Inspired by....

Oh, I was so very inspired to create a card and play along over at Inspired by this week.....Here is the fabulous photo inspiration. A chalkboard....how appropriate for me this week! We begin our state assessments and I loved this challenge. 
 I chose to use some leftovers from my last layout to create a card for my teaching partner. I have been so blessed to have her as my partner and my friend! She is truly the best. I will give her this card and some yummy stress relieving chocolates on our first day of testing!
Recipe: scraps of For Always papers, some Honey scraps and that black "chalkboard" is a scrap also. I used some bitty pearls and the ever wonderful Artiste cartridge to create my roses. Just wrote my sentiment with a white jelly roll pen.

Journal

This morning, I am sharing a little journal I made for one of my students. She just lost her Greatgradma. The two were very close. My little girl is such a writer and keeps a journal. I made this as a token for her to record her memories, thoughts, or her healing process. 
Recipe: papers-gcd, bling-Prima, flower-Recollections, ribbon stash, and the ink is Gypsy-CTMH

Us...

It is Sunday and that means we have a new challenge up at Lasting Memories....This week we want to see   your take on "Season's Change". I pulled out some photos that Ben and I took 3 years ago at Easter. We took a spring hike in for one mile to see the Beautiful Bad Branch Falls, located here in our home town. This was a fabulous spring day for us! 
Recipe: papers-Sassafras Lass, felt-stash, ink-CTMH
I can't wait to see how you interpret the season's change challenge this week!

My Day.....

 I have had such a busy week at school this week preparing for state assessments, that I didn't have any time to create at all.... :(  Stressful week.... So this morning, I got right to it and already feel some relaxation setting in! I created this layout of my beautiful Megan's wedding album. I challenged myself to use the card sketch from my last post to do a layout. Love how it came out. 
 I used some of the new For Always fabrics and rolled these flowers. Oh, there are so many ways to create using that wonderful fabric.
Recipe: All papers and fabrics are For Always, black ink, bling-Prima, Thickers alphas, and I used the Elegant Edges cartridge for the cuts.

Good Morning! Our challenge this week at Lasting Memories is to be inspired by a quote. Still rather inspired from last week's challenge, I pulled out some old stash and created this...
I was inspired to create this layout based upon the quote, "It doesn't get any better than this". I adore these Stella papers and canvas stickers. What quote will inspire you? Is it a favorite of yours, or will you be inspired by shopping through your stash, as I was? Can't wait to see what you come up with! 
Recipe: Stella papers, Lagoon and Chocolate ink, Stella canvas stickers, antique copper brads, Just for You stamps--CTMH, buttons-stash, and white pen.

Believe in yourself....

Oh yay...I got a chance to finally play along with my scrappy girl, Laurel's challenge, Inspired By. Her inspiration this week is this this photo, full of blue in honor of Autism.....
 I was really drawn to the less noticed color in this photo, the beige of the rug and the side table. So, I came up with this...
I used some old stuff on this one and some new CTMH goodies too. The blue is Moonstruck with matching ink. The beige is our Champagne. I ran it through the cuttlebug, then sanded it to expose the white. Then, I used my distressing sponge and lightly dabbed some of the blue ink on the swirls just randomly. I stamped the frame using the new Perfect fit frame from CTMH and cut it out with the Artiste cart. The little sentiment stamp is also retied, but I love it. It is from the Be Happy set. It is stamped in Champagne also. I finished it off with some blue ribbon from my stash and 2 bitty pearls.
