Good Morning to Everyone!! I hope everyone's week went well. This was the first week that my daughter went back to school. Many changes to get use to. I have to make sure that she has dinner before practice, gets her homework done, and make sure she's not texting when she is suppose to be sleeping. I was shocked that one of her friends tried texting her at midnight. She has to be up at 6:00 am. Also, the drama has begun. The first day of school and the girls are already talking about each other and making their own little groups. One group talking about the other and so on. If they only knew that once they are out of school, none of that drama will matter in their life. They were have to learn to become grown ups.
Well, let's get to our challenge this week. As the title says we are making only cards that are rectangles. Mayzy Art will be sponsoring our challenge. We were allowed to choose anything in their store. I picked Nimbus The Angel. I love Angels and really believe in them so this image was not hard for me to choose. You may love it and want to enter our challenge so you can get this image. Here's what you will get if you win this week.

5 Digital Stamps
Of The Winner's Choice
From The
Mayzy Art Store

Let me show you the card I made with Nimbus The Angel. I really hope you like her.

The background paper has clouds and raindrops on it. It may be a little hard to see. After I put on the flowers I thought it needed something more so I put ribbon coming out from under the flower. These flowers is one of my favorites that I have in my collection. Here's the items that I used to make this card.
Cardstock -- Close To My Heart and Colorbok
Paper -- DCWV
Glitter -- Ranger (Crystal Ice)

Well we are at another end of my post and this week's challenge. Just remember that you need to link your projects at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. All the design teams cards will be there also. So, I hope you have a Wonderful Sunday and a Wonderful Week. It's suppose to be close to the 90's here so I will stay hot. Goodbye Everyone!!

Welcome to another challenge this Sunday. I think you will find this challenge fun. I did. When I seen that we are doing this challenge I had an idea in my head immediately. As you know, my blog is also about Making Memories. Growing up there were no pictures laying around for us to look at. There wasn't those family albums. I wanted to make my children a Family Memory book to see who their family is. My Grandson even asks who is in the picture. I had the picture in my mind when picking out my frame and I also switched things up by doing a scrapbook page to add to that book. It's a picture of my mom from mother's day. We have not spent mother's day together in over a decade. Many reasons behind that but now I can say that there is progress with this mother - daughter relationship.
Let's get to the sponsor of the week. Delicious Doodles is that sponsor. They were kind to our design team and let us pick one of their great frames. The frame I chose is called " HYDRANGEA AND BUTTERFLY FRAME." I had never had hydrangea flowers before so I had to look them up to see what colors they come in. When I seen they came in blue, I knew that was the color I wanted to use. Then I picked two colors that would look good with blue for the little frames I made. You will want to win this challenge so you can win the prize Delicious Doodles is giving. 
The Winner Will Receive
4 Digi's From The
Delicious Doodles Store
Now I'm excited to show you the layout that I made with this hydrangea and butterfly frame with the picture of my mom.

I hope you like my layout. It is done in traditional style scrapbooking then digital. I like digital but I like that I can make my own things to add to my page. Delicious Doodles made a beautiful frame and the hydrangea is absolutely beautiful. The flower in the upper left hand corner was a flower that I made by hand. A lovely woman named Edwina did a tutorial on making flowers and this is where I learned to make these kind of flowers. Thank You Edwina. Now, here is the list of the products I used to make this layout.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- The Paper Studio
Handmade Flower -- Butterfly Ribbon from Ribbon Trims
Blue Ribbon from Ribbon FX
Butterfly Embellishments -- K & C Company
Font -- Script MT Bold
Picture -- Taken By My Daughter
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

Well I hope you enjoyed the layout and my post today. Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog is where you need to go to put your project in. Just remember that you need to have a frame around a poem, picture or quote. I wish you a wonderful Sunday and a great week.

Good Morning Everyone!! Hope you are all having a wonderful week. This has been a great one hear. That's kind of funny to say because we usually have the most drama that I know. My oldest son has a new job. He has wanted to work for this company for months and they finally hired him. He was happy to tell his boss Goodbye. He is an electric line man. My other son went from part-time to full-time construction worker. Finally, my daughter made the soccer team. Tryouts were Monday through Wednesday and they called Wednesday after the last tryout and gave her the news. Then they tell us that she will be in the soccer preview on Saturday. These kids haven't played before but it was just a preview. They didn't win the two games but they never played together yet. After a couple of practices they will all mesh. I also found out that there is a lot more running to practices and games. Seeing her happy makes it all worth while.

Our sponsor this week is Wings & Willows. This is an etsy store where they sell their images. I love the animals they have created. The image that I was lucky to work with is called Follow Your Dreams. It's a hot air balloon with three little animals in the basket. I called mine "Sending You Well Wishes." We are to use a lot of layers for our cards. I did mine a little different. Hope you will all like it. Now Wings & Willows are giving out a great prize for the winner of this challenge.

Now I'm excited. You get to see the layers on my card. Look at the balloon because there are some layers on it.

Some of the squares on the balloon are popped up in different places. I know it's kind of hard to see but I hope you can. I colored the bottom, colored another one, then put the one on top with a pop up sticker. Here are the other items that I used to make this card.
Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- DCWV
Title -- Made with Word-Art
Colored Pencils
Colored Markers
It didn't take many items to make this but it is cute. Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog is the place to go to add your card for the lots of layers. You will also see the other designers cards on there to. Well, I hope you all have a good week and come back next Sunday for the next challenge.

Hello Everyone!! Welcome to this Sunday's challenge post. I can honestly say that I am sitting in weather that feels like September. Here it has been in the very low 80's or high 70's for a whole week. I have had no air conditioning on at all this week. Just open windows and the nice breeze flowing in. It feels like September but those kids just are not in school. My daughter has 17 days left of summer vacation. Mama counting down. I love spending time with her but you just need a break here and there. We will just have our special weekends again. I have two sons but when they get over 20, forget about spending a lot of time with them. They have their own lives to live. Just miss that time with them.
Robyn's Fetish is our great sponsor this week. She has sponsored a lot of these challenges and has the greatest images to work with. I always love when she comes out with new ones. I always want to get them and work with them. This week we get to play with charms with our images. I chose the image called "Scarecrow and The Bird." This is the most adorable scarecrow to work with. You can make many different type of cards with this image. I need to tell you what the prize is this week.
3 Images
Of The Winner's Choice
Now let me show you the card that I made with this image. I called the card Pumpkin Patch.
Well I hope you found my scarecrow cute. I fell in love with him. My biggest fan is trying to get it from me. If my daughter could have any, she would probably take them all. I wanted to let you know that if you can't see the sign, It says Pumpkin Patch on it. Let me tell you the products that I used for this card.
Cardstock -- Close To My Heart & Core-dinations
Paper -- Colorbok
Buttons, Sign, & Scarecrow -- Dress It Up

I'm at the end of my post so I will have to say so long until next time. Remember to go to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to add your card with a charm. I'm sure they will be charming. LOL Have a Wonderful Sunday and a Fantastic Week
