PTW & Get Sketchy Challenges

Here are this weeks card for the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly Challenge : Card is to have spots & stripes Get Sketchy: card is to follow this sketch....

So what I did is use this sketch to do the PTW challenge.. Kill two birds with one stone.
Once again i'm a simple girl.. plain and simple! Hope you like my CARD:

BLOG CANDY! Love it!!

So i was blog hopping (looking for card challenges) and came across another blog candy! I hope I win!!! Please visit PINK PIGGY

More Challenges!

Ok this card is for the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge. We had to use Pink, brown, ribbon, glitter and a stamped image. I don't have big stamp images from PKS but I do have the face stamps so i used that. I promise if i WIN, I will buy the nice big stamps ! :)

Its a very simple card. Hmm.. just realized you can't see the glitter. The glitter is on the circles in the scallops.

I am also entering this card in the Papertake Weekly Challenge sketch 26. We just had to use the sketch on their blog.

Like i said simple simple.. nothing as elaborate as the other ladies.

Cuttlebug Challenge #54

Another Challenge! I kinda like this! The green spider paper is from a package I bought at the dollar spot in Target. The spiderweb i cut from PaperDoll Dress up Cricut Cartridge. I cuttlebugged the gree paper with the folder that has grass and a bird on it. I don't remember the name of the folder I just made sure I didn't emboss the bird.

Hope you like! Take a look at the other entries at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot.

Video: 2page Scrap Layout

Ok, Yes i know its been forever since i've done a video. I got up from bed and decided I needed to continue my vacation album. I've been doing 2 page layouts because I took lots of pictures!

For this layout, I decided to use my cricut, stamps and brads. Hmmm now come to think of it, I should of used the cuttlebug too!

Hope you enjoy the video. Please leave comments! Please turn off the player so you can hear the video! :) Hope you like my music! :) To turn off music scroll down to the bottom of the page and press pause or stop.
FYI: It took me from 3:00 to about 10 pm to finish this! Of course during this time i got frustrated when to Home Depot.. Then came back to continue..

I also remember waking up Sunday mornings to the smell of tortillas that my mom was making and the music! awwww I loved being a KID!

PHEW! Well, First album was created at the HOUSE OF FELKATZ! hehehe...

Well, as I mentioned it was not really mine but my step daughters. She had to create a baby album for her science class. It had to be about her element "TUNGSTEN". It had to have baby photo, birth news... a poem.. family members.. career goals..etc.

She did the album on her own. I only helped by making suggestions. I loaded paper on mat and I was the only one allowed to touch my "E"! She's a sophmore in HIgh school but still its my TOY! Anyway, I showed her how to use Sure Cuts ALot and the cuttlebug and she went to town with it! She picked out all the colors of clothing etc.. and did everything.

I had suggested to use O wires for the book but she wanted to put only ribbon. Oh well... I think its AWESOME! She really worked hard on it!

Please leave a comment.. she was would really like to hear what you think.. She was like your going to post it on YOUTUBE? I said yes.. don't worry your full n…
