You Are My Sunshine!

Last night I created a page for Olivia's scrapbook...the first page that I have created for her!!  Not necessarily going to be the first page in her album though.  The picture is just one of my favorites, she is a very happy baby and has been so smiley since day one...this picture just captures it!!  One of my favorite songs to sing to her is "You are my Sunshine" so I wanted to be sure to scrapbook this memory for her...this is what I came up with!  I also can't believe that it has been just about 3 months since this was taken!!  Where does the time go!?!?!

Gettin' Sketchy!

I was really excited to see that the challenge this week was a sketch, always nice to have a little something to get those creative juices flowing and even better I was able to implement my new obsession...paper flowers! I have been having so much fun making all sorts of different paper flowers, I will have to do a blog post on them.  I also was able to try out faux stitching, so cool and easy...inspired by Tresa Black.  I wanted to make a plain note card to send along with a little "just because" gift, so I used this challenge as the perfect opportunity.  I used some scraps that I had left over from the Cherry-O Level 2 paper pack, Tulip ribbon & brad, Chocolate cardstock & ink.  The photos aren't the greatest as I just took them...need some natural light!
