I grabbed a few photos from our recent Disney adventure and went to work. 
First I started with this template from zoliofrope

The I pulled out this kit from Bella Gypsy Designs.

And this collaboration kit from Pixels and Co

And bits and pieces from all these kits from Mye De Leon

Alley Way Stamps

I found these cute little digital freebies from The Alley Way Stamps, so I decided to try a hybrid card with them.  I'm not terrible keen on the colours in this card, but I was also trying to use a new pad of paper from Authentique that I found on sale at a local crafting store.  Overall I kind of like the mix of crisp, bold stamps with the softness of the vintage paper.

A Little Challenge

So I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself these days.
I've hurt a ligament in my elbow playing ice hockey.
And it's playoffs, so I continued to play with the injury.
And now I've developed tendonitis in my shoulder - and it's very painful.
But what really sucks is that I am unable to papercraft.
I managed to whip up this little page below using a template today.
I had to stay home from work, so I had a bit of time.
I've been in the middle of a blog redesign which I might manage to finish up this long weekend.
But we'll see.
And it's Connor's birthday today, and his party tomorrow.
And I'm feeling sorry for myself.
But I'll get over it.
Anyway, I managed to get this little page done today.  
I used the kit from Mye De Leon and the template shown below
Hope you are having a good day.   Have a great long weekend.

Thanks for stopping by,

You and Me

I was playing around with Ampersands (that adorable sign that means 'and' that you see everywhere these days) and my Silhouette and cut out a bunch of these.   I decided to use the negative image and my mister to create the card above.  I used lots of different blues and greens to match that adorable background paper from Deena Rutter.   I also used the the Silhouette and cut out the 'you' and 'me'.  I took my misted/sponged ampersand and cut it out with the window framelit from Stampin' Up!

I stitched around the base layer first and then popped all the layers up on dimensionals.

I found this page really fun to create 
First I started with this adorable photo of my kids taken in Palm Springs last week.

I used this great template from Wishing Well Creations.

I picked up these freebies from the DigiScrap Parade and put them together on this page.

Muse Challenge #60

I thought I'd try out this week's challenge over at the MUSE blog.

The rules are that you need to explain your interpretation of the Muse card.

Firstly, I chose my palette from the colours on the card.

I added a bit of vellum, and the banners too like on the Muse card.

And then I paper pierced around the edge to echo the border around the Muse card.
