Summertime and ... Mid-60s??

Well, by looking at the weather around my parts, you wouldn't know it was summertime, but the fact that we all (well, almost all) were able to sleep in the last two days tells me for sure summer is here! So happy to do the things I've been longing to do for what seems like months. Crazy thing is, that list is starting to feel like it might take longer to tackle than the school year itself! Oh well, we can choose what we want to do, and work hard to not be bothered by things we didn't get to. :)

My latest creation is up on the Punky Sprouts blog. I tried to post it when it went up last Thursday, but something was going on with our internet. Then the next several days were somewhat of a blur. You know how that goes... This month we are spotlighting the new denim embellishments. They went beautifully with the Pink Paislee Indigo Bleu I got with our last product swap.

 These pics of J look so funny! He's always had such a great sense of humor, but this was extra silly as he was just figuring out the whole "funny face" thing. You might notice the faces don't look quite natural!

I also love using the Punky Stems, especially when I have a project (and the time) to do some stitching as well.

Lastly, I used the Punky Petals (in denim) and some Punky Seeds to finish it off.

Hope you'll check out the Punky Blog to see the other fabulous creations from the team. Shelly also has a new page up where you can purchase Punky Sprouts product directly. I know many of you out there have been trying to get your hands on some of this yumminess, so here's your chance!

So, now that I've updated my blog, I'm needing to take care of a few other scrappy-related details before moving on to other things this week. Not sure how much time that will take, but hey, at least I have the time! I'm planning on staying out of my classroom for at least a month, and if I can manage it, maybe not go in til August! (We'll see how that all works out!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Punky Challenge!

Have you been to the Punky Sprouts blog yet this month? You need to get over there because this month's challenge is up, and it is brought to you by ME, of course! You'll need to go over there to take a peek at the actual challenge, but you could win some wonderful goodies! 

Here's my sample for the challenge:

Patterned paper: WeRMemory Keepers, (from May PersonalScrapper.com kit)
Alphas: American Crafts
From Punky Sprouts: Punky Playground, Parchment Blossoms, Lil' Lacey Blossoms

I am SO happy with this layout! If you have ever scrapped with me then you know what a S-L-O-W scrapper I am. I mean, really slow! I sit and start get myself all worked up about whether or not the shades match exactly, and silly stuff like that... This time, I put everything aside, I mean, truly everything. and just scrapped. What a freeing feeling!

I also just love this pic of my girly. I think this was just after a soccer game this past spring out at the school field by our house. After games, both J and A love to go play on the toys for a bit. So fun to just watch them hang out!

I have another Punky layout I'll post in a few days, but it showcases the new denim embellishments paired width more Pink Paislee. GORGEOUS!  

Also, Erica is having an amazing celebration over at PersonalScrapper.com. This month she sent out her 100th kit! No other company has made it to such an incredible milestone! You really do need to go check out her kits, because they are really the best around! Fabulous, current product for a steal of a price! She has a challenge every day on the forum too. Hope you can come join us for it!

Thanks for stopping by!
