Weekend of Work

For your viewing pleasure I have some fun scrapbooking layouts, notebooks, and cards! This was a productive weekend amongst the tragedy that occurred here Friday that I will refer to as "The Incident" as I was getting ready to head to my 2 day crop. I had put all of my glimmer mist, embossing powder, distress powders,shimmerz paints, mod podge, glossy accent, chalks and glue in my Caboodle to carry. I had put it by the front door, went in my room to change, then pack my carry all...came around the corner to find this...which is only what they dumped here, the rest was up directly into the trash can..most of the mist and chalk were ok,and my glossy accent had 1/4 left, both my crackle paints survived as well as one of my mod podges everything else went to the scrappy graveyard....moment of silence.....My niece and Edward, my youngest were both found at the scene of "The Incident" though neither fessed up, the paint and powder from Ava's head to toe was a clear indicator who had the most fun :/
Thanks to the ears and eyes of some super great people I have made it though "The Incident" with only about 3 straight hours of sobbing hysterically followed by another 10 on and off and am working on a plan to rebuild my supply one piece at a time!

I did manage to however get some things accomplished at my crop and yesterday, so with out further ado..

I used Sketch My World April 1st Sketch  to guide my creation.
I incorporated Paper Secrets Challenge #3 for use of Crimson, Butter cream,and Green Apple.
I had so much fun with my Cry Cry Baby layout for Candy Shoppe Designs U Crack Me Up Challenge to scrap some funny/embarrassing moment I had to do another one!

"But You Can Pick Your Brothers...."
Edward was only about a month old and we were sitting on the couch and I was trying to "capture" some sweet brotherly love moments. As I am looking through the camera I realize Edward has some boogies and say it out loud...Noah being the loving brother he is, decided to help him out with his booger situation...His face is priceless...
"It is said "You can Pick your friends,
and you can pick your nose.
But you can't pick your friends nose....
You can pick your brothers nose!"
Close up of journaling (my handwriting sucks yes, I know, but it is mine...)
Hand Made flowers I followed ( Such a pretty mess tutorial)

Next up is my very first Card Challenge! I was a little nervous as it is such a smaller space to work with but I think I did pretty good here! I follwed 2 Sketches 4 you Kazan's Sketch #50 I moved the ribbon to the left simply because I couldn't fit my words!! I hope you like it! I had fun with it and plan on doing their bonus challenge so stay tuned!

SO I decided to try another card challenge over at Sketch and Stash Challenge and what I loved was you have to use something in your stash that you never have...hum that will be hard (yeah right) Here is my take on their sketch...I made Best Friends Card...using both the center sticker and lower sticker from an unopened pack from a yard sale grab bag from last August.

That is all for now, I am still working on some other stuff so keep checking in to see what I come up with!!!
