MFT Sketch Challenge #WSC334

This card started off being a birthday card and then morphed into a thank you card.  Does that ever happen to you? I like the way it turned out however so I am not going to complain about it.  I used this fabulous sketch from My Favorite Things:

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday We're Going Around In Circles Challenge.

That's about it from me from this holiday weekend. Back to work (ugh) tomorrow.  Thank you for stopping by and checking out my card.


I Love Summer -- May Kaiser Craft Blog Challenge

I have not had much chance recently to do any crating but I am making up for it this weekend.  This is my 4th layout that I have created this weekend.  I used all Kaisercraft materials except for the ombre background paper and the twine on the tag.  I played along with their blog challenge and I went right across the top row using a photo and patterned paper, several die cuts from their sandy toes collection and a large circle. 

I am also entering this page in the Monday Simon Says Stamp We're Going Around In Circles challenge.

Thanks for stopping in with me .....I hope you had a fun and relaxing Memorial Day weekend.

Rock This Joint

Wow! It has been 2 weeks since I last blogged.  And it has been a busy and difficult two weeks.  We moved my Dad into an Assisted Living facility.  The first several days there were quite difficult for him but he has made a friend, loves the food and we have his apartment furnished very nicely for him. With this being Memorial Day weekend, I finally got a bit of time to get creative. I finally scrapped these nearly 7 year old photos from my granddaughter Abby's last trip here to Florida.  In 2 weeks she, her dad (my oldest son Matt) and her little sister Izzy will be heading down here again for nearly 2 weeks of fun, sun and spoiling. I used this sketch from Stuck? Sketches:

Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog.....hopefully it will not be 2 weeks before I post again.

Florida Hockey Road Trip Revisited

For the last couple of years my husband and I have gone to see our favorite hockey team...the Chicago two games against opponents here in Florida.  They always seem to lose when they come to Florida but we have a good time regardless. When I saw this sketch at Scrapbook and Cards Today last Saturday (National Scrapbook Day) I knew I wanted to use it to document this year's hockey road trip.

I squeezed in a few more photos but tried to stay as true to the sketch as possible while still making it mine.

Well we are off to a Jimmy Buffet concert....should be fun.

Kick Some Bass

Tomorrow is my brother-in-law Bob's birthday.  He lives in North Carolina and is an avid fisherman. I bought this stamp set from Your Next Stamp especially with his birthday in mind but have used it several times is a fun set to use.

For this card I used the current sketch from Your Next Stamp and am entering it in their Sketch Challenge #63

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday The Great Outdoors Challenge

Well, that is all for now....I have a busy day with a very full to do list. I will be back later with more to share.

Our Graduate

This is another page for my scrapbook album....most of my pages get put in scrapbooks and given to the person who is the subject of the grandsons, granddaughters, my sons....they all have a scrapbook in progress. When it gets full, I give it to them and start another. But this page is mine, all mine. What an awesome picture this is of the whole Farley family....even my ex-husband is in the photo. It was a great day to get together and celebrate Jacob's 8th grade graduation.

I used this awesome sketch from Freckled Fawn:

 I used lots of Freckled Fawns fun embellishments: the big YAY, the silver puffy stars and the aqua washi tape at the bottom of the page. I am entering it in their April Sketch Challenge

Thanks for stopping by...ugh it is Monday tomorrow.  Not my favorite day but after work I think I will make a fun birthday card for my brother-in-law. A little crafting always makes a Monday better.

Looking Good

I love this selfie of Dave and I from last December when we got our new glasses. (He wears glasses all the time while I only wear mine for reading.) I saw this sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap and knew that this picture was perfect for this sketch.

I am so proud of myself that I used all four of the sketches from Sketch-n-Scrap this month. They have an awesome prize from PinkFresh this month which would be great to win, but more importantly I got 2 pages done and cards made and sent out. Yay! I feel very accomplished.

I am also entering this page in Elle's Studio Challenge Day Work An Angle Challenge. Everything on this page is from Elle's Studio.  Another accomplishment is that I was able to enter 3 out of 4 Elle's Studio challenges this month....go me!!

Well I have a little free time this evening and I just might see if I can put together another challenge layout. I hope you are enjoying your weekend....I am.
