Hope everyone is ready for another great week!  I myself couldn't be happier that it is Friday!  I've been helping out in the offices where I work for 2 weeks now and I've managed to pick up one of those nagging headaches... you know the kind that won't let go no matter what you do... but it is Friday and a little rest and relaxation should take care of it!  I've got another layout to share with you all today.  There was a challenge at Flying Unicorn where we had to create a sketch and then come up with a layout from it!  Well I will be the first to admit that my drawing abilities are a little lacking but I had fun doing it anyways so I thought I would share it here...  Please don't laugh... Well you can giggle a bit if you must!

Well you get the idea of what I was going for anyways... Here is what I did.

I have also found some inspiration fro this page around blogland and so I'm submitting this to Cheery Lynn Designs Challenges, they are having a shades of Purple challenge this week!  See the gorgeous doilies behind the photo!  That is theres and it is gorgeous and it cuts like a dream!  I was so impressed with there dies!  Wow!!  I'm also playing along again with DYSU challenge, they are having a use a flower challenge!  Love that!!

Simple moments

I got to play around with some papers on the weekend!  I always love doing that!  And what better time then NSD to play catchout on some layouts.  This page came together with inspiration froam a few different spots.  I used the color combo from one of the challenges at flying unicorn!  Man can they throw a NSD bash!  If you didn't get to play with them this year I'd mark in on your calendar for Next year!  Wow what a great time I had and so much fabulous inspiration.

I'm playing along with ScrapFIT's weekend warm up which was to include some fussy cutting!  My favorite paper for this technique has to be Meg's Garden paper, the flower designs just beg to be cut out. They just add that something special to a page.  Use it Tuesday is having a April Showers Brings May flowers, so of course I have lots of gorgeous blooms on here and last but not least DYSU Challenge Blog is having a circles week!  Well thanks for stopping by!

Together Always

Hey there, 

I thought I would play along with My Creative Sketches.  I just love there sketch this month.  I used some of the goodies that I got in the kit of the month club for April at Flying Unicorn.  They have a contest going on for the month of May that will inspire you to break out those flowers.  I personally have a heard time creating a page that does not have at least some flowers.  Here is the sketch I used.

And here is what I came up with...

This is me and my daughter on vacation in Mexico.  I have so many picture from that trip that I really need to get my but in gear and start scrapping them.  so consider this the first.  Hopefully between this Flower Fantasy month at Flying Unicorn and National Scrapbooking Day this weekend I'll be able to start working on these pictures.  I did alot of fussy cutting on this page!  I really like the way this came out.  I'm also playing along at Shopping Our Stash for there Anything Girly.
