ASP Blog Hop!


Its been a while, but its here again! My Scrappy friends and I are blog hopping! This month, we used these adorable Gymboree jammies as inspiration!

And here is what I came up with! I focused on the polka dot blue background and the white daisies. I used some red to bring in the photo colors. I think it all pops very well!

The Daisy's are popped up with pop dots. I used my Cricut and the Walk in My Garden cart to cut the cute daisies.



Now hop on over to my friend Shanna's blog to see what she has cooked up! And while your there, check out her sketches. They are my favorite sketches anywhere!

ACOT Weekend Crop, part 2

Hi again! Here are the rest of my LOs I did last weekend for ACOT's online crop!

This challenge was to have mostly white with red accents and to use a saying. Is white the main color? I don't know, I think I went over board with the red... LOL! This page was created using a Valerie Salmon sketch at Got Sketch.

This was a fun one to do. I had bought this cute vintage paper that looked like a monopoly board, but like a school version. I had no idea how to use it. This challenge had an ad with all these hanging down signs and we were supposed to take inspiration from it. So, I cut up the paper and made a hanging down sign thingy. Thats my sweet Ellie.

I have a hard time looking at this one! Uhg! Those nasty feet print are my sweet little Emma's feet print I found one day on my dining room carpet. GAG! But, I had to take a picture because that is so her. We joke we will have to burn this house down when she is done with it. Anyway, this challenge was to scrap something we will miss. I know I will miss her little messes one day. The journaling includes the lyrics to You're Gonna Miss This by Trace Adkins.
The above two came from my friend Shanna's sketches again. I'm addicted to her sketches!
So thats it. 6 pages in one weekend plus a bunch of other stuff. Not bad!

ACOT's Weekend Crop

ACOT, or A Cherry On Top, is a scrapbook websight that has great online crops a few times a year. They post games and challenges all weekend and you play along to earn points, which in turn you can use as a discount in their store. Its always great motivation for me to get a bunch of pages done.

This one was a Color challenge. We had to color something that was previously black and white. If you see the white strip on the left, I stampe dit with the sprinkles stamp and then colored it in with Stampin' Write Markers. Thats my sweet Baby Addie. Isnt she yummy!
This was an interesting challenge. We used lace, or die cut paper, as a mask. Then we sprayed Glimmer Mist on it. I've never used GM before. Not sure if I like it. But, the page turned out cute.
And this one was a recipe challenge. I can't remember the specifics, but I know I had to have 5 of something (circles) and 4 pieces of pattern paper. This is my middle child (or my mini me) Emma. She's pretty darn cute too!
All of these pages were created using sketches from my friend Shanna. She is amazing. Check out her blog!


I did 3 other LOs and will post them tomorrow! Check back then!
