It's Banner Time!

Good morning friends!
Can you believe it is almost Easter time? It is one of my favorite times of the year. So much cute bunny and chick stuff out there and not to mention all the yummy chocolate!!
But the real reason I love Easter is because my Lord, HE LIVES!! I get so excited just thinking about it, He died for me that I might live. How exciting!!!
This week at LSHD we are having a banner challenge. Yep, something new and exciting.  I had a little difficulty with mine because I've had Spring fever. We've had amazing weather these last two weeks. Just wanted to spend it all outside! LOL.
Remember to drop by the design team blog or post your entry on Facebook. You could win $20 in free patterns.
Here is my banner: I used the Eggs for Roo file.
I hung it on my wreath on my front door...it took 2 days for the kids to realize it was there. LOL.
Thanks for dropping in today. I enjoy your visits so much.
Blessings.

Another Sketch Challenge for LSHD!!

This weeks challenge is a new Layout Sketch Challenge.
                                                      Create a layout (or 2) using this sketch:



Add your favorite LSHD paper piecing
and your entry is ready for this week's Layout Sketch Challenge.
 
So, without further wait...here is my take of the sketch challenge.
 
I used the My Hero Bear set. My son had a spider man birthday last year and I thought this would be a perfect page for one of his photos. He really is my hero. He suffers from bi-polar and adhd and sometimes the kid is impossible to deal with. I admire how he doesn't let it get him down no matter how much trouble he gets into. There is always a smile and hugs afterward.
My Hero---Steven.
 
Thanks for looking and stopping by.
Blessings.

Did I mention I LOVE the color GREEN?

I LOVE the color GREEN!!

I love to be challenged with sketches or color themes. Little Scraps of Heaven is having a sketch challenge this week. 
Create a card using this sketch:


Add your favorite LSHD paper piecing
and your entry is ready for this week's Card Sketch Challenge.
 
With St. Patricks day just around the corner I decided to use a freebie that Tricia posted. It's the clover bear on the sketch challenge.  
I knew when I saw it that I had to use all GREEN! Green is just an awesome color and is so spring.
 The sentiment says...It's the little things in life that matter the most!
Take some time today and reflect on the little things in life. It might just surprise you how you've been blessed.

Have a fantastic day!!!
Blessings.

Friends Forever

Friends Forever

Hello friends. I just posted the sketch challenge over at LSHD for you to see. Now I want to show you my version. Good thing about sketches is, it's just an example of how it could be. Everyone can put their own twist to it. Know what I mean?

I used the Dear Diary girls from LSHD. Paper is from a DCWV stack and the sentiment is Susan Branch's Girlfriends.
Isn't it wonderful to have girlfriends to spend time with? I have a lot of friends but I have one "BEST" girlfriend that I do everything with.
So, this layout is dedicated to all the best friends out there. My best friend and I each have a kindle fire and we are always content to spend time together just reading or searching out apps.


 Thanks for dropping in today. I really appreciate your time.
Blessings.
