Almost done!!!

With the school year that is ;} Tomorrow is Cameron's last day as a 6th grader and I can't wait to NOT have to get up before 6 am and leave the house by 7am to get him to school anymore!! It was killing me! Then, on Tuesdays & Thursdays Finley would have Pre-school too so, we would go back to the house for about an hour and then out the door again! Enough about my hard life right?

I've got some more scrappy goodies that I managed to get done over the past week or so. Over at SSC the girls are coming up with some incredibly gorgeous projects to feast your eyes on for sure! Please come and stop by here and check out all of the yummy inspiration!! Remember, in each group we are giving away RAKS to the projects we choose that's most creative!! Also, for each project done for a challenge you are entered into the random drawing to become Designer Of The Month and receive a whole lot of scrappin' goodies from Miss Judy herself! That's cool right?!

I'm so glad I decided to be apart of the Simply Scrapping DT because they are the most incredibly talented & awesome girls around! Love it!! Nothing but creativity and NO DRAMA!!! It's so nice to not have to deal with daily DRAMA!! Thank you so much SSC!

This card below I made for Paper Scraps Challenge Week # 2! You had to make a tree made out of butterflies! How cool is that?! I went a little nuts on mine, but we all know I'm a little nuts so that's fine. My blade was really dull on my Silhouette so I had to basically cut everything 3 TIMES!!! This was the most time consuming card, but sooo worth it!! I put little Swarovski Crystals in the center of each butterfly and tied a bit of string in a bow to make it more whimsical. I'm not sure I'm liking the flourish button bird, but had no time to take it off. Hope you like it!

This first layout I did for June week #1 of Sketchy Saturdays challenge over at SSC that's up now. The girls are enjoying their HUGE lollipops Daddy gave them so I thought this would make a really cute layout. I used some older Making Memories paper along with a Fancy Pants transparency at the top. Of course, there is lots of stitching and color! I think it turned out really cute!

This one I had done for May week #5 Sketchy Saturdays at SSC too. These are some of the very first pictures I took with my brand new Nikon D3000 camera!! I sooooo love my new camera! It takes awesome pictures for sure! Don't the girls look so cute together? I think so! I stitched a circle and put different size die cut butterflies with brads around it. I chose to use two black & white photos so the colors wouldn't compete so much. I also wrapped some yellow and white ribbon around a Pink Paislee chipboard border for some added interest. I love the way it turned out and it's completely different then I had originally planned it to be. Love it!

Below is the very cute altered frame I made for Finley's Pre-School Teacher Mrs. Marti. I just die cut some flourishes and added some other little goodies and it was easy peasy! She loved it so much because the picture was of the whole class. I really enjoyed doing this for her.

Sometime within the next couple days I'll post some of the awesome pictures we took at the Baltimore Zoo. Got some really great shots of the animals. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far and I'll be back soon with more yumminess! TTFN!
