Sketches Galore!!

Continuing to have time to scrap just for me, I decided to do some more challenges just for fun, so I have 2 layouts to share today :)

First up is "Boat Sailing", using Echo Park pp. I mixed 2 collections - Sweet Summertime and Little Boy. They actually go together pretty well. This one I did for the sketch challenge over at Sketchy Thursdays, and this new sketch just went live yesterday - it's a fun one! The chipboard flowers are so cute and are by Scrapmatts, of course ;)

The second LO is for the March sketch challenge posted on My Little Shoebox blog. It was a great one for using up scraps, and perfect for me since I've been having way too much fun with this pp and I only had little scraps left LOL

In other news, I was super happy to get a huge DT box from Scrapstreet today. In it was the Emma's Shoppe Crate Paper collection I ordered, along with the layered chipboard and trim. Also, Pink Paislee sponsored the team and let me tell you...they were so nice and super generous! I got the Hometown Summer collection, with the entire pack of 24 sheets, as well as the stamps, the sticker die cut borders, the baubles, the punch outs, and a white Chishies Expressions alphabet. Super excited to work with that, very cute paper by none other than Collage Press, recently turned Collage Press Studios.

Also I took the kids to the playground since it was so nice and warm, and then we went to Friendly's and I totally scored when Morgan didn't eat much of her Monster Mash ice cream (yep, that's the mint chocolate chip one!) and I got to eat it. And then we went to a different playground. So I'll leave you with a couple pics from today.
