So Dapper :)

Hi everyone :)

I wanted to share some layouts I made for some challenges :) 

The first one is for Chic Tags :)  Their challenge was to use arrows ... I used some Pink Paislee Portfolio collection along with some Chic Tags :) 

This is Adam when he was three :)  How stinkin' adorable is he?!?!!? :) 









The next one is for Let's Get Sketchy :)  I had my Pink Paislee still out after finishing the first one, so I continued using some on this layout :)  I used up some older goodies on here including the 'enchanting,' captivating.' and 'portfolio' collections :)




This was a trip to San Diego back in 2006 -- Adam, my BFF Dani, her daughter Amanda and our friend's son Christian hanging out at the San Diego Zoo :) 







 Here is Let's Get Sketchy's sketch by the fabulous Ashley :) 






And the next challenge I played along with was Lily Bee's sketch with a theme of Moms & Mommihood!! :)


I used some Lily Bee stickers and papers from the 'Handmade' collection :)






These photos were taken on Adam's 7th birthday when I happened to have the day off work to chaperone a trip to the zoo with his school :) I saved the little name tag that he wore on the field trip and used it on my page :) 




And here is Lily Bee's sketch :)





And the last challenge I played along with is Color Me Scrappy :)  Here is their color scheme :)



And their twist was to use mist or paint :)


Here is my layout :)



I used up some Echo Park 'For the Record 2' collection on this one :)







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