A post to share...

 Well, hello! I am excited to tell you that I MAY have found a way I can blog from home! (We have dial-up internet here at home and no one offers wireless where we live, so I have been going to the library to use their wi-fi internet to post here!)

I have found a way to resize my pictures using Picasa and then I think I can upload them and it still work relatively fast!! So, here's a toast to *hopefully* blogging more than just layouts and cards I enter into contests!! :)

I used some yummy Pink Paislee "Gypsy Chick" paper on this page, along with some fabulous Dear Lizzy foam letter Thickers! I scraplifted this layout design from a page I saw in the June 2010 Scrapbooks Etc. magazine. I know, it's from last year, but I have had this design in mind just for these pictures. And I am happy to say I FINALLY did the page!
I hope you enjoy looking at it!

Oh! One more thing! It's about that bottome left picture of the purple weed-flower. (Haha.) I loved the full 4x6 of it because you could see the Smoky Mountains behind it (I took it while we were at Cades Cove), in the unfocused part of the picture. But, I had to cut it up so it would fit right on the page. So I decided to share the WHOLE picture on here. :) Isn't it pretty?!
Thanks for visiting my blog!

Sassy Lil Card- June 21st

3 posts in one day! Wow, right?! ;p Here's my June 21st Sassy Lil Sketches card. I moved over the sentiment so I could put it on the flower twirly thing. :) I used Echo Park's "Sweet Summertime" line for the paper.

Sketchy Thursdays 6.23.11

Guess what?! I did another Sketchy Thursdays layout from the sketch this time! :O I changed it a little bit- I had to push all the pictures together because I didn't want to chop part of the picture off that kinda tells the story! I got to use some of my NEW My Mind's Eye paper- from the "Fine & Dandy" line. I love it.

Frosted Designs Friday Challenge

The Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge this past week was to use black and white and one color on a layout or card. I thought about it a while because I am not used to limiting myself on color! Haha. I have had this pack of B/W printed 5x7's for a while that I had bought at Tuesday Morning and never got to use because I forgot about them. So I got it out and, since I love the color turquoise, I used that to accent. (If you can't tell, the stitching and is blue too)

My First Sketchy Thursdays Layout! (6.16.11)

  I'm exploring a new avenue! A lot of the members over at ClubCK participate in the Sketchy Thursdays challenges. I usually don't do them because I am always worried I'll get a page done and then forget to link it up to their blog! :P Haha. Well, I actually participated in the challenge this time, and hopefully their sketches will inspire me to scrapbook some layouts!! I was so eager to use this Splash Echo Park paper- I just bought it and was DYING to use it. I thought this sketch worked very nicely for "showcasing" all the different pieces of patterned paper in the little mini pad I bought. I stuck pretty close to the sketch, since I'm kinda new to the Sketchy Thursdays challenges. :)

A Sassy Lil Sketches Card

 Sorry I haven't been blogging in a LONG time! I wish I could do a post every single day, but we have dial-up internet and so that's just not possible right now. I have to some here to the library to use the wi-fi!! So here's a card to make up the "lost time." LOL I finally got to use my Dear Lizzy Spring paper! Yay! I love that stuff. I absolutely loved the sketch this time- I know, I know, I say that every time! :)

Sketch It To Me Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to the Sketch It To Me Blog Hop! :) My name's Heather and I am a teenage scrapper. I love making cards just about as much as I love scrapping pictures. Enjoy my creations, and please do come back and visit my blog sometime! :)

If you didn't arrive here from Andrea's blog, go back to Amanda's blog and start hopping from there.

The theme for this blog hop is as you can tell by the title, sketches. Amanda created a lovely sketch for us to base all of our layouts and projects off of. I made a card for my "extra" project. So, here's the sketch:

And here's my take on it. This picture on this layout is from my little cousin's 1st birthday. His mom made all the "little guests" a party hat. They were so cute! :)

And here's my card made from the sketch. Very plain, simple, and easy to make. All the supplies are from American Crafts, except for the twine. I got that from hobbiesfromtheheart on Etsy.

Thanks for looking! Don't forget to leave a comment- Amanda's picking someone from a random blog to win a prize! This blog might just be the one she picks from! Now, after you've commented, hop on to Becky- I'm sure she has something creative to show you! :)
