This was a fun layout and the colors worked well together.  I kinda wish I had made the rhinestone circle smaller but I like the pattern.  I used a Mini Dots All Around template by TheCraftersWorkshop.com.  I love this little template for making circles with eyelets, brads, buttons, bling, etc.  Layout was based on Scrap Sketch #120.

Products used: Making Memories paper, Reminisce paper, KI Memories flourish glitter border sticker, Alice in Wonderland Disney stickers by EK Success, Basic Grey bling it rhinestones, and Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge.

I decided to just start creating so I cleaned off my desk and used the scraps that were already sitting here and this is what I came up with.  I feel like it’s missing something but I am afraid that if I try adding something I will overdo it.  I don’t normally make cards with much white space but I’m going to leave this one.

Products used: Reminisce paper, Making Memories paper, Basic Grey bling it rhinestones, Making Memories ribbon charm, CTMH organdy ribbon.

Challenges:
365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday – sketch (rotated)

I almost like this card.  I’m hoping my creativity will flow better tomorrow.  I think it is because I am working out of my card stash.  I have a basket that is overflowing with scraps and pieces and embellishments that I have decided would work better on cards than on my scrapbook pages.  Products used: KI Memories paper, Making Memories metal-rimmed tag.  I used watercolor pencils to color in the gift.  Brads, stamped image, ribbon, and metal mesh are unknown.

Challenges:
Friday Sketchers 62 – sketch
Belli Challenge #70 – Metal Tags
Pile It On Challenge #8 – Watercolor

Well, it was back to scrapbooking today.  This picture was taken at Ariel’s Grotto in Disneyland last month.  We all had a great time.  It is spendy but I would recommend it. Different princesses come to each table to chat, sign autographs, and take pictures.  The food was quite good as well.  Our favorite was probably the dessert.  I enjoyed the healthy choices and fresh produce (sure beats $6 hotdogs!).  Definately get priority seating.

For this layout I used the sketch below as a guide.  The 3D stickers were added on top of other images on the paper to add more dimension.  I don’t know how to explain these Disney stickers by EK Success but you can see that they don’t photograph well due to their shine.  I found them in the clearance section today at Target!  I figured this would be a good way to use a bunch of my flowers – I love them and just can’t get enough!  Good thing I have girls!  My first choice for the centers would have been brads but this was also a way to use up some of the many eyelets that I’ve been collecting. 🙂

Products used: Iced Got Flowers by Prima, eyelets from my stash, Making Memories vellum tag, pink rubon letters Lulu font by American Crafts, 3D stickers by EK Success, unknown Disney paper and adhesive felt ribbon.

Challenge: from Scrapper’s Block Challenge #7.
