Stuck?! Sketches #1 for April

It's that time again! I can't believe it's already April. We are being tricked by the nice weather. I expect we'll be wearing shorts this weekend. At least the kids and hubs will be ;) We always have one more snowfall before the end of May. It's just a matter of when....
Here's the first sketch from Stuck?! for April:
And my take on the sketch:

Thanks for stopping in! I will be back tomorrow with layouts from the April kit at SGD!

PS -Thanks for all the great suggestions ladies! Rub-ons are something I never think of and would be perfect for cards. I will have to look at the Stampin' up stamps too!

It's a sunny day and I have two little bundles of sunshine that make each day a new adventure! I finally got to play with my latest SC kit! So many fun items in there! I found it so hard to decide what to use...

The sunshine is a new wood veneer that SC put out with March's kit. Played with layering a little mist onto it and love the results! Thanks so much for stopping in. Be sure to check out the sale up at SGD. Hope you enjoy the rest of your week!

Express yourself

Happy Wednesday! I had a great day off with the kids yesterday, but not a single picture to show for it. We were just too busy having fun. I have lots on the go in terms of layouts but only a few I can share. Here's one:
Can you see the border that I cut from the Making Memories laser cut? Hard to tell on the laptop... Hmm... Love the Origins line by BG. So pretty and versatile. I also really enjoyed using that Hambly doily rub-on. I need a good yellow mist and maybe some turquoise. Any suggestions (non-glitter versions)?

Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for stopping in!

A layout (Stuck?! sketches), fun news and thoughts...

Happy Sunday! It is dreary and cold out. I am longing for more sunshine! The kids often suffer cabin fever on days like these. A lot on my mind today so I will start with the easy part, the sketch
My take on the sketch:

Love the pics of our daughter dancing! The pp is popped up so the journal card has a little spot to slide in behind.

This little bird...

Hello! I am glad that half the week is already over. I am already looking forward to the weekend. I have lots of layout ideas and a few assignments. That's what nap time is for!

I am back today with a layout to share. This is Alden when he was just starting to crawl around in the backyard.

Every time I pull the camera out, he heads straight for it. I can't tell if it's the electronics that he's into or if he just likes reviewing the pics. Maybe a bit of both. I spent a lot of time getting the colour of the heart just right. It is a Heidi Swapp Invisibles and I used Ranger ink as well as mists to colour it. There was a lot of applying colour and wiping it off again. It was fun to play and see what would come of it!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your week.

Sweet boy

Good morning! A little early morning posting to get the day started. I have been wanting to get into my next few pages. I loved my Studio Calico kit from January and do have a few to share. I admit that I am partial to blue. Especially when I have such nice blue eyes to inspire me!

Our little guy loves having a bath after supper. He has become particularly good at providing direction in the bubbles department. Hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping in!

PS SGD will have the next 12 hour sale up tonight. Check it out here!
