On another note, my second Amber Ink project is due this week. I will give you a little sneak peek - I found this stamp and thought it was so absolutely adorable that I just had to use it....check back later this week to see what I came up with.
Welcome to my new followers too - I am so excited that I am now up to 7! Thanks for following along with me and my scrappy life!
Have a great week - Enjoy!

I will explain what all that means in a second, but first, check out my new badge...
Pretty cool, huh?? I sure think so. So now onto the good stuff - what is Amber Ink you might ask, I sure asked. It is an uber cool online, digital scrapping supply site along with an awesome blog. This digital scrappin' stuff is new to me, but it is so simple and so incredibly easy. Just check out the site, pick out what you like and complete your purchase. Once that is done, you get directions to download to your computer and use whenever and as much as you like. I especially love their digi stamps, I saved mine on Word and I can resize, change the color and print to my little hearts content. Give it a try, I guarantee you'll love it too!
There are a few more ladies joining me on my journey as torchbearer. They are....Cathy Weber is the new Blue torcherbearer, Michele Greenwood is rocking the Orange torch, Anne Cullen is pretty as the Pink torchbearer and Jane Matsumoto is running with the Purple torch. Check out their sites as the month rolls on to see what fabulous creations they come up with.
Now onto the really good stuff - here's the card I made for our first official assignment.
I used the "spin pin" paper in a couple of different sizes and shades. Love the pages of paper choices! I also used the cute as can be "you set my heart a flutter" stamp, just printed it right out on my cardstock - so simple, so easy, so perfectly perfect! The flower design is scraplifted from a very talented gal at the scrap-room. It is 3 circles cut out and folded into quarters. On 2 of the circles, I cut along the folds, almost to the middle, but not all the way through. The third was cut into quarters. I distressed the edges a bit and layered then I added my heart into the middle - VOILA! Here's a close up on the flower itself -
So I think that about covers it - WOW! Tomorrow on the Amber Ink blog is Aloha Friday, hope to see you there. Check back soon to see some more great assignments, until then have a great scrappy day! Enjoy -

She really is an angel 95% of the time, it's that other 5% that is the challenge. When it was finally time to leave, she refused to get into the van. She sat in the dugout yelling that she was staying at the field! When we finally got home, she sat in the van by herself for 10 minutes before coming inside. She didn't even want to talk to her dad on the phone when he called. Then this morning she was back to her sweet, happy self. Kids are a joy, aren't they:) Here is a very simple page of her at t-ball last year that I just finished. She ends up being about the only girl who shows up.If you look at the 4th of July page of Luke, you will see it's same sketch, different paper. Kind of a boring page, but a good page is a done page, right?
As for sketchy Thursday, here is the page I did last night based on a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. They are looking for a guest designer for May and this was the sketch. The page feels like it needed something more, but when I start adding things just to add, I usually end up disappointed with the results. If anyone has any suggestions....
Have a great day - Enjoy!

The page is based on the April 7th Sassy sketch . The hand made flowers were easy peasy too - check back soon and maybe I will do a little tutorial on how to make them. Until then, have a great afternoon!
The page is based on the Scrap-Room's blog sketch challenge.

Anyways, the scrapping bug seems to have hit lately and I have a few more pages to share with you. That scrapping bug better keep biting, the pages are both from the 4th of July - - in 2009. I am happy with both of them, but looking at them on the computer I am realizing that the one with the stars on top could have used something more on top, a little shape of some kind and the other one could have used a splash of a brighter color somewhere. Live and learn I guess!
I used a sketch from Page Maps for the "just you" LO and from Sassy sketches for the "Firework" LO.
Have a great afternoon - the sun is finally shining here. Hopefully it is sunny for you too. Enjoy -

Here's a page I finished up last night - loved the nice green grass, I can't wait! I had to go out onto the deck to take the picture because I waited too long and didn't have enough light inside. As I was out there, one of our dogs proceeded to step (with her muddy paws) on the page. Not sure if the paw prints show up on here or not, but never fails to be easy around here. Anyways, hope you enjoy the page, it was a fun one. I used a sketch from Page Maps - love that site.
Have a great rest of your Monday!
