Sleepy Monster

I created this for a challenge over at Timeless Daydreams for our Creative Thursdays. We had to scrap lift someone who's had their layout featured as Dreamy layout of the day. I chose Anne Marie's layout Back to Cool layout. It was so fun to just scrap for me and no DT commitment. :) I used the June Noel Mignon kit for the layout, the blues aren't quite right here, but you get the idea. :)

See that cute lil monster? Yeah, how can you miss him? haha I created an SVG for him...and have cut him out 3 times now. Katelyn wants a larger one for her room, and I'm about ready to get that cut out for her. I cut him out around 4.5" wide... so if you cut it at that size or smaller, there's really no need for the black pupils... I just used a sharpie marker on the whites of the eyes. I created this in Make The Cut's newest version. Stellar. I love it so oooo ooo ooo much!
Cameron  loved his, then Samantha stole the one I was originally going to use on the layout above. Their all happy friends.
The monster SVG can be downloaded HERE.

And last week I made this one, it's cuts well... I rushed through it pretty quick when the new MTC version was released. I have to play with the text on a path better. I know how to do that in Paint Shop Pro.. just inside MTC is a little tricky.
If you'd like it, you can find the SVG HERE.
Enjoy and happy crafting!

Treasured Scrapbooking June 15th reveal

Ok.. so it's really the 16th, but we were being lazy around the house yesterday, and I didn't make it to the computer. Fun in the sun and all that jazz. :) This is my last month on the DT at Treasured Scrapbooking. Working for Erin over the last 3 months has been a blast. I did not turn in an application this time around. Being on three teams keeps me balls to the wall busy, and I need a little bit of down time with all the kids home during the Summer. A huge congrats to the new DT'ers and to Julie as DT Coordinator. :)

I can't brag on this girl enough.. I'll probably be making more layouts just from induction night alone.
I ran her program through my cuttlebug to give it some texture, circled her name, and used that as a base to house all my elements for this layout.
 Another fun thing on here was shelf lining I glimmer misted and framed with ric rak... and I loved the large flower from the center of the Jenni Bowlin paper, so I cut it out from the base of my layout to use as a large embellishment.

Three cards...

The last card I made for my cousin Amy... I have no clue if she likes those colors or not.. something I need to remedy.. it would be nice to know my extended families favorite colors. :)

Samantha has become more responsible with her possessions. She's taking better care to put things away, turn her lights off (I threatened to take her light bulb.. lol) etc. So, I thought a frame in her room would thrill her. I was right. :)

She told me right as I was taking this picture. "I really love it mama, and I'm smiling with the sun in my eyes!" ;) Too cute.
She chose the photo that is being displayed in it right now too. It was Halloween '09 when she was a Ninja Turtle, and she was pretending to beat up daddy. So cute!
The June kit was so much fun to work with. There are still some in the store, and the card kit went out yesterday too! I need to get dressed.. shhhhh. ;)

June Top Shelf Memories reveal

Seriously. Ten days since my last update here? *shakes head* Well, I have had a LOT of family crap on the table. It's sickening actually to think how skeletons from your closet can poke their bony heads into your reality and mess with your life. There's a reason these skeletons are in the past and not the present. Rant.over.

On to happier thoughts. The lovely Top Shelf Memories June Fancy Pants My Family kit. Hello? Taryn is only selling this beauty for $13!!! A STEAL! And on top of that, she charges flat rate shipping of ONLY $5! A kit shipped to you for $18. You just can NOT beat that anywhere. Plus, all past kits and add ons are on sale for 30% off. Now.. on to the layouts.

This layout is about a time where my mom and dad were together. Blissful and in love. A time I have no memory of. Kind of bittersweet and sad.

This little rocking chair was the children's favorite spot to hang out and play when we visited my FIL in Ky a few years back. This kit was perfect for capturing all things family.

My children love bubbles... we found these really cute bubble wands at Krogers for $1. My son likes to pick them up and pretend they are light sabers or swords. On this layout, I printed out two copies of my photo, one in color and one in black n white. Then I cut out the color photo of Cameron and popped it up with pop dots and adhered it on the black n white photo. I love the look.. so cool in person.

This layout is our Easter we spent with the family in Ky back in 2007... and also based off my sketch I created for Top Shelf Memories blog. You can check it out over here.

This silly dog is my husbands. Her name is Domino... one day we were looking all over for her. We found her in the bathroom perched up on the toilet like this. LOL Poor thing thought she would just chill there til we found her I guess. :)
Seriously. Check out the kits and the sell going on. The prices are phenomenal!

Lost layout reveal tutorial

I am no good at coming up with title names... one of the most important blogging tips out there is to make sure your title is good.. you know, cuz of search engines. ah well.. ;)

I can't believe the weekend is here already. The week has flown by.  I'm ready to settle down with Doug tonight and finish up the last three shows of Lost.  We power watched from start to finish in about three weeks time.  The best part of waiting until a show is about to end to start watching it, no waiting and no cliff hangers. :)
I think take out is in order tonight, while eating in bed!

I posted a tutorial on how to crop your layouts using Paint Shop Pro over on the Timeless Daydreams blog today.  Michele will be announcing the new contest coordinator soon! I can't wait to see who it will be.  Oh yes, and if you've never chatted on the forum, there are some really NEAT features. My favorite is being able to connect via facebook. Second is the shout box... and now you can comment on peoples status updates right on the front forum page. So super cool! Come check it out.

The Treasured Scrapbooking reveal was on the 1st.  I've been feeling so cruddy lately, I barely got it uploaded in time... which is why I am late to post here. ;)

Without further ado, my layouts for the June 1st of the month kit reveal.
*Snap Shot*
 My sketch of the month for Treasured Scrapbooking:

My layout based on the sketch
*Push Onward*
Treasured Scrapbooking is looking for NEW card designers and NEW Design Team members.  Since I only served three months (come the end of June) I'm eligible to apply again.  I'm thinking about it and don't have much time left to decide... not sure If I was really inspiring or not. lol Ugh, self doubt is the worst! *bites nails* ;) If you are a card designer, definitely put your application in, if you are a layout designer... move over toots, I may put my ap in too and don't want the competition! (ROFL.. totally kidding.. just ask my hubby, I'm a complete smartass like that.) :)

Have a super fab weekend!!
