These are a few of my favorite things...

...raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.
Well, not really. :-)

Imaginisce Sketch Challenge

Imaginisce has a fabulous sketch challenge on their blog. In my mind, I see this sketch as a card instead of a layout. I don't have a ton of Imaginisce product (hoping to change that soon!), so I mixed and matched different lines for my card.
Paper is A Shore Thing line
Stickers and rub ons are Sweet Cheri line


That's what I am.
Last week, I had the flu. I felt worse than I've felt in probably 30 years. On the positive side, it really reminded me how lucky I am to have such great kids. When I got back from the doctor, Turner asked me if I was OK. And kept asking.
Later that day, Derek and Turner were in the backyard. Cooper came up to me and asked if I wanted him to go outside and play, or if I wanted him to stay inside in case I needed anything. They are such sweethearts. And I am so grateful to have them.
Pagemaps is having a contest on their blog to create a project with the theme "appreciation". When I saw that, I knew exactly what I wanted to scrap about.

Stamping...from me?

Yep! Although, it took a contest to make me do it. Stamping just isn't my thing. I love the way it looks when other people do it, but when I stamp, it never looks right to me. BBB2 is having a contest on their blog to create a spring project that includes stamping and cricut cuts. That was the motivation I needed.

Stamp - Viva Las Vegas
Frame - Cricut Storybook cartridge
Markers - Copic
Paper - Basic Grey Wisteria
