A little bit of this; a little bit of that

Pure randomness this post is.
{maybe I should talk in my Yoda voice the entire post...neh.}
I made this card...
Supplies: Patterned paper & cardstock (Die Cuts with a View), Alpha stickers (Doodlebug), Ribbon (KI Memories), Scalloped punch (The Paper Studio)
...based on this Becky Fleck layout sketch from the May/June issue of Memory Makers.

I made this little journal for a Sheer Delights feature today over on the KI Blog.
I used a Bind-it-all to make this out of cardstock & used a Sheer Delight to create a cool cover for it.
Then I embellished the Sheer Delight cover with Bloom paper & chipboard to make the flower.
I love that the Sheer Delight {obviously} makes the cover clear but still has some weight to it to protect the paper inside.

The My Little Shoebox blog is full of new projects made by the design team including the newest girls {Jana, Michelle, and Molly!}.
Please check it out!
Also, don't forget that the design team call ends on May 15th so get your entries in!
The challenge for this week over on the American Crafts blog is to create a layout inspired by an ad.
I had pulled this Target {of course} ad out of a People magazine a week or so ago so this was the perfect opportunity to use it.

And this is my layout.
Copied from the ad almost exactly!

Remember this layout about my Daddy Bill and my brother David?
Daddy Bill died yesterday at the ripe ole age of 95.
His wife {my Grams} and 2 sons {my dad & Uncle Jim} were with him.
He had lived a very full life.
And I, in my simple mind, am joyful that I got to honor a little bit of his life in this layout in the same month that he died.


Keep smiling!

Hey G! I just realized who is on your ad scrap page. Did you know she is also a fan of that other team? I didn't realize she was until I saw a pic of her w/children dressed in that hideous garb. Of course when I told dh that she was he already knew being one of demented mind like yourself. ;) btw, I'm surrounded by all of you way up here in TN. Who would've thunk? Love ya, girlie.
