Scrapbook Challenges sketch 259

Hi everyone!  It's sooo hot here in Chicagoland.  Lately, all I can do is stay inside and enjoy some air conditioning!  Today I took my son to the mall to play which is normally something I do in the winter, oh well he enjoyed it and loved riding on the choo choo train!  I did get a little time to scrapbook today and here is what I came up with.
This is a double page layout based on the current sketch over at Scrapbook Challenges.  
 Based on this sketch...
I stamped out my title, I love doing this!

Ink: Stampin UP! Elegant Eggplant, Glorious Green, and Basic Gray
Paper: Stampin UP! So Saffron, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, and DCWV Blossoms and Butterflys

2011 July Calendar Page

Hi everyone!!  I know I haven't shared in a while but summer has just really gotten the best of me lately!  I have been having so much fun with the kids and just kind of taking a break from everything.  Anyway, I wanted to show off this cool calendar page I made for July.  If you have been following my blog then you know that I keep one of these on the fridge each month and decorate it according to whatever is going on.  I really love red, white, and blue and this stamp set from Stampin UP! I got last year called July Fourth.  It is perfect for all  my fourth of July layouts!  I even made my own firecracker out of ribbon.  I love how it came out!


Supplies Used: 
Stamps: Stampin UP! July Fourth
Paper: Stampin UP! Real Red, Not quite Navy, Whisper White, and Crumb Cake
Ink: Stampin UP! Real Red, Not Quite Navy and Versamark
Ribbon is just ribbon I had in my bins, along with a button I got from Joann
Cricut Cartridge Designer Calendar and the Star Punches from Stampin UP!

I've decided to enter this into the linking party over at You Had me At Craft:-)
