SPCS June Sweet Kit

 This is another LO I made at Archivers using the June Sweet kit and a couple items from my stash. We moved to a new neighborhood with 2 pools a while back and this was one of our first times hanging out at the main pool. They were having an adult cannonball contest and the kids were having a blast watching all the action - including  their dad participate :P BTW, the pic of the LO  is a little crooked- not the items on the LO :P

Materials Used: AC Thickers, AC and BG PP, Bazzill CS, MM border sticker, Creative Charms bling and flower,  ribbon unknown, EK Success border  punch

Sweet Peach Crop Shop June Sketch (and Kit)

I made this LO during my scrapbooking retreat using both the SP June Juicy kit and their  June Sketch. I had these supah cute pics of my kids in the adorable recliners that they got for Christmas complete with built-in cup holders :P  Of course, someone had to hand them (unopened) Heineken for the pics. I really ended up liking this LO a lot though that bling circle keeps coming up - I need to glue it down better but oh well.

Materials Used: Lily Bee papers, Bazzill CS, OA spray mist, BG clip, MR bingo piece, AC Thickers, SC rub-ons, CC letters, MM brads, JB ticket, PP tape, embroidery thread, and HS bling that was cut apart and re-shaped for this

Sweet Peach Crop Shop April Juicy Kit

Here is a LO I did at Archiver's. This was taken at Christmas-time of my 2 beautiful nieces but I decided to go for girly instead of Christmas- with 2 boys, I relish the opportunity to use pink :P The BG PP, measuring tape, pattern, bling, and BG Petals were all kit stuff. I added the Chatterbox buttons and felt flower, K&Co paper clip, MM Brads, pins (Jenni Bowlin and Jillibean), and acrylic letters from my stash. The letters are the girls' initials and I circled their ages on the tape- which works for the 6.17 challenge at ScrapFit . :)

Sketchy Thursdays - 6.9 Challenge and I'm baaack

Wow! It has been almost 2 months since I've posted. In fact, I have hardly looked at blogs in those 2 months :( Life has been kind of insane: my grandfather was hospitalized in mid-March after a terrible bleed-out and passed away a month later. He fought hard but just could not come back He was released home under the care of hospice and died the next day. We had services for him 2 weeks later and, no sooner were we settling in back at home then my father was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. It's just been 3 weeks since his diagnosis and he is 3 days into radiation and chemo treatments. Crazy, huh?  Anyway, with all the chaos of end of school, my job, my kids, and all the family stuff, I have not scrapbooked much lately. But, I finally had a girls' SB retreat this past weekend and a night at Archiver's (the week before). This is based on the ST sketch from this past Thursday. It uses Bazzil Bling CS, Heidi Grace Harvest Row (old but I love it), Thichers, Dress It Up buttons, and a couple other random embellies of unknown origin :P.  Please pardon the flash - it is storming out and my time has been limited- nothing like the last minute huh?
