Sharing Another Bloggers Post!

I feel like I need to share this here. Facebook won't let anyone post this anymore, because they dubbed it SPAM. It is not spam. It was 1000's of moms who read and FB took it upon themselves to remove it and block it from the entire social media page. Here is the post: the motherhood days we don’t talk about that much but we should You can find it over at Finding Joy . She also has another post this morning explaining what FB did. Please read. Please share. Please enjoy.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #77

Hi all! Just stopping by quick to show you all my version of AHSC #77! I had a pretty steady week, and didn't have time to start last Monday! So.....better late than never! I am at a scrapbook retreat this weekend, so I had some time to sneak this in! :D YAY!!! I decided to try out a LO (layout) instead of a card! Using a photo was a challenge! ;) {Challenge.....accepted!}

#77 Challenge:

My Version:


CTMH - Floretine scraps
CTMH - embellies
My Mind's Eye - Dolled Up "Day" Worn Paper Designed by                                  Jen Allyson

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #76

It's Monday!

I'm back to play again! I so enjoyed creating the sketch from last week! :D You can find this week's sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #76

Here is this week's sketch:

Here is what I came up with:

Supplies:CTMH card base
CTMH ink :Chocolate (distressing)
My Mind's Eye scraps

Now, when I first saw this challenge...that's exactly what it was....a challenge. I am not a fan of flowers. I mean, I love flowers but to scrapbook/design with them....meh....let's call it a weakness. The good thing about these challenges....(or what I've learned thus far!) is that you can look at the sketch...and make of it what you will! It's your own interpretation of how you want to use it! I love it! These challenges are also "forcing" me to create AND use up my stash! {Who isn't a craft hoarder?!} 

I did a second card just for fun here:

Thank you AHSC for all the Monday morning sketches! I look forward to Mondays now!! :D

~happy crafting!~
