I used leftovers from last year's spring designer paper. I layered a few scraps and punched the large 2 1/2" circle out of another scrap of paper. I stamped the turtle in StazOn and watercolored/glittered the image and added a few dots with my marker. Finally, I punched the image out with the extra large scallop circle and had a quick card for the neverending pile of thank yous that I need!

I sponged my vanilla background with pear pizzazz and spritzed it with log cabin smooch spritz. I cut out most of the paper and embellishments from the paper - it was too cute to leave out! I used the buttons to make a dot for the "i" in hike and added them to the corner of the picture on top. I loved the little trees, so I sponged them with chocolate chip ink and added glitter to the trees to make them even cuter!

I made this little journal using one of those composition notebooks you find at the beginning of school for 50 cents. I had some leftover Sweet Pea DSP that I just love and still enjoy using. I used the Rough Type letters and some tiny scraps of paper to make the title. I accidentally didn't leave enough room on the letter o to punch it out, so I decided to change them to flowers - it made it cuter anyway! For the image, I used the Great Friend set to make all the butterflies and then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on them before making a little trail of pearls for them to follow. Finally, I topped it all of with a dainty little Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon bow. Even the hubby liked it! That makes me happy!

Here is a page I made as a member of the design team at Sketches for All. I used some retired DSP from last year's mini. I loved these two pics of my parents with my nephew. I used the new Paisley Prints stamp set for the hearts and the new sizzix diecut to create the ric rac portions on the page. The brads are also retired - the buttons and flowers came from my DT friend, Stacy. Check out the Sketches for All website for some great contests coming soon! The sketch a thon is open to everyone and there are lots of prizes and RAKS to win!
