Sparkle and Shine

  I love this challenge blog and am so happy to have had time to play along. I was told last night that my job has come to an end. I am sad but relieved all rolled together. But I know that God has a plan and if I seek after him it is all going to be great.
So today I got to spend lots of time with my grandsons and even stole a little time in the craft cave.
  I am so excited to find time to create a card for the challenge at Sparkle and Shine. I really loved all the inspitration from the design team at Winnie & Walter.
Here is the sketch
And here is my take
This is the first time I have used a lawn fawn die and I am so happy with it. I loved the stitched look so much. May have to invest in more!!!.... LOL maybe it would help me use up some of this paper.....

Thank you for taking a moment to visit me.
Have a blessed day!

Kraft Plus

  I absolutely love this site!!! The challenges and the inspiration from the DT are awesome. But to me the greatest thing about this challenge blog is the quality of the entrants work. I was blown away by the amazing layouts last month  in their first ever challenge and so far the month of March has not disappointed. I hesitate to even add mine because it is a hot mess... some by design some by frustration. But it is mine and the day is documented!
    Amanda had sent me a picture of this banner for Trips half birthday and I never got one made so decided to make it for a layout. The picture of the banner was the color inspiration. And then just kept adding. And of course the challenge this month is glitter so I got to bling it up!!!  Here is the sketch

And here is my take.....

Thank you for taking a moment to see my take on the challenge. Don't I have the cutest grandchildren!!!!!

Hope for you a day filled with many wondrous moments!

  I have so struggled recently trying to get a layout complete.Just nothing I did made me happy enough to add adhesive to it.  I had a block of time that was not designated this morning so decided to re visit it with fresh eyes. Still not in love with it but I find often they "grow on me". But the fact is I have another one for the books and hopefully the mojo will stay with me this time lol. I am also linking it up at Paper Issues Enamored with enamel link up party
  I followed sketch #114 at Let's Capture Our Memories. Here it is

And here is my take... This is my beautiful youngest daughter Amanda and her precious boy Trip. It was taken at my house at some point during Christmas. She just looks so happy!

I used mostly Authentique Hope collection papers.
The flowers are all Paper Studio and the hearts are Teresa Collins.
And of course my MTC for the frame and the title.

Thanks for taking the time to look.
Hope your day is sunny and bright!
