New Designs -- BUGS!

I have four new designs posting at Die Cut Designer this weekend! I love them: Dragonflies and Butterflies. They're more sophisticated/realistic cuts, not cartoon-y, so I hope you enjoy them!

This week's challenge at My Sheri Crafts is a recipe, something I've never done before. Use:
1 Button
2 Designer Papers
3 Flowers

So, I made a LO to commemorate my littlest DD's first experience with cupcakes! She was, and continues to be, a little girl who doesn't enjoy unusual textures on her hands, so she kept her hands well out of the way and devoured this chocolate yummy by sticking out her tongue and leaning forward. What a great idea, I think I might try it next year on my birthday! Not sure how many people would want to share my cake after I did it, though!

1 brown button
2 papers: K&Co Tim Coffey Tuscan Sunflowers
3 flowers: by prima
trim ribbon: K&Co BW Flora & Fauna Vellum Adhesive borders
cuts: frame is from Paper Lace by Cricut; title font: Adore
tags: unknown brand, sprayed with Glimmer Mist Sunflower

Flowers as Accents

My girls love spring babies, and this petting zoo is always at our community Summerfest. I love this paper, but can only take small doses of such a busy pattern. This LO is based on a PageMap, and works really well to incorporate that pattern but with balance.

Paper: DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies stack, solid cardstock
Dry embossing: Cuttlebug Swiss dots
Prima flowers
cut: Elegant Edges by Cricut
ink for all edges

My DD has this great electric scooter! It's usually the first toy to make it out of storage when spring finally arrives! Here she is on her first scooter ride of the year!

Paper: DCWV Mod-Retro stack
cuts: Campin' Critters (scooter) and Elegant Edges (tag) by Cricut
Random letter stickers from my stash!
I-rock gems

Donating our Hair -- not SB related (yet!)

My DDs and I got our hair cut and are donating to Locks of Love, an organization that makes custom wigs for children. I wanted to share my pics with you! I can't wait to scrap these!
Hannah (aged 8)


Teagan (aged 3 1/2)

11.5 inches:

11 inches:

(Mine was 20 inches)


Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this worthy organization! While we do not personally have a family member or friend who is in need, there are many children who are, and I am so proud that my girls would do this. They do this in honour of my mother who died of cancer when Hannah was 2 and before Teagan was born.

ps. Happy Mother's Day :-)
