WHERE YOU CREATE with Lee-Anne Thornton

Thanks to my wonderful hubby for such a wonderful birthday gift.  He bought all the furniture from Ikea and assembled it himself and we are still married. Hahahaha.  It is a work in progress and I am yet to finish organizing it.  I still have the papers to organize in the closet and put my art on the walls.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

My Creative Sketches - April Sketch

Hello scrappy friends!  Today I am excited to share my first layout as a design team member at My Creative Sketches.

This layout was so fun to create of this little cutie pie who just turned two.  I used the April Creative Kit, from My Creative Scrapbook, for whom I guest designed for March and April.  This is from the April Creative Kit.  I love the bright, happy colours to this kit. 

Here is the April Sketch, which was designed by the talented Liz Chidester. I rotated the sketch.

Here is the prize you can win.  You have until May 14 at midnight (USA EST) to upload your layout to My Creative Sketches.  We are the sketch site for My Creative Scrapbook which has many wonderful kits to suit your personal style.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

April 15 Sketch At Stuck?! Sketches

Hello friends!  Happy Tuesday!  Today there is another sketch and design team reveal at Stuck?! Sketches and I created a layout on my niece who is an avid horse lover and enjoys English and Western riding as well as barrel racing and jumping.  My brother, who passed away when she was two, would have been proud of his daughter.  She really looks like him when he was a child and they both share the daredevil and fearless personality. Hahaha.

For this layout I used the Giddy Up Girl Collection from Carta Bella, which is perfect for any girl that loves horses.  I cut the accordion flower with my Silhouette Cameo and also a border and then laced it with some ribbon as well as used a texture stamp and some wood stars for interest.

Here is the sketch that is designed by owner and designer Laura Whitaker.  She really has a talent for designing amazing sketches.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to create with this sketch and link up for a chance at an amazing prize.  All the details and the entire design team reveal is here.

Have a creative day!
