It is a very rainy day here in Northern California, so decided what a perfect day to do a challenge!

Lisa Johnson over at Poppy Paperie is hosting her first challenge.

The first challenge requires the use of: crystals, flower stamp, and yellow.

Here is my take on this challenge:

I used basic grey and october afternoon papers. My bling is in the center of the flowers! Enjoy!

Here is my latest layout. I used Cosmo Crickets "Nutmeg." This was a picture of my daughter and son at Burney Falls here in Northern Ca. just before he left to go back to Iraq for another 6 months. It was so hard to see him go back and he had such a hard time going back also! They have a close relationship and it is one of my favorite pictures of the two of them together.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend-what a beautiful sunny day it is today! LOVE IT!! Thanks so much for your kind words-I love what I do and hope it shows in my work!

I am going to submit my first Sketch challenge and color challenge at "Magistical Memories."

The color challenge is to use 3 colors (red, white, pink) and encourage to use hearts but not necessary, and to use the word "Love."
So here is my challenge layout! I was going to do a card, but had to use these pictures of my grandkids-as my title says, "What's not to love" I definately find Joy in them each and every day! They are so much fun-Whoever said, "Grandkids are more fun than your own" was not kidding-even though I love my kids oh so much also!

Here is the sketch challenge!

And this is my take on the sketch!

See you soon-Heidi

Welcome to my Blog!!

I have decided that I needed a blog of my own seperate from the store blog. If you don't know about my store-I own "Scrappin' Friends" in Redding, California. I am a new store, only 5 months old. Follow the link to see what is happening there! It is so exciting to see all the new papers coming out from CHA-can't wait to get my sticky fingers on them!

Have you seen the new papers from Cosmo Cricket? Well here are a couple of projects I did with them. The papers are soooo cute! Love them!!

In this layout I used the new "Joy Ride." What fun this was to design, I can just imagine the grandkids coming down the hill to the valley and asking, "Are We There Yet?" So in honor of them-this is what I came up with. I have asked my daughter for pictures of them riding in the car, hopefully she will take some soon so that I can add them to this page layout!
This is Cosmo Crickets "Garden Variety." I absolutely love this paper, it si so vibrant!

This card is the first of a set (I will post the rest of set when I get them completed). I used "Material Girl." This paper is oh-so cute also! I wish I had pictures of my mom sewing for me when I was little, they would have been perfect for a page layout! But, I wanted to show everyone, that you don't always have to use paper to make page layouts, they make cute cards also!

Thanks for visiting!
