Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


Getting closer, but still over a month away! Yes, Easter is later this year than it normally is, so here is a layout to showcase a super cute digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique.

If you’ve noticed a couple extra blinkies showing up in the right side bar, it’s because I’m LUCKY to be a Guest Designer for The Stamping Boutique this month!!! Thank you to Tracey for having me and offering such great digital stamps to show off!

The Stamping Boutique is having a bi-weekly challenge with the first kicking off last week. You still have time to enter as the challenge closes on Sunday, so get to it!

The challenge: use Texture, Sparkle and Buttons!

The Texture on the page is the embossed paper, punched flowers and buttons. The Sparkle is also the paper as it’s coated all over with shimmer! The Buttons are the centers of the flowers. Thanks for stopping by today!

Isn’t she super cute? I’ve been wanting to color her for quite some time now and FINALLY found the right card for her!

It is challenge time again at the Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge Blog. A new challenge starts today, Tuesday and ends on the following Monday, March 14th.

This week’s challenge is to create a project using ribbon and lace and Michelle’s images. I know you can do it!

I used a beautiful lace and 2 different ribbons on this card, love those greens and browns!
