Another Special Guest Designer

 Today the special guest designer is my daughter.  She has been scrapbooking with me since she was about 2.  She wanted to be like mommy and, of course, I saved the projects she created ~ so precious.  When she found out I was featuring her brother, she wanted to have a chance to shine.  After the long overdue post I give you the layouts by my darling daughter created (on our scrapbook day with my son, at the beginning of the summer).

Happy enjoying your precious children!

Sunkissed with Love

Today I am sharing one of my all time favorite layouts.  Not sure what makes it my favorite.  Maybe that it has my favorite color red with my new fave color yellow.  Or possibly it is the two cute faces in the picture (one of my faves that I have been meaning to scrap for years now).  But none of that matters because I LOVE this page!!  

The inspiration for this page came from 2 challenges: Paper Secrets sketch with a 
Project Life card and Color Me Scrappy color challenge using wood grain.  I was 
not in the mood to search my stash for wood grain paper but the sandy paper 
looked a little like wood grain.

The majority of the supplies used on this page can be purchased at The Memory Nest.
Paradise Beach Papers: Beach Bum, Beachy, Tropical;

Happy scrapping,

My Turn to Create!

Happy Sunday!  I finally had a chance to create a couple of  layouts for challenges two and three.  I have been crazy busy with the kids, my husband having off, ordering new products for the store and updating my site (coming soon).

Twist: use buttons and/or brads

The above layout was created with Summer Stories by Teresa Collins - in stock at the Memory Nest.  
Beautiful papers and embellishments ~ so many options.  We even have the 6x6 paper pad in stock!

Happy Crafting and shopping!

Sunshine ~ Summer Challenge #1

Happy Monday to all of you.  It is sure a hot one here in CT.  

I am here to share a layout and a card that I created with the 
sketch and color challenge. I finally had a chance to create last 
night.  Phew!  Wanted to post something before the second 
summer challenge reveal tomorrow. 

I had so much fun with the sketch and the colors. 
The paper I used is Lily Bee Buttercup. Such fun colors.
The sun was cut out on my Cricut cartridge, Life is a Beach. 

Which do you like better?

There is still time to create a paper craft for this challenge.  
Plus I have decided to leave the link up open for any 
crafters who may join us late.  

Happy Crafting, 

P.S. Make sure to stop back tomorrow for Summer Challenge #2 and to see what the Design Team - the Hummingbirds created.

Pinterest Inspired Friday - Monogram Wreath

My Monogram wreath was inspired by a pin from the blog Two Twenty One.  
Here is the pin link and the picture of the N she created.  

monogram wreath

I am thrilled with the way my G came out.  The G looks nice plain but I 
may decide to add a bow and flowers.  I want to change the ribbon to a thicker 
black one (which thought I had in my stash) because the ribbon I used is kind 
of small.  Then I just need to decide where I want to hang it.  

Happy Pinning,
