Spring Chick, Mystery Chick, Mojo Chick

I love a good challenge or swap - and often try to combine.  Our local scrapbooker's group meets month and swaps cards with a specific "mystery item" - this month's being white cupcake liners.  What a great feeling when that inspiration clicks!  So today I am sharing a card inspired by Mojo Monday's Sketch Challenge #498 - using my cupcake paper liners.  My papers are watercolored using Ken Oliver's Color Burst - as is my Spring Chick.

Life's Too Short

Today I'm sharing a fairly simple card - a digital sentiment, three copies of a digital image, and some digital background. You can print all this on one page...then fussy cut and layer the image. 
Everything I used today is from We Are 3 - Romantic Garden digital paper collection, Early Bird digital sentiment collection, and What's Up Birdie.

Get Back to Basics

Today I'm sharing a two-pay layout using the amazing Back to Basics from We Are 3.  It's important to me to have unity throughout my scrapbooks.  I started the scrapbook using Spongebob and Patrick (Below Link).  When I saw Back to Basics, many of the papers are a perfect fit and I cannot wait to continue combining the collections.

We Are 3 Papers

I love watercolor digital papers from We Are 3 - kind of my go-to papers for challenges.  This card was inspired by the current sketch challenge at The Outlawz and Miss Daisy Stamps March Challenge - Sentiment Only - using a free sentiment from Miss Daisy - Friends in Your Heart

The Early Bird gets the Coffee

Thanks for join me for another fabulous release from We Are 3 here on my blog!  Today's brand-new inspiration is the digital paper collection Bird's View and a collection of sentiments - Early Bird.  With these collections, I made a coffee gift card holder.

Spring Brilliance St. Patrick's Day Greetings

How is your day going?  Have you finished your St.Patrick's Day Cards yet?  If not....the Spring Brilliance digital papers from We Are 3 provide the perfect background...I've used Shredded Grass for my background.  That - along with some Table Scraps - made for a quick card.

Romantic Garden - Toasty Warm

How is your week going?  Are you creating beautiful things this week?  My allergies have kicked my rear the past few weeks - and I've considered myself lucky if I can drag myself to my craft table each day to make anything.  I enjoy Splitcoast Stampers Featured Stamper on Sundays - having been featured in the past, I always try to support the week's Featured Stamper.  This week, I found a card on her site that was quick and easy...so I dug into my Table Scraps and made this very simple sympathy card.

Scrapbook Layout

I'm grateful to have you visit my blog today.  Today's layout shows you just about what I love doing most - scrapbooking my grandchildren's activities.  Unfortunately, I cannot post photos of my grandsons so you can see just how cute they are.

Wild Child

How is the beginning of your week going?  Hope this finds you having a great day.  What's on your craft table?  How about joining the March 123 Challenge?  The challenge has three requirements:  The color BROWN, the word FUN, and a BORDER.  Their design team brings you completely new inspiration.  Need some time?  You have until the 30th to join.

Remember the fun you used to have playing in the park?  My grandson loves to climb - This layout will feature him climbing some playground equipment (sorry, not allowed to post layouts with photos of the kids).  You can see I included a FUN banner, BROWN highlights with my BORDERS.

St. Patrick's Day

How is your weekend going?  Are you creating anything beautiful this weekend?  I'm playing with Table Scraps and made this St. Patrick's Day card.

Pretty Birdie - Spring Brilliance

Good Morning!  I here today with a card that's a little extra special!  I love the new Pretty Birdie as she's just the perfect chick with a "spring" in her step.  Okay, the "spring" is actually beneath her - so this card has lots of movement.  Papers chosen for this card are also a new release for We Are 3 - Spring Brilliance.

Winter Wonderland CAS

Have you been busy at your craft table?  Today's card is for the Clean and Simple challenge at The Outlawz - quick and easy to do!  Two pieces of cardstock and a pre-made Christmas embellishment.  I didn't even have to shop for the embellishment - it was a gift from my daughter-in-law.  How much easier can you get?
