Designer Feature & some LB...

Today is my Designer Feature over at Pretty Little Studio...so go check it out to learn a bit more random stuff about me, heh.  :-)

For some quick eye candy today, here is a layout featuring some classic Lily Bee:






























I used some fun masking/misting/stitching to highlight the birds.
























I tried hand-dying some seam binding...such fun, I'm definitely loving the crumpled binding-bow trend!

Time to play along with Get Picky!

The April sketch challenge has debuted over at Get Picky!

Go check out the sketch (as well as the other designers' FABULOUS interpretations) and play along!  Here mine:


































I flipped the sketch upside-down and enlarge the accent cluster to include a 3rd photo.
I also included a tucked-in tag with the recipe for this sweet April Fool's sushi dessert. :-)




























I added interest with more of these cute Sassafras critters peeking out, and made sure to use circles in several ways.

To play along, upload your layout over at Get Picky and you could win a prize pack from Scrapville...challenge ends next week.

Yummm...

I know I've been a bit slow lately with this ole' blog...lots of creating, just no time for posting!!!  :-)

Here's a challenge I LOVED that I was finally able to get to...October Afternoon's Shape Challenge from last week:


































Kinsey Wilson's example was flawlessly amazing, of course!  She used circles as her shape to focus on...I went with apples:
























Such a fun challenge, using up little apple tidbits from here & there & everywhere...

Lily Bee Challenge...

For the current challenge over at the Lily Bee Blog, I created a super-neutral layout with some photos of my little one in her just-woke-up state, heehee:


Love that sweet little tired face, LOL.

Masking with Prima & Mr. Huey






















Used up the last bits of my fave LB bird paper; created the flowers with my fave LB paper from Domestic Bliss.

Fool Me Once...

So, my children are at an age where they're ALL about April Fool's Day...pranks, jokes, & silly foods top their Fun List on this crazy day!
Last year, I tricked them with gummi-worm filled apples, frogs in their sandwiches, and jello set-up in their cups to look like juice...they were totally FOOLED!!!  :-)

Here's a layout to commemorate this silly, fun day:



















































Do YOU celebrate this day in any way?  Any good jokes or recipes you'd like to share will be put to good use at my house!  :)

In other news, I've got a layout featured over on the Glitz Designs Blog today...am so in LOVE with their latest releases, I can barely stand it!!!  :)
Here's a peek at the layout:


























To check out the entire layout, head over to Glitz...these papers & stickers were perfect for photos of my daughter's first violin recital...love the grunge-chic look!
