Protect...

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Good evening, bloggity bloggers!  I'm popping in with a card that shows off one of Dustin Pike's new images...Protect.  You can find the cutie patootie HERE!

I colored him up in Photoshop (since I can do it much faster that way), printed him out and layered him up on this Kaiser Craft paper.  The little sentiment is from PTI.  I had a sentiment in my head that said "Guard Your Nuts!" but I wasn't sure who I'd give it to.  LOL!

Don't you just love this little fella?  Get on over to the Doodle Dragon Studios store to buy your own!  Thanks so much for popping by today!  MWAH!!!

Current Challenge at CYDI?: Yellow

Good afternoon all!  I just wanted to pop in to let everyone know that the new challenge for Can You Digi It? is up running.  Use YELLOW!  Easy, right?  Not if yellow isn't your thing, it's not.

I made a layout of my daughter at the beach in CA and used several of the items in the Minty Sunshine line by CYDI?...there are some fun elements in this one!  This is as yellow as I could get.  LOL!

Pop on over and join us in the current challenge - there's 2 weeks left!  MWAH!!!

Oh, BEEHAVE!

I created this cute card using a new image from Doodle Dragon Studios.  I got a little tricky with it and took the image into photoshop and erased some of the image to create my own version...I didn't need a birthday card, so I got rid of the confetti, party hat and noise maker. I left out the lines I had to erase and printed it and then drew the lines back in with a pen.  Here is Bee-Have!


Thanks so much for popping in to check out my card!  MWAH!!!

Randoms from Scrap Art Studio

Hello all!  I know it's been ages since I've been here, but I wanted to make sure I came by to show you some of the latest and greatest items available at Scrap Art Studio.  We have the most amazing designers, so it makes "working" more like playing!  Pop over to the SAS Gallery to see more amazing digital and hybrid goodness or join us at the SAS Forum to chat, join the challenges, get special gifts and be the first to know about our fab sales!

First up is a layout using Angie Young's DARE to be the Real You.  This is my son and his buddies at his 16th birthday party...just being real!

Next up we have a page dedicated to my latest tattoo and the meaning behind it.  I used a collab called Live Life Fully by Beedeesign and t for me designs.  LOVE this kit!

This next one is an art journal page using Life Changes by GinyScrap.

Another kit from Angie Young called DARE to Let it Hurt.  Another art journal page that I love.  I think everyone can relate to this page.

Next up is a hybrid card I made.  I used all digital items from GreenEyedLady Designs' Spring Breeze.  I printed them out and turned them into this adorable card.


Last up is a fun layout I did of my son his step-dad playing football in the yard.  I had a front row seat and snapped pics as my son was running in for a touchdown.  Silly boys.  I used Boys & Noise by Courtney's Digiscrappin' for this one...it was perfecto!

I do hope you'll check out SAS soon!  Thanks so much for stopping by this afternoon!  MWAH!!!

Farewell to Pixie Dust Studio

Hello all and happy Saturday!  I'm back with my second project for the Forest Friends Release at Pixie Dust Studio.  Today I have merged three images for my card.  I  just couldn't choose!  I used Forest Bella, Forest Fella and Forest Finds.  I colored them up with my Copics and for the life of me I could not get the lightest pinks to show in my photos!  Grrr!  I ended up selecting them in Photoshop and recoloring...this was after I tried to adjust the colors.  It's a mess, but you get the idea.  LOL!

Check them out and shop away!  Thanks so much for stopping by this weekend!  MWAH!!!

Last week I started the Can You Digi It? Challenge #23.  I asked players to go Clean and Simple for their projects.  Check out the following inspiration board...you still have a week to play along!  Link up at the bottom of the CYDI? blog post!

I made my CAS layout based off of one of the sample photos on the inspiration board.  My daughter and her bestie on the tram at the Kansas City Zoo.  I used papers from Green Goddess Creations Scrumptious and Kreative Kraft as well as Pears by LilyPink Designs for my project.  I hope it inspires you to play along with us!  You could be the next big winner!  $10 for digi merch at the CYDI?

Pixie Dust Studio Hop - Day 1


Welcome to Day One of the Three Day Pixie Dust "Oh, Snap!" Blog Hop!

 If you arrived here from Kathy's blog, then you're in the right place! If not start at the beginning at the Pixie Dust Studio Blog. Participating Pixies will present a new project on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Each day Pixie will select a "Mystery Blog".

I used the image called Oh Snap...appropriately named, I must say!  The poor little fella has lost his arm.  At my house that means it's not fit to give away to anyone, so we have to eat it ourselves.  :O)  This will be the front page for my 2012 album of festivities.  I used papers from myself called Krafty Kristmas and I colored little gingie in Photoshop CS5.

Now it's time to visit Christine's lovely blog and see what she's made for you.  Thanks so much for stopping by today...don't forget to come back tomorrow!  MWAH!!!
