Some lo's and a card

It's Monday, so we'll start off with today's Nuts Sketch:

Fabulous as usual and so many possibilities.

I just received my package from Nikki Sivils badge giveaway! I won the Noah line so I had to break it open and use it right?

I flipped the sketch to go with my photos, did lots of inking, some fussy cutting, doodled a border around the page, added some rub-on stitches and stickles. I couldn't just toss the part of the photo with Jayse's feet curled over in excitement, so even tho the page is John's bday, the journaling is all about how excited Jayse was to help blow out the candles and the heart shaped photo to the left of the journaling is his tiny, cute, curled feet.

I found a card challenge on the Bo Bunny blog and decided to try it out. Here's the sketch

and here's the card I came up with using their Ad Lib line.

I used my newest border punch for the loops on the pp, punched some butterflies to add over the top of some sticker ones I had and added a little jewel for the body. Then I put on the ribbon with lots of glue dots, added the sentiment and did a little doodling on the alphas and butterflies.

I also have some layouts I've been making for a crop over at My Scraps & More. She's doing another for the month of March. So if you're interested come sign up to play along and have some fun!

The February crop was music inspired so this first layout was based on some 80's hair bands. I used a lot of older stash supplies and some fun pictures of Jayse trying on John's hat.

This next layout is also about Jayse's hat obsession only he's not using a hat this time.

He's such a funny boy. I was just glad he did this before we broke in the potty seat. Again most of this is older stash supplies, but I did just get this washi tape and I had to try it out. I'm having a lot of fun with it. I see more in my future.

The last layout I have is based on a challenge that I obviously didn't read very well.

We were supposed to pick a song from a movie sound track, use the title as our lo title, use some lyrics on the lo and our favorite color. Then for extra pts. make a design element based on the song. It took me forever to find a song I wanted to use, but I came up with Watching You by Rodney Atkins and went to work with my Noah line again. I got the title and lyrics on there and then remembered I needed to use my fav color. Can anyone tell me WHY my favorite color is purple? Thinking I may need to change that. But I did a design element based on the lyrics (boots) in purple and had my lo all done.
Anyone see where this is going? Yep, totally forgot about the movie soundtrack part. rofl Oh well, I love the layout and I LOVE these photos of John and Jayse hugging while Jayse rubbed John's head.
So sweet.
