Saturday with Unscripted Sketches and CSI

 Hope you are having a fabulous weekend.  I'm off for a change (usually work on Sundays) but we are going (on Friday) to Corpus for my daughter's bff's wedding.  Can't wait!  Taking my son and his girlfriend with us so we should have a fabulous time.  Anytime I get to go to the beach, sit in the sun, run on the beach, is my FAVORITE time!    Today I have a card and a couple of layouts for  you.  First up is a card for Unscripted Sketches.

Next up is this weeks challenge over at CSI.  You will need to check out the blog for the details but I had such fun with this one.  I scrapped our trip to Jamaica.  Dang did we have a ball! The Jamaican pictured was trying to talk me into keeping Brandy - he adored her - especially after we had finished snorkeling and were on the way back and the music was playing the bar was open and she hopped up on the deck and started dancing and before you know it the party started~!

 Next up is a page I created for Core'dinations where we were doing a little Design Team challenge to create a mono-chromatic page.  The little adorable subject is Gavin.  Used tons of Core'dinations on this - lots of embossing folders and sanding!

Thanks for stopping by!

Core'dinations and Couture Creations Blog Hop

What could be more fun than a blog hop between these two awesome companies.  This week will be full of fun inspiration from our Design Teams using our products together!.  I have made a card with one of the embossing folders and then used some Black Magic Core'dination's cardstock.  After embossing it with one of the Couture Creations embossing folders, I sanded it to let the underlying color come through, added some May Arts ribbon and a David Tutera Tag to the front!

Then I also made this layout.  On this layout of my beautiful granddaughter I started with some of the Core'dination's dots paper which I lightly sanded.  Then I embossed the peach sheet and the pink strip with two different embossing folders from Couture Creations which I again using my Sand It and my Dust Buddy I sanded and attached to my page.  Then I used the Couture Creations die cut to cut my lacy circles.  Topped it off with May Arts ribbon to make my banner.

 From here hop on over to Mary Pats blog and check out what she had in store for you!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to go to both the Core'dination's blog as well as the Couture Creations blog to find more inspiration.  This is going on all week long so please join us every day this week for more Design Team inspiration.

 Hope you are planning a wonderful weekend - this is my last day off - back to work tomorrow for two then off two then back for one more - than off to Corpus for my daughter's bff's wedding.  Can't wait to see the girls again!  Today I have a card for you from Unscripted Sketches.  Please check out the rest of the Design Team's inspiration and play along with us this week!
Then next up is this weeks challenge over at CSI.  Loved the colors this week and scrapped this picture I took of 7 mile beach I took while we were in the Grand Caymens on our cruise.

Then here's another page I did this week. This is my sister's bff's granddaughter who I agreed to do some scrapping for. Such a cutie!  Used up the last of my Noel kit with this one.

Tuesday posting

Just a couple of pages I did today while I was trying to chill and re-group to go back to work for one more day.  Worked Sunday and Monday and floated Sunday and was charge on Monday so ran my tail off.  Charge again tomorrow - don't know how my name keeps coming up on top of the list! 
First page I did with some Core'dination's basic cardstock - which I sanded to give it a little rustic look and then misted.  Papers are from a Noel kit and a couple of paper packs I have on hand.  This is little Gavin who is just adorably cute!

Then for this page I just wandered through my stash and found these My Mind's Eye Alphabet papers and scrapped this cute picture of Gavin smiling at himself in the mirror his Mom put over his car seat - looks like he's making a new friend!
Thanks for stopping by!

Saturday with Unscripted Sketches and CSI

 Happy Saturday - spent Tuesday through Friday at my oldest daughter's, Kim Moreno, who some of you scrappy people may be familiar with.  She has FIVE kiddos - mostly teens and wanted some help to deep clean her house.  OMG - what a project.  The goodwill store ended up with around 10 HUGE boxes of clothes and toys.  The trash cans are full in Eastland!  And her washer and dryer ran non-stop from the time I got there until I left unless I was asleep.  UNREAL what kids can stuff under a bed!  They probably didn't quite count on Mama who is an ICU nurse and the -oh Dad helped us clean out under there the other day didn't count for much - we moved every piece of furniture - washed every stuffed animal, piece of bedding, rug, curtain, etc.  BUT it looks great and by the time I left Kim was down to having to do a goodwill giveaway from her closet and just a couple more things.  Had to come home and rest to gear up for a week of work.  Headed back tomorrow and of course I come home to cleaning up and laundry for the boys!
Here's my card for Unscripted Sketches this week.

Then here's my layout for the double Case File together with sketch by Emma for this week's CSI challenge.  This is a photo taken soon after we got on the cruise.  We were all just about to pop with excitement!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend.  If I can I'm going to get out and run this morning before we make our weekly grocery trip.

CSI, Unscripted Sketches and a little more

 Happy Saturday - hope you enjoyed the weeklong blog hop over at Core'dinations - there were lots of prizes and loads of inspiration! Well I'm fell pretty productive - got alot of scrapping done this week and managed to clean out the garage today.  We have had boxes packed for months but they had somehow (thinking a little help from my son) spread and moved around and made a big mess of the garage.  So I restacked them and cleaned up and it looks human again.
 Today I'll start with my page for CSI.  Loved the palette and if you will go over to CSI you can see the entire Case file -so much inspiration on this team it's amazing.    I used this beautiful photo of my daughter's Bffs

 Next up is my card for Unscripted Sketches this week.  Love using SRM stickers - they made a card come together to well!!!

Then here's a couple of more layouts using my most recent Noel Kit - have really used these up recently.  The first is my sister's bff's g-baby and the second is little Gavin who is my daughter's bff's baby and who she keeps most of the time.

Thanks for stopping by!

Saturday with Unscripted Sketches and CSI

 Ok WOW I'm back from my cruise and just about rested up!  What a fabulous time we had - everything I expected and more.  Had so much fun and am totally hooked on snorkeling!  We went to Jamaica, Grand Caymens and Cozamel. Got a few pictures here to show off - more on my FB page.
But today I have my card for you for Unscripted Sketches.  Used a Nina Bracket stamp on this one.

 The up for CSI this week we had this awesome palette.  I  had this adorable picture of my sister's bff's granddaughter that was perfect. 

The for a few pictures from our trip.  Here we are on the snorkeling excursion in Jamaica - the boy wanted to take Brandy home with him - especially when she got up and started dancing and got the entire ship partying.

 Then this was dress up night and this was our favorite bartender - we called him Vodka.  He had a long Russian name so we just nicknamed him. Another one who wanted to take Brandy home
Got this one nice picture of me with the girls - the others they had to act up in!


Then we took this picture in Grand Caymens.

And this was the first day - just got on the ship - had lunch and were waiting to go to our rooms for the first time.

Thanks for stopping by - love to hear from you.
