I did this layout for More Than Words Challenge.  I love their challenges each month and this one I really love. 

This photo is my daughter and she loves to put flowers, butterflies, etc. in her hair.  I just love this photo!

Here is what the challenge was all about:

March 2017 Main Challenge

Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.
The challenge is open to layouts, canvases and art journal pages only.
Make sure to carefully read our instructions below!
Word Inspiration - BEAUTIFUL
Creative Challenge - BUTTERFLY

What does the word BEAUTIFUL inspire you to create?  You can choose to use the word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired by it.  Please explain in your blog post how the word inspired you, if not already obvious.

For many, butterflies are the emblem of beauty and freedom. There are over 20,000 species in the world and each one is as pretty as the next. For this month's challenge, we ask that you add a BUTTERFLY, 
or as many as you wish, on your project.

You have to incorporate both requirements of the challenge,
the word inspiration AND the creative challenge,
on your project to be eligible to win.
Just look at our designers' creations and descriptions as example.
Also, remember that you must include our board image
and a link to the More Than Words blog in your entry post.


Please see my close-ups!

I used lots of butterflies!!

I used a stencil from Prima and then used watercolors on the background.

I used a die cut from Tim Holtz and the card with flowers I cut out from papers - 49th and Market.

I cut these flowers out from 49th and Market and then added flowers and leaves which are die cut from Tim Holtz.

Thank you for looking and have a great day!

These are the words that best describe what really makes me happy about spending lots of time with my grandchildren. I cut out the butterfly and added stickles.

Let The Sea Set You Free

Hello all!  I did this cute mini album for the design team at The Crafty Scrapper.  It was rather easy to do but it took me awhile to come up with a plan.  Anyway please see my creation.

See what all I did inside this mini album!

As you can see there were a lot of pages but well worth it.  Please go to The Crafty Scrapper and you will find all that I used to create this mini album.

Thank you for looking!

I did this layout for CSI Color Stories Inspiration.  This was a fun layout but it really took a while for me to think what I wanted to use. 

Please see my layout:

This was the challenge:

The Scheme:  Used all 5 colors
The Evidence:  Stars, Animals, Circles
The Testimony:  Disney - Adventure awaits you, It's the little things that make life big,
Live in the moment

We were to use this sketch and I think I did!

We went to Disney in January because my 8 year old granddaughter was asked to play in the Disney International Tournament.  You had to in invited and she plus 5 other girls on her team went.  While we were there we enjoyed 3 days at Magical Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Universal Studio.  This was a very  fun trip.

Here are the close-ups!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

You Are Perfect

I did this sweet layout of this special little kitty for the design team at The Crafty Scrapper.  The papers that I used are from Photo Play.  They are so cute.  However, I am very allergic to cats but I saw this sweet photo and knew I had to use it on this layout.

This was a very easy layout to complete.  It is so different from most of my layouts which is very time consuming.  

I used distress ink on the corrugated cardstock and on the little circles which I punched them out.  Then I added sprinkles.

I used these pretty flowers from Prima.  I love them.  I then added some extra flowers.

I cut out the kitty foot print, the cat face with Meow, and the little butterfly.  

I really enjoyed working on this and please go by The Crafty Scrapper and have a look at this layout.  On the back you will find all the items that I used.
