"You've Got a Friend in Me!"

I love swapping and scrapping!  Here's a layout I made with some swapped elements from It's a Scrapbooking Swap Thing.  (Check them out here.)  The pictures are of my DS when he got new Woody from Toy Story pajamas.  He is wearing his hat he got at Vacation Bible School one year.  He cracks me up sometimes, being a typical boy!

I cut the title with Cricut's Birthday Bash cartridge, but I welded the letters with my Gypsy.  It took me a while to really get it down, but I finally figured it out!  Hope you like this layout!  I'm entering it in the May 1 challenge at About a Boy Challenge Blog.

Hula Teddy Card

Sorry I haven't been getting much scrappy time lately!  The end of my kids' school year has been a really busy time!  But I did manage to make a card for a friend, using Peachy Keen's photo inspiration.


As I was going through my stash the other day, I found some hibiscus patterned paper from Hobby Lobby, and knew I had to make a hula theme!

I cut the bear with Cricut's Teddy Bear Parade, and gave her a new Peachy Keen Face from their Teddy Bear Assortment, and the sentiment is from Peachy Keen's Thinking of you Bear set.  I put the bear on an action wobble--perfect when she dances with her ukelele!

I used some markers to accent the bear's clothes and added some pearls to her thought bubble and some crinkle ribbon from Stampin' Up!

Hope you like this card; I'll be entering it into the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge.  You can find it here.

CUTE Layout

Here's a layout I did for my baby girl's scrapbook.  She didn't seem to enjoy her bouncy seat much, but one day I got out my camera, and she was really "hamming it up!" lol.

I pulled out lots of embellishments for this page; I was excited when I found these chipboard letter stickers in my stash.  I had paid 25 cents for them!  Love a bargain!!

Anyway, I'm entering this layout in a new challenge blog called About a Girl Scrapbook Challenges. Their challenge this week is to introduce your little girl.  I put baby's name in the journaling.  If you are interested in this challenge, you can find it here.  This layout is also entered in a challenge at A Cherry on Top for their National Scrapbook Day Crop.

Teacher Gift

This week's challenge is to make something 3D with flowers, and Teacher Appreciation Week is this week.  I have to combine!! Lol.  My two school-age kids have about 5 teachers together, so I decided to make little treats and send all week.  Here's the first thing I came up with:

And, here's the back:

I cut the box with Cricut's Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 cartridge and the flowers with Flower Shoppe, and the little spade was cut with the Freshly Picked cartridge.  I used Peachy Keen's Snow Cutie Face Assortment, Joy's Life "Tag You're It; Set Two", and the "teacher" stamp from Papertrey Ink.  I embossed and spray misted the flower petals before shaping them with my bone folder.  Then tucked in a small circle shaped box of mints inside before closing the box up and tying purple gingham ribbon around the top.

Hope you like my little project!  And don't forget to check out Peachy Keen's current challenge.  You can find it here.
