Dirt Bike Wish

Good Evening, I wanted to try this cool color combo over at Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo #41. I had it figured, and was going to find another piece of Amost Amethyst, and none. Sad, so I added more Kraft, when I get some more, I will try this color combo again. At least I had one piece. I went to 2 Sketches 4 You and found this one. Thought it worked out pretty well with the Dirt Bike. Thanks!

Good Evening Friends, I started this card this morning, and just got done putting it on my computer now, as I know my DH is coming to use my computer here soon. So I figured I best put this on here soon. Anyway, I love this color combo from The Color Dare #61, they are super with there colors.

Second Stab at a Scrapbook Challenge Layout

Good Evening, Wow what a fun busy weekend, hope you all did something to enjoy the spring weekend. We did some house work, yard/garage work. We had company, it was a fun busy weekend, and I even got to make another layout, since my friends daughter was the first shot at these scrapbook challenge layouts, I thought well her son would be wonderful also. So I found this cool sketch at Sketch Saturday, and thought it would be perfect for what I wanted to do. Then I seen at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge that they were doing the birthday challenge. As it turns out he was 13 on this lovely day. Then I figured I needed to find a boy-like color combo, and at Color Thowdown, this worked out great. I didn't have any soft sky, but I do have sage shadow, and it worked. So this is what I came up with. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all had a great Spring Weekend with the people that are important to you. Till next time.

My First Scrapbook Layout Challenge

Good Day friends, I thought since I didn't have many comments on my other layouts, I figured no one wanted to see all the creativity I do. I was talking to my friend Lori and she said, it wasn't that people didn't like them, but no one from the scrapbooking side seen them, I should use challenges and post them on their site...etc. She also said I could use card challenges and put them as layouts too, she is so smart that friend. So I hope I did these wonderful Challenges justice. And thanks Lori for setting me straight, as I love making cards and layouts. So my first color challenge came from the newly blog site The Shabby Tea Room, stop on over there, they are doing wonderful. I hope they like what I did. Then I went to this other site at Creative Scrappers, such a cool sketch, hope you like it. Onto more, maybe not today, but soon. Have a fantastic weekend, enjoy the sunshine.
