Project Life - 4th of July


There was nothing else noteworthy for the week but the 4th of July made up for that. Stuck On U Sketches PL challenge is to use buttons. I found some red star buttons that made perfect accents for this week.

New Shirt


I used the sketch from Stick It Down for this layout of my grandson. His mom had a t-shirt made for him with his b-boy name Digz. I am also entering this at Craft Hoarders Anonymous for the use a tag challenge and at Scrapping4Fun for the anything goes challenge.


I Heart America


I made this 4th of July layout for The Paper Girls red, white and blue challenge. My phone can be set to take six quick pictures and I love how the photos turned out. I captured launch, explosion and fade with one touch of the button. The sketch I used called for flourishes but I used twisted twine and star buttons instead.

Air Show


Time for a new challenge at Sketches in Thyme. I turned the sketch 90 degrees as my photos were horizontal. Isn't this an awesome sketch?





Sponsor for the challenge is Scrappiness Designs.

So hop on over to Sketches in Thyme. Can't wait to see your entries.

My grandson's birthday, a new haircut and some crazy daisies growing in the driveway were the high points of this week. I am entering this at Stuck On U Sketches for the stickles/project life challenge. The centers of the yellow flowers was made with green/gold stickles.

Super Dad


The June 22nd challenge at Lasting Memories is "Bannerific" - to use a banner.  I'm very proud of all my son has accomplished this year and what a great role model he is to his sons and nephews.

The June 8th challenge at Lasting Memories is "Wishing You Blue Skies" - to use blue and white. Fortunately the challenge doesn't end until July 4th because while I made the layout for father's day I forgot to do my blog post and enter until today. Oh how I wish there were as many pictures from then as we can take today. But I did find this photo of my dad and I taken while on vacation.
