Creative Fool...

Lately, I have been a creative fool! lol I have gotten a lot of projects completed. Here is a peek at some of them...

First, I had to participate in Kristina's color challenge! Just look at these colors, aren't they gorgeous?
Here is my card:

I added some Stickles to the butterflies to make them pop. I like the burst of color against the white.

Here is another card I created for the Hero Arts challenge this week. The challenge was to use a pocket. I created a pocket by making a mini, paper airplane to hold my heart.....It is hard to see, but those red gems are actually heart shaped....I wanted the illusion of hearts spilling out from the plane. :) It was a fun card to make.

Also, here are the LO's that I worked on during my getaway weekend:

First, I had to make a LO about Alex's obsession with texting. My journaling said that back in the day when I was his age, the cool thing to have was a beeper! LOL

I love the bright colors of the text sayings from Elle's Studio.

Next is a LO about Alex's Freshman Award Night and how he makes me so proud with not only his grades but his overall choices...

Finally, my favorite LO. This one showcases Alex's growth over the last four years. I can not believe how fast time has flown by. Where did those chubby cheeks go?! I think this is my favorite b/c I used a BUNCH of random shots that I had in a box and used a square punch on them. I love that they have a home now.

Before I sign off, I want to announce the winners of the Classic Girly Movie Contest. THANK YOU so much for all of your sweet comments about my weekend. I am over it but it sure did help to vent. :)

The classic movie we watched was Dirty Dancing! My all-time favorite movie! However, we did watch Pretty in Pink too. So, if you guessed either movie, I am going to send you a prize.

Congrats to....


Ladies, email me with your address so I can send out your prize.

I'll be back soon...
