I hope you are relaxing and spending time with your family and loved ones this weekend. We are also celebrating my son, Houston's, 11th birthday. Most kids would request a chocolate cake or mounds of ice cream for their birthday dessert, but Houston asked for Banana's Foster. YUMMY! It was so good. We also enjoyed hambergers, hot dogs, potato salad, and fried corn. We love you, Houston!

"Material Girl" Layout
Join us at Scrap Tiffany for the Week #21 Challenge: Make a layout or card inspired by a Song Title. I thought long and hard about what song to feature. Kevin suggested "Material Girl". Is that a hint, honey? Anyway...I thought COOL. I can work with that. I created this layout about my love of stuff: vintage home decor, jewelry, and scrapbook goodies. Come on over to Scrap Tiffany and join in on this week's challenge.
"Congratulations, Grad" Layout
I created this layout with beautiful papers and embellies by Kiki Art to celebrate the graduation of my nephew, Anthony. He is counting the days until he is officially a high school graduate. I incorporated pieces from many Kiki Art collections: Antologie Amor, Hot Air Balloon, Antologia Magica, Antologia Familia, and Antologia China. I love how the collections can be mixed together to create something completely new. The bright colors and fun, youthful patterns are just perfect for a celebration. I can’t wait to use my scraps to create a card for Anthony.
Have a wonderful day!

Love the artwork! I was inspired by the colors: blue, yellow, and pink and the blue sky background. I incorporated these colors in my card featuring Suri, the beautiful Whimsical Ink Sorority May Kit mermaid. You can find her and tons of other gorgeous stamps at the QKD store. I also used patterned paper by Kiki Art, transparency paper by Hambly Studios, and markers by Copic.
The next stop on the hop is Erika's blog. I know she has created something fabulous. Please share your projects based on this week's challenge. I would love to come visit your site.
Have a great week!
And...here is the prize kit.
Remember, you have until May 31 to upload your project via Mr Linky. See ya there!

Have you seen the new Real Sports collections by Reminisce? I love the coordinating stickers, diecuts, and papers. Too Cute...and available for so many sports. With 5 busy, athletic kids, we have plenty of sport photos...baseball, swimming, soccer, football, karate, wrestling, cheerleading. The sports shaped papers are so cool!

I chose to create this green monochromatic card with the beautiful new stamp, Soliel. She is definitely one of my favorites. I colored the image with Copic markers and embellished with a title sticker by American Crafts and an acrylic heart by Heidi Swapp. The decorative border punch is by Martha Stewart.
I would love to see what monochromatic creations you create, so please link me up. The next stop on the hop is Terri's blog. Also, don't forget to stop by the QKD store to check out all of the wonderful new rubber stamps. Have a fabulous Monday!

I created my card with this great sketch using the Amour stamp. Isn't she beautiful? I love all of those flowers and hearts in the design. She is one sexy girlie. I colored the image with my Copic markers.
Please come by the QKD store to see the wonderful new stamps being revealed this month. We have transitioned from acrylic to rubber stamps! You can still purchase the remaining acrylic stamps at a great discount.
