Sketch Contest for Jillibean Soup

I did this layout of me at Disneyland on my Birthday.  So I would remember several years from now I turned the mouse ears into my age and the sketch came from Jillibean Soup.  I used their products in doing the layout.
Here is the layout:


and here is what I did.  Thanks Jillibean for the inspiration.

A Cupcake Reveal for Sassy Lil Sketches

Hello Everyone,

Today is the Reveal for Sassy Lil Sketches.  This has to be one of my very favorites!  I had fun playing with it and used my favorite paper of Girl's Paperie, which I pull out for that "special" card.

Here is the sketch:

The sketch is very versatile, but it was screaming cupcake to me.  So I started playing and came up with my creation.  I hope you enjoy it, I know the person that got it LOVES it.

Paper is Girl's Paperie, pearls, white and red polka dot ribbon and the cupcake wrapper was scored and folded to resemble a cupcake wrapper and I used an assortment of little flowers using pop dots to adhere them.

Some Challenges I did this weekend

I had a fabulous weekend of being able to scrap 2 days and accomplish so much, including DT Work and Challenges.
The challenges are the Pagemaps Blog (for the sketch) and CropStop Blog (for the pearls). 

and I loved the sketch and it inspired me to use a Taylor Expression Key Ingredient Kit using the paper from My Minds Eye -- Stella Rose Gertie.  The Sentiment is from Recollections and the pearls are by Kaiser Scrapbook.  I t just all came together with all the yummy colors and sketch.
Here it is:

Today I felt like completing a layout challenge on Practical Scrappers.  It is their 2nd Anniversary so each day they gave a piece to the layout.  I began pulling all my supplies and today they added the last 2 pieces and I had to remember the time since it was another time zone.  I thought I looked it up correct, but was off and things happened that were not in my control -- the computer didn't want to work in the last few minutes I had, earlier the neighbors to our side and behind decided to sit on the wall and hold a pinata string which drove the dogs crazy and I was afraid they would get his leg.  Who would have thought this would happen?  I don't know them since it is a rental.
Anyway these are the ingredients and you can mix them.

Day One: CARDSTOCK & PATTERNED PAPER (Easy to see my dotted white paper and black and red cardstock)
Day Two: FLOWER (OR FLOWERS) & RIBBON (Pleated ribbon at bottom of picture and flowers are after and before the word dessert and on the buttons)
Day Three: BUTTON (OR BUTTONS) & BLING (Buttons holding up banner and bling on flower, also letters)
Day Four: STICKER (OR STICKERS) & INK (ANY TYPE - MARKER, PAD, DISTRESSING, ETC) (Stickers are the letters and the banner is inked black)
Day Five: FLOSS OR TWINE & SOMETHING RED (Twine is holding the banner up and in the buttons and red is all over the layout)
Day Six: BRAD (OR BRADS) & CHIPBOARD (One brad in center of picture and the banner is chipboard inked)

and this is what I came up with:

I hope you enjoy the layout since we enjoyed the Dessert!

He's 26

Well, I did the sketch challenge at Practical Scrappers using Matthew's 26th Birthday at Capital Grille.  I changed it up a bit using a more elegant color of black and white since that restaurant was fabulous and the Chef there is a personal friend of mine.
Here is the sketch:

Hope you enjoy seeing this.
