I really liked all the pink and orange hues of the Cosmo Cricket line of papers!

Butterfly Card

We're having an informal blog hop over at "The Scraproom".  Come check it out!  I used the MY MIND'S EYE MISS CAROLINE "DOLLED UP line to make this butterfly card.  I just love shaped cards.

Gift Card Holders

I found instructions for this cute little gift card holder in a scrappy magazine.  With graduation gifts coming, I made up a few.

Caught a Bug??

This paper from American Crafts Neopolitan Dear Lizzy was just begging to have the jar cut out and used on cards.  Here are two get well cards I made from it.

Tower Bridge

I had a great time scrapping with some girls on Saturday....a really great bunch of girls who love the craft as much as I do.  Of course where there is scrapping, there is always food!!  We had a dynamite soup that was just plain yummy, and a fruit salad that was a nice compliment to the soup, dips and chips, and a Hershey Bar Cake to top it off.  I was able to get three pages done, and two cards but can only share one page today as the others are for upcoming challenges over at "The Scraproom" .  This page was done with My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart "Be Amazing" that was part of the April kit over there.  If you haven't checked out The Scraproom you should, they have great kits made up of the latest and greatest paper and embellishments.  The photos are of Tower Bridge.  We saw a lot of this bridge while we were there since we rented a flat near there.  My daughter, Heather is in the picture on the left. I am so happy to be making progress on my vacation album!

I love Jillibean Soup papers.  They are always so fun and flowery.

I read an article about the 101 ways to use stickles (little bottles of glitter glue) and had to give it a try on this page!

I'm trying to use more stamps on my layouts.  Here is a page of the digital clock that counts down the days and hours until the 2012 Olympics.  It is located in Trafalgar Square, London.

Pages from the crop this week.

Our church holds its monthly crop on the last Friday night of the month.  I was able to get three pages done.  I struggled with the MME Kraft Fun Day paper when I first saw it as I thought it was sooo dark, but on white cardstock, it  worked for me.
