Fun stuff this week!!

This weeks' challenge at FROSTED DESIGNS is to make your own embellishments... 
ok, so not my fave thing to do... but here's what I came up with...

I created this canvas with a dress pattern and mists.... then used a punch to punch flower shapes from the dress pattern tissue paper and layered them and misted them to make these nice grungy boy flowers!!

And this week at SKETCHES IN THYME we have this fun 2 page sketch:
and here's the layout I created from it...

and...over at MEMORABLE SEASONS we are having our annual Last Scrapper Standing contest...
Here are some layouts I've made this month that have posted over there...
I got American Crafts Amy Tan Sketchbook for my June DT kit...



and here is one using last years Amy Tan line...
This was using bubble wrap as a stamp...

Punching it at Frosted Designs

This post is it's posting, I'm probably leaving CA for the drive home...
EDIT:  Well, since 6/1/2012 at 8am has come and gone and blogger did NOT post this...I'm having to do it manually?....what the heck is that about???

So today at FROSTED DESIGNS our challenge is PUNCHES...

So I used several border punches on the bottom of this layout and a circle punch for the circles by the title...
and a border punch at the top (backed in orange) and then i used the punched part along the left edge too (no waste for me!!)

And this layout & cards using Amy Tan Sketchbook postd at Memorable Seasons today too..
