DCWV March Sketch
Here is my March Sketch Challenge layout of my adorable dog Ellie using the fabulous DCWV Limoncello Stack. Also used one sheet of DCWV Burlap to tie all three pics together and match the sketch. Hope you enjoy it.

K & Co. Scout Layout

Just like everything, time goes by and all the scrapbooking doesn't always get done so we get behind. No big deal. Just thought I would catch up on some wonderful documenting of things that have been good memories. I actually made two of these layouts for both of my boys but sharing just the one since they are practically the same.  Supplies used: K & Co. Scouting kit from Hobby Lobby which included all the papers and stickers but the layout idea is mine. I fussy cut the arrow paper outline border out, and pop dotted it up on the black cardstock, and added the 3D stickers from the kit.  The title was made on my Cricut Explore using the Doodletype cartridge.
Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Monday #91- Because of the "American Indian" feel of the arrows, and the black ground similar to the dark background in the pic.
Scrap Your Stash Challenge: #24
S-Scout Stickers, T-tan cardstock, E-Eagle Scout layout, N-Numbers, C--cut out border circling the layouts, I-Iconic event of becoming an Eagle, L-Letters

My Minds Eye Jubilee Tangerine Picture

 Loved this fabulous collection from My Minds Eye Jubliee Tangerine Traveler paper so had to scrap my favorite pic of my hubby and I on our trip!! Framed it too! Now we can look at this all the time! Had to keep embellishments to a minable since it is under glass and flattened! Oh well!!
 This was the first time I have welded letters and had them "Handwritten" with my new Cricut Explore.  I tried it with the Cricut Thick pen in silver, blue and then settled on copper.  Hoping to do this more and more because I love the look of the handwriting on everything! This is from the Anna Griffin Soiree Lettering Cartridge by the way.
PaperCrafting Challenge: Magazine Monday #88: My Traveler Paper reminded of the globe/world and instead of string as in the picture I did embroidery with thread and stitched after using my 
We R Memory Keeper Sew Easy Stitch piercer tool across the layout. A Maya Road Airplane clip was added with a Glue Dot.
I am adding this layout to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: No rules.

Darcies Shrink A Dink Charm Card

It says "Enjoy the little things" and has a butterfly and bird layered on top of the base. The white doily,  green, 2 pink ribbons and white lace are from my stash. I fussy cut around the white lace to have a scallop edge to the card.

My Minds Eye Jubilee Layout

I used the My Minds Eye collection called Jubilee Sherbet You. First I took the sheet of  "You" and added a layer of Imagine Crafts Creative Medium  over The Crafter's Companion Chicken Wire stencil to make my background seem more subtle. See below pic for a close up of that.  I matted each photo with "Enjoy" Sunshine paper, and then inked on the edge with Colorbox Chalk: Cat's Eye® Orchid Pastel. The Ribbon is from my stash and may be May Arts Ribbon.  Flowers are from Prima. Doily from the Dollar Tree.  I created this layout for the following Challenges:  (To access their websites, just hit their names and it will take you right to them).
