Dippin' Dot Digis

Are you ready for Dippin' Dot Digi's over at the Paper Popsicles blog? Wednesday are about pulling out those fun digis and card templates and joining us by linking up your great projects! Remember this week is all about ribbon, so use ribbon somewhere on your project.

For my card I used Elizabeth in her sailor dress-is she not a doll? I just picture waving a little flag or ready for adventure on the ocean. I clored my ribbon using my B39 copic to match my papers, which again were from my scraps.

Head on over to Paper Popsicles to see what rest of DT has created today!

I just love her little swimming hat, cute flip flops, and a nice ice cold drink for a relaxing day at beach.

I used a sentiment from one of those $1 Studio G sets, papers are from my scrap pile, image is colored with copics, and I added a little distressing around edge of my image with scissors. Also added a few little blings to my card as well as to her stylish swimming cap.

Enchantment Blog Hop with The Stamping Boutique!

Welcome to The Stamping Boutique where the design team will be featuring the new Enchantment line. This is a gorgeous line of fairies that Tracey has drawn that you can find here. Tracey has even drawn one that is just being revealed today one her blog which is your 1st stop here. You will want to make sure you hope along and leave comments at all stops because one LUCKY person will win the the newly released image. If you came here from Mary's blog you are on the right track.

I decided to do a layout for my project because I got the beautiful image called Hidden to work with. I am trying to get back into my scrapbooking and started an All About Me book for my boys quite a while ago and never completed. I do not have many pics of me because I am always the one taking the pics. So I thought this image would be perfect for some pics of me peeking out from behind my camera.

My journaling says "Hidden…yes this is me, always behind the camera and rarely in front. Do you see me? Will you remember me? I hope you will and know that while I may be Hidden I am always with you and watching over you! Love Mom!"

Here is a closeup of my fairy, I don't know if you can see it but i used my clear At-You Spica pen to add some glitter to all the flower petals and fairy wings. I used a sketch from 52 Sketches,52 weeks and it can be found here.

Now time to continue hopping, so head on over to Melissa's blog to see her wonderful creation. Oh by the way, during the hop and only until midnight Tracey if offering a 40% discount of images- what are you waiting for hurry on over to the TSB store to get all those cuties you have had your eye on!

Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe #25

Crafts 4 Eternity brings another great recipe challenge this week. I have vowed to get back into my scrapbooking, so I am challenging myself to use these weekly challenges to make some layouts using the recipe. Want to join me?

For this week's recipe challenge-we were to use the sketch, some note paper, and a butterfly. I grabbed this paper that I thought looked like notebook paper from my Storyteller's Monthly Kit Club and the other pieces to make this layout. I have the perfect pics of my 5 year old helping me bake and licking the spatula, now to just find them. I really wanted to incorporate a digi image do I asked Tracey over at The Stamping Boutique to draw me an AJ the chef. Isn't he adorable? Let me know what you think of my layout, I have been away from scrapbooking for awhile and hoping my mojo is coming back!
