A Little Challenge

So I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself these days.
I've hurt a ligament in my elbow playing ice hockey.
And it's playoffs, so I continued to play with the injury.
And now I've developed tendonitis in my shoulder - and it's very painful.
But what really sucks is that I am unable to papercraft.
I managed to whip up this little page below using a template today.
I had to stay home from work, so I had a bit of time.
I've been in the middle of a blog redesign which I might manage to finish up this long weekend.
But we'll see.
And it's Connor's birthday today, and his party tomorrow.
And I'm feeling sorry for myself.
But I'll get over it.
Anyway, I managed to get this little page done today.  
I used the kit from Mye De Leon and the template shown below
Hope you are having a good day.   Have a great long weekend.

Thanks for stopping by,

You and Me

I was playing around with Ampersands (that adorable sign that means 'and' that you see everywhere these days) and my Silhouette and cut out a bunch of these.   I decided to use the negative image and my mister to create the card above.  I used lots of different blues and greens to match that adorable background paper from Deena Rutter.   I also used the the Silhouette and cut out the 'you' and 'me'.  I took my misted/sponged ampersand and cut it out with the window framelit from Stampin' Up!

I stitched around the base layer first and then popped all the layers up on dimensionals.

Colour Q Combo #235

Ok I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this combo this week over at the Colour Q.
I found this page really fun to create 
First I started with this adorable photo of my kids taken in Palm Springs last week.

I used this great template from Wishing Well Creations.

I picked up these freebies from the DigiScrap Parade and put them together on this page.

Muse Challenge #60

I thought I'd try out this week's challenge over at the MUSE blog.

The rules are that you need to explain your interpretation of the Muse card.

Firstly, I chose my palette from the colours on the card.

I added a bit of vellum, and the banners too like on the Muse card.

And then I paper pierced around the edge to echo the border around the Muse card.

Amber Shaw March Challenge

I am loving these freebies that I picked up this week.  For this page I used this template from Amber Shaw and this kit from Bella Gypsy.

Last week we were in the land of Disney.  We had a fun time.  We were there last year, but this time we went with another family we know, and we felt we had a better handle on how to negotiate the lineups at Disneyland.  Above are some photos of our first day in the Park.  We started in California Adventures and had so much fun.

I totally love Purple and Green so this kit is perfect for me.  I love, love, love the colours in this kit.

Colour Q Challenge #234

Yeah, so here we are in Southern California.  We had a blast in Disneyland last week and now we are in Palm Springs.  Last week was our second visit to Disneyland in 2 years, so it wasn't completely new to the kids, but this year we went with another family, and let the kids have some say in what we did in the park.  Teagan really wanted to visit Tinkerbell in Pixie Hollow.  So 30 minutes in a lineup led to a visit with one of Tink's friends - Fawn, the animal fairy, and then a visit with Tinkerbell herself  Teagan was completely overwhelmed, but loved the experience.  Brad and I managed to take her in alone, because Connor was off with our friends and she not only loved the attention from us, but also the attention from the fairies.  As the journaling explains, after some questioning from the fairies, they decided that Teagan was a "WaterFairy" and judgin from all the time spent in the swimming pool here in Palm Springs - she certainly is.

I used the newest release from Deena Rutter to make this page, and a cool template from Fiddle Dee Dee Designs.
