Summertime fun with flowes at Lasting Memories

The theme for the challenges for the month of October at Lasting Memories is Hot, hot, hot.  For this week you are asked to do a layout with Summertime fun and flowers.  
I created a layout of my granddaughter Brittany with Simple Stories mixed Stack and flowers from my stash.  Brittany is 4 now and really growing up quickly.  The colors of the paper went well with the pictures.  And I used some of the tags.  
Check out what all the designers at Lasting Memories created to share with you this week.  Remember there is a new challenge every Sunday and you have the entire month to link up.

Inside out files from PPBN

Time for another Disney layout but this time it is from the Disney store.  
We had to check out the new Disney merchandise for one of our favorite movies Inside Out.  
They had a beautiful window setup which was great for pictures.  Kenzie got her sadness doll.
It was always so cute when the preview played on tv as she would always say "If I was in that movie I would be her friend."   Then another day Kenzie and mommy went to a dressup event so I included pictures of that too.  
The files are from PPBN files which I love.  
Here are some closeups of Sadness 

And here is Joy 
And here they are added to the layout.

Time for a new challenge at Let's Scrap

I had so much fun creating this layout with the October 1st sketch at Let's Scrap.  
After three granddaughters it is really fun to create layouts of my grandson Micah.  
I even used the cover page of the pack of paper (where it shows the samples) to make the banner on the top right.  
The pictures are of Micah at an office building we go to that has the coolest little ponds and landscape.  He loves sitting on the rocks and watching the water.  
Here is the great sketch for this challenge.  Make sure you stop by Let's Scrap to see what the Design Team created with this sketch. They always come up with the most amazing pages. You have till the 14th to complete your layout and link it up.

New challenge at Lasting Memories-Hot, Hot, Hot

The theme for the Lasting Memories Challenges for the month of October is HOT, HOT, HOT. 
The first challenge starts today with  Liquid Glass, Sitting Around a Campfire, and Sketch.  
 For this page I started with the sketch and used the Cricut Cartridge 3 Birds on Parade.  
Sorry I don't have any pictures to add to it but I am sure I will in the future as we love making smores even in the backyard with our little metal firepit.  
I made large smore sticks and added the title to the end of one stick 
and cotton with brown chalk on it.  
The title is also chalked on the bottom for that toasted look.  
I used Glossy Accents on the flames, birds eye, beak and legs.  
I embossed the bird and trees.  
Here is the sketch to use for the challenge.  
Check out what the other designers have created to inspire you and then join in for the weekly Sunday challenges at Lasting Memories.  You have all month to complete the challenges.

Paper Crafting World- Count your Blessings

Hello crafty friends from Suzanne at CricutcraftinGrammy .  We can officially say it's Fall now, as of September 23, but it sure doesn't feel like it in Southern California.  
 I love decorating for Fall and all the fun activities that go with it.  
For my project I used Melin's file at PCW Count your Blessings.  I used Doodlebug  paper from last year called Happy Harvest and of course used a Fall color palette.  
The paper I used for the sign was wood look paper, and then I used the cute little leaves paper which matched the PCW design and the green plaid paper.  
I used scraps for the cute little pumpkins and leaves so I  had different colors of orange, tan, and green.  I embossed and inked each pumpkin and leaf.  For ink I used Quick Quotes Powder Puff Inks.  
The little tags are from the Doodlebug Happy Harvest sticker page and I matted then and them pop dotted them.  I added two little raffia bows with brown buttons, in my stash, 
at the top of the mat pages.  
Now I have a page ready for some pics of the grandkids this Fall.  

Thank you for stopping by at Paper Crafting World.  
Please check out all the amazing files at 
I hope you enjoyed my project and will join us for the challenge.  
Also check out the other designer's projects each day.  
September Challenge Start Up Anything Goes With Optional Twist The September "optional twist" will be to add a "stamp" of some sort. It can be a digi stamp from the shop or a stamp from another source. It is National Stamp Month for September. Again, it is optional.

Thanks so much for stopping by at Paper Crafting World.  I hope you liked my project and will come back and join us each day.  Also don't forget the challenge this month. 
 Happy Craftin and Happy Fall!

Documenting Diamond pin nights

We took pictures of our adventures spending the night in the Disneyland parking lot to get the Diamond release pins.  I found the diamond cut and Diamond title on Silhouette America.  The Night part of title came from part of a title.  
It was a crazy adventure but we met a lot of sweet people and it was fun.
