Big Bird in Las Vegas? :)

Hi everyone!!

Wanted to share two layouts I made over the weekend for some sketch challenges :)

The first one is for Bo Bunny's latest sketch challenge ... and I am SUPER excited that I got the NEW Mama-Razzi 2 collection from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com!!! Mama-Razzi {1} was my all time FAVE Bo Bunny collection EVER... and I was SO HAPPY to see that they have brought it back with a twist!! I just loveeeeeee the new Mama-Razzi 2 collection!! My new FAVE!! :)




Have I told you lately HOW MUCH I am IN LOVE with the new sewing machine hubby and my in-laws bought me for Christmas?!?!?? I loveeeeeeeee all the awesome stitches I can do on my pages now ... I am loving the arrows I made on this page!! :)






Brian and I went to Las Vegas for my 40th birthday and we went to where the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign is .... and there was Big Bird just hanging out taking pictures with people!! Totally cracked us up!! :)




Here is Bo Bunny's sketch that Juliana Michaels created :)



And the next layout I wanted to share was for Artful Delight's latest sketch :)

Debbie Burns created their sketch this month! :)



I used a lot of my scraps and leftovers from the Artful Delight December kit :)




And here is Artful Delight's sketch :)




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