Crowned, The Paper Variety and MSW

Crowned Week 2
For week 2 of the Crowned competition going on at Scrapdango we had to reveal something about ourselves. So I decided to reveal what my favorite shoes are. You also had to include yellow and polka dots on the layout. I used Bella Blvd's Lovey Dovey line for this layout.

Crowned Week 3
For week 3 we had to be inspired from a list of songs. I chose "What a wonderful world." We also had to include hidden journaling and use 2 fonts.
I picked the title because I knew I had all these random pictures of animals from trips to the zoo. I used Bo Bunny's Sunkissed line.

Paper Variety Blog
The challenge this week is to add stitching to your project whether it be real or faux stitching. So I took my sew easy tool and purposefully made a not so straight line and then took a pen and added the stitched lines. I'm really happy how the "Stitching" turned out. I used Echo Park's Little Boy line.

MSW Sketch a thon
The sketch a thon is still going on til March 3. I completed this card for day 6 using scraps, YEAH!!! I used a spellbinders die to create the circle for the card it was so quick and easy, always a plus!!!

Day 14
I used more of the Bella Blvd Lovey Dovey line to make this layout of my DD.

For Day 18
I created this layout using Best Creations Let's Party line. My Youngest enjoying his birthday cupcake for his 4th birthday.

Colors Black white and cream
and add bling

I used some My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Papers, a doilly which I spritzed with Tan mist and LOTS of pearls. I also add an all stickles heart above the title. I also created the lace flower myself.

This month over at My Sketch World we are doing the MONTH long sketch-a-thon with a new layout or card sketch posted EVERY day.
Unfortunately I have only completed the first sketch there was an extra challenge posted with the sketch to do a birthday themed layout.

Here is the super fun sketch Lucy made for day 1

and my fun birthday layout using Creative Imaginations papers and stickers. I just loved the balloon stickers. My boys birthdays are 5 days apart so we just did one cake for both of them.
