This weeks challenge requires the use of certain Stampin Up papers which I don't have, (I'm placing an order Monday with my consultant for ALL the solid colors) but I looked through my stash and came up with colors very close to the ones in the pillows. Notice the colors of the bubbles in the picture!! I punched the flower from a 3" square of blue then softened and curled the petals using the McGill Paper Blossom molding mat and large ball stylus then chalked the edges. I tied on a button using brown twine and attached the flower with pop dots for dimension. The left over blue square gave me the mat for the picture! Summer Fun sentiments are computer generated.

Pepperment candy! Now that brings back childhood memories. Our stocking were always filled with fruit and nuts and if any candy, it would always be peppermint.
PPA 141 sketch challenge
In keeping with the peppermint theme, I used the candy stripe background paper then added strips of red. For the lollipop, I used Stampin Up 3/4" punch and cut out 15 circles, overlapped and glued into a circle . Added star dust Stickles to the white areas then glued to a lollipop stick. Tied a simple bow and added the computer generated sentiment.

In 2009 I had printed out a page layout done by Julia Moss on the Cricut web site so when I saw this weeks challenge from Use It Tuesday , I knew exactly what I wanted to try.
I began with the blue sky 12" x 12" paper. The gray cardstock was cut using the Creative Memories wave tearing tool and I drew the broken lines with a white lead pencil.
Following Cricut cartridges and setting were used;
Locker Talk - school bus- 3 1/2 inch, notebook paper- 2 1/2, 3 and 3 1/2 inch.
Zooballoo -grass 1 1/4 inch and tree at 5 inch (then I flipped before putting on the page and cut away left branches.)
Printing 101 - bus driver and students cut at 1 1/4 inch.
Beyond Birthdays - boy and girl cut at 2 inch
Doodlecharms - Sun at 3 3/4 inch.
I am so happy with the completed project. The notebook pages can be for comments or area to paste pictures.
The following picture is Julia Moss' page that gave me my inspiration.

Fall is in the air--------------
well, not quite but August will soon end and cooler temperatures will be on the way.
This weeks Mojo Monday challenge 254 layout was ideal for this theme. I had a Fall Scrapbooking Kit from Retail, Inc. that contained the patterned papers and the leaf ribbon. The sentiment is stamped with a Studio g clear mini stamp and the metal green leaf I happen to have on hand. Final touch is the three gold brads in the left hand corner. All this mounted on the orange brown and tan in keeping with the fall color scheme.

Our challenge this week is to make a project using black and white or bling or "mash it up" by using black and white with bling. I chose the latter and on this card I used black and white paper for the background then added Creative Memories black and white paper flowers. The center of the large flower is a "Soar" epoxy sticker from Studio 18. I added three black pearls in the upper right hand corner and white pearls in the center of the small white flowers.

I love the layout for this weeks challenge and had so much fun deciding what type of card this would be. I purchased this Inky Antics Turtle Stamp at a show several years ago and am so pleased at how he turned out. He is stamped on white cardstock, colored with Copic Markers, punched out with a circle punch and mounted on a scalloped edge circle that was created with my Cricut, using Sweet Treats cartridge, Flower/shadow setting, cut at 2 1/2 inches.
The turtle print ribbon is from a variety pack I found in the dollar bins at our local Target. I drew the seam stitching on all the edges and the sentiment was generated on my computer.
The sentiment on the inside of the card was also computer generated.
This little turtle is from Dimensions Mini Stamps #98065. Isn't he adorable!

This weeks challenge is to make a project using a Stick Pin In It, Vintage Project with a Stick Pin In It or Mash It Up and do both.
Materials used are a Studio g rubber stamp for the sentiment, Fiskars punch to make the double edged lace border, (which gives it a Victorian lace look), colorful striped ribbon and stick on pearl accents.
I taped the ribbon over the lace then attached the bow with a pearl tipped stick pin. Choice for background papers were taken from the colors in the ribbon.

This week Pals Paper Art challenge is to use Summer Starfruit, Marina Mist and Real Red.
I don't have the exact colors but think my selections for the three squares comes very close.
The background paper, ice cream cone, drink glass, sweet treat and summertime stickers are from
DCWV Summer speciality paper and sticker packets purchased from Joann's several years ago.
This also qualifies for entry in the USE IT TUESDAY CHALLENGE as I cut the background paper from the following 12 x 12 uncut scrapbook paper.

Our challenge this week is to use the round or square template so I decided to do a 12 x 12 scrapbook page.
This picture was taken for my Granddaughter's 9th birthday. The polka dot paper reminds me of sprinkles then I picked up the colors of the ice cream cone on her shirt. The two sentiments are from a
DCWV Summer Speciality Sticker Stack purchased at Joann's several years ago.
