This is a Lindsay Gannon Sketch from Memorable Seasons DT challenge. The base paper is BG with the PP from MME. I think the colored CS is SEI whereas the white is from Paper reflections. Flowers are from OTC and Prima and brads are from MM. The font of Lifetime is Storybook from Cricut. Fun pictures are of Studio Dance Elite lyrical team competition in Lansing, MI. It was nice to be able to take pictures at this competition. Great dance Miss Nikkie and good job ladies.

This is my recycled packaging LO for Back Porch Memories. The flower is packaging from colorbok and I just painted it with MM paint a few times. Then over the green flower is a plastic circle that I painted with MM glitter paint. The circle comes from the AC flowers. It is a divider between the top and bottom flowers. There is hidden journaling in the envelope. TFL

This Lo was done with the sketch #32 from 52 sketches. Again with the scallop edges so this time I got even more creative. I just wrapped it around and pinned it up with a brad. It's not perfect but I kinda like the imperfection of it. After I spent an hour on it, going back and "fixing" it I thought it looked fabulous. Flowers by Prima, Petaloo and AC; Letter stickers by Current; brads by The Paper Studio and MM; PP by K&I
This Lo is from Creative Sketch #65. This time for the scallop edge I punched holes out of the cs and put the pp and rik rak over half while the paper underneath shines thru giving the effect of a scallop trim. This LO has two negatives in it with the trim and the circle in the middle. I like to use the negatives of circles sometimes because they are so commonly used in sketches this makes it stand out a little bit. Th e buttons on this LO are also suppose to represent a scallop edge. I painted them with MM paint to have them match the blue in the white shirt. The buttons are from my inlaws and quite old. I was glad to find a use for them.
This Lo is from the sketch at Scrap That. I don't have a way to make a 12 inch scallop edge so I used a circle punch, cut those circles in half and then adhered them on a strip of CS and hoped they were even. I think it turned out well. The stamps are by Autumn Leaves; flowers by Jolee's; beads and flower brad by PC; punches by Marvy, CM and EK Success; rhinestone title by Me and my big ideas; eyelets by MM. TfL

That is the theme for this weeks LO at Dixie Pieces with a color scheme of blue, fuschia and gray. You can add neutral colors-white, black, kraft- to the color scheme and that I did. I don't usually hand write any journaling on my layouts but for a change I did. TFL

On my trip to visit the snowbirds, we went to the Eagles hall/lodge (not sure which one to use) and played Bingo. This was Moms first time ever playing. We weren't too impressed by the person calling the numbers. You'd think he was talking to a bunch of old people because he was going so slow.
