Summer Vacation 2011

My mom, 2 of my sisters (+families) , hubby & I all met up in California a few weeks ago to go to DISNEYLAND!

& to remember it all I created this scrapbook layout...
Disney SB 

No need to count.. there are 36 photos spread out on these 2 pages- didn't think I could get them all to fit, but it is a great "overview" of our 2 days @Disneyland!  More themed pages to come I'm sure :)

Here are close ups of each page

Beach Boy Cole!

I'm back to share the last spotlight of By LORi Designs June digis... Beach Boy Cole! (You can buy him and all the other June digis HERE!)
Hello Summer Cole
Seriously wishing I had a beach nearby- it is so stinkin' HOT here!  I guess I'll take it for the beautiful winter weather we get here :)

I also took this opportunity to play along with my fabulous design-team- Jen Shults' Deconstructed Sketch #7!

LOVE these sketches- always a fun challenge for me. Especially the last two cards I've made- I'm not usually a square card maker ;)

Please go to the By LORi Designs blog and check out the other fabulous creations from the rest of the design team and add these adorable digis to your collection HERE!!

Gettin' Sketchy w/TPE!

Happy Monday! Hope you all enjoyed your weekends! I spent most of mine indoors enjoying the cool air-conditioning... we're definitely in the summer heat here in AZ, it was 111+ degrees all weekend! {blech}

Anyway, on to this week's challenge over at The Pink Elephant. LORi created this fab sketch for us to play with...

I used the sketch to make my MIL her birthday card!
Tulip Trio

I just picked up this Hero Arts tulip stamp from Michaels a few weeks ago and couldn't wait to color it!  I went a little crazy with the white dots too {LOL}
