Giveaway, Challenges & Peachy Keen !!!

Hi Everyone !!! Today (Friday) is my Birthday so I wanted to post something dear to me.....LOL One of my kids of course !!! And a Happy Birthday giveaway for you !!
I've been really trying to catch up on my kids scrapbooks these past few months... I start a new scrapbook every year on their birthday so when they leave home they will have 18 books to take with them LOL !!!
I'm so excited to be up to December of 2011. As I was scrapping, I saw this photo and it reminded me of the current photo challenge for Peachy Keen, which is of a peacock feather, and I knew this would be perfect !!! I was inspired by a layout my friend did. She pointed me in the direction of a sketch blog and I fell in Love with May's sketch !!! She got it from My Creative Sketches !!!
On this 12x12 layout.....
I used Peachy Keen Funny Flowers for the big flower with the face on it, and the cute stamped butterfly up on the banner piece! I used PK-564 Teamwork for the sentiment.

I also used a Jaded Blossom flag die, the Art Philosophy Circut cart and yummy Echo Park paper.
This is one of my favorite always reminds me of my two little girls named after flowers. In the picture is my daughter Lily and my youngest is Poppy~

So this is an entry for the My Creative Sketches and of course Peachy Keen !!

How about a Birthday giveaway ???

May the Force be with you Hop

HI Everyone !!! If you just came from Kate's cute blog then you are in the right spot!!!
If not you can start at the beginning HERE

I had seen some cute little light saber candy at a store that I was going to use. But then when I went to make my project I couldn't find which store I saw them

SO.... I found this one at Walgreens, it lights up and holds candy in the bottom!!!

I made a tag using the flag die and a sentiment from Jaded Blossom ,a SVG from Little Scraps of Heaven and Peachy Keen Critter face Stamps.

I used glossy accents on the light saber to make it shine~

and YES for all those who "know" Star Wars I realize I put a "good" guy with a red (bad) light saber LOL but red is all they had....and YEP I played with all of them in the store LOL !!!

Remember to follow and comment on all the blogs for a chance to win a yummy Jaded Blossom stamp set!!!

Peachy Keen Release Week !!!!

Whooo Hooo May's Peachy Keen Release is this Saturday!!!
There will be a release party plus several challenges to play along with us!!!

I wanted to show you a sneak of SEVERAL stamps you will see on their release!~

I created a BBQ banner using their new background stamp PK-117. I created the pennants to look like tablecloths by stamping them, stitching them with my sewing machine and punching the edges to look like lace.

For the Burger I used Simply Charmed Cricut cart, Echo Park paper and the SOTM PK-05 May for the face stamp.
The cute little lanterns are also from the Stamp of the Month for May. Using Echo Park paper and The Twinery twine.

In between each banner piece I used various ribbon and tulle ~

For the mustard and ketchup bottles I used PK-115 "Let's Ketchup" and to create the relish I used PK-116 "We go together"

The rosettes are made from a star punch and topped with letters from the Hannah Montana Cricut cartridge. All patterned paper is Echo Park except for the background I created myself ♥

The last banner piece I cut a hot dog from Simply Charmed, used a Peachy Face, ribbon and saying are all from the Peachy Keen SOTM for May !!!!

You can check out all the other designers projects HERE and dont forget to join us on Saturday for the release party !!!!
