My Wish...

Hello my Scrappy Friends! I have a page to share with you all that I did for Scrapping Everyday Miracles. They are using a great sketch created by Kristen Davidson! I really was drawn to the quilted look. I'm also entering this into the challenge @ Scrap It With A Song. The song was My Wish by Rascall Flatts. I love that song! Also entering into the challenge @ The Kraft Journal challenge #77 Anything goes.  I choose to scrap a newborn picture of my grandson Jordan. As a newborn I wish for him to always seek Gods face.

It's a Green Challenge!

Hello my Scrappy Friends! Kristal from Getting Cricky is having a Green Challenge! Her quest is to reduce the carbon footprint! Well I can go along with that! I live in Florida and there is a company here called Tervis Tumbler. I'm a HUGE fan of Tervis and I take mine everywhere! I have my coffee in the morning and then rinse and have my iced tea in it the rest of the day! Tervis has a lifetime warranty and can hold hot and cold!! So that is one of the ways I do my part along with being an avid recycler! 

 I have never taken a picture of myself before...Awkward!!

Have a Great Weekend :)

***TEAM A June*** Sketches in Thyme #82- part 1!!!

Hello my Scrappy Friends! I'm back to share a page for Sketches In Thyme!! It's my second post this month for Sketches In Thyme and that means it's a 2 pager!!
I picked out these pictures out to scrap of my grandson Isaiah. When Isaiah's little brother was being born he stayed with me Papaw & I !! I got this great idea of taking photos with signs from Pinterest and thought a-ha!!! I should make some signs and have Isaiah hold them!! Well he wasn't cooperating at all. I finally gave up and propped them up. You can see they were a little mangled! If I had one I think a chalk board would make a great sign to hold!!

Here's my page-

I made my own little movie take one sign! 

Check out the fabulous sketch that Maven Tiffany gave us to work with this month! 

Paper-My Minds Eye "Complete Boy", DCWV, misc. scraps

It's Owl Right...

Hello my Scrappy Friends! I sure hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Today is Monday and it's my day to share at the Crafting Family I chose to work with this really cool paper from Pebbles "happy go lucky" line. I really loved the colors of this paper and the chevron look!
Here's the card I created for a friend who just had shoulder surgery and I just love to make cards with owls, so I thought it would be cute to put a sling on the owls wing. I titled my card "It's Owl Right" such a perfect sentiment for this project.
Here's the card-
Isn't this little owl just too cute with it's little wing sling!

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, here's the sketch
