Cute & Cuddly~

If you’re ever wondering what I might be doing….most likely it’s cuddling this little cutie.

My layout~

Cute-&-Cuddly

Seriously, I could hold her all day long.

In fact, my hubby claims I’m spoiling her rotten by holding her too much.

Like that could happen. He he.

Happy Father’s Day!!

This little guy just makes me smile.

Meet Milton from Stampingbella.

My card~

Favorite

I colored him for Day 19 of the 30 Day Color Challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker.

30 Day Color Challenge 2

For whatever reason I thought he’d be perfect for my Father’s Day card for my Dad.

Favorite-Close

Especially when paired with my sentiment.

Favorite-Inside

Funny, right?

At least I think so.

My sister, Amy, might not agree.

I saw the phrase somewhere online Friday.

I think it might have even been a stamp, but I can’t remember where I saw it or even find it now.

So, I simply used Photoshop and my printer to create my version of it.

Underneath Milton is a printed paper from Simple Stories I Am collection which lists many of the qualities that I think my Dad instilled in me.

That makes my card a little sweet and a lot sassy.

Just like me.

School’s Out~

So, let’s play!

Lately I have been playing along with several of the Some Odd Girl Community Crop Challenges.

30 Day Some Odd Girl

My project is a bit of a stretch for the Summer Fun Challenge: To show some summer love by doing a summer theme, using a summer stamp or using summer colors!

However I figure school is out, summer vacation is starting and it’s time to play.

And that is exactly what my little kitty is doing.

While these aren’t the first colors I think of when I think of Summer, they are from Fancy Pants Down By the Shore Collection.

And who am I to argue?

You’re Kidding Me~

I know I’ve already told you about Hartly deciding groundhogs were out and warthogs were in for this year’s Groundhog’s Day when I included it in her Hello 2015 mini album.

But, some stories need to be repeated.

Especially in the album I plan to keep.

So, I made a two page layout using the fabulous Fancy Pants Me-ology collection.

You’re Kidding Me~

Warthog Kidding Me

The bright and bold colors and patterns of the collection were perfect for my colorful story.

Apparently I’ve gotten quite the reputation for making mainly one photo layouts, so I created quite the stir when the ladies at my retreat table saw my second page with two pictures on it.

Happy Warthog’s Day~

But, the pictures were so cute I couldn’t stop myself from using them all.

How Much I Love You~

Can you handle one more bear project from me?

I hope so.

A few weekends ago I spent the entire weekend having the best time with my scrapbooking friends at the Doodle Crew Retreat.

While I was gone my littlest, Hartly,  was extremely concerned she might forget what I looked like.

Thanks Dad!

It seems he tells her that all the time although he sees her several time a week.  Grandparents!

And since I didn’t let her keep the picture she snapped of me while I was in the shower that morning, I made her a card to show her how much I love and missed her.

My card~

Bear Card

I thought the bright colors and bold prints in the Fancy Pants Me-ology collection were perfect to pair with my Mama Elephant Bear Hugs Stamps and Dies.

Bear Card Inside

This was also perfect for the Cricut Circle Stashing Thru The Snow Challenge: Pick A Friend.

And my little friend was so happy to receive this card.

She even handed over her Leap Pad to let me make sure she had deleted those shower pictures. Shew!
