Moxxie fun

Hey everyone!
I don't know about you but June has been one crazy whirlwind month for me so far. We've been running from softball to baseball to play practices to volleyball and then we threw in a little dance for good measure. I love all of these activities and watching my kids enjoy them, but it has definitely made me a little dizzy. So, now that my excuses are in place I want to catch you up on some scrappy stuff I've been doing.
We'll start off with this week's NAS sketch layout. I might have mentioned I'm not big on 2 page layouts, so to be honest I was planning to skip this sketch but I am SO glad I didn't! Check out what I came up with:
I absolutely LOVE this layout! This is my littlest, Jayse, at our local carnival last year, enjoying all the fun rides with different family members. I really loved these photos and was happy with how they turned out. So I had to have the perfect papers for this lo right? Enter Moxxie Midway Madness! This line is PERFECT!!
 You can see that I pretty much just followed the sketch using pattern papers, cardstock element & border stickers and die-cuts from the Moxxie line. I did border punch the white cs and ink with turquoise and then inked all my pp's with black, including my journaling strips. I've also used some pop-dots on some of the journaling strips and the title to make it a little more fun. Then I found this cute little package of 3D carnival stickers that I picked up somewhere at some point and put them to good use. Last I added the border along the top with staples. Easy and fun!

I have two more Moxxie projects to share with you. First this cute layout of my daughter trying to get my attention when I was taking photos of the other kids on the swings. She wanted to be in on the photo fun too, so she came up with her own move and did a "mommy, look at me". lol She is so fun!

Here I used the Moxxie Child's Play line. I used the back of Walk in the Park, which was really hard because the front is SO cute, but it was just what I needed. Then I cut down my photos to focus on my daughter and really distressed the edges, I added the cute border stickers and placed the photos, made my pinwheels from the It's a Breeze paper, placed them and added the dots from the sticker sheet and their 'sticks' are cut from a border sticker. I layered and pop-dotted the Joy at the top and placed the title (that sticker quote was the inspiration for this entire layout!), hand drew the wavy lines for journaling and then journaled. Then added the little banner under the journaling, the tab to the photo and a little doodling for a bit more interest.

Next I have a father's day card for you. I used the Moxxie Hole in One line for this.

First I measured an envelope I had on hand so I knew the dimensions to use for the card. I cut the paper down to size and used a wavy edge cutter for the front flap. I wanted the Golf is Life sticker for the front but it was a bit long so I snipped bits off each side with my scissors to make it fit, then layered it with pop-dots onto the fun die-cut. I also added some cute element stickers to the front.

 For the inside I cut a small banner from pp, added the fun die-cut quote, stamped the happy fathers day, added it with pop-dots and finished it off with the cute golf ball die-cut in the corner. This card is perfect for my dad because lately he's been using golf analogies for almost every subject we've chatted about. Plus, he likes golfing. :)
