UYS CHallenge #201 Lots of Layers

Good Morning Everyone

Just stopping by to share a layout I created for Use Your Stuff.  This photo was taken at a friends wedding in March last year.  It is my gorgeous daughter with one of her brothers best mates from soccer.  I have been keeping it for just the right layout and I think this is it.  I loved Lori's challenge as it gave me another reason to use up some of my off cuts that I have been hoarding.  Too pretty to just toss in the bin.  I love how the how layout came together.  Please make sure you all pop over to the UYS blog to check out what the other talented ladies have created to inspire you this week.  And don't forget to link up your challenge entry at the bottom of the blog post!  


Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge.

UYS Challenge #200 "Celebrate" & Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to our 200th Challenge!

We are so honored that so many of you have followed and played along with us as we give you challenges to help inspire your creativity and we get so excited to see your projects every week!

 For our challenge we are using the theme CELEBRATE~!

You can celebrate a special person, a milestone, a holiday or event! However the theme relates to you!

 To help us CELEBRATE we are very excited to have Kim Evans the owner of Emerald Creek Crafts sponsor our Blog Hop and she has graciously offered a prize to one lucky winner.





Emerald Creek Craft Supplies is synonymous with Kim Evans. The Emerald Creek was named for my passions, my best friend and husband Duncan who I have known and loved for 21 years, and my west coast passion for nature and the out doors. In the last 3 years I added the rubber stamp manufacturing division to my company with the intent to move from construction to crafting. This past year I felt it was time to launch out with the company. The reception from everyone has been wonderful. I believe in being happy and crafting makes me happy. I believe nothing should collect dust and love coming up with many new looks for each of my craft products. I also believe that everyone has more creativity within them that they can discover and I love seeing the joy when they create something new and outside of their comfort. So we come to you as Emerald Creek Craft Supplies: Helping you unlock your creative potential!


You can find the store here and Emerald Creek also has their own great blog with lots of DARES so be sure to drop by and see what they have to get your creativity flowing!



 In order to win this great prize,






you have to leave a comment on each DT member's blog/gallery. The lucky winner will be picked from one of the blogs but we're not telling you which one!  Feel free to drop by Emerald Creek's FB page as well to say hi!

Don't forget, this is also a challenge, so we really want to see what you are celebrating and be sure to link up below.

Paper Craft Addicts November Card Challenge

Good Morning Everyone

Today I have a card that I made for a challenge on a facebook group called Paper Craft Addicts (please note it is a closed group so you do have to ask to join).  The challenge I set for this months was for everyone to create a card background!  The card below was created using mainly Stampin' Up products.  I really love how it turned out.  What do you think?



Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day.

UYS - Challenge #198

Morning Everyone

Time to share another DT layout that I created for Use Your Stuff. This weeks challenge was a simple one for a great deal of us, to use up some of our "old" stash!  And let's admit it who doesn't have plenty of "old" stash to create with?  I know I do!  So I choose to create a layout this week highlighting a photo of my gorgeous siamese cat "Simba".


Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you find some inspiration in my layout and please don't forget to head on over to Use Your Stuff to check out all the awesome layouts & cards created by my very talented fellow DT members.

Happy Crafting

Hugs
