It's a Rainy Monday

Happy rainy Monday! The kids and I have today off for Martin Luther King day and it's pouring rain. Really pouring rain. We are supposed to get over an inch this afternoon with thunder and lightening. It's a good day to stay inside and craft!!

I wanted to share some exciting news I have today. I am now part of the Croppin' Paradise Design Team!! They are a great store that carry some of the latest and greatest paper lines and embellishments. I am very excited to be part of this talented design team. Come on over and check out our forum, we have some really fun crops and challenges coming up that you will not want to miss!!

Here is a quick layout I did using a sketch from Stuck Sketches. I've been scrapping photos from last summer lately, it's been a fun change from doing Christmas projects. This layout I used a summer kit from Color Me Daisy that featured Lime Rickey papers from Basic Grey.


Just a fun summery layout of my daughter and her best friend from Kindergarten. I made that layered flower on the Cricut and used paints and lots of stickles on the acrylic butterfly.



Hope you are having a good Monday and that your weather is better than ours today. Although we do need the rain, so in a way it's good. Not so easy to get in my runs with it pouring outside! Thanks for stopping by...
