Mojo Monday It's Your Day!

I was feeling tropical again for this Mojo Monday challenge. I think the summer just does that to you, especially after such a fun weekend celebrating my daughter's 4th birthday. The summer is already flying by. I sometimes wish I could press pause for a minute!

From 3 to 4

My sweet little girl Ava turned 4 July 7th. In honor of her birthday and her party this weekend I made her a page layout for the wall and her album. I really want to do a special page in honor of the birthday boy or girl when it's their big day. I may even do it for my husband when his day comes. I was really happy with how it came out although it seemed to take me forever today as I wanted it to be just right! I am also entering this into Emma's "throwback Thursday" challenge as this week's theme is to make a Birthday themed project.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Stampin UP! Jumble Alphabet, Well Scripted, Perfect Princess (retired)
Ink: Stampin UP! Elegant Eggplant
Paper: so much paper! email me if you want specifics
Cricut Once Upon a Princess, Sweet Treats, and Lyrical Letters
Circle and Scallop Circle Punch

More fun MDS pages

I got a chance to "try" to catch up on some scrapbooking the other day using Stampin UP!'s digital software, My Digital Studio. I just love this software. I have created so many cute projects with it just using the page templates that come with it. Here are a few that I created the other day. I just loved these photos so I turned them into black and white and used the Christmas Jingle template for my pages.

Mojo Monday Motorcycle Card

A few months ago I bought a Motorcycle stamp from Stampin UP! thinking it would be a great stamp for a Father's Day card for my dad and for any others out there that I make cards for that are into motorcycles. I finally got around to using it for his birthday card. I used the Mojo Monday challenge this week to get my creative juices flowing for an idea of a card layout and this is what I came up with. I felt it was perfect for him and the colors came out great! Sometimes guy cards can be so hard to tackle!

Leaping Lizards!

A few years ago my husband and I took a vacation sans kids to St. Thomas. I recently did the pages from the trip. Here are a few that I did using the Tropical Party stamp set from Stampin UP! I thought the title for the lizards page was very original, I got the idea from a scrapbooking site as I could not think of anything to put for a page full of lizards!

This last page was of the views from our last night on the island and our amazing dinner!
Supplies used:
Stamps: Stampin UP! Tropical Party
Paper: Stampin UP! Pumpkin Pie, Saraha Sand, Tempting Turquoise, Island Oasis DSP
Ink: Stamin UP! Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, and Rose Red

All the titles I cut out on my cricut this time along with the little lizard
