Late night scrapping!

Wow!  We had so much fun today at stamp club.  If you live near Somerset, Kentucky and ever want to have a squealing good time - literally - you should come join us sometime!  We had lots of fun today making the layout from yesterday and the gate fold card as well as this darling little Easter treat.  It's just a punch pal attached to a little cello bag of SweetTarts jelly beans.
Here's what you need:
2 scallop circles (2 3/8") - white (One for the front, one to cover the back of the bag)
2 wide oval - white
2 large oval - blushing bride
2   1/2" circles - white
2 rhinestones
1 tiny pearl
****Sponge all white pieces with blushing Bride ink.
Add a few whiskers with Basic Black Stampin' Write marker

After watching Soul Surfer last night - a superb movie choice - I decided to stay up and scrap.  Here's a layout I made using a few more pieces from the Lucky Girl Crafts kit.  I liked the picture of my daughter taking a break at dance practice in her homemade shirt.  I used the 3rd sketch from Kelly Purkey's sketchbook class and the title "Sweet" to go along with ScrapFIT's sponsor - Sweet Peach Crop Shop.  I liked it enough, I think I even made all the journaling go along with the title!
Sketches in Thyme is having a DT call!  Here is the layout they are using for applicants if you are interested.  You have until April 22 to submit your new layout based on this sketch.  Here's my layout based on the sketch.
  I have almost used up this Lucky Crafts kit that I won.  This was the Making Memories background page.  I used the leftover scraps for the layers.  I found that the Day of Gratitude medallion stamp is nearly identical to the medallions on this paper, so I stamped it in Basic Black and distressed it with Tim Holz Natural Linen.  I finished off the last of my black rhinestones with a flourish underneath and topped it off with a red flower and a vanilla vintage adornment.
Finally....I finally finished this layout that I started at the CK Convention.  This is why I try to finish ALL of the layouts before I leave!  I just now got around to finishing it up.
Here is a closeup of the left page - a little yellow pom pom trim.  I really like the October Afternoon paper that they included - I love the mixture of vintage with bright colors!
And the rest of the stitching and flower rolling.....time consuming but cute!  Now......anyone have a solution for fitting these fat flowers into your scrapbooks?  I'm open to some ideas - this is a little thicker than my usual page.  
Ta ta for now!
