DCWV July Stackaholic Challenge Top 15!

I am so excited to share that a layout I made, which I entered into the DCWV July Stackaholic Challenge was chosen as one of the Top 15!  I made a layout celebrating our 31st wedding anniversary and I used a wedding picture for the layout.  I used DCWV's Primrose and Le Tres Chic stacks to complete my project.  I hope you like it! 


Challenge #71 at Lia Stampz using Crowns for a theme

It's time for another challenge at Lia Stampz.  This one is using images with a crown or using a crown in some fashion on your project.  I chose to use "Birthday Princess" for my card.  This image can be found at Whimsy Stamps along with all of Lia's wonderful digis.  Have a browse through, I think you'll be amazed at just how many images she has for sale, all at very reasonable prices!

Challenge #70 Colour Challenge at Lia Stampz

Holy cow we're into the beginning of August!  I just can't believe how quickly this summer is going by.  I've been so busy this summer with so many things.  I've tried to start a garden here at the new house.  Just a few perennials were put in along with some annuals.  Nothing too grand but just large enough that there is some work involved.  We're still peeling wallpaper off in the kitchen and I swear this nightmare is never going to end.  We've also started painting the kitchen.  We still have so many rooms left to do that have wallpaper!  I finally managed to get a pile of mini albums done, more about that in another post complete with pics! 

So here's another challenge from Lia Stampz!  This one is a colour challenge and I'm not sure why but this challenge was a difficult one for me.  I spent the entire day and ended up making 4 things for this challenge because I wasn't happy with anything that I made.  I ended up sending 2 to Lia and telling her to just pick because I couldn't decide.  Lia decided to use both!  Maybe they weren't so bad after all?  You be the judge.  Does that ever happen to you, where you make stuff and you're not happy with any of it? 

I've used the digis called Flowercup and Birthday Girl.  They can both be found at Whimsy Stamps where you'll find a whole variety of wonderful stamps from Lia Stampz! 

If you would like to join us for the colour challenge you still have time.  Here's a link to the challenge.
