I'mmmm backk... with a layout or two =)

I've got a blog giveaway HERE. Check it out for a chance to win a cute Sizzix die. =)
Happy Saturday....

Well, I was on a really bad dry spell.. i think my crafty mojo made a brief reappearance last night. I tried to go to my LSS to crop after work, but they didn't have room for me on such short notice, so I stayed home in my scrap dungeon. probably was a good thing. I had all my tools and resources, which helps with the inspiration I think..=)
First up, is a layout of my cousin and her husband. The inspiration for this layout was from a sketch at Sketch Inspiration, #223. 
I dug deep into my stash and used some older Kelly Panacci paper  from a line called His and Hers as the base, PP tissue papers, maya mist, some Bobunny white chipboard that I Zingged with the color Butter, and a Glitz rubon and stickers. a little medley of goodies.

and then, since I was on a roll... lol.. I started on another layout with my latest scrappy purchase.. a kit from NOEL MIGNON called Bees Knees. it is so awesome. lots of fun papers and embellies.. this is my first kit from Noel and I love it!!!! =)

I used a sketch from Sassy Lil Sketches as inspiration... and the first sheet of paper I picked out of the kit was this beautiful piece from the new Sassafras line.. isn't it awesome?? I then dug into my Studio Calico stamps and used a "summer" stamp and my "cloud" stamp, which matches my cloud punches perfectly... I stamped the summer image with 4 different Jenni Bowlin inks. I think the colors worked perfect on the paper.. and the rest of the embellies were from the kit except the puffie, and the Making Memories popsicle stick adhered with the Lime Twist twine.
the picture is of my great niece at our family reunion last year when she was in charge of a game and had the whistle. let's just say that whistle was well loved. lol. =)

I hope I didn't use up my mojo... i have to get to work on some layouts for Scrapbookers Anonymous. Don't forget to hop over and check out June's challenge.

Thanks for visiting and I will be back soon...
