My Girls

I have decided to do one of my "road trips" with Lauren!! We will be gone a couple of days, but I wanted to leave you with two new layouts before I left town.....

It is a new week and that means a new challenge at Practical Scrappers!! This week we are challenging you to use flowers on your card/layout/project!! Seriously... this one could not be any easier... especially this time of year!!!


A few weeks ago my niece got married in a beautiful park and we took advantage of having everyone dressed up to take some of our family pictures!! This is me with my 3 girls!! The picture was taken with my cell phone so the color is not that great... but I have plenty of color around it!! (Some of my other family members took this picture on their cameras so maybe one day I can get a better copy and replace this one!!!)

 Most of the flowers are Prima, but I did make the big orange one thanks to my friend Kim (Memories in Thyme) who posted a tutorial on her new challenge blog - Sketches in Thyme!! Once I saw the video, I wanted to give it a try and loved it!! You can find it by clicking HERE!! I chalked the petals and then sprayed them with some glimmer mist I made myself!!

The rest of the supplies are:
Papers - DCWV Mariposa Stack
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Title - EK Success stickers
Stamps - Kelly Panacci

Now be sure to check out the Practical Scrappers blog daily for new design team inspiration and link up your own project!!

This second LO was inspired by the sketch this week over at Sketches in Thyme. (The same one I mentioned above with the flower tutorial!)  If you have not seen this new challenge blog, please stop over and check it out!! Better yet, become a follower and play along!! Here is the sketch for this week....

This is my week off from the Sketches in Thyme design team, but I still couldn't help playing along!! These are pictures of Lauren at the zoo 2 summers ago!! They had this area where the kids could splash in the water and climb on the giant frogs! Lauren loved doing this everytime we went!! (sorry for the bad picture... the lighting is bad and I was out of time to get it done before my road trip!!) The words aren't showing up too well but it says... too cute for words!!

Supplies used on this LO:
Paper - We R Memory Keepers (Madame Royale)
Flowers - Prima and Recollections
Velvet Brads - Making Memories
Journal Tag - K & Company

Thank you for stopping by!! I will be sure to catch up with all the fun blog postings when I return!! Have a fabulous week and thank your for always leaving such kind comments!!
