My 3 and My baby...and SO EXCITED!!!! :):):)

Hi everyone! :):):)

Today starts the latest challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous! :):):):):):)  Here is our challenge this time, "Pull out those mini 6x6 and/or 8x8 pads you have been collecting and use at least 3 different sheets of it on your layout!" :):):):):):):)  So for my layout, I used Nikki Sivils 12x12 and 6x6 sheets of her "Will He Be the 1?" collection :):):):):):):)

Here is my take on the challenge :)






And the second part of our challenge that is new to Scrapbooker's Anonymous is to make a card from the scraps left over from the layout you made! :):):):):):):):)  Here is my card I made for my BFF for this challenge :)




And its also time for Nikki Sivils latest challenge on her blog :):):):) Since many of Nikki's papers are based on animals, we want to see your projects (using Nikki's papers) that have to do with animals, your kids acting like animals (LOL!), a card made with one of Nikki's little critters, anyway you interpret the challenge around animals :):):):):):):):):)

Here is my take on the challenge.. I did my layout using the Beatrice collection and all about my baby... Mr. Dandy :):):):):):):)







And speaking of Mr. Dandy :)  Brookie made him a picture the other day....awwww :)



And speaking of Nikki Sivils... she recently got a partnership going with PROVO CRAFT... and they were so generous with Nikki's DT...they sent us each a CRICUT!!! OMYGOSH!! Soooooo AWESOME!!!!! I got the Cricut Expression with some cartridges!!!! EEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!! Thanks Nikki and Provo Craft!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)




Can't wait to play with it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And STILL speaking of Nikki Sivils... she is doing a little Summer Release sneak today along with a little giveaway.... head on OVER THERE and take a look :):):):):):):):):):):):)




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)

  32. Great LO and card…I'm a scrappy girl myself (I love to make cards from scraps!)

    Thanks for taking time to leave me a comment for the Jingle Belles challenge. I enjoyed your We 3 Kings idea :)

    You will fall in love with your Cricut. I won mine, and it arrived on my doorstep last November. I didn't really get to play with it until the holiday craziness was over, and now I use it nearly every day! I *heart* Provo Craft!
