Can you believe it is the last day of March!  Wanted to share a couple 
of layouts I created using March challenges.  Happy last day of March!

Echo Park We are Family Collection
and inspired by a sketch by Brenda Ragsdale
Rochelle Spears: March Tic Tac Toe Challenge

My next layout was inspired by two challenges!

A close up of the 2nd part of the title - tried the make it look like the bike was "pulling" it.

The triangles and all the added embellishments.

 Papers and embellishments from the MME Jubilee collection, flair
from a Flair for buttons, cork pieces and stickers from MME Cut and Paste.

Design was inspired by my bloggy friend, Kerry's layout
and the March Mood board at Scrapbook Challenges!
Thanks for the inspiration!!

Happy Inspiring Others,

Oh, the places you'll go...

Happy Monday!  I cannot believe Easter is less than a week away.  We still have snow on the ground here (not much but decent patches) so it doesn't really feel like Easter.  

Today I am sharing a page that I created using the I AM collection by Simple Stories and Star Student by Bella Blvd. of my daughter with her student of the month certificate.  This page 
was inspired by an image that I saw on Eleventh Avenue (the old Groopdealz).  When I saw 
this image, I immediately thought of this background paper!! 

 Close up of some of the stickers and papers from I AM!

The banner I cut out on the Cricut to resemble the picture!

An airplane I created by piecing shapes together on the Cricut Craft Room program. 
I stitched the  plane route or exhaust with baker's twine and outlined the plane with
black marker.  The heart was placed where we live.

Star Student and I AM are available at The Memory Nest.  
We will be back next Monday with our first Make it Monday sketch for April. 

Happy Scrapping!

Shades of Grey

Playing along with a fun challenge at Red Carpet Studio.  This challenge was perfect 
for our girls night out to see the movie Fifty Shades of Grey.  I created a film reel 
on my Cricut as a backdrop.

Star Students, Star Niece

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this new Bella Blvd. Collection ~ Star Student.  I posted a layout of 
my son's first day of 4th grade the other day using this collection (see it here) and now I 
have two more layouts (and plenty of more papers to create some more).  

My niece loves to wear [faux] glasses.  When I saw this patterned paper, I had to create a layout about her and her signature accessory!!

And a close-up.

 Sketch used from Scrap Much?!
Scrappin' Around the Clock: Sketching for ScrapMuch?

My daughter and her BFF created an interactive book for the science fair.  Their book was actually chosen as a winner so they will be visiting their old elementary school to read it to the students.  Very exciting.

And a few close-ups.  I outlined the circles and did some "doodling" on a couple of them.  

Inspired by a sketch from Sketches in Thyme
Sketches In Thyme: Sketch #141 Reveal!

Like what you see?  Make sure to check out this fabulous 
I think Bella Blvd. is now one of my favorite manufacturers!

Happy Scrapping!
