I've been creating! :)

Hi friends!! I've been creating and I have a couple of things to share with you today, the first being this adorable layout I made yesterday about my girls. My amazing hubby got me a waterproof camera this past Summer that you can take underwater with you and we had SO much fun playing with it! The pictures turned out so clearly and I absolutely loved having this different kind of pool shot to scrap...




Supplies: Fancy Pants Beach Babe Paper - Fish Farm, Tropical, Jumping Fish; Fancy Pants Celebrate Paper - Confetti; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Rose Coral; Studio Calico Mister Huey - Calico White; Ali Edwards Stamp Set - This One; Martha Stewart Heart Confetti Punch; Fiskars Flit On By Punch; Fiskars Nice Tri Punch; Basic Grey Buttons; Tim Holtz Edge Distresser; SF Natalie Computer Font

Isn't that awesome?? The girls got super excited when they saw all the pictures of themselves under the water so I knew I had to scrap some. Plus they're just fabulous!! ;)

----------

I also made this really cute set of mini cards this morning. There are a couple of challenges happening right now that I wanted to play along with (listed below) and this is what I came up with for all of them together...




Supplies: Fancy Pants The Daily Grind Paper - Break Time; October Afternoon Thrift Shop Paper - Near Mint; Papertrey Ink White Cardstock; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Blackbird; Ali Edwards Stamp Set - Sentimentally Ali; Fiskars Flit On By Punch

Don't you just love them?? They're 3 3/4 by 3 3/4. I have some 4x4 envelopes that'll work perfectly for them and even though they're too small to mail, they are perfect little cards to hand out and let somebody know how thankful I am for them. I'm sure I'll use them up quickly. ;)

Thanks for stopping by today...I really appreciate it!
