Away we Go and the bicycle from Silhouette America  
The quote a Family that plays together stays together is a print and cut from Silhouette America.

New Sketch Challenge at Let's Scrap

It's time for another great sketch challenge at Let's Scrap ,  
This was the perfect sketch for my pictures I took recently at the Channel Islands State Monument in our home town of Ventura, California.  We got some great shots of the grandkids and actually a picture of all four of us together  
Here is the great sketch for the challenge from Let's Scrap.  

I used Simple Stories I Love Summer paper and some cuts of seaweed 
and ocean wavesfrom Silhouette America. 
Let's Scrap  has two challenges each month for you to participate in.  One on the 1st and one on the 15th so that gives you plenty of time to create your layouts and join in.  Make sure to check out the layouts on the blog that all the amazing DT members have created to inspire you.

Birthday cards for Exchange

Here are some more cards I made for a birthday card exchange at the store where I teach- Busy Bees in Newbury Park, California.  
The card is from Silhouette America and I love the way they came out with this bright paper I had in my stash.

Last SOUS challenge- Wings diecut

We have been having card exchanges the last few months at the scrapbook store where I teach.  First we did birthday cards and then now we are doing general cards like: Thinking of you, Get well, etc.  
For my cards I used the Silhouette America easel butterfly which was quick to cut out 20 of these.  I cut the base in black and then used paper I have had a long time in my stash.  I loved the colors of the paper and perfect for butterflies.  Then I mixed and matched and added pearls to the body.  

The stamp inside says to wonderfully you from thankful me.  There are tiny brads on each side to hold it in place when standing.  
So I am entering this for the last SOUS challenge which is a Wings diecut challenge,  
Thank you to Nanne, Leah and all the DT ladies for this great blog and their great challenges.  
Sad to see the blog stop but hope to see you all and your creations in crafty land.

It's beginning to look a lot like Disney

With the help of some sketch challenges going on right now I completed two more layouts for my 60th anniversary Disneyland album.  
For the first one I used the My Creative Sketches - June Sketch and Simple Stories Paper.  

Here is the sketch 
For the second page I used the 
Shop our Stash - sketch and make a card with leftovers challenge
Instead of hearts I used Mickey heads cut at various sizes with my Silhouette.
I also used Simple Stories paper and washi tape.  
I then made a card out of one of the extra Mickey heads.  The tickets are from paper that is matting the pictures on my layout and the bottom is a 4 x 6 card I hadn't used.
I added magic thread to the Mickey head to make it a balloon.
