LM #141 - Stamp it with a Song

Happy Sunday! It's a new challenge at Lasting Memories, a fun one to! This week we're challenging you to "Stamp it with a Song". We want to see a song title/lyric as well as a stamped image on your layouts this week. Here's my take on the challenge!

For my LO, I cut the lizard/lyric out on my cricut (Life's a Beach) and for the image, I stamped then did some paper piecing as well as added some liquid glass to the ice cubes!

My trusty flip flaps allowed me to add more photos to my page


Come on over and join the fun!

DSC #37 - Photo Inspiration

Hey all! This weeks challenge at Digitally Sweet is a photo inspiration! Denise showed us this photo .. 

And I have to admit, I am not happy with this, but I have no creative juices these days. I didn't want to miss the challenge though. I thought a cute card face would work.

So you see, it doesn't have to be hard - it can be quite simple really!! This certainly is :) Come on over and give digital a try. We have links to free software so you can try before you buy. Cya there!

LM #140 - Alphabet Challenge

I'm a little late on this one! Today's a new challenge at Lasting Memories and we're challenging you to an Alphabet Challenge! Come on over and join us! For my LO I chose "K" for kayaking! My amazing hubby bought us 2 kayaks yesterday!! I tried it last yr for the first time and loved it and have talked about it since. Ashleigh and I had a chance to get out on the lake today and brought along my little waterproof camera. We had a lot of fun!! Days like this make me love and appreciate just how close we are to the water.

LM #139 - Inspired by a TV Show

Happy Mother's Day to all the very special women in my life!

Today marks a new challenge at Lasting Memories and here it is! "Inspired by a TV Show" and crazy enough, I had JUST made 2 layouts for my wedding album, which I've just decided to do! I'm basing my challenge LO on "My Fair Wedding" today. I may not have had a planner come and do my wedding, but I had so much help from the most important people in my life - my family and we pulled this gorgeous day off in 4 mths! From planting roses to dress shopping to food to walking down the isle. We did it!!!

(remember, you can always click the photos to enlarge)

These pages are done using the "For Always" CTMH WOTG kit

Some come on over to LM and show us your LO inspired by a TV show! We'll see ya there!

DSC #35 - Flowers for Mother's Day

Good morning! Time for a new challenge at Digitally Sweet and this week, Denise has challenged us to 

"Give Mother flowers for MOTHER'S DAY"

Since we're being sponsored by Cedar Chest Designs, we each chose a little something to play with. I chose the image "Spring Planter" and actually colored it using PSE9 and then used it as the background for my project today! Yes, with digital images, you can use them as backgrounds as well as images. Cool, right? I added the light effect in PSE9 as well. The sentiment is from my MMS kits.

Come on over and join us for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate! Cya there!

Thanks! Have a FABULOUS day! I know I need to make some cards and stuff but it is just SO nice out and we're waited so long that I just can't bring myself to sit inside!! Hope the weather is amazing where you are to!
