TaDa Creative Studios New line plus a couple other challenges also

TaDa Creative Studios New line
I so LOVE the NEW Just Chillin’ line. It is sooooo perfect for the boys, teens, men in our lives. I used these photo’s of my son dressed up in Dad’s sweater, cap and major oversized shoes to work with the Just Chillin’ papers.

Lately, I don’t think a layout is complete without some fussy cutting and there is plenty of that on this layout. I first fussy cut the borders that are going down the green paper and across the orange paper from the backside of the Snippets & Clippets.
Then I took the Geared Up La La Layers

and used the middle gear as a template which I cut out of the Mini Mes Plaid paper. I finally cut a smaller gear out of the So Stoked paper.

Wow I’m tired just thinking about all the cutting I did, LOL! Holy smokes, I actually used a couple of eyelets on this layout, but they just seemed to work. I haven’t used eyelets in ages.

I actually used all 6 papers in the collection for this layout, plus the Geared Up La La Layers and even included the BRAND New Stickies too. Did I say that I LOVED this collection, yep I did but that’s ok! I think this collection is a MUST for anyone who has boys in their life.

My Scraps and More had a sketch challenge on their blog this week. So I thought I would give it a try. I liked that the sketch featured 3 photos. I started using Lily Bee Designs paper, but I did add other embellishments to it. The title is a little hard to read online its "Balloon Doggy".

My Sketch World has a challenge this month to create a get well card and after looking thru my stash of cards I discovered that I didn't have any. So I decided that I needed to create two cards. I also used the Paper Variety challenge blog which had a color challenge going on which was to use the colors Green, Orange, and Yellow. The sentiments are stickers from SRM Stickers.

Scrappiest Blog Sketch #132

For this layout I used the Scrappiest sketch and an inspiration challenge going on at Memorable Seasons including the quote which reads "Be kind & Be truthful, and your life will be fruitful" plus I used a stamping challenge at Back Porch Memories. The tree is a chipboard piece I have had for several years from Riff Raff designs, very sad that they are no longer in business.
