                  Welcome To Our Design Team Challenge.
Our challenge for this week was to complete a lay out from this sketch. Below is a pic of the sketch we went by.
                                                                                                                              Well I have never used a sketch before, sooo I hope it's close to correct.
 My youngest daughter and her BFF at a school dance.
I used coordinating paper from -the basics by paper studio- all letters and flowers were cut from Cricut Classic Font Cartridge. Of coarse we added pink glitter and green jewels.
As pretty as this Lay Out turned out to be...The Best part of this layout for me is ...My daughter and I done it together .

Design Team Challenge

                               Welcome to the Kari's Purplies Design Team Challenge.  Kari Had given us the challenge to alter a notebook and add the flower to it from the last Design Team Challenge.
                                 I had alot of fun with this.  So here's the flower that my notebook had to be designed aound....
And here's what I started with...just a plain compositional notebook that I picked up for 14 cents at wal-mart at the begininng of the school year and 1 piece of glittered paper. 
I cut the paper to fit the front of the notebook and glued it in place.

I cut the leaves and the " inspire"  sentiment from the cricut cartridge Home accents.  THe leaves are cut at 2 inches and the "inspire" sentiment at 1 1/2 inches.
I added a little bling and of coarse it wouldn't be my project if it didn't have glitter on it ! lol...I outlined all the leaves and the sentiment with Glitter.
I hope you like my altered notebook... please leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Thanks for stooping by and have a Blessed Day.

Here are my DT sisters please stop by and show them soome love.

Now for my project for the day. I made a scrapbook layout. I 'm thinking that if I keep making layout pages for the blog hops I'm in I will get caught up on my kids scrapbooks...LOL. It's a good idea but not sure it's working.
So here it is...

I used the pooh and friends to cut the tree and grass. Everyday dress up dolls for the fish.I added a little glitter to the fish, because fish shine and mainly because I LOVE GLITTER  :)
 I like to do journaling, So I always leave room on my pages to do that. I try to leave room for the kids to add their memory about the pic as well and I know I have more pics from this trip but couldn't find them (grrr I hate when I do that) so I left room for them to.I hope you like my project for this hop.

Purplies Design Team Challenge

                Welcome to Our Design Team Challenge
Kari had given us the challenge of making a flower. As you travel through the Purplies Design Team Blogs you are going to see some amazing flowers and the recipes to make them. I hope your as excited as I am, cause I love love love making flowers :)
     My favorite flowers are the ones that look beautiful but are easy peasy to make LOL... which the brings you to mine (hehehe)
This flower is sooo easy to make.
Flower Shoppe Cartridge
2 <sunflower> @ 3 inches
1 <sunflower > @ 2 1/2 inches
1 <scallope> @ 2 inches
glitter glue and 4 pearl picks
ink pads ( I used red,white and ditressing brown)

               Before you start to assemble your flower now is the time to use your ink pads. I used the Tim Holtz Distressing Ink -vintage photo first on the edges of all the petals, then went over it in red. I took a white ink pad and just dabbed all the cuts.just to break up all that pink. now your ready to assemble your flower...
                Stack flower petals on top of each other ( biggest petal on bottom) stagger the petals , roll the scallope cut up, be sure to glue it as you go or it will loosen up and come unraveled ( I know from experience )
after the scallope is completely rolled up, glue it to the center of the sunflower petals. I rolled the petals of the sunflower around the handle of a small paint brush to give them a little curve.
                I added the pearle picks to the center beneath the scalloped flower. Then I added glitter glue to the edges of all the petals so the would catch light ( I love glitter)  and show a little diminsion.  There you have an easy flower. I hope you like it.
             Thank you for stopping by my Blog today . Be sure to stop by my DT sister's Blogs and see their beautiful flowers as well.
                                Have A Blessed Day

I made a scrapbook layout for my project today. This layout is of my youngest daughter Mckenzie's concert. She recently just awarded 2 Gold medals for her performaces . Yes, I think she's awesome !! She is a very talented young lady.
My Favorite quote is by Hans Christain Anderson " Where words fail, Music speaks."  and it's so true, isn't it?

I Used the Quarter Note cartridge to make this layout. I highlighted Mckenzie by cutting and oval in vellum, placed over her pic .I painted glitter on the vellum (not real happy with that effect) because the vellum looked to plain. I will def try another effect instead of the glitter next time :)

I always leave the layouts I do for Mckenzie's scrapbook a little plain because she likes to add names/ dates and other info to her book.
Well there it is, I hope you like it. Oh by the way I LOVE this cart. if your child is in band or plays any instrumement at all I do recommended it. All 3 of my kids play something so my cart will gets used alot LOL. Be Blessed.

This is my first Design Team Project for Kari’s Junior Purplies and you can find the complete Design Team projects at . Her instructions were simple – we were to do a Love project and think out of the box and yes it can be anything paper related or home decor just don't do a card...along with trying to be different!..
This is my project Love project thinking outside of the box
...It's a mini made out of an altiod tin. I made it for my youngest daughter.

I sanded the tin a little just so the surface wouldn't be so slick.

I measured my paper, glued it to the tin, then added lace and ribbon. Inside the top lid I glued paper and wrote how proud I am of her.

This is the completed project.
  I hope you enjoyed my Junior Purplies DT project. I hope you'll visit Rachelle,Lisa and Andrea and see the awesome projects they created...Thanks for stopping .
