Sketches in Thyme New Open Challenge!!

Hello all!  I'm sneaking onto team B this week because last week I was soooo busy I didn't have time to do anything!  It's open challenge time over at Sketches in Thyme!  That means that you can use ANY sketch for your project and upload it to enter in to win the grandprize of a $15 to freehand scraps!  So make sure you link up your layouts here and check out our awesome sponsor here!

For my layout above I used my Mr. Huey's white to mist the cardstock.  That stuff is amazing, I need to find some more of it!  The picture of the brat is from her birthday party this past weekend, her bangs are all in her face, but her look is serious, I love it!  For this one I created my own sketch !
So make sure you head on over to Sketches in Thyme and link up your project!  Have a great rest of the week!!!

The Paper Variety Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Now that my term is over at TPV I get to play along & get my chance in to win the awesome prizes!!! :D  They are currently having a tic-tac-toe challenge & I've got a big X on the board :D  

The photo is of my daughter and her friends during her pool party this past weekend!  I love action shots into the pool!  And lucky for them I got this one on the first try!  I used some of my favorite Imaginisce paper from the splash dance line in creating this layout!

Busy Weekend!!!

Hello!  I'm exhausted, sleepy and ready for bed, but I can't help but enjoy this peace & quiet!!!  This weekend was insane!  I had 2 large cupcake orders & 2 charity events along with my daughter's birthday party!  It's a good thing I was off work, or I would of gone mad!  I wanted to share with you a little of what I did this weekend!

 My bestie is in town and helped me make all the toppers, without her it would of been hard to get them all done!  

More of the display!  It was so hot out that my beautiful cake pops melted and fell off of the stick!  So I didn't get a picture of them!

The goodie bags!  Julia helped me with them, but I think the flags turned out cute for them!!

 And the very sunburnt birthday girl, I screened her up all day long!  She was in the pool from 9am-4pm!!  I wish she would let me cut her bangs!  She's growing them out!

 This is us celebrating her birthday and 2 other July babies birthday at the local women & children's shelter!  I feel it's important for her to appreciate all that she has in life and the blessings that we all have and the importance of giving back.  I think there is no better lesson in life.  We love spending time at the BOC.

A cupcake tower for a baby shower this weekend!  The cupcakes in the background was the invitation and I designed the 3 cupcakes to match the invite!

This was the cupcake plate for a very special one year old at the party!

This is the tower and cake that I did for last weekend's baby shower!  I told my husband that I hope I had no orders this week after last week, I need a break!! LOL!

Sketches in Thyme New Challenge!

hello!  my mom just flew out today and i had a great, but too short visit with her!  She went home with 2 projects to make me!  A new cupcake apron and an awesome quilt :D  I'm excited to see them both when she's done!!  For this sketch challenge I mirrored the sketch!  My mom is going through a lot of positive changes in her life right now & I'm very proud of her.  I actually made her this layout to remind her that "It all started with Change."  Both of my parents were actually engaged to other people when they met.  My dad came into the drug store where my mom worked and asked her for change so he could use the payphone, my mom joked with him and told him that he'd have to buy something!  So he did!  And then he ended up walking her home from work as well!  And the rest is history!  I love that story!! :D  I hope you'll go play along with us at SIT, you have 3 weeks to get your challenges in, so there is really no excuse :D  Here's the sketch!
