So Happy LO for Counterfeit Kit Challenge

 Good Morning, wow we're already half was through March! Yes Spring is almost here and you can feel it in the air :)  Welcome to the 2nd challenge over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and our month's host is Tara and she has challenged us:

 What Makes You Happy
For this challenge, I am taking the cue from one of the papers that says Happy Happy Happy.  I want you to create a layout about something or someone that makes you happy!! 
So for this challenge I decided to use the wordy paper that I had in my Spring Days kit for my main background and built up from there. This man of mine makes me happy and so does our fondness of Minneapolis Moline tractors makes us very happy as it's a hobby we both enjoy together. 
Using a sketch because it makes me happy, I've been doing a 100 day cutfile challenge so had to include a cutfile to the layout and with it being Calvinball month I had to add a few things to get me some points for the day too :) and with the diamonds cutfile that was perfect way to show what my diamond is on the layout :) Had fun playing around with alot of words from my kit too for this layout :) 
Thank you for stopping by today and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world. I hope you join us over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog for this fun challenge.

Solo Performance LO for Sketch N Scrap challenge

  Good Morning and welcome :) The middle of March and we're starting to see signs of Spring in PA, this makes my heart happy :)  We got a fun challenge over at Sketch N Scrap for the day. A wonderful sketch from Lisa to play with today.

 and this is what I created with it:

It made for a great way to add layers to my layout, as I'm playing Calvinball this month a lot of additional things were added to the layout that I wouldn't normally add but I think it gives in character just like all the characters in the play. There is room for a cutfile and stenciling as well as layering so make sure when you look at the sketches you see how it fits to you style of scrapping too.
So now it's your turn let's see what you can do with the sketch.Thanks for stopping by today to see what I created and can't wait to see what you create from this cool sketch over at Sketch N Scrap blog.

Celebrate Card for Sketch n Scrap challenge

 Good morning and welcome to the 1st card sketch of March over at Sketch N Scrap challenge blog. I love this card sketch that Lisa created, here's the sketch: 

This is the card I made for the Grandson, masculine cards can be a bit tough at times and so glad that a sketch like this comes along to make an easy Birthday card. 

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I created and can't wait to see what you create from this cool sketch over at Sketch N Scrap blog.

CKC - March 2022 Kit Reveal - Spring Days

  Happy March! March is such a happy month for me as Spring begins! Love to see the beauty of the Spring flowers and seeing the Birds start to migrate in the area. The weather starts to get warmer and more time is spent outside :) So let's check out the inspiration for the month. First you should have arrived here from Tara's blog  I'm excited to see what she has put together this month. Speaking of Tara she is also our host this month and she has chose a fabulous spring theme kit: 

I chose a Citrus Twist Kit from March 2020. 

Life Crafted "Weekender" Single Kit

This kit is just HAPPY!  Lots of bright colors to choose from! 

I chose Anna Veach from Piece Craft Love as my Guest Designer for this month! 

Her storefront:

"I'm Anna, the owner of Piece Craft Love.

Piece is a nod to my quilting roots and I love everything fiber art and texture! Craft refers to the fun I have playing with paint and paper and glue and stickers! Love is for my customers (many whom have become friends) and my love of sharing my joy of creating with anyone who will listen!

You can find me on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube to see all my crazy adventures in paper and fiber crafts. Just look for @piececraftlove."
Welcome Anna to Counterfeit Kit Challenge! 

This is the kit I pulled together

Spring Days

My papers came from mostly Pink Fresh Studios with Simple Stories I am collection for the 6X8 paper pad. I was drawn to the yellows in the inspiration kit. With it being Calvinball this month I made sure to have lots of embellishments to choose from too.

Papers are a fun variety that is saying bring on Spring!

The alphas, bring in the gold that the kit had in theirs plus a fun gold word stickers too with a side of blue.
