Scrapbooking 101....or was it SCRAPBOOKING 911....???!!!

....Dare to share???  My bloggie friend Amy over at Tsuruta Designs has posted a fun challenge - Everyone has to start somewhere right?...
The challenge is to post one of your very first scrapbook pages, come on - you know the ones she's talking about! I started with 8.5 x 11 and only did about 4 or 5, I think it would have been about 10 years ago, then I didn't do any for years, just cards.....anyway.... you need to post a current layout something that you do today....Get the picture...a before and after so to speak. Here the Flashback Friday Version 2.0 info on Amys blog

You have until September 17th to link up....I have never posted a layout before so I have to figure out how to do that but check back here and see what I post and be sure to visit Amy - great challenge, great way to laugh and great way to see how your style has changed!

Recipe Week....Day 155

At 365 Cards this was the recipe we needed to follow - no extra ingredients allowed!  I made this card on Monday and thought I might be able to play along all week but I was far too busy - 

4.25x5.5 Card - natural kraft card base

3x3 patterned paper - basic grey - green at heart
Stitching - used faux stitching
3 rhinestones
Sentiment - "precious" -
1 stamped image - baby carriage

I didn't leave my 3 x 3 as a square, I ended up ripping it in half - I was stumped at what to do with this card - well it turned out ok, I'm sure I will use it for the next baby gift that I have to put together!

Thanks for stopping by!

Digital Scrapbooking ~ Nassau and Pink Flamingos?!!

Yes I know that Pink Flamingos and Nassau Bahamas don't really go hand in hand BUT since it's my page, I thought they would work just fine!!
I used the elements from Studio Gypsy Flirty Flamingo Mini ~ I love the colors and really fell in love with the flamingo ~ wanted to use it on a layout.

All the elements can be found at Studio Gypsy,  including the tag.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Wedding Card

Sketch day at 365 Cards ...well it's been sketch day for the last week and sometimes when I look at a sketch an idea will pop into my head right away other times (most times) it needs to be turned every which way just to make sense!  Well you get the Pam @ 365 Cards would say "a sketch it to be used for inspiration".......
Here is todays sketch for day 154:
And here is my card - it is a wedding card on natural kraft - two things I did on the computer, on the inside of the card it reads "Congratulations on your Wedding Day" and on the circle on the front - I printed a poem onto my Basic Grey paper before I cut the circle.  Other than the circle, I've just used scraps of paper on this one.  The birds and heart are cut from a quick kutz die using bazzill card stock. I've inked all the paper before putting it together.  I really like the idea of printing quotes or verses onto paper - it was fun and I think I might try it again soon!

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday! ~ thanks for stopping by!
