Recent cards & layouts

Lots of scrappy stuff happening this week.

The first thing being that Lisa at Create My Keepsake announced that she was closing her online store at the end of August. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this online community for the past 15 months and especially being a part of the DT there since January. I will miss CMK.

Thankfully though, members there have been posting about other online sites that they will sign up at, so I know that I will still be able to stay in contact with the online friends I've made at CMK.

I noticed that I had some cards that I made this summer saved on my computer that I never posted, so I thought I'd do that now.

I made this card for my wonderful friend, Val, for her birthday in July.

And this one for my twin brother's birthday last Friday. It's a little different from my usual style, but I was pretty happy with it.

And this one I made for my mom. I stamped on Bazzill cardstock with a Basic Grey stamp and Versamark ink and then heat embossed it.

The August DT challenge at MSS is a theme challenge: summer. Here's the layout I created for that:

Danielle at Scrap for a Cure posted a challenge to use Ali Edward's template to create a layout. Here's my version:

The layout I made of my kids documenting our incredible feat of delivering 473 phonebooks in one morning with great attitudes:

And a layout I made for a contest at A Million Memories where the challenge was to use a vintage photo and some lace trim. Normally, I don't have any vintage photos, but last week, I was cleaning up some photos on my computer and came across this one of my parents that I had used for a mini-book and layout I made for my mom three years ago. When I first saw this photo in my mom's wedding album, I thought it was such a gem! It's my mom and my dad dancing at their wedding. Here's the layout I made with it this week (which also doubled for Marcy's Wednesday Blog Challenge at MSS to cut out the pattern from a piece of patterned paper):

It's Morden's Corn & Apple Festival this weekend, so I don't anticipate scrapping very much this weekend, but I'm sure I'll be taking lots of photos!

Thanks for looking!
