Pattie's Creations Design Challenge #42--Photo Inspiration

My apologies for being a couple of days late on posting my creation for the newest challenge at Pattie's Creations!  The movers are coming to pack our house tomorrow, so things are a little crazy for us right now.  The newest challenge at Pattie's Creations is a photo inspiration challenge!  This is the photo we were asked to use for inspiration:
I used the popsicle trio image from Pattie's Creations to create my card:
Once I printed the image, I colored them with my Crayola colored pencils and then cut each one out individually.  After adhering a piece of patterned paper across the top of my card, I stamped my sentiment using yellow ink and then affixed the popsicles using pop dots.

We'd love to see what you can do with the photo inspiration!  Please remember that your creation MUST have a digital or stamped image to be eligible.  You have until Thursday, May 3, at 1PM CST to get your creation uploaded to the Pattie's Creations Design Challenge site.  

This will be my last challenge as a DT member at Pattie's Creations, as I will be stepping down.  I want to thank Pattie and Sandi for choosing me and providing me with such wonderful images to work with!  It's been an honor and a pleasure to be a member of your DT, and I had a great time!

Happy scrapping, everyone!

Pattie's Creations Design Challenge--Easter #41

As a school teacher, I thought this day would never come--SPRING BREAK!!!!!  What a glorious day it was when that final bell rang!  I'm a little bit late in posting my card for the newest challenge at Pattie's Creations, so my apologies.  The new theme is Easter, and you MUST use a digital or stamped image on your creation.  I chose Pattie's Easter basket with eggs image and created this card:

I decided to just go CAS with this card.  I printed the image three times, so I could use some other eggs and the bow as dimensional elements.  First, I colored everything in my image and cut it out.  Then, I decided which eggs I wanted to add dimension to and colored only those on my second printed image, cut them out, and adhered them to the respective eggs with pop dots.  Finally, I colored the bow on the third printed image, cut it out, and adhered it with pop dots as well.  I'm not sure where my sentiment sticker is from, but I found it in my stash.

We'd love to see your Easter creations!  Please remember that they MUST have a digital or stamped image somewhere on the creation.  You've got until Thursday, April 19, at 1:00 p.m. Central Standard Time to get your creation uploaded at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge.  Good luck, and happy scrapping!

Let's Scrap sketch layout 3-28-12

Well, my normal Sunday routine of watching NASCAR is COMPLETELY shot today due to the contract dispute between Tribune Broadcasting and DirecTV!  Our FOX affiliate in San Diego is affected by the dispute, so we won't be watching the NASCAR race today. :-(  For those of you that ARE able to watch the race, I hope you enjoy it!

Here's my entry for Let's Scrap's latest sketch challenge:
I used Little Yellow Bicycle's Fresh Print Clothesline collection and embellishments for everything on my layout, except for the title.  For that, I used some fabric Thickers I found in my stash.  

These are some of my favorite pictures from my second pregnancy!  My husband was deployed to Iraq at the time, and I wanted him to have some nice pictures of me late in my pregnancy so he could still feel as if he were part of everything.  I'll be uploading my layout to the Let's Scrap gallery soon!

I hope everyone has a great scrappy day!  Be sure to check back later this week for my latest creation for the new challenge at Pattie's Creations!  Happy scrapping!
