What a crazy month this has been! This month, we were all given various Crate Papers from A PILE OF SCRAP! - some cute lines with really great rub-ons and die cuts that really add to your creations. I was in a bit of a time crunch and only got started 2 days before the deadline but did manage to complete 4 projects (with one more almost done!).
Some of the goodies given to me included:

We had a little staff meeting/going away party/staff crop at work on Friday night so I quickly printed off some Canada Day pictures to work with. The only problem was that as I was holding this beautiful little 7 month old, he managed to grab a hold of my wine glass and spill it....getting a little bit on each picture....but it worked out okay as I managed to create some embellishment clusters to cover it up!
The first layout I did is my new fave....can you tell where the wine got on the picture?!
The squirrel is part of the glitter die cuts, how cute is he?!
And the next layout also had some wine spillage...any guesses where?
The owl, the journaling tag, and the "hoo's the little cutie" are also from the die cuts....I don't think I have ever bought die cuts before but they sure can add to a page! The chipboard heart was coloured with my new obsession (Smooch ink) and then stamped, and the Prima flower was inked and glimmer misted....after I took out the middle of it because I wasn't crazy about it.

Next up were two birthday cards for a little birthday party (for my dayhome kiddies) we went to yesterday. The kids had a great time and it was actually quite a relaxing birthday party! The cards were made from the rubons and snippets of paper and even a bit of the packaging from the rubons - can you tell where I used that?!

And that is my reveal - hope you enjoyed it! Make sure you check out Candace's unique "Beach Days" layout, Cheryl's super-cute "Monsters Under the Bed" layout, Vicki's adorable "1 Cute Shirt" layout, Valerie's beautiful flower box, and Jen's "Just Ducky" layout!!

Can't wait to see what this month brings us.... will be back later tonight with the Sketch of the Week!


  1. love the layouts and cards...and no, I can't tell where the wine spilled. i have looked and looked. email me and tell me, pretty please.

  2. You have TOTALLY inspired me with the mushroom die cut page. LOVE it. I have that same shape and have yet to use it. Lovely work.
