Scrapbooking is definitely a Labor of Love!!

For some reason, this layout took me FOREVER to finish! I fussed and fussed over it but I am finally happy with the outcome. I used some Rusty Pickle paper that was a gift from my dear friend Lucy and lots and lots and lots of stitching- some with my machine, and some with my pen! I also took the plunge and tried these rolled paper flowers that everyone is trying these days. I used my Nestibilities Scalloped circle to start with and it made these great flower petals along the outside edge! I can't wait to find all kinds of things to put these flowers on!

Thanks for stopping by!

Imaginisce Sketch Challenge!

Imaginisce has a great sketch by Julie Bonner on their blog this month. This is my interpretation of it using Imaginisce's Twitterpated line of paper. It's such a great line and I love how the colors just popped off the black background. If you want to participate, hop on over and check it out- your creations have to be linked to their blog before Feb. 25th using Mr. Linky. Have fun!

Thanks, Imaginisce, for this fun sketch and great opportunity!

Have a GREAT day!

A few more things to share!

Just a few more things to share from the crops that I have been playing around in. This first one is based on a sketch by Helen over at Dixie Pieces and was part of their "Beat the Winter Blues Crop." I am LOVING this line of 3Bugs paper and I'm starting to wish I had picked up two of each sheet! I like how it lends itself toward the clean, simple lines that I like to play with. And, this card is based on a sketch by Tammy who is also from Dixie Pieces. It was a fun sketch to work with and I might just use this one again!
Thanks for stopping by!! Hopefully I'll have a few more things to share with you soon.... ;)

Ok, so I couldn't share this card on my blog before I shared it with my hubby and he got home too late from work last night to share! So, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! I hope you all got to share it with someone you love!

Oh, and this card is based on another Sketch-a-thon sketch by Lucy Chesna!!!
