It's Gonna Be a Great Day!

Well, my Tuesday has certainly started out with a bang! I was browsing my Google Reader with my cup of coffee, and was so excited to see that this page was picked as a Fave at Let's Get Sketchy last week:

This card was picked as a winner at Paper Bakery Kits:

And I was a lucky winner from the Moxie Fab blog's Winnerday! Woo hoo!! I am feeling lucky and blessed today!


I stepped down from the design team over at Sketches 4 All at the end of April, but I still drop by to play along with some of their challenges when I get a chance, like this fantastic sketch from Becky Fleck over at PageMaps:


The twist was a Father's Day challenge to honor the special men in our lives, so I made a page about my husband's special relationship with our youngest daughter (she is QUITE the Daddy's Girl!):

Close-Ups:

 Supplies were all from my Inspired By Shimelle/June Counterfeit kit! Patterned paper/cardstock: Basic Grey Granola and Wisteria, Embellished with punched paper bits, a bit of fiber, Thickers (the asterisk is from the same sheet), the backside of the Tim Holtz Hitch Fastener (I snipped off some of the back of the screw with wire cutters and used a piece of tape to hold it in place), some of the Scrabble letter stickers, a Jenni Bowlin sticker mounted on a stapled tab (that I punched from a sheet of cardstock), and I added a bit of inking with my "messy item" to tie it all together.

  5. Well done you!! Loving the Daddy's Girl layout, your kit is really producing some gorgeous pages :0) I especially like the off the page starburst with the screwhead brad.
