Hello Spring

I followed several challenges to create my Week 18 page for the 52 Week Challenge at Scrappin'-n-Chattin' I had planned a page about our last agility trial, but I was not able to get the photos yet.  The photographer is away at another trial.  Maybe next week.

I really wanted to join the challenge at Lasting Memories.  It's been so long since I've been able to play along with their challenges since I was creating calendar pages for so long, so that was my starting point for figuring out what to create.  Their challenge this week is called "Seasons Change".  And as I was looking through some of the photos I've taken this year, I found the perfect set for this subject.

Of course I needed a sketch.  And Scrap It Girl has a sketch challenge this month.  It's an extremely versatile sketch, so I was excited to give it a try.

And Let's Get Sketchy has "A Little Something" this week.  Since Monday was the 5th one of the month, there is a special challenge.  You can choose a sketch from any site and combine that with one of your favorite color combinations.  Well, I love using red along with several other primary colors.  The photos I chose feature a red tulip, so the color combo worked perfectly.  Here's my page.

I also entered this page into the monthly challenge at SnC to include a quote on your page.  My quote is written on the green strip on the left side of the paper.  It reads:   'Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's Party!"  ~  Robin Williams.'

I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.  Thanks for looking.

Happy Birthday Card

This year I am still participating the 52 Week Challenge at Scrappin'-n-Chattin'.  The challenge is to create a layout a week.  This is my 3rd year.  In addition to the layout challenge, we also have a card challenge this year.  I am trying this as well.

For my Week 18 card, I created a birthday card.  At SnC there is also a recipe for the weekly cards.  The requirement for the week was to use at least 3 brads on the card.

I used the current sketch from Seems A Little Sketchy to create my card.  I really love using these sketches.

And here's my card.  Pretty simple, but I like it.

I have a rare day at home today, on National Scrapbook Day.  I don't think I will have time to do any crafting, but hopefully get a lot done.  Have a great day and thanks for looking.
