6/26 H2H Color Challenge - Tulip, Black & Buttercup

The Challenge this week was to use Tulip, Black & Buttercup.

I was very inspired by Jayma's cute card - I absolutely LOVE ladybugs, so I couldn't wait to come up with my own version.
I decided to make a wall hanging using dollar store coasters, to celebrate summer.
What do you think?

6/20 H2H challenge - Scrappy Father's Day

For this week's challenge I used some scraps and things around the house to make this cool gel card for my Dad. Scraps from the Felicity collection, hair gel and a plastic baggie sealed with scotch tape. He loved it! I love this challenge for putting me outside the box and challenging my creativity each week. Thanks for looking!

6/13 H2H Challenge Scrapbook Layout

My challenge entry for this week. I actually had these pictures scrapped before, but when CTMH brought out this new Cherry-O paper I HAD to re-do it! It matched my daughter's swimsuit perfectly! I'm sure this started out as a Cherish or Imagine layout, but I modified it enough that I can't figure out what it started as. :) - And I know I am absolutely insane to cut the velvet ribbon into little squares, but I am super impatient and can't wait for my cherry-o workshop on the go stamp set. Oh well, looks cute anyway!

Thanks for looking! Please feel free to leave a comment.

6/1 H2H Challenge - Sketch

The challenge this week is a sketch:

I - of course, still can't "color inside the lines" so I changed it up a little.
I made a 3D block sign based on the sketch. All the elements are there, just moved a little bit.
This definitely put me in the mood for summer.........
