May Challenge at Everything Scrappin

As Heather is busy buying new items for the store, and uploading new goodies, I took a stroll through my box of scraps created over the past year working on the DT for EverythingScrappn. My card is a mix of my favorite paper lines that I worked with this past year. Webster's Pages "Nature's Storybook" for the background, Basic Grey's "Nook and Pantry" and Graphic 45's "Domestic Goddess" for the flowers, and I used the Pink Paislee Christmas line for the base of the card. So here is your inspiration for this months challenge...... Mix your manufactures! You need to use at least 3 paper lines from different companies, you can use them for layering and building a LO or for making embellishments. This months winner will receive a $10 gift cert to the ES store. Be sure to check out the ES blog for all the details.

ES Inspiration Day

Hi everyone :) Its the 14th which means crafty goodness from EverythingScrappn
This month while we "patiently"  :) wait for all the new product to come in... we have searched through our stashes to find some yummy "vintage" goodness to inspire you. I will list the papers still available in the ES store with links

the black patterned base paper is the reverse side of Pink Paislee's Autumn Blossom from the Amber Road range
And a fun Hambly Overlay Grandma's Wallpaper

Just ignore the still wet stickles...had to get pics while the sun was still out ;) 
The spiral flower is cut from Pink Paislee's Cupcake Cutie

If you are going to be crazy enough to put rubons on a doily....Basic Grey's rubons rock! 
I used Frozen lake glimmermist on the doily and Spring Rain on the backside of the flower

The smaller flowers are Pink Paislee's Sweet Cakes with some Cherry limeade mist on the backside 
and another one of those awesome BG rubons

a sweet son and scrappy news

Okay, first things first...... 

the summer DT for Scrapbook Heaven was announced today  ...  And guess who made it???

all of the new DT:
MICHELLE - lifemadecreations-MichelleN
APRIL - michellehum-April
TERESA - teresamatz

congrats ladies :)

okay, now for a LO
this one was for a challenge at Scrapbook Heaven, using a touch of glitter. My very sweet Benny made these stars and wanted me to scrapbook with them, so TA-DA

there is just a small touch of glitter, I didn't want to outshine those awesome stars :) 
I gave the robot a heart of gold, just like Ben's

Stuck?! sketches

This is my take on the May 1st sketch for Stuck?! Sketches 
I also included Jules' May challenge over at Scrapbook Heaven 

so I had to use a title that only makes sense to my family "Tiger Moose" 
This is an inside thing with my Dad and his grandkids. He calls them tiger mooses, and they always salute him with Moose ears.

the flower is made of used drier sheets that have been colored with glimmer mist. after the circles are cut out I roll them in a ball and rub around them in the palm of my hand, this gives the circles a felted look (it also shrinks them, so make the circles bigger then you want them at the end)
