Scrapbook Layout for a Change

Hello and happy Monday!

I've decided to make a double page scrapbook layout for the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #29 - Anything BUT a Card.

I haven't incorporated stamped images in my layouts before, but I'm really enjoying this idea.  Here's a closer look at cutie pie Charlotte.  She's definitely still my favourite image of the Moonlight Whispers.  Although I have a strong feeling that Perfect Poison will be a new contender! *grin*

And here's my second page, of my 2-page layout.  I always make double page layouts.  It's a habit that I can't seem to break.

Well, it's Monday night so I must go check to see what Nurse Jackie is up to tonight.  Anyone watch that show?  I love it.   They have so many interesting and complex characters.  Not to mention the writing and acting is amazing!

Good night!

My 4-in-1 Card

Hello and a very happy belated Mother's Day to all the super duper Moms out there, who happily sacrifice for their children.  I have the greatest mom in the world, so I'm lucky enough to have a wonderful role model who inspires me everyday.

I'm entering four challenges with this card.  I hope you like it.  I used Kraftin Kimmie's, Cindy & Mindy - You Lift Me Up image.  It seems like forever since I've crafted, so I dusted off my Copic markers to colour.  The paper and cardstock are from my stash.  I couldn't possibly remember the company...  I have way too much paper to keep track.  LOL.  I added some embellishments of brown pearls and pink buttons.  The sentiment is also from the awesome Kraftin' Kimmie stamps.

The first challenge that I've entered is for Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #28 - Neopolitan Colour Challenge.  Using the colours pink, brown and ivory was the inspiration for my paper choice. 

The second challenge is for A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge #102 - Furry Friends.  I had not yet had the opportunity to ink up this image, so this challenge inspired me to break it open.

The third wonderful challenge that I decided to enter this week, is the sketch challenge for Paper Sundaes Challenge 17.  As I mentioned, it's been a while since I worked in my scrappy corner, so this sketch was very helpful.

And the final challenge that I entered is for Cupcake Craft Challenge 90 - Buttons.  I couldn't decide on what buttons to use or where to put them...  But in the end I'm pretty happy with how the card turned out. 

Hope you like it.  Have a great night!
