Scrapbookaholic by Abby Challenge

**It looks as though this post did not go up on time, SORRY!!**

I am so excited to be able to participate in another Scrapbookaholic by Abby challenge!  This week the challenge is to use red, white and blue. :)

I went for a more non-traditional approach.  I have a family friend that lost her husband last week.  He was very sick, but it was still hard.  I made this card for her to let her know we are thinking of her.





The heart was cut from Home Decor and More and the paper is just from the scratch paper I had.

Like I said, not traditional red, white and blue; but it means something. :)

Make sure you stop by at Scrapbookaholic by Abby to see what the rest of the DT has made!  You'll love their projects!!!!!!  We'd love to see what you make as well!!!  Please stop by and join us!! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!! :)

Beach Party Blog Hop!!






I'm so happy that you are here!!  I am so excited to be a part of this super fun blog hop!!  I love the summer time, it means running through the sprinklers with my little ones. :)  Unfortunately, I don't live next to a beach, so the sprinklers are as close as I get.  During this blog hop we're celebrating the summer/beach days.  If you live anywhere near me, we have been freezing for WAAAAAAY too long; we're happy to see summer/warmer weather here! :)

Well, I hope you are here after visiting Celeste L. at Touched by a Butterfly; isn't she amazing?!!!!!!!  I love her style!! :)  If you just happened to stop here first, make sure you start at the beginning with Abby at Scrapbookaholic by Abby.  You'll love to see what everyone else has in store for you (plus you'll want to know what prizes are in store)! :)

For the first day of this hop I created a card. Very simple, but fun.  It seems like lately I've been having one problem/emergency come up after another problem/emergency.  That was my inspiration for the card.

The paper I used is from the DCWV travel pack.  The castle is from the Birthday Cakes cartridge.  I tried using an Action Wobble (first time, and I think it's super cute).  I used a Sakura gelly roll pen on the castle as well as to write the phrase. :)

I hope you like it, or at least I hope it makes you smile!!!  You're next stop is Carley over at The Real iCarley.  You'll love her project!!!!!!!!!  Make sure you tell her I say 'hi'! :)

If you get lost the line-up is below.  Thanks again for stopping by!!!! :)
