, my daughter, Ella.


The color combo at Colour Q Challenges is Orange and Pinks and Gray.
Sure hope you get a chance to play!

I did a scrap page of myself.  Now, I do not normally hop into photos, I prefer to stay behind the camera.
However, I recently read an letter from a lady who put off getting her family's portrait done and soon after found out she had Cancer and well, you can imagine the sad ending. 
My friend, Janet Bagnall and I chatted about this article and both agreed that we need to get IN photos, not just take them. We agreed that one day we will be gone (maybe sooner than we want) and that our family needs to have photographs of us.

Sooooo, for this reason...the next evening I took this photo of myself.
 I scrapped it for my kiddos.

♥38 years ago today, God brought into the world, a man He designed to be my friend, my fun, my lean-to, my help, my heart, my confidant, my protector,my example, my hero, my love...MY EVERYTHING! 
Happy Birthday Eric!!
I Love and Respect and Trust you, more everyday! Thank you for being exactly who you are for God, for Me and our Children!

Eric giving Hannah a hug goodbye this morning as he left for work. Today is his 38th

 Birthday. The name of the font I used is Birth of a Hero...VERY fitting! My Hero!!


I found this sweet lil' thing sitting right beside & facing the same direction as the baby's 

bouncer. Ella made it out of 2 pairs of Baby Nealan's socks and his baby brush from the

hospital...perfect bed for the little bunny my Mom (Mamaw) gave her yesterday! 

I LOVE her Imagination!!

Day 2 - Twenty-Twelve in Photos

Day 2

Day One - Twenty-Twelve in Photos

Hi Everyone!
Happy New Year and Welcome to 2012!!

I am very excited not only because this is the first day of a brand new and fabulous year, but it's also the very first day of a project I have just started...Twenty-Twelve in Photos.
Each day I will take a photo and upload it here to my Blog and Facebook, then link it to a new blog I created just for everyone who wants to share their daily photos!

This is my first photo of 20.12:

Day 1 - Twenty-Twelve in Photos - LORi BOYD
I wanted to get a shot of all of us for my first photo, however...Eric is at work, Hannah is having lunch with my Mom and Aunt, Nealan is napping, and the other kids are watching the old Twilight Zone shows...I figured I better just draw us, it's much faster & easier than getting us all together! Hee hee!!

I sure hope you all decide to join in the fun!!
