Life is Good

I played along with the 3 different challenges put on by the Scrappy Friends.
I used Rochelle's tic tac toe challenge by using mist, Spring Colours and tickets.

I used Brenda's sketch challenge. It's a very cool design.

I also used Kelly's word challenge. The word I chose is "life".

Here is my layout combining the 3 challenges. The photo is of my youngest son Cameron.

PP: Carta Bella
Mist: Heidi Swapp
Enamel dots: MME
Chipboard: A.C.
Other: washi, Cameo, thread
I am also adding this to the Clique Kits monthly challenge.

Sparkle and Shine Challenge #4

Yes I am alive and well. So sorry for being away from my blog for so long. I had to step away from DT duties for a bit to be able to spend more time with my parents. My Mother has had 3 strokes in the last 15 months or so and we are adjusting to a new way of life for all of us.

I was so excited when I was asked to be a part of the design team for the Sparkle and Shine challenge blog but I was away on vacation for 2 months when it all began so I had to watch from afar until I got home. Then I get home and had technical issues with my laptop. Well a few hours later on the phone with Toshiba and I am good to go!!

The challenge this week starts with the sketch below. Use it to spark your creativity.

You will have until Saturday April 25th to enter and have a chance to win a $25 gift card from Winnie and Walter. Very awesome!!
Here is the card that I made for the challenge.

I used an adorable stamp set from Wplus9 that unfortunately is no longer available and my new to me Mama Elephant dies, some Crate paper and of course some Pretty Pink Posh sequins from the Sweetheart Mix.
Can't wait to see what you create!
