some new pages

hiiiiii!  hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.  (in the US anyway!  lol.)  just a few *okay a bunch * new pages & a card to share today!
a fairly quick on describing my littlest & using the napa valley kit from studio calico. 

i always struggle with this style of layout.  mine never look quite "right."  but i like the way it turned out okay. 

another quick one from napa valley.

this layout above and the card below were both for scrap again in june.  the product to use was burlap.  i struggled with it.  in the end, i chose to try it out on a gluber.  i like the way it turned out!  :) 

using some more rocket age.  seriously, LOVE that stuff!

and.... a peek at my layout for this week's sketch at elle's studio:

gettin' sketchy wit' it...

na na na nana na na na na na na na.... gettin' sketchy wit' it.  (that was reference to an oooold will smith song btw - for those of you aren't as old as i am.  lol.)

i am not typically a sketchy kinda person.  i don't know why.  i'm just not.  this month elle debuted sketches over  on the blog.  i did it & it went well.  so, i decided to do a couple more!  hee hee.  this one is for the sketch over at sassafras lass...

here is a peek at the one for elle's studio this week.  you can check it out on their blog on thursday may 26 & play along by doing your own version of the sketch!

and here is a sneak peek of a third layout that you will be able to see later.  very excited about this one.  i am in LOVE with the rocket age stuff from october afternoon.  (it is NOT for oa; i just love the layout!)

May Elle's Studio

a fabulous gallery this month over at elle's!  here are my projects for the month of may. :)
this pattern paper from 5 & dime was perfect for my baseball layout.  :) who would have thought?!  :)  the baseball tag from the sports vintage flashcards was just what i needed. 
also used: 

for this one, i wanted to challenge myself to use as much elle's as possible!  :)  the colors of the fun striped circle tags  were a match made in heaven for the colors in the shirt my daughter wore for the 80's school dance.
Also used: 
this paper and this paper from the "owl love you forever" line. 

 for this card, i layered the owl love you forever circle tags under a circle i cut from scrap paper with my slice to make a large flower.  The purple patter paper is actually the back of some of the packaging from an elle's studio tag set.  the the "happy birthday" tags and the candles both came from the large birthday circle journal tags. 

thanks for stopping by!  :) have a lovely weekend! (what is left of it.  lol.)
