So, I am back in the saddle!! I got a card and a LO done since yesterday afternoon! WOOT! So I used the Let's Scrap weekly sketch

and I made a Thank You card to leave for my brother that we are visiting next month.
I used popsicle stick broken in half for the poles, some string for the clothes line and I have had the little clothes pins in my stash forever. I went online and searched for a t-shirt clip art, then loaded it into my SCAL for my Cricut.

ALSO.. this adorable page I did for my brother. The weekly DT challenge 105 from Let's Scrap was to use at least 5 types of ribbon for a back ground or main embellie and use a Let's Scrap sketch. I used ls117 for inspiration. I think I nailed it.

The pictures are adorable to start with, especially the dog in the buggy with them!! The whole background is ribbon that I made into a plaid. I started on one side with the large ribbon, wove in the vertical ones and glued as I went. Quite a project, but I love the way it turned out. Even with all the ribbons and buttons, the black and white pictures really stand out. I used decorative scissors on the photos to replicate the way the old pics looked. At the top I glued some buttons on a piece of rick rack. Added a few to the names and on the bottom corner. VIOLA! I really like this page.

So I have been playing for 2 days  now, the house has been neglected. I need to make some lunch and do some house cleaning. Hopefully I can make it back to the crack room today :)
