My Tutorial Week

This was my week to provide the tutorial over at Scrap and Stamp Saturday. My tutorial explains how to create custom faux buttons to match any layout and it's easy. Find my tutorial here. Here is a preview of the buttons I created.

Here is my layout for this weeks S&S challenge, special thanks to Pamela Young for this fab sketch- she has a new one posted every week at her blog here.  I wanted a layout to capture the energy of my 21 month old and Aspen helped me to come up with the title (it's a fav song of hers right now) "My Sweet Honeybee". Gabriel is one busy little bee to be sure. Love how this one turned out, although it seems a little busy to me :) ha ha.

Another Sketch Challenge

This week at Scrap and Stamp is another sketch challenge. This sketch (see below) is a fun one full of possibilities, so take a look at the website here and give it a try. You just need to use your interpretation of the sketch and stamp somewhere on the layout.  Also this weeks sponsor just happens to be Jillibean Soup and you could win a stamp set, ribbon set and pack of sprouts.

Here is my interpretation of the sketch, I used BoBunny Peacock Lane and love these vibrant colors. Who could resist the smiles in this photo? Irresistible!

Hope to share more soon, have a fabulous weekend!
