sassy lil' sketches stuff

just a couple of layouts and a card, all using sassy lil' sketches...

shared parties using the june 28th sketch. nice hair, huh? still bitter about that. lol i have really curly hair and my mom, having three daughters 7 and under, decided to take care of the problem of me crying when she combed out the tangles... -sigh- okay. whine over. :)
hi using the june 14th card sketch...

look using the sketch from the design team call... my niece, showing off her whistling skills. my daughter's jealous. she still can't whistle worth a crap. heehee.
looking at the card and the 'look' layout, i think i'm liking green these days...

thanks for checking out my little blog!

my heart to you is given...

this is for our bedroom... the photo was taken fifteen years ago, before we had our daughter. i found this quote when i was looking for a quote for haley's card.

i based this on a sketch from sassy lil sketches... the june 7th one.

it's momentous...

so, my daughter is on vacation right now, with her grandparents. i'm missing her... working on this layout - thinking about sam, i'm in a bittersweet kind of mood. i miss the baby that she was, but i'm so proud of the young woman she's becoming.

*untitled* based on the june 2010 sketch over at scrapfreak. i've had this picture floating around, and finally scrapped it. the quote was perfect, especially for the mood i'm in. i'm a little geeked out to have her so far away (she's in california, then washington) but she'll be back next week...

make a wish
this layout is based on sketch #126 (i think) over at sketch inspirations. i love this picture of my sisters' girls. they're pretty close, and i think the photo captured that.

thanks for looking!

one fine day...

one fine day this was from the challenge blog i design for - Who's That Girl... the prompt (taken from the blog) I find that my goals for myself and my life change over time. What I dream of most right now might seem less important one day, or perhaps I will have accomplished those goals and now have new ones. For this challenge, document your goals or dreams for yourself! Whether you accomplish them all or not, it can be interesting to look back one day and see what your goals were in that moment in time.
i showed this layout to the husband... maybe give him some ideas. :)

3 lil cousins this one's based on sketch #125 from Sketch Inspirations.

i'm liking the layered title here
obsessed my goofy dog.
i followed the may sketch from scrapfreak for this one

hope you're all enjoying your summer so far... i am ;)
