Oh Baby

I scrapped my boys' baby pictures years ago when they were still babies, but I have pictures of myself! Actually this is the last one of me as a baby, I have a few toddler then it'll be a bunch in the 70's as a kid with my brother & sister. Anyway, this week's challenge is to scrap a baby picture(s) preferably of yourself if you have them but other kiddos will work just fine.
My Creation:

The Details (I left the butterfly attached to the page it come on but cut it out half way, glued a piece of patterned paper behind it, and used Liquid Glass from CTMH to make it really pop off the page)
Products Used:Printed Paper-My Minds Eye Bella Bella; "sweet baby"-Making Memories pitterpatter; ribbon-misc; bling-iRock

Stuck on you

This week's challenge is to use up some of those printed stickers you have piled up here & there! I know, craziness right? I personally just don't use that many stickers any more, I'd much prefer to make my own with my handy dandy Cricut E... but I'm too cheap, errr thrify to throw them out.
Here's my Creation:
Products used: stickers & alpha-Making Memories 5th Avenue; Diamond Glaze; Ink-CTMH; ribbon-misc

Flowers Flowers everywhere

my new pen & pencil holder is supposed to look like two flowers, one on top of the other... I'm not sure I actually accomplished the look, but I like it
The top view:
This challenge is to make flowers out of floral paper, that's right you can cut some flowers out on your die cut machine, stack em up & drive a brad thru the middle... or get kind of crazy creative like I did!

How did I make this silly thing... you see I design developments for a civil engineer & our rolls of paper come in 36" rolls, these are called cores. I simply used my husband's chop saw and cut them to the length I wanted, dressed them up, added a little ink to the edges, then glued the whole mess together in the shape I wanted... actually Ron suggested it & I actually liked his suggestion.

Prints Prints Prints

This week's challenge is to use 3 very different prints on a creation!

Here's what I came up with:
I would have taken pictures of the products used or listed them for you on this one, but it was all scraps. This is my favorite Thank You stamp, it's made by Hippo Heart of San Mateo, CA; I have no idea how long I've had it.
