Birthday Cards

Well guess what peeps I am back again today....need a birthday card for my son so I made 2 one for him and one for my son-in-law in Nov.
First off I totally C.A.S.E.'d the first one except for the verse found this on Pinterest and the original was made by Hansi over at Quilting with Paper.....the nice part of Hansi's post is that she has shared the measurements for the squares so goes together very easy.
The papers used on this card are CTMH's Timberline and the sentiment is from Stampendous, embellishments CTMH Triangle Durables.

The second is made slightly different as I added to circles to the front instead of one.

I used Noble Deer from SU on this one not sure about the birthday stamp papers are some scraps from The Paper Studio's I'd Rather Be Hunting paper pack....embellishments CTMH.

Hello peeps, decided to take a break from my cleaning today and share this card I made using Serendipity Stamp set called Grapes also am adding it to this month's challenge....I have had this stamp set for awhile just wasn't sure how to use it, but am very happy with the outcome.
I first stamped my image and sentiment on white cardstock using Rich Razzleberry Ink from I colored in the leaves and grapes with Spectrums added a little Crystal Stickles and some black beads....image layer is adhered to black cardstock and then added to a light lavender and that is my card.

Fly Like An Eagle

Hello Peeps, back today with my second Guest Design Team post for Lasting Memories......this week we had a sketch to follow with a little bit of a twist add something with with that said I had these awesome pictures of a rescued Eagle that lost an eye and is living at Maymont Park hope you enjoy them he or she was so beautiful.

Here is the sketch we were using this week by Ashley Horton Designs.

And my take on it.

The picture in the middle is my grandson Lucien standing next to the statue in front of the exhibit the designer paper I used on this page is called Color Pop and is from Me and My Big Ideas love the bright pretty colors in it.....used my Cricut to cut out the title and label, circles cut with Sizzix Framelits, Birds Paper House Products......sure would like to see some of my scrapbook friends join us this week.

Out of This World

Hello peeps, today is my debut as August guest designer over at Lasting Memories and our theme for this month is "Sky High" so for my first page I chose to using some pictures of Lucien doing something I would not do.

He was strapped to this thing twirling around in the air....definitely not my cup of tea....the papers I used on this page are from Walmart's ColorBok collections and is called Beach House....the stamping is from a Bo Bunny stamp set called Elements used a stencil from Club Scrap and rub-on from Kaiser.....title was cut out on my Cricut and the stars from Sizzix Framelits.

Off to a music show with my mom and step-dad be back later to visit all my friends.
