My Son Gives Me Inspiration

Hello There :-)

I share a LO based on a sketch listed on Pagemaps blog, HERE.  It is for the Basic Grey sketch contest.    Since, I truly enjoy lots and lots of details on my LO's, I challenged myself, to maintain the details of the LO to mirror the same as the sketch. So here is my creation :-)

Layout Name:  Cool Rider

One important detail, I've tried on my LO's is the use white cardstock as my background---to be honest I really really like the results of the white background.

Product list Details:
Tag:  Daisy D's; patterned paper: DCWV, MME (abbey road); Brads: MME (abbey road); Rubon's: Bo Bunny, DCWV; Font:  Making Memories, Cricut Cartridge (Street Sign); Pen: Zig; Spray Ink: Maya Road Red; Decorative Edge Scissors; Cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy my LO's.

P.s.  I did not forget to post my other LO's.  Be sure to stop by again soon!

Time for a Challenge

Well, another month to create.  Every month I look forward to create a LO using  primarily MME product---this is because at the MME blog, they run a challenge every month, here.  I enjoy all of the creativity shared.  I've created many LO's by participating with the challenges, but it's not until now, that I created my blog, where I am able to share my passion for scrapbooking.  I will upload my designs from previous MME challenges on my blog, so be sure to stop by again for a peek ;-) 

Now, allow me to share my latest creation, remember this LO was created based on the sketch by Anam Stubbington provided on the MME Blog, here.

 I truly released my love and emotion in creating this LO.  I personally enjoy details, lots of details, on my LO's.  I wanted to maintain a feminine feel on the LO, with minimal use of floral dimension.  I ask myself why minimal floral details?  Well I do love flowers on my LO's, but I wanted to try a different approach---to maintain a feminine feel with the use of lace.  I did not use lace, but rather altered my cardstock with punches to give the look of lace. 

LO Name:  Everything

Supplies used:

Paper:  Penny Lane, Dreamy, MME All Boy paper stack
Die Cuts:  Signature Suite, Abbey Road
Die Cut Overlay:  29th St. Market
Rub-Ons:  Magnolia, Laundry Line

cardstock & Glaze pen (for doodle flourish design)

M. Stewart Punch—to create lace pattern on white cardstock
Cricut—Blue Vines (Magnolia Paper Line) & Photo corners (cardstock)

Please take a look at the details.  Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by ;-)
