Fifteen Minutes

Hope every one had a great Thanksgiving week. We sure did and this was our first one with no turkey. That is right, we skipped the big bird and opted for two organic chickens. The reason is for this is because of this article. So now my family only eats organic chicken. Plus, this year we didn't do can pumpkin. I processed eight organic pie pumpkins last month and froze it. The pie and cheesecake came out great and I think it has a better taste than the can.
Anyways, before Thanksgiving we had a birthday party for my dad on Sunday. I ended up creating a great guy card in just 15 minutes for him.

Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Studio Calico), color mediums (Tattered Angels), stamp (Deep Red Rubber and Peachy Keen Stamps), ink (Stampabilities), journaling card (Project Life), chipboard (Um Wow Studio and My Mind's Eye) and enamel dot (My Mind's Eye)

I am linking this up to Crafty Steals monthly challenge.
Thanks for stopping by.

Having Fun... - Child's Play Challenges

Hot Wheels is the inspiration toy for the second challenge at Child's Play Challenges. When my brother and I were little you hardly ever saw a hot wheel car in our home, the only time you did was if it came in a happy meal. However, this challenge was an easy one for me because we did have pinewood derby car. I love those races at church. My brother got trophies and I got participating ribbons. 

Supplies: cardstock (American Crafts and The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Crate Paper), chipboard (Crate Paper and Um Wow Stdio)), twine (Timeless Twine), journaling card (Project Life) brads (My Mind's Eye and Basic Grey), Stickers (Heidi Swapp, American Crafts and Studio Calico), mist (Tattered Angels), inl (Stampabilities), stamps (Paper Bakery), washi tape (Scotch), pen (Project Life) and diy enamel dots.

I like mixing different fonts for titles. It adds so much more interest . 
 That little orange brad is from a My Min's Eye Halloween collection.
 I love doing hidden journaling. Adding stamps and an arrow just to show that there is hidden journaling. I am one who would forget.
 Here is the journaling. It is not much but I felt with all the different patterns on this layout I couldn't do the journaling on the page without it getting lost.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check the full reveal over at CPC

A Spotted Dog - Child's Play Challenges

The current challenge over at Child's Play Challenges has been revealed and I have to tell you it is a good one. We teamed up with Pixels and Paper for this challenge. 
This week's photo comes is courtesy of Pixels and Paper. Seeing that this is a special event, Child's Play decided to add a recipe challenge to the mix.
something older than 1 year
3 patterned papers
Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Stdio)pattern paper (Echo Park and My Mind's Eye), doily (The Paper Studio), brad (Bo Bunny), chipboard (Scenic Route), stickers (American Crafts, Studio Calico and My Mind's Eye) and pen (Project Life)
   Here is how I was inspired by these challenges. 
Gold: doily
Animal: Dog in the photo
Older than 1 yr: Chipboard frame (That is super old. I got it in a mystery bag from Scenic Route a couple of years before they closed).
3 patterned papers Yup, that is all  used.
Bling: the big brad
The photo inspired me to go with antique looking photos.
   This page is a little fancier than what I normally do for a layout of Buster but I couldn't help it one this page. I blame the gold doily I used. Something about them that make me go a little fancy.
