Buddy! w/SID

Today’s my reveal day as part of the Double Page Layout team over at Stick it Down!

The sketch we got to play with this month is

double april

And here’s my take on it – sorry for the weird angle.  I had bad lighting in my room today – one of my fixtures decided to die on me overnight so I am working in a half-lit room and shadows are all over the place!

This is my SIL’s puppy Buddy… well, he WAS a puppy when we took the pictures lol.

Thank You Mermaid w/OMF

OpenMindedCraftingCharmTitle_zps4b5c5f42

It’s the second week of our current challenge over at Open Minded Fun Crafting Challenges!  The theme this challenge is “Recycle Something”.  I got to play with an image from Andrea’s Lil Pixels – Lil May Mermaid set.

For the ‘recycle’ part of my project, I used 2 things… 1) is the cardstock used for the digi and the sentiment.  My mom makes these KDrama wall calendars every year for family and friends featuring pictures of some super cute Korean celebrities (like him or HIM… my 2 favorites!!) and last year, her printer started streaking so she had a whole STACK of unusable pages.  Like around 100 sheets.  Luckily she prints them one side at a time and almost all of them had one clean side… so instead of dumping them I took them to print on instead!!

No. 2 of the ‘recycle’ portion are those sequins.  The kids always bring home art projects, and I have a popsicle stick frame Little A made for me in preschool.  There’s a ton of little gems and buttons glued to it but over time, some of them have started to fall off.  I try to glue back what I can but sometimes some little bits make it onto craft projects!  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I pop stuff off the frame to use!!  But if it fell off and I really need it then it becomes fair game!! lol.

This is for my beautiful niece who is kind enough to let me ship stuff to her while she’s in college on the mainland from those places that I can’t get free shipping to Hawaii, and then brings it home for me when she comes home!  Her absolute favorite is Ariel from Little Mermaid so it was a NO DUH pick for me to play with this redhead.

Swing by the challenge… there’s a ton of wonderfully generous sponsors which means tons of prizes to win!!

Bella Bride Sassy w/SSD

Guess who’s a new designer for Sassy Studio Designs?!?  MEEEE!!!!  I have loved this company and these amazingly gorgeous digis since I started collecting digis as part of DTs.  I missed the last DT call because it was during my baby break and I was too sick to do much of anything, so I was so thrilled to be able to apply this time around and ECSTATIC when I got accepted!! Sassy Studio Designs

Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring the “Old, New, Blue” challenge over at Outlawz.  I’m using the digi Bella Bride Sassy for my card today.  And as for meeting the challenge – Old ribbon, New stamp (mr & mrs), blue dress.  She is just gorgeous, but I think I printed her out too small because it was so difficult to color all the details.  lol.  Well next time i know.

Pollen For You w/WD

Whimsie Doodles Banner

I’m blogging over at Whimsie Doodles today!!

This is ‘Pollen For You’ on the This & That digis page.  I paired him up with some bee scrap paper and a fun flower embossed panel.  After coloring him up with copics I added some stickles to his wings to make him shine all over!!

Blogger Boy Birthday w/WD

Whimsie Doodles Banner

It’s time for a new monthly challenge over at Whimsie Doodles!!  This month, we have a color challenge!!  Here’s the swatch from Design Seeds:

TangerineHues610

And here’s my card – the teal color is really more of a seafoam and closer to the dark shade in the swatch… but you know how colors like to mix themselves up on the computer!!

WD-CH-Apr2015

 

I used the digi Blogger Boy (from the People section of the store) because I thought this was very much like Little A, always on his computer!!  I even tried coloring his hair like Little A too.  lol. And his birthday is next month so for once I’m ahead of the game!!

Hope you can come join our challenge this month!   We will once again have two (2) lucky winners.  One winner will be drawn at random to win a FREE Whimsie Doodles image of their choice from our latest release.  And the second winner will join our team as a Guest Artist in a future month!  You don’t need to use a WD image to enter for the random digi winner, but you *DO* need to use a WD image to be considered for the Guest Artist spot… but check out the freebies if you’re need one!

Challenge #33 – Food Related w/OMF


OpenMindedCraftingCharmTitle_zps4b5c5f42

It’s the second week of our current challenge over at Open Minded Fun Crafting Challenges!  The theme this challenge is “Food” – make something food related!

OMF-33Food-kelA

This here is “Nuts for You” from Drawn with Character.  How CUTE is this peanut?!?  I gotta say though, I ‘m not super happy with this card.  I definitely wanted to pair him with this PP but somewhere along assembly I fell outta love with this card.  I think it’s the yellow card base.  It might be something I pull apart later.

Swing by the challenge… there’s a ton of wonderfully generous sponsors which means tons of prizes to win!!

Nurse Sophie w/LBBS

lbbs

Its Fun Friday over at Little Blue Button Stamps!  Today I’m sharing Nurse Sophie!!  Which reminds me, Happy Good Friday to my religious friends!  We are enjoying the day off. :)  Okay, back to this cutie!

LBBS-Apr-NurseSophie-kelA

This little cutie gave me the hardest time to color.  haha.  I initially wanted her pants to be white but it just didn’t look right, so I went with red to match her bows and I’m sure glad I did!!  And I found this scrap of red and white checkered paper in my stash.. it’s actually from a barbeque/picnic set from 2007-ish.  I didn’t know what to do with it then so I just stored it for a future picnic page but I gotta say, it was the PERFECT match on this card!!  And yay me for this CAS card.  I think it’s the first card I really, REALLY like!!  I wasn’t super sure of the placement of the sentiment but it grew on me and I’m happy where it is now.  haha.  I just needed to walk away from it and see it again later I think!!

Come swing by the LBBS blog and see what else is going on!!

#13 For Mom w/ZAC

ZuriArtsyCraftsy-banner

It’s time for a new challenge over at Zuri Artsy Craftsy!  This fortnight, the challenge is #13, “Mother’s Day” and we want you to make something for mom!  The images I am playing with are Lucas and Domi, and they can be found in the Zuri Artsy Craftsy Etsy store!

This is Lucas – what a CUTIE he is!!  I absolutely loved playing with him, and definitely wanted to make something that would be from a boy.  haha.  He was so much fun to color too.  I think it’s the denim jeans.  I LOVE coloring denim!!!!!

Lucas-ZuriArtsyCraftsyDigitalStamps-kelA

And this is Domi – this little teddy is just too precious.  I love his big ‘ol bow tie!!  A good friend of mine just had her first baby, a chubby, adorable little girl so I was planning on sending this to them as a “welcome baby, congrats on being a mother” gift!
