I am so happy ...

yes, I'm very happy to be home and relaxing this weekend after lots of travel the last few weeks.  I'm really happy to be at my Scrap/Stamp desk and crafting away.   This card didn't turn out exactly as I pictured however sometimes "done is done".    This is my 2nd installment for the 100 in 100 SCS Challenge.   It's a great way to continue to use stash.  I made 10 of these cards.   The sketch is from June Page Maps and is this week's Paper Secrets CYAO21 Challenge card. 

Supplies:  Paper - CTMH Dotty for You,  CTMH Stamps c1364 TLC,  a1113 A Game,  CTMH Ink Cocoa, Smoothie, Lagoon,  CTMH Opaque Pearl, CTMH Glitz Stardust Glitter Glue

This is my card for our Card Challenge over at Paper Secrets for CYAO20.   I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do with the sketch that was chosen but after a couple days thinking about it,  I decided that I wanted to do some cards for the 4th of July Holiday upcoming!   I love fireworks so this is a fun time of year for me.  These cute papers are from BoBunny 6x6 Liberty Pack.    These are my first cards for the 100 in 100 Challenge over at SCS!  6 down, 94 to go!

:)   Big Smiles All Around here ... GRADUATION!   Now I know we were supposed to be making cards for "Vacation " Theme thanks to Barb's great inspiration for our Crafty Girls Blog Hop this month but I must say,  as a proud Mama,  my time and focus has been on details for Graduation and Grad Party ...    SO  with BIG SMILES,  I'm happy to say that My baby graduated and now this weekend it's time for us to head off to other Family Graduation (nephew- YAY!) and some Family fun time!   Woohoo for us!   That's a great vacation! 

This card idea actually came from Got Sketch #107 for scrapbooking.   It's a GREAT way to use up scraps so if you're looking for an idea,  you'll want to book mark this one, LOL!   This worked perfectly for the challenge over at AMuse Studio Blog to focus on sentiments!   This one sums it up so nicely!

You Did It!

My "baby" is graduating from high school today,  YAY for him!   I'm so proud  ... of course, I'm a little sad too because this means he's moving away soon to college.  It's all good,  it's that time of life.   The card sketch is actually a June Page Maps card sketch and it's our sketch for Challenge #17 for CYAO over at Paper Secrets Blog.   It works out great because this week over at Perfect Sentiments it's an "anything goes week" and we got to choose a sentiment.   I think this pretty well sums it up for this week! 
Way to Go JT!
