Cheerios -- Recipe Challenge

Today at FROSTED DESIGNS our Fabulous Friday challenge is a recipe....

3 diff PP's, 2 buttons & 1 word title...

Here's my layout ... I pulled a really old photo of Joseph...  and I pulled a Cheerios box out of the pantry...  For my 3 pieces of PP, I know it looks like more, but the little circles are the "flip side" of what I punched out of the larger circles.

Blog Hop Winner & some more layouts!!

So..the Memorable Seasons Sketch-a-thon continues and here are some more layouts:

And our Frosted Designs Blog hop over the weekend was fun!!  Blogger is apparently having a problem and some gals couldn't comment on my blog (and some other's too)...and I'm having trouble commenting on some blogs I'm just blaming it on Blogger.  So anyway...instead of only taking those who commented, I also threw in everyone that became a follower.  And I chose my winner...and I went to her blog but can't find an eamil address to contact hope she comes by and sees this..... or if you know her...please send her my way!!! ---  My winner is ME-MA-KIM!!   Email me your snail mail and I'll get a little something in the mail to you!

Welcome to the Frosted Designs Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the FROSTED DESIGNS blog hop!!!

Two ways to win the big prize at Frosted Designs --

1. As you travel around the blogs, collect the words to make a complete phrase...
And email that phrase to by midnight Sunday. (Subject Line should say "Blog Hop")

2. Link your LO to the Frosted Design Blog by Midnight Sunday.

This weeks Fabulous Friday challenge is to use Acrylic, Tranparancy or Vellum..
I used all 3 on this layout!!

Please become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment and answer this question...(Yes, that way I know you actually read!!)..  Because of my layout about "checking in on my son at bedtime"... here's my question:  If you had kids, did you still check them every night to see if they were breathing.?  Until they were how old?...If you don't have kids, tell me if I'm crazy to still be doing this at age 8...??
......I'll send a little RAK to someone at the end of the blog hop..!!     I'll try to contact the winner, but you can check back with me on Tuesday 2/24 and I'll post the winners name here too. 

Oh...and the word you need from me is   HOME  --- and after me, you should head over to MARTINA's BLOG next...

Below is the order of the hop in case you get lost along the way...

Panorama Sedona today it's the week for a 2 page sketch at SKETCHES IN THYME.... seriously ... this sketch has TONS of room for interpretation!!!
And I gotta be honest...I've been trying to figure out how to use these 5 pictures that I took as I moved left to right of the Sedona view.... this sketch was perfect and I'm thrilled with how this turned out!!!
(so thrilled that I'm going to put it up for the SNR mag for this one will be published!!)

And come back on Friday ... Frosted Designs is having a blog hop!!!

Memorable Seasons Sketch-a-Thon

We're having a sketch-a-thon over at MEMORABLE SEASONS

And we have a sketch each before i get too far behind, I thought I'd better post the last few from over there...  So far I've done every sketch (which is nice since I'm on the DT, I get to see them ahead of time)....

In the interest of space and time, I will not show the sketches...but just my projects....

The first two are using my DT kit featuring Little Yellow Bicycle's Winter Twig Line...
