Ice Cream Dream June Stamp of the Month

This stamp set is the Stamp of the Month for June and is perfect for summer !!!! Here is a link to the blog hop featuring great ideas using this set.

For this layout I used Ruby, Canary, and Juniper Cardstock and ink.  This is a picture of my nephew when I was teaching him to drive.  One of the lessons I wanted him to learn is to CHILL or stay SMOOTH!!!  So after many a lessons we would stop for SMOOTHIES or Ice Cream to help the lesson to stick.  The colors happen to be the colors used for the Color My Heart Color Dare!!!  Plus this layout is for the Tutti-Frutti  Challenge for Heart to Heart since the smoothies and Ice Cream where often Tutti-Frutti flavors !!!!!

Confirmation Cards - Mum shoulodn't be the word!!!

This year I had the honor of being prayer partners for a beautiful, dynamic young lady.  My sister and I made cards and prayed for this young lady as she prepared to take the next BIG step of faith.  Claiming the faith that her family has raised her in and making it her own!  But the whole things was a secret until before her 1st Communion.  So we had to swear all the kids to secrecy and try not to make eye contact with her and her family too much.  So that is why I think this card works for the challenge at H2H Mums the word.  It was tricky to keep it all a secret until the right time.  This card I made using Thistle cardstock and inks as well as the Celebrate B&T paper pack.

Just FOOLING around

This month over at Heart 2 Heart the scrap challenge was Fool.  Ya know April Fool's ha ha.  But seriously or not so seriously I chose to use a Studio J layout of us just FOOLing around.  I grew up playing tons of games with my family and have tried to pass on that love to my boy.  This layout highlights the quick and easy Studio J layouts you just drag and drop your pictures into the layout after you choose a paper pack a Viola!!!! I love to use Studio J when my scrapping is a little behind or I'm just crunched for time.
