hey cuz!


Hi! Today I'm sharing with you one of my new favorite pages. Of course, being Thursday, this page is for the latest Sketchy Thursdays sketch. And... the prize this week is AWESOME! Crop Chocolate is partnering up with us again, and they are giving away $50 of CropCredit. How cool is that?!

Head on over to Sketchy Thursdays and check out the latest sketch. Link up over there by next Wednesday to be eligible for the prize!


The pictures on this page are my son and his little cousin—my niece—Ella. We got to see them for the first time in a long time when we went to Michigan for my sister's graduation. Nate and Ella got along great, and they are 2 years apart in age. I just love these pictures of them.


Except for the lettering and the brads, the flowers, rub-ons and papers were bought at Scrappy Chic in Livonia, MI. This is my mom's favorite place to scrap shop and OMG... YAY!! I managed to restrain myself and only walk away with $30 worth of stash, but I could have done way more damage.

If you live anywhere near this store, you HAVE to go! I'm tempted to fly there to shop! It really is that great—at least for me.

And yes, Mom, you were right. Those flowers you picked up for me are awesome! I used them on this page, they worked perfectly!! Love 'em!!


This page was also made for the Scrap Freak Luau Crop. One of the challenges is the Lei Challenge, to use bright and bold flowers. This Thrift Shop paper from October Afternoon screamed Luau—they just look tropical to me. To play along with the Crop (all work due by June 19) and the Lei Challenge, check it all out over HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today!


Supplies: October Afternoon (pp), Basic Grey (brads), Prima (flowers), Martha Stewart (border punch), Pink Paislee (chipboard letters), American Crafts Thickers (vinyl lettering), October Afternoon (rub-ons)
