Another Inspirational Lady to Check Out!

If you happen to be keeping an eye on my blog, you read about my meeting Georgia Keayes... that same morning, I met Sherry Mendoza - another fabulous lady from Scrapbooking Memories Magazine.  I just checked out her blog, and in addition to the super giveaway she currently had going on, I love her layouts that she posts as well!

Drop by and tell Sherry that Cynthia from CanEHda sent ya!  :)

Last one for now: My Fairy Girl

Ok, so I should be packing for our overseas trip, but I really wanted to get at the June Sketch Challenge over at A2Z Scraplets:

My Fairy Girl is all done in Kaisercraft, with Airy Fairy papers - which I totally fell in love with when we went to the outlet a few weeks ago.  Whenever I scrapbook my daughter's photos, I can't help but go crazy with the bling and sparkle... What do you think?  Did I go overboard?  You can't really go overboard with bling, can you?

I better go get some cleaning done, or hubby may have some other ideas on bling...

Look! It's another Sketchy Thursday...

*** Just found out that this layout was a Sketchy Thursdays DT FAVE!!!  Woohoo! ;D***

Love, love, LOVE this photo... and am glad I finally found the inspiration to scrap it.  It was difficult to not automatically go with a cute bug paper and fill the page with bugs and worms, especially with all the cute papers Kaisercraft has put out recently.  I was happy to find this patterned paper, and recreated the flowers from it to match.  

A little stamping and doodling later... A masterpiece is created... :D

A New Blog to Follow - And a RAK to Win!

I met an absolutely lovely lady today - Georgia Keays is a Scrapbooking Master with Scrapbooking Memories Magazine who presented a workshop today at the Papercraft Expo.  She very generously shared an hour of her time to describe her experiences in "getting published".  It was a wonderfully informative time, and I promised to start stalking her immediately as soon as I got home... so I am!

I checked out her blog and she is giving away a fabulous RAK right now:

The yummy Pink Paisley RAK

If you're reading this now, get your butt over to Georgia's blog and check it out!

Still going... July GDT Spot at Sketchy Thursdays...

Another day, another challenge.  I really liked the GDT sketch for July over on, so I decided to have a go at it.  The colours of the Kaisercraft Skull Girl line fit in well with my daughter's hat and big mischievous smile in the photo.  
I've also been playing with more bling and doodling and brought it into this design.  Very happy with how doodling around the design on the paper made it *POP* out.  

On to the next project... =D

Sketchy Thursdays... on a Tuesday...

Still trying to keep at the challenges and stretching my imagination, here is a layout for the latest Sketchy Thursdays call:

I've had the paper and the photo for a while - I have no idea why I haven't put them together before... but I think I'm happy with the overall result.  :)
