Color Challenge

This week over at the Epiphany Crafts blog we have a color challenge going on.  I love color challenges they always make me step away from the colors I generally choose and use colors that I normally wouldn't.  Here is the inspiration for the color challenge:

 
I used the Dear Lizzy Daydreamer collection which had all the colors from the inspiration piece.

 
Along with those adorable puffy heart stickers (which I am going to hoard lol) I added some coordinating hearts using the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Heart 25.


 
I used photos from our last trip to Savary Island.  This lovely deer came and said hi every day usually in the evening.  The kids loved seeing them come by.

 
My friend Jeannine is an amazing friend and I am so blessed to have her in my life!


She really does make me happy :)

 
The neighbours blow a conch every day at 5pm and you can go over for tea.  We joined them one day and had tea and cookies.


 
Building the giant sandcastle is always one of the best days, a lot of work but so worth it!

 
I spent the day with Sophia and Linden making beach crafts including reed bracelets. It was nice to have some girly time while I was there.


 
My oldest loves when we go out on the boat especially when Craig guns it.


 
This year a marine biologist came and gave a talk about Savary Island and all the amazing sea creatures.  It was pretty cool.


 
The younger kids loved collecting baby crabs and even made them a hotel/spa.


 
Family time is the best thing about Savary - getting away from electronics and just hanging out with family and friends.


 
Combing for beach glass is always on our list to to do while we are there and I was so luck to find this beauty.  My favorite color.

Dude!!

I love this photo of Mike and Linden taken at Gottacon.  The Crate Paper Boys Rule collection was perfect for this layout. 

 
I love all the embellishments that come with this collection, the vellum, the chipboard, the die cuts - all of it!

 
Star Wars is one of our favorite movies and I can't wait for the new one.

 
Thanks for stopping by.

Great Wolf Lodge

We had such a blast at Great Wolf Lodge, the pool and slides were awesome and Linden had a blast playing MagicQuest.

 
I used up some of my Crate Paper Pier collection and did some fun layering.
 

 
I also used some washi tape and tags for more layers.
 

 
We really did have a blast - it was so much fun.
 
Thanks for stopping by.

First Dance

Here's another layout I did with my Scrapbook Nerd April kit.  I asked my son to take a photo of him and his friends when they went to their first dance and I was so glad he did!!

 
I loved the speech bubbles in the Echo Park about All About a Boy collection and cut them out and added them.

 
I also love the script font in these American Crafts Thickers.

 
I wish I had more photos of me at this age hanging out with my friends and being goofy.  I love that he took this for me (even though he got into trouble lol).
 
Thanks for stopping by.

Scrapbook Nerd April Kit

I got to play with some fun stuff in this months Scrapbook Nerd kit, including the October Afternoon Daily Flash and the Echo Park All About A Boy collections.  First up I made a grid design layout using the 3x3 square cards from the Daily Flash Collection.

 
I then printed some photos out in the same size and mixed them in together.

 
I added some cute Dear Lizzy buttons to the centre of the cameras.

 
I love this fun and easy grid design and used it again for another layout.

Thanks for stopping by.

Treat Boxes

One of my favorite ways to use up old paper is to make some super easy and quick treat boxes for my son's classmates.  I used some older Dear Lizzy paper to whip up a few of these boxes that we can fill up with some treats and hand out for my son's friends.

 
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the boxes and then added some stickers and die cuts to finish them off.  Fill them with a few little treats and you have a cute little Easter treat.
