NSD layouts

pulled some of my own kits out (the last layout is my first CKCB kit layout for May)and scrapped just for myself so I can use up my stash!







My May CKCB kit is finally ready!

I had the kit together last week but with Mother's Day and more going on, I haven't had a chance to post it...This month's Counterfeit Kit Challenge CKCB kit inspiration comes to us from a #TBT Quirky Kits 2014 kit called It's My Party:



and here's my papers-sorry for the terrible pic!I was inspired by the polka dots, the stripes and the gold...then threw in some older stash with bolder prints
and  their embellishment "You've Got the Love" add on kit:

 and mine:














Had some time during NSD to use my kit; will post some layouts later!

SBC challenges you with Sketch # 478!

478 


SKETCH #478 is up at Scrapbook Challenges and we'd love to see what you got!  I absolutely loved this sketch since it was so many possibilities and for once, I used more than 1 picture to show you exactly what I mean!  I dug into my February Clique kit (I know, I'm still using it :)) and used up more Maggie Holmes BLOOM deliciousness!

TGIF!! This one's for the girls (or women) at Challenge YOUrself!



Our April Challenge at Challenge YOURself is all about song lyrics this month!  Yep, a wonderful song by the super talented and beautiful Grammy award winning Martina McBride!  Her lyrics capture empowerment for "US girls" from age 13 and all the way up to my age {GULP} and more -It's all about GIRL EMPOWERMENT this month! I chose to scrap a recent photo from a girl's trip I just took in 2016 with old and new friends!
 Lyrics:
This is for all you girls about thirteen,
High school can be so rough can be so mean,
Hold on to on to your innocence,
Stand your ground when everybody's givin' in.

This one's for the girls
This is for all you girls about twenty five,
In little apartments just tryin' to get by,
Livin' on on dreams and spaghetti-o's,
Wonderin' where your life is gonna go.

This one's for the girls,
Who've ever had a broken heart,
Who've wished upon a shooting star,
You're beautiful the way you are,
This one's for the girls,
Who love without holdin' back,
Who dream with everything they have,
All around the world,
This one's for the girls.

This is for all you girls about forty two,
Tossin' pennies into the fountain of youth,
Every laugh line on your face,
Made you who you are today.

This one's for the girls,
Who've ever had a broken heart,
Who've wished upon a shooting star,
You're beautiful the way you are,
This one's for the girls,
Who love without holdin' back,
Who dream with everything they have,
All around the world,
This one's for the girls.

Yeah we're all the same inside,
From one to ninety nine

This one's for the girls,
Who've ever had a broken heart,
Who've wished upon a shooting star,
You're beautiful the way you are,
This one's for the girls,
Who love without holdin' back,
Who dream with everything they have,
All around the world,
This one's for the girls.


Our challenge # 28 at ChallengeYOUrself this month is to create a layout and to interpret this song ANY WAY YOU WANT!  Just as long as YOU are in the photo!

0216_Lori

That's right!  We're inspired by her awesome card making skills and we're switching things up a bit.  I bet there's a few folks in your like who would love to get some surprise "just because I was thinking about you" happy mail!  And I'll admit it, I don't normally send cards because I am THE WORST card maker, BUT I was inspired by the challenge and since I'm on the DT, I tried!!
 LoriCrush_Kate
I'll probably send it out but will junk it up a bit before I do..  don't forget we are in the final week of craftiness for February but you have lots of time to link up your projects {HERE}
