Having Some Jillibean Kind of Fun!

Howdy! I have a layout to share with you that I made just now! I had seen this layout sketch over at the Jillibean Soup Blog and I had wanted to play along with the challenge, but you have to post it on their Facebook page. Well, I don't "do" FB, so I thought I'd just post my page here on my blog and see if they accept it. :) 
I used some of my awesome "Sweet and Sour Soup" paper along with a few embellishments from the "Blossom Soup" collection and some stickers from the "Dutch Mustard Soup" line. Jillibean Soup just makes me HAPPY! :) The only items I used that WEREN'T Jillibean Soup was Studio Calico mist (in Estate Green!) and solid cardstock.
You can find the sketch here

I love pennants! I loved this sketch because it helped me showcase so much of this beautiful patterned paper! Yes, I am a patterned paper addict!

Hope this is a grrrrreat week for you!

Check out my new tab!

I am getting into making card sketches (and maybe eventually layout sketches too)! I just figured out how to add them on a separate page on my blog. So, go check them out! I'll be adding more whenever I do them, and I'll share some of my creations from them as well here on my blog. Thanks!

Howdy! I hope you're having a great week so far! Just wait and it'll already be Friday! :)

I have a card to share with you that is for 2 (actually 3) separate challenges!
I used an inspiration photo
from Pretty Little Studio here and a sketch from The Paper Bakery kit challenge here. A lady from their Design Team named Amanda introduced me to their sketches the other day and I just HAD to participate in the challenge! I used some old Aeropostale tags I have been saving for a while; I thought they looked really interesting on this card. I added the little cluster to add some OOMPH to the card. Now I don't know if I'll be able to mail it safely! LOL
