Color Me Scrappy

Color Me Scrappy is up with a new challenge. This time around we were given this beautiful pallette to work with:

Pretty, right? Well, I knew I wanted to work with a picture of my little boy, and I was a bit worried that it would come off a little "girly"

I grunged it up a bit with ink, and distressing the "jeans" type paper I used to mat the picture.

There are a few feminine elements, but overall, I think it works. And with such a cute subject, how could I go wrong? (yeah, I am THAT parent) LOL

Check out the fun ladies over at Color Me Scrappy. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Mother's Day Inspiration

Holy cow! It is May already. Anyone else feel like time is flying by?! 

During this busy month we celebrate my mommy's birthday, my mother-in-law's birthday and of course Mother's Day. I was inspired by the talented Marcy Penner on the October Afternoon blog to make these fun "Accordian fold" cards for my 2 favorite ladies this year. I know they will love them because they feature the most beautiful, smart and talented kids in the world. (ok, we may be a bit biased! lol)

Over at the Color Me Scrappy blog, they have a new challenge up. I thought their color scheme was beautiful, which is what led me to these papers. I threw in some pink, and I am really happy with how it turned out. 

I am going to drop these in the mail today!

I am so grateful for all the wonderful inspiration that is out there. Have a blessed day and go make something pretty!
